FPM: Late last month, the Irish Parliament was prepared to pass a piece of legislation that would have made it a crime for anyone engaging in trade with Israel.  The bill, which aimed to compliment and support the BDS movement (Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions), would have sent to jail Irish citizens who bought souvenirs in Jerusalem or Judea and Samaria, or penalized them with a fine of $310,000. ”

When officials in the Trump administration learned of the impending bill in the Irish Parliament, the U.S. State Department was directed to open up official channels to the Irish leaders in a bid to scuttle the bill and avoid a standoff with the Irish government over the proposed bill.

The Trump administration officials made it clear to the Irish leaders that passage of the bill would put them at odds with the U.S., and subject them to inclusion on a list of countries supporting boycotts against the State of Israel. more …

Opinion: But Ireland is 78% Christian, so what is going on?

Northern Ireland claims to be 48% Protestant. The Presbyterian Church in Ireland (PCI), however has a similar attitude to that of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA): They are both fiercely anti-Israel and pro-Palestinian.

Northern Ireland also claims to be 45% Catholic while the Methodist church and World Council of Churches make a small percentage.

If you have been coming to this site and have read chapter 3 of “Bible Prophecy 101” titled ‘Doctrines that Divide Christians’ (here) you will see the problem when it comes to Christians and anti-Semitism.

All the above churches adhere to replacement theology: that the church replaced Israel in God’s plan and that the Jews are no longer God’s chosen people, and God does not have specific future plans for the nation of Israel.

When you consider that possibly 90% of Christian denominations and all Islamic Mosques preach one form of anti-Semitism or another, the number equals almost half the population of the world.

  1. Ireland is 78% Christian? Was there are massive revival overnight that I had missed? Just yesterday, I had read that Ireland is 88% Catholic. Catholic is not Christian, despite what the Pope says. The Bible says otherwise.

    As far as Ireland’s stance on Israel, I am not at all surprised at that news. Although I am of complete European descent, I have become completely embarrassed of my cultural heritage. The Netherlands, Ireland, England, and Denmark have really showed their true colours, especially in recent years. And their main colour is yellow. Yellow, as in the colour of cowards. Cowards who cannot stand up to their own governments, cowards who cannot stand up to the UN and the EU and other ridiculous bodies of government.

    Yet, in a way, I do welcome and accept this type of news for the simple fact that it is Bible prophecy unfolding before our very eyes once again. And I am excited about seeing and experiencing any and all Bible prophecy in today’s society.
