Finance minister feels Israel is unsafe, and bids for “peace”.
t’s safer to be a Jew in New York than in Israel, Finance Minister Yair Lapid told Charlie Rose in New York Monday at Manhattan’s 92nd Street Y, courting controversy at home.
These comments piggybacked off remarks Lapid made on his Facebook page on September 30, following an interview on Channel 10, that he was “a little impatient” with people leaving Israel to live in Berlin.
In front of an audience on Monday he declared that he lives in Israel “because I want to live in a country that’s a place but also an idea.”
Back in Israel, coalition and opposition MKs criticized Lapid for the remark, saying he sounded like he was discouraging aliya.
“Lapid needs to decide if he’s for people leaving Israel or against it,” MK Yoni Chetboun (Bayit Yehudi) said. “Living in Israel isn’t about security, it’s about Zionism.”

Through the ages, many Jews have lived in rebellion against God of Israel. Many refused to listen to the warnings, did not repent, and perished.
Today, many Jews put their trust in a lot of material powers. Like their wealth and money, Obama or the military might of Israel.
Since millions of Jews have chosen to put their trust in hedonism and materialism, the logical consequence will be submission to worldliness and the approaching “final peace plan”.
There are still a remnant of God among the Jewish people, whose who still trust God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Many of them are settlers in the districts of Judea and Samaria, and hold on to their Zionist convictions.
A remnant will return, a remnant of Jacob will return to the Mighty God.
May all Messianic believers, pray that all Jews will see that the Messiah has come, and that He is about to return. That the blood of the Lamb of God do cleanse us from stains of sin, if we are willing to accept His death and resurrection.
May all Jews be saved, and found home in the Kingdom of heaven. Amen.
