Here is a documentary that shows both the consequences of Israel’s rejection of her Messiah and, in contrast, the truth recorded in Scripture that others dare not tamper with and treat harshly God’s Chosen People, the Jews. Certainly God’s unconditional promises to His Chosen Ones are demonstrated in the true historical events.
In 1917 Britain made a pledge, known as the Balfour Declaration, to help the Jewish people establish a national homeland in the territory then called Palestine. Even the League of Nations awarded the British a mandate to carry out this plan. However, Britain failed to carry out its promise. As a result, the British government made inevitable the deaths of thousands of Jewish people who were turned away from the shores of Palestine in the 1930s and 1940s, and perhaps millions who could have escaped Hitler’s Holocaust during World War II. It is a fact of history that needs to be told, and its lessons need to be learned. Anti-Semitism wasn’t confined to Nazi Germany. Britain actually intended to establish a predominately Arab state in what was called Palestine. It was a miracle of God’s sovereign grace that Israel became a country in 1948 in a struggle against all odds. And Britain, formerly on whose empire the sun never set, became a nation beset with problems and has since lost much, if not most, of her former glory. There is even talk that in a number of years the burgeoning Muslim population in Britain will take over the nation that produced some of the greatest Christian pastors, writers, and missionaries.
