Hey, hey what are we fighting for?

My attempt to page through a lot of stuff and give some "quick" reading material for those who are following the current crisis in Israel.  Food for the thoughtful person, who wants to dig deeper.

Implying/arguing/suggesting that the relative ineffectiveness of Hamas at killing people with their rockets somehow absolves them of their intention to is pure propaganda. The relative failure of the jihadis to kill civilians and the IDF's relative success at killing the jihadis who are trying does not equates to the moral superiority of the jihadis. It means one is thoughtful and effective at eliminating murderers (the obligation of every nation state) and the other is indiscriminate and relatively ineffective in their jihad. From where are these jihadis waging their religious war? Behind human shields in civilian centers in territory Israel withdrew every Jew from in a 'land for peace' deal back in 2005. There's a lot of Kool Aid out there. Don't drink it.” Dalton Thomas

BOMBS AWAY! - by David Wilder
There are different kinds of bombs.
Presently we are experiencing bombs falling on Israel, launched by a terrorist government whose goal is the demise of the State of Israel and the annihilation of all its Jewish citizens.
Simultaneously Israel is returning the favor, not in an effort to kill all Gazan Arabs, rather to exterminate the animals who are causing 'Red Alert' to be sounded, not only in Sderot, Ashkelon and Ashdod, but also in Beit Shemesh, Jerusalem, Haifa, Caesarea, Tel Aviv, Nes Tziona, Rishon L'Tzion, and many other places, and yes, including even Hebron. (The unconfirmed rumors are that the missile aimed at us fell in the Arab village Daharia, in the Southern Hebron Hills, killing three Arabs.)
Last night one of my granddaughters, who lives in Beit Haggai, in the southern Hebron Hills, where too there was a siren yesterday, called me. Her father (my son) was called up a few days ago in the emergency draft. In tears she whispered, "Saba, I'm afraid."
There are major differences between our bombs and their bombs. They are aiming for Ben Gurion airport. Their primary targets are civilians. Apartment buildings. Factories. Shopping centers. Wherever. The more dead, the better. After all, that's the goal.
Before Israel releases its bombs, the intended 'house' is notified. Not once, rather twice. "Get out, we are going to bomb this house." The people inside have, not 15 seconds, but five minutes to evacuate. Then a 'warning flare' is released. "We are serious about this." And only after both these warnings, is the building destroyed.
Of course, these are not random dwellings. These are the home bases of the beasts trying to destroy Israel. If the people inside take the alerts seriously, they are not injured. But lately, the Hamas terror leadership in Gaza has told its citizens to 'ignore' the Israeli forewarning. Not only don't they care if their own civilians are killed. To the contrary, they prefer it. That way they have good photos to show the international media and at the UN.

Two articles that provide more “food for thought.”

And lastly thiese comments which give a very long term Biblical understanding of the ultimate plan of God. The stated goal of God is to bring people to the end of their strength, true for us when we are born again as individuals, and true for Israel when the nation is born again. Deut. 32:19-36, Daniel 12:7. 

Eric N Kate Glas        Try (as we should) to prevent the tide of public opinion from turning against Israel, and to be unofficial ambassadors for the Holy Land, and grieve for the people who believe the lies of the Hamas propaganda machine, we must also remember that this too is a part of Gods plan, and that each day we see is another moment closer to the fulfillment of this plan and a day closer to the revealing of both Him as Lord of all, and the revealing of us as His children. 1 Cor 15

Dalton Thomas  Israel is either a cultivated tree that Gentiles were grafted into or a now-shattered, discarded shell that hatched Messiah and the true Israel. Those who embrace the former metaphor believe in the vindication of prophecy, the latter in the revision of it."
Mark Klafter's response       "Very good statement. The vindication of prophecy leads to a firm grip on reality, an appreciation of God's kingship along with His order and design for history. The revision of prophecy concerning Israel leads to illusion and fantasy, and an affirmation of Satan's wisdom of one upmanship, pride, arrogance and usurpation."

As a P.S. A very good Bible study, that I could start on facebook or wherever will involve an understanding of the “holy covenant.” It is spoken of in this section of Daniel that gives great detail about the career of the anti-Christ. (Daniel 11:28-30) 28 Then shall he return into his land with great riches; and his heart shall be against the holy covenant; and he shall do exploits, and return to his own land.
29 At the time appointed he shall return, and come toward the south; but it shall not be as the former, or as the latter.
30 For the ships of Chittim shall come against him: therefore he shall be grieved, and return, and have indignation against the holy covenant: so shall he do; he shall even return, and have intelligence with them that forsake the holy covenant.
It is very important to have an understanding of this term is one is going to “rightly discern” the times that we are in.
