Today 4 more “Hamas militants” were killed by Israeli Defense Forces in Gaza. We hear nothing about the huge humanitarian disaster unfolding under the world’s nose as Israel rations fuel to Gaza as a form of collective punishment or as a way of provoking a desperate people to desperate measures, insuring that an escalation will occur.
The BBC article casually states that hospitals are nearly running out of fuel for vital operations. People in need of medical care die while waiting at border crossings. How long will the world ignore this crisis and condemn Israel for their murder of countless Palestinians? How long will life be sucked out of Gaza while the world passes by and notices it not? I long for the day when the children of Abraham learn to do the works of Abraham. Christ berated the Pharisees for claiming to be the seed of Abraham, while they didn’t do the works of Abraham. Abraham was a man of great compassion, a man of peace who tried to save as many as possible from destruction at Sodom and Gommorah. He was a man who cared not for worldly goods and loved his fellow man and did good to all no matter how he was mistreated. Instead, the children of the flesh of Abraham in Israel follow the prescribed actions given them by Isaiah in Isaiah 59 saying:
2 But your iniquities have aseparated between you and your God, and your bsins chave hid his face from you, that he will not dhear. 3 For your hands are defiled with ablood, and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken lies, your tongue hath muttered perverseness. 4 None calleth for justice, nor any pleadeth for truth: they atrust in vanity, and speak lies; they conceive bmischief, and bring forth iniquity. 5 They hatch cockatrice’ eggs, and weave the spider’s web: he that eateth of their eggs dieth, and that which is crushed breaketh out into a viper. 6 Their webs shall not become garments, neither shall they cover themselves with their works: their works are works of iniquity, and the act of violence is in their hands. 7 Their feet arun to bevil, and they make chaste to dshed innocent blood: their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; wasting and destruction are in their paths. 8 The way of apeace they know not; and there is no bjudgment in their goings: they have made them ccrooked paths: whosoever goeth therein shall not know peace.
