Why Are People Against Israel?

So a friend of mine was part of a Facebook group that was made up of people who were involved with all kinds of what is termed “lightworkers” – people who work in the less mainstream side of healing, such as empaths, clairvoyants, spirituals healers and others. More importantly, it was a group that had nothing to do with Israel.  But despite this she noticed that, as time went on, people started to interject and refer to “zionism” in the group in a very negative way, equating it to racism or apartheid or some other kind of evil ideology. She became confused and uncomfortable, because growing up in a Jewish Zionistic house, she knew none of this was remotely true. She challenged those in the group, but failed to receive a response.  Thinking perhaps people simply didn’t understand what zionism meant, she made a video, outlining some basic facts about Israel, Zionism and the conflict in Middle East and shared it with the group. Her intention was to clarify with the group the meaning of Zionism.

She expected the members, who by the very nature of being part of a group like this, would be sensitive to what she said and receptive. But what followed next shocked her to the core. Her video was deleted and she was called all sorts of names and deemed a racist – including by another Jew! She was told to go back to the oven where she belonged and was inundated with messages such as “Hitler was right” and you are a “zionazi.” People who she never dreamed would be anti-Semitic were posting all kinds of poisonous vitriol hatred against her for standing up for Israel.

And it causes any rational person to wonder – just why are people against Israel?

Israel is a modern democratic country with full rights for all its citizens – Jews, Arabs and Christians. People are free to live the kind of lives they want to; free to worship however they wish, give their opinions without fear of intimidation, dress however they choose, and get access to any literature they want. Despite being surrounded by enemy countries, it is a free society governed by personal choice.

Who can possibly be against that?

But you see… here’s the thing.

People are not against Israel because of her policies.

They do not rally against Israel because of the so-called “occupation” or “territorial disputes,” because there are plenty of places around the world that have those – all of which are ignored.

They do not rally against Israel because of how the palestinians are supposedly mistreated since there are so many places around the world where people are genuinely oppressed. Just look at how palestinians are treated in Arab countries or look at North Korean citizens, or look at different tribes in parts of Africa, or how Indians with a lower caste are treated.

They accuse Israel of racism, because it wants to deport illegal African migrants, but once again there are so many countries who have deported tens of thousands and hundreds of thousands of illegal migrants, yet there are no demonstrations against those countries.

They say Israel uses “disproportionate force” in military response, yet remain silent when any other does the same.

None of Israel’s policies matter, because the real reason, and the reason my friend’s video was rejected, is far simpler.

And that is that when it comes to Israel, the facts don’t matter – and yet they do. They matter, because it’s critical for us to equip ourselves with as much knowledge as possible about the nature of the conflicts and the history of the country as possible. And they matter when you are dealing with rational people who have a genuine desire to seek knowledge before anything else

But they also don’t matter when you are dealing with other people who are not interested in them in the first place. Their minds have already been made up, poisoned by prejudice and hatred.

Just think about it. The palestinians receive the sympathy of the world with no real facts to back them up, just constant chants and accusations that hold no substance, yet Israel receives the world’s contempt despite an abundance of facts and figures.

Why is it like that?

Hatred of Israel

Because when it comes to Israel, it comes to the Jews. Now I get that I sound like one of those paranoid Jews who finds anti-Semitism hiding under every rock, but I would just pose the simple question: Is Israel treated the same as any other country?

From above, it should be clear that it isn’t.

Historically, the world likes the Jews to be poor, downtrodden, and powerless. If Israel ever had to be destroyed – the world would express plenty of sympathy and empathy – but do nothing else. During the Holocaust, Jews were turned away from every port on earth, including the United States. They were prevented by the British from entering the Land of Israel – despite their government’s promise and recognition of Israel as the Jewish Homeland in the Balfour Declaration. The majority of those Jews – men, women and children – were sent back to their deaths in Nazi Germany.

Jews weren’t running to find better lives – they were running to save their lives!

These days, the campaigns against Israel and the Jews, be it Poland, Ukraine, the EU, the United Nations or UNESCO, has tapped into something that is considered the oldest hatred of all – anti-Semitism. People have grown comfortable and confident again in slandering the Jews. Yes, they say Israel, and not the Jews, because to them it gives them cover against the accusation of anti-Semitism, but in reality it’s just semantics. The result is the same.

