October 7th in Context

A Second Look

On February 25, 1994, a Jewish physician and Israeli army officer from Brooklyn, New York named Baruch Goldstein, walked into the Cave of the Patriarchs mosque in Hebron armed with an assault rifle and slaughtered 29 Palestinian men, women and children while they knelt in prayer. An additional 125 people were injured in the onslaught before Goldstein was finally beaten to death while attempting to reload his weapon. This homicidal maniac was a disciple of the terrorist Israeli lawmaker Meir Kahane and strictly obeyed the commandments of 12th century rabbinic scholar Moses Maimonides, including his proscription against administering first aid to wounded or sick Gentiles (non-Jews) when doing so won’t result in any hostility towards Jews. Once, after refusing to treat a Palestinian child who had been shot in the legs, Dr. Goldstein was quoted by Israeli newspaper Yediot Ahronot (Mar. 1, 1994) as saying, “I am not willing to treat any non-Jew. I recognize as legitimate only two authorities: Maimonides and Kahane.”

It’s difficult for non-Jews to fathom the depths of ethnic animosity towards ‘the other’ permeating the Israeli state. Both Itamar Ben-Gvir and Bezalel Smotrich — Benjamin Netanyahu’s current Ministers of National Security and Finance respectively — are outspoken supporters of Baruch Goldstein and his ‘Massacre at the Mosque.’ Ben-Gvir proudly boasts that he once had a portrait of Goldstein prominently displayed within his home, and groups of Jewish settlers continue to eulogize the mass-murdering physician during annual pilgrimages to his grave. (Rabbi Yitzhak Ginsburgh even wrote a book about him titled Baruch Hagaver –Baruch the Saint.) In the aftermath of Goldstein’s slaughter, Noam Federman, a spokesman for the Kach party in Israel, proclaimed, “The act itself was one of greatness. It was a great act of sanctifying the Name (of God).” Not to be outdone, Moshe Belogorodsky, an Israeli municipal council member, was quoted by the New York Times (Mar. 4, 1994) as saying, “It says in the Talmud that when a non-Jew strikes a Jew it’s as if he’s striking the Divine Presence itself…What Baruch did, at least in my book, is the opposite. It’s the sanctification of God’s name.”

Suffice it to say, these are not the words and deeds of a rational people. Ordinary men and women typically don’t lionize mass murderers and bestow upon them divine qualities. In Israel, however, virulent ethnocentrism and seething hatred of the goyim is the rule for many, not the exception. This fact was laid bare for the world to see after the Hamas attack on October 7th, 2023, which has since been used to justify Israel’s full-throttle genocide of the remaining remnant of Palestinian inhabitants of Gaza and the West Bank.

Brief Context

“We are now rolling out the Gaza Nakba.” — Avi Dichter, Israel’s Minister of Agriculture,  Ha’aretz (Nov. 12, 2023)

Hamas’s unprecedented attack wasn’t just some random event materializing out of thin air, as the Jewish media continually tries to portray it. Since 1948, the Palestinian people have been forced to live under a brutal military occupation and have been reduced to a rank below that of second-class citizens in their ancestral homeland. Nakba (Catastrophe) is the term used by Palestinians to describe the ethnic cleansing and murder of some 750,000 people by Zionist militias in 1948. It has come to signify the destruction of Palestinian society and the long-running rejection of the right of return for Palestinian refugees and their descendants. Readers still hoodwinked by Israel’s perpetual victim narrative are encouraged to explore the history of Israeli-instigated massacres, like those which took place in the villages of Deir Yassin, Lydda, Al-Dawayima and Abu Shusha; or the refugee camps Tel al-Zataar, Sabra and Shatila, to name just a few.

Historical grievances aside, there were a handful of recent provocations by the Israelis that were so inflammatory one has to wonder if they weren’t intentionally designed to instigate a reprisal. Chief among these were a series of violent confrontations between Palestinian religious observers and Israeli police occurring at the Al-Aqsa Mosque, located on the Temple Mount, in April of 2023.

