Christian Zionists such as Rev. John Hagee and Pat Robertson (who worship the State of Israel) believe it is “holy” because political Zionists lied and schemed to establish the racist State of Israel in 1948.
But political Zionists hate anything to do with Christ or Christianity. So paranoid are Zionists that they reportedly even removed the mathematical sign “+” from mathematics textbooks because it resembles the Christian cross.
But this is not what I wanted to say. I wanted to say that Zionists hate Christianity so much that they create modern-day martyrs. For example, in 1979, Zionists tortured and killed 66-year old Orthodox priest Father Philoumenos of Jacob’s Well. Orthodoxwiki records it thus:
The Saint experienced a martyric death at the hands of extremist Jewish Zionists who massacred him with an ax in the evening, while he was performing Vespers at the Well of Jacob where he lived as a loyal guardian of the Holy Places and centuries old way of life.
The week before his martyrdom, a group of fanatical Zionists had come to the monastery at Jacob’s Well, claiming it as a Jewish holy place and demanding that all crosses and icons be removed. Of course, the Saint pointed out that the floor upon which they were standing had been built by Emperor Constantine before 331 A.D. and had served as an Orthodox Christian holy place for sixteen centuries before the Israeli State was created, and had been in Samaritan hands eight centuries before that. The group left with threats, insults and obscenities of the kind which local Christians suffer regularly.
- “They burst into the monastery and with a hatchet butchered Archimandrite Philoumenos in the form of a cross. With one vertical stroke they clove his face, with another horizontal stroke they cut his cheeks as far as his ears. His eyes were plucked out. The fingers of his right hand were cut into pieces and its thumb was hacked off. These were the fingers with which he made the sign of the Cross. The murderers were not content with the butchering of the innocent monk, but proceeded to desecrate the church as well. A crucifix was destroyed, the sacred vessels were scattered and defiled, and the church was in general subjected to sacrilege of the most appalling type.”
The piecemeal chopping of the three fingers with which he made the Sign of the Cross showed that he was tortured in an attempt to make him renounce his Orthodox Christian Faith.
Nothing here makes me want to call Zionist Israel the Holy Land.
