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:
1. Belief in G-dThis category is derived from the declaration in Ex. 20:2 beginning, "I am the L-rd, your G-d..."And they are expounded on to make sure we understand what G-d is commanding us.
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)
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!