Al-Aqsa is the third holiest site in Islam, after Mecca and Medina, and has been the source of considerable tension between Jews and Muslims for centuries. Jews believe it to be the site upon which stood their Second Temple before it was destroyed by Roman emperor Titus during his siege of Jerusalem in 70 AD, thus fulfilling Christ’s prophecy found in the Gospel of Mark. One of Israel’s religious ambitions is to demolish the Al-Aqsa Mosque and rebuild their third and final temple on the site, heralding the arrival of their long-awaited Messiah.

In early April 2023, there were widespread reports that Jewish extremists were planning to perform an animal sacrifice inside the Al-Aqsa compound in observation of Passover, set to begin on the night of April 4th. Indeed, Israeli police detained an individual on April 3rd attempting to do just that. Fanning the flames of an already contentious situation, the aforementioned Minister of Security Itamar Ben-Gvir, urged Jews to storm the Temple Mount in large numbers to pray, violating a long-standing status quo agreement between Jews and Muslims regulating such activities (Al-Aqsa Mosque being an Islamic site where unsolicited visits, prayers and rituals by non-Muslims are forbidden, in accordance with international agreements). The Dr. Goldstein fanboy Ben-Gvir also ordered a drastically increased police force to attend the site, which would only pour gasoline onto the volatile conflagration now beginning to rage.

On the night of April 4, a few hundred Palestinians barricaded themselves inside the Al-Aqsa Mosque after Ramadan prayers due to concern that Jewish extremists intended to sacrifice a goat. In response, heavily armed Israeli police raided the mosque in riot gear, firing rubber bullets and tear gas, throwing stun grenades and beating Palestinians unconscious with batons, injuring at least 50 people and arresting 400. Video of the incident quickly went viral, forcing a senior Israeli official to publicly admit the police response “went too far” — though his true concern might’ve been revealed when he added that the attack “caused significant PR harm to Israel on the global stage.”

Above is a short recap of but one recent provocation in what has been an ongoing saga of oppression and genocide of the Palestinian people for nearly 80 years. Many more horrific examples exist and have been thoroughly documented in dozens of exceptional books on the subject, such as God Cried by Tony Clifton and Catherine Leroy and The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine by Israeli historian Ilan Pappe.

Questions about October 7th

Hamas’s rudimentary military operation on October 7th still remains shrouded in mystery over half a year later. Seemingly unanswerable questions (unanswerable within the framework of the official story anyway) persist and continue to baffle those familiar with the realities of life in occupied Palestine. Thoughtful commentators have wondered how it was possible that Israel, a world leading surveillance/military powerhouse, allowed a primitive attack utilizing hang gliders, tractors, motorcycles and rubber dinghies to form right under their collective nose and to transpire for hours on end without any meaningful military response? Could it be that Israel issued a ‘stand down’ order, allowing the attack to happen for the purpose of justifying specific pre-planned political agendas? If so, it certainly wouldn’t be the first time. (See the Lavon Affair, King David Hotel bombing, USS Liberty, 9/11, etc.)

A former IDF reserve sergeant who gave her name only as Elena, cast doubt on the official story shortly after the attack when she told the media about her past experiences monitoring the border wall separating Gaza and Israel: “There is no chance of approaching the border without being noticed…We looked at the monitor for 4 hours and saw everything that was happening there. It was impossible to even look away. And there are 400 of them. Listen, I was woken up at night when a pigeon was noticed, when a stork approached the fence, almost when a cockroach ran under the fence. And here, it turns out, they calmly overcame everything with the help of tractors? And it turns out that none of the 400 people noticed this? Yes, I’m telling you: not even a dove will fly up unnoticed.”

On October 26, 2023, The Times of Israel reported on a group of IDF soldiers who, for months prior to the attack, repeatedly tried to pass information about “digging, mapping, (and) training near the fence” up their chain of command, but were completely ignored. According to the New York Times (Dec. 2, 2023), Israel knew of Hamas’s plan to attack a year in advance and were even in possession of their 40-page battle plan document, codenamed ‘Jericho Wall,’ that was said to “uncannily mirror” what actually transpired on October 7th! More shocking still was a report in Associated Press (Dec. 1, 2023), which detailed Israel’s obvious awareness of the forthcoming military operation: “The attack was planned in plain sight. A month before the assault, Hamas posted a video to social media showing fighters using explosives to blast through a replica of the border gate, sweep in on pickup trucks and then move building by building through a full-scale reconstruction of an Israeli town, firing automatic weapons at human-silhouetted targets.”

