Recently, I became aware of a plan to protest against the Zionist state of Israel scheduled outside of the Temple Beth El Israel in Saint Lucie West, Florida. A CraigsList.org ad posted by an individual organizing the protest reads:
“15/15: May 15th Palestine March (outside Temple Beth El Israel) We invite all humanitarians and activists against the Zionist state of Israel to join us outside the property of The Temple Beth El Israel located at 551 Southwest Bethany Drive, Port St. Lucie. We we gather around 9am and this will be a representation of the sit in protests that will comense globally at all Israeli Embassy world wide! Stand for the people of Palestine and against the crimes against humanity perpetuated by the Government of Israel and the zionists. This will be a peaceful protest to awaken the public to the lie that has brought the unjust destruction of 1000s of Palestinian lives! If you need more information please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.”
Will you join me in standing with Israel & Jewish member of Temple Beth El Israel Sunday morning? I know that Sunday morning is a difficult time to meet because most Christians attend church services Sunday morning, and I’m not asking you to miss your church service. However, if it doesn’t conflict with your church service, will you stand with me? I will be at Temple Beth El Israel from 8:30 – 9:30 AM Sunday morning. Again, if this doesn’t conflict with your church service, please join me Sunday morning. Possible Sign Suggestions:
- I Stand with Israel
- Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem
- God Gave Israel the Land
- God Will Bless Those Who Bless Israel
For a discussion on why we should support Israel, see an article written by my dad, Pastor Chuck Longworth entitled Why Should We Support Israel?
“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, ‘May they prosper who love you. Peace be within your walls, Prosperity within your palaces.’” Psalm 122:6,7.
