independence in 1946.
Te same British authority created Iran, Iraq, Jordan, etc., in the 1920s following WWI. But the FIRST national creation by the British was a homeland for the Jews in 1917, centered around the city of Jerusalem.
Ninety years ago, the only defined ‘state’ in the Middle East was the Jewish Man- date. And it was created by the same au- thority that created the rest of the modern Arab Middle East.
Ninety years later, even many Jews aren’t sure who really owns Jerusalem. At least, unsure enough to seriously consider the prospect of divided ownership. Behold, the power of propaganda!
Tere is no history among the children of men more carefully documented than that of the Jewish People. Until the destruction of the Second Temple, Jews could trace their genealogy back to Adam.
Teir every conquest, every king, every ruler, every occupier was carefully record- ed, their entire history, spanning three thousand years, is set down, in detail, in the pages of the Bible.
Until this generation, “Te City of David” was instantly recognizable as another name for Jerusalem. For centuries, Chris- tians sang of the “City of David” in our hymnals.
Is Jerusalem a Jewish city? Or an Arab city? ... It’s like asking, “Is the Pope Catholic?”
Suddenly, in a single generation, Jeru- salem’s Jewish pedigree is in doubt. Te entire world has taken a stake in solving a mystery that is mysterious only in that anybody finds it mysterious in the first place.
Is Jerusalem a Jewish city? Or an Arab city? I find myself astonished, even at this point in history, that anybody could en- tertain that as a question. It’s like asking, “Is the Pope Catholic?” but to the world, the ownership of Jerusalem is as baffling as the identity of the true architect of the Sphinx.
Te problem with Israel’s history is Israel’s history. Israel’s history is recorded in the Bible, and for the world to accept Israel’s history means accepting the Bible as well.
Tat is unacceptable. Te world prefers the delusional view that Jerusalem is really an Arab city stolen by the Jews in 1967.
Te alternative, historical view comes too close to legitimizing the Bible for com- fort. Tey prefer the lie, because the truth makes them uncomfortable.
“And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: Tat they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness” (2nd Tessalonians 2:11-12).
