Why do so many people in the world hate the Jews? Why is there so much anti-Semitism in the world? Why do so many nations in the world seem to despise Israel? I think the answer is plain and clear. The answer is God. The root cause of the hatred of the Jews and the animosity toward Israel is none other than hatred for God Himself. I mean the one and only true God, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob - the God of Israel. The hatred of the peoples of the world for Israel is, in truth, simply a symptom. Those who hate rebel against being accountable to God, and against living by His righteous values and standards, presented to us in the Torah and the Bible. In domestic US politics, this anti-God bias is reflected in the unfailing opposition among liberals to the clear teachings of God's Word. In education, these liberals have succeeded in expelling God from public schools, along with the Ten Commandments, the entire Bible, and prayer. Think of how the news media handle the news of the Israeli-Arab conflict. The Jews are "God's Chosen People"; there's no way that the liberal media will treat them fairly. God does not promise that there will be any abatement of this hatred in the near future. In fact, the bible indicates it may even get worse. The prophets of the Tanach tell us that in the end times this process will culminate in a coalition of armies arraying themselves for battle with the intent to annihilate Israel. Current events indicate that this battle may be imminent. But the prophecy goes on to say that the God of Israel will destroy these armies before they can do any damage. My Bible tells me that God will bless those who bless Israel and curse those who curse Israel, and history has confirmed God's word. It would seem that the enemies of Israel would do well to recognize this truth and embrace Israel rather than engage in what will prove to be self destructive behaviors.
