    Gaza Lecture

    I went to a lecture yesterday with details about the history of Palestine, Israel, and the Gaza Strip. It was eye opening and I had no idea Gaza is about the size of Detroit. It is heavily populated by Palestinians that elected Hamas to run it. When you hear the history, you understand the hate among the Palestinians and Jews. Israel has tried to extend olive branches only to have Hamas refuse them and shoot rockets into Israel. The United Nations and wars among the people there have created this mess. Palestine has been basically dissolved into the small Gaza Strip after it took the land from Israel and had to give it back with the accords after WWII. The lector did not go back to the origins which is Abraham blessing Isaac the Jewish nation instead of Ishmael the Arab nation. Even though Ishmael was the eldest son, but the son of a maidservant Hagar. Abraham and Sarah were married and Isaac was born when she was old. In any case, the promised land is the controversy and I believe it belongs to the Jews. Gaza is an attempt for the Palestinians to hang on to the Holy Land. Thus, only peace will occur in the end of times.
