I Stand with Israel

I stand with Israel.

There are no words to describe the evil occurring in Israel right now. The raping, mutilating and kidnapping of Israeli women, children and elderly by Hamas. It is gut wrenching to see what our Israeli brothers and sisters are enduring right now.

But to be honest, my voice has no authority to speak to the atrocities and devastation. So I will share someone who does:

I’m sharing Ben Shapiro’s episode today for you to watch. For those who don’t know, he is a devout Jew, and was just in Israel on Friday: missing the attacks by only 12 hours.

And his words for and about his people are powerful. And I highly suggest you watch this graphic episode. And yes: watch. Because we need to see the violence, and not hide from the gruesome reality of it. We need to look it in the face so as to be moved to stand up to it. **I cannot embed the video because it has graphic, age-restricted footage from Israel in it, and WordPress does not allow that type of content, but here is the link: https://youtu.be/U-b5ZOEcLOM?si=kvIgcIvSNuLEfHgS

Let us pray for our Israeli brothers and sisters who are under attack in the Middle East. Let us pray for peace in the middle east and the protection of all those fighting and standing up against the evil of Hamas. And let us pray for Jews all across the globe who are hurting, fearful and have lost loved ones.

God bless America, and God bless Israel.

  1. Amen sister. Jesus, put Your Hand of peace, safety and protection on our Israeli brothers and sisters.

  2. Not to mention YouTube doesn’t want people seeing what’s going on over there; they’re pro-Hamas all the way.

  3. I have always sympathize with the Palestinians, but I have to stand with Israel on this one. It is obvious Hamas do not want peace. May God have mercy on their souls.

  4. Praying for Israel. Thanks for publicly speaking out on this topic. The real raw truth is also available from Behold Israel channel on telegram from Amir Tsarfati.

  5. Thank you for this. I am going to link to it, if that is OK. My kibbutz was invaded and people it appears have been abducted and murdered, so this is deeply personal for me!

  6. Please read the history of this issue before passing judgement.. 70+ years of oppression, inhumane conditions and treatment, indiscriminate violence against civilians without regard to age, torturing children in jails.. and a lot more.. is bound to result in explosion when the world chooses persistently to turn deaf to the continuous cries for help and justice

    • I have visited a Palestinian refugee camp, lived a five minute walk from Gaza.Lived among orthodox Jews in Jerusalem. People from my kibbutz have been abducted and murdered. I am 100 percent behind Israel

      • It would be utterly unrealistic and delusional to expect that someone who steals someone’s house, usurps his resources, tortures and kills that person’s family, would live in absolute peace and comfort. Had this been done to you over the course of tens of years, wouldn’t you have tried to get your rights back? They tried for decades to appeal to international law to stop the atrocities but no one listened, cared or done anything about it. What kind of peace is expected there?!

      • There used to be Palestinians working on our kibbutz in the 90s I would argue that terrorism has done absolutely nothing to improve the lives of Palestinians.

      • Ì understand you are distressed but this came across as a little too personal. Please let us both try to ensure that this does not become a forum for abuse in future.

  7. I’ve not commented but have followed you for years now. Mazal tov on your recent marriage! And thank you for always standing up for what is right, true and important: pro-life, the precious faith, and recovery. May G-d continue to bless you and Steven abundantly – and now for this.
    We live in the Galilee, about 1 1/2 – 2 hours from the madness. We are still numb with shock and have not had a moment to process this. I’ve lost friends. My friends have lost children. I watched as fathers donned uniforms and said goodbye to their young children and very pregnant wives. My husband and I prayed protection over our son who was called up to reserves at an undisclosed front line. (You can follow my daily updates at israeldreams.com). It’s worse than horrific here as we are told to prepare to stay in our safe rooms possibly without power for 72+ hours. Yet we remain strong and United with firm and unwavering faith in G-d.
    And I can’t thank you enough for speaking up for us now. I’ve You go, Girl!!! Love and prayers to you from the Holy Land

