“Woe to those who call good evil and evil good, who put darkness for light and light for darkness.” Isaiah 5:20

Listening to the condemnation of Israel during the past four weeks one would think they were the personification of evil. From the UN, to the USA to France to the UK, protests against His chosen people, statements calling on “all people in the world with a conscience” to stand against the aggression, denounce Israel’s practices and ensure Palestinians their legitimate rights, categorizing the war an ‘assault’ on Gaza - “a crime against humanity. Hamas remains the victim, seldom the aggressor, the instigator, provoker or assailant. Hamas, the persecuted victim of the Zionist racists.

And as of today, our president and seemingly the rest of the world, has declared war on ISIS. ISIS - violent extremist, brutally killing and oppressing any and all who come in their way. ISIS leadership called dangerous, delusional. British Muslims have united to "vehemently condemn" the militant group ISIS while reports suggest that some participants on Islamist chat forums have been drawing up "hit lists" of prominent British Jews. Demonstrators outside the Israeli embassy in London have fought with police and tried to storm the building on at least three separate occasions. Banners have waved in Trafalgar Square which boast, “We are Hamas”.

Extremist, depraved, radically hate filled terrorist, absolutely; so how can there be such a difference of opinion between the two radical Muslim organizations. I fail to see the difference between Hamas or ISIS or the laundry list of other Muslims who are living out their faith as taught by their holy book, the Quran. I don’t understand until I open our HOLY BOOK, The Word of God and read:

“They make shrewd plans against Your people, And conspire together against Your treasured ones. They have said, “Come, and let us wipe them out as a nation, That the name of Israel be remembered no more.” For they have conspired together with one mind; Against You they make a covenant:…” Psalm 83:4

“They said in their hearts, “We will crush them completely!” They burned every place where God was worshiped in the land.” Psalm 74:8

“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.” Ephesians 6:12

And now, I understand   
... the whole world lies under the sway of the wicked one" 1 John 5:19
