The Jewish state of Israel, since the beginning of its time, claimed political rights under a fake religious umbrella. The currently Israeli dominated lands were stolen from Palestinians, after the Jews fled European anti-Semitism in the mid 20th century. With the help of the British mandate, and the 1917 Balfour promise, the Israeli state was announced on the ruins of a Palestinian. But is Israel really religious? And Does it have the right to exist?
Terry McIntosh, chairman of the Jesus Christ embassy Palestine, a few months ago launched a campaign to seek the peace of Jerusalem and Biblical recognition and restoration of Palestinian rights.
The campaign reached out to millions of people around the world, and was the reason to retain the right understanding of God’s messages to people. The embassy then designated 12 May, which comes three days before the Palestinian Nakba anniversary, as an International Day of Prayer for Jerusalem against the Israeli occupation.
In his speech at Aida refugee camp in Bethlehem, annexed to the apartheid wall, McIntosh said: “On this side of the Wall, Palestinians will mourn Nakba and seek justice for Palestine. In the midst of it all, it is timely that the truth be told. Restoring long buried truths is difficult and hard for many to hear. It requires diligent effort. We must raise our voice like a trumpet and shout it loud. We cannot hold back.”
“On that day in 1948, Zionist leaders founded the Jewish state on Palestinian land by military force, and set itself up to be the voice of all the people descended from the man named Israel. A debate had raged among Zionist leaders as to what name the new state should be called. Judea and Zion were mentioned as two possibilities. At the last moment, the name Israel was chosen and all the Bible promises of God were unjustly claimed for the benefit of Jews only as God’s Chosen people. It is one of the greatest deceptions in human history. The Chosen People are those with faith in God according to his precepts. It is not a state that rejects the way of God and denies basic human rights to Palestinians.”
McIntosh, in his study, refers to DNA proof showing the relationship between the Palestinians and Jews, by tracing bloodlines of prophets. The Bible story traces the name of Israel first placed upon the ancestors of today’s Palestinians, not the Jews, and DNA testing confirms the Bible link. Some Jews are descendants of Israel, but not all of them. When the Zionists chose the name Israel, the world accepted the illusion that the Zionist state represents all of Israel’s descendants. It is just not true.
The Hebrew Scriptures and Christian Bible is confirmed by science with the advent of DNA testing which is a genetic tracer. The Palestinian ancestral House of Israel lost its national identity during the Assyrian captivity but God promised to keep a remnant in the land during periods of captivity, and He did that. The remnant went through several name changes over the centuries, but today are known as Palestinians.
The Bible Philistines disappeared from history, and the name Palestine has simply been shifted. A serious study of historical records and religious Holy Books confirm that a majority of Palestinians are descendants of the man Israel, and God has included the children of Ishmael, too. It is a difficult truth for many to hear, but the Hebrew University confirms DNA results along with several other leading academic research teams.
According to quotations from the Holy Bible which McIntosh read,
Jeremiah 3: 11-18 says in part, “The Lord said to me, “Faithless Israel (Palestinian ancestors) is more righteous than unfaithful Judah (Jews). Go, proclaim this message toward the north: ‘Return, faithless Israel, (Palestinians) declares the Lord, ‘I will frown on you no longer, for I am faithful,’ declares the Lord…At that time they will call Jerusalem “The Throne of the Lord”, and all nations will gather in Jerusalem to honor the name of the Lord. No longer will they follow the stubbornness of their evil hearts. In those days the people of Judah (Jews) will join the people of Israel (Palestinians), and together they will come from a northern land to the land I gave your ancestors as an inheritance.”
Political Zionism is a foreign growth in the body of the Jewish people and several sects of Judaism reject it altogether. They actively seek justice for Palestinians, too. This same Zionism infected Christianity early on, and enslaved a powerful segment of the Christian community for the purpose of creating a greater Zionist state.
They were lied to regarding the name of Israel belonging only to Jews. The lie has caused these otherwise Godly people to contribute to the continued harm of Palestinians. I appeal to the political Christian Zionist community to return to the Bible and walk in truth for God will sweep away the lie and restore justice. I say again, you cannot love God if you don’t love Palestinians.
McIntosh called on the Zionist Israel to stop the collective punishment policies; tear down this Separation Wall built on stolen land and finally to stop stealing land in the name of God.
