Palestinians are often portrayed as innocent victims. This editorial will show that many of the Palestinians are suicidal terrorists with the intention of destroying innocent Jews, including Jews who try to help them.
The Christ At The Checkpoint Conferences are sponsored by a group of liberals who say that they are Palestinian Christians. They claim to be seeking a solution to the conflict between the Palestinians and the Jews in Israel. I will expose how their unbiblical solutions are against God and Israel! Everyone needs to be aware of the dangerous ideas of Christ At The Checkpoint.
The following is a story of how deep the Palestinians have sunk into the moral abyss. This story was told by an Israeli, Dr. Arieh Eldad, on May 20, 2011.
“I was instrumental in establishing the Israeli National Skin Bank, which is the largest in the world. The National Skin Bank stores skin for everyday needs as well as for war time or mass casualty situations.
This skin bank is hosted at the Hadassah Ein Kerem University hospital in Jerusalem where I was the Chairman of plastic surgery. This is how I was asked to supply skin for an Arab woman from Gaza, who was hospitalized in Soroka Hospital in Beersheva, after her family burned her. Usually, such atrocities happen among Arab families when the women are suspected of having an affair.
We supplied all the needed Homografts for her treatment. She was successfully treated by my friend and colleague, Prof. Lior Rosenberg and discharged to return to Gaza. She was invited for regular follow-up visits to the outpatient clinic in Beersheva.
One day she was caught at a border crossing wearing a suicide belt. She meant to explode herself in the outpatient clinic of the hospital where they saved her life. It seems that her family promised her that if she did that, they would forgive her.
This is only one example of the war between Jews and Muslims in the Land of Israel. It is not a territorial conflict. This is a civilizational conflict, or rather a war between civilization & barbarism.” (5)
Most dogs will not bite the hand of the person who loves them and feeds them. But, many Palestinians turn on their Jewish friends like rabid dogs. Wake up Palestinians and Christians! Israel is not your enemy! Jews are not carrying out vicious, hateful acts of aggression like those Palestinians who choose to be terrorists. Those at Christ At The Checkpoint need to open their eyes to the truth!
Doctor Izzeldin Abuelaish spoke at the Christ at the Checkpoint conference in Bethelehem on March 12, 2014. Doctor Abuelaish delivered his message live by way of Skype on the internet. The doctor’s thoughts flashed back to the nightmarish night in 2009 when an Israeli army tank shot into his house killing three of his daughters and a niece. Another daughter and a niece were treated for wounds from the deadly tank fire. The following account was reported in 2009 right after the tragic event happened.
“Dr. Izzeldin Abuelaish is a Gazan and a doctor who has devoted his life to medicine and reconciliation between Israelis and Palestinians. ‘I dedicated my life really for peace, for medicine,’ said Dr. Abuelaish, who does joint research projects with Israeli physicians and for years has worked as something of a one-man force to bring injured and ailing Gazans for treatment in Israel. ‘This is the path I believed in and what I raised and educated my children to believe,’ he said.” (6)
Right after an Israeli tank accidentally killed Dr Abuelaish’s two daughters and a niece, an ambulance was sent to the border crossing to get the doctor and his other two wounded girls. When he arrived at the hospital, many of his Israeli colleague friends surrounded Dr. Abuelaish in an effort to comfort him as much as possible. Many of his Israeli friends were crying about his loss.
“An army spokesman said that a preliminary investigation had shown that soldiers were returning fire toward the direction of areas from which they had been fired upon.
‘The Israeli Defense Forces does not target innocents or civilians, and during the operation the army has been fighting an enemy that does not hesitate to fire from within civilian targets,’ said the spokesman, speaking anonymously on behalf of the army.” (7)
In 2014 at the Christ at the Checkpoint conference, Dr. Abuelaish expressed forgiveness for those who killed his children, and he said that he continues to hope for peace between the Palestinians and the Jews. But, he also expressed that Israel was oppressing the Palestinians. He failed to say Israel was defending itself against violent Palestinians who continue to carry out constant aggressive, murderous attacks on innocent people. It has been necessary for the IDF to take offensive action against the terroristic Palestinians to prevent them from carrying out their deadly missions against innocent citizens.
