Genocide” means attempting to wipe out an ethnic group. Recent examples of this would be Turkey trying to wipe out the Armenians in 1915 or Germany massacring 6 million Jews during WW2. A current day example is Turkey indiscriminately murdering Ethnic Kurds in and outside of Turkey. “Ethnic Cleansing”, another related term, means removing an ethnic group, by whatever means, from a specific territory. Examples of this would be Atatürk forcing all ethnic Greeks from out of mainland Asia in 1923.
Isaiah 5:20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
When all over the world, there are people who who call evil: good, and call good: evil, the world is in trouble. The massacre committed by Hamas cannot be justified by any moral human being. It copies atrocities from the Turkish invasion of Cyprus in 1974 after which, the Cypriots Catholics had to change their laws to allow abortion, and from ISIS beheadings and from the Nazis utter disregard for human life and dignity. Israel is perfectly justified and obligated in its pursuit of the terrorists and their leaders and facilitators.
Numbers 6:24 The Lord bless thee, and keep thee:
25 The Lord make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee:
26 The Lord lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.
27 And they shall put my name upon the children of Israel, and I will bless them.
What does it mean “And they shall put my name upon the children of Israel”? It means we wear the name of GOD. We are His representatives on this earth. As believers in Yeshua, we understand that. We are wearing GOD’s name, and the world hates us for that because they hate HIM. Secular Jews also understand this, to the point that they wish GOD would choose someone else. This is why we see so much antisemitism in the world today. The world hates GOD, so they hate the Jews and they hate us.
Even though Israelis by and large, do not trust in GOD, GOD has blessed them. By miracles GOD intervened in the War of Independence, the Six Day War, the Yom Kippur War and even Entebbe. HE did this because of HIS promises and for his namesake. HE can intervene and win this war and bring the hostages home.
