The popular vacation accommodation website Airbnb has banned Israeli Jews who live in Judea and Samaria, also known as the West Bank, from listing their homes for rent.
Airbnb said in a statement it âconcluded that we should remove listings in Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank that are at the core of the dispute between Israelis and Palestinians.â
Michael Oren, a former Israeli ambassador to the United States, called Airbnbâs policy anti-Semitic.
âAirbnb blacklists Jewish apartments in Judea and Samaria â not Palestinian apartments, not apartments in Turkish occupied Cyprus, in Moroccan occupied Sahara, not in Tibet or the Crimea,â Oren tweeted....
well, if only certain races are allowed there, it makes sense not to advertise. but our dispensational friends have a bigger problem in their plight to be politically correct, now they will need to censor and control the new testament.....

Why does a worldly state, created and given power by the world system, started by Zionist and Masons, with a supreme court building steeped in occultist architecture have clout with Christians? Is it the name "Israel"? What is the attraction? Is it ok for Christians to be nationalist? Why is it ok for a Christian to be a Zionist?
36 Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence. (Joh 18:36)
Thanks, Plain Old Tim. It always seems strange to me that good solid strong evangelicals and find fundamentalists who hold to the inerrancy of the Bible and believe in a literal creation (young earth, 6 literal days), the worldwide flood of Noah, the miracles in the OT and NT, the uniqueness of the Lord Jesus Christ, His Virgin Birth, His sinless life, His death on the cross and His resurrection 3 days later, and so forth, seem to have a complete blind spot on eschatology, and particularly Israel, and start allegorising scriptures, and oddly, these good solid evangelicals are actually continuing the doctrines and beliefs of both the Roman Catholic Church and the Eastern Orthodox Churches that they condemn!!! Very strange.
Chris GP, your comments regarding Israel are among the few scripturally sound ones ever to appear on this site. Itâs funny how so many Christians who warn against spiritualizing other scriptures will try to hijack the promises made specifically to the Jews and superimpose them onto the church. My only comment on this subject, as the âIsrael really means the churchâ gang has already made up their minds to believe that God has cast off Israel contrary to His word.

Chris, you don't have to hold dispensational beliefs to know that God keeps his promises to Israel and the Jewish people. But you do have to understand what the expressions Israel and the Jewish people means in terms of the fulfilment of all the OT pictures.
I am not a dispensationalist, and I know that God will fulfil all of his promises, and bring to pass all prophecy; and the Lord Jesus will save all of his people from all of their sins.
Finally, do you really support the establishment of another sharia Islamic state. Remember there is for them only a one state solution, which will kill and expel the Jews, and persecute the Christians. The Muslims demand nothing less than the extirpation of the Jewish state of Israel, and a single Arab Muslim state, with the Islamic flags fluttering on the Temple Mount in âAl Qudsâ, as they will call Jerusalem.
With leading evangelical Christians increasingly actually attacking Israel and championing âPalestineâ, the Muslims will indeed be laughing all the way to the bank!!
BDW - You are quite right in saying that non-Messianic Judaism has nothing to offer, and that Jews who are involved in that need to come out of that, and come to a real personal saving knowledge of Yeshua HaâMaschiach, the Lord Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour, and as their Messiah.
However, BDW, to go from there to denying any biblical promises of the literal land of Israel to the literal Jews is very different.
I would like to remind you that 1). There are an increasing number Messianic Jews that do know the Lord Jesus Christ as their Messiah.
2). There is no such thing as a national Palestine, nor ever was, or a mythical Arab Palestinian people.
3). Judea and Samaria are the heartland of Israel, not a mythical âWest Bankâ.
4). God has promised in His Word that He will restore the literal land to the literal people, and in the Old Testament, Israel, Zion, Judah and Jerusalem means literally, Israel, Zion, Judah and Jerusalem, not some allegorical meaning, like the church. Sadly many Protestant Evangelicals are continuing the error of the Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox Church.
5). If God breaks His promises to Israel and the Jewish people, what makes us in the Church think He will be faithful and keep Hus promises to us. Finally, do you really sup
Christians believe Judaism is obsolete, just as Islamists believe Christianity is obsolete. But the problem for Islamists is that God has already said that in the LAST DAYS he has spoken to us by his Son - the LORD JESUS CHRIST, and that he is the way, the truth, and the life. He is the only one who has removed the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us.
All the constant fussing over Jews by american evangelicals is a result of the twisted dispensationalist theology that has infected this country. Modern day Judaism is a fraud. There's no temple, no priests, no sacrifices, no ark of the covenant; and even if there was all of those things it would make no difference in God's eyes because they (followers of Judaism) have rejected the True Sacrifice. Christians should view Judaism the same way we view Islam, Mormonism, and other similar religions -just cults of Christianity.
