Since Durham, Carolina’s city council, according to reports in Israeli news, voted to cease training with the Israel Police and Israel Defense Force; I propose they go all the way.
First, I suggest they sever all contact with US Armed Forces and US government security services in relation to security and terror protection.
Why? Because nearly every United States government organization, particularly law enforcement, anti-terror, intelligence services and virtually all branches of military have an office in Tel Aviv, Haifa, Jerusalem (the Capital of Israel), and in unnamed locations (for this article), in Israel. And, have been training in war games, counter-terrorism and exchanging vital terror threat and terrorist actively for decades to save USA and US citizens.
Second, refuse all life-saving medical operations, products and medications as many, many are Israeli made or invented. Some resident doctors might be Israeli too as Israel has world renown doctors.
Third, eliminate your cell phone, computer or device which includes gaming, social networking, software, components and anti-virus. Israel is a major inventor, contributor, and an international hub of originality for TV programs, movies, music, animation, security and etc, etc related to all media mediums.
So, if you boycott Israel stop all entertainment in relation to TV, movies and music because there is a high probability that some, part or all of the related material is from Israel.
Undeniable fact, Israel has been a major factor in advances (or inventor) in medical, genetics, optics, engineering, electronics, agriculture, solar energy, electric cars, cell phone, computer devices and radiation space suit advances. Israel is a medical, science, technology, and entertainment powerhouse.
But, one of Israel’s greatest gifts (one of many) is humanitarian organizations like Save A Child’s Heart which has treated thousands of children suffering from congenital and rheumatic heart disease in over 40 countries (including from the Palestinian Authority, Jordan, Iraq & Morocco).
Furthermore, if you’re a God-fearing individual or call yourself a Christian, as I am, then you’d better start reading Bible scripture.
Don’t think that Replacement theology which is also referred to as Supersessionism will save you.
There are loads of verses clearly explaining God’s promise to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, Jacob also known as Israel, and the promise of a New Covenant to Israel (Jacob) in the latter days. We could spend days and weeks on scripture but look for it yourself as you will stand alone and answer at the Judgment Seat of Christ where He is Lamb turned Lion.
Remember in the end times Jesus does not return to save Durham, Carolina. He intercedes when the armies of the world surround Jerusalem and the elect there. What’s more, it’s the New Jerusalem for the ‘saved,’ not ‘New Durham,’ Carolina.
Scripture supports Israel’s unique place with God based on the description of New Jerusalem in Revelation 21:12. The New Jerusalem, which God brings down from heaven, has 12 gates and twelve foundations. The twelve gates have the names of the 12 tribes of the children of Israel (Jacob), which is Reuben, Simeon, Levy, Judah, Issachar, Zebulon, Dan, Naphtali, Gad, Asher, Joseph (sometimes listed as his sons Ephraim and Manasseh) and Benjamin. The foundations have the names of the 12 apostles who are also Jewish. Peter, Andrew, James, John, Philip, Bartholomew, Thomas, Matthew, James the younger, Thaddaeus, Simon the Zealot, and Matthias (who replaced the traitor Judas Iscariot).
It is also imperative to mention that in Revelation the Lord’s chosen 144,000 are exclusively from the tribes of Israel (Revelation 7:4-8, Revelation 14:1-5). No gentile is included.
Moreover, there is a possibility there will be Israelites sitting on the Lord’s left and right of his throne because there are many mentioned in the Bible in addition to his disciples thus it would be logical to assume that the Israelite elders on the Lord’s left and right might have influence on sentencing.
Therefore, it is my advice for any God-fearing person and Christian to be very wary what you do or say against Israel and the Jewish Israelis.
As for the others who don’t believe or treat scripture as nonsense; use logic then. Israel is world famous for medical, security, technology and democracy.
Consequently, chose your friends and enemies carefully and stop this silly, ban/boycott nonsense.
Or, have some respectability and guts and go all the way and boycott everything listed relating to Israel.
