Washington Free Beacon: “Democratic presidential contender Bernie Sanders has tapped several critics of Israel to advise him on foreign policy, including one who has compared Israelis to “Nazis” and accused them of waging “a Holocaust.”
Sanders, who is Jewish and had family members slaughtered during the Holocaust, recently disclosed that his top foreign policy advisers include J Street, a dovish Middle East advocacy group that backs some of Congress’ most vocal critics of Israel, former assistant Secretary of Defense Larry Korb, and James Zogby, an Israel detractor who heads the Arab American Institute.
The inclusion of these advisers in the Sanders’ campaign, which has already come under fire for ignoring prominent Jewish-American political organizations, has prompted speculation from some that the presidential hopeful will pursue anti-Israel foreign policy priorities.”
Opinion: Sounds crazy, doesn’t it? A Jewish politician who is anti-Israel? It is, however, important to separate anti-Israel from anti-Semitism.
Many secular Jews oppose PM Netanyahu, who is an OT Bible believer, and resent his views of God’s role in Israel’s past, present and future. Bernie could care less, in the same way that Moshe Dayan handed the Temple Mount over to Edomite hands after the Six Day War of 1967.
Just yesterday, our post on labor leader Yitzhak Herzog’s “separation plan” from the Palestinian Arabs involving a unilateral division of Israel, is not unusual in Israeli liberal circles.
It drives us Gentiles crazy, but 42% of Israel’s Jews are secular and in that respect, sound like many Christian denominations that see little or no meaning in the prophesied rebirth (Isaiah 11:11, 66:7-8) of Israel in 1948. I had a family member once ask me why they didn’t put the Jews in some corner of Africa and let them start their country there, away from the Arab peoples.
It’s just plain incredible how few Jews and Christians see any need for a Jewish state, accept the Edomite cause to divide Jerusalem, and make no connection to the wars of the last days and the necessity of every Jew being back in the land (Ezekiel 39:22).
It is generally accepted that only 9% of Christians hold a Biblical world view. The interesting point here, from a prophetic view, is how else could the Church of Laodicea (Revelation 3:14-22) be under construction?
That is the Church of which Jesus said “I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth.”
