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.

  • Hamas is lying to its “human shields.” The Washington Post (14/5) reported that “At a gathering point east of Gaza City, organizers urged demonstrators to burst through the fence, telling them Israeli soldiers were fleeing their positions.”
  • These protests weren’t peaceful. The New York Times (27/4) cited “the Molotov cocktails thrown at Israeli soldiers and firebombs attached to kites that are routinely sailed over the fence, setting fires to Israeli farmland.”
  • The Israeli Defence Forces had said that some “peaceful demonstrators” fired on its soldiers or attempted to place explosive devices along the border.
  • For the third time in 2 weeks the Kerem Shalom border crossing, through which Israel sends medicine, fuel and other humanitarian essentials, was set on fire by Hamas activists—just another way of causing suffering to the populace it is supposed to be serving.
  • Prime Minister Netanyahu’s stated that Hamas is “pushing civilians, women, children into the line of fire with the view of getting casualties…, in order to pressure Israel.”
  • In an interview with Al Jazeera on Sunday, Hamas co-founder Mahmoud al-Zahar said thatrecent Palestinian riots on the border were backed by the Islamist group’s fighters and weapons”  and “When we talk about ‘peaceful resistance,’ it is to deceive the public”.  Could it be any clearer?

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!!

    The book, Son of Hamas, by Mosab Hassan Yousef, about the conversion of the son of the main leader of Hamas, is a good read, providing an intercessor with hope, that God can bring Hamas leaders to Christ. This is not too hard for him.

    Actually Hamas paid USD 3000 for every person died and USD 300 to 500 for every injured person. Anyone who appears in Gaza riot will get USD 100. The unemployment rate is as high as 40% in Gaza and such money is very attractive for Gaza people. The money is mainly from Iran, which is supporting almost every anti-Israel activity.Indeed, as Israeli Prime Minster mentioned, the peace shall be established on truth. Without truth, there is no true peace. The terrorists in Gaza, the Hezbollah in Lebanon, and the troops and missiles sent to Syria, are all directly or indirectly by Iran. which is boasting to “wipe Israel our of the map”. Let’s pray for Iran to know the truth and the leaders of Iran repent and be humble like Nebuchadnezzar to acknowledge the Most High (Daniel 4:30-32). May the king of Iran be like the king of Persia, Cyrus, to be a blessing instead of a curse to the Jewish people. May the United Nations stand on the truth instead of rumors.
