Gatestone Institute: If greeting a Jew on his or her holiday, cleaning the beach with an Israeli, or working in Israel are considered by many Arabs a “crime,” what will be the fate of any Arab who makes peace with Israel?
- Those who are calling for boycotts of Israel — and are threatening and inciting their people against any Arab who dares to host a Jew or send him or her greetings — are also emphatically opposed to peace with Israel. For them, making peace with the “Zionist entity” is considered an act of treason.
- They are worried that an Arab who greets a Jew may one day make peace with Israel. They are worried that an Arab state that hosts Israeli athletes may one day make peace with Israel. They are worried that Arabs who go to work in Israel may fall in love with Israelis and stop thinking of ways to kill them or destroy Israel. more …
Opinion: “You shall not abhor an Edomite, for he is your brother. You shall not abhor an Egyptian, because you were an alien in his land.” Deuteronomy 23:7
Have you noticed that the vitriol between Jacob and Esau is one-sided? A senseless murder of a Jew takes place, the Arabs celebrate passing out candy, while the Jew quietly buries the dead, and quietly destroys the Arab’s home.
The Arab calls the Jew sub-human, the Jew tries to find peace. The Arab fires rockets and the UN remains quiet. The Jew retaliates and the UN condemns. Rinse, repeat.
“If the Arabs put down their weapons today, there would be no more violence. If the Jews put down their weapons today, there would be no more Israel” Benjamin Netanyahu.
The conflict between half-brothers (mixed marriage (Jew/Gentile) was expressly forbidden but constantly violated.
- Ex. 34:12-16
- Deut. 7:3
- Josh 23:12
The result of those unlawful marriages was enmity for the Jewish blood and favor for the Gentile blood.
Excerpt : Antichrist: The Search for Amalek: The Babylonian Captivity Ends
“In 458 BC, Ezra led a group of 1,800 men (5,500 to 6,000 including women and children) back to Jerusalem.
Twelve years after Ezra’s return to the Holy Land, a third group returned from Persia with Nehemiah. He had received permission from King Artaxerxes in 445 BC (beginning the seventy weeks’ prophecy of Daniel 9:24–27) to return to Jerusalem and rebuild the walls. There were 42,360 souls (or 125,000–130,000 total) in the city at that time, and they rebuilt the walls in fifty-two days (Neh. 7:66–73).
The Returning Jews Intermarry
In Deuteronomy 7:1-4 Moses warned the Jews when they came into the Promised Land to “conquer and utterly destroy the Hittites and the Girgashites and the Amorites and the Canaanites and the Perizzites and the Hivites and the Jebusites.
“You shall make no treaty with them, and show them no mercy. Do not intermarry with them. Do not give your daughters to their sons or take their daughters for your sons, for they will turn your children away from following me to serve other gods, and the Lord’s anger will burn against you and will quickly destroy you.”
But that is not what happened. Ezra 9 records that the returning Jews indeed married the Canaanites, the same tribe that was recorded in Genesis 36:2 “Esau took his wives from the women of Canaan.” And they married the Hittites, Perizzites, Jebusites, Ammonites, Moabites, Egyptians and Amorites.
Ezra, distraught for this violation of God’s commands, prayed to the God of Israel and made a covenant to send the pagan wives and children away. However, the bloodline of Esau was already in the children of these unlawful marriages and spread throughout Judea. God meant for the Jews to be a separate and holy people chosen from all the peoples on the face of the earth to be His people, His treasured possession.”
Is there a doubt that the final Amalek will come from the same mixed bloodline? Not for me.
