Study: Half of the children in Israel have faced abuses

Half of the children in Israel have been victims of abuse, violence or neglect, a study published by Haifa University has revealed.

Child abuse seems to be a huge social problem inside the traumatized people of Israel.
Child abuse seems to be a huge social problem inside the traumatized people of Israel.

48.5 percent of Israeli children report physical, emotional or sexual attacks, neglectful behavior or other kinds of abuse.

The study also revealed that many abuse cases go unreported or untreated, creating a gap of hundreds of percentage points between the occurrence of abuse and awareness by professionals in the field.

Close to half of all Israeli children, 48.5 percent, reported having experienced one or more types of violence, classified into physical, emotional or sexual attacks, or neglectful behavior, among others.

Professors Rachel Wiesel and Zvi Itskovich, who direct the center for social research at Haifa University and led the study, noted that there was a gap between the number of child abuse victims who reported incidents of abuse to authorities and the number of children who directly indicated that they were abused.

“This is a seismic event,” said Israel National Council for the Child Director-General Dr. Yitzhak Kadman, who participated in the research.

“It turns out that what we knew until now was just the tip of the iceberg. All of the authorities and officials occupied by the issue will need to reassess in order to reach these clammed up or hidden children.”

My comment:

Israel is fare from perfect, and the Jewish people must not be glorified.

The homecoming of the Jews to Israel, is neither based on a divine premium for their faithfulness nor their righteousness. The Jews are home in Israel because of the eternal plan of bringing the Messiah back to Jerusalem, to face His own people.

 Ezekiel 36:32

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!

Israeli Arabs, and both religious and secular Jews, are not worse or better than others.

Inside Israel, those who have not been saved by the Messiah will eventually be caught in the same sins and crimes as the rest of non-believers.

There is only one solution, to all who seek true peace with God of the Bible. You have to search for the truth, and surrender to the “prince of peace”. Only He can save you, and give you a new life.  In His blood, there is forgiveness for all sins. This is the good news.

Yeshua of Nazareth is the Messiah. He is alive…!..We can expect any one else to come and save us. Lord: Please have mercy in the children of Israel. Amen.

  1. Amen! Please have mercy dear Lord. I know abuse like that, and I can tell you i’m now thankful. Maybe I can lead people to the Lord knowing what it is like, that it is not God’s fault. It is our sinful hearts. Many turn from God because of this abuse. But you know what? God is always there. To the Jew first and also to the non Jew. Jesus paid our debt. Don’t listen to satan who hates you and wants you to go to hell while you blame the wrong one, it is Satan who causes all the evil, and we sinful man are fallen because we rebelled against our God. Our Lord and Savior is not capable of evil. In the beginning He created everything and He said, “it is good”. He sent His Son to die in our place and conquer death. He is alive forever more, sitting at the right hand of the Father. This is awesome Love! Praise God!

    1. Dear Nannette

      Shalom, and love in Jesus.

      For the past two days, I have visited a colony of Jews. I listen to the conversations of not saved people. I told them that they have to be born again by the spirit of God, to be able to understand spiritual truth. The true “peace” is to have found the Messiah, and there is no other true peace. A not saved Jew has been born once. Just like a non saved gentile. The Torah is dry knowledge, if the message have not been revealed to you. Many Jews misunderstand the Torah, and keep on searching for the Messiah. Abuses of children is a grave sin, condemned by the Torah. Still many Jews do not understand.

  2. Who ever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to sin, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were drowned in the depth of the sea. Woe to the world because of offenses! For offenses must come, but woe to that man whom the offense comes! Matthew 18:6-7 This verse can apply to new born babes who are born again. Persecution of the bride of Christ. The Jews are gathered in unbelief, The Lord will turn back to them after the fullness of the Gentiles comes in (Romans 11:25-28) ,and all Israel will be saved. The World is messed up. Until a person is born again and receives the Holy Spirit they cannot understand, and only God can open their eyes. They have to be willing, we all have free will.

  3. Forgive me but the worse abuse of children comes from the Roman Catholic Church sexual abuse against children and homosexuality. Not only this, the worlds approval of abortion and partial birth abortion. They are even killing the newborns. They will be cast into hell first!
