If you had any questions before about Isreal, they have been answered

In my limited reading about the last days and the battle of Armageddon, I had read that all nations would gather against Israel, and that at the last minute, the lord would come and deliver them. Because of this scriptural understanding, I had always, at least in the back of my mind, had support or at least sympathy for Israel.

My question has always been "What would make the world come up against Isreal?"

Well, I think that question has been answered. Granted, I don't think that the time for the second coming is that close. There are far too many things to happen, but what is happening between Isreal and Hezbullah right now makes me wonder what is in the future for Isreal.

The Israeli justice minister Haim Ramon announced on Israeli army radio Thursday that "all those in south Lebanon are terrorists who are related in some way to Hezbullah."


Apparently though, on Israel’s list of terrorists are children. Sunday morning they bombed a building that housed sleeping civilians, mostly children. Of the 54 deaths, most of them were children.

Why didn't they evacuate the area? Why didn't they leave; partly because Isreal is blowing up many of the vehicles that are leaving? What exactly do they expect the refugees to do?


Well, if the world teams up against Isreal at this point, I can hardly blame them. It also saddens me that the U.S. isn't doing much to help bring about a cease-fire. More and more innocents are dying while we wait for a cease-fire that will be "permanent" and "lasting". I personally don't understand why a temporary cease-fire will be detrimental to a long term resolution.
