Last Monday, as Israel was making an arrest of a terrorist suspect in an Arab town north of Jerusalem, 1,500 people came out of nowhere and attacked the Israeli police. It was 5 am. Three Palestinians died in the riot.
The suspect was released a month ago as Israel’s gesture to prove they want peace. While the peace talks continue, the facts on the ground are contradictory. Why does Israel have to endure this charade? This year has seen an increase of West Bank terrorism and also right in Jerusalem.
In addition, one of the rioters killed was released in the 2011 Gilad Shalit deal when Israel traded 1,000 terrorist prisoners for one Israeli.
Finally, adding insult to injury, an Arab Minister of Knesset had the nerve to condemn Israel.
Mob Attack on Soldiers was ‘Legitimate Self-Defense’: Arab-Israeli MK says PA mob was right to attack soldiers: “The occupation soldiers commit war crimes.”
He is free citizen of Israel (one of 1.5 million) and an elected member of Israel’s Knesset (Parliament). How can Israel be such an open democracy and yet be excoriated by the world? How can they solve the peace problem? The answer is simple. Peace will only come from Yehovah, God of Israel. It will happen when the Messiah comes. In the meantime, Israel walks the tightrope of public opinion and her own security and very existence.
In that day Yehovah will defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem; the one who is feeble among them in that day shall be like David, and the house of David shall be like God, like the Angel of Yehovah before them. Zechariah 12:8
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!
