There are 22 Arab Countries versus 1 Jewish State of Israel.
The Arabs Countries far outnumber Israel with 64 times as many people, 760 times as much land, and 10 times as much GDP.
Overall the world’s Muslim population is even so much larger with 50 majority-Muslim countries and 1.6 billion Muslims.
Some moderate Muslim or Arab countries are friendlier and have peace treaties with Israel, such as Egypt and Jordan, and others like Saudi Arabia are cooperating with Israel against a common Iranian threat.
However, it is no secret that many other Arab nations and especially Iran would like to see Israel wiped off the map with a total genocide of the Jewish people (just 70 years since the Holocaust).
This last week alone in Israel there were over 150 terrorist attacks (including shootings, stabbings, stonings, firebombs, and more)!
To the west, just last year in 2014, there were over 4,500 missiles fired by Hamas-controlled Gaza indiscriminately into Israel.
To the north, Hezbollah is estimated to have 100,000 rockets pointed at Israel.
To the northeast, ISIS is menacing Israel with possible chemical weapons and even nukes if they get their hands on them.
To the east, Iran is threatening Israel with ongoing development of nukes and ballistic missiles.
Many Christians and Jews clearly see the Biblical underpinnings for the threats to Israel and want to protect the Holy Land.
One Central American, Christian lady told me today that she and all the people in her church love Israel and want it to be protected.
She said many, many people are dissatisfied with the current state of pullback from the Middle East and what was always the iron-clad support for Israel.
Further, the United Nations has been swayed by the numbers against Israel for decades–just last year alone, there were 20 resolutions singling out Israel versus 1 resolution against Syria, even though the war in Syria in the last 4 years has killed more than 10 times the number of those killed in the entire Israel-Palestinian conflict.
While many extremists falsely try to portray themselves as the underdog in this fight against Israel, the facts speak for themselves, and the Bible is clear–in the end, David does beat Goliath. 😉
