(No) Peace in the Middle East

This short film offers a simple answer to a complex question: Why has there not been/ will there not be peace in the Middle East?  Simple answers often require a lot of qualifiers, but this actually does a pretty good job.

We could of course turn this into a discussion of Bible prophecy.  There has never been peace in this region, and the Jews have been, are and will be despised by all nations.  When Pilate said he did not want this man’s blood (Jesus) on his hands, the Jewish mob cried out “Let his blood be on our hands, and on our children.”  It’s hard to not make the correlation between that event and the destruction of the Temple in A.D. 70.  The first century diaspora is why there were 10 million European Jews in 1936.  The Holocaust resulted in 100,000 Jews immigrating to the United States, and more importantly the creation of the Jewish state described in the video.  I find it hard to miss that hand of God in all this.

Many students of prophecy also believe there will be a miraculous peace brought to the Middle East by the Anti-Christ.  Now we are really stirring the pot.  Like I said, good video.
