Remember: Before Israel was Declared a Democracy - It IS a Theocracy

Reader comment on item: Egypt's Sham Election
in response to reader comment: Israel as a democracy example

And here I thought there was more discernment from someone who attempts to be a Biblical critic; and completely misses the central core of Biblical teaching. You jump almost immediately; no completely to Israel at the mention of Egypt; and you do not know why it is Biblical to do so, do you?

Look at Gaza. Under Israeli control, were the 'Palestinians' there better off then or now under Hamas rule?

But you take issue with Israel as a democracy and maybe it takes a proper definition of democracy to observe Israel's government versus, say Egypt's military government under the control of the Muslim Brotherhood? Or how about Syria? How's that working for Bashar al-Assad?

You cannot steal that which is already yours. And if you desire to blame anyone for placing Israel back into their ancient homeland, would you blame the United Nations? How about the United States, when Harry Truman declared the United States support for Israel – is that a reason for blame?

You inflict the word 'Zionist' as an epithet; and well you should for your inflammatory feeling against Israel. But if you cannot tell who put Israel back into the land, you'll never understand why Israel is there, in the first place, second place, and in place of the other pretenders to the land.

You say the timers are changing; and a different story? If you had really understood who Jesus Christ is, you would know that everything you see happening today is going according to the plan outlined by Jesus Christ; and yes indeed, the Promise of Almighty God, OF THE BIBLE, will prevail!!!! After all, Jesus Christ said it would!
