ISRAEL COMMITTED 'TERRIBLE ATROCITIES,'
By Rev. Ted Pike
21 May 08
Grant R. Jeffrey is an enormously popular evangelical Bible prophecy
teacher featured on the globe-spanning Trinity Broadcasting TV network.
His program “Bible Prophecy Revealed” reaches an estimated
I was surprised by last week’s broadcast (May 15). Jeffrey said that in
the 1948 conflict between Israel and the Arabs, there were “terrible atrocities
on both sides.”
What? Since when has Israel -- whom most evangelicals believe can virtually do
no wrong -- become guilty of atrocities? The Arabs, yes. But these evangelicals
would reply, “Israel was created by divine intervention – not atrocities!”
I believe the barrage of new arguments for a more Biblical view of Israel (largely
provided by the National Prayer Network) is beginning to penetrate. Perhaps Jeffrey's
listeners have sent him articles from truthtellers.org, such as “Israel:
Founded on Terror.” This article details the sordid record of Israel’s “terrible
atrocities” against the Palestinians. These include the massacres of Deir
Yassin, Dawayma, Kibya, Kfar Kassem, Lebanon, etc.
Jeffrey: God Loves Arabs
Jeffrey also said, “God loves the Arabs just as much as He
loves the Jews.”
You might pry that statement from some evangelical prophecy teachers. But I
have never heard it volunteered on international Christian TV. John Hagee,
Jerry Falwell, etc., always stress that God has “special love” for
Jews, the “apple of His eye.” In strongly pro-Israel churches,
Arab “donkey-drivers and towel-heads” are unofficially considered
inferior to Jews in God’s sight.
Are we finally seeing hairline cracks in the previously impregnable wall of
evangelical approval of Israel? Since publication of my book Israel:
Our Duty… Our
Dilemma in 1984, I have sent a simple, Biblical message to the church. I’ve
said God has a wonderful destiny for a repentant remnant of Jews; this destiny
will be revealed at Christ’s second coming. But meanwhile, historic Judaism
is deeply apostate and anti-Christian. Israel was founded in defiance of God’s
law, which says only obedient Jews can reoccupy Palestine; it is a counterfeit,
not the true obedient return prophesied hundreds of times in the Old Testament.
Israel Improving? ”)
For 24 years, the National Prayer Network has shot missiles of Biblical
warning and reality into the seemingly impenetrable wall of Christian
Now a prominent, highly respected Christian Zionist has made significant
concessions to our message. I believe more cracks can develop in
the evangelical wall. Unfortunately, such cracks may have to be
hastened through persecution under state hate laws, inspired by
the Jewish Anti-Defamation League. Ultimately, Revelation suggests
that when Christians have suffered bitterly under the “Great
Harlot,” Israel, they will at last comprehend the full hatred of Talmudic
Judaism against them. (Rev. 18:4-7)
What if Christians could realize the truth before then? What if a significant
percent of America's 70 million evangelicals became aware of the threat of
anti-Christian Jewish activism and publicly opposed it? America could well
postpone establishment of the Jewish one-world order, Babylon the Great. (See, "Israel:
On the Way to Empire in the Middle East" ) Effective resistance could
last for at least a generation or as long as such faith in God and love of
It is a frightful reality that, today, the will of the "synagogue of Satan" (Rev.
3:9) (that Christ-rejecting Jews are unconditionally chosen by God) has become
the will of most Christians. Yet the Zionist mortar that has bound evangelicals
with Israel and her injustices can be made to crumble.
I pray it will, before it is too late.
