Statistics Bureau report shows 40 per cent of Israeli children at risk of falling below poverty line, compared with 20 per cent average in EU bloc.
Data published by the Central Bureau of Statistics (CBS) on Wednesday indicate that 31 per cent of Israelis are at risk of falling into poverty, compared with an average of 17 per cent in the European Union. Among the EU states, Spain and Greece had the highest percentage of citizens at risk of poverty – 20 per cent .
The CBS report, which analyzed statistics compiled in 2011, indicates a rise in the number of Israelis and Europeans who are at risk of poverty. In 2011, 31 per cent of Israelis were at risk of poverty, up from 26 per cent in 2001. Apart from Germany and Sweden, Israel recorded the sharpest increase in the number of citizens who are at risk of plunging into poverty when compared with the EU states.
Some Evangelical Christians have made Israel an idol. They glorify the Israeli society, and hail the Israeli government.
This is not Biblical.
The state of Israel was not re-birthed because of the righteousness or infallibility of the Jews. To the rather opposite, the Bible explain that the state of Israel was birthed for the sake of the name of the Holy God of Israel.
I want you to know that I am not doing this for your sake, declares the Sovereign Lord. Be ashamed and disgraced for your conduct, people of Israel!
As we approach the end, the moral decay of Israel will increase. Sodomy is already widely accepted, and 40.000 babies are killed in the womb of Jewish mothers every year. Israel is also exporting weaponry, who helps various dictatorships murder those who oppose freedom, liberty and human rights.
There will soon me fresh Messianic martyrs in Jerusalem.
Their bodies will lie in the public square of the great city – which is figuratively called Sodom and Egypt – where also their Lord was crucified.
Still we support Israel. With all her errors and faults. Simply because the restoration of the Jewish homeland is the best proof there is of a living God, the Holy One of Israel. Jews have a birthright to live in Judea and Samaria. Jerusalem is the not dividable capital of the state of Israel, God’s chosen city.
When the Messiah returns, both Jews and gentiles will face judgment. If you want to live, you have to surrender to Yeshua of Nazareth. If you are not cleansed in His blood, you will die in your sins and perish.
