First, permit me to apologize for not seeing this response earlier, for if I had, there would have been no delay.

Aliyah is a peculiarly Jewish observance, of the diaspora following through with a recognition of a scriptural command, that of returning according to the prophets. From a strictly Biblical observance of an evangelical sort, this believer does NOT tie a formed connection of the prophetical events we are seeing fulfilled today to a specific occurrence many others of the Christian persuasion hold to. In fact, many mainstream Christian religious beliefs tie the necessity of the Jewish people to the land as a requisite to the return of Yeshua HaMashiach. I am not so convinced. The 'harpazo,' the removal of the Church before the tribulation has no such scriptural connection on the surface of it all: but all of Judaica needs to be made aware of the crisis mode of not understanding how all things for them are working according to the song of Moses in the Debarim.

When I was a much younger person, my understanding of anti-Semitism was brought to light definitively in the stories of the Holocaust, the Anne Frank story being one of millions, MILLIONS. The answer is very simple: people hated JEWS!

Now you would like to make a comparison about Esther and Mordechai (Her UNCLE) and the circumstances of the Purim. Read the story: it tells the reason why, because Haman hated the JEWS! He conned the king to give him and his co-conspirators permission to kill the JEWS. The Purim is not a story of purely of getting some kind of vengeance, but it is a story of deliverance by Almighty God. Know this and you will understand the story correctly and not believe the lies.

Lastly, while it is certain Sadat was not a Christian believer and that he did not voluntarily follow the commands of Yeshua, Almighty God IS in control, and by His power things worked according to the will of Yeshua HaMashiach. Acceptance of the will of Yeshua HaMashiach and His deliverance of me from my sins is the reason I believe that whatever Yeshua HaMashiach says needs to happen, my faith is set in that promise and I can be sure of it until eternity.

So there is the choice: seek Yeshua HaMashiach and His will in your life; or continue in a fruitless search for reasons why Israel will be left standing for the Jewish nation to return to, and never realizing that the Hebrew Holy Bible was right all along and humanity without Yeshua HaMashiach will never be able to understand why.
