What Did You do at Summer Camp?

This month in America, thousands and thousands of kids head off to church camp.  While there they will learn camp songs, arts and crafts, swimming and other outdoor activities. Also they will most likely learn some Christian moral lessons about how not to lie, cheat, kill and also how to honor your parents, teachers, police, etc...

Meanwhile in Gaza there are thousands of kids heading to summer camp, but they have a much different experience planned.

In a propaganda video released this week by Hamas's military wing -- the Izz Al-Din Al-Qassam Brigades -- and translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), children are seen partaking in military drills and radical indoctrination against Israel while attending the "Vanguards of Liberation: Soldiers of Jerusalem" camp.

The children are trained by mujahideen -- or jihadist soldiers -- in "various skills," such as hand-to-hand combat, military drills -- many of which feature the desecration of the Israeli flag -- and weapons training. 

"We are in need of strong and powerful heroes in order to implement the words of Allah: '(The companions) are tough against the infidels and merciful among themselves,'" a masked counselor is heard saying. 

"We concentrate on motivational instruction and religious education, through lectures in which we motivate the students, to wage jihad, for the sake of Allah, and we instill love for Allah and His Prophet in the souls of our sons."

According to an unnamed camp official, the camp focuses on "providing a sound religious and ideological education, in order to build an able and unique generation of powerful servants of Allah, in an ideological, religious and military sense, a generation that will liberate Jerusalem and the rest of the land, Allah willing."

Posters of suicide bombers line the camp, to serve as an inspiration for the Gazan youth. A second unnamed camp official said the images are of those "who sacrificed their souls as martyrs in jihad for the sake of Allah, leaders who will be their role models, on the path to liberation and martyrdom...without fear, with force and steadfastness."

Today in the news there is a headline that a Saudi delegation told Israel that Israel needs to solve the Palestinian situation.

Really?  How blind, deaf and dumb does the world need to be to understand that Jews can't fix the hatred that has been seared in Arab-Muslim hearts?

Sadly, the Bible says they will get a lot worse before anything gets better.

War, rumors of war, race fighting race and nation fighting nation will continue right up unto the very end of time as humans know it.  Jesus will then come and smash the toes made of iron and clay and the entire statue representing human governments will collapse in a heap.  And then Jesus will set up his kingdom on earth and will rule and reign for 1000 years.

In the meantime, we need to keep watching for the focus of the world to be on Israel, Jerusalem and Jews....and to watch for the world PEACE to come up in those discussions.  This too is a sign of how close we are to the Antichrist showing up to sign a peace agreement, which he will break half way through, with Israel and it's enemies.

Jesus said,
36 If he comes suddenly, do not let him find you sleeping. 37 What I say to you, I say to everyone: ‘Watch!’”
