It was just two weeks ago that the Lebanese provided a hero’s welcome for some freed terrorists. Such is the moral depravity of the Lebanese that they welcome back the scum who did this (from the Jerusalem Post):
In 1979, Kuntar and three other gunmen made their way in a rubber dinghy from Lebanon to Nahariya, five miles south of the Lebanese border. There, in a hail of gunfire and exploding grenades, they killed a policeman who stumbled upon them, then burst into the apartment of Danny Haran, herding him and his four-year-old daughter out of the house at gunpoint to the beach below, where they were killed.
Brave man, that Kuntar. Killing a four-year-old girl. Who obviously posed a dire threat to him.
There is no excuse for such barbarity, and shame of the Israelis for letting Kuntar and others of his ilk go. God will deal with them, in God’s time if not in ours. Which brings us back to the Lebanese. Lest there be any confusion about what they are, let it cease. The Lebanese are complicit in the murder of children and other innocents. They lack spine; they are not to be pitied, only prevented from harming any human beings.
The next time someone whines about a “Cedar Revolution,” remind him of who the Lebanese truly are: modern-day Philistines, but without their courage. And, as mentioned, God will deal with those who oppress Zion, even if we do not in the here and now. From Ezekiel 25:
15″Thus says the Lord GOD: Because the Philistines acted revengefully and took vengeance with malice of soul to destroy in never-ending enmity, 16therefore thus says the Lord GOD, Behold, I will stretch out my hand against the Philistines, and I will cut off the Cherethites and destroy the rest of the seacoast. 17I will execute great vengeance on them(AO) with wrathful rebukes. Then they will know that I am the LORD, when I lay my vengeance upon them.”
Unbelievers will scoff, and ask, “how does God allow such evil to exist? Why does he not strike down Lebanon?”
The answer is, he will. In his time, if not in ours. If you think that God does not keep a watchful eye over Zion, how else to explain the Jews’ continued existence as a people of Torah? How else to explain the modern success of the world’s only Jewish state, surrounded as she is by implacable and evil enemies?
The Psalmist captured it, in Psalm 121:4: Behold, he who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.