They tell us they are acting in the service of justice, but in reality they are the servants of injustice.

And while there are plenty of amazing individuals who support Israel, a simple look at the voting patterns of countries at the UN will tell you the overwhelming majority of countries do not.

The hatred that manifests itself against Israel has little to do with anything it does, but everything to do with everything it is.

Israel exists. The Jews have their country back – and people don’t like that.

  1. Have you ever wondered why so many people
    want to take the land of Israel and Jerusalem
    away from the Jewish people?

    Here are two answers, based on the Jewish Bible:
    __________________________________________________
    In the Biblical Book of Joshua, chapter 23,
    verses 12 to 13, G_d reveals that:

    If Jews intermarry with non-Jews, then He will NOT
    help the Jews conquer the Land of Israel.

    And even worse, the sin of intermarriage will cause
    the Jews to be driven out from the Land of Israel.

    __________________________________________________
    The Biblical Book of Jeremiah, end of chapter 17,
    teaches:

    If the Jewish people observe Shabbat [the Jewish Sabbath]
    then Jerusalem will be ruled by Jews forever (verses 24 to 25).

    But if Jews DO NOT observe Shabbat,
    then the Land of Israel [literally, Jerusalem] will
    burn with fire (verse 27, last verse of chapter).

  2. Long live Israel!!! the main problem of antisemitism in UK is down to the
    so-called upper classes of society I am so pleased that Prince William & Kate are visiting Israel I do hope they are given the freedom they desire & the Palace allows this. My mother was born in UK & her father was killed in the 1st WW both were Jews British Nazis were a lot to blame for antisemitism which has carried on till to-day with Jews being physically harmed in the streets, however, I don’t see any political correctness regarding Jews that other races enjoy & those that want to change English Law to their own to Jews who are Anti-Israel I would suggest they look at Jewish history & remember that is their roots .

    Justin, all you have observed is true! Now, as a Gentile (who loves Israel), I say that the simple reason that everyone is against the Jews and Israel is that they are “God’s chosen nation” – and the natural bent of all humankind is that they do not want God! That is fact. So the why is clear. But be sure: Israel will eventually be supreme because God is in control and will only endure their victimisation for so long!

    1. G Griffiths

      So, Mr Lesleighter, you are one of those, are you, who believes in this deity who favours certain people because of their birthright? Depending on whether you regard the Jewish people as a race, we could describe him as a racist god.

  4. Very good publication. I have, many, many times try to understand why the attitude of a lot of people and countries is against Israel and the Jews. This article helps a lot to understand.
    I am not a jew, I am a Catholic from Guatemala. For me, judaism is a big part of my religion. What we call the old testament is taken out of the torah. Jesus was a jew so his mother, father, disciples and most of the first Christians.
    On the other hand, today´s Israel is one of the best countries in the world. It is one of the countries ( and people) that has given lots of good things to humanity. LONG LIVE ISRAEL

    Every word in this article by Justin Amler is right on target, he is one hundred percent
    right!
    I could not have said it better myself.
    No matter what we do in this life, people around the world will still continue to hate us
    with a vengeance.
    The plague during the 1300’s in Europe, the stock market crash of 1929 on Wall Street
    and the ensuing recession during the 1930’s , all of it the fault of those pesky Jews.
    There seems to be no cure for antisemitism, so in the end f- k these antisemitic morons
    and let them stew in their own irrational hatred!
    Today we have our own country called Israel, a country that has been ranked as the 15th strongest military power in the world out of 130 different countries, we don’t need
    other peoples opinions on us. To hell with them all!

    1. Dornfaust

      A few years ago we were ranked the 10th most powerful nation. We should be ranked the 4th most powerful. That will take a concerted effort on our part. That would mean that group like De’ash, Hisb., Iran, and Turkey would at least respect us, and avoid making war against. Even so, they would continue to hate us.

  6. Judy Taylor

    They hated us when we were weak and now they hate us because we are strong, we will never win but now we are strong and let’s hope it will always be that way! Long live Israel and to hell with those who hate us!

    1. C Cuellar

      I think that the answer is in the Bible. The Prophets spoke God’s word. All this is supposed to happen and those people will be judged. Israel will win and be an example to the world, ruled by the King of Kings. The Bible said tha God would send the Jews, exiled, all ovef the world but He would bring them back. That He did in 1948. What He says He will do, He will do.
