How the Jewish state is being demonized

Prophecy Sign:  Israel will be one its own during the coming Tribulation period

Right on time, the entire world is shifting from the support of Israel to the delegitimization of the Jewish state.  We say right on time, because if we truly are at the end of this dispensation and the coming Tribulation is at the door, then according to bible prophecy we should expect the world to be increasing in its hatred of the Jews and the state of Israel.  That will include the nations that presently consider themselves allies of Israel.

In those days and at that time, when I restore the fortunes of Judah and Jerusalem, I will gather all nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. There I will put them on trial for what they did to my inheritance, my people Israel, because they scattered my people among the nations and divided up my land. Joel 3:1-2 NIV

How the Jewish state is being demonized
Over the last few decades, intellectuals of the Left, academics, the UN, human rights organizations, some mainstream Protestant churches and the media have grown not just unsympathetic but, in many cases, hostile toward Israel and Israelis. At the same time, they have been indulgent of Israel’s enemies, Islamist terrorists included. An article over the weekend in the International Herald Tribune noted that “Britain’s center-left Labour Party often sympathizes instinctively with the Palestinian cause.” Hamas — which claimed responsibility for the murders of the woman and child in Jerusalem last week — defines the Palestinian cause as the extermination of Israel and the murder of Jews. (It’s in the Hamas Charter. Look it up.)

Team Obama's Pointless Attack on Israel
What does the Obama administration hope to accomplish by trashing Israel in the press? This is the most important question after an apparently coordinated wave of anonymous quotes welled up in Tuesday’s press. Relations with Israel have steadily worsened over the course of Obama’s presidency, and little of what was said was out of step with some views being expressed in broader policy circles. But why say it, and why now?

US anger at Netanyahu said ‘red-hot’ as ties hit new low
American anger at the government of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is “red hot” and the relationship between Israel and the US is now in a “full-blown crisis,” The Atlantic reported Tuesday. The piece, by Jeffrey Goldberg, observed the extraordinarily harsh tone now used in increasingly regular and open fashion by Obama administration officials in reference to Jerusalem leaders, chiefly among them Netanyahu. One senior administration official was quoted by the publication as calling the Israeli prime minister “a chicken###t,” referring to what he saw as the premier’s pandering to his political base for fear of electoral defeat, his refusal to make any diplomatic headway with the Palestinians and moderate Arab states, and his fear of initiating wars. 

Netanyahu: I'm being attacked because of my determination to defend Israel's interests
In his first public remarks since being branded "chicken###t" by an Obama administration official, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Wednesday that he "cares for every citizen and soldier" and that he would withstand pressure and forgo "applause on lawns" that come with territorial concessions. "I am being attacked because I am willing to defend the State of Israel," Netanyahu said on the Knesset podium during a special session honoring the memory of assassinated tourism minister Rehavam Ze'evi.
