Is Peace Possible? Understanding the Current Middle East Crisis

by | Apr 15, 2014 | Charisma Archive

One of Israel’s greatest Prime Ministers, Golda Meir, once said, “Peace will come when the Arabs love their children more than they hate us.”

Since Israel’s statehood in 1948, Israel has endured repeated wars and attacks.  They have constantly faced the threat of a hostile Arab world that wants it gone.  Thousands of their young soldiers have been killed in this struggle for their survival and thousands more citizens have perished in terrorist attacks and suicide bombings.

The rise to power of radical Islamic groups like the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, particularly given their historic ties to Hamas and their hatred of Israel, coupled with continued terrorist activity from Hamas and Hezbollah, and the looming specter of Iran’s nuclear weapons program have created the greatest threat to Israel’s continued existence they have faced since the Yom Kippur war of 1973.

Long-time allies such as Great Britain and the United States have recently shifted position and have taken a more adversarial role toward Israel, pressing for concessions of land for peace.  Keep in mind that all of the concessions made to date have only been met with demands for more, and have resulted not in peace but in continued hostility.

The lessons of the last century should have taught us that appeasement never works, but it appears that our generation is intent on learning that lesson at Israel’s expense.  Truth be told, it is highly unlikely if not impossible that any plan for peace engineered or imposed by man will succeed. 

The only viable plan for peace that WILL succeed is God’s peace plan, and that plan is through the Prince of Peace, Yeshua – Jesus the Messiah.  Only when He is invited in and hearts are changed can Arab and Jew, Israeli and Palestianian live in true peace with one another.
