If Moses had let the issue of the promised land become a matter for a referendum, we would have still walked around in the Sinai.
By Dr. Haim Shine, Israel Hayom.
Here are some interesting reflection by this doctor in a major Israel daily:
There is room for some real concern during these days of peace negotiations. Unfortunately, I do not share the belief that Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas and his buddies will do the dirty work for us by being obstinate and reject every offer, ensuring that another American attempt to score a diplomatic victory at our expense ends up directly in history’s recycling bin. Past attempts have exacted a heavy, bloody toll.
The American motivation to achieve a breakthrough is immense, because their global status is at an all-time low. Abbas and his friends are well aware of Israeli society’s Achilles heel, thanks to certain experts among us who have been advising the Palestinians, and meanwhile there are groups within Israeli society that seek to project an air of weakness and exhaustion.
Anyone who thinks that the idea of holding a national referendum on any future peace agreement will serve as an iron-clad defense against extensive territorial concessions is dead wrong.
If Moses had held a referendum on whether the Israelites should enter the Promised Land after 40 years in the desert, I am convinced that the majority of the people, including the leaders, would have been happy to remain in the desert, eat food that came from the sky without having to work for it, and enjoy the security of God’s pillar of cloud and pillar of fire.
If Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion had held a referendum on whether to declare the establishment of the State of Israel, knowing that the very declaration would bring about the deaths of thousands the very next day, most of the people would have likely preferred to put it off.

The Bible say that God can throw confusion into the camp of the enemy.
But for how long will God of the Bible, cover up for the conclusion in the Israeli society?
We know that God has called the Jews home to Zion, and that He will cleanse them from sin, and give them a new heart.
God is slow to anger. But He can burn with anger, even become angry with his own chosen people.
There still seems to be little interest in repenting, within broad sectors of the Israeli community.
The majority of the secular Jews are as fleshy and hedonistic as the majority of people in London and Paris. They share the same deep interest of closing their ears and heart, for the message of salvation in the Messiah only.
1 Kings 18:20-21
So Ahab sent word throughout all Israel and assembled the prophets on Mount Carmel. Elijah went before the people and said, ‘How long will you waver between two opinions? If the Lord is God, follow him; but if Baal is God, follow him.’
There are man lessons to be learned from the life of the the prophet Elijah. One of them, was his encounter with people who desired to sit on both sides of the table. To be little bit with God of the Bible, and little bit with the devil. If you what to please God of Israel, this its not possible. If will be a fatal deception.
The Israeli community must turn away from their idolatry of faith in Barack Hussein Obama, and turn towards their own God. At least if they want to escape judgment.
