Over the weekend, Hamas terrorists at the Gaza Strip fired around 700 rockets towards Israel, killing four Israelis and wounding dozens others, according to the Jerusalem Post.
“Terror groups Hamas and Islamic jihad in Gaza have fired over 700 rockets at Israel since Friday, killing four Israelis and wounding dozens. Defiant Hamas and Islamic Jihad officials said on Sunday that they don’t rule out the possibility that the current round of fighting in the Gaza Strip could lead to an all-out war with Israel,” reported the Jerusalem Post.
Reuters reported: “The latest round of violence began [Thursday] when an Islamic Jihad sniper fired at Israeli troops, wounding two soldiers.” This is important to keep in mind and you’ll find out why in a moment.
Both Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib responded to this attack, but taking the side of the Islamic terrorists attacking Israel, unsurprisingly.
Tlaib tweeted in response to a tweet (which I will share in a moment) the following: “When will the world stop dehumanizing our Palestinian people who just want to be free? Headlines like this & framing it in this way just feeds into the continued lack of responsibility on Israel who unjustly oppress & target Palestinian children and families. #FreePalestine.”
Now, I have a number of things to say about this alone, but let’s first see what this headline is and what tweet she is responding to. The headline comes from the New York Times, ironically enough, considering their disgusting Anti-Semitic picture from about a week ago, and it reads: “Gaza Militants Fire 250 Rockets, and Israel Responds With Airstrikes.”
Really nothing wrong here, as it states some facts. However, Tlaib and the person she responded to have a problem with this headline and the framing of it, making it seem like it’s the terrorists’ fault… which it is. And yet, they have a problem with this. Why am I not surprised?
But that’s just the headline. What tweet was Tlaib responding to? This one: “This is a stunningly irresponsible and misleading headline. Israel shot dozens of unarmed Palestinian protestors in Gaza on Friday and killed 4 Palestinians, including two protesters, in Gaza before any projectiles were launched.”
This comes from a Twitter verified account (again, not surprised) that goes by the name of Yousef Munayyer. Obviously, a Muslim and one that sides against Israel (as most tend to do).
But that is where that Reuters report becomes important. Israel may have shot “unarmed Palestinian protesters” (doubt they were unarmed and they are not protesters but occupiers of a land that belongs to Israel, but I’ll get to that later), but if they did, it is out of retaliation against a Jihadi sniper shooting and wounding soldiers. Is Israel not allowed to retaliate against attacks? Are they supposed to kowtow to Muslim invaders?
In Tlaib’s, Omar’s and Yousef’s minds: yes, Israel should surrender to them.
Now, before I get to Omar’s tweet, I would like to dismantle Tlaib’s. First, the headline is a rather accurate one and places the blame on those who are to blame: the radical Islamic terrorists. The NYT won’t admit it themselves, neither would they dare say the words “radical Islamic terrorists”, but they at least have some basic understanding of who the aggressor here is and it’s not Israel (and this will likely be one of very few and far between times when I will actually compliment the New York Times). So the headline she is talking about does not dehumanize anyone, does not represent a sort of “lack of responsibility” on the part of Israel and does nothing except report the truth (again, a rarity for the NYT).
And second, notice the actual dual loyalty Tlaib demonstrates to have here. “Our Palestinian people”? Who is “our” in this situation, because it’s definitely not the United States. The U.S. supports Israel, not Muslim invaders. Tlaib is massively hypocritical in accusing Jewish American politicians of having dual loyalties to Israel and then proceeding to call Palestinians “our” people. They are not America’s people. They shouldn’t even be Tlaib’s people, but that is why I say she is the one with dual loyalties here.
Now, let’s look into Omar’s tweet:
“How many more protesters must be shot, rockets must be fired, and little kids must be killed until the endless cycle of violence ends? The status quo of occupation and humanitarian crisis in Gaza is unsustainable. Only real justice can bring about security and lasting peace.”
As some people on Twitter point out, this reads much like Hamas propaganda. She accuses Israel of occupying the Gaza Strip when in reality, it belongs to Israel.
Also, what is “real justice” in this scenario? Considering the side she is taking, of attacking Israel and their right to defend themselves against foreign invaders who wish to destroy them completely, I’m assuming “real justice” means the wiping out of Israel off the face of the Earth.
Again, she considers Israel to be occupying the Gaza Strip when it’s radical Muslims who are occupying the area. To her, “justice” is simply vengeance.
But here’s the thing, and I’m repeating myself: IT BELONGS TO ISRAEL! Muslims in the area are the ones making threats (and sometimes act on said threats) of attacking Jerusalem and completely destroying Israel, forcing them to either submit to Islam or be killed. But the Holy Land does NOT belong to Muslims. God did not promise Mohammed that land. He promised Abraham and his descendants that land.
