As a born-again Christian I find it absolutely appalling that so many Christians are anti-Semitic.

While most Christians will quickly deny they are anti-Semitic, their day-to-day rhetoric conveys a totally different story. In fact, it’s common to hear comments about how the Jews have undue influence on the world’s finances, which is utterly ridiculous (and I am not referring to George Soros). But the most egregious statements come from those Christians who claim Israel is occupying Arab land and mistreating Palestinians.

And of course such comments are not from just a few on the left, but represent formal positions held by Christians for Middle East Peace (CMEP), an organization of 24 members to include the Presbyterian USA and United Methodist denominations, among others.

While CMEP claims to be a Christian organization, its policies certainly fly in the face of orthodox Christian values.

First, it rejects Israel’s claim to any of the lands it captured during the 1967 war. CMEP’s position is that Israel only has a right to the territory it ended up with after the 1948 war, as though those boundaries were established as final, whereas nothing could be further from the truth.

Prior to the 1948 war, the United Nations (UN) had proposed a two-state solution; a State for Israel and a state for the Palestinians. However, prior to any boundaries being established, the Arab states totally rejected the UN plan and refused to recognize Israel’s right to exist. In other words, they rejected to the Jews owning any land.

Thinking they could quickly solve their problem by driving the Jews out of the area, the Arab states declared war against the Jews and proceeded to carry out their plan. But God was on the side of His chosen people; the Jews defeated the Arabs, although it was well into the following year (1949) when a cease fire was implemented.

And that is how the so-called 1948 borders came to be, even though no actual state borders have to this day been established, not even by the UN. So, the idea that where the Jews ended up geographically after the 1948 war should be deemed its official state boundary is unfounded in both principal and fact. Yet, that is the position held by many people today, and is the official position of CMEP.

Now regarding those displaced, Israel’s position was that the Palestinians would be allowed to resettle in the to-be-determined Palestinian state, just as all displaced Jews plus those residing in Arab states, some 820,000, were allowed to resettle in the Jewish state.

But that was not good enough for the Arabs. What they wanted then, and what most want today is the destruction of the state of Israel and all such lands given to the Arabs.

And by the way, none of the 725,000 Palestinians were allowed to resettle in any Arab state. Instead, with total annihilation of all Jews and confiscation of all Jewish lands their sole agenda, the Arab states chose to make the plight of the Palestinians a poster child for their trumped-up charges against Israel.

What is unfortunate is that some Christians have chosen to accept the words of their enemy rather than take time to research the truth. And sadly the CMEP falls into this category. We must not forget that an enemy of the Jew is an enemy of Christianity, and an enemy of God. “And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed” (Gen 12:3).

Additionally, the CMEP position is that Israel is an oppressive occupier and the Palestinians are victims of Israeli mistreatment. What is so striking is that even though they claim to be a Christian organization, their actions are a repudiation of the Christian Bible.

To hold such position, they must reject the Abrahamic Covenant; they must reject Israel’s right to territory given to it by God. So, just what does the Bible say about that land?

“In the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates: 19 The Kenites, and the Kenizzites, and the Kadmonites, 20 And the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Rephaims, 21 And the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Girgashites, and the Jebusites (Gen 15:18-21).From the wilderness and this Lebanon even unto the great river, the river Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and unto the great sea toward the going down of the sun, shall be your coast (Josh 1:4).”

Now to put this in perspective, God gave Israel all of the land from the Nile River in Egypt to Lebanon (North to South) and from the Mediterranean Sea to the Euphrates River (East and West).

Therefore, God promised Israel all the land it held immediately after the 1967 war, and more.

Specifically, the land God gave Israel not only included all it holds today, but a large portion of eastern Egypt, much of northern Saudi Arabia, the western half of Iraq, all of Jordan and Lebanon, and more than half of Syria.

Conversely, if the CMEP position has merit, how do they reconcile the territory held by the state of Israel during the reigns of David and Solomon? The simple answer is that they cannot. The Abrahamic Covenant was both unconditional and perpetual, beginning from the time of Joshua when it was first conquered to the end of the Millennium.

Therefore, while misinformed Christians claim Israel is occupying Palestinian or Arab land, the truth is that Arabs are occupying more Jewish land today than the tiny state of Israel. That being a fact, can you just imagine the international uproar should Israel attempt to recover that territory? But in time it will happen!

So, why are so many Christians anti-Semitic? It is because of their ignorance of God’s Word. Instead of seeking the truth which means to “study,” they choose to rely upon those who intentionally replace facts with falsehood.

Christianity is under attack by Marxism. And Marxism’s goal is to pull Christianity out by its roots. And that can only be accomplished by first destroying Israel and the Jews. And less we forget, Jesus Christ was a Jew!
