“And Many Will Join Them in Hypocrisy”

“And many will join them in hypocrisy.”(Daniel 11:34 KJV)

        I have just watched the video from Israel Unwired Online produced by Avi Abelow. The headline read “Arab Israeli Rep wants to destroy the Jewish State.” The video showed an interview with MK Heba Yazbak of the Balad faction of the Joint Arab list Party in the Knesset. Her anti-Israel rhetoric clearly showed where the Joint Arab List Party really stands concerning Israel. It stirred me up when I heard what she was saying.

        Quite frankly Benny Gantz has mollycoddled the Joint Arab List Party to support him in his endeavours to oust Prime Minister Netanyahu, probably the best Prime Minister Israel has ever had, who carries the burden of his people on his heart and even considers the ongoing welfare of Arab Israelis living and working in Israel.

       Referring to this anti-Semitic tirade by MK Heba Yazbak Avi went on to say; This is MK Heba Yazbak of the Balad faction of the Joint Arab list. Even according to Israeli law it is forbidden for anyone who holds these views to serve as a Parliamentarian in Israel’s parliament, the Knesset. Yet, Israel’s Supreme Court ignores the law, one election after another, and allows Israeli Arab representatives with these views to serve. That is the ultimate sign of shame, that it is Israel’s High Court of Justice that forces upon Israeli society a total injustice.

       So Benny Gantz, Yair Lapid, Bugi Yaalon, Gabi Ashkenazi and their Blue & White Party just made a political deal with that Joint Arab List party to topple Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Let that sink in! A party led by three ex-IDF Chief of Staffs are working hand in hand with a party that works to destroy Israel as a Jewish state. They also support terrorists who kill Israelis, including Israeli Arabs! And they (the Joint Arab List) support indicting these exact ex-IDF Chief of Staffs at the International Criminal Court in The Hague! Yes, these are their partners to topple the most successful Prime Minister Israel has ever had in strengthening Israel geopolitically and economically.

        This is the sick derangement of the left for all to see. The left is not just destructive, it is self-destructive! You see it clearly in Israel today with the behaviour of this Blue & White Party. It is so sad and absolutely infuriating. We, the proud Jews of Israel, proud of our 4,000 year old heritage and proud of our connection to our ancestral homeland, will overcome this sickness of the left. It is just so sad to see. They are missing out on the most inspirational story of humanity, the return of an ancient and persecuted people as the sovereign in their ancestral homeland after 2,000 years of exile & persecution. We will shine & overcome the self-destructive left. That is how we will defeat the left!”

        In the Book of Daniel when the Maccabees were fighting the armies of Antiochus Epiphanes and fighting for the survival of Israel there were many who joined the ranks of the Maccabees “in hypocrisy” who professed to care for Israel’s welfare but were there to betray and destroy the Maccabee patriots. (Daniel 11:34 KJV) These infiltrators by stealth claimed to be patriotic but in a time when Israel needed to be unified against Antiochus these traitors were more concerned about their own power and survival than they were about aiding the people of Israel being harassed, oppressed and persecuted by the Seleucid Greek soldiers under Antiochus’ command.

        Now Benny Gantz may be a 3 Star General but it seems he is more concerned about holding power than he is about the welfare of all Israelis. He has said he would not work with the Joint Arab List Party if elected to the top job but it seems to get the support he needs in the Knesset he has decided to do this and in effect betray his own people. This is at a time when Israelis should be united and supportive of Prime Minister Netanyahu seeking to help his fellow Israelis while he himself is facing a so called ‘criminal indictment’ because of a ‘witch hunt.’

        He is staying focused on what needs to be done to protect both Jews and Arabs living in Israel in this current crisis concerning COVID-19. The enemies Israel face are bad enough but this enemy is one that needs solid unity to defeat it. Already Israeli scientists are working around the clock to find a vaccine. The Joint Arab List Party are well ensconced within the Knesset but what they are doing is illegal according to Israeli law and Benny Gantz and Reuven Rivlin the President of Israel should know better than to trust the Joint Arab List Party.

       What Benny Gantz and Reuven Rivlin need to realise is what the prophet Daniel wrote; “Blessed be the name of God forever and ever, to whom belong wisdom and might. He changes times and seasons; He removes kings and sets up kings; He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding; He reveals deep and hidden things; He knows what is in the darkness, and the light dwells with Him.” (Daniel 2:20-22)

       Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reads and studies the Bible. He recognizes Israel as the Biblical inheritance and homeland of the Jewish people. He befriends Bible believing Christians and favours their contribution to, and support of Israel. Does Benny Gantz do these things? Why would he even think of doing any kind of political ‘wheeling and dealing’ with the Anti-Zionist Joint Arab List Party? By law they should be thrown out of the Knesset as they do not have Israel’s interests at heart neither do they recognize that God gave the Jewish people the Land of Israel to be for them “an everlasting possession.” (Genesis 17:7-8, 17-21)

       The land of Israel was bequeathed to the Jewish people through a blood covenant God cut with Abraham and with his descendants after him through the lineage of Isaac and Jacob and not through the lineage of Ishmael and Esau. (Genesis Chapter 15) In a very real sense Prime Minister Netanyahu is fighting for Israel’s security and welfare and he is a like a faithful Maccabee in standing against Israel’s enemies on all sides. As yet Prime Minister Netanyahu may not know the Messiah of Israel but it may well be that he is not far from the Kingdom of God. (Mark 12:34)

        He has been placed in that position by the sovereign hand of God even though humans were involved in his election to the top job. If Benny Gantz continues down the path he has chosen he will not only find himself fighting against Israel but also fighting against the God of Israel. It appears he is seeking to ‘dethrone’ God’s lawfully appointed leader for Israel at this crucial time in Israel’s long and troubled history by siding with an implacable enemy that cares nothing for the cause of Zion.
