Gaza Riots Exposed
It's been an amazing few weeks here in Israel: the 70th anniversary of the birth of the nation, the official opening of the US Embassy in Jerusalem, our Tikkun Roundtable conference (more on that next week), and the annual Shavuot (Pentecost) prayer meeting. Sadly, at the same time, there was much bloodshed on our border with Gaza, as Hamas led a suicidal effort to try and breach the border with Israel. As always, the world media brushes aside history, forgets the reasons why we are in this mess, and makes Israel to be the bad guy.
Thankfully, the truth has come out about the Gaza riots and bloodshed. Hamas official, Salah Bardawil finally admitted that 50 of the 60 killed on Monday were Hamas activists. In addition, 3 Islamic Jihad activists were killed. Israel had said that at least 24 of the fatalities belonged to militant groups, but international media did not believe them. Does anyone still think these 53 militants were peaceful protesters just out for a stroll along the border fence?
Here are a few facts pointing that Hamas is responsible for all the deaths, sending scores of young men on what is essentially a suicide mission for media purposes.
So how should Believers respond? We must constantly expose the lies of militant Islam, in its satanic hatred of Israel, the West and Christians. We don't want to demonize anyone—but want to pray for all those under the deception of Islam to be set free, and come into the revelation of the Son of God, Yeshua. At our Shavuot prayer event, we experienced a powerful time of this kind of intercession, led by local Arab Christians and Messianic believers. We believe unity in Christ along the "Isaiah 19" highway (Egypt/Israel/Assyria) releases an anointing for the kind of prayer that can break the hold of this wicked principality (Islam) over the minds of millions. Please keep praying with us!!
