LISTEN NOW! With the many urgencies and tragedies happening all across the Globe today, it is easy to get caught up in one thing after another. In the ever-changing tides and happenings of present day, it is imperative that we keep the focus of our eyes and hearts upon Israel. There are so many different voices and narratives that are being spread regarding stories involving Israel. Not all of these are sharing the full story, or what is truly happening.
Dailymail is reporting how the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) has been carrying out special missions to bring medical aid to injured fighters. With the entire fighting taking place within Israel, this would not seem out of the ordinary. Who exactly they are rendering aid to, may surprise you. At the Israeli border its closest Northern neighbor, Syria, Israeli commandos are carrying out high profile missions that are extremely dangerous, they are crossing over the established border and onto Syrian grounds to bring wounded Syrian Islamic Jihadist fighters, who have been wounded, back over onto Israeli soil in order to render the needed aid. All of this is to ultimately save lives; the lives of those who have sworn to destroy and kill Israelis. According to Dailymail, “They have saved more than 2,000 people since 2013, at a cost of 50 million shekels (£8.7million).” These missions carry with them a heightened danger, as possible ambushes linger each and every time Israeli forces cross over to help the identified wounded. Regardless, they continue to go.
This is most likely contrary to the narratives that are often heard in the media. It is not only important, but vital to understand the happenings regarding Israel. Israeli Ambassador to the United States, Ron Dermer, has been a continual voice of truth regarding Israel. During the conflict with the Gaza Strip in 2014, his words of truth were unshakable and undeniable. As images upon images revealed the innocent casualties of Palestinians, Ambassador Dermer highlights the real reason. When he spoke to those with Christians United for Israel (CUFI), he reminded the people that soldiers from Hamas were using civilians as human shields. When Israel responded, a restraint was demonstrated more than any other nation in order to minimize innocent casualties. “Israel deserves much more than support from the International community, Israel deserves admiration from the International community.” By responding the way the IDF did amidst such horrific actions by Hamas, Ambassador Dermer emphatically stresses, “While Israel is doing everything to keep innocent civilians out of harm’s way, Hamas is doing everything it can to put innocent civilians into harm’s way.”With this he also shares, “The Israeli defense force should be given a Nobel Peace Prize… for fighting with unimaginable restraint.”
In order to understand events regarding Israel, we must know the WHOLE story, the FULL story, not just a one sided story that repeatedly places all of the pressure and blame solely upon the shoulders of Israel. With all of this in mind, Ambassador Dermer shares the critical response that is desperately needed in this hour; “It’s time for the UN to find a moral compass; it’s time for the world to find a moral backbone; it’s time to take a stand against the use of human shields.” Allow your perspective of Israel and the hearts of the Jewish people to greatly be challenged and so much more.
