Another Palestinian “Day of Rage” but the Quest for “Peace” Continues

Palestinians in the West Bank have called for yet another “Day of Rage”:

A day after Israeli security forces killed at least two protesters amid a frenzied eruption of anger over the fatal shelling of a United Nations school, Palestinian leaders called for a “day of rage” Friday in the West Bank.

The call for a massive follow-up to what were already some of the largest West Bank protests in years comes as diplomats scrambled to find [a] cease-fire proposal that would satisfy mortal enemies Israel and Hamas and end more than two weeks of violence that has claimed more than 800 lives, most of them civilians.

Never mind that Hamas is using civilians as human shields so that Western media types can photograph Palestinians who are dead or dying; forget that Hamas stores its guns and ammunition in schools, hospitals, and other very public places; and ignore the fact that Hamas uses those public places to launch rockets and mortars at Israel.  Facts shouldn’t be allowed to get in the way of a heart wrenching story, or should they?

Calls are coming in from all over the world for a cease-fire between Hamas and Israel.  Barack Obama and John Kerry are leading the effort, but the fighting continues unabated.  Right now, it appears as though Hamas is winning the global public relations game, but this is the burning question: can there ever be peace between Israel and Hamas?

I don’t think so, and this is why: if you believe that a peace deal between Hamas and Israel will solve the problem, you must be basing your belief on feelings because there is no evidence to support it—nothing, nada, zip.  Regrettably, most people rely on feelings more than facts, and in the Middle East, that can get you killed in a hurry.

For instance, I feel like I should be able to walk through Arab Muslim “East” Jerusalem unmolested, but the facts tell me that I’m taking an unnecessary risk if I do.  How do I know?  I’ve done it and learned from my mistakes.  Only fools repeat their mistakes hoping for change.  Please pardon me: I didn’t intend to mock President Obama’s campaign slogan, or maybe I did.  You decide.

By the way, the difference between Hamas and Fatah is slight—very slight.  I’m suggesting that even if Israel reaches a deal with Hamas and it works, the problem still won’t be solved.  The only reason that Fatah is relatively quiet right now is because U.S. taxpayers are pouring millions of dollars a year into Fatah, and its leaders are getting filthy rich at U.S. taxpayers’ expense.

Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas is worth at least $100 million.  His predecessor, Yasser Arafat, was worth about $1.3 billion when he died according to Israeli intelligence estimates.  They didn’t accumulate that wealth by running falafel stands in Ramallah.  As quickly as we stop throwing money at the PA, Fatah will go back to being what it really is—another run-of-the-mill terrorist organization, just like Hamas.

Both the Hamas and Palestinian charters still call for Israel’s annihilation.  Negotiations over the years and the agreements reached have not changed them one iota.  That should tell us something.

This SnyderTalk editorial first appeared in American Thinker.

SnyderTalk Comment: In the end, it’s about Yahweh and His battle with Satan.  You won’t hear that in the mainstream media or almost any other place I’m sorry to say, but you will hear it in SnyderTalk because that’s the crux of the matter.




SnyderTalk Comment: The mainstream media won’t show you things like this or write about it because it supports Israel’s argument that Hamas abuses children by placing them in the line of fire with weapons in hand.  The next time you hear a Hamas spokesman say that Israel is killing of innocent women and children, remember this video.

“Palestinian” children are doing what “adults” tell them to do.  The children don’t know that the “adults” hope that they will die for the camera.  It’s just good PR from their perspective.  Their parents do know or they should know, and they allow it.  That’s shocking and that’s why you can’t judge Hamas and other so-called “Palestinians” by Western standards.  It makes no sense because they don’t see life the same way we do.  Theirs is a culture of death.  It’s very difficult for Western minds, maybe I should say civilized minds, to come to grips with the Arab Muslim way of thinking.

I need to say one more thing: “Palestinians” blame everyone except themselves for their predicament.  They especially like to blame Jews and more specifically, Israeli Jews.  I can’t stress the importance of that point enough.



13--Perspectives 2


Irwin Cotler: The UN, Hamas, and Alice in Wonderland—The UN Human Rights Council’s vote to launch an international inquiry into alleged Israeli war crimes in “Occupied Palestinian Territory” has a distinct quality of déjà-vu. Indeed, close to 40% of all UN Special Sessions have been condemnatory of Israel. But, it also has an Alice-in-Wonderland feel of “sentence first, verdict afterwards,” because the resolution – which focuses primarily on purported Israeli criminality – establishes a commission of inquiry while presupposing Israeli guilt. If precedent – such as the Goldstone Commission following the 2009 war between Hamas and Israel – be the guide, the inquiry will likely marginalize, if not sanitize, war crimes and crimes against humanity committed by Hamas. Indeed, the impunity enjoyed by Hamas in international forums has only encouraged it to continue flagrant violations of international humanitarian and criminal law.

