Arutz Sheva: A national survey found that Democrats are twice as likely as Republicans to believe that prejudice against Jews is a serious problem in the US and that antisemitism poses a growing threat to Jews.

The divide between Republicans and Democrats in the Quinnipiac University survey released Wednesday tracks with previous polling — but it also comes after weeks of antisemitic invective from the rapper and designer Kanye West, who now identifies as a Christian conservative and who has courted Republicans.

It also comes after former President Donald Trump, a Republican, dined with West, who is now known as Ye, and Nick Fuentes, a prominent Holocaust denier, and after multiple government and nonprofit groups have reported spikes in reported attacks on Jews.

The survey released Wednesday showed 83% of Democrats identifying prejudice against Jews as a very serious or somewhat serious problem. Just 44% of Republicans agreed with those assessments. Overall, a substantive majority, 60%, agreed that prejudice against Jews is a serious problem. Read More …

Opinion: The world’s oldest hatred is complicated by the fact that seemingly caring large numbers of (denominational) Christians, both Democrat and Republican, favor a division of God’s land, giving Arabs East Jerusalem and the Temple Mount as a Palestinian capital. Yet often, those same Christians will say they are pro-Israel.

Majority in U.S. Again Support Palestinian Statehood

According to a February (2020) Gallup poll, 55% of Americans support the establishment of an independent Palestinian state, while 34% are opposed and 10% are unsure. This reading, conducted before the COVID-19 pandemic that has tested Palestinian and Israeli cooperation in various ways, represents the first time in eight years that the majority of Americans have favored Palestinian statehood. source 

Make it go away, give the Arabs what they want so we can have peace, they say. When Biblically ignorant people ignore God’s word on the matter, they place themselves under judgment.

“I will also gather all nations, And bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat; And I will enter into judgment with them there On account of My people, My heritage Israel, Whom they have scattered among the nations; They have also divided up My land.Joel 3:2

How is it possible, with the entire Bible based on four Unconditional Covenants that God made with Abraham and his descendants ‘after him’ (Genesis 17:7-8), that Christians could believe God changed His mind?

1 – The Abrahamic Covenant: Unconditional or Patriarchal. (Gen. 12:1-3, 13:14-18, 15:1-21, 17:1-22).

  • To make Abraham a great nation, multiply his seed, and make him the father of many nations
  • To bless Abraham and make him great
  • To make Abraham a blessing to all the families of the earth
  • To bless those who bless him and curse those who curse him
  • To give Abraham and his seed all the land he could see, with specified, definite boundaries
  • To give a sign of covenant (circumcision)

2 -The Land, or Palestinian, Covenant:

An unconditional promise to Abraham and his descendants after him, eternal possession of the land (Genesis 15:18, 17:7-8; Deut. 30:1-10).

God commanded the Israelites to let the land rest every 7th year even promising a triple harvest on the 6th year. Israel disobeyed:

  • Israel will serve its enemy 70 years (Isaiah 39:6; Jer. 25:11; Dan. 1:1)
  • Israel taken captive by the king of Babylon 586 BC
  • Israel will be restored to the land (Isaiah 11:11; Ezek. 29:14)

3 – The Davidic Covenant: God reaffirms the Abrahamic covenant with David adding that the blessings (Messiah) would be attached to his lineage (2 Sam. 7:1-16, 23:1-5; Ps. 89:34-37).

  • To make David’s name great
  • To provide a permanent, undisturbed home for Israel
  • To establish an eternal kingdom for David and his lineage

(This covenant will be fulfilled by the millennial reign of Christ on earth)

4- The NEW Covenant: Unconditional, it replaced the conditional Mosaic Covenant which promised that God would make Israel His special possession and make them a holy people. The people failed to obey God and the New Covenant provided spiritual restoration

  • To put the law in their hearts and minds
  • To be their God and make them His people
  • To establish an eternal Kingdom with God and His people

(This is the covenant from which the name New Testament is derived)

Did God change His mind?

Paul, anticipating Satan’s relentless attack on God’s people, made it clear in Romans 9:3-5 to whom the covenants were given…

For I could wish that I myself were accursed from Christ for my brethren, my countrymen according to the flesh, who are Israelites, to whom pertain the adoption, the glory, the covenants, the giving of the law, the service of God, and the promises; of whom are the fathers and from whom, according to the flesh, Christ came, who is over all, the eternally blessed God. Amen.” Romans 9:3-5
