You are a vile, ill tempered and insulting excuse for a human being.  You advocate that Palestinians be freed from any kind of controls even when you KNOW, you KNOW they will use that freedom to attack Jews and kill them.  Then you hide behind semantics to spew more hate.  Done with you - I think you are a disgrace.
I've advocated for international peacekeepers, if repeating that for the 90th time helps that shot memory of yours.   Don't accuse me of supporting murder when you have no evidence for such desperate BS.

Quoting scripture that doesn't support your claims now?  The Bible does tell that they will inhabit that land - I assume you believe the Bible, since you quote it so often?  If so, WHEN, do you believe they will possess this land?  And what do you imagine has become of the "rightful" owners?  Did God *gasp* make them give it up?
And can you name a Palestinian King, Prince, Potentate or president prior to 1960?  A Palestinian invention?  Perhaps a car or a plane or even a desk that is called Palestinian in a museum?

An apostate Israel is never supposed to return to the land because every time Israel was uprooted it was for its apostacy. But it is God that is supposed to lead them back to possess the land himself. See: Hosea 1:7, Zechariah 4:6, Isaiah 30:1.

Many non-Zionists religious Jews await the Messiah to lead them back to the land and reject Zionism outright.

"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).

You're the Christian Zionist not I. Do not Christian Zionists vow that an obscure passage of scripture in Zechariah 13:8-9 has yet to be fulfilled and regards the current state of Israel.

Here is that piece of scripture for all whom may not have a Bible handy:

And it will come about in all the land,
Declares the Lord,
That two parts in it will be cut off and perish;
But the third will be left in it.

And I will bring the third part through fire,
Refine them as silver is refined,
And test them as gold is tested.
They will call on My name,
And I will answer them;
I will say, 'They are my people,'
And they will say, 'The Lord is my God.'


Zechariah 13:8-9

So basically what you are saying is God raised this oppressive regime and then will destroy 2/3 of the current Jewish Israelis and leave 1/3 of the Jewish Israelis alive to lead humbled and contrite lives and basically will love their neighbors (the Palestinians).

Christian Zionism believes the Zionists have inalienable rights to the land.

What Christians such as myself believe is that the Palestinians have lived continuously in these lands for 1,300 years and have no rights.

We see prophecy and the Word of God directly conflicting with and contradicting Zionism. Thus, we go with the word of God and reject Zionism and its apartheid policies because it was these very same social issues and disobedience that led God to put the ancient Jews into the Babylonian captivity IN THE FIRST PLACE.


I think this passage has been fulfilled.  There were three groups of isrealites in the land.  The missing ten tribes, the jews, and the sameritans(half blooded ten tribes.)  The ten tribes were the first group to be cut out.  The jews were second and the sameritans still live in the land.  About four hundred left.  Although they converted to islam out of fear.

I am a mormon.  If I don't use mormons believe, those my beliefs only.
I do not go to church haven't for thirty years.
There are other mormons on this site. So if I have misspoken about the beliefs. I welcome their input.
I am not perfect and never will be. I do strive to be true to myself. I do my best to stay true to the mormon faith. Thank for careing and if you don't peace be with you.

God told abraham that al the land you can see is yours. Paraphrased.  Sounds like a place to me.  Everytime they were removed' they were sent back to that land.  This is just the latest such returns.  Most christians believe it is the last time.

And I am one of those who believes this way.  I believe that being "anti Zionist" is just a re-wrapping of a very old and hateful package.  Or did I miss any of the dozens of videos and cited publications on the evils of Darfur or the Rohinga?

Yes, he told Abraham that. And he also told Abraham that his descendants would be as vast as the stars in the sky and as numerous as the sand by the sea. Yet, it is estimated that there were 18 million Jews worldwide in 1939, it is estimated that there were 12 million Jews worldwide in 1945, and it is roughly estimated 14 million Jews worldwide today. That averages about a growth of 30,000 per a year over the last 68 years. Roughly speaking with round figures, 50% of world Jewry lives in the United States, and roughly 50% live in Israel today.

