Ambush bug you might want to do a bit of reading yourself since there are a few prophecies about Israel being restored which you seem to neglect.

Like

Jeremiah 23:3 "I myself will gather the remnant of my flock out of all the countries where I have driven them and will bring them back to their pasture, where they will be fruitful and increase in number.

Isaiah 43:5&6 "Do not be afraid, for I am with you; I will bring your children from the east and gather you from the west.  I will say to the north, 'Give them up!' and to the south, 'Do not hold them back.  Bring my sons from afar and my
daughters from the ends of the earth."

Ezekiel 36:24-28 "For I will take you from among the nations, gather you out of all countries, and bring you into your own land. 25 Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you shall be clean; I will cleanse you from all your filthiness and from all your idols.  I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.  I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will keep My judgments and do themThen you shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; you shall be My people, and I will be your God."

Also if you would read the Bible more a pattern would emerge that shows Israel would be disobedient, then be punished by God, normally by foreign occupation and at times exile from the land for a time, but then a reconciliation which would bring them back to the land and the removal of the foreign occupation.

Lastly if anyone is bringing up God changing it is you Ambush Bug.  In the Bible it clearly states that God promised the land of Israel to Abraham and his descendants the Israelites.  By claiming that the Jews lost their right to the land you are changing God's promise to Abraham.  

The State of Israel is not living by the Law of God and the State of Israel obviously aren't living by God's spirit.

The State of Israel began disobedient to God and remains disobedient to God.

The State of Israel violates too many human rights laws.

Zionism is anti-Torah in every aspect.

Have you even bothered to read Ezekiel 22, Jeremiah 22, and Habakkuk 2?

"I charge thee in the sight of God, who giveth life to all things, and of Christ Jesus, who before Pontius Pilate witnessed the good confession; that thou keep the commandment, without spot, without reproach, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ: which in its own times he shall show, WHO IS THE BLESSED AND ONLY POTENTE, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS; who only hath immortality, dwelling in light unapproachable; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honor and power eternal. Amen" (I Tim 6:13-16).

Bug believes in "special" Jews.  No Zionists need apply for they are not worthy in his book - GOD'S opinion to the contrary notwithstanding....

No, you just blindly believe in the simple equation of Jew = Palestine/Israel = God's will.

but what about disobedient/non-believing Jew = Palestine/Israel = is not God's will?

Why did the Jews go into captivity in the first, 'and then'? Why didnt God just let bygones be bygones. Jews are in the land that is all that matters is your philosophy. Why didnt God follow that same philosophy? Why didnt God just leave them alone and keep them in the land of Israel? Why were they put under judgment to begin with? Instead of your idea, "well their in the land and thats all that matters to ... me."

After all 44% of them are secular and another 27% is non-observant. I find the government rather fascist, discriminatory, inhumane, and callous in its treatment of Arab Israelis and occupied Arab Palestinians.

Are the Jews in the State of Israel now due for judgment just like their pre-Captivity ancient ancestors? If no, why not?

Only if you consider that 2/3 of them will DIE, I guess.  Is THAT judgment enough for you Bug?  Stop playing God for awhile and read the scriptures.

Wait a minute... I am not playing God, you are... I am speaking about human rights here. Israel violates the human rights of the Arabs and that has been my WHOLE contention since participating in this forum.

Not whether or not the Jews will fall under judgment. You can reference Ezekiel chapter 5, Zechariah 13:8-9, and Zephaniah 3:12-13 all you want BUT all too willing to turn a blind eye to the plight of the Arabs in Israel and the occupied territories. The suffering of the Arabs never ceases in these parts. They are being pushed and crowded into isolated ghettos in the occupied territories while Israel builds a 25 ft wall INSIDE the green line, has built 269 illegal settlements, all interconnected by "Jew only" roads and 2-3 lane highways. The occupied territories (West Bank and East Jerusalem) is being cut-up to pieces, and this is legally Palestinian land. Already, the Arabs lead a sordid bantustan existance, forced to live in isolated islands, separated from their brethren and relatives elsewhere.

FAST FACTS

522 roadblocks and checkpoints obstruct Palestinian movement in the West Bank, compared to 503  in July 2010.

