“From the Al-Qassam Brigades to the Zionist soldiers:
The Al-Qassam Brigades love death more than you love life.”
When people comment on world conditions they often put the worst and inevitable slant on them. Crisis politics leads to fear, a loss of liberty, and economic repression.
The following passage out of 2 Timothy 3 was written during the height of the Roman Empire’s power probably when Nero Caesar was in power. It was written to a young pastor, Timothy, who was part of a growing but very uninfluential and pesky group of religious believers that were harassed by their fellow-Jews and later by the Empire:
“But they will not make further progress; for their folly will be obvious to all. . .” (v. 8).
A civilization does not advance if the adherents of the opposing worldview are lopping off the heads of their adversaries. The West grew because outsiders were attracted to its worldview. They often left everything to get in. Other than other radicals like themselves, you don’t find people breaking through the borders of Iraq and Syria wanting to be part of a new Islamic State (IS) except those who love death more than their adversaries love life.
When the women of Islam are treated like dogs, there’s not much joy in marriage and propagating the oppressive ideology.
Then there’s Hamas. Where are these haters of Israel putting their time, money, and energy? In building elaborate tunnels so they can kill Jews.
If they were really interested in civilization building, they would use what gifts they have to out-produce the people they hate. There’s no better revenge than beating an opponent at its own game.
Competition makes both sides better at what they do, and the people benefit because of increased production at a lower cost. When people work, there is no time to fight and murder.
Instead, they scapegoat the Jews and blame them for all their ills.
