Falklands : Falklands Threatened with the Torah
Submitted by Falkland Islands News Network (Juanita Brock) 12.08.2006 (Current Article)
I'm positive that the first five books of the Word of God were originally written for the Hebrew Nation - Israel - so why does Deuteronomy 28: 52 apply to the Falklands?
FALKLANDS THREATENED WITH THE TORAH
By J. Brock (FINN)
New on Google news are stories from “The Trumpet” saying that it is written in the Torah that in accordance with Deuteronomy 28:52, Argentina will “Shut Falkland Islanders up in all of their towns throughout the Falklands until every mighty, towering wall, in which Islanders trust will come down. And, when they are shut up in all their towns throughout the Falklands that the Lord God has given them,” (53) Islanders shall eat their own….” Well, I think you get the idea.
The article, “Britain’s last Strands of Empire,” by Ron Fraser, was published in the Philadelphia paper of the “Church of God.” And, to be fair, it was filled with some information pulled from the British press and Baroness Thatcher’s Memoirs.
He touts the fact that the Falklands are going to remember the 1982 conflict in a very special way, saying of the 26 June 2006 announcement, “Well, perhaps the present labour (socialist) government in Britain, increasingly taking on the appearance of an institution rapidly losing touch with the governed, thinks the British public need a shot in the arm. Nothing like a bit of flag waving and a few brass bands to wake up those Brits! So on June 26, the government announced plans for a major shindig to celebrate the 25th anniversary of British victory in the Falklands.”
He got us there – I imagine there will be Falklands flag waving over something that happened 25 years ago but in Philadelphia, where this article was written there’s a huge shindig on July 4th over something that was done on the day in 1776. Does this mean that America is going to be invaded by aliens?
As for that passage in Deuteronomy, it was written for the Jews and there isn’t even a synagogue here. If Mr. Fraser had bothered to come to the Falklands, he would have noticed that there aren’t any walled towns here – though we do fence our sheep in paddocks.
I suggest Mr. Fraser read the book of Deuteronomy again, and focus on the whole of chapter 28, where firstly God said through Moses that He would bless Israel if the people kept His Word (Deut 28: 1-14) and admonished them about what would happen if they did not obey His Word (Deut 28: 15 – onwards).
Remembering 1982 won’t be as easy for us as remembrance for 1776 is for you. Any Viet Nam veteran suffering from PTSD will tell you about remembrance. It isn’t a shindig.
