Take heart Jews, Israelis and the civilized World from the Torah Parsha of the week – Eikev

The Fifth Book of Moses, Devarim (Deuteronomy)

http://israel-commentary.org/?p=7081

15 The Lord will ward off from you all sickness; He will not bring upon you any of the dreadful diseases of Egypt, about which you know, but will inflict them upon all your enemies.

16 You shall destroy all the peoples that the LORD your God delivers to you, showing them no pity. And you shall not worship their gods, for that would be a snare to you.

17 Should you say to yourselves, “These nations are more numerous than we; how can we dispossess them?”

18 You need have no fear of them. You have but to bear in mind what the LORD your God did to Pharaoh and all the Egyptians

19 wondrous acts that you saw with your own eyes, the signs and the portents, the mighty hand, and the outstretched arm by which the LORD your God liberated you. Thus will the LORD your God do to all the peoples you now fear.

20 The LORD your God will also send a plague against them, until those who are left in hiding perish before you.

21 Do not stand in dread of them, for the LORD your God is in your midst, a great and awesome God.

22. The LORD your God will dislodge those peoples before you little by little; you will not be able to put an end to them at once, else the wild beasts would multiply to your hurt.

23 The LORD your God will deliver them up to you, throwing them into utter panic until they are wiped out.

24 He will deliver their kings into your hand, and you shall obliterate their name from under the heavens; no man shall stand up to you, until you have wiped them out.

25 You shall consign the images of their gods to the fire; you shall not covet the silver and gold on them and keep it for yourselves, lest you be ensnared thereby; for that is abhorrent to the LORD your God.

26 You must not bring an abhorrent thing into your house or you will be proscribed like it. You must reject it as abominable and abhorrent, for it is proscribed.

Maftir portion of Torah reading

24 Every spot on which your foot treads shall be yours; your territory shall extend from the wilderness to the Lebanon and from the River — the Euphrates— to the Western Sea.

(Please check your maps and see with your own eyes the huge amount of territory, G-d gave to the Israelis. It stretches all the way from the Mediterranean Sea to the land of Iraq with its eastern border being the Euphrates River! Never mind just the minuscule West Bank (Judea and Samaria). Never mind the artificial, British created, nation of Lebanon. That is not what G-d created for the Israelis) jsk

25 No man shall stand up to you; the Lord your God will put the dread and the fear of you over the whole land in which you set foot, as He promised you.
