Five teenage Palestinian boys were on their way home after midnight Monday morning, after spending the evening at a swimming pool in the village of Beit Sira west of Ramallah, celebrating the recent arrival from Qatar of friends who were to spend the summer in their hometown of Beit Ur al-Tahta.The COGs believe in various prophetic speculations insisting that the State of Israel will soon be conquered by Europe. But the violent death of a young Palestinian has no meaning to them in discerning when Christ will return so events like this are ignored.
However, their fun came to a halt when an Israeli soldier began showering the car with live fire, killing 15-year-old Mahmoud Raafat Badran and seriously injuring four others.... (Ma'an News Agency, June 22, 2016.)
The COGs teach the incorrect dogma of British Israelism and consequently they incorrectly view Jews as relatives of whites Americans and white British. The predominantly white COG leaders and members view Jews as white like themselves even though the Jewish community has existed long before the idea of races as we know it were even conceived of. The COGs impose this identity upon the Jews refusing to take into account how they view themselves. But the COGs do not view Palestinians as white like themselves so a tragic event like this is ignored. It can't be used to prop up their preconceived dogmas. We should not be so selective in our compassion.
The COGs say that there is no hope of peace until Christ returns. The COGs' teachings wishes to rob even the hope that anything can be done to bring peace to those who suffer in the Holy Land.
May peace soon come to the Holy Land.
