Those poor, poor Palestinians. They’re just being victimized and pushed around by those bully occupiers of Israel (cue the violins).
That’s the false narrative that the mainstream outlets, college campuses, the United Nations (UN) and anti-Semites would have us believe. But as recently as Monday this week as well as two weeks ago (in addition to incidents in past years), those of us who are really paying attention have gotten glimpses of what’s really going on with the Palestinians. Israel isn’t the real enemy of Palestinians. Palestinian leaders are really the worst enemy of Palestinians. Truth be told, “Palestinian” is really a made-up term for Arabs displaced intentionally by Arabs of Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, and Egypt who were created to look like victims for the sake of fomenting hate for Israel, but that’s a history lesson for another time.
A secret UN report about the UN agency for Palestinian refugees known as the UNRWA revealed shocking truths about how they operate. The report was leaked to the Associated Press (AP) and released Monday, July 29. It revealed that Palestinian leaders in the UNRWA were abusing their positions of power in ways that hurt their own people. The leak comes at a time when the Trump administration cut all funding to the organization as the UNRWA tries to drum up financial support from others to make up for the loss. Leaders within UNRWA are accused of “sexual misconduct, nepotism, retaliation, discrimination and other abuses of authority … for personal gain, to suppress legitimate dissent, and to otherwise achieve their personal objectives, jeopardizing the credibility and interests of the agency.”
An investigation is currently underway to assess these actions that have allegedly contributed to “low morale, fear of retaliation — including through non-renewal of contracts — distrust, bullying, intimidation, and marginalization.” All of this hampers aid reaching the Palestinians who are supposed to be receiving it. The news also comes on the heels of stark revelations by Suhaib Yousef, the second son of Hamas leader Sheikh Yousef to defect from the terrorist organization and denounce their targeting of Israelis as well as their abuses toward other Palestinians. His brother Mosab Hassan Yousef was the first to defect after he claimed a conversion to Christianity, wrote a bestseller that exposed the abuses of the terrorist organization, and fled to the US for safety.
Despite all of these revelations about Palestinians doing great harm to other Palestinians, the UN once again passed two resolutions against Israel a few days ago. They condemned Israel as an abuser of Palestinian women and for allegedly doing Palestinians and Syrians economic harm in East Jerusalem. The resolutions are, of course, blatant lies. These falsehoods about Israel reminded me of the Lord’s end times prophecy in Micah 4. He warned Israel that “many nations” would target them because those anti-Semitic people have no knowledge of the Lord’s will or his plans for God’s remnant within the physical nation of Israel. Jehovah promised them they would ultimately be victorious over such people. It’s also a parallel prophecy that can be applied to God’s spiritual Zion–the body of Christ. Here are those prescient words:
11 Now also many nations are gathered against thee, that say, Let her be defiled, and let our eye look upon [target] Zion.
12 But they know not the thoughts of the Lord, neither understand they his counsel: for he shall gather them as the sheaves into the floor.
13 Arise and thresh, O daughter of Zion: for I will make thine horn iron, and I will make thy hoofs brass: and thou shalt beat in pieces many people: and I will consecrate their gain unto the Lord, and their substance unto the Lord of the whole earth. Micah 4
This is such a soothing reminder that all who seek to destroy the true Jews in Israel who are part of his church and wish to destroy the Gentiles in his church are those who will be annihilated in the end.
