A University Professor defends the Jewish State of Israel from the false accusations and misconceptions being laid on them today

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: I also found it interesting David that this professor brought up myths and misconceptions about the situation in Israel that many in the United States and around the world actually seem to be accepting as facts.

DJ: He writes, “so I am well informed in Middle Eastern affairs and I’m shocked and disheartened by the student association vote. I’m not talking about ordinary criticism of Israel I’m speaking of a hatred that permits itself no boundaries in the lies and mends it pours out. Israel is repeatedly referred to as a Nazi state in what since is that true even as a metaphor? Where are the Israeli concentration camps, the SS, the Nuremberg laws, the final solution? None of these things nor anything remotely resembling them exists in Israel. Arabs in Israel can go anywhere they want. Israeli hospitals not only treat Jews and Arabs they also treat Palestinians from Gaza or the West Bank. The university is supposed to be about learning to use your brain, to think rationally, to examine evidence, to reach conclusions based on solid evidence. If the best Edinburgh can produce our students who have no idea how to do any of those things then the future is bleak.”

JD: And no matter what the world thinks the fact is that the Jewish people have a right to the land that they’re in. And God has clearly warned about the danger of standing against his chosen people.

DJ: In Genesis we read that God made an eternal unconditional covenant with Abraham and he put that covenant, the Abrahamic Covenant, into place in 5 stages. Then God confirmed that covenant with Isaac in chapter 26 of Genesis and then with Jacob in chapter 28. And of course Jacob’s name was changed to Israel and he had 12 sons who became the fathers of the 12 tribes of Israel.

 God promised Abraham that his descendants through Isaac and Jacob would inherit that piece of real estate from the Nile River to the Euphrates River a huge area that is much bigger than Israel today. He confirmed the descendant aspect with David in II Samuel chapter 7 establishing David’s throne. And then we find the confirmation of the blessing part in the new covenant in Jeremiah 31. The descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob still are recipients of that promise and it’s not going to end well for those who set themselves against Israel.

JD: David James with his report on the professor’s defense for Israel and what the Bible has to say on the BDS activities against the Jewish state.

We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

David’s report on this British professor’s defense of the Jewish state of Israel was very thought provoking. Something’s you must really stop and think about. But at the same time do not forget that the Bible reveals God’s plan for his chosen people, the Jewish people, and that plan will be fulfilled.

The Palestinian Authority takes a strong stand against homosexuality

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: The headline read this, Palestinian Authority chasing down homosexuals. Now first of all remind everybody just briefly who the PA is, the Palestinian Authority, and talk to me about this headline will you please?

IM: The Palestinian Authority is the governing body of the Palestinian people in Judea and Samaria and they are the official representatives of the Palestinians around the world. They announced last week the chief of police that they had received word that a group of Palestinians who were homosexuals-gays and they wanted to have some kind of gathering together. The police heard about it and they made a public announcement. They asked on Palestinians to inform them about any person that’s connected to this organization called Rainbow is considered a violation of the highest ideals and values of Palestinian society. They promised that they would track them down arrest them and prosecute them just for having an event where gay people could get together.

So it’s a Palestinian Authority registered in Israel planning an event in the Palestinian Authority areas that the police got word of it. And now they’re asking on Palestinians to notify them and inform on their friends, their neighbors whoever might be involved in this organization because they want to prosecute them.

JD: Is this based upon the Islamic law and the Quran and Islamic beliefs or is this just a Palestinian thing? 

IM: No this is something that is much broader in the Islamic world. In some countries it’s a capital crime. It seems to be something the openness in the West and the willingness to be accepting of different lifestyles has not yet penetrated into much of the Islamic world.

JD: Itamar Marcus with the details behind the strong stand against homosexuality by the Palestinian Authority.

We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

The Palestinian Authority states that homosexuality goes against all the norms of society and that the Islamic holy book the Quran does not allow for the LGBT lifestyle to be a part of the Palestinian lifestyle today. The Palestinian people are wrong on many issues but on homosexuality they seem to be very Biblical in their thinking. That statement is based upon God’s actions in Genesis 19 the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah for sodomy and also Romans 1 what the Lord has to say about the homosexual lifestyle.

In Luke 17:28-30 and Matthew 24:37 the Lord compares the homosexual lifestyle to the days when Jesus Christ will return to the earth. I believe we are living in those days.
