They're setting off suicide bombs in Israel and killing many innocent people. The Lord said, "Thou shalt not kill," and He do not sympathize with those who shed innocent blood through acts of terrorism.
All men will receive a recompense for the works of their hands, whether those works were good or evil (Jeremiah 25:14).I yearn to comfort and reach all those caught up in this fierce and bloody conflict
Terrorists are not always little armed individuals or groups who commit atrocities. The biggest and worst terrorists are nations who commit atrocities with their armies, who wage what they call "war" but which differs from terrorism only in scale, for war is often terrorism on a massive scale, conducted with planes and tanks and bombs and tens of thousands of soldiers. Yet war is somehow considered more palatable by the world, for it is conducted by national terrorists, while terrorism is condemned because it is conducted by individual terrorists.
Palestinians from their land, it surrounds or occupies their cities, makes use of them as cheap labor, like the slaves of old, and humiliates or slaughters their men, women, and children. Israeli terrorism is both very evident and very quiet—evident in that it occupies Palestinian lands brazenly, and has for more than fifty years, and quiet in that many little acts of terrorism happen every day in out-of-the-way corners that make no news or no waves.
"Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called the children of God."
