Would a tragedy like the Holocaust make retribution like South Africa’s apartheid okay?Posted by admin
I watched a video the other day, and I’m sure very few people will take the time to watch the documentary but I wonder if we all should watch it. I’m way too ignorant of history to even pretend to know if this is accurate or not. But if it is even slightly accurate, we should do or say something. I want to go and see this for myself. I want to stand up against injustice if this is happening. But it seems weird, 10 – 12 years ago it would not have entered my mind to ever consider standing up against Israel. But isn’t it just like God to show up on the other team? It happened to Paul, he thought he was fighting for God and then he discovered that he was fighting against Jesus.
I’m almost in tears right now, because this is so confusing to me. I want to see the truth of all this. I want to know what is really going on. I’ve prayed and prayed about Haiti, because I care about the people there, but God has never given me a real passion about going there for long term. But right now, I could imagine going to Palestine and just standing there as a witness. I hear that just having witnesses with cameras is actually saving the lives of Palestinians.
I’m told that this travesty is the best keep secret of our lifetime. Israel is killing, and imprisoning Palestinians and the world is looking the other way. What is the weapon that the Israelis use to force the world to look the other way – history. How does this work, guilt and the “unofficial” right to revenge. Did Palestinians carry out the Holocaust? No, but the world seems to have decided somehow to allow to allow Palestine to pay for that tragedy.
WARNING: I DON’T KNOW WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT AND I KNOW IT. I AM AS CONFUSED AS YOU THINK I AM. IF YOU CAN EXPLAIN ALL OF THIS TO ME, PLEASE DO. BUT IF THIS DOCUMENTARY IS EVEN 50% CORRECT, CHRISTIANS EVERYWHERE SHOULD BE STANDING UP FOR PALESTINE AND NON-VIOLENTLY INFLUENCING ISRAEL TO REPENT.
This isn’t for everyone, just like every issue isn’t mine to take on… but I hope there are a few people out there who will watch this documentary and advice me about it. I have some friends that I am sure will want to stone me for even posting this video. I have a few other friends who may be able to explain to me how this video is right or wrong. Either way, I want to know the truth. I’m a huge proponent of transparency. I’m being very transparent here…. I am asking for advice. Help me understand this….
Here’s the video (It is an hour and 15 minutes, sorry but it is worth it):
