What Have We Learned After 150 Days of War?

Writing at The Christian Post, Yael shares how the world must stop falling for the deceitfulness of Hamas’ tactics and realize that Israel is the only nation that is standing for life, freedom, and peace:

As people of faith, we stand together, and believe the words of the prophet Isaiah: “‘No weapon forged against you will prevail, and you will refute every tongue that accuses you. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and this is their vindication from me,’ declares the LORD” (Isaiah 54:17).

Now, however, it’s time for the rest of the Western world to wake up. It’s time to recognize the truth and acknowledge the many ways that Hamas is effectively manipulating the West. It’s time to end this cycle of deceit.

Since the beginning of this war, Hamas has been manipulating the West in three critical areas. First, every day Hamas releases the number of Palestinian casualties — often within minutes of a reported attack by the Israel Defense Forces (IDF). How can that be? How can they be getting accurate information that quickly? The answer is: they can’t.

It took the Israeli government weeks to accurately identify those killed in the October 7 attack and provide an accurate number to the world. Israel even downgraded the number when the original was found to be inaccurate.
