Digging through all the revised history, the facts are the present day state of Israel began officially on May 14th 1948. Most of the land it has acquired, or more appropriately occupied has been through war. In fact in the weeks and months prior to declaring itself the state of Israel, they were already carrying out ethnic cleansing on a large scale. Prior to and after the “Nakba”, which means catastrophe in Arabic, up to 800,000 Arabs were displaced, or more appropriately, ethnically cleansed from the land, and are still barred from a “right to return” to their homes.
All but the most ardent modern day Israel supporters have to admit that Israel took the land and the houses of the Palestinian people by force, although claiming self defense, that’s still a thin cover for what actually happened, and indeed, to this day, this present incarnation of a physical Israel will not give up the land they stole during military operations.
In the 66 years of inhabiting Palestine the modern day Israeli's have acquired far more of Palestine than the original agreement's gave them, through always maintaining a self defense posture, and having the diplomatic cover of the United States of America. Here's a map detailing the ever expanding borders of this state:
International law states unequivocally that land conquered in a military action whether of the attacker or the nation attacked, cannot be kept by the victorious country. Thus, all further claims by the modern people calling themselves Israel of self defense, are fraudulent. You cannot defend land that was taken illegally from your enemy and claim you are defending yourself from further attacks. Numerous United Nation Resolutions condemning Israel for not relinquishing conquered land have been ignored, again, with the help of the United States of America, which being a permanent member of the Security Council can and does block Israel from the consequences of defying international law.
If you are a free thinking and rational person you would have to ask yourself why does America do this? There are numerous reasons for this, let's start with the beginning of the official U.S. of A.'s actions concerning the modern political state of Israel. On May 14th, 1948 Harry Truman was the first leader of a country to recognize Israel's proclamation that it was now a state. Most of the people in Truman's administration were against recognizing Israel, foreseeing clearly that this was going to begin, and actually had already become a bad idea, guaranteeing trouble and bloodshed and constant wars in the area, which was so vital to the world as an area rich with oil that would become an increasingly important commodity as the years went by.
President Truman's recognition of the political state of Israel, will, if the people of America are ever able to come out from under the yoke of their oppressor's, be seen as the beginning of the downfall of the United States. And one of the worst decisions ever made by an American President. And supporting “Israel's” foreign policy objectives have led to the economic collapse of America, fighting wars that were “good” for Israel and made no sense for the U.S., have bankrupted the nation, along with George W. Bush's tax breaks for the wealthiest.
Nearly the entire Truman cabinet opposed recognition:
the "wise men" who were simultaneously creating the great Truman foreign policy of the late 1940s -- among them (Secretary of State George) Marshall, James V. Forrestal, George F. Kennan, Robert Lovett, John J. McCloy, Paul Nitze and Dean Acheson. To overrule State would mean Truman taking on Marshall, whom he regarded as "the greatest living American," a daunting task for a very unpopular president.
And their reasons for denying recognition have rung true even today:
But to this day, many think that Marshall and Lovett were right on the merits and that domestic politics was the real reason for Truman's decision. Israel, they argue, has been nothing but trouble for the United States.
That's a throwaway line from the author (Richard Holbrooke) of the article linked above, who goes on to say Truman was right for reasons of “morality” (a ridiculous and morally offensive reason given the immoral activities of modern day Israel). But this author would say that if you thought about the difficulties the U.S. has encountered since then, and even more so now, the nearly permanent state of war that has persisted since then, the ruination of the U.S. economy, it's loss of stature and trust by the rest of the world, not just Arab nations, but all who plainly see the U.S. is not leading, but being led by the Israeli's, you really cannot deny that it was a massive mistake.
Many Americans have been deceived into thinking it is God's will for the “Jews” around the world to come back to the physical land of Israel, and that this is the fulfillment of prophecy. I have discussed these false beliefs in numerous past articles, please refer to the blog site http://perverted-christianity.blogspot.com for more in depth information. In this article I will simply say, it is not God's intention to restore a physical land of Israel, or an unbelieving people to it. In the Book of Hebrews it clearly states that the city or home we seek is not of the earth but the Lord Himself will bring it to us:
Heb 11:10 For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God.
Heb 11:14 For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country.
Heb 11:15 And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned.
Heb 11:16 But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.
Heb 12:22 But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels,
Heb 13:14 For here have we no continuing city, but we seek one to come.
Rev 21:1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
Rev 21:2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
Rev 21:3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.
Simple enough isn't it? Don't be deceived. This is the Israel to come, you won't find any direct promises like this concerning a physical Israel, and it applies to all. Just as every one of us need Jesus Christ to ever enter into the new Jerusalem to come.
So how does a person get to thinking that God would want to set up a new Israel by way of ethnic cleansing and genocide? Perhaps the answer lies in the way the United States of America was founded? There was a group of people here, had been for thousands of years, the Native Americans, falsely called Indians, because of the mistaken belief of the first Europeans that they were in India. The original inhabitants were slowly wiped out, genocided, ethnically cleansed. The vast majority of people in the U.S. thought it was God's will to do it, they called it “Manifest Destiny”, a grand name for slaughtering the people who lived on the land that they wanted. And the mostly eastern Europeans who have settled in Palestine feel the same way about what they call Israel. It's Aliyah, God wants them to slaughter all the Palestinians and possess the land. The religious book of the apostate “Jews”, the Talmud says if they don't live in Israel they have no God, i.e. having missed their Messiah, they have made the land their God, and will do anything to get it and keep it. There is no Biblical compulsion to war for land in the New Covenant, but it isn't the first time a country was founded that way.