In a December 5, 2023 article titled ‘This Massacre Should Have Been Prevented,’ Israeli newspaper Ha’aretz  reported that the Shin Bet — Israel’s domestic security agency — and IDF military commanders discussed a possible threat to the Nova music festival mere hours before the attack, but this concern wasn’t transmitted to the event’s organizers. Similarly, a BBC investigation revealed that surveillance reports suggested Hamas was planning an imminent operation against Israel, but this too was ignored by senior IDF officials. Oddly enough, just two days before the music festival began, event organizers abruptly switched locations for the site after the original location in southern Israel “didn’t work out.”

Hannibal Directive

Another area of intrigue concerns the controversial Israeli military procedure known as the Hannibal Directive, which is used to prevent capture of Israeli hostages by enemy forces. Basically, the Hannibal Directive is an order issued to IDF soldiers during a kidnapping event instructing them to kill all hijackers by any means necessary, even if it means killing Israeli hostages in the process. In 2014, the Israeli daily newspaper Maariv published a portion of the directive:

“A. During a kidnapping, the main task becomes to rescue our soldiers from the abductors, even at the cost of harming our own soldiers.

B. If the abductors and the kidnapped are identified and the calls are not heeded, a firearm must be fired in order to bring the kidnappers to the ground, or arrest them.

D.(sic) If the vehicle or the hijackers do not stop, they should be fired at individually, intentionally, in order to hit the hijackers, even if it means harming our soldiers. In any case, everything should be done to stop the vehicle and not allow it to escape.”

Multiple Israeli newspapers have reported that the IDF was given orders to employ Hannibal Directive, or something very similar, on October 7th, resulting in the deaths of many Israeli civilians. This datum has been substantiated by numerous survivors of the attack, as well as by multiple IDF soldiers, like Captain Bar Zonshein, who told Israeli media outlet Ynet (Mar. 20, 2024), “We identified two pickups driving Toyotas, and on them, there was a large number of people standing in the cabin, and there was a pile of people. I don’t know whether they were corpses or living people…and I decide to attack these vehicles…I decide that this is the right decision, that it’s better to stop the abduction and that they not be taken.”

Chicago-based publication Electronic Intifada (Oct. 16, 2023), published a long interview with an Israeli woman named Yasmin Porat, who was taken hostage by Palestinian militants in Kibbutz Be’eri. She recounted how she was treated “humanely” during her captivity and was assured of a safe retreat to Gaza due to the protection the Israeli captives presumably afforded. However, once the Israeli soldiers arrived, things took a turn for the worse, and in her own words: “They eliminated everyone, including the hostages. There was very, very heavy crossfire.”

In another article published on March 12, 2024, Electronic Intifada spotlighted the stories of multiple victims of ‘friendly fire,’ courtesy of Israeli helicopter gunships and tanks:

“On 7 October, the Israeli army implemented its controversial Hannibal Directive, which amounts to an order to assassinate Israeli captives to avoid having to barter for their lives by freeing Palestinians held in Israeli prisons. 

At Kibbutz Be’eri, another Israeli colonial settlement near the Gaza boundary fence, the Israeli army attacked a home containing 14 civilian captives and several dozen Hamas fighters. 

All but one of the Qassam fighters and all but two of the captives were killed in the intense crossfire. At least three of the civilians, including 12-year-old Liel Hatsroni, were incinerated by Israeli tank shells fired at the house…The families of the Israeli civilians killed by Israeli army fire at Kibbutz Be’eri have demanded that the military immediately investigate the incident and the decision to use overwhelming firepower at the cost of the lives of their loved ones.”

Similar accounts exist in abundance, like the well-publicized story of three Israeli hostages — Samar Al-Talalka, Alon Shamriz and Yotam Hiam — who had been held for 65 days before emerging from a building upon the arrival of IDF troops to the area. Thinking they had just been rescued, the men exited the building waving makeshift white flags in the air. Unfortunately for them, all three were shot dead by IDF soldiers who later claimed it was a case of mistaken identity.

Creating the Boogeyman

Many people don’t realize it but Israel actually created Hamas to serve as a counterweight to Yasser Arafat’s secular Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) in the late 1980s. Former Israeli religious affairs official Avner Cohen admitted as much to the Wall Street Journal in a January 24, 2009 article titled ‘How Israel Helped to Spawn Hamas,’ stating bluntly: “Hamas, to my great regret, is Israel’s creation.” 

