Adopting A Failed Status Quo - How Does Israel Survive Without Sovereignty

Reader comment on item: The Key Issue of Hamas vs. Israel

Submitted by M Tovey (United States), May 27, 2021 at 10:38

The State of Israel, even before its reborn status when the Balfour declaration intimated its return to nationhood, was destined by the Tanakh to achieve that return. The Prophet Isaiah wrote this:
صَوْتُ ضَجِيجٍ مِنَ الْمَدِينَةِ. صَوْتٌ مِنَ الْهَيْكَلِ. صَوْتُ الرَّبِّ مُجَازِياً أَعْدَاءَهُ
The 'Palestinian' cause has been debated and fought over for more than a hundred years in this modern age; and why? Hear what the latest cause was for the latest rocket assault; they fight for the mount when they should seek for its peace.
Within the lifetime of this observer, friends of the Jewish people have struggled in giving them a place in the world in which they cold live in peace; and yet, the attitude of the multiplicities of empires and nations they are not accorded peace. To the contrary, of all the national entities that have ever existed they are targeted and, to hear the Iranian Islamic Regime's revolutionaries of empire, they are to be eliminated. How does any rational national entity adopt such an antagonistic attitude of darkened vision unless it is derived from the very evil it worships? Then they agitate their proxies Hamas to do the dirty work, holding up Arab children as a shield for their evil.
Concessions to that is what Israel faces. The Prophet Isaiah tells the matter at hand: 'Palestine' does not inherit the land: he writes in the final chapters that Israel will go through the chastisements until they call upon the Name of the LORD, HaShem, and He will deliver.
Israel cannot give up; theirs is the victory; yet it is not won by their efforts, but by the failure of the efforts of others. Israel's sovereignty is eternally based; it always has been, will forever be.
Baruch HaShem Adonai ......
