Why is Israel the most hated nation in history? This is not just a recently-observed or Muslim-inspired hatred. Anti-Semitism has been rampant for centuries â virulent anti-Semitism of the Third Reich (Hitlerâs Holocaust) to the modern-day radical Islamist. But why does Israel generate such a visceral response? There is no structured hatred against any Arabic nations that I am aware of. To my knowledge, no African, European or Asian nation is so marked for destruction. So why Israel? Massive armies have marched and powerful intrigues have been introduced against her. In the fifth century BC, Mordecai and Esther appeared on historyâs stage to save the Jewish nation when âHaman sought to destroy all the Jews that were throughout the whole kingdom of Xerxes, even the people of Mordecaiâ (Esther 3:6). Today, substitute almost any radical Islamic leader for Haman, and discover that the goal is identical: the total destruction of the Jewish state. Since Abraham, there have been almost incessant attempts from every quarter to destroy his progeny. In the mid-1800s, the Queen of England asked Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli for proof of the existence of God. âWhat is there to prove the existence of God, Benjamin?â she asked. His response was simply, âThe Jew, Your Majesty.â A simple answer on the surface, but profound in its implications. As a minuscule Israel on a map seems to point like a dagger at the heart of radical Islam, the Jew points at the heart of every human being hostile to the concept of God. Man âscientificallyâ explains away the Creation, and we alter history to explain away the Exodus. We can dispute almost every evidence of Godâs existence, except one: the Jew. In spite of every effort toward their deliberate extermination, from Haman to Hitler, the Jewish nation remains. The real war against Israel is not religious, economic or even territorial. It is spiritual.The following is an excerpt from an email to a person of influence, and copied to me, by the head of a media/booking agency:
âYouTube just pulled down this video due to âhateâ speech; what is your opinion on this? It is a video column by Ben Kinchlow, former co-host of âThe 700 Club.â Ben is well respected and not a hater. âNonetheless, YouTube says that the âYouTube Communityâ has deemed this video to be âhate speechâ and is counting this as one blow against me and can take down my entire YouTube site if I have one or two more âinfractions.â âWhat on earth is wrong with this text? What is my recourse, if any? You helped get [redacted] page back up and I thought you might be able to shed some light here. âThis video had been up for more than one year, yet suddenly they receive a complaint and take it down.âYou read the article. You be the judge. You answer the question posed by my friend, âWhat on earth is wrong with this text?â Not a paradox? No assault on Israelâs right to exist? I rest my case.
