Among the many injunctions that the Almighty gave to Israel, His chosen people, a real standout is Numbers 23:9: “The people shall dwell alone and shall not be reckoned among the nations.” One version actually says, “it does not consider itself among the nations.”
So, who thought it was a great idea for Israel to be represented, along with other nations, in the United Nations’ annual climate change conference, COP27, held this month in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt?
“I will purge the rebels from among you, and those who transgress against Me; I will bring them out of the country where they dwell, but they shall not enter the land of Israel. Then you will know that I am the Lord.” Ezekiel 30:28
Gathered from every corner of the world, the nations came to pay homage to the earth and covenanted to honor her with compassion and respect. They say that no commitment is too great and no price too high – not mankind’s comfort, conveniences or even necessity when it comes to extending lavish attention and deference to the planet’s needs. We are now instructed to bow down, serve and worship creation, absent the Creator.
Who would have thought that Israel would join this chorus? Yet there we were, linking arms with the nations as they genuflected to their new deity. It was to this backdrop that Israel’s President Isaac Herzog, in his opening address on Monday, promised Israel’s net zero carbon emissions by 2050, despite his inability to make such a guarantee, given that Israel’s attorney general prevented the passage of such a bill.
Perhaps the most curious part of Herzog’s speech was his choice to invoke the Quran which “teaches us to be good to others as Allah has been good to us, and to not seek to corrupt the land.”
The name “Allah” was actually the name of a pagan lunar deity.
