INTERNATIONAL ' AL-QUDS ' DAY . . . THE RISING ' SCOURGE ' OF ANTI-SEMITISM

As the Israel-Gaza conflict rages , the dark spectre of ' anti-semitism ' is re-igniting around the world.  Since 1979 ,  Islamic groups have annually held a ' protest day ' known as Al-Quds Day ( ' Jerusalem ' Day ~ Quds is the city's Arabic name ).  Held on the last Friday of the ' Muslim ' Ramadan festival , Quds Day is to support the Palestinian people  &  to protest Israel's control of Jerusalem.  This day of protest typically is an emotion-charged  &  often-violent day , a day for Israel's enemies to vent their hate-filled rhetoric & rage.  It is part of a ' global propaganda campaign ' built on  ethnic racism ,  mis-information  &  ignorance  & now spreading like fire world-wide.  In 2014 , protests were held throughout the Middle East , Latin-America , Europe ... & even in Canada & Australia.  This ever-widening campaign also includes the on-going global effort to isolate Israel  politically  &  cripple her economically by the ' Boycott , Divestment & Sanction ' movement.  This ' false narrative ' of anti-Semitism will continue to escalate & tighten on God's people as her enemies seek to crush & destroy Israel  &  retake the Holy City of Jerusalem.  But it has all been foretold in God's Word.  In fact , God Himself has ' a warning ' for those who seek to destroy His people Israel  &  take His city . . . Fulfilment coming soon !!!

Isaiah 60v2,12-16  -  Darkness shall cover the earth  &  ' gross darkness ' the people but the LORD shall arise upon thee (  Jerusalem )  &  his glory shall be seen upon thee.  For the nation & kingdom that will not serve thee ( Jerusalem )  shall perish ;  yea , those nations shall be utterly wasted.  The glory of Lebanon shall come unto thee ( Jerusalem ) . . . to beautify the place of  my sanctuary  &  I will make the place of my feet glorious.  ' The sons ' also of them ( Arab nations ) that afflicted thee shall ' come bending ' unto thee ( Jerusalem )  &  all they that despised thee shall  ' bow themselves down '  at the soles of thy feet  &  they  shall call thee  " The city of the LORD , The Zion of the Holy One  of Israel "