Far from being the radical Islamic jihadist many people today believe him to have been, Yasser Arafat and his PLO were actually far more concerned with hashing out a two-state solution than they were with being mired in endless conflicts and wars with the Zionist state. As a result, they had a more favorable image in the West than the Israelis would’ve liked them to have, especially at the time of the Oslo Accords. A more antagonistic boogeyman was therefore required to disrupt a two-state solution and justify Israel’s ethnic cleansing of the entire region.

Enter Hamas.

It’s no secret that Israel took a leading role in creating Hamas. The European Union’s foreign policy chief, Josep Borrell, informed his audience at a recent speech at the University of Valladolid in Spain: “Yes, Hamas was financed by the government of Israel in an attempt to weaken the Palestinian Authority led by Fatah.” (Reuters, Jan. 19, 2024)

A November 21, 2023 article in the Japan Times titled ‘Israel’s Historical Role in the Rise of Hamas’ referred to the Palestinian resistance group as Israel’s own “Frankenstein monster” and stated that,   “Hamas, a spin-off of the Palestinian branch of the Muslim Brotherhood, was formally established with Israel’s support soon after the first Intifada flared in 1987…Israel’s objective was twofold: to split the nationalist Palestinian movement led by Arafat and, more fundamentally, to thwart the implementation of the two-state solution for resolving the protracted Israeli-Palestinian conflict. By aiding the rise of an Islamist group whose character rejected recognizing the Israeli state, Israel sought to undermine the idea of a two-state solution, including curbing Western support for an independent Palestinian homeland.”

Even Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu acknowledges this fact, like when he told a meeting of Likud Knesset members in March 2019: “Anyone who wants to thwart the establishment of a Palestinian state has to support bolstering Hamas and transferring money to Hamas…This is part of our strategy– to isolate the Palestinians in Gaza from the Palestinians in the West Bank.” (Source:  Ha’aretz, Oct. 9, 2023)

It is often repeated by people who don’t know any better, that Palestine has been the major obstacle to ‘peace in the Middle East.’ Nothing could be further from the truth. Time and time again it has been the Israelis who have stifled serious attempts at peace, though for public relations considerations the opposite is always reported in the press.

In 1993, the PLO agreed to recognize Israeli sovereignty over all territories except the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, both of which have been illegally occupied by Israel’s military since 1967. Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin agreed to the terms which would become known as the Oslo Accords as part of a United Nations process of establishing peace between the Palestinians and Israel. This angered many of the hardline Likud Zionists, who believe the land of Eretz Yisrael should be entirely devoid of non-Jewish peoples. Needless to say, Rabin felt the full weight of public indignation and was even famously portrayed wearing a Nazi SS uniform on posters displayed around Israel.

A policy within Talmudic Judaism is that of din rodef — “law of the pursuer.” Anyone who falls into this category is labelled a rodfim and is liable to be killed without any due process whatsoever. In 2004, Avigdor Neventzal, the Chief Rabbi of the Old City of Jerusalem, provided some insight into one of the many ‘transgressions’ deserving of death under din rodef: “It should be known that anyone who wants to give away Israeli land is like a rodef, and certainly land should not be given to non-Jews. Anyone ceding parts of the Land of Israel to gentiles is, from a halackhic point of view, subject to din rodef.”

On November 4, 1995 a Talmudic law student named Yigal Amir assassinated Prime Minister Rabin on account of his “ceding parts of the Land of Israel to gentiles” by agreeing to the terms of the Oslo Accords. Amir justified the murder on rabbinic grounds when he told the New York Times (Nov. 27, 1995), “According to Jewish law, the minute a Jew betrays his people and country to the enemy, he must be killed. No one taught me that law. I’ve been studying Talmud all my life, and I have all the data.”

Not every sabotage of the peace process comes via a deranged gunman however; Israel’s government is also adept at torpedoing peace talks.

