Old, but MUST SEE clip about US support to Israel

Keep in mind as you view this clip that NO GOVERNMENT (especially the US government) manufacturers and sells anything for profit. Our government doesn’t produce, grow, or do any service for which it should generate a profit. With that in mind, every dollar – LISTEN CLOSELY EVERY DOLLAR – the US gives away… it must either steal, borrow, or print in order to give that dollar away. Understand today, before you and I are forced to understand in the future that the Federal Reserve Bank (the FRB prints money) is printing money causing our money to have less value. Secondly, understand that ever tax the IRS (the IRS steals money) steals is another shot at destroying the free market system. Finally, dollars BORROWED have to be repaid with interest but more importantly dollars that are borrowed for any reason except investment (higher rate of return than dollar spent) is throwing money away and asking others to help because you can’t throw it away fast enough.

But worse than everything I’ve just mentioned is the FACT that the support level we’ve been giving Israel IS NOT HELPFUL TO ISRAEL. Paying the car payment and rent for a capable 30 year old son or daughter isn’t help and support, it is enablement and verging on child abuse. Israel is hurt by the US help, not helped.

Now, I know that the video clip you’ve just watched is old. I don’t have more up to date numbers, but there are more recent documentaries about the relationship between Israel and the US. If you are a Christian who is up in arms about the US and the possible change in relationship to Israel and you haven’t at least put in 5 hours to study this situation in MODERN TIMES – then you are being quite foolish. I know what the Old Testament says about supporting Israel, but you really need to read the entire bible and make a wise decision on this subject. I’ve been told that I’m making this too complicated by a couple of people lately. The idea that I am making this too complicated is silly, ignorant, and lazy. Understanding what is going on in our world sometimes takes studying the hard boring stuff. I’m telling you, read just a little bit, watch a documentary now and then. Ask God to help you really understand what’s going on. I’m praying now about how to get myself to Israel as soon as possible to see what is going on there. I just printed out my application to spend March 5 – 18th, 2013 there in Israel with a Christian Peacekeeping Team… I’m not sure yet if that process will work out, if I could raise the funds, or even if I’d be accepted as a potential team member. Either way, I’ve printed my application and I’m going to start praying that direction today.

I just edited this to add… this is not support for Obama as President. I think he is a decent guy and I think his foreign policy has been better than his opponent’s might be, but I’m still voting against both Romney and Obama for President. I prefer a candidate who help make a real change happen, like ending the Federal Reserve Bank, turning back the IRS, stopping the wasteful and dangerous war on drugs, and bringing home troops from 150+ countries.

A Palestinian Christian Perspective

I share in the promises made to Abraham’s offspring because I am grafted into Christ!

Here’s another step in my research about Zionism and Palestinian Christians…

Would a tragedy like the Holocaust make retribution like South Africa’s apartheid okay?

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):
