Just how much hatred of Israel is there in the world? You may be surprised.
Much of the audience of The Remnant Road is pro-Israel. Whether Messianic/Hebrew Roots, Christian, or Jewish, our impression of the State of Israel and the Jewish people is positive. That attitude, of course, comes from a biblical worldview which sees Israel as the covenant nation of the Almighty God. Yet most of the world does not share such a worldview.
This is where Lee Bender comes in. He has been fighting anti-Israel bias for many years through his website, Facts on Israel, and in his position as co-president of the Philadelphia Chapter, Zionist Organization of America. Lee joins us to talk about Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS), the movement that is born from a worldview which sees Israel as illegitimate. His particular topic in this visit is the current concert tour of Roger Waters, former Pink Floyd bass player who is actively promoting BDS at every opportunity. Why is this important? That is what Lee will explain to us.
Before we visit with Lee, Hanoch Young will join us for a live report from Israel. He will have just returned home from a trip to the US for the Latter Reign Conference in Lake City, Florida. Expect some eye-opening observations as Hanoch shares his perspective on the current state of affairs.

What happened at the United Nations last Friday, December 23? That has been the topic of many conversations over the past few days as news of UN Security Council Resolution 2334 has raised great concern over what this means for Israel. Those who are watching the signs of the times for understanding of biblical prophecies uniformly recognize that the resolution and the role of the United States in bringing it to pass have brought the world across another great threshold in anticipated End Times scenarios.
But do we really know what happened, or what to expect? Yes, we do have an idea. That is the purpose of the following analysis by Gary Bauer, a Christian with a wealth of knowledge and experience in Washington’s political circles. It is offered here in the interest of providing a succinct summary of what happened, and a clear projection of the consequences.

In an administration that has moved from one low to the next when it comes to foreign policy and our role in the world, Obama set a new low last weekend as Jews and Christians were preparing to celebrate Chanukah and Christmas. If you are confused about how damaging last week’s U.N. Security Council vote is, all you need to know is that decent people on the left and right are condemning it, while Hamas and Islamic Jihad are dancing in the streets.

Why would Jews have Christmas traditions? As Aaron Eby explains in this article published by First Fruits of Zion, the tradition of Nittel Nacht originated in Eastern Europe in response to the anti-Semitic acts of Christians frequently committed on Christmas Eve. It would seem that the version of the story of Jesus which they had heard in Christmas Eve services emphasized the role of Jews in rejecting Jesus and causing his execution. Perhaps that would be sufficient motivation for a Bohemian peasant with nothing better to do to find a Jewish shop and throw a brick through the window, or maybe even throw that brick through the head of an unsuspecting Jewish pedestrian. With such a testimony by the self-identified followers of Jesus Christ, is it any wonder that Jews have had little motivation to learn about the very real, and very Jewish, Jesus?
Believe it or not, there really are customs among Chasidim for Christmas Eve.
(originally published on First Fruits of Zion, December 24, 2015)
Given that Christmas Eve was a favorite time for raids, pogroms, and marauding, certain practices developed in Jewish communities as a result. Some of them were pragmatic, a matter of survival; others were symbolic, to show disdain for the enemies of the Jewish people. May we never see those dark times again.
