Lesson to be Learned from Israel's War for Independence, Recent Past and Present

We have no true ally, other than  G-d Almighty!!!

This isn't a pleasant thought for most Israelis. But, in all honesty, the truth isn't always pleasant.

I'm no expert on Ancient History, nor the history of what happened over a hundred years ago. I have a pretty good knowledge and recollection of what has happened to the Jewish People during my life and the decade plus before I was born.

The history that is embedded in my mind and soul starts with the very first signs of the Modern Zionist Movement and the Holocaust. Separate Jewish Nationalism aka Zionism was a reaction to the antisemitism in Europe. Europe at the time was very strictly Christian, meaning Catholic and Protestant which has one guiding principle-- the Jews killed their god. On that they are united. In recent years, to be PC (politically correct) there have been some theological changes by some sects, but if you look at the very basis of Christianity its aim is to replace Judaism. It adopted our Bible and added more material which totally contradicts the Jewish Religion.

They claim to follow the Ten Commandments but that's an out and out lie. The very first Commandments (Exodus Chapter 20) are:
ב  אָנֹכִי יְהוָה אֱלֹהֶיךָ, אֲשֶׁר הוֹצֵאתִיךָ מֵאֶרֶץ מִצְרַיִם מִבֵּית עֲבָדִים:  לֹא-יִהְיֶה לְךָ אֱלֹהִים אֲחֵרִים, עַל-פָּנָי.
2 I am the LORD thy God, who brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt have no other gods before Me.

ג  לֹא-תַעֲשֶׂה לְךָ פֶסֶל, וְכָל-תְּמוּנָה, אֲשֶׁר בַּשָּׁמַיִם מִמַּעַל, וַאֲשֶׁר בָּאָרֶץ מִתָּחַת--וַאֲשֶׁר בַּמַּיִם, מִתַּחַת לָאָרֶץ.
3 Thou shalt not make unto thee a graven image, nor any manner of likeness, of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth;

ד  לֹא-תִשְׁתַּחֲוֶה לָהֶם, וְלֹא תָעָבְדֵם:  כִּי אָנֹכִי יְהוָה אֱלֹהֶיךָ, אֵל קַנָּא--פֹּקֵד עֲו‍ֹן אָבֹת עַל-בָּנִים עַל-שִׁלֵּשִׁים וְעַל-רִבֵּעִים, לְשֹׂנְאָי.
4 thou shalt not bow down unto them, nor serve them; for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate Me;...
ז  זָכוֹר אֶת-יוֹם הַשַּׁבָּת, לְקַדְּשׁוֹ.7 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.
ח  שֵׁשֶׁת יָמִים תַּעֲבֹד, וְעָשִׂיתָ כָּל-מְלַאכְתֶּךָ.8 Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work;
ט  וְיוֹם, הַשְּׁבִיעִי--שַׁבָּת, לַיהוָה אֱלֹהֶיךָ:  לֹא-תַעֲשֶׂה כָל-מְלָאכָה אַתָּה וּבִנְךָ וּבִתֶּךָ, עַבְדְּךָ וַאֲמָתְךָ וּבְהֶמְתֶּךָ, וְגֵרְךָ, אֲשֶׁר בִּשְׁעָרֶיךָ.9 but the seventh day is a sabbath unto the LORD thy God, in it thou shalt not do any manner of work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, nor thy man-servant, nor thy maid-servant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates;
י  כִּי שֵׁשֶׁת-יָמִים עָשָׂה יְהוָה אֶת-הַשָּׁמַיִם וְאֶת-הָאָרֶץ, אֶת-הַיָּם וְאֶת-כָּל-אֲשֶׁר-בָּם, וַיָּנַח, בַּיּוֹם הַשְּׁבִיעִי; עַל-כֵּן, בֵּרַךְ יְהוָה אֶת-יוֹם הַשַּׁבָּת--וַיְקַדְּשֵׁהוּ.  {ס}10 for in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested on the seventh day; wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.{S}
So how can the Christians worship a man? And how can they call the first day of the week, Sunday their Sabbath? Three out of the Ten Commandments are about these two simple and basic points, principles.
1. Belief in G-dThis category is derived from the declaration in Ex. 20:2 beginning, "I am the L-rd, your G-d..."
2. Prohibition of Improper WorshipThis category is derived from Ex. 20:3-6, beginning, "You shall not have other gods..." It encompasses within it the prohibition against the worship of other gods as well as the prohibition of improper forms of worship of the one true G-d, such as worshiping G-d through an idol.
4. Observance of Sacred TimesThis category is derived from Ex. 20:8-11, beginning, "Remember the Sabbath day..." It encompasses all mitzvot related to Shabbat, holidays, or other sacred time. (Judaism 101)
And they are expounded on to make sure we understand what G-d is commanding us.

The survival of the Jewish People, especially since we had been exiled and persecuted by killings and the banning of the practice of Judaism is a totally incomprehensible fact and proof that G-d cares for us and wants us to be here, not any other religion or people.

Experts were certain of our end and didn't care during the Holocaust, ditto for the Israeli War of Independence, the 1967 Six Days War and the 1973 Yom Kippur War.

It is time for the Israeli public and politicians to stop trying to get support of others. They won't save us!!

עם ישראל חי!!
Am Yisrael Chai!The People of Israel (Jews) Live and Thrive!

To be fair, Judaism has never claimed to be fide sola - the sole faith or the only path to the truth.

Reading the Prophets reveals that even in the time of the Messiah, there will be still be nations and different religions. The only thing that will change is the entire world will acknowledge Israel's G-d is the G-d of the entire world.

Israel has to teach the world to accept this truth not to follow the ways of the world. That's the way it should be.

Amen. exactly

At a 1937 [CE] lecture to the British Foreign Ministry, the King of Saudi Arabia said:
“Verily, the word of Allah teaches us, and we implicitly believe this…
for a Muslim to kill a Jew…
ensures him immediate entry into Heaven…”
SOURCE: The Holocaust’s Most Vicious Killers by Edwin Black,
The Jewish Press, 2011/1/21, pages 1 and 91.
PERSONAL COMMENT: Notice that those words were spoken BEFORE year 1967 CE and BEFORE year 1948 CE.

Yes, they don't hid their evil.

Sorry, Norman: Not so, in the Messianic times, there will be other nations, of course, but there will not be any other religions, other than Judaism (not really a religion, but the Eternal Truth)and the other nations will live according to the Seven Laws of Noach. The new world (Olam Habah) will not be like this Olam Hazeh. That is why when we pray Aleinu, we declare that the whole world will take upon themselves the belief and knowledge of the One True G-D!

a, sources, please

Sources are as basic as the Aleinu prayer which we pray each day. Please read it. We also end off the Shabbat prayers with it and it tells you like it is. Besides which, this is an understood by all Orthodox Jewish factions that the rest of the world will be the Bnai Noach, i.e., living according to the 7 Laws of Noach. The belief in only H' is the reason for creation. 'The knowledge of H' will fill the whole earth as the waters cover the seabeds'!