In the Summer of 2002, U.S. President George W. Bush delivered a speech outlining what would become known as the Road Map for Peace, calling for an independent Palestinian state living side by side with Israel in peace. Shortly thereafter, the Bush administration released the final text of the published plan with help and support from the United Nations, European Union, Russia, and the Quartet on the Middle East. Although accepted by Palestinian Prime Minister Mahmoud Abbas and nearly all Western superpowers, right-wing ministers in the Israeli government opposed it and so too did Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, who demanded that the illegal Israeli settlements in the Occupied Territories not be halted — a major point in the plan — and issued a whole host of unacceptable demands, such as denying Palestinian refugees their right of return, something illegal under international law. Needless to say, Bush’s much ballyhooed Roadmap never came into being and his relationship with Ariel ‘Butcher of Beirut’ Sharon would from then on take the form of a master/servant dynamic.

Understanding that the Likud Zionists desire a land free from all non-Jews helps us understand why they would create an organization like Hamas with whom peace negotiations are simply impossible. Israel could never have garnered popular support for their policy of total war on the Palestinian people without having the requisite boogeyman. The Jews almost always employ a dialectic to achieve political aims. It’s for this very reason that former prime minister and head of Israel’s Military Intelligence (AMAN), Ehud Barak, armed, funded and trained the virulently anti-Western group of Gulbuddin Hekmatyr and Osama bin Laden in the years preceding 9/11 and the ill-fated War on Terror. It’s called ‘Problem-Reaction-Solution.’ They covertly create a problem intended to elicit a strong public reaction that ‘something must be done’ and then they swoop in with the solution to the problem they created in the first place. In this case, Hamas serves as the justification to ethnically cleanse the land of Greater Israel in pursuit of its much anticipated Jewish ethno-state extending from the rivers Nile to Euphrates. As Yitzhak Kroizer, a member of the Israeli Knesset told newsmen on November 5, 2023: “The Gaza Strip should be flattened, and for all of them there is but one sentence, and that is death…Gaza has to be wiped off the map, in order to send a message to all our enemies and those who seek us harm…In Gaza, we have to be clear, there are no innocent [civilians]. There are no “uninvolved” people.”

*Similar examples of Israelis sabotaging what would otherwise be successful peace agreements are outlined in detail in the 2007 book The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy by professors John J. Mearsheimer and Stephen M. Walt.*

Put Options

Aside from the unlikelihood that Hamas could plan, coordinate and execute an attack like what transpired on October 7th without Israel knowing about it beforehand and responding accordingly, there exist other reasons for doubting the official narrative.

In the days leading up to the October 7th attack, there was a slew of suspicious short selling of Israeli stocks occurring in the financial marketplace. According to the top US political website The Hill (Dec. 6, 2023), “Unknown stocks traders were betting against Israeli companies just days before the Oct. 7 attack by Hamas, according to new financial research. New York University law professor and former Securities and Exchange Commissioner (SEC) Robert Jackson, Jr. and Columbia University law professor Joshua Mitts found that suspicious trading took place not only ahead of the Oct. 7 attack, but also ahead of an earlier date planned for the attack back in April, as reported by Israeli media… ‘We do identify a sharp and unusual increase, just before the attacks, in trading in risky short-dated options on these companies expiring just after the attacks,’ the researchers wrote. ‘We document a significant spike in short selling in the principal Israeli-company ETF days before the October 7 Hamas attack.”‘

Initially, Israeli regulators tried to claim that it must’ve been Hamas seeking to cash in before its forthcoming attack. But when this conspiracy theory didn’t stand up to scrutiny for obvious reasons, they changed course and claimed that in fact, no suspicious trading prior to October 7th had taken place at all! It had all been just a big mistake! “Nothing to see here folks, move along.” More vigilant observers, however, remembered something extraordinarily similar happening in the days leading up to the September 11, 2001 attacks. As I point out in my book, Perfidy of Zion:

