Worship leader Sean Feucht (pronounced Foyt) led “Riots to Revival” rallies in the insurrection hubs of both Portland and Seattle this past weekend.
That same weekend, Franklin Graham announced he will lead a prayer march in Washington, D.C. on September 26–the same day as “The Return.”
I believe a movement of renewal has begun. This revival begins with repentance and a Spirit-led offensive against the current hatred toward America.
Why does the radical left hate America and Israel?
Why the Hatred for America and Israel?
I believe some of the greatest thinkers/writers in the world today are Jewish. Why? It’s a product of inherited wisdom and knowledge that comes from Israel’s 4000 thousand-year relationship with God.
I have a friend who invented hardware that revolutionized video gaming. One day he asked me where I thought he got his best engineers. Since he often traveled to Asia, I answered that they must be Japanese, Taiwanese, or from some other Asian Tiger.
He said no.
They came from Israel.
Here is the latest article from Jewish pundit Dennis Prager on the culture war–with my thoughts on the real motive behind it.
Anti-Americanism: The New Anti-Semitism
By Dennis Prager
“What are the two most hated countries in the world?”
“America and Israel.”
“Who hates both America and Israel?”
“The left (and Islamists).”
“And why is that? Why does the left (not liberals) hate America and Israel?”
“In Why the Jews?: The Reason for Antisemitism, a book I co-authored with Rabbi Joseph Telushkin in 1983 (the latest edition was published in 2016), we compared hatred of America with hatred of Jews.”
“This is what we wrote. It precisely explains what is happening in America today:”
“Perhaps the best way to understand the admiration and resentment elicited by the quality of Jewish life is to compare the reactions of the world to America’s quality of life. No other country has so many people seeking to move there. At the same time, no country, except Israel, is the target of so many hateful and false attacks.”
“The United States, because of its success and its ideals, challenges many people throughout the world. How did America, a nation composed largely of those rejected by other societies (‘The wretched refuse of your teeming shore’ declare the words at the base of the Statue of Liberty), become the most affluent, freest, most powerful, and most influential society in the world?”
“Americans generally attribute this success to the values of America’s founding generations (such as individual liberty, religious tolerance, Judeo-Christian morality, and secular government), to a work ethic, and to the subsequent waves of immigrants who embraced these values.”
“Enemies of America attribute it to the country’s natural resources, just as many people attribute Jewish success to their natural resource, alleged greater innate intelligence.”
“Others claim that through capitalist exploitation, America cheated poorer countries, paralleling charges that Jewish success has been attained through economic ‘bloodsucking.’ Still others develop an imperialist version of America’s past and present, similar to the anti-Jewish charge of a world Jewish conspiracy.”
“But the United States is hardly the only society with great natural resources, and it has been the least imperialistic of the world’s powers. America’s values, not unfair resource distribution or world exploitation, have made the United States better, just as Judaism and its values, not genetic advantage or economic conspiracies, account for the quality of life led by Jews. The two people’s quality of life has provoked similar reactions—many admire them, and many resent them.”
Prager’s article continues:
“Just like the Jews, America is hated because it is successful. For over a century, it has been the most successful country in the world—in virtually every way.”
“If having had slavery was a real issue in the left’s anti-Americanism, the left would hate the Arab world and Latin American countries such as Brazil more than it hates the United States.”
“While The New York Times and other left-wing institutions are preoccupied with slavery in America, they ignore—out of ideological non-concern or out of sheer ignorance—the vastly larger number of Africans enslaved by Muslim and South American nations.”
“Of the more than 12 million African slaves shipped to the Western Hemisphere, only about 3%—between 306,000 and 380,000—were sent to the United States. The other 97% were sent to the Caribbean and Brazil. And the slaves in the U.S. South lived longer and made larger families than the slaves of Latin America.”
“Yet the U.S. is singled out for hatred. Why? Because the left does not resent Brazil. Brazil is not an object of envy.”
“Likewise, there is no left-wing hatred of the Arab world, which enslaved far more blacks than the North and South Americas combined. The internationally recognized expert on African history, Senegalese anthropologist Tidiane N’Diaye, wrote:”
“‘Most people still have the so-called Transatlantic [slave] trade by Europeans into the New World in mind. But in reality the Arab-Muslim slavery was much greater. … The Arab Muslims were the most murderous of all those involved in the slave trade.'”
“Part of that murderous treatment of African slaves involved castrating the males so they could not reproduce. And the women and girls were traded as sex slaves.”
“Where is the leftist anger at the Arab and Muslim world? There is, of course, none. On the contrary, the left protects the Muslim and Arab world against moral criticism.”
“The left hates America for its success and influence on the world, just as anti-Semites hated Jews for their success and influence on the world.”
“The left doesn’t hate America because it is bad. It hates America because it is good. If the left hated evil, it would love America and hate its enemies.”
I agree with every word.
But Prager doesn’t take the last logical step.
The left (radical atheists or secularists) hate America and Israel not just because of envy or greed (though true). There is a satanic realm behind the human faces that hates God–the one who made these nations great through their honoring Him.
The demonic world hates Israel because of Abraham, saving faith, and the coming of the promised Messiah. It was Israel that gave the special revelation of God to humanity. That is why demonic-induced people (including Adolph Hitler) try to destroy the Jews–not just because of money and success.
Israel stands as a living testimony of God’s reality and salvation message that must be silenced or annihilated.
Same with America. No nation in the history so consciously based its society on the teachings of the Bible and the Lordship of Jesus Christ. In fact, during the Revolutionary period in which the colonists rejected kings for individual self-government, a rallying cry of the American patriots thundered:
“We have no king but Jesus!”
The America Revolution was a political expression of biblical truths centered around Jesus Christ liberating and empowering human hearts. That is the main reason the secularists hate America. They really hate God and want to stop the expansion of His eternal Kingdom.
Israel is the “root” of God’s redemption on earth and America the biggest “branch”” of world evangelism in the past one hundred years.
Ardent atheists (exposing the heart of Satan himself) despise God. He’s the ultimate object of their loathing. That’s why they burn Bibles and have tried to kill Jews and followers of Jesus for thousands of years.
Lord Jesus–we repent and ask you to send a revival of love replacing hate and faith displacing fear to America, Israel and around the world.
