    Israeli Forces to Forcibly Remove Gaza Settlers

    Filed under: — Ben Rast @ 7:57 pm

    “Leave this place, you and the people you brought up out of Egypt, and go up to the land I promised on oath to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, saying, ‘I will give it to your descendants.’” – Exodus 33:1

    “In that day the Lord will reach out his hand a second time to reclaim the remnant that is left of his people from Assyria, from Lower Egypt, from Upper Egypt, from Cush, from Elam, from Babylonia, from Hamath and from the islands of the sea. He will raise a banner for the nations and gather the exiles of Israel; he will assemble the scattered people of Judah from the four quarters of the earth.” – Isaiah 11:11-12

    REIM, Israel — Israel dispatched soldiers to the Gaza Strip at the crack of dawn Wednesday, beginning the next and possibly final phase of the pullout: forcible removal of Jewish settlers who continued to cling to their homes. More than 100 Israeli military vehicles left a huge staging area at 6 a.m. (11 p.m. EDT) and headed toward the main crossing point to Gaza. About 50 people protesting the withdrawal managed to delay the convoy by blocking the streets, forcing soldiers and police to drag them out of the vehicles’ path.

    “O God, do not keep silent; be not quiet, O God, be not still. See how your enemies are astir, how your foes rear their heads. With cunning they conspire against your people; they plot against those you cherish. Come, they say, let us destroy them as a nation, that the name of Israel be remembered no more.” – Psalm 83:1-4

    On Tuesday, soldiers marched through the gate and fanned out through the village. Commanders carried maps, and troops took up positions near the industrial zone, linking arms to form a cordon. Other soldiers went house-to-house, trying to persuade residents one last time to leave voluntarily.

    At times, settlers and soldiers were reduced to tears as they argued over the wisdom of abandoning Gaza, Israeli-occupied land for 38 years and the focus of deadly Israeli-Palestinian conflict for decades.

    One woman was overheard telling a soldier how her mother was forced to flee Nazi Germany. “Just remember that you are the evil one who is throwing me out of my house,” the woman said, rebuffing the soldier’s offer of help.

    Moments before midnight, scores of settlers were in synagogues in several Gaza communities, dancing around sacred Torah scrolls. They waved flags and sang nationalist songs, protesting the eventual handing of the land to Palestinian control.

    “I will gather all nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. There I will enter into judgment against them concerning my inheritance, my people Israel, for they scattered my people among the nations and divided up my land.” – Joel 3:2

    Ariel Sharon’s biggest mistake is underway. He will be remembered for surrendering Israeli land to Palestinian Arabs in the false hope that this will bring peace. The Palestinian Arabs will continue to be unable (and, perhaps, unwilling) to control terrorist organizations such as Hamas, who have already stated that this is their first step. They have vowed to keep fighting until they take Jerusalem. Muslims do not want to live peacefully alongside Israel — they want to destroy Israel. Sharon is giving them a hand. The Bush administration, in supporting this move, is displaying an agonizing hypocrisy – rewarding the terrorist actions of Hamas while claiming to oppose all terrorists and those who support them. I suppose as long as those being killed are Jews, it’s not really “terrorism.” I shudder when I know that God is just, and this betrayal of His promised land will not go unpunished.

    By the way, the Gaza Strip sits in the ancient land of Judea — part of the Promised Land.

    One Response to “Israeli Forces to Forcibly Remove Gaza Settlers”

    1. KayakIraq Says:

      During the WWII years, the Nazis forcibly broke down doors and carried Jews from their homes. Now Jews are doing it to Jews. I have so much on my mind and now this morning on TV I see some of what’s happening and it’s just breaking my heart a little more.

      This is without a doubt one of the saddest days in the modern history of Israel.
