‘Gaza Gang” guaranteeing God’s grace upon Israel
By Richard Corbeil - The Apopka Chief – Founded in 1923
JULY 25 – According to Fox News, the Dems’ fund raiser in New York this past week, with our fund- raiser-in-chief, cost the U.S. taxpayers $6 million for his travel, security, city area shutdowns for his motorcade, etc., while raising a paltry $1 million for the Dems. From the liberal standpoint, based on the Pelosi-Reid moron meter, it worked out perfectly.
Between his 398 fundraisers and record setting presidential rounds of golf, we have receded into Cold War II with the Putin regime and encouraged Hamas, classified by the U.S. as a terrorist organization, to wage missile war on our faithful ally, Israel.
In addition, our European allies now regard us as a second-class power and our president as a not-to-be-trusted incompetent.
Meanwhile, I caught an interview of Bill Clinton on Fox, intimating that it was Israel’s responsibility to stop the fighting in Gaza.
Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu certainly had Clinton and the U.N. in mind when he stated, “We use missiles to protect our children, while Hamas uses children to protect their missiles.” Has Israel got the right P.M., or what?
What is strange about this war is the lack of noise and threats from any Mideast Muslim nations. In fact, Egypt has been trying to broker a ceasefire and peace treaty between the two adversaries. But, Hamas wants to keep on launching.
Personally, I feel the silence from the other Muslim countries and fanatical groups is based on the ISIS move to take over Iraq, with all of them waiting for that result, following which will come their final move against God’s people.
Strangely, this is all taking place with one of the most fateful days of Israel’s history approaching. That is, of course, the 9th of Av, Tisha b’Av in the Jewish calendar, falling on August 4 this year.
For 3,227 years, the 9th of Av has been a day of tragedy and sorrow for the Jewish nation, as God became angry at acts of disobedience. The odds of these numerous occurrences taking place on the same date century after century are really infinitely impossible.
The first occurred in 1313 B.C. during the Exodus from Egypt when Moses was leading them, and they refused to enter the Holy Land because of the report of giants being there. This refusal and distrust on the 9th of Av angered God and consequently, this adult generation of Israelites never entered the Promised Land, wandering the desert for 38 years with the children surviving, maturing and eventually entering,
On the 9th of Av in 432 B.C., the First Temple was destroyed. Five centuries later, on the 9th of Av in 69 A.D., the Romans destroyed the Second Temple .
Sixty-four years later, in 133 A.D., the Jews, with Simon Bar Kochba as their leader, rebelled against Rome and thousands were butchered at Betar on the 9th of Av.
All Jews were expelled from England in 1290 A.D. beginning on Tisha b’Av.
In Spain, Queen Isabella and husband Ferdinand signed an edict of expulsion on March 31, 1492, giving them exactly four months to leave the country. The 9th of Av was that final date for all Jews to be out of Spain.
And then, the most horrifying of all, with World War II and the Holocaust that slaughtered 6 million Jewish men, women and children. World War II was actually the long, drawn out conclusion of World War I that began in 1914. On the 9th of Av, 1914, Germany declared war on Russia and the future Holocaust was set in motion.
I firmly believe that God no longer possesses any anger for his chosen people and that the coming 9th of Av will mark a new day for Israel since their rebirth May 14, 1948.
On that day, the Arab League of nations attacked the newborn Israel and waged war for over a year. And, thus it has been ever since, for 66 years, with terrorism and wars unabated, but completely unsuccessful by hundreds of millions against a tiny land of a few million chosen people. You would think the Muslims would get it by now.
Despite this atmosphere of hatred and constant criticism by the Muslim controlled United Nations, Israel has blessed the world with scientific, medicinal, mechanical and agricultural wonders, saving and improving millions of lives worldwide, and being awarded dozens of Nobel Prizes.
Even our top military leaders have named Israel as “Our Supercarrier in the Mediterranean”, and their technological contributions to our military have been priceless.
Despite the hatred and ongoing attacks from Muslim nations, Israel has established field hospitals on the Syrian Border to treat casualties of the ongoing Syrian internal conflict with their thousands of casualties Consider that there has been over 150,000 killed in their internal war in two years, many of them children and women, and countless wounded.
In Israel, over 1 million Muslims are full Israeli citizens and residents, with some holding office in the governmental Knesset.
I believe on this 9th day of Av, the LORD will change from bringing catastrophe on His people, to a great blessing for their service and love of their fellow man and woman.
Whatever happens, Israel should not stop until the last tunnel is smashed, the last missile is destroyed, and the last Hamas terrorist is killed or imprisoned.
Jesus said, “For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.” Matthew 24:7 and 8.
Columnist note: Quote from New York Times 2010 Almanac: “ In June 2007, Hamas wrested control of the Gaza from Fatah in a bloody battle that killed more than 100.” Legal Government of Gaza??!