The Israeli Defense Force is very well trained, and they are taught to guard the innocent. Certainly, mistakes could have been made the night Dr. Abuelaish’s children were killed, but on the other hand, it is not uncommon for Palestinian terrorists to hide near or among innocent civilians when firing upon Israeli soldiers. If the enemy was not in the house of Dr. Abuelaish, it is very likely that they were near his house, as they fired on the Israeli Defense Force. It is sad, but sometimes the innocent are in harms way because of the ruthless ways of the Palestinian terrorists. If terrorists were using the innocent for human shields, the real blame for the doctor’s loss falls on the terrorists and Palestinian Authority President Mahmud Abbas, who needs to put a stop to the Palestinian terrorists. I listened to a lot of the conference, and the sad story about the doctor and his family is the only sad story that I heard. I did not hear any sad stories about Palestinian suicide bombers killing innocent Jews. These Palestinian Christians allowed the Christ at the Checkpoint conference to be prejudice against the Jews, who want peace. Considering that Dr. Abuelaish is a Muslim, it is not beyond the realm of possibilities that he was harboring terrorists in his house. Many Muslims would consider it an honor to protect these enemies of the Jews. Since many of the radical Muslims have no problem blowing themselves up, these same Muslims would have no problem lying. Of course, I hope that is not the case with Dr. Abuelaish, and I do not want to falsely accuse him of harboring the enemy.
The saddest thing about the death of the doctor’s daughters and niece is that it appears they believed in a false god. Dr. Abuelaish talked about god, hope, faith and peace, but all of this centered around the false god Allah! Dr. Abuelaish is a devout Muslim and most likely, his niece and daughters were also. Muslims do not believe in Jesus as their only personal Saviour. If his daughters were at the age of accountability and they died without knowing Jesus as their personal Saviour, they are in the fires of Hell because of their rejection of Jesus. Their eternal loss should make the doctor weep more than their physical death. Dr. Abuelaish! You can still save yourself and the rest of your family if you all turn to Jesus for the gift of eternal salvation. Your good works are commendable, but if you are doing them thinking that they will earn you eternal life, you are dead wrong!
“B’Tselem’s research indicates that, from June 2004 to 17 April 2013, 24 Israeli civilians (four of them minors) and one foreign national were killed in Israel by Palestinian rocket and mortar fire. In addition, five soldiers were killed, three in Israel and two in the Gaza Strip. Another Israeli civilian and three foreign nationals were killed by rocket fire at settlements in the Gaza Strip, before they were evacuated. Palestinian rocket fire also killed at least ten Palestinians (seven of them minors).One Israeli civilian (a minor in Israel) and one soldier (in the Gaza Strip) were killed by an anti-tank missile fire.” (8)
As you can see in the above data, vicious, misdirected Palestinian rocket and mortar fire kill both innocent Israeli and Palestinian civilians. On the other hand, maybe these Palestinian terrorists purposely killed the innocent, including Palestinian civilians.This kind of news was limited at the “Christ at the Checkpoint” conference. Apparently, their goal seems to be to put worldwide pressure on Israel to fall to their knees in defeat. Israel was made to look like a ruthless tyrant, when in fact the Palestinian terrorists are the real tyrants. The liberal press also makes sure that when a Palestinian is killed by an Israeli soldier that blood is splashed across the front page of every major newspaper and on the internet. But, when an innocent Israeli is murdered by a Palestinian terrorist it may not even be reported on the back page of the same newspapers or on the internet by the liberal media.
There are some Palestinian Muslims who are friendly toward the Jewish people, but there are also many Palestinians who would like to wipe all Jews off the face of the earth. These extreme Palestinian Muslims justify their murderous actions by the Quran. They use such verses from the Quran as:
Quran (4:74) – “Let those fight in the way of Allah who sell the life of this world for the other. Whoso fighteth in the way of Allah, be he slain or be he victorious, on him We shall bestow a vast reward.”
The suicide bomber is falsely comforted with Quran verses like this one. They believe that if they kill Christians and Jews who are non-believers in the Muslim religion that they will receive rewards in the afterlife. Also, these verses teach them that they will receive great rewards if they die as a martyr fighting Christians and Jews, who they consider to be infidels.