Just before 9/11, an inordinate amount of put options were bought on United Airlines (UA) and American Airlines (AA). A put option is placed on stocks whose future value is thought to be headed for an immediate decline. Something like 95% of UA’s put options were bought on September 6th 2001, and 115,000 shares of AA were bought on September 10th. These purchases were 25 times higher than normal. On October 15, 2001, The International Organization of Securities Commissions stated that profits from the put options, which were also purchased on multiple companies housed in the World Trade Center buildings, had been in the hundreds of millions of dollars and could be the “largest insider trading ever committed.” Clearly, somebody ‘in the know’ had a ‘gut feeling’ the stocks would be plummeting very soon and sought to cash in. The company that handled the put options was AB Brown Investment Bank, a subsidiary of Deutsche Bank. At the time of 9/11, the Executive Director of the CIA was Alvin ‘Buzzy’ Krongard, former CEO and Chairman of AB Brown Investment Bank. As reported in the UK’s Independent (Oct. 14, 2001), “To the embarrassment of investigators, it has also emerged that the firm used to buy many of the ‘put options’ — where a trader, in effect, bets on a share price fall –… was headed until 1998 by ‘Buzzy’ Krongard, now executive director of the CIA.” AB Brown and Alvin Krongard (born to Polish Jewish immigrants) both had strong links to the Israeli state through their connections to Yair Shamir’s company, Scitex. (Alvin Krongard’s wife, Sheryl Gordon, was a long-time employee of Rothschild Asset Management.)

Where Do We Go From Here?

Christians today have a very warped sense of their relationship with the people who, as Saint Paul said in 1 Thessalonians 2:15, “killed the Lord Jesus, and their own prophets, and have persecuted us; and they please not God, and are contrary to all men.” Because of a belief in some shared ‘Judeo-Christian tradition,’ many Christians have lost the plot and forgotten who their ancient adversaries are; i.e., those who vehemently reject Christ and have constructed an entire theological edifice based on that rejection.

The following is from a March 29, 2023 article on

A bill introduced in the Israeli Knesset to criminalize evangelism in the Holy Land points to the fear among Orthodox Jews that if Jewish people are presented with the Good News message, they will follow Jesus, a former consultant to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says…Introduced by Knesset members Moshe Gafni, a long-serving lawmaker who has frequently proposed such legislation over the past couple of decades, and Yaakov Asher, the bill’s language specifically referenced Christians who evangelize to “solicit conversion of religion.” The proposed legislation would have also prohibited the creation of Hebrew-language online videos that preached about Jesus out of concern that Jewish minors might watch them. “Recently, the attempts of missionary groups, mainly Christians, to solicit conversion of religion have increased,” the bill’s English translation states. “At times, these attempts do not involve monetary promises or material gains and are therefore not illegal according to the current law, but the many negative repercussions, including psychological damages, warrant the intervention of the legislature.”

An August 4, 2023 article in Jerusalem Post titled, ‘Concerns grow over rising attacks against Christian sites in Israel’ gives some indication as to the indignities Christians are forced to bear on a regular basis inside the Zionist state:

The title of a conference that took place in Jerusalem in June—“Why Do (Some) Jews Spit at Gentiles?”—rankled with many Israelis. But for the small Christian minority living in Israel, spitting may be the least of their concerns. So far in 2023, there have been dozens of attacks by extremist Jews on Christians or Christian sites, ranging from the merely unpleasant to vandalism and assault. “Definitely there has been an increase—in the last year, a very high increase—in all types of violence, spitting, attacks on sites, provocations,” Farid Jubran, general counsel of the Catholic Church’s Custody of the Holy Land, told The Media Line.

Jubran said the recently created Religious Freedom Data Center lists 20 incidents in July alone, and that he knew of incidents that were not reported, either because the victims were unaware of the center’s hotline or because they had grown accustomed to such incidents and did not bother reporting them.

In January this year, almost 30 graves at a Protestant cemetery on Mount Zion in Jerusalem were vandalized. Two Orthodox Jewish teenagers, one aged 18 and the other 14, were arrested based on surveillance camera footage.

Since then, in Jerusalem alone, further incidents have included: A mob of at least a dozen Orthodox Jews overturning tables and throwing chairs at the Taboon Armenian restaurant; a Jewish American tourist toppling a statue of Jesus at the Church of the Flagellation; two Jewish men attacking a bishop and two priests during Mass at the Church of Gethsemane; two Jewish passersby pepper-spraying a young man outside the Armenian convent; and a window in the Cenacle or Upper Room on Mount Zion, where Jesus and the apostles are believed to have held the Last Supper, being smashed by a Jewish man…In a meeting in July with Vatican Foreign Minister Archbishop Paul Gallagher, Israeli Foreign Minister Eli Cohen condemned violence against Christians. “We are committed to maintaining the safety and dignity of Christians in Israel. We will show zero tolerance towards cases of violence based on hate,” he said.

