The first Palestinian American to serve as a US Congress member said he was grieving after several of his relatives were killed at a Greek Orthodox church in Gaza that authorities report was hit by an Israeli airstrike.

Justin Amash detailed his sorrow over losing family members amid the Israel-Hamas war in a post on X, the social media platform formerly known as Twitter.

“I was really worried about this. With great sadness, I have now confirmed that several of my relatives … were killed at Saint Porphyrius Orthodox Church in Gaza, where they had been sheltering, when part of the complex was destroyed as the result of an Israeli airstrike,” Amash wrote in a post that pictured whom he identified as two lost family members, Viola and Yara.

The ex-congressman’s post continued: “Give rest, O Lord, to their souls, and may their memories be eternal. The Palestinian Christian community has endured so much. Our family is hurting badly. May God watch over all Christians in Gaza – and all Israelis and Palestinians who are suffering, whatever their religion or creed.”

Born in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Amash has previously said his father was a Palestinian Christian who lived in Ramla until his family was forced out during the Arab-Israeli war in 1948.

The 43-year-old Amash served as a US House representative for Michigan from 2011 to 2021...

If any other group than the Israelis had bombed a Christian Church and killed members of a US Congressman's family, the Neo-Cons would have declared it to be an act of war against America.

I wasn't surprised that FR took this new article down immediately.

Zionist Protestants claim that they do not follow an infallible Pope, but in fact they do - the modern political state of Israel.

And their Pope does not even to do something like speak "ex Cathedra". For Zionists any action by any Jew who proclaims that Jesus Christ is burning in hell for eternity is automatically infallibly true and holy.

Where's the lie?

Zionist Protestants are so full of the belief that Israel is infallible that to even post over at FR that Israel bombed a Christian Church had this response:

1st they denied that it even happened.

2nd they tried to claim that a Hamas sugar rocket had taken down an entire building wing instead of the Israelis.

3rd they tried to claim that the Christian Church was full of terrorists or full of Hamas weapons.

When all of that was misproven - when it was shown that the Jewish state had deliberately bombed a Christian Church, that the Church only had homeless refugees sleeping in the offices, and that there were no weapons there at all, and that in fact the Christ-hating Jews had murdered several teenage girls who are members of US Congressman Justin Amash's family - what did they do?

They deleted the news article completely and shut off my posting ability, because Zionists cannot handle truth being spoken about the Synagogue of Satan.

You are saying they are Jews. Then you are saying they are not Jews. That is what the Bible says. Those who "say they are jews, and are not".

You seem confused.

And Hamas does fire missiles from churches, schools, hospitals.

Also you have presented no evidence of who was at the hospital or if missiles was fired from there.

The world calls the Synagogue of Satan Jews.

The New Israel is the Christian Church. Jews who did not recognize Jesus as the Messiah have cast themselves out of Israel.

What happened in history? Just as Christ prophesied, once the Jews had murdered Jesus it was only a few decades before their temple was razed to the ground by the Romans. It is because for them to try to offer animal sacrifices instead of the sacrifice which Our Lord made of Himself are now an abomination.

The modern day "Jews" are indeed the very Synagogue of Satan which God described persecuting the Church.

Even here in the USA, when I was young (a long time ago) we had "Christmas Break" and "Easter Week" off from public school. That was changed to be "Winter Break" and "Spring Break". Why?

Well, I know EXACTLY why in my home school district in North Texas. A Christ-hating Jew, Florence Shapiro, got herself put in charge and immediately banned any mention or celebration of Christian holidays. She even banned using red and green decorations at "Winter Break" parties because she said those colors looked "too Christian" and were "offensive to Jews."

Everywhere they go, the Christ-hating Jews try to stamp out Christianity .

And no, I'm not with Hamas, I am an Orthodox Christian and support the original historical Church in Jerusalem that had St. James as its' first Bishop before the Jews threw him off of a tall building to kill him.

Looks like the "orthodox" church in Israel has a long history of siding with Hamas as they try to kill Jews.

Archbishop Alexios, who oversees the church, says Hamas set up a rocket- launch site adjacent to the church even though at least 1,000 Muslim refugees had crowded inside. He told CBN News the terrorists set up the launch site near a roof terrace outside his office at the 12th century church.

Several Israeli shells hit the church compound on July 21, according to the Times of Israel in response to rocket fire from the site. Alexios' revelation marks the third independent confirmation of Israel's claim that Hamas uses heavily-populated areas to launch rockets in less than a week.

TV news crews from France 24 and India's NDTV reported earlier this week that they had each found Hamas launch sites in crowded areas of Gaza City. Video of rocket launches taken by Israeli drones flying over Gaza likewise show Hamas using densely-populated parts of the enclave to fire on Israel.

Alexios said he did not want to take sides in the conflict, but declined to provide further information about Hamas activities due to security concerns. Gaza's 1,500 Christians comprise a tiny fraction of the total population of 1.8 million residents.

