Israel Always: Some Christians Still Hate Israel

Sadly, most Christians only hear news about Israel through the mainstream media - which is permeated with an anti-Israel bias.

Often I am asked the question, "What's going on in Israel?" Yet if all these questioners listened regularly to my weekly, hour-long "Front Page Jerusalem" radio program, which is broadcast on radio stations around the world and on the Internet, they would have a pretty good idea of what is going on in Israel. However, many Christians do not or cannot listen, nor do they have the time or opportunity to keep up with Israel through other sources of reliable information. Sadly, most Christians only hear news about Israel through the mainstream national TV and print media - which is permeated with a liberal, pro-Arab, anti-Israel bias. You can check it out with any current news article about Gaza. The story pattern always leads with the terrible deeds and damage the Israelis have done to the Palestinian Arabs. You have to go down three or four paragraphs before you get the information that the Arabs started the incident with their rockets or terrorism, and that the Israelis only responded in self-defense. In this way, the liberal U.S. national media are sowing massive misinformation, untruths and hatred toward Israel on a daily basis. Israel is always the bad guy and the bully, while the so-called poor Arabs are the beleaguered, helpless little guys who need the world's sympathy and support. It's a twisted, reversed depiction of the biblical story of David and Goliath. In this context, it has not been too surprising to read recently about another outrageous declaration coming out of the Presbyterian Church/USA. Let me quote a portion of its official assessment of the situation in Israel and the Gaza territory: The recent events in the Gaza Strip are yet another proof that the only solution to the ongoing conflict between Israel and the Palestinians is for Israel to end its illegal, violence-breeding occupation of Palestine. This is deliberate cruel collective punishment and indiscriminate terrorization of an entire population - young and old, men, women and children. It is blatant savagery. With such reckless behavior, Israel is hurling the whole region into chaos. Earl Cox, International Christian Broadcaster, known as 'the voice of Israel to the world.'