And God also promised Abraham and his descendents would possess all the land, from the river of Egypt to the river Euphrates. Tell me something, how can 6 million Jews possess the land from the river of Egypt to the river Euphrates? That is heck of alot of real estate for 6 million souls. Not to mention that there are about 367 million Arabs that says they can't and will not ever possess it.

The closest the Jews came to possessing the land from the river of Egypt to the river Euphrates is during the Davidic Kingdom, but they didn't even come close to the river Euphrates.

You forget that the arabs are also abrahams children.  You also forget that there are ten lost tribes as well.  Which the germanic tribes that took europe may be part of those tribes.  So counting the arabs, abrahams children own all of the land promised.
If the arabs try to make a case as the one in the op then they have no more claim to that sliver of land than the jews.

My suggestion is for international peacekeepers within Israel-Palestine proper.   Israel is responsible for its own borders.  If it wants to button down its border with Gaza for its own security, that's its business.   But blockading international waters and attacking ships from Ireland, Greece, Turkey, the US etc puts Israel in violation of international law once again.  I don't understand why there was no additional legal action taken against Israel for stealing the private property of the blockade runners, laptops, cell phones, IDs, passports, money, credit cards, and so forth.  Credit card fraud was rampant for these people in the months following Israel's commando raids.   This property was taken officially, not dropped in back alleys for common criminals to exploit.   Israel believes it's above the law, and so long as the world sits idly by they will continue to.  A blockade is an act of war and a legitimate action in war, so if there is war between Israel and Gaza, whining about rockets is just whining about the other side fighting back.  Non-violent civil action is my favorite way to fight Israel's tyranny.   Violent or not, self-defense is a universal right.   Like any other American, if some foreign power was depriving my civil liberties, I'd be interested in rifles, rockets, roadside bombs, sabotage, ambush, and other guerrilla tactics too.   I'm not advocating the same thing for Palestinians but I'm not denying them the exact same right that I enjoy.

I have to admit, Israel makes me love my country a little bit more when I see how astronomically superior the US government is to Israel's in the way it treats people.  It's deplorable that we aid such a state actor as Israel financially and militarily.   We should aid them with counsel and counsel only, which they desperately need.   I've grown to understand that no country is bad, countries are only both good and bad.   Focusing on how countries are bad is useful in going to war on them.   There are many wonderful people in Israel and of course we must consider their security.   No state can function with bombs going off in cafes and bus stops.  That said, Palestinians can't lay down and roll over like the Israeli govt would have them do.

Except that the rockets came first.

Also, all countries have right to stop and inspect any ship entering their waters.  The only reason Isreal stop those ships where they did was to save lives.  The palistanians were going to send out motor boats to escort them to port.  So isreal stopped te ships out of range of the boats.

And don't forger you said isreal owns gaza.

These problems long predate Palestinian rockets.  The rockets came before the media paid attention.

And don't forger you said isreal owns gaza.
?

Keeping the wheelchairs and concrete out of Gaza saved lives?   If those ships docked in port, nobody would have died.  But the ships were raided by Israel and nine died.   Keeping up with convention, the deck of a US ship is US sovereign.  Any attack on that ship is an attack on the United States.  Moreover, any attack on a member of NATO is an attack on all members of NATO.   By the letter of our treaty we would have been at war with Israel.  But laws aren't for Israel.  They're for Saddam Hussein though.

Don't get sanctimonious with me. I just proved my point about how people mold the scriptures to their personal "politics" and agendas even though there is tons of evidence stacked against their interpretations. Like the prophet said, "here alittle, there alittle".

Absolutely, that's the very point I am making. No one knows who the lost tribes, some say it is the Britons, some say it is the Germans, some say it is the Scandinavians, some say its the Irish, some say its the Asians, some say its the Africans, etc.

One really interesting bit of scripture is found in 1 Kings 9:5, and this particular piece of scripture suggests the lost tribes can be indentified by its monarchy.
