"Israel Stealing Land"

In response to a comment made about Israel stealing land, I want to re-post this picture.

Peace upon all who follows god's words,

I just have one comment on this picture.
Years ago, There was no Israel on the earth's map, who put it there ? who decided to "build" israel in that place ?

Remember, Israel has a dream to occupy the land from Nile (River in Egypt) till Furat (River in Iraq)... still not occupying any land ?!!!!

Again, I say, Amen, watchwoman!

Some people will believe anything they hear, even when the facts are so obvious. It is sad. But God is in control and will protect Israel in the end.

I want to add one thing that prove my question is "right"..
in ur post Here
You said :

Only 60 years ago, they were leading Jews to their death like sheep to the slaughter!
No Country, No Army.


The country the U.N. “gave us” was 65% desert.

maybe this helps declaring my question..

Do I consider what a reply to your questions? That leannot said amen? I didn't post that so obviously somebody agrees with me. :)

So who decided to put Israel where it is now? God, the Creator of the Universe, the Mighty One of Israel, did. God promised the land of Israel to the Jewish people 4000 years ago.

"Now the LORD had said unto Abram... I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee..." (Genesis 12:1-3)

"And Abram passed through the land unto the place of Sichem [Shechem, in the Palestinian West Bank], unto the plain of Moreh. And the Canaanite was then in the land. And the LORD appeared unto Abram, and said, Unto thy seed [Isaac, Jacob, the Jewish people] will I give this land..." (Genesis 12:6-7)

The debate about occupation will go nowhere unless you want to give the land back to the now extinct Canaanites. Israel possessed the land thousands of years ago, before they were exiled, and now they are back. So they had a prior claim on the land.

Regardless, since God is a Zionist, so am I. We could debate facts or emotional issues all day long but that doesn't change the fact that this is a spiritual issue, and that I choose God's side.
