    As I see it, Jesus was not only preaching the bad things of old, he was also preaching redemption. One can be saved; just abide by His instructions, follow His commandments and peace will be your reward.

    God’s Chosen People
    I have a personal attachment to the Old Testament and the verses contained therein. This includes the verses where the Lord talked directly to the Israelite people. In this one-way discussion the Lord laid out directives (commandments) for them to follow and the blessing they would get if they followed His suggestions. I took these directives and compared them to historical events. Personally, I would like to see the Israeli people change their ways by embracing the stranger (Palestinian) and treat them as one of their own, just as the Lord instructed them to do. I truly believe this “example” would create a wave of peace across the middle east.

    In closing I want the Israeli’s to embrace the Palestinians as one of their own, dismantle the illegal settlements and change the name of their country from “Israel” to “Palestine”.

    I believe God is now judging them for the last time. If they do not ask God for forgiveness and repent for their past deeds; then all will be lost.

    I need your help either by helping me or by correction my misguided view of them.

    Any suggestions or comments are welcome whether pro or con.

    The name Palestine was given to the land by the British...in a way to antagonize the Jews...since they were allied to the Arab nations. The name comes from Philistia...or the land of the Philistines. This is unacceptable to the Jews for obvious reasons.

    But the name "Judea" I think would be much better (although this does not seem to include the Palestinian people). This was the name of the country at the time of Jesus.

    How does all this fit in the the people called Palestinians? Well it doesn't really. I can't see any kind of compromise that would satisfy both parties.

    I'm all for the Jews having a homeland. I think the name "Israel" is a misnomer.

    I agree "Israel" is a misnomer, Israel was a person, not a place.
    The homeland you speak of is the land of the Palestinians and the Jews and once you accept this peace will follow but is you do not; the end is written on the wall.

    The choice is your to make
    Make it wisely :)-

    1. The Palestinians are overwhelmingly Muslims. Islam and Judaism will never be at peace with one another, since the Quran itself makes that an impossibility.

    2. The Arab world (by and large) and the Muslim world (totally) have vowed to literally drive the Jews into the sea. Which means the UTTER DESTRUCTION of Israel.

    3. Shiite Iran has been controlled by crazy, demonic, and radical ayatollahs and imams for about 50 years. These evil men have no interest in helping their own people, and have committed billions of dollars towards arming themselves to destroy Israel and to promote Islamist terrorism (Jihad) worldwide. Iran has also been primarily responsible for funding and supplying Hamas and Hezbollah in Palestine so that they can wage war against Israel on a daily basis (while nelgecting their own people).

    4. If you believe you want to personally see this conflict resolved, you would have to ensure that the regimes in Iran and Palestine are REPLACED with sane and sober Muslims who will vow to live at peace with Israel.

    Ok, if you are surrendering, don't bother, the army at your doorstep has decided to go back home for Christmas.

    Tel Zion, I see you :)-

    That statement is totally false. You need to stop looking to FOX to tell you the "news". What FOX brings you is tabloid "gossip"; which is by its definition, gossip or hearsay or even out right lies. From my personal prospective, I found MSNBC "News" to be the most honest; saying the "truth" as best their current evidence can show~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    ~~~~~~~~As opposed to FOX's gossip.

    When it comes to the "real" world wide news, FOX is not one of my choices. :)-
    But I must I say I no longer watch FOX; (nor ever did) because it is a tabloid show on TV shows. It is good for entertainment but--- NOT "real" NEWS.


    Israel, which was a person, not a place; The Israeli's need to comply with the Lord's instructions if they want to survive; if not they will not.

    Israeli's are being controlled by crazy, demonic, and radical Zionists for about 50 years.

    Oh you are so misinformed, been watching to much FOX news is my guess; "The Israeli's were the first to throw bombs into school buses, the only to assassinate European political leaders and kill hundreds (100+) Palestinian children while they set at their UN sponsored class room desk.

    At least you recognized the existence of "Palestine"; now all you have to do is join in with fellow Jews and make Netanyahu give up his Zionist, racist views and welcome the stranger as one of their own. If done; the state of Israel would have a chance to be the moral leader for that region; if not the "state" of Israel is domed!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The above is either a bold faced lie or from someone who has been totally brainwashed. Either way, it's your problem; not mine :)-

    All I ask is you get your Israeli leader; Benjamin Netanyahu to view, treat, care for, help if needed, fellow human beings who just happen to have a faith different from yours; no not just "faith"; but because they were not fellow Jews?

    I ask; can you~~ Benjamin Netanyahu~~~view, treat, care for, help if needed, fellow human beings that are not "Jewish" and treat them as one of your own-?
