Since the terrorist attacks on Israel on October 7 of this year, the level of anti-Semitism has drastically risen around the world. In Turkey, signs can be seen outside business establishments saying, “Jews not allowed.” The violence against Jews in Muslim countries is record high. In Germany, anti-semitism is up a scary 240%. In the United States, antisemitic incidents have risen by about 400%. London’s police are reporting a 14-fold increase in incidents of antisemitism. There have been 414 arrests in France in connection to anti-Semitism.
Jews currently have nowhere safe to turn except for one place – Israel.
Israel has report that more than 2,600 Jews have chosen to move to Israel over the last two months and the number continues to increase. Hamas is launching rockets into Israel almost every day and the entire Middle East is threatening acts of violence against Israel if they do not immediately halt their attacks against the terrorist organization, Hamas, yet sadly it still remains the safest place in the world to be a Jew.
After the extermination of 6 million Jews in WWII, the world vowed, “Never Again.” Israel was founded on this principle, knowing that Jews cannot rely on any other nation to protect them. If they are to survive they will have to rely on God and protect themselves.
Jews are currently engaged in a life or death struggle with Hamas, because of the choice of the latter.
During this time however, one thing has become clear. When bigotry, intolerance, ignorance and violence turns against the People of God, Israel stands as a beacon for them to come home.
