Perhaps Christian-Zionists need some perspective regarding Israel.  The first thing to consider is that the land was not promised to them.  They were not instructed to conquer the land like Joshua was.  The land was promised to Abraham and his descendants who are the Israel of God (Gal 6:16).   Who are the descendants of Abraham?   They are those who do the works of Abraham (John 8:39).   They are not nationalist-supremacists.   And by the way…the Palestinians are Semites.  Bombing them is antisemitic.

Attorney, professor, and author Noura Erakat on Trump’s “deal of the century”: a call for permanent apartheid in Palestine.

President Trump was joined by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to unveil the so-called “deal of the century” at the White House. Attorney and author Noura Erakat says Trump’s so-called “peace plan” is a con that seeks

to cement Israeli apartheid for Palestinians in the Occupied Territories.

Guest: Noura Erakat. Human rights attorney, legal scholar, Assistant Professor at Rutgers University, and author of Justice for Some: Law and in the Question of Palestine.

 

“The worst way to report about this plan, this apartheid plan, is to make it about the messengers, is to make it about Trump, is to make it about Netanyahu,” Erakat said.

“This is not about the brokers of peace, and whether or not they could be better. This is about a structure, and a structure of US imperialism in the Middle East, at which Israel is the cornerstone of that policy.”

Erakat continued: “What Trump has done is he has brought to a logical conclusion five decades of US foreign policy, or US imperial policy, as regards the question of Palestine.”

“Previous administrations, Obama, Clinton, Bush, Bush senior, even Carter, Reagan, Lyndon B. Johnson, Gerald Ford … all of them in succession have steadily laid the ground for groundwork for this moment that Trump can oversee.”
