“BDS, boycott Israel. Really?”: A recommended article.

An interesting article from the Australian blog of Jews for Jesus.

A few years ago, Iran’s Supreme Leader Grand Ayatollah Ali Khomenei urged the Muslim World to boycott anything and everything that originates with the Jewish people.
In response, Meyer M. Treinkman, a pharmacist, out of the kindness of his heart, offered to assist them in their boycott as follows:


A further quote from the article:

Regardless of your feelings about the crisis between Israel and the Palestinians and Arab neighbours, even if you believe there is more culpability on Israel’s part, the following two sentences really say it all:
‘If the Arabs put down their weapons today, there would be no more violence. If the Jews put down their weapons today, there would be no more Israel.”

  1. I’m not commenting on the main topic of the article/e-mail message (nor on Netanyahu), but I have chosen something that stands out to me today or lately because it has been a wonder to me more and more over time (given my “conservative” upbringing) to directly consider the facts that FDR largely led us through WWII and Eisenhower was such a principled individual when “conservatives” have historically not liked these men and have vociferously talked against them. Come to think of it, the point is similar. Here is the excerpt [not clear on whether the second paragraph is part of what Netanyahu said of Eisenhower or if that is from the author of the article]:

    Benjamin Netanyahu: General Eisenhower warned us. It is a matter of history that when the Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces, General Dwight Eisenhower, found the victims of the death camps he ordered all possible photographs to be taken, and for the German people from surrounding villages to be ushered through the camps and even made to bury the dead.

    He did this because he said in words to this effect: ‘Get it all on record now – get the films – get the witnesses – because somewhere down the road of history some bastard will get up and say that this never happened’

  2. I would disagree with the first of the two statements. Look at the Israeli flag: the top river is the Euphratis, the bottom river is the Nile.

    As regards the first commenter: The whole thing was for Israel’s benefit anyway.

  3. The blue stripes represent the stripes on a prayer shawl. They have nothing to do with rivers in other nations. It sound like you’re listening to/reading the wrong people.

    But as I’ve said – the biblical issue of Israel should not be confused with today’s politics, as if the current nation is the God fearing nation it will one day be. My beliefs are based on the promises and prophecies of scripture, not on current political opinion and prejudice.

    That biblical understanding is actually reinforced by the strong anti-Israelism evident today. Scripture tells us that Israel will be hated, and that the nations will come against Israel. Sadly many in the church ally themselves with those nations.
