Israel has been a land of strife and conflict since the days of Abraham. Not many nations on earth have been through as many wars, suffered as much grief and seen as much bloodshed as Israel.
However, Israel is a blessed and highly favored nation, the late Jamie Buckingham said in this video devotional from 1988.
"Terrorists think they can destroy Israel just like 2000 years ago when Satan thought he could stop the Messiah from saving the world by nailing Him to a cross," Buckingham said.
The persecution of Israel's people was summed up by a rabbi Buckingham met at the Western Wall in Jerusalem: "Such is the price of being chosen."
