If it had not been the Lord who was on our side, now may Israel say; If it had not been the Lord who was on our side, when men rose up against us: Then they had swallowed us up quick, when their wrath was kindled against us: Then the waters had overwhelmed us, the stream had gone over our soul: Then the proud waters had gone over our soul. Blessed be the Lord, who hath not given us as a prey to their teeth. Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers: the snare is broken, and we are escaped. Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth.(Psalm 124)
We have been looking at the phenomenon of AntiSemitism.John the apostle had a vision of a woman,clothed with the Sun,Moon, and Stars, in labor with child. The Woman is confronted by a fierce Red Dragon, who waits to devour the “seed of the woman” as soon as she bears it, and having failed at that, the Dragon seeks to destroy the Woman and her seed.
This is the apocalyptic explanation of the mystery of Anti-Semitism. The woman is Israel. Israel is the vessel the LORD chose to bring into the world the scriptures, true worship and the Messiah to come, who would crush the serpent’s head. The Serpent/Dragon is Satan himself. The Mark of Satanic influence on a people, religion or nation, is AntiSemitism.
The world religion of Islam, spiritual home to 1.7 billion people, is steeped in a deep and virulent Anti-Semitism. Mohammed thought that the Jews and Christians of varying sects would receive him as a Prophet. They didn’t.
The story of the Hijrah (Migration) of Mohammed and his small band of followers at the very foundation of Islam, set the tone for the Islamic future of Islamic relationships with Jews. The Muslims settled in Yathrib, a small city composed of three Jewish tribes, pagans and a small number of Christians.
Yathrib gave Mohammed refuge but as his strength grew and it became obvious that the Jews and Christians were not going to receive Mohammed’s message, He banished two of the Jewish tribes from the city , and slaughtered the third, selling the remaining women and children into slavery.The city was renamed Medina.
Antisemitism is absolutely entrenched in Islam, as the following quote shows us, concerning the ‘Last day” (the day of resurrection).
The Day of Judgement will not come about until Muslims fight the Jews, when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The stones and trees will say O Muslims, O Abdullah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him. Only the Gharkad tree, (the Boxthorn tree) would not do that because it is one of the trees of the Jews. (related by al-Bukhari and Muslim).
Muslims have no assurance of salvation, they do not know if they are going to heaven or hell until the “Last Day”. But that day cannot come until every last Jew is slaughtered, by the Muslims. Surely this is the religion of the Great Red Dragon of Revelation 12.
One verse of the Quran tells the devout that ion the day of Judgment, Allah will grant them a Jew or Christian to throw into Hell in their place.
Islam has taken up the Ancient grievance of Ishmael, Hagar and Esau, nurturing it through feast such as Eid, which celebrates the sacrifice of Ishmael, and teaching that the evil Jews have disenfranchised the Arabs, stealing their inheritance. The Prophet Ezekiel mentions this hatred, calling it “the Everlasting hatred” and threatening a judgment to come upon the Arab Muslim World(Edom) on account of it.
Because thou hast had a perpetual hatred, and hast shed the blood of the children of Israel by the force of the sword in the time of their calamity, in the time that their iniquity had an end: Therefore, as I live, saith the Lord God, I will prepare thee unto blood, and blood shall pursue thee: sith thou hast not hated blood, even blood shall pursue thee. Thus will I make mount Seir most desolate, and cut off from it him that passeth out and him that returneth.(Ezekiel 35:5-7)
One of the confusing things about the Koran, especially for westerners, is that there is a duality running through it. There are verses in the Quran which extol the Jews and Christians as “People of the Book” , people who should be listened to and respected. But these verses were given in the pre-Medina period, before it became obvious that neither Jews or Christians would ever accept Mohammed as a prophet.
But these earlier verses have been “Abrogated” by later verses which admonish the true Muslim, to “not make friends with Jews and Christians…”
O ye who believe! take not the Jews and the Christians for your friends and protectors: They are but friends and protectors to each other. And he amongst you that turns to them (for friendship) is of them. Verily Allah guideth not a people unjust.
Westerners are often baffled by the commonly repeated calumny of Islamic preachers calling Jews the offspring of “Apes and Pigs”. This is not merely an ephithet thrown in haste, it is literally a quotation of the “holy” book of Islam, that God turned the Jews into “Apes”.
And well ye knew those amongst you [Children of Israel] who transgressed in the matter of the Sabbath: We said to them: “Be ye apes, despised and rejected.”
This is why Adolph Hitler is a popular figure in the Arab world, and the Muslim world were enthusiastic supporters of Hitler’s war on the Jews and the allies. The book MEIN KAMPF,(My Jihad) is a best seller in the Muslim world also, and one of Hitlers fiercest Divisions was composed of Arabs, Croatians, Albanians and other eastern European Muslims.
Wherever Islamic immigrants have gone in recent history, violent Anti-Semitism is sure to follow. Jews are leaving Europe, France, Germany, Belgium, in record numbers because it is no longer safe to be a Jew in Europe. I could spend so much time giving you the quotes of modern Muslim leaders, proving them to be AntiSemitic, and advocating for the genocide of the Jewish people, But it is too obvious a fact!
Islamic television programming(financed by grants from the West), features children’s programs which extol the virtues of suicide attacks on Jews, pre-school children are led by a demonic rendering of Mickey Mouse to sing about washing their feet in the blood of Jews, And Ramadan programming treats people to dramas which repeat Midieival blood libels, accusing the Jews of kidnapping Arab people and draining their blood for Matzah!
This level of Hate is of the Devil, and all of those infected by it are at the service of none less than Satan himself.
How do the Jews ever make peace with a people whose very religion requires them to kill and hate Jews (and Christians)?
