Many of us have forgotten—perhaps because the press declines to air it—that videotape of Palestinians dancing with joy on September 11. Just as they celebrate the mass murder of Americans, Palestinians celebrate the mass murder of Israelis. Iranian-backed Hamas leaders officially bless the massacres, as does the military wing of the PLO, which declares them heroic acts.
Much of the world shrugged at this latest mass murder in Israel. But we, as followers of Jesus Christ, can do no less than raise our voices in outrage for our elder brothers in the faith. Sound the alarm over the consequences if we pull out of Iraq. How many friends do you suppose we would have left in the Middle East if Israel is destroyed?
