The Israeli government has recently claimed that it can “legislate anywhere in the world”, that it is “entitled to violate the sovereignty of foreign countries”, and that “is allowed to ignore the directives of international law in any field it desires”. This was written in an official response letter to the Supreme Court last month. (source)
Caveat: I reject the notion of “international law.” That is a fiction long used by bigger nations to bully the smaller. The issue here is the unconscionable arrogance of Israeli government. We knew this already, of course. Israel has often stated that only Jews are human; all Gentiles are animals. This is written in their Talmud, and they have acted accordingly since before they decided to move back to Israel.
And with this we must review our understanding: The Talmud is contrary to the Law of Moses. Jesus flatly stated that (Matthew 15:1-20, among other passages). The only way Jews can have a valid claim to any of the blessings promised in the Bible is to obey the actual Covenant of Moses as Jesus taught it. Were they faithful to the Covenant, their audacious claims would be more reasonable. The current claim that Israel is a Jewish nation inheriting the Old Testament favor of God is a flat out lie.
But it’s not necessary for us to take any kind of activist approach to this. All we need to do is assert the obvious from God’s Word. This is one of those things that registers in your convictions as manifestly true; your heart knows it, regardless whether your mind is ready to embrace it. The only good we can do is therefore approach the issue heart-led: Allow God to drive the truth home in His own way, His own time. Just walk in it.
Given that this is God’s own truth, we know that sooner or later reality itself will enforce this truth. It will hardly be in the time and manner that makes sense to our minds, but this is how God works. He is permitting Israel to act as a goad, a scourge to punish mankind for rejecting His revelation. This is the left hand of God, a mission He passed to Satan a long time ago. Israel is Satan’s project to provoke and infuriate the world and drive people mad. The whole point is to make people act stupid and fall under God’s wrath. That’s Satan’s job and Israel is one of his very best tools. It’s a tar-baby.
Thus, our point is to explain why people should ignore Israel. Not in the sense that you would wade through a mosquito and crocodile infested swamp, but that you recognize it for the swamp it is and avoid messing with it. In due time, events will coalesce to destroy this nasty little country. But when the Jews rejected their Messiah, yet refused to disband when their own reason for existing was gone, they became the nation of Satan. The Talmud is a covenant from Hell.
We should still treat Jews the same as anyone else in the sense of pouring out our heart-led compassion and divine mercy on them. But we should recognize their special status as more damned than the rest of humanity. It takes an extra dose of mercy to get to them, because they are deeper in the wrath of God.
As for modern Israel: Just wait it out. This thing cannot avoid failure, because it is flatly contrary to everything in God’s divine character, which is woven into all Creation.