Elliott Abrams: The EU’s Split Personality—In the course of the Gaza war, several key European leaders from Germany, France, and Britain have made tough, sensible statements supporting Israel’s right to defend itself and demanding a cease-fire that does not give in to Hamas demands. But not one of those countries could bring itself to vote against a foul and vicious resolution in the UN Human Rights Council this week. Every single European country that is a Council member abstained. This is a biased, one-sided, mendacious resolution. The word “Hamas” is not mentioned. The firing of thousands of rockets into Israel is not mentioned. The massive system of attack tunnels through which Hamas terrorists have entered Israel is not mentioned. The fact that Hamas hides weapons in UN schools is not mentioned. So Western democracies should not have abstained. Having worked in those UN precincts for many years, it seems obvious to me that one reason the EU can so rarely persuade the Arab group to amend its drafts enough to be acceptable is that the Arabs know the EU will never oppose them.

Irwin J. Mansdorf: Unseen Scars of War: Psychological Consequences of the Hamas Attacks on the Israeli Civilian Population—The violence of war can lead to significant stress and personal, social and occupational impairment, including longer-lasting post-traumatic effects (PTSD). Missile attacks against Israeli residents of Sderot have resulted in major PTSD symptoms and significant disruption to lives and functioning to large percentages of the population. The relative physical protection offered by effective shelters and the “Iron Dome” may not prevent longer-term consequences. Sderot serves as a model for what can be expected psychologically when attacks are sustained and the adjustments required become part of one’s forced routine.

Yishai Schwartz: Israel’s Operation in Gaza Is Morally Justified—This is a war about the future of morality in armed conflicts. For if Israel declines to fight, we live in a world where terror groups use their own civilians to bind the hands of those who try to fight morally. Make no mistake: The eyes of the world are on Hamas, and terrorist groups worldwide will learn from the tactics of Gazan terrorists and the world’s reaction. So if Israel allows Hamas’ human shields to defeat it now, we will all reap the results in the years to come.

Neri Zilber: Hamas Is Trying to Violently Extort the International Community—The continued rejection by Hamas of any peaceful settlement to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict was the original reason for the Israeli blockade around Gaza after the 2007 Hamas coup. Hamas is now trying to violently extort the international community, Egypt, the PA, and Israel to give it what it wants – an easing of the blockade, payment to its people – without offering anything in return. Broke, desperate, and with few remaining friends in the world outside of Turkey and Qatar, the only real leverage Hamas has is the threat of continuing this disastrous war of choice, and heaping more devastation onto the people of Gaza.

Douglas Murray: The Israel-Haters Are a Problem for Europe—Outside the Israeli Embassy in London, as in many capitals of Europe, demonstrators hold posters that say, “Stop the Holocaust in Gaza.” There is no “Holocaust” in Gaza. Anybody can see there is no similarity between the organized and systematic murder of 6 million Jews by the Nazis and the precision targeting of Hamas rocket sites. You cannot have a country in which the Muslim population doubles each decade (as in Britain) and radical Islamist groups teach young Muslims to make the Israel-Palestine issue their prime concern, and expect the result to have no impact. Even if they have British citizenship, it is hard to say that they are British in any recognizable sense of the term. If they were, they might think that a simple sense of fair play ought to dictate that a country being bombarded with missiles on a daily basis should have the right to respond by hitting the sites from which those missiles are fired. Europe’s Israel-haters are no real problem for Israel, but they are the greatest possible problem for Europe.

Lindy McDowell: Anti-Semitism in Northern Ireland—Tens of thousands die in Syria, Libya, Iraq, and Sudan and while this makes headlines, there is nothing on a par with the outcry against Israel. That nation moves to defend itself against the terror regime relentlessly pounding its cities with hundreds of rockets and once again it is the world’s Great Satan singled out for particular censure. Why? Israel is the world’s only Jewish state. What is Israel supposed to do under Hamas attack? Just sit back and take constant, unceasing bombardment with only the Iron Dome anti-missile system and pure luck sparing countless lives? We wouldn’t here. No other nation on earth would.

Boaz Bismuth: The Spirit of the Nation—Throughout the years the enemies have come and gone, and the wars have changed, yet one thing has remained the same: the spirit of our soldiers and the nation. Show me another army in which so many commanders are wounded first. Show me an army in which the medical staff must tie the wounded to the beds so they do not escape the hospital to return to the front. Show me another army that is an integral part of a nation. And show me another army that warns the other side and takes so many precautions, to the point of putting its own soldiers’ lives at risk.

