    One of the three dead Jewish teens was a U.S. citizen. Not one word has come out of the White House regarding this atrocity. Israelis protested, but peaceably without violence after the teens' bodies were discovered. It would not greatly surprise me if it is found that Palestinians were responsible for Khdeir's abduction and death, to foment further uprising among the Palestinians.

    OK, now let the anti-Israeli faction on the board begin howling about "Christian Zionism." But this story needs to be discussed in light of biblical prophecy.

    OK, I'm genuinely perplexed. How could this have anything to do with biblical prophecy?

    This story is one giant mess. Why can't people stop being stupid and killing each other? But ultimately they need the gospel, not more laws, government or bombs, only the gospel can change that area or anywhere else for that matter.

    No you're not. You know what it applies to biblical prophecy. But being amillennial, you refuse to see it.

    I'm glad to know you can read my thoughts. :rolleyes:

    Also, I'm not amill.

    And I'm not a liar. I was asking a 100% honest question.

    Anyway.... forget I asked.

    Sorry to offend. I misread the intent of the question. My apologies. Not the place to debate whether Israel has a place in God's plans or not anyway. That belongs in Baptist debate. If you don't agree with my statement, simply saying so is sufficient.

    No offense taken.

    You asked for this to be discussed "in light of biblical prophecy" I was just wanting some clarification on what exactly you meant. I know your eschatology and your views on Israel. I was just confused on how a couple dead teenagers, tragic as it is, relates to prophecy in your view.

    How man Palestinian children or teenagers were killed the same day by Israeli soldiers?

    Seems to me that all such deaths of children and teenagers, regardless of where they are from are tragic.