  8. It is horrific what I have been reading about from Israel. God still has a plan for Israel. When things escalate there, it causes me to wonder how close are we to Christ’s return

  9. It is important to pray for our enemies as well per the instruction of our Lord. This is not easy, and it does not mean we just lay back and let those enemies destroy us, but we must tread carefully with vengeance. This is Father’s domain.
    I pray earnestly with tears for Israel’s victims of the terrorists, but also FOR the terrorists. How better to stop their terror than for the Holy Spirit to open their blinded eyes and see that they are conversing with the devil!?
    ❤️&🙏, c.a.

  10. I totally abhor the violence perpetrated by Hamas but also the attacks on civilians in Gaza. The whole thing is messed up. Unless there’s a miracle, the actions of Hamas have set back any hopes for a just peace for many years.
    The Islamist aspect complicates things, but I am trying to see things from the point of view of ordinary Palestinians and Israelis who have been living with a situation of injustice brought about by the actions of the Zionist state of Israel. It’s all connected with how things have been since 1917, when The UK government and others decided (why on earth they had the right to, I don’t know) to carve up that part of the Middle East and reconstitute part of Palestine as a homeland solely for the Jewish people. (The Balfour Declaration).
    Ever since then, the rights and freedoms of the Palestinian people (whose homeland it had been prior to 1948) have been eroded. Much of the Christian world have blindly supported the State of Israel, and not understood the full picture, where for example Palestinians living in the West Bank and Gaza have very limited access to water, electricity, and other essentials, and have resticted freedom of movement which affects education, work and health care.
    The Palestinians living in the occupied territories and in Israel itself are not equal citizens with Israelis. Until Israel makes a just and lasting peace with the Palestinian people this conflict will continue.
    If you’re not sure about the truth of this, there is a small minority of Christian Palestinians who know the reality of how things are. Many of them are working for a just peace with a number of Christian organisations supporting the struggle for equality.
    For example, see the website of Bethlehem Bible College https://bethbc.edu/
    also Amos Trust https://www.amostrust.org/
    and Kairos Palestine https://www.kairospalestine.ps/

    Maybe there are some Christian people in the US as we have here in the UK who are surprised that there are Christian Palestinians. They need us to understand how life is for them, and give them the support they need. Grace and Peace. <

    • I have personal experience of Palestinians and Palestinian Christian s. Nonetheless I remember the bible tells us we should bless Abraham’s descendants. Most causes have used violence at one point or another. This has almost always tended to make matters worse for ordinary people.

      Israel is in a fight for its very survival right now. Israel managed to make the desert bloom. They are continually treated as a pariah state.
      Hamas appear to have done nothing to improve the lives of ordinary Palestinians.

  11. I stand with Palestine people who want return thair land but we want peaceful solutions for both people’s Israel and Palestine because civilians always the victims.

    • My friend reminded.me of Israel’s tiny size. I swear they could have 6 inches of land and some would still complain. I am assuming you are American. What would you have felt like if America had been told all about Afghanistan’s issues following 9/11. America enjoyed the total support of nearly the entire world following 9/11. Israel has suffered an equivalent loss. They need our support right now.

  12. I posted before, and basically I stand for what we read about in Psalm 85 … Mercy, Truth, Jutice and Peace – and for any one group of people. This is what the Lord requires of us.

  13. What defines the goal of the current war in Gaza?

    The over 200 kidnapped captives a clear priority. However Israel fights a regime change war. The total unconditional surrender of Hamas defines the Will of the People of Israel to achieve justice for the slaughter of some 1400 Israelis on October 7th. Just that simple.

  14. A Wee-Bit Irish Pro-Israel War-Time BBC-like Propaganda

    All goes well in this war by which Israel seeks the total unconditional surrender of Hamas. Followed up by a mass population transfer of 5th column Arabs in E. Jerusalem and Samaria to Gaza. From the River to the Sea, Israelis live Arab free.
