TRENDING:

Pro-Palestinian Protesters Are On A Collision Course With God

Robert Gottselig

(Toronto, Canada) — Last week, a video was posted on X that showed a Palestinian man visiting the Auschwitz Birkenau Holocaust Memorial Museum, where he called on Jews to return to the site where they belong.

Just read this man’s demonic hatred for the Jewish people, “From these ‘Ghettos’ [concentration camps] from which the Zionists came, [I say] Allah have mercy on all the Palestinians and our martyrs and free Palestine! Allah willing, we will be free from you, and you will return to the [concentration] camp or to your countries, and any [other] place, as long as you leave our place [Palestine]. Because this is our land, and you belong here [Auschwitz]. This is your place of origin. You left the camps, these Ghettos… Long live Palestine!”

“You belong here,” “This is your place of origin,” “Long live Palestine”—How disgusting is that? While he is not among those who deny the Holocaust, he is among those who wish the Jewish people dead. That demonic hatred is growing in our world at an alarming rate.

Just this past weekend, I attended a pro-Palestinian encampment. Of course, we’ve been hearing primarily about those in the United States, and I hate to report to you today, but they’re here in Canada as well.

I attended an encampment at the University of Toronto’s St. George campus on King’s College Circle. There were signs posted all over saying, “This Is The Intifada,” “End The Genocide,” “Free Palestine,” and a large banner saying, “From The River To The Sea.”

Of course, their mantra, “From The River To The Sea, Palestine Will Be Free,” speaks of the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea. Look at a map and ask yourself, where does Israel fit in that? Simply, it doesn’t. They’re calling for the elimination of the State of Israel and, ultimately, the elimination of the Jewish people.

They were calling Israel an apartheid state, and there was even a poster that said, “Glory To All Martyrs.” I can’t believe that here in Canada, we would allow people to glorify the killing of Jews and spread evil disinformation about Israel. I thought to myself, “Pinch me! I must be in a bad dream.” I couldn’t believe what I was witnessing with my own eyes. 

People all over the encampment were proudly wearing masks and keffiyehs—those terrorist neck scarves that Yasser Arafat made popular—as they boldly condemned Israel and called for their further destruction.

One of the organizers, a day or two before we were there this past Saturday, shared what their purpose was for the encampments and a list of their demands:

Hi, I’m Erin. I am one of the organizers and spokespeople for UT Occupied Palestine. We are currently at King’s College Circle at the University of Toronto, standing in front of our encampment that we’ve set up and we’ve renamed the People’s Circle for Palestine.

Question: Can you tell me what your demands are?

Yeah, absolutely. So we have three core demands. The first is for the university to disclose all of their investments. The second is for the university to divest from Israeli apartheid. And the third is for the university to terminate all partnerships with Israeli academic institutions.

Question: So you deal with other universities that are in Israel?

Yes.

Question: Do you know, specifically, what sort of business dealings or what universities?

Yeah, so the University of Toronto has an active partnership with Hebrew University, which is in occupied Palestine. That partnership is focused on AI technology, which we know AI is being used to target Palestinians. And so that particular relationship is really egregious. But we are asking the university to end all partnerships with Israeli academic institutions, because those ultimately are helping enable the ongoing genocide that’s happening.

Question: How long are you prepared to stay here?

Yeah, so we are joining students from across North America. As far as I know, there’s been 120 encampments at universities across the US. There’s also one happening at the University of British Columbia, one at McGill, [and] now one here at the University of Toronto.

But it’s important to note that these didn’t start now. You know, students have been demanding divestment from Israel since 2006 at the University of Toronto. We ourselves held an occupation of Simcoe Hall, Meric Gertler, our president’s office a few weeks ago, and we were met with a nonanswer, which is why we decided to escalate and be here today.

We’ll continue to make these demands until the university divest from Israeli apartheid.

We hear the buzzwords “Israel apartheid,” “occupied Palestine,” that Israel is “committing genocide,” and so on. I’ll tell you, it should make us weep that these young people in our country have been brainwashed into believing a lie like that.

Sadly, these universities in our country have become nothing more than a cesspool for antisemitism to breed, with very little being done about it.

While I was there, I took the time to talk to a few people. Most had no knowledge of the truth about Israel—and most of them didn’t want to know either.

I met a journalist who I thought had some common sense, but as I was sharing some of the things about Israel with her, she looked at me and said, “Ah, that’s just a bunch of rhetoric,” and she walked away.

There were, however, a few people who stood with Israel. I was grateful for that and had an opportunity to encourage them.

At one point, I was able to talk to a police officer. I highlighted to him that if I were to organize something like this calling for the elimination of the LGBT community, I’d wind up in jail within 24 hours. The police officer nodded, but then he shrugged his shoulders as if to say, “Well, there’s really nothing that I can do about what’s happening here.” How sad is that? 

The University of Toronto isn’t the only university in Canada to have these shameful encampments. No, they’re also set up at UCB in Vancouver and McGill in Montreal. Where are our leaders? Where are our Mayors? Why are they not putting an end to all of this?

You can call this free speech, as some are saying, but when you are blatantly calling for the elimination of the Jewish people, you’ve gone way too far. I say enough with his demonic hatred. Come on, Canada, you’re better than this! It’s time to wake up.

The Jewish people just remembered the horrors of the Holocaust only a couple of days ago. Oftentimes, people wonder, “Where was God in all of that?” Well, I can assure you, friends, that He was there. Just as we read in Isaiah 63:9, “In all their affliction He was afflicted…”

I have no doubt in my mind that God must have wept over those atrocities. One day, He’s going to judge those who committed those demonic crimes.

For those who persecute His chosen people today thinking that there’s no God taking note and going to come to Israel’s rescue, let me read to you what the king of Kings, Israel’s Messiah, Jesus, has to say when he returns one day at a second coming. This is when He comes back to save the remnant of his brethren, the Jewish people, physically and spiritually.

In Matthew 25:31-44, we read, “When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory. All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats. And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left. Then the King will say to those on His right hand, ‘Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.’ Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink? When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You? Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren [the Jewish People], you did it to Me.’”

“Then He will also say to those on the left hand,” the verse continues, and this is a warning to the world, “‘Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels: for I was hungry and you gave Me no food; I was thirsty and you gave Me no drink; I was a stranger and you did not take Me in, naked and you did not clothe Me, sick and in prison and you did not visit Me.’ “Then they also will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to You?’ Then He will answer them, saying, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.’ And these will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”

There you have it. Judgment is coming one day. Woe to those who say that Jews should be returned to the ovens. Woe to those who say the Jews should be eliminated from the river to the sea. God says that those who do such things are on a collision course with Him—and they will lose for all eternity.

Christian Leaders Call For A ‘Day of Prayer’ For Israel In Churches This Sunday

Franklin encouraged people to participate in the day of prayer, saying, “This is a critical period in Israel’s history. We look around us and see antisemitism raging. We see Iran’s recent attack. We remember the brutal slaughter of over 1,200 Jewish people on Oct. 7 and see 133 hostages still being held by Hamas, used as human shields to protect their wicked leadership."

Slumbering Preachers Need To Wake Up To The Reality That The King Is Coming

Bible prophecy is given as a light shining in a dark place (2 Peter 1:19). Talking about it should not instill fear in the Christian; rather, provide confirmation that the “blessed hope” is ever nearer and the time ever shorter to snatch people from the fire.