So far in 2011, an additional 495 ad-hoc ‘flying’ checkpoints obstructed movement around the West Bank each month (on average), compared to 351 in the past two years.

200,000 people from 70 villages are forced to use detours between two to five times longer than the direct route to their closest city due to movement restrictions.

One or more of the main entrances are blocked to Palestinian traffic in ten out of eleven major West Bank cities.

Palestinians holding West Bank IDs require entry permits to enter East Jerusalem and are limited to using four of the 16 checkpoints along the Barrier.

62 percent of the Barrier is completed, with 80 percent of the Barrier route built inside the West Bank, with highly limited access to areas behind the Barrier.

Four of the five roads into the Jordan Valley are not accessible to most Palestinian vehicles.

Almost 80 percent of land in the Jordan Valley is off-limits to Palestinians, with the land designated for Israeli settlements, ‘firing zones’ and ‘nature reserves’.

122 closure obstacles shut off the Old City of Hebron from the rest of the city.

Palestinian access to their private land around 55 Israeli settlements is highly restricted.

1.  The civilian population of the occupied Palestinian territory (oPt) must be allowed to enjoy basic rights guaranteed in international law, including the right to freedom of movementand choice of residence, as well as the right to an adequate standard of living, adequate housing and access to education and healthcare. The Israeli authorities should facilitate the movement of civilians by removing checkpoints and obstacles not necessary for legitimate security purposes.

2.  Most movement restrictions in the West Bank were introduced following the outbreak of the second Intifada in September 2000 as temporary measures to contain Palestinian violence.The majority of these have remained in place despite a significant improvement in the security situation, and close cooperation between security forces of the Palestinian Authority and Israel.

3.  Despite improvements in the past three years, Palestinians still face difficulties accessing main urban centres in the West Bank. Most Palestinian traffic is funnelled onto secondary and often lower-quality routes affecting their access to services and livelihoods.

4.  Access to East Jerusalem is severely restricted by the Barrier, checkpoints and a permit system. This situation has a particularly negative impact on patients and medical staff, who need to access the six specialised hospitals in East Jerusalem, providing services unavailable elsewhere in the oPt. This system also impedes access to Muslim and Christian places of worship in East Jerusalem.

5.  Palestinian access to large rural areas in the West Bank is restricted by physical obstacles and bureaucratic requirements. This includes areas located between the Barrier and the Green Line, the Jordan Valley (30 percent of the West Bank), and agricultural land near Israeli settlements, with a severe impact on access to livelihoods and basic services.

6.  Most of the movement restrictions imposed on Palestinians aim to protect the 500,000 Israeli settlers living in settlements established in contravention of international humanitarian law, aim to secure land for expansion of settlements, and to improve their connections with Israel.

The number of settler attacks resulting in Palestinian casualties and property damage has increased by 32% in 2011 compared to 2010, and by over 144% compared to 2009.

In 2011, three Palestinians were killed and 183 injured by Israeli settlers. In addition, one Palestinian
was killed, and 125 others injured, by Israeli soldiers during clashes between Israeli settlers and
Palestinians.

Eight Israeli settlers were killed and 37 others injured by Palestinians in 2011, compared to five killed
and 50 injured in 2010.

In 2011, about 10,000 Palestinian-owned trees, primarily olive trees, were damaged or destroyed by
Israeli settlers, significantly undermining the livelihoods of hundreds of families.

In 2011, 139 Palestinians were displaced due to settler attacks, with some affected families moving to Area A and B.

Over 90% of monitored complaints regarding settler violence filed by Palestinians with the Israeli
police in recent years have been closed without indictment.

OCHA has identified over 80 communities with a combined population of nearly 250,000 Palestinians vulnerable to settler violence, including 76,000 who are at high-risk.

1. Violence by Israeli settlers undermines the physical security and livelihoods of Palestinians living under Israel’s prolonged military occupation.This violence includes physical assaults, harassment, takeover of and damage to private property, obstructed access to grazing and agricultural land, and attacks on livestock and agricultural land, among others.

2. In recent years, many attacks have been carried out by settlers living in settlement “outposts,” small satellite settlements built without official authorization, many on privately-owned Palestinian land. Since 2008, settlers have attacked Palestinians and their property as a means of discouraging the Israeli authorities from dismantling these outposts (the so-called “price tag” strategy).

