SOMETHING MORE DANGEROUS THAN EVEN THE HAMAS
For Israel - winning in Gaza may mean losing its land.
As Israel continues to launch air attacks against the Hamas terror group in the Gaza Strip, and masses its forces for a possible land assault, we who love Israel and the God of Israel need heaven to guide us in our prayers.
While we may, naturally enough, wish for an Israeli victory in Gaza, such an outcome could have a dangerous downside. It will not lead - in the current reality - to the return of that land to Jewish control, but to its likely handover to the PLO's Mahmoud Abbas and his Palestinian Authority.
With the "moderate" Abbas back in full power, the way will be open for implementing US President George W. Bush's "Two State Solution" - which means the division of God's land for the creation of a Palestinian state out of Gaza, Judea and Samaria.
Once that Muslim-oriented new Arab state exists, it may well become, with the help of Iran, Syria, Hezbollah, Al-Qaida and many other Islamic groups, a new Gaza-type launching pad for the final destruction of what is left of Israel.
May the Lord show us how to pray in accordance with His will. (Jan Willem van der Hoeven, Director International Christian Zionist Centre.)
