I can’t believe it I just can’t believe it!

No matter what news channel I watched over this past month, its full of stories of protests on college campuses, big city streets and at the nations capitol. Protests full of hate. I just can’t believe that so many people hate their fellow human beings.

The coverage all centers on the October 7th invasion by a group called Hamas into Israel where they butchered young, and old and took a couple hundred hostages including several Americans.

According to a published story by the Associated Press on October 10th, “Hamas won a 2006 parliamentary election and in 2007 violently seized control of the Gaza strip from the internationally recognized Palestinian Authority. The Palestinian Authority, dominated by rival Fatah Movement, administers semi-autonomous areas of the Israel occupied West Bank.

“The group has vowed to annihilate Israel and has been responsible for many suicide bombings and other deadly attacks on civilians and Israel soldiers.”

We even have several members of congress that spew out hate while standing on their soapboxes. The bad part of this is that they have followers chanting hate and death to not only Jews, but to us Infidels.

I am running scared. We have allowed our kids to be indoctrinated at institutes of higher learning. We have accepted students into our country who do not share our values and who offer nothing but death and violence in our land. We have opened our borders to who ever wishes to come and bring harm to our great country. Will I have to sleep with a loaded firearm under my pillow?

Is the federal government able to see that we live in safety? Even the President leaves some doubt in my mind. Plus what is coming from President Biden and several members of Congress makes me wonder if we can live in safety. The day after the October 7th attack on Israel, President Biden, said among other things to support Israel, “We will not ever fail to have their backs.”

Then a week later he softened his words with, “There needs to be a path to a Palestinian state.” The next day, Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib from Michigan wrote to the president saying; “your war and destruction only approach has opened my eyes and many Palestinian Americans and Muslims Americans like me, we will remember where you stood.”

The House passed a resolution supporting Israel and condemning Hamas. But fifteen House progressives refused to vote for it and nine more voted against the resolution.

We have allowed our country to be filled with hate and our Christian values have been put on the shelf.

“A man with hate in his heart may sound pleasant enough, but don’t believe him; for he is cursing you in his heart. Though he pretends to be so kind, his hatred will finally come to light for all to see.”

—Proverbs 26:24-26, The Living Bible.