And by descendants, He did not mean Abraham’s illegitimate child Ishmael, whom Muslims consider to be Abraham’s true first-born son and to whom they believe land belongs as his inheritance. According to Muslim exegesis, Sarah asked Abraham to marry Hagar so that they may have a child together, as Sarah was barren. But Abraham never married Hagar and Ishmael was not the son God promised to Abraham. Abraham was impatient with God as he waited decades for the promise to be fulfilled, getting older and older and his hopes diminishing with each passing year. He got impatient, as did Sarah, and they thought God would bring them a son through someone that is not Sarah.
They were mistaken, as years later, they would bear Isaac. Despite the fact that Sarah was barren and despite the fact that she was well beyond the age of child-rearing, God delivered to them the son that He promised them.
Genesis 21:9-13 shows us exactly what was intended out of both Isaac and Ishmael. After Isaac had been born and circumcised, “Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian, whom she had borne to Abraham, laughing. So she said to Abraham, ‘Cast out this slave woman with her son, for the son of this slave woman shall not be heir with my son Isaac.’ And the thing was very displeasing to Abraham on account of his son. But God said to Abraham, ‘Be not displeased because of the boy and because of your slave woman. Whatever Sarah says to you, do as she tells you, for through Isaac shall your offspring be named. And I will make a nation of the son of the slave woman also, because he is your offspring.’”
God considers Isaac to be Abraham’s heir, as we just read from the Scripture. Ishmael still had his place in history and God blessed him with a nation because he was also Abraham’s offspring, but to Isaac belongs the promise of the Lord made to Abraham. To Isaac belongs the inheritance of his father. To the Israelites, who come from the line of Isaac, belongs the Holy Land.
It is Ishmael’s offspring, the radical Muslims in Hamas, etc. who wish to see Israel destroyed and see themselves occupying the Holy Land. But it does not belong to them.
Do you see why I call the Muslims in Gaza “occupiers”? Because that is what they are. That is not to say they are not allowed to live there, but the land does not belong to them, which is what they claim. The land belongs squarely to Israel.
You can try and argue with me all day long about the issue, but ultimately, it is not me with whom you are arguing, but with the very word and promise of the Lord.
And between Omar, Tlaib and other Muslims who claim the land to be theirs and the Lord God Almighty, I’m not a big fan of the Muslims’ chances.
“Then the Lord appeared to Abram and said, ‘To your offspring I will give this land.’ So he built there an altar to the Lord, who appeared to him.”

Islam is the second largest and fastest growing religion in the world. While it’s clear that ISIS is the most brutal of its factions, the reality is that peaceful people around the globe are facing potential life-or-death situations based on how their governments respond to this global Muslim expansion.
The main focus at this point for peaceful governments is ISIS. And it’s not surprising, given the brutality of the terrorist organization. But let’s say that ISIS is defeated, the question becomes, is this fight ever going to end?
To answer that question, we need to understand Islam.
What is Islam’s ultimate goal?
The establishment of a worldwide Caliphate.
Before we go into the details, let me get something very important out of the way: many uninformed people think that Christianity and Islam are similar. Christians are waiting for the second coming of Jesus Christ so that He establishes His millennial Kingdom. Muslims are waiting for their messiah, Madhi, and his rule over a global caliphate based on sharia law.
What is the difference between the Christianity and Islam?
It’s massive. Let me explain...
You see, Muslims don’t worship Jesus as we all know, but most importantly (and please pay attention to this), Muslims do NOT look to Jesus as their SAVIOR. This is a critical difference – we are waiting for OUR SAVIOR. The key word is SAVIOR.
So, what are Muslims waiting for?
They are waiting for Madhi, the twelfth ruler since Muhammad, to establish a Worldwide CALIPHATE to DOMINATE all mankind under SHARIA LAW. They’re NOT waiting for a savior – Muslims are waiting for a DICTATOR.
ALL Muslims are waiting for this dictator. ALL OF THEM. Whether or not they’re terrorists is not the point – the point is what is ISLAM’S ULTIMATE GOAL? If you paid attention, now you know that their goal is the establishment of a KINGDOM OF TERROR!
The difference between Islamic terrorists and the rest of the Muslim world is the method they use to accomplish this goal. Terrorists think that the continued escalation of war and violence will lead to the final apocalypse and the appearing of their messiah. ‘Moderate’ Muslims think gradualism is a better approach. But make no mistake, terrorists or not, all Muslims want a worldwide caliphate. They agree on their common goal…
Just to give you a flavor of what gradualist Muslims think, let me share with you what the Muslim Brotherhood’s spiritual leader, Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, said in 2007:
‘The conquest of Rome, the conquest of Italy and Europe means that Islam will return to Europe once again. Must this conquest necessarily be through war? No, it is not necessary. There is such a thing as a peaceful conquest. The peaceful conquest has foundations in this religion. So I imagine that Islam will conquer Europe without using violence. It will do so through predication and ideology’.
