Nothing threatens Jewish society as constantly and significantly as anti-Semitism. As believers, if we fail to stand up against anti-Semitism, we are complicit in the constant attempts to destroy God’s chosen people. Today, we turn our focus to the worldwide threat known as anti-Semitism.
He who touches you touches the apple of His eye.~Zechariah 2:8b
Anti-Semitism is on the rise around the world and even within Israel today. It’s at the heart of the terrorism faced both in Israel and abroad, the tensions of hatred that plague Israeli society, and, at its core, is a raging spiritual battle. The fuel of this ancient hatred is found in Satan’s loathing of God’s covenant with Israel and a rejection of God’s sovereign authority.
Let’s stand with Israel in prayer and in public to fight anti-Semitism in Israel and around the world.

Perhaps, if Jews were not as exclusive and opened up to Gentiles, they could help diffuse the evil of anti-Semitism. I regularly get treated as a second class Gentile being, and I can live with that. However, it could perhaps offend some people. If peace efforts come from Jews, in an honest and organic way, perhaps Gentiles won’t feel the need to be defensive.
Wow, this is a huge topic to tackle. History between Jews and Gentiles was very rocky until relatively recent times, often for understandable reasons. However, I’m curious to know how and where you are treated as a second class Gentile. I have certainly not experienced that from Jewish friends. Can you tell me more about your experience?