With the end of the latest cease-fire and Hamas' resumption of firing rockets on Israel, there can be little doubt the terrorists will continue their practice of using densely populated areas to launch their rockets, endangering civilians.

You are in error regarding an "everlasting covenant"

Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they continued not in my covenant, and I regarded them not, saith the Lord.

"I regarded them not, saith the Lord".

God revoked His covenant with Israel.

God said it was everlasting.

A new covenant will be made with Israel...to be fulfilled "after those days"...

For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people: And they shall not teach every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know me, from the least to the greatest. For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more. In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away.

Church is israel

As far as the off topic Mary question, while some Orthodox have the pious belief that Mary was capable of sin but never chose to do so (as opposed to the Immaculate Conception dogma of Rome which states that Mary was incapable of sin) it is not a dogma of the Orthodox Church, which means members are not required at all to believe that.

Nope. Florence Shapiro is one of many Jewish Neo-Con Republicans.

The Neo-Con takeover of the Republican Party was spearheaded by Jews who followed Trotsky as opposed to the Stalinists who took over the Democrats.

That's why Bill Krystol threw a fit and became a Never Trumper, while grifters like Ben Shapiro virulently opposed Trump in the primary and now pretend to support him while stabbing him in the back every chance they get.

And I am not anti-Semitic. I do not advocate banning Judaism, like the Jew Zelensky has banned Orthodox Christianity in the Ukraine. I do not support murdering Jewish civilians like the Israelis do to Middle Eastern Christians all of the time. I simply am not a dummy like the Protestants who believe that the Jews are their greatest friends and allies when the Jews tell them up front that they hate them and wished that they did not exist.

When asked, for example, the overwhelming majority of American Jews like Muslims twice as much as Protestants. ROTFLOL, the evangelicals SIMP for the political state of Israel as the Christ-hating Jews spit upon them.

11 I say then, Hath God cast away his people? God forbid. For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin.

2 God hath not cast away his people which he foreknew. Wot ye not what the scripture saith of Elias? how he maketh intercession to God against Israel saying,

3 Lord, they have killed thy prophets, and digged down thine altars; and I am left alone, and they seek my life.

4 But what saith the answer of God unto him? I have reserved to myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to the image of Baal.

5 Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace.

6 And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then it is no more grace: otherwise work is no more work.

7 What then? Israel hath not obtained that which he seeketh for; but the election hath obtained it, and the rest were blinded.

8 (According as it is written, God hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear;) unto this day.

9 And David saith, Let their table be made a snare, and a trap, and a stumblingblock, and a recompence unto them:

10 Let their eyes be darkened, that they may not see, and bow down their back alway.

11 I say then, Have they stumbled that they should fall? God forbid: but rather through their fall salvation is come unto the Gentiles, for to provoke them to jealousy.

12 Now if the fall of them be the riches of the world, and the diminishing of them the riches of the Gentiles; how much more their fulness?

13 For I speak to you Gentiles, inasmuch as I am the apostle of the Gentiles, I magnify mine office:

14 If by any means I may provoke to emulation them which are my flesh, and might save some of them.

15 For if the casting away of them be the reconciling of the world, what shall the receiving of them be, but life from the dead?

16 For if the firstfruit be holy, the lump is also holy: and if the root be holy, so are the branches.

17 And if some of the branches be broken off, and thou, being a wild olive tree, wert grafted in among them, and with them partakest of the root and fatness of the olive tree;

18 Boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee.

19 Thou wilt say then, The branches were broken off, that I might be grafted in.

20 Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear:

21 For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee.

22 Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off.

23 And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be grafted in: for God is able to graft them in again.

24 For if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert grafted contrary to nature into a good olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree?

25 For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.

26 And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:

27 For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins.

28 As concerning the gospel, they are enemies for your sakes: but as touching the election, they are beloved for the father's sakes.

29 For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.

30 For as ye in times past have not believed God, yet have now obtained mercy through their unbelief:

31 Even so have these also now not believed, that through your mercy they also may obtain mercy.

32 For God hath concluded them all in unbelief, that he might have mercy upon all.

33 O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!

34 For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counsellor?

35 Or who hath first given to him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again?

36 For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.

The true Israel indeed is getting bigger and bigger as people leave the false man-made Protestant Churches created long after the time of the New Testament and far from the Holy Land and return to the original Church founded by Jesus Christ through His Apostles.

And that is why the Synagogue of Satan rages in fury.

The Christ-hating Jews who reject Jesus Christ will be cast into hell. They can scream at God all they want. shouting "We are sinless and infallible because we reject Jesus Christ!!" and it will not save them.

Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham. And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed. So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham(Gal. 3:7-9)

The true Israel is faithful. Jews who hate Jesus Christ are not faithful, but to be cut off and burned in the fire.
