Today, we can ask in a similar spirit, “What unites tens of millions worldwide around the Free Palestine cause?” Is it a heart of compassion for the needs of the Palestinians? Or is something else animating this global phenomenon?
We can call for justice and equity for both the Israelis and their Palestinian neighbors (as we should). But let us not do it at the expense of God’s covenantal promises to Israel.
But to use “Christ is King” as a political slogan, especially one with racist and anti-Semitic overtones, is to bring disgrace on that holy and beautiful name.

This unequal, unfair, unethical demonizing of Israel and the Jewish people must be confronted and exposed, especially when the nation faces yet another existential threat.
We’ve heard the endless cries of “Free Palestine!” in recent weeks, but there’s a variation on this theme that hits the nail on the head: “Free Palestine from Hamas!”
Rep. Mike Gallagher wrote, “According to a Harvard/Harris poll, 51% of Americans ages 18–24 believe Hamas was justified in its brutal terrorist attacks on innocent Israeli citizens on October 7.” Fifty-one percent? How can this be?
