Jewish Press: Upstart Democratic congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez decried the “occupation of Palestine” during a television interview but was at a loss when pressed to explain what she actually meant.
Even a moderate Democrat like Cory Booker, previously close to the Jewish community, saw fit to pose with BDS representatives as a means of flaunting his progressive credentials. In general, the progressive view sees Jews not only as “white” but as racists and victimizers because of their presumed power. All this exemplifies the slow erosion of Israel’s status in American culture.
But the disconnect runs even deeper. Like Cortez, the children of the Oslo era don’t remember the negotiations in the 1990s, or then-PLO Chairman Yasser Arafat for that matter, and have grown up on slogans with buzzwords like “occupation” and “intifada.” more …
Opinion: What we are seeing, not just with Democrats but all over the world, is some of Satan’s finest work carried out by a perpetual liar like Yasser Arafat and continued by his deputy Mahmoud Abbas: deception of the nations.
Satan failed at the birth of Jesus, even after convincing an Idumean king (a descendant of Esau named Herod) to order all children of Judea two and under killed to eliminate the Christ (Matthew 2:16-18). Satan later failed when he tempted Jesus to bow down to him (Matthew 4:1-11), and Satan failed at the cross where heaven was opened for all who would accept the pardon for sin that the death of Jesus provides (John 19:28-30).
Willful ignorance is every bit as evil as outright knowing and continuing the deception. The driver of a getaway car is just as guilty as the robber, and a high ranking cleric that knowingly moved pedophile priests to new parishes is just as guilty as the pedophile.
In each example when justice is delayed on earth there is a much higher court:
“Vengeance is Mine, and recompense;
Their foot shall slip in due time;
For the day of their calamity is at hand,
And the things to come hasten upon them.’’ Deuteronomy 32:35
“Repay no one evil for evil. Have regard for good things in the sight of all men. 18 If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men. 19 Beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is written, “VengeanceisMine, I will repay,” says the Lord.” Romans 12:17-19
Satan will fail again:
Revelation 19:11-16: Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war. His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns. He had a name written that no one knew except Himself. He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God. And the armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses. Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written:
KING OF KINGS AND
LORD OF LORDS.
