Gaza: MY eyes have been opened

Reader comment on item: The Forcible Removal of Israelis from Gaza

Submitted by Jerry Driver (United States), Apr 12, 2005 at 21:51

THE WORD OF ADONAI IS AGAINST YOU,KENA'AN, LAND OF THE P'LISHTIM: "I WILL DESTROY YOU; NO ONE WILL BE LEFT." THE SEACOAST WILL BE REDUCED TO PASTURES, MEADOWS FOR SHEPHERDS, PENS FOR SHEEP; AND THE COAST WILL BELONG TO THE REMNANT OF THE HOUSE OF Y'HUDAH.
