The Algemeiner “David Duke, a former Grand Wizard of the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan and Louisiana State Representative, joined with Press TV, a semi-official Iranian government news agency, in praising a report condemning Israel that was published by Presbytarian Church USA.
The church made headlines in 2012 for a proposal, that was ultimately voted down by its members, to divest from Caterpillar Inc., Hewlett-Packard Co. and Motorola because of their activities in Israel.
On his blog, the former KKK leader said,, “In a major breakthrough in the worldwide struggle against Zionist extremism, the largest Presbyterian church in the United States, the PC (USA), has issued a formal statement calling Zionism ‘Jewish Supremacism’ — a term first coined and made popular by Dr. David Duke.”
Opinion: Do you find this hard to believe? The Presbyterian USA website (http://www.pcusa.org/news/2014/1/21/presbyterian-network-opens-new-dialogue-zionism/) takes the plight of the Palestinians as a humanitarian crisis, while completely ignoring hundreds of prophecies about the promise God made to Abraham and his descendants after him (Genesis 17:7-8).
If I had only one verse with which to debate this subject, I would choose the divine fulfillment of Isaiah 66:7-8. The Jewish people returned to the promised land after 1,878 years of exile, precisely as prophesied.
“Who has heard such a thing? Who has seen such things? Shall the earth be made to give birth in one day? Or shall a nation be born at once? For as soon as Zion was in labor, She gave birth to her children.”
President Harry Truman and the rebirth of Israel:
“What I am trying to do is make the whole world safe for Jews,” Harry Truman wrote as he wrestled over the decision to recognize a Jewish state in Palestine. Deeply affected by the Holocaust, Truman sympathized with Jewish aspirations for a homeland. In November 1947 he lobbied for the U.N. resolution that divided Palestine into Jewish and Arab states. Britain announced it would hand authority over Palestine to the U.N. by May 14, 1948. Secretary of State George Marshall advised against recognition, warning Truman that Arab countries would cut off oil and unite to destroy the Jews. On the eve of British withdrawal — to be followed by an immediate Jewish declaration of independence—he told Truman “the great office of the President” was at stake.
But Truman’s mind was made up. At 4 p.m., David Ben-Gurion read a 979-word declaration of independence in front of a small audience at the Tel Aviv Art Museum. He finished, “The state of Israel is established! The meeting is ended.” At midnight, British rule over Palestine lapsed; 11 minutes later White House spokesman Charlie Ross announced U.S. recognition. “God put you in your mother’s womb,” the Chief Rabbi of Israel later told Truman, “so you would be the instrument to bring the rebirth of Israel.” With Truman’s decision, the hopes of the Jewish people were realized, but so too were Marshall’s fears. Arab opponents of the new nation immediately declared war, prompting a bloody struggle over Israel’s existence that would rage into the next century.
Prophecy fulfilled … perfectly.