Later on, in a 2012 interview he said something terrifying…’there will be no chopping off hands for the first five years’.
No chopping off hands for five years. Isn’t that a relief?
Terror now or terror after the conquest, the ultimate goal of every single Muslim is the global expansion of Islam and terror rule.
Now let me ask you this, do you still think Islam is a religion of peace like President Obama said?
Of course not.
And don’t let anyone tell you that Christians and Muslims are the same. We’re not the same. Our Kingdom is Heaven. Theirs is HELL.
Now let me ask you: do you think moderate Muslims are really moderate? They may claim to be, but are they?
Matthew 7:13-15: “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it. Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.

The Left hates Israel as much as Hamas does – and for the same reason.
As you know, Israelis live daily with the threat of terror hanging over their heads. The wildfires some news outlets are reporting these days are nothing but a twist to Islamic terror.
Israel is surrounded by enemies – Palestine, Syria, Lebanon, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Qatar are all enemies of the State of Israel. And on top of that, leftist US President Barack Hussein Obama recently gave Iran $100 BILLION of YOUR tax dollars to fund terrorism. Yes, my dear friend, the US is a sponsor of terrorism.
You may remember that Jews were slaves in Egypt for 400 years. Then they conquered the promised homeland, but they were continually attacked by hostile tribes. After that, the glory days of the United Kingdom of Israel and Judah ended and the Jews were beleaguered by wars with neighboring countries. In 722 BC the Assyrians conquered the northern part of Israel and deported its people. The Jews returned to their land seventy years later, but the Romans finally crushed them in AD 70 and they scattered around the world without a country for 1878 years..until the State of Israel was created in 1948.
You see, the Holocaust’s 6 million murders led the Jews to the creation of Israel – a piece of land where they would feel safe. After Hitler, the Jewish people had no choice but to return their promised land.
Israel’s enemies are holocaust deniers, but they promise a true holocaust if given the chance. They want to wipe the Jews off the face of the Earth – just like Hitler tried to, just like the Soviet Union tried to and just like every liberal tries to, now with fresh funds from our current President.
Islam hates Israel and wants to wipe it off the face of the earth for one simple reason:
The very existence of Israel proves the Bible is TRUE and the Koran is FALSE
If the Bible is true, then Israel IS the Promised Land and the Jews ARE God’s chosen people.
That leaves Islam with NO TRUE GOD. And that’s a huge problem for them – they’re indoctrinating their own people that Allah is the true God and Israel’s existence goes against that idea.
What Islam doesn't like is the idea that God made a covenant with Abraham:
Genesis 12: 1-3: Get out of your country, from your family and from your father’s house to a land that I will show you. I will make you a great nation. I will bless you and make your name great. And you shall be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you and I will curse him who curses you. And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.
This covenant is unconditional. God says He WILL make Abraham a great nation – He doesn’t say He ‘might’. God says He WILL bless Abraham – He doesn’t say He ‘is kind of thinking about it’. It’s always ‘will’ – ‘I will, I will, I will…curse him who curses you’
Islam is in the business of proving the Bible wrong – that’s why they behead Christians and Jews and that’s why they’re at war with Israel. If Genesis is real, then the rest of the Bible is real - and Jesus is real. And He's risen. That is a huge, huge problem for them...
So we know why Islam hates Israel. But how about the Left? Why does the Left hate Israel?
It’s the SAME reason: the VERY existence of Israel proves the BIBLE TO BE RIGHT!
The left doesn’t want anything to do with the Bible. The left wants to replace God with Government so anything that helps the cause of the Judeo-Christian beliefs is an ENEMY of the left.
Liberals and radical Islam have the SAME ENEMY: God.
My friend, the left wants to be your god – it wants to tell you how to live your life, what to think, what to feel. Liberals want to control you. But if you’re obedient to God, by definition, you’re not obedient to THEM. And that’s a problem for them.
In countries such as Cuba, North Korea or China, when you disobey the government, they simply put you to death if so these oppressive, leftists in government please. To the extent that you don’t FEAR the government because you have GOD on your side, that’s a problem for them.
Please, don’t believe the left’s lies. They don’t want Israel any more than Hamas wants Israel. And the reason is the same: they are at war with GOD and the battle is for YOUR MIND and for YOUR HEART.
Make sure you give your mind and your heart to the only one who loves you in this war: GOD.
Freddie Marinelli and Danielle Cross will bring you the TRUTH that the Left denies you. You'll live a more joyful and victorious life, because the Truth will set you free...
