A video giving an introduction to the Jewish holiday of Purim, talking about all of the great traditions of one of the most fun holidays in the Jewish calendar.
An estimated 1.3 million people were sent to Auschwitz, and 1.1 million died there including 960,000 Jews. When 75 years ago, the 100th and 322nd divisions of the Soviet Army’s “1st Ukrainian Front” reached the Nazi concentration and extermination camp of Auschwitz-Birkenau they could not believe their eyes. Lots more soldiers came to see similar horror places and being disgusted by that what seemed inhuman many became convinced the whole world should know about this and should make sure this could never happen again.
According to a recent Pew Review Western Europeans who identify as Christian are more likely than those who have no religious affiliation to express negative feelings about immigrants and religious minorities. At the begin period of the 21st century there are still a large group of Christians who also consider themselves to be the rightful heirs of Jerusalem and the Holy Land. Looking at themselves as the sole legitimate heirs of the biblical promises because the Jews rejected and killed the Messiah.
In this last chapter on Zionism, Anti-Zionism, Anti-Semitism, Anti-Christianism we close by looking at the grown group who does not come directly from the ancient Hebrews and look at the fact that to come to a good solution we have to work at a genuine internationalism, and genuine international solidarity, with the knowledge that there can be no meaningful working together of ordinary people wherever tribalism or communalism dominates.
There are people who find occupation is the sheer existence of Israel and her people. The many actions we see Israel undertaking now may indicate that lots of people in Israel either do not know or do not want to know about God His Plan and His Way of doing things or (worse) do not currently know Him.
There are people who find that Israel is The Jewish State, and as such is founded upon the teachings, traditions, and precepts of Judaism, the very foundation of which is War With Gentildom. Virtually every religious feast of importance – from Passover to Purim to Hanukkah–celebrates the destruction of Gentiledom. The 5 ‘books of Moses’ comprising… Lees verder This fighting world, Zionism and Israel #5
In this 100th post on Jeshuaists we look at the 11th - 16th century barbarism by the Roman Catholic church and the 21st century where we can see a dramatic increase of wars and rumors of wars, just as Jesus predicted as well as large conflicts, such as Ezekiel’s war of Gog or the Psalm 83 war and the Great War we shall soon have to face.
That Jews are promised a homeland does not have to get them to take the land from others. They always should remember we are tenants of the Land of God and always do we have to respect all inhabitants of God's World. People living outside Palestine and Israel should see those caught behind walls as real, living breathing human beings rather than either incorrigible terrorists or unthinking puppets of Hamas.
Many may perhaps think that Zionism is an international organization that seeks to influence the world and societies to the Jews’ benefit, but for many Jews Zionism does more bad than good, and at the same time the present crisis is used by several inhabitants of Europe to show both their anti-Semitic, anti-Arab and anti-Muslim feelings.
Coming closer to the end-times we can see many signs indicated in the Bible to be a warning for a big trouble to come. After a Great War the Kingdom of God shall become a reality by which Jerusalem shall be the capital of that Kingdom and Jews shall find peace in the Promised Land, but it is not to man to decide which city and when this capital shall be there forGod's people to live alone or with others.
The idea that raising the issue of antisemitism is a dirtier trick than antisemitism itself is occurring to more and more people apparently independently; each seems dazzled by their own brilliance in solving the puzzle. The insight is that the debate about contemporary antisemitism itself should really be recognised as a manifestation of Zionist ruthlessness and duplicity. This notion, widely held, does serious damage to the possibility of considering antisemitism in a measured and rational way, either politically or academically.
Israel is central to the identity of the overwhelming majority of Jews not just in Britain, but all over the world. The reason is because it is central to Judaism. This doesn’t mean that all Jews agree with everything that the Israeli government does. But even if a Jew or non-Jew does agree with an Israeli government policy which is unpopular abroad, this doesn’t make it legitimate to unleash hatred against them.
The Jewish Concerns Forum dreads the thought of another conflict in the Middle East like in 2014, only this time the Prime Minister is Jeremy Corbyn. Add to this scenario some economic hardship, brought about by Brexit, the need for a scapegoat increases and the people know exactly where to look.
After World War II the children which were placed in Catholic families often found no Jewish families to take care for them or to bring them up in Jewish traditions. Most of them even did not have the opportunity to learn Hebrew and got estranged from Jewish traditions. They married and got children who started to wonder about their ancestors. Several of them also wanted to go back to the Jewish culture and found stronger bounds with Jewish religion, whilst others wanted to keep their faith in the Messiah, but did not want to be counted under the trinitarian Christians.
From the 1930ies there was a feeling it would be better to bring Jewish children away from the European mainland into safety against the upcoming anti-Semitism. Those children came mostly in a non-Jewish environment and some were even submerged in an other religion. Many years later they, their children or grandchildren wanted to find their Jewish connection again and would love to worship the Only One true God again. for that reason many look for becoming to be recognised a as Jew again, though these days they see the danger again of the uprising anti-Semitism, which makes them afraid to come into the open with their faith.
