Yes, They Make Mistakes... BUT, Do NOT Abandon Israel.

For eons, tribe after tribe, nation after nation, prejudice after prejudice are continuing to assault Israel, the man, the tribe, and the nation. God pronounced a particular blessing and curse on anyone or anything that associates itself with Israel (the children of Abraham), whether to align in friendship, to trifle with them out of meanness, or to engage as mortal enemies in battle. We all need to be mindful and careful of how we think, pray, speak, and act with regard to Abraham's descendents who are God's chosen people, the Jews, Israel, for we shall either bring God's blessings upon us for befriending Israel, or we shall bring God's curses and destruction upon us. The choice is ours.

Genesis 12:1-3:
  "Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee:
2  And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:
3  And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.

Isaiah 34:1-8:
  "Come near, ye nations, to hear; and hearken, ye people: let the earth hear, and all that is therein; the world, and all things that come forth of it.
2  For the indignation of the LORD is upon all nations, and his fury upon all their armies: he hath utterly destroyed them, he hath delivered them to the slaughter.
3  Their slain also shall be cast out, and their stink shall come up out of their carcases, and the mountains shall be melted with their blood.
4  And all the host of heaven shall be dissolved, and the heavens shall be rolled together as a scroll: and all their host shall fall down, as the leaf falleth off from the vine, and as a falling fig from the fig tree.
5  For my sword shall be bathed in heaven: behold, it shall come down upon Idumea, and upon the people of my curse, to judgment.
6  The sword of the LORD is filled with blood, it is made fat with fatness, and with the blood of lambs and goats, with the fat of the kidneys of rams: for the LORD hath a sacrifice in Bozrah, and a great slaughter in the land of Idumea.
7  And the unicorns shall come down with them, and the bullocks with the bulls; and their land shall be soaked with blood, and their dust made fat with fatness.
8  For it is the day of the LORD'S vengeance, and the year of recompences for the controversy of Zion."
