Once Again, Israel Bears the Brunt of Violence in Jerusalem During Passover and Ramadan

Each year it’s the same and it’s predictable. During the Jewish celebration of Passover and the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, it seems logical that tensions would subside as Jews look to their most sacred history and Muslims commit to their high holy days of prayer and fasting.

But no. Logic seems to be absent each year during this time, and Israel is unfairly blamed for violence that breaks out in and around Jerusalem, particularly on Temple Mount. So, let’s recount a few of the actions that have taken place in the past few week:

That is only a short list of provocation brought by Arabs and Palestinians against the IDF and Jewish people in general. So, what was the response from others?

Then, if Israel wasn’t hit hard enough by her enemies, fearful of further incidents, Prime Minister Naftali Bennett capitulated to the terrorists by shutting down Temple Mount to all Jewish worshippers until the end of Ramadan. Fear breeds insecurity, and Israelis will soon feel it.

All eyes are currently on Israel, and the stage continues to be set for conflicts involving Israel. Remain alert, my friends, but do not fear. Our Great God knows the end from the beginning, and He will do all His good pleasure! Israel will not be defeated! (Not because they are so strong, but because our Lord God stands as their defender.)

Eyes open and look up, fellow believers! Our redemption draws near. (Luke 21:28)

If interested, here is Amir Tsarfati’s brief update from yesterday. He will have a full update later today.
