What about those under the age of 18? What do they think about Israel? A recent article in the Jerusalem Post explained that, “Around five dozen individuals, some associated with Hamas and collectively boasting more than 100 million social media followers, have been waging a propaganda campaign against Israel on various social media platforms since the start of the Swords of Iron war on October 7.”
Which side are you on? Do you know? There are only two. From the moment you get up in the morning until you go to sleep at night, you take one side or the other.
The pro-Palestinian organization Students for Justice in Palestine announced Thursday, October 12 to be a "Day of Resistance" and called for a coordinated series of protests on college campuses to support the Hamas attacks on Israel and speak out against "Zionism." And what a day it was.
Persuading others to embrace and perpetrate evil is not as difficult as we might think. All it really takes is a good marketing plan and an adept salesperson or, for a larger population, a committed sales force. Selling evil that appears evil can be a hard sell, but if it is repackaged as something that looks good or desirable, well, there are plenty of takers. This is not an altogether new concept. It is as old as the Garden of Eden.
Words cannot express the horror and disgust that have been aroused by the recent surprise attacks on Israel by Hamas. The wanton torture, slaughter, and kidnapping of innocent children, youth, and elderly by Hamas terrorists cannot be justified, and witnesses declare that the unspeakable atrocities they committed are reminiscent of the Holocaust! And to top it off, those despicable acts have been met with praise and applause by some!
To this point in my life, I have had the pleasure of visiting three foreign countries. The memories of each hold a special place in my heart, punctuated by stunning views, friendships (and delicious meals shared) with some of the strongest and kindest people I’ve ever met, and a life-changing realization of the depth of God’s love for the world.
Never underestimate a heart of hatred. Every day in the news there are acts of unspeakable brutality around our world. Over the last several days, Israel has witnessed again just how deep the work of the Evil One can unfold in a human heart. On Wednesday of this week, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed his nation detailing atrocities that had occurred during the terrorist incursion into Israel last weekend. It wasn’t just killing. It was how people died.
As the four-year anniversary of the mass shooting of Dallas police officers passes, a lawsuit has been reopened which alleges that social media outlets allowed the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas to radicalize Micah Johnson, leading the former U.S. Army reservist to take the lives of five police officers while injuring nine others.
President Barack Obama declared in his recent address to the nation that “ISIL is not Islamic.” But how does he know? On what basis did the president of the United States declare that a group of Muslims that calls itself the “Islamic State” is “not Islamic?”
If this assessment was true in Gilbert Keith’s day, how much more so today? What we consider Christian virtues have been pulled apart to the point of complete isolation. These virtues are meant to be grouped together as different facets of a complete individual, but as the deconstruction of our culture has progressed, they have been amputated and mutated as Chesterton describes.