3. The root cause of the settler violence phenomenon is Israel’s decades-long policy of illegally facilitating the settling of its citizens inside occupied Palestinian territory.  This activity has resulted in the progressive takeover of Palestinian land, resources and transportation routes and has created two separate systems of rights and privileges, favoring Israeli citizens at the expense of the over 2.5 million Palestinian residents of the West Bank. Recent official efforts to retroactively legalize settler takeover of privately-owned Palestinian land actively promotes a culture of impunity that contributes to continued violence.

4. The Israeli authorities repeatedly fail to enforce the rule of law in response to Israeli settlers’ acts of violence against Palestinians. Israeli forces often fail to stop attacks and follow-up afterwards is inadequate or poorly conducted. Measures of the current system, including requiring Palestinians to file complaints at police stations located inside Israeli settlements, actively work against the rule of law by discouraging Palestinians from filing complaints.

5. The risk of displacement of vulnerable families as a result of settler violence is an issue of increasing concern.Settler violence creates pressure and constant hardship on some Palestinian communities, particularly when combined with other difficulties, such as access and movement restrictions and house demolitions. Displacement has serious immediate and longer-term physical, socio-economic and emotional impacts on Palestinian families and communities.

6. Under international humanitarian law and international human rights law,  Israel is obligated to prevent attacks against civilians or their property and ensure that all incidents of setter violence are investigated in a thorough, impartial and independent manner.

This is a point I have tried to make multiple times and either failed due to my inability to express myself or because of the simple obstinacy of others.  The mindset of the Palestinian is all or nothing and the capacity for violence is unlimited.  That combination makes ANY CONCESSION more likely to be used against Israel than to forward a real peace.  But Israel must make "tough choices"....  I wonder, if those who say this had to bury THEIR children how ready they would be to make further tough choices?

How does 1,300 years of dominance in Palestine qualify as squatting? Can Native Americans in 1,100 years from now call Americans squatters? And boot us out? Send us to Canada and Mexico to live as refugees?

Who is ultimately responsible for the Refugees? Israel is. Israel needs to grant the right of return to the refugees.

Hey, Israel recognized the UN partition not the Arabs. The UN gave Israel 54% of the land, but they took 77% of the land, occupy an additional 22%, and have completely blockaded the last 1% both by sea and land and air.

These restrictions arent necessary, how about Israel cease its West Bank occupation, tear down and dismantle its 296 illegal settlements, and remove all of more than half a million illegal settlers from the West Bank and East Jerusalem?

The main deterrent of peace in Israel/Palestine is the occupation and the illegal settlements.

I hate to tell you this but the movie Exodus was pure fiction, adapted from a novel by Leon Uris.

It is full of historical biased distortions and cliche-ridden garbage... if that is the full measure of your Israel/Palestine history. Hahaha!

Israel could vacate every square inch of land that the Palestinians claim is occupied and they STILL would be harassed and killed.  Read the Qur'an Bug.  Arafat formed the Palestine LIBERATION Organization in 1964.  Three full years prior to the so called occupation of the "West Bank" and Gaza.  What was he trying to liberate at that time, Bug?  Why can't you be honest for th sake of discussion and admit that the Palestinians feel that ALL the land is their's?

That is the real reason for the occupation and settlements afterall. An intentional obstacle presented in the way of Palestine ever becoming a viable state.

I have often made that statement....as well as concurring with it's validity IMO....  But still you avoid answering.  Why is it so hard?

I have often made that statement....as well as concurring with it's validity IMO....  But still you avoid answering.  Why is it so hard?

First the Balfour Declaration was made without consulting the Arabs even after the MacMahon-Hussein correspondance. The Arabs also never agreed to the UN 1947 Partition Plan either as they justly felt it was unfair to alot most of the land, the best of the land, to an immigrant minority.

"I charge thee in the sight of God, who giveth life to all things, and of Christ Jesus, who before Pontius Pilate witnessed the good confession; that thou keep the commandment, without spot, without reproach, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ: which in its own times he shall show, WHO IS THE BLESSED AND ONLY POTENTE, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS; who only hath immortality, dwelling in light unapproachable; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honor and power eternal. Amen" (I Tim 6:13-16).
