More Gauntlets Against Peace as Changes Have Thwarted the Process

Reader comment on item: Israel's Policy Should Be Victory
in response to reader comment: Continuing Question - Do True Adherents of Quran Really Want Change?

Submitted by M Tovey (United States), Jun 19, 2021 at 10:24

Peace for Israel is now more distant in view than it has been in quite a while as it is seen the malicious behavior of many to the Jewish State, even the patronizing nod 'that Israel has the right to defend herself' in the up and coming onslaughts being planned and threatened from just about everywhere. Do not be mislead as to how quickly after the American 46th Administrative Chief Executive displayed 'resolve' on the G7 world stage, that the new leader of the Iranian Islamic Regime was heartily and very quickly acknowledged and congratulated for the 'victory' bestowed by Khamenei in apparent successorship.
Now, where is the hope of victory; where is the validation of the petition of praying or the peace of Jerusalem in Psalm 122, especially at verse :6? How does one challenge the interference of the Quran now? There is an answer, if one knows where to look and wants to understand. Look at the Psalms of ascent; this time we'll look at Psalm 120. We read:

تَرْنِيمَةٌ لِلصُّعُودِ إلَى الهَيْكَل.
120 فِي ضِيقِي دَعَوتُ اللهَ، فَاسْتَجَابَ لِي.
2 مِنَ النَّاسِ الكَاذِبِينَ المُخَادِعِينَ
نَجِّنِي، يَا اللهُ.
3 أيُّهَا الكَاذِبُونَ المُخَادِعُونَ،
مَاذَا سَتَرْبَحُونَ مِنَ الكَذِبِ؟
4 لَنْ تَرْبَحُوا غَيْرَ سِهَامٍ حَادَّةٍ
وَجَمرَاتٍ حَامِيَةٍ.
5 وَيْلٌ لِي! فَانَا بَيْنَكُمْ كَالغَرِيبِ السَّاكِنِ فِي مَاشِكَ
أوْ فِي الخِيَامِ فِي صَحرَاءِ قِيدَارَ.
6 طَالَتْ سُكنَايَ
بَيْنَ أعْدَاءِ السَّلَامِ.
7 إلَى السَّلَامِ أدعُو،
أمَّا هُمْ فَيُنَادُونَ بِالحَرْبِ

What's our sense here? Is it that what we are witnessing is the frustration that swirls around the Temple Mount and the agitations of Israel merely desiring peace and the agents of all that hate Israel can not stand the idea of letting her have peace. This is shown in Arabic to press for a common understanding, but realize that in its original tongue, it is a prayer to the Eternal Sovereign that seeks a people to respond, and note the circumstances of its application: these are prayers meant to be in supplication to the Defender of Zion; that when Yeshua was ministering on the Temple Mount, these prayers were offered as they mounted the steps we still can see to today on the south side.
Commencing from Psalm 120, read the following Psalms and realize, they are as prophetic as anything written, like Isaiah; or even more problematic for the rages of empires such as Elam, Meshech as found in Ezekiel. It has become that obvious.
Repeating the question, do the adherents of the Quran (like this in the Knesset) really want that kind of change? Do they really want to stand in the way of Israel finally achieving peace?
