The modern state of Israel is under attack like never before since her 1948 founding from all sides throughout the world. Recently a secular Israeli said shortly after this summer’s war (2006) with Hezbollah, “Every year they hate us more.” No matter what Israel does, whether good or bad, it is viewed by most of the world as a provocation that justifies the world’s hatred toward God’s covenant nation.
If that’s not bad enough, you would think that people of the Book (Christians), would be unified in their support of contemporary Israel since God is bringing His people back to their land. Yet, an increasing number of many within Christendom are speaking out, and like the unbelieving world, they too are blaming Israel for the problems in the Middle East.
