War without End

Gaza is now under siege by Israel military in an attempt to stop the continued rocket attacks by Hamas. Hamas became the elected government power of Palestine in 2006 and has only escalated violence since then. According to Israel's minister of foreign affairs, from 2001 through May 2008, Hamas launched more than 3,000 Qassam rockets and 2,500 mortar attacks against Israeli targets. With organizations like the PLO headed by Yasser Arafat bent on destruction, peace is only a figurative dream.

Until the Lord returns, the words of Zechariah continue to ring true:

"And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it" (Zech12:3).

Israel,the burdensome stone to the nations.
