Where is the outcry??

God, time and time again condemns the practice of perverting justice. Ezekiel 22:7 is one such instance, the Word says "they have treated father and mother lightly within you. The alien they have oppressed in your midst; the fatherless and the widow they have wronged in you." As Christians it should bother us and lead us first and foremost to cry out to God and then our elected leaders that there are people who are still oppressed in our midst today. The unborn is one such group of people, who are not only being oppressed but put to death by the millions and yet where is the church in the midst of all of this? 
Yet those I want to focus on today who are the target of probably more oppression than any other nation is the nation of the Jews. Where is the outcry for the Jewish people? If Hamas was launching rockets against any other nation in existence, the outcry would be worldwide, and yet these terrorist launch rockets against the Jews and yet the world sides with Hamas, why is that the case? Revelation 12:13 says "when the dragon saw that he had been thrown down to earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male child." The woman in this context is Israel, and the devil has and continues to persecute Israel. 
Now let me say this as a Christian, the Jews just like any other sinner on the planet can only be reconciled to God through the Lord Jesus Christ, and His atoning blood alone. Yet with that said, these people are oppressed and righteous indignation should well up inside of us for the injustice that is occurring to the Jewish people. One of the biggest forms of this persecution against the Jews is coming from the terrorist Iranian president. He says "Israel must be wiped off of the map". Read it for yourself at  Now why is this statement coming from this terrorist producing an outcry within  the world?? Yet Columbia University has this man come and speak at their university. Shame on you Columbia University, you shouldn't be heralded for your diversity, you should be imprisoned for treason!!
Yet this same man president Obama wants to sit down and talk with, with no stipulations. Again read this for yourself at Where is the outcry? Have we become so blind that we fail to see the injustice in these matters? I am not a political activist, but I love God and love His Word, and desire to see the Jews as well as the Iranian president himself come to saving faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. But where is the cry for justice, and the cry to see righteousness carried out on behalf of the Jews and any and all other oppressed people!