Quran (5:33) – “The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His messenger and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned; this shall be as a disgrace for them in this world, and in the hereafter they shall have a grievous chastisement”
These extremists consider it an honor to bring harm to those who oppose their damning religion. They are instructed in the Quran to murder, crucify, cut your hands and feet off or imprison you. These radicals have the same faulty belief system that was held by the Muslims who struck the Twin Towers in New York with deadly force. The Palestinians are taught at training camps to hate Jews, and they are told that it is their duty to wipe them off the face of the earth. It is also their goal to rule the world. This sounds like Hitler all over again! You can view a Palestinian training camp below by clicking on play.

Fellow Christians, how would you like a suicide bomber to move in next to your house? This is exactly what many Christians are asking Israel to do. Many people are trying to allow Palestinians to gain political status by pushing for and gaining a two-state solution between Israel and Palestine. A Palestinian state would move permanent suicide bombers next door to them. Please do not ask the Jewish people to do something that you know you would not want to do! The tragic event in the following story tells what happened on Thursday, August 9, 2001, at 2:00 PM. The Palestinian who dropped off this suicide bomber was considered a hero by the Palestinians. Do not forget what happened to America a short time after this on 9-11 at the Twin Towers! This is the same type of people who many are trying to force on Israel as neighbors. It is time to take a stand for Israel and help them to be safe in their homes and when they are eating out in a restaurant. If these Palestinian terrorists will kill their babies, they will kill yours! Even with all of the checkpoints and safety checks, murderous, Palestinian terrorists still sometimes sneak in and harm the innocent in Israel.
“A suicide bomber wreaked bloody havoc on a lunchtime crowd in a Jerusalem restaurant today – killing up to 19 people, including several infants, and injuring scores more. The blast was the latest in a series of suicide bombings – and with them, Israeli retaliations – that have just about shredded a U.S.-brokered truce that has never gotten off the ground. ‘I heard a loud boom, and I came out of the store and saw a woman with a baby covered with blood,’said Sarit Barashy, who was shopping nearby. ‘The street was full of blood.’ ‘We heard a huge boom and saw people lying all over,’said another witness, Lital Deri. ‘I saw a soldier flying through the air. People ran around with blood all over their faces.’
Israel Radio reported 18 dead in today’s blast, including nine babies and young children. Hospitals said 87 people were wounded, including four babies and two children. The militant Palestinian group Islamic Jihad claimed responsibility for the bombing, the second-deadliest attack in 10 months of the latest Mideast violence.” (9)
It is a worthy cause for Christians to work for peace in the Palestinian and Israel conflict, but the answer is not for Israel to lay down their arms of defense. Sometimes Israel must defend their people by attacking the Palestinian terrorists before they are attacked by them. It is time for America to quit supporting the Palestinians who endorse terrorist attacks on the Jews and on their own people. If America and the rest of the world do not stand up to defend Israel, God will stand against those who oppose Israel. False peace is the deadly weapon of destruction that the Palestinian enemies of Israel could use to destroy Israel! Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu very wisely stated the necessity for Israel not to lay down their arms of war.
“The truth is that if Israel were to put down its arms, there would be no more Israel. If the Arabs were to put down their arms, there would be no more war.” (10)
-Israel Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu
It is certainly a worthy cause to try to save the lives of innocent people from the ravages of war. But, the fact is there will be wars and rumors of wars in Israel until Jesus comes back. Just before Jesus comes back, there will be tribulation in Israel as a result of bloody wars against Israel. Those at the Christ at the Checkpoint conference seemed to imply that they and other Christians could bring in the Messiah’s kingdom by their efforts of peace. But, the truth is that only Jesus can bring peace to Israel and this war-torn world. The following verses from Matthew 24, concerning wars till He comes back, was prophesied by Jesus. I do not know about you, but I will take His Word about the future of wars and Israel!
Matthew 24:6-7, 9, 21, 29, 30 “And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. 9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake. 21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. 29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: 30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.”
Next time read: Israel Is Not Apartheid! It was claimed at the “Christ at the Checkpoint” conference that Israel is enforcing apartheid actions on the Palestinians. This is claimed because of the wars, walls, checkpoints, and removal of Palestinians from certain areas to control them.
