TERRORISM AND A NEW KNESSET

The new Parliament of Israel will be sworn in this week in an impressive ceremony. Out of the 120 seats in the Knesset (Israeli Parliament) 41 are new members. President Moshe Katsav will address them and warn them about plans to remove Jewish citizens from the Biblical heartlands of Judea and Samaria.

A place is provided in the ceremonies (though empty) to honor Prime Minister Ariel Sharon (incapcitated by a coma) in the proceedings. The decision to release him from his duties was made last week. Our prayers are still with him and his family during this most difficult time. The oldest member of the Knesset, Shimon Peres (83 years old), will stand in as an “Acting Prime Minister” for these formalities.

But, in spite of these dramatic and official events, the terrorism continues. A female suicide bomber blew herself up and killed several people and wounded many others at a “fast-food” stand in Tel Aviv. The nation was immediately put on a “full alert” as responsibility for the attack was claimed by Al Aqsa Martyes Brigade and Islamic Jihad. Israeli officials are concerned that further attacks will be attempted to ruin the official celebrations of installing a new Israeli Parliament this week.

Israel MUST stop their belief that it is possible to negotiate with its enemies who are committed to their annihilation and destruction. Israel MUST return in faith and repentance to the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Israel MUST stop giving away the land which God gave to the descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob by an “EVERLASTING COVENANT (Genesis 17:7-8; Psalm 105:8-11).” The failed peace processes are a continual reminder that peace will not come by violating God’s eternal and unconditional covenant! It is time for Israel (weary and discouraged with it all!) to say “ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!” It is time for Bible believers scattered throughout this world to stand up for Israel and to pray earnestly for them in these difficult times. The hope of the world remains the same as the Bible has taught – THE COMING OF THE PRINCE OF PEACE – THE MESSIAH OF ISRAEL!
