Truth the mainstream media doesn't tell you about
Interesting but little-known fact: Use your computer to do a word search on the first 5 books of the Bible (Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy). These are also known as the Torah, or Books of Moses. You will find over 500 references to "Israel" in these first 5 books. You will find exactly ZERO occurrences of the words "Jew", "Jews", or "Jewish". In fact, the word "Jew" does not appear in the O.T. until you get to II Kings 6:16, where the Syrian king "drave the Jews out of Elath". It was a pretty simply matter in those days for the Syrians to push the Jews around. Would that it were so today!
This of course begs the question: How did the Jews ever get associated with Israel? It's not at all apparent from reading the Bible!
Also, consider this: Jesus said on at least two occasions that "He came not but for the lost sheep of the House of Israel." But then we read on John 7:1, "After these things Jesus walked in Galilee: for he would not walk in Jewry, because the Jews sought to kill him." So let's see now: Jesus came only for Israel, but he had to avoid the Jews like the plague. Hmmm....