Wadie Abunassar, coordinator of the Holy Land Christian Forum, said that “nice words” from the state were not enough. “We are concerned not only about the incidents but about a lack of sufficient action from the state authority,” Abunassar told The Media Line. “Our main problem is not with the hooligans or criminals,” but with how the governing authorities respond, he said. “We ask two main questions that are until now without answers: how the state would behave if Arabs or Christians were attacking the Jewish side; and how the state would behave if Jews abroad were targeted,” he said.

Much of the animosity towards Christians stems from the corruptive influence the Talmud and associated rabbinic hate-texts have in the religious lives of the large Orthodox population in Israel.

Catholic scholar and expert on rabbinic texts, Michael A. Hoffman, writes:

Torat Ha-Melekh is an Israeli rabbinic book based on the Talmud which has been widely distributed to Israeli military personnel. Torat Ha-Melekh teaches that it is a religious duty to kill non-Jewish children on the enemy side during warfare, “if there is a good chance they will grow up to be like their evil parents.” Other reasons the Israeli authors furnish for the permission to kill non-Jewish children include if they “block the rescue of Jews…Little children are often situated in this way…it is permitted to kill them because their very presence facilitates the killing (of Jews)…(p. 215). “It is also permitted to kill the children of the leader (of the enemy) in order to put pressure on him…” (p. 215).

Understanding the Talmud and cognate rabbinic texts is crucial to understanding the mentality driving so many of Israel’s political, religious and military leaders today, like Defense Minister Yoav Gallant, who told the Israeli media on October 9, 2023: “We are imposing a complete siege on the city of Gaza. There will be no electricity, no food, no water, no fuel, everything is closed. We are fighting human animals and we are acting accordingly.” 

Giora Eiland, the former head of Israel’s National Security Council, said on October 11th: “Israel has no choice but to render Gaza into a place that is temporarily, or permanently, unfit for living.” 

Expounding on this theme a month later, Eiland said: “…we should make sure that there is a severe humanitarian disaster there (in Gaza), and severe epidemics, and horrible pressure, and cries to the sky—because that’s how wars are won…A humanitarian disaster is the only way to bring about the end of the war in a desirable way. Think about it this way: the poor women of Gaza, who are they? They are the mothers and sisters and wives of the Hamas murderers. Gaza’s system, unlike [its characterization by the US which I mentioned earlier] that there is Hamas and there are civilians—it is not true! Gaza is a state that is entirely united around its leader and its ideology for 15 years, without any dissent and with enthusiastic support….The weak point is their civilian population…the thousands of Hamas terrorists, whose mothers and wives and children who will start suffering from severe illnesses, are the point of weakness. If we want to win the war—that’s how you win a war.”

Moshe Feiglin, a sitting member of the Israeli Knesset, contributed his thoughts to the conversation on October 26th: “Do not leave a stone unturned in Gaza. Gaza needs to turn into Dresden. Complete incineration. Annihilate Gaza now!”

Member of the Knesset, Galit Distel-Atbaryan, called for outright genocide on November 1st: “Spend your energy on one thing; wiping Gaza off the face of the earth. Let the Gazan monsters fly to the southern fence and flee into Egyptian territory. Or have them die. And have them die horribly. Gaza must be wiped out…We require a revengeful and cruel IDF. Anything less than that is immoral. Simply immoral.”

And on the same day Amichai Eliyahu, Israeli Minister of Heritage, said: “The north of the Gaza strip—more beautiful than ever. Blowing up and flattening everything, simply a delight for the eyes.”

I could go on and on but I think the point has been made.

Where can Jesus Christ be found in any of this? There is nothing Christian about supporting those who reject Christ and have manufactured an entire identity based upon that rejection. Right now, the U.S. media is trying desperately to equate support for Palestine with the various agendas of the radical Left. Their hope in so doing is to drum up support among conservative Americans for a Zionist regime that has led our nation into decades of costly wars in the Middle East and is actively engaged in perpetrating a genocide of Palestinian Christians and Muslims. Don’t for a minute allow yourselves to fall victim to the unholy machinations of the MSM, who are hard at work using the obsolete categories of Right vs. Left to neutralize what could be a great awakening.
