2 Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem.
3 And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.
As you read or watch the news it is very easy to see an anti-Israel bias. The world does not like Israel at all. Just look at the Europeans where anti-sementics are increasing. From there look at the UN which is so anti-Israel that they don't even try to be honest about it. To the UN, people who attack the Jews are ok but Israel is the bad guy when they defend themselves. This is the major theme in the world's news media.
Why is there this anti-Jewish and anti-Israel bias in the world? Well I would say that the devil knows enough Bible prophecy to know that God is blessing and protecting the nation of Israel. Also there are many Bible prophecies that have not yet been fulfilled for the nation of Israel. The devil thinks that if, somehow, he can destroy Israel then can disrupt the eternal plans of God. Since this world currently is under the rule of the devil and his people, what the devil does not like... his people do not like. Conversely what the devil likes, his lost people also like. For example, just look at sexual sins. The result of sexual sins is terrible and deadly diseases. However, Satan blesses sexual sin and this is why it is so popular in the world. TV, the movies and the media encourage sexual sin from adultery, fornication, and sodomy all with the blessings of the devil.
This is why Israel is hated in the world by many powerful countries and organizations. God loves and is blessing Israel. Satan therefore hates Israel. Notice how the little nation of Israel is constantly forefront in the news? Isn't that strange that a small nation of only 5 million can command the constant attention of the world? In fact the city of Jerusalem is literally a burdensome stone for the world. The Islamics demand this city for their possession. The Jews rightly have claimed the city of Jerusalem. Don't think the problems related to Jerusalem will be resolved. This city is literally the fuse to Armageddon! No other tiny nation in the world commands such attention as does the nation of Israel and Jerusalem. Again, all this attention and problems are a direct fulfillment of Bible prophecy.