Ron Ben-Yishai: Israel Must Grit Its Teeth and Keep Going in Gaza—Israel launched Operation Protective Edge to end the clear and present danger to the lives of Israelis posed by Hamas’ subterranean terrorist mechanism. This infrastructure was planned and built for one purpose only – to kill indiscriminately, kidnap hostages and bring the State of Israel to its knees (like with Gilad Shalit) and worse. Even the threat of rocket fire is not negligible, despite the fact that Iron Dome has created an illusion of security.

Melanie Phillips: Israel Abandoned—Just imagine if the Scots had for years been firing at England volleys of rockets that were now putting 40-50 million people within range. No country would tolerate it. But that’s the equivalent situation in which tiny Israel has found itself. The West insists on moral equivalence between Israel and the Palestinians, as if the century-old conflict between the Arabs and the Jews were simply a squabble over the equitable division of land. It is not. It is a war to destroy the Jewish national homeland by people driven into frenzy by forces immune to reason.

SnyderTalk Comment: Israel has not been abandoned by true believers.  I’ve explained this many times when talking with groups about the importance of the Name Yahweh: our attitude toward Jewish people and Israel will become the cut-line that differentiates between those who have genuine faith and pretenders.

This is the way the Messiah explained it:

“But when the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the angels with Him, then He will sit on His glorious throne. All the nations will be gathered before Him; and He will separate them from one another, as the shepherd separates the sheep from the goats; and He will put the sheep on His right, and the goats on the left.

“Then the King will say to those on His right, ‘Come, you who are blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry, and you gave Me something to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me something to drink; I was a stranger, and you invited Me in; naked, and you clothed Me; I was sick, and you visited Me; I was in prison, and you came to Me.’ Then the righteous will answer Him, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry, and feed You, or thirsty, and give You something to drink? ‘And when did we see You a stranger, and invite You in, or naked, and clothe You? When did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ The King will answer and say to them, ‘Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me.’”

“Then He will also say to those on His left, ‘Depart from Me, accursed ones, into the eternal fire which has been prepared for the devil and his angels; for I was hungry, and you gave Me nothing to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me nothing to drink; I was a stranger, and you did not invite Me in; naked, and you did not clothe Me; sick, and in prison, and you did not visit Me.’ Then they themselves also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry, or thirsty, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not take care of You?’ Then He will answer them, ‘Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.’ These will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.” (Matthew 25: 31-46)

Who are the Messiah’s “brothers”?  Literally, they are Jewish people, and that was the context in which He said it.  It all goes back to promises that Yahweh made to Abraham and his descendants through Isaac and Jacob/Israel, and no one and nothing can prevent those promises from being fulfilled.

What is the destiny of those who don’t give Yahweh’s brothers aid and comfort and who stand in the way of the fulfillment of His promises?  Eternal punishment and eternity is a very long time.

10 Reasons Why We Need the Messiah Right Now

SnyderTalk Comment:  I agree.  We do need the Messiah right now.  Call Him by His Name, though, and know who you are talking about.  This is the way He explained it: “Jerusalem, Jerusalem, who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together, the way a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were unwilling. Behold, your house is being left to you desolate! For I say to you, from now on you will not see Me until you say, ‘Blessed is He who comes in the Name of Yahweh!’” (Matthew 23: 37-39)  When they ask Him, I think He will come.

4--Scripture of the Day Yahweh

Genesis 21: 27-34

27 Abraham took sheep and oxen and gave them to Abimelech, and the two of them made a covenant. 28 Then Abraham set seven ewe lambs of the flock by themselves. 29 Abimelech said to Abraham, “What do these seven ewe lambs mean, which you have set by themselves?” 30 He said, “You shall take these seven ewe lambs from my hand so that it may be a witness to me, that I dug this well.” 31 Therefore he called that place Beersheba, because there the two of them took an oath. 32 So they made a covenant at Beersheba; and Abimelech and Phicol, the commander of his army, arose and returned to the land of the Philistines. 33 Abraham planted a tamarisk tree at Beersheba, and there he called on the name of Yahweh, the Everlasting God. 34 And Abraham sojourned in the land of the Philistines for many days.

SnyderTalk Comment: Yahweh has been watching over His word to perform it since the beginning.  Nothing can stop Him from doing exactly what He said He will do.  True believers would never want to stand in His way.  Read His Name is Yahweh.

14--Blessings from Revelation 2

Blessings in the Book of Revelation is a book that you need to read, especially now.  There are blessings throughout the Scriptures but Revelation is the only book in the Bible actually containing a specific blessing for reading it. It’s repeated twice, once at the beginning and again at the end. This is the reason that I believe Revelation should be the first step toward studying biblical prophecy. Though not easy to do, Revelation can be broken down and understood by anyone, not just the academic elite. So, Revelation’s blessings are for everyone.  Click here to order the eBook.  Click here to order the paperback.
