Betrayal with a kiss
News item: “The Czech Republic may find it increasingly difficult to maintain its largely pro-Israel stance should the Jewish state fail to take viable steps toward establishing a Palestinian state and achieving regional peace,” Czech Foreign Minister Lubomír Zaorálek warned Israel Monday (June 8, 2015). He slammed the government of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for building homes for Jews in Israel’s ancient heartland. “As a close friend of yours, it is important for the Czech Republic to say that if the situation does not change it will be hard to maintain our position” [as your friends], Zaorálek said, according to the Times of Israel.
The Czech’s comments closely echoed those made by US President Barack Obama earlier this month, “highlighting growing frustration with Israel over the lack of peace progress from two of the country’s most steadfast allies”.
Who on earth, one is left wondering, do the American and Czech (and other so-called friends of Israel) think that they are? And who do they think they are dealing with?
Do they honestly believe that they want peace more than Israel does? Do they really believe that they know what’s good for Israel better than Israel does?
Can they truly be so awfully arrogant as to stand and wag a finger at Israel -scolding or condemning this little nation that for decades has had to survive the keffiyeh-sporting, shark-infested waters of the Muslim Middle East?
It is the height of hubris for nations that know no existential threat to tell people who have been offering their sons and daughters on the altar of compulsory military service and fielding them in war after war after war that they are not serious about peace.
And they sink to the depths of dishonesty, those nations who continue to insist that Israel – which has done far, far more than any other nation in the history of the world to make peace with its enemies – is to blame for the absence of peace.
Obama and Zaorálek, don’t be absurd. What do you know about what generations of Israelis have had to bear? What do you know about the sleepless nights and stomach-knotting fear that countless Jews go through today every time there is a spike in violence from the Hamas in Gaza or the Hizballah in Lebanon, who – as the terror chief of that group did just a week ago – threatens to burn half of Israel with fire?
Do you honestly think you know how to teach Israel to make peace? Does your conceit really reach so high?
Why is it, President Obama, that I have never heard you stand up and say to the Palestinian Arabs (or their masters in the Arab League), “Your hatred of the Jews and your commitment to Israel’s destruction are the obstacles to peace.” Why have I never heard European leaders say to Mahmoud Abbas or to Yasser Arafat before him, “Your hands are drenched in Jewish blood; your bloodlust that has you sending Arab terrorists to murder Jews, your incessant spreading of anti-Semitic hatred and poisoning of the minds of your own people against the Jews is the real reason there is no peace in the Middle East.”
Somebody needs to tell Obama and Zaorálek and other western leaders a few home truths. When they rail against the democratically elected government of a country they are railing against the voting population. They are opposing the democratic will of the nation.
And in Israel’s case, the nation has only just re-elected Netanyahu, giving him their vote of confidence in the face of brazen efforts by the United States and Europe to coerce or scare Israelis away from supporting him.
Israel should tell these men to take a hike. If these are the kind of friends they are going to be – these “Judeo-Christian” countries who, emulating the spirit of Martin Luther, are only friendly as long as the Jews are open to being ‘converted’ to their ‘two state solution’ and threaten to turn against them when they don’t play ball – well, Israel hardly needs friends like them.
Obama, Zaorálek – you are enemies of the will of the Israeli people. Either keep quiet or stop portraying yourselves as friends.
Or do you betray Israel with a kiss?
Your arrogance is reaching to the heavens. And Heaven has warned that it will respond. It matters not whether you are the Islam-empathizing president of the United States, or the foreign minister of the most secular country in Europe that has little room for God – the Lord will deal with you.
Instead of championing the nation you fall over yourselves to insist that you love and care for, a nation that just a few decades ago faced extinction, and which would face extinction again if the Arab world had its way – you are siding with Israel’s enemies and playing ‘diplomatic’ games with the fate of His people.
Christians in these nations – in any nation that is – which against international law and morality and fairness and righteousness are trying to impose their will on Israel, to force Israel to assent to the creation of a state of Palestine: it’s past time to stop pussyfooting around these issues; it’s time to wake up. Your nation’s fates are in the balances.
Devastation will come to your countries if your leaders insist on pushing Israel to take steps you know threaten her with destruction.
The God of Israel is on the way. When He arrives to judge our nations, His anger is going to be terrible.
