The descendants of Jacob and the descendants of Ishmael and Esau are polar opposites in their approach to almost everything. The descendants of Jacob, in fact, are polar opposites of many peoples. Below are some of the differences:
Israel vs. Arabs
Israel became a nation overnight on May 14, 1948. The Arab nations attacked and tried to drive the Jews into the sea. Israel won that war, keeping the minimal amount of land deeded to them by the British and the United Nations. In 1967, the Arab nations attacked again. Israel won again, taking back the city of Jerusalem. In 1973, the Arab nations attacked again, this time on the holiest Jewish holiday. Israel won again, this time gaining large amounts of land.
Each time the Arabs have attacked Israel, Israel has gained territory. When Arabs conquer a territory, they then deem it to be theirs for all eternity. When Israel gains territory, it more often than not gives it back! David Horowitz puts it this way: “Israel’s territorial gains did not come from Israel attacking the Arabs. They came from Israel being attacked by the Arabs. And Israel has always tried to give the land back in exchange for peace, as it did when it voluntarily returned the Sinai Peninsula – which is bigger than Israel itself – back to the Egyptians who had tried to attack them from the Sinai, and likewise, they gave the Gaza Strip back to the Palestinians who had attacked them – from the Gaza strip.”
Israel vs. Hamas And Its Allies
Hamas and its allies daily call for the annihilation of Israel. Israel wants nothing more than to live in peace with its neighbors. Israel makes every effort to adhere to keep a truce agreement. Hamas is incapable of keeping a truce. Just hours after the July 31, 2014 three day agreement was signed, Palestinian terrorists attacked an IDF unit killing two Israeli soldiers. The soldiers names are Major Benaya Sarel, 26, a Givati officer from Kiryat Arbba, and Staff-Sargent Liel Gidoni, 20, a Givati soldier from Jerusalem. A third soldier, thought to have been captured, Second Lieutenant Hadar Goldin, a 23-year-old Givati officer from Kfar Saba, was later declared dead. Benjamin Netanyahu has warned the Obama Administration (OBAD) including Secretary of State John Kerry about Hamas telling them “not ‘to ever second guess me again’ on the matter. The officials also said Netanyahu said he should be ‘trusted’ on the issue and about the unwillingness of Hamas to enter into and follow through on cease-fire talks.”
Hamas sends thousands of rockets into Israel unannounced, launching their missiles into Israel from schools, homes, and hospitals. Israel sends emails, drops leaflets, calls cell phones. Israel then flies over in a last minute effort to determine if civilians are visibly present. If they are, Israel calls off the strike.
Israel makes every effort to target only military positions. Hamas targets civilians. Hamas digs tunnels to invade Israel. Israel uses technology to detect them. The missiles and bombs Hamas uses generally prove ineffective. Israel’s missiles and bombs rarely miss their intended targets. Joshua Charles puts it this way: “The world seems largely blind to the moral chasm dividing Hamas from Israel and the Israelis’ sacred right to self-defense as a beleaguered state protecting a beleaguered people against terrorist attacks on civilians carried out by men who use civilians to protect the barbarous weapons of their infernal trade.”
Hamas leaders use civilians as shields. Israeli military officers are at the forefront of the battles, hiding behind no one. Hamas leaders declare: “We love death for Allah like you love life. Today you Israelis are fighting divine soldiers.” Hamas and its allies use suicide bombers to carry bombs and blow themselves up, taking out whoever else they can. Israel never uses suicide bombers. Hamas places its military command centers under hospitals. Its main command bunker is located underneath the Shifa Hospital in Gaza City. Israel uses it hospitals to give medical aid to whomever needs it – friend or foe.
Israel vs. ISIS/ISIL
When ISIS/ISIL butchers thousands of people, the world barely notices. When Israel kills even a single Arab or Palestinian, the outcry goes on for days. ISIS/ISIL is now reported to have obtained chemical weapons and then used them on Kurdish militia. It also implements a brutal form of Sharia Law upon citizens of the cities it captures. Israel never uses chemical weapons and does not subject people to such atrocities outlined by Sharia laws. ISIS/ISIL continues to attack both Iraq and Syria, with little further mention by the mainstream media. ISIS/ISIL is well connected to Hamas and its allies. The Islamic State in Iraq and in Syria is still very much so advancing its conquest of other peoples.
Israel vs. The United States
The United States has used drone strikes to kill several thousand suspected terrorists. The US sends these drones throughout the entire world to take out those it deems a threat to national security. American media takes little notice. Israel cannot even kill a single known terrorist within its own borders without American media covering it for days. The US invades other countries at will, but then its leaders sermonize Israeli leaders for using the Iron Dome system which merely destroys incoming missiles. The US sympathizes with Hamas – after all, Hamas is powerless to do much damage to the US. And then its POTUS and its Secretary of State lead the world in condemning Israel. Do not be fooled into thinking that their true feelings towards Israel have changed just because they are currently hammering Hamas for violating the most recent truce, or for their $225 million re-funding of the Iron Dome system!
Israel vs. The World
Israelis want to live in peace, to have their own country to enjoy. Many peoples of the world, however, would like to see the Jews utterly annihilated. Anti-Semitism and Anti-Israel sentiment is growing by leaps and bounds, especially in European nations. The nations of the world thought nothing of carpet bombing German and Japanese cities in World War II, killing thousands of civilians. More recently, the United States thought little of carpet bombing Iraq to remove Saddam Hussein. But those same nations today take great offense that Israel uses strategic targeting to take out enemy positions in countries that wish them annihilated. Today, many nations and cities are seeing pro-Palestine / anti-Israel demonstrations in increasing numbers. Today, many nations and cities are seeing pro-Palestine / anti-Israel demonstrations in increasing numbers. Europe is especially becoming a center of anti-Semitism. Latin America has joined in these efforts. The United Nations even expects Israel to give the Iron Dome system to Hamas. What lunacy!
Israel Belongs To Yahweh
Deuteronomy 7:6 – “Yahweh has chosen you out of all the peoples on the face of the earth to be his people, his treasured possession.”
Psalm 121:4 – “Behold, he who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.”
The final difference, the most remarkable of them all, is that Israel belongs to Yahweh. Its people are his chosen. And he never sleeps. Recent articles have stated that the reason the Hamas rockets do not reach their intended targets is because Yahweh changes “the direction of rockets in mid-air.” This has been corroborated by an Iron Dome operator whose battery failed three times who stated: “Suddenly, Iron Dome (which calculates wind speeds, among other things) shows a major wind coming from the east, a strong wind that…sends the missile into the sea. We were all stunned. I stood up and shouted, ‘There is a God!’ I witnessed this miracle with my own eyes. It was not told or reported to me. I saw the hand of God send that missile into the sea.”
Zechariah 12-14, Joel 3, Zephaniah 2 and other scriptures tell is that all nations that come against Israel and/or Jerusalem will be destroyed. Hatred of Israel and the Israeli people is just a symptom of hatred of Yahweh. Israel is a nation set apart that Yahweh plans to establish as the premier nation of the world. He will never let it fall again.
Prophecy continues to unfold as foretold by the Hebrew prophets. The stage is being set. History is moving extremely quickly towards the prophesied one world government, the one world financial system, and the rise of both the Antichrist and the False Prophet. The birth pangs are just over the horizon. Yeshua Ha’Mashiach is coming soon – get busy reaching the lost.
