Anyone who understands the history of the Jewish people in the world outside Israel (the Diaspora) should understand that the entities of the Holocaust and Israel are inseparable.

Lorna Simcox, Editor-in-Chief of “Israel, My Glory,” wrote that she and her husband attended an AIPAC reception where the keynote speaker talked about the many expulsions Jewish people endured, as well as the murderous pogroms and persecutions. He mentioned the growing anti-Semitism in Europe, especially in France. Had there been an Israel when Adolf Hitler rose to power, he said, the lives of 6 million innocent Jewish men, women, and children may hav been saved. He fully understood Jewish history.

“We need Israel,” he continued. When it becomes too dangerous to be Jewish in the world today, Jewish people now can return home, to the Holy Land.

Today anti-Semitism is flourishing. In 2019 in New York City alone, anti-Semitic hate crimes increased 63%. Holocaust survivors say they’re afraid to walk in the street. American universities have devolved into such cesspools of extremism and liberalism that they’re producing a new generation that ridicules the God of the Bible and opposes the Jewish state, the Jewish people–and evangelical Christianity.

The Diaspora is still a volatile, uncertain place for the children of Jacob.They have survived by God’s grace because He loves them and promises they will endure as long as the sun, moon and stars exist and the sea waves roar (Jeremiah 31:35-37). God keeps His promises regarding the peoples the world likes, as well as the peoples they don’t–and we can trust Him.
