AskFOI—How does Israel respond to it’s own radicalism? (@13:40)

Maybe you’ve heard it said that regarding radicalism, Israel is no different than other Middle Eastern countries. The error of this thinking is quickly revealed when one simply examines the facts of how Israel responds to violence carried out by its own people.

“What makes Israel different from its neighbors is the way the country responds corporately to these issues. Israel doesn’t reward the acts of extremism or terrorism; it doesn’t promise them heaven, money, or virgins. Instead, it prosecutes them according to the law of the land.”

We want to know what you think about this issue. Does Israel respond any differently to its own extremism in comparison with other Middle Eastern countries? Read the blog post and share your thoughts.

Apples of Gold–”Always prepared” (@18:56)

“Recently one of our neighbors came to ask us many questions about our faith. She said, “I want to know how you came to believe in Him.”

“I was delighted to give her my testimony, and I encouraged her to visit us often.”

“She continued to visit, and each time she asked if I knew others who believed in the Lord and how they had come to believe in Him. One day I asked, “Are you here to draw closer to the Lord or to investigate me?”

“She answered, very sincerely, “I am truly interested in knowing how you came to your faith in the Lord. I would like to know the one who brought you to this faith.””
