THE STATE OF ISRAEL MUST MAKE WAR AS GOD COMMANDED
It is written in Deuteronomy 20:10-18 that God said:
“10 When thou drawest nigh unto a city to fight against it, then proclaim peace unto it.
11 And it shall be, if it make thee answer of peace, and open unto thee, then it shall be, that all the people that are found therein shall become tributary unto thee, and shall serve thee.
12 And if it will make no peace with thee, but will make war against thee, then thou shalt besiege it:
13 and when Yahveh thy God delivereth it into thy hand, thou shalt smite every male thereof with the edge of the sword:
14 but the women, and the little ones, and the cattle, and all that is in the city, even all the spoil thereof, shalt thou take for a prey unto thyself; and thou shalt eat the spoil of thine enemies, which Yahveh thy God hath given thee.
15 Thus shalt thou do unto all the cities which are very far off from thee, which are not of the cities of these nations.
16 But of the cities of these peoples, that Yahveh thy God giveth thee for an inheritance, thou shalt save alive nothing that breatheth;
17 but thou shalt utterly destroy them: the Hittite, and the Amorite, the Canaanite, and the Perizzite, the Hivite, and the Jebusite; as Yahveh thy God hath commanded thee;
18 that they teach you not to do after all their abominations, which they have done unto their gods; so would ye sin against Yahveh your God.”
So, we see that God commanded that when the people of Israel make war, they kill all the enemies, warriors as well as civilians.
The State of Israel must obey this commandment of God.
Therefore, when the State of Israel makes war, it must kill all the enemies, warriors as well as civilians.
It is written in Numbers 33:52 that God said:
“52 Then ye shall drive out all the inhabitants of the land from before you, and destroy all their pictures, and destroy all their molten images, and quite pluck down all their high places.”
So, we see that God commanded Israel to drive out all the inhabitants of the Land of Canaan, that is the Land of Israel, that some call “Palestine”.
Therefore, the State of Israel must expel all the Palestinian Arabs from the Land of Israel.
In Deuteronomy 20:10-18 it is written that God commanded that when Israel makes war, he kill all the enemies, without distinction between warriors and civilians.
So, in the war against Palestinian Arabs, the State of Israel must kill all of them, warriors as well as civilians.
Yahveh bless you.
