Christians should not support 🇮🇱
If you do you are supporting persecution of our brethren
You think they care or respect us? 😂 Look how they treat our Holy sites
They prevent us from celebrating our holidays
A lot of Americans support Israel because of the notion of “Judeo-Christian values” however the term was popularized during the Cold War to suggest a unified American identity opposed to communism.
Scholars and theologians questioned the theological validity of the Judeo-Christian notion saying that it is basically an invention of American politics. Think about it, hardly any other Christian country has this notion! I personally can’t think of one.
This is also a tactic to convince the American evangelical public that they should support Israel, and therefore it’s justified that the US sends over billions of dollars in aid
Now here is the Biblical aspect. The Biblical Israel & the state of Israel are 2 completely different things. The state of Israel has a beginning point, May 1948. One is a political entity, & the other is a geographical place promised, given, & REPOSSESSED by God
As a Copt, our clergy bans us from visiting Jerusalem
More on Zionists not letting us practice freely. And this is supposedly a “democracy” 🥴 Easter is one of our MAJOR holidays. We celebrate after fasting for 40+ days and it is a remembrance of Christ.
The Church of the Holy Sepulchre is THE CHURCH that Christians from all over the world, from all denominations make a pilgrimage to visit. It hosts Jesus’ tomb so you can imagine how sacred it is to us. To have Israel hang it over our heads like that is disgusting.
They really think they can disrespect us and get away with it
This happened just last year. Again no respect for our places of worship
