Prayer, Plain and Simple

By any Name it’s Still Anti-Semitism

Helen Thomas has “gotten the hell out of Washington” after telling Jews to “get the hell out of Israel.” The now former 89-year old “dean” of the White House press corps has been forced into retirement by Hearst Media after saying that Jews should return “home” to Poland and Germany and to give the land named “Israel” back to the Palestinians. Thomas later apologized for her verbal dysentery. But as we know,… “from the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks.” Helen, it’s clear what’s in your heart…

Yes, yes, God cares about the Palestinian people. He promises to provide for anyone no matter their culture or race or nationality, anyone who turns to him for help. That said, the land north of the River, west of the Desert, and east of the Sea rightly called Israel (not Palestine) was given by God to the Jewish people. It is a decree thousands of years old. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Osama bin Laden and Helen Thomas may want it otherwise, but the fact remains: that land belongs to the children of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. End of story!


What’s troubling today – I smelled it in the news cycles all week – is the blatant reassertion of what can only be called anti-Semitism. That’s right! Let’s name it what it is, and as we do remember well that we’ve been here before. The world press, the United Nations, the European Union, the Arab States, Asia, and most of the developing world are blasting and isolating tiny Israel. Even the United State (God have mercy upon us) is shunning this nation, our only true friend in the region mind you!

The matter is weird and haunting and eerie, like something out the back pages of the New Testament (Reader be wise!)  The mood is more than political shuffling, more than economic posturing for oil or military positioning, or a clamoring for import and export access. What’s astir is an irrational, subliminal “spiritual” reality up the dark side of hell itself. “  There are only around 12 million Jews in the whole world! Why are they so hated? Don’t believe in God? Try explaining a rational reason the world’s hatred of the Jewish people. When you fail at least admit you believe in the Devil. For just as God carries a special love for his people, the Jews, so the enemy of God, Satan holds a special hatred for these, the “apple of his eye.”  Before we go too far, again… Let’s pause, repent, and cooperate with God in this matter…


“God, forgive us for neglecting, resisting, even opposing your purposes in history, particularly with and for your Jewish people. God, where we have cursed them restore a blessing. In the wake of this current assault of opinion against them, revive them with hope and faith that knows and rests in the fact that you alone are their protection and strength. Though the whole world rejects them, you will not! Bless Israel and the Jewish people today, again, and finally. And in your time reveal to them their Messiah, the One Anointed to bring the Kingdom… In the Name of that Anointed One, may he come… Again!”
