YNet News: “We are witnessing unnecessary and irritating bloodshed. It could have ended long ago. It can be ended, maybe, just maybe, as soon as tomorrow.
When Israel embarks on a battle of this kind, it is waging a double battle: One on the ground, the other over the global public opinion. Israel should know that it will not succeed on the ground without succeeding on the public opinion front. The world is not interested in the mass murder committed by ISISI, as we speak, in Syria. Nor is it interested in the abuse of Christians in Musul. The world is only interested in Gaza, because that’s where the cameras are.
So Israel must make a move: It must accept Hamas’ conditions, add to them, and announce its agreement to a ceasefire, in exchange for the Strip’s demilitarization by an international force.”
Opinion: And there you go. The Israeli government knows that they cannot win the war of public opinion. After Inquisitions, Pogroms and Holocausts over thousands of years, Jews know what the outcome will be … this time.
But some day, possibly tomorrow, all this will change. Someday Hamas or some other Muslim Brotherhood terror group will not stop and the first prophetic war of the last days will commence.
We don’t know for sure if Christians will be here for Psalm 83. I have always hoped we would be, since it would give us a chance to warn those who we care about.
Our job is to watch.
