NEW YORK (Worthy News)– Anti-Israel rallies took place all across the world condemning Israel's military action against Hamas in the Gaza Strip. Thousands of protesters took to the streets in major cities of London, Cape Town, Santiago, Melbourne, Berlin, and New York. As antisemitism rises around the world, Bible scholars point to the fulfillment of prophecy as God is using hatred towards the Jews to drive them back to their ancient homeland.
"'As the LORD lives who brought up the people of Israel out of the north country and out of all the countries where he had driven them.' For I will bring them back to their own land that I gave to their fathers. "Behold, I am sending for many fishers, declares the LORD, and they shall catch them. And afterward I will send for many hunters, and they shall hunt them from every mountain and every hill, and out of the clefts of the rocks." [Jeremiah 16:15-16]
