Diplomatic row follows criticism of US secretary of state’s efforts to broker Middle East peace deal reported in Israeli newspaper.
American efforts to broker a peace deal in the Middle East were engulfed in a diplomatic row on Tuesday when the US state department lambasted a senior Israeli minister for “offensive and inappropriate” comments describing John Kerry as obsessive and messianic.
Defence minister Moshe Ya’alon, an ally of Israeli prime minister Binyamin Netanyahu, dismissed Kerry’s efforts to pursue a peace deal in private conversations with US and Israeli officials which were reported in an Israeli newspaper.
“Secretary of state John Kerry – who arrived here determined, and who operates from an incomprehensible obsession and a sense of messianism – can’t teach me anything about the conflict with the Palestinians,” Ya’alon was quoted as saying in Yedioth Ahronoth, Israel’s biggest-selling paper.

What did Moshe Ya’alon means with “messianism”? According to Free Online Dictionary, there are three definitions to the messianism, namely:
1. Belief in a messiah.
2. Belief that a particular cause or movement is destined to triumph or save the world.
3. Zealous devotion to a leader, cause, or movement.
My take: In the case of John Kerry, I would suggest point 2 and 3 even heavily leaning to point 3. For as a believer in the only Messiah, I find that hard to believe. I would even suggest that the word messianism in this particular case, be replaced with messiness!
A believer is Yeshua Messiah would know the length and the width of land grant heretofore known as the land of Israel and the city of Jerusalem which God call her as My City!
(Genesis 15:18-21) In the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates: The Kenites, and the Kenizzites, and the Kadmonites, And the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Rephaims, And the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Girgashites, and the Jebusites…
Let us review what God Almighty said concerning His Land!
Ezekiel 36:5 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Surely in the fire of my jealousy have I spoken against the residue of the heathen, and against all Idumea, which have appointed MY LAND into their possession with the joy of all their heart, with despiteful minds, to cast it out for a prey… (38:16) And thou shalt come up against MY PEOPLE of Israel, as a cloud to cover the land; it shall be in the latter days, and I will bring thee against MY LAND, that the heathen may know me, when I shall be sanctified in thee, O Gog, before their eyes.
Joel 1:6 For a nation is come up upon MY LAND, strong, and without number, whose teeth are the teeth of a lion, and he hath the cheek teeth of a great lion…(3:2) I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for MY PEOPLE and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted MY LAND.
Granted, for a long while, the people of Israel were dispersed into all directions. Only a few remained in the land. But that did not mean the Israelis lost title to the land which were granted to them since their forefather Abraham (then Abram). God promised to bring them back to their RIGHTFUL INHERITANCE and they did!
Isaiah 35:10 And the ransomed of the LORD shall return, and come to Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away…
And the Lord God made good His promise and here is a short video of the rebirth of the nation of Israel in the their own land Eretz Yisrael followed by a short history of Israel nation:

REBIRTH OF THE JEWISH STATE. Here is the true historical fact:
In 1894, Alfred Dreyfus, a Jewish captain in the French army, was falsely accused of selling military secrets; after a show trial he was imprisoned in solitary confinement on Devil’s Island. Anti-semitic mobs chanted “Death to the Jews.” A year later, a notorious bigot named Karl Leuger was elected mayor Vienna. In 1986, appalled by these two events and fearing they signalled a dramatic worsening in anti-semitism in Europe, a young journalist named Theodor Herzl published a book called “The Jewish state”, in which he argued that, to free themselves from oppression and violence, the Jewish people needed to regain political independence. In 1897, he founded the World Zionist Congress.
With the defeat of the Ottoman empire in World War1, the British government obtained a mandate to govern Israel, then called by its Latin name, Palestine. In 1917 the British government issued the Balfour Declaration, claiming it would “look with favor…on the establishment of a national home for the Jewish people.” Throughout the inter-war period the Zionist movement gained momentum, building farms and kibbutzim, founding new cities, starting schools, hospitals and universities. It also came to reflect the political divisions of the age, with Labor Zionism, inspired by socialism, competing with the more conservative Revisionist movement. Both right and left-wing Zionist groups organized political activism and youth groups in the diaspora; Hashomer Hatzair, Poale Zion and Betar would all contribute to the anti-fascist struggle.
Despite the increasing support it enjoyed it remained, the goal of a Jewish state remained a distant reality. Despite their official endorsement of the idea of a “national home for the Jewish people”, THE BRITISH GOVERNMENT TOOK NO STEPS TO HONOR THIS COMMITMENT; BY 1939 IT HAD REVERSED ITS POLICY COMPLETELY. As pan-Arab nationalists expressed increasingly violent hostility to Zionism, the British sought to appease them by placing a virtual ban on Jewish immigration. As a result of the 1939 white paper, hundreds of thousands of Jewish refugees were prevented from entering the British mandate.
In 1945 after the defeat of Nazi Germany, hundreds of thousands of Holocaust survivors remained homeless in displaced persons’ camps across Europe. When Jewish families tried to return to their former homes in Kielce, Poland, they were massacred. THE US AND UK HAD PASSED RACIST IMMIGRATION QUOTAS AGAINST JEWS. Their lives in Europe destroyed, thousands of desperate survivors tried to emigrate to the British mandate, where the Zionist movement was still struggling for a Jewish state. The British labelled these refugees ‘illegal immigrants’ and imprisoned them in internment camps on Cyprus and in Haifa.
Then, on 29 November 1947, the newly formed UN voted to partition the British mandate into two states- one Jewish, and one Arab. For the first time in two millennia, the Jewish people would be free.
While Jews celebrated the UN decision by dancing in the streets of Tel aviv, extreme Arab nationalists were furious, declaring they would never accept a Jewish state in the middle east, vowing to destroy it at birth and massacre its people. The armies of five countries now attacked a tiny country populated mainly with traumatized refugees; they expected a quick, sensational victory. Instead, the poorly armed young people of the Haganah and Palmach managed to defend the Jewish state and ensure its survival. One of those fighting was a Captain Abba Kovner of the Givati brigade, who had led the Vilna ghetto uprising against the Nazis.
The founding of Israel in 1948 marked the end of centuries of brutal oppression in which Jews in both Europe and the middle east were deprived of basic civil rights, treated at best as second-class citizens and subject to arbitrary racist violence. Now, with a nation-state and army, the Jewish people could defend themselves.
Am Yisrael Chai!

Do you believe in the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob? You can see very clearly that He is closing the book on this sinful world. But because of His loving nature, He wants to reduce the number of human beings from perishing, not the other way around. It is still not too late to seek His favor (grace)!
“THE LORD IS NOT SLACK CONCERNING HIS PROMISE, AS SOME MEN COUNT SLACKNESS; BUT IS LONG SUFFERING TO US-WARD, NOT WILLING THAT ANY SHOULD PERISH, BUT THAT ALL SHOULD COME TO REPENTANCE.” [2 Peter 3:9]
The way to be saved from the end time disasters and burning forever in the lake of fire, all He asks is, believe in His Son, Jesus Messiah, whom He had sent into the world to be the ultimate sin sacrifice. THERE IS NO OTHER WAY! This invitation is open to all: atheists, Judaism, Hindus, Muslims, Buddhists, for people of all walk and beliefs.
the voice of one crying in this perishing world.
