The red line

The Hamas, Islamic Jihad and Hezbollah attack on Israeli citizens is a great red line. On one side of the line are those who see the pure evil in the brutal barbarism of the Islamist who vow to eliminate Israel from the face of the earth. On the other side are those who support the actions of the terrorist aggressors. Be assured, there is no moral middle ground. There is no justification. There is no “Yeah, but…” What has been done to Israelis is morally wrong. Sadly, there are those around the world marching and protesting on behalf of the “Palestinians,” under the false and historically inaccurate assumption that these indigenous Arabs are somehow the victims of Israeli occupation of “Palestine.” But it’s about hate.

The red line becomes even brighter when reports come in that these sub-human barbarians dismembered babies in front of their parents before killing the parents; that they beheaded babies; that they not only killed citizens, but dismembered them. It is wicked hateful bloodlust. Supporters of these immoral acts try to say that it is Israeli propaganda. No. It was the terrorists themselves that recorded their atrocities on cell phones and posted their deeds online, bragging about what they had accomplished in the name of “allah.” Imagine being a family member and seeing a young, stripped, contorted dead body in the back of a pickup truck with these terrorists’ legs propped up on it, and upon a closer look, it’s your daughter.

The red line becomes brighter now when Israeli leaders declare war and begin rooting out these satanic allah animals. The evil side claims the Israelis have killed children in their retaliation. They claim war crimes have been committed by the Israelis. They call for a cease fire in the name of humanitarianism. And those in the news media and leaders from around the world join in like a chorus of an evil chant. World sentiment begins to change and starts pointing the finger at Israel for its brutality. This has been the pattern. The evil animals attack, commit unthinkable atrocities, then hide behind schools and hospitals while calling for a ceasefire. It is in this manner that they get away with what they have done, and get the extra propaganda push that the Israelis are killing their women and children—something they use to gain support.

Christ said in Matthew 7:17-20, “Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Therefore by their fruits you will know them.” Cut down and thrown into the fire. That’s what may well happen to the residents evil of Gaza. Deservingly so. On which side of the red line do you stand? What do you say to those who say “hate doesn’t live here,” but support the “Palestinian” cause that drives Hamas and others like it to such evil? Those protesting in support of Hamas are in no uncertain terms advocating evil. It is the side of the red line where we know them by their fruits. Do we want to be remembered in history like those who supported the Holocaust? I think not. Act then appropriately.
