"Israeli Prime Minister Should Be Declared A War Criminal"

According to the Bolivian president.

"The Israeli government's crimes affect global stability and peace and have returned the world to the worst stage of crimes against humanity that we hadn't seen except in World War II and in the last years in the former Yugoslavia and Rwanda".

It was the terrorists that started this war. Israel invaded Gaza in a kind of "defensive offense", if you will. Most people seem to think that if Israel wasn't attacking the Muslims this war would stop.
Wrong. That would merely free up the terrorists to attack other the United States!

There are several things not being taken into consideration here. First of all, no matter how hard the Muslims try, the people of Israel will never be destroyed. The Lord has promised blessing on the descendants of Abraham (Genesis 15). Even when God sought to destroy the Israelites, He remembered the covenant He made with Abraham (Exodus 32:9-14). Secondly, for at least three thousand years there has been war between the children of Isaac and the children of Ishmael. This conflict was ordained by God (Genesis 16:12).

No matter what the Bolivian president says, or what the UN does, God word will come to pass.

Nice post!

I don't understand how so many people can think that Israel started this war.

Anyway, we read the back of the book, and it says we win.

I roundly agree with your closing comment, and am even inclined to sympathize with the Israelis in this conflict... but are you certain the promises of Genesis 15 apply to the modern state of Israel?

Romans 9:6 explains that more than genetic descent is required to inherit these blessings: "Not as though the word of God had taken none effect. For they [are] not all Israel which are of Israel: Neither, because they are the seed of Abraham, [are they] all children..." Rather than applying exclusively to Abraham's children by birth, Galatians 3:7 indicates that these promises are for his children by faith: "Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham."

So while I'm certainly no expert on how the modern nation of Israel fits into the grand scheme of God's plan, I'm disinclined to believe that they have legitimate claim on any scriptural blessings until such time as they acknowledge the true Messiah, Jesus Christ.

Mr. Ferrill:

Like you, I'm no expert on Israel's modern situation.

I do think that God has promised that he will never destroy the Israelites, but will always preserve a remnant. This is obvious to me through various historical events when it seemed that the Jews would be obliterated, but weren't through God's providence.

I don't think that the condition of being of Jewish descent entitles them to any special blessing, any more than being born into a Southern household automatically makes me a Confederate. Perhaps thats not the best example, but I think you know where I'm coming from.

Did I adequately answer your questions?

Thanks for the comment!
