Can You Bring Peace to the Middle East?
There are solutions!
“Crisis? What Crisis?” asks Gidon Ariel, the founder and moderator of the Facebook group, Jews Who Love Christians Who Love Jews (And The Christians Who Love Them), “As an Israeli born in the USA, I know the old-new adage, ‘Absence makes the heart grow frightened.’” He and his wife, Devra, are the founders and directors of the Holy City Prayer Society. “From far away, things seem much scarier than they are when you live here. For example, while the radio was broadcasting news about the latest threats from Iran and Gaza, I was busy going about my day: participating in a ceremony at Yad Vashem, the Israeli Center for Holocaust Commemoration, followed by volunteering at Zichron Menachem, an organization that supports child cancer victims and their families. Tonight I am going to rehearse for a choir performance on Yom Haatzma'ut, Israel Independence Day. Just a regular day, but maybe a hint to three things you as a Christian can do to help Israel and help bring peace to the Mideast and the whole world: 1) Educate: Both yourself and those near you. Learn about the Holocaust and the history of Zionism, including the tremendous ways Israel is helping the world. Those who do not know the truth aid those who want to fight the truth; 2) Love Thy Neighbor: Yes, following the Golden Rule, bringing more goodness into the world, leaves less room for evil; and 3) Thank God for His Fulfilled Promises: The establishment of the modern state of Israel is prophecy come true. (See Isaiah 66:8, as well as hundreds of other verses.)
