http://www.barenakedislam.com/ “…at the current rate of immigration, in just 17 years nearly one in two people living in France will be Muslim. This is shocking for a country that has no Islamic tradition and had no Arab population as late as 1930. About 60 to 70 percent of all inmates in the country’s prison system are Muslim, according to Muslim leaders, sociologists and researchers, though Muslims make up only about 12 percent of the country’s population.
But Jews are the problem?”
Why would any nation want to rid itself of the Jew but keep those of the Islamic faith? Think about it; Israel is the only nation in the middle east that is at peace within politically and generally speaking socially. Yes, there is a uniqueness about the Jew. There are secular Jews which do not believe in God and then there are those that do believe in God and the Old Testament (Tanakh) and yet they both claim to be Jews! It seems wherever the Jew goes he prospers and the nation in which he lives also prospers. Generally wherever a Jewish community is formed in another nation it is a peaceful and law abiding community. The same cannot be said of those following Mohammad, the Koran and Islam. The Jew unlike the Muslim does not demand that the Jewish laws of the Old Testament be followed. The Jew does not riot and murder when the God of the Old Testament is profaned. Yet, it is the Jew that is hated and so often persecuted. Why? There are many reasons but only a couple will be given here.
1. The Jew claim their heritage back to Abraham to whom God said “And the LORD said, Shall I hide from Abraham that thing which I do;Seeing that Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him?” Genesis 18: 17, 18. This will be fulfilled literally in the future in that time known as the millennium BUT it is also true now in many ways. Earlier the Lord God had said “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.” Genesis 12:3. Now Islam claims Abraham as well BUT IT was to Abraham’s son Isaac (not Ishmael) that God said “But my covenant will I establish with Isaac, which Sarah shall bear unto thee at this set time in the next year.” Genesis 17: 21. The Jew is hated because they are God’s earthly people and the world HATES God! The Jewish people reminds the world that there is a God in heaven to whom they will someday give an account!!! Now this is not to say that all Jews or that the nation of Israel is right with God for that is not the case but someday there will be a real turning of the Jew as a nation to God through faith in Christ.
2. Because the Jew reminds the world of God the world seeks to totally wipe them off the face of the earth. There are numerous examples of this but we will give only two. The first is from the Bible. In Esther chapter 3 it tells us “wherefore Haman sought to destroy all the Jews that were throughout the whole kingdom of Ahasuerus”. This hatred for the Jew spans the ages from Haman to Hitler who said in Mein Kampf “…the personification of the devil as the symbol of all evil assumes the living shape of the Jew.”
Yes, the Jewish nation and the individual Jew are unique. In spite of the hatred and attempts to wipe them off the face of the earth they have survived for it is the God of heaven and earth that has said ” But thou, Israel, art my servant, Jacob whom I have chosen, the seed of Abraham my friend. 9 Thou whom I have taken from the ends of the earth, and called thee from the chief men thereof, and said unto thee, Thou art my servant; I have chosen thee, and not cast thee away. 10 Fear thou not; for I am with thee…” Isa 41:8 – 10a.
THE PROBLEM IS NOT THE JEW!
