Spreading A Positive Revolution
“It is not enough to be against things…”
( Edward De Bono )
Historically, revolutions have been negative – defining, overthrowing or destroying an enemy, fuelled by a sense of mission and direction. After victory, however, this energy often races on, causing factionalism and strife among the victors. The positive revolution also has energy and direction, but its opponents are entrenched patterns in thought. Progress, maintains Edward de Bono – whether on a personal or global scale – depends on thinking and behaviour that are positive and constructive. The world today is undergoing dramatic, often violent changes, and human behaviour is frequently shaped by guilt and negativity. To lift this dark cloud and create positive revolution, we need to rely more on humour, a key element in changing perception.
In the positive revolution there are no enemies. BDS ( Boycotts, Divestments & Sanctions ) on the other hand, a movement that originated in the West amongst those who hate Israel for who she is and for what she is, is a negative movement and derives its energy “against people and things”. A movement such as this makes our world a worst place not a better place.
BDS ( Boycotts + Divestments + Sanctions ) is a movement made of up individuals and institutions that are committed to a single purpose – to direct extreme hate against Israel to the point to see her ( the people and the land ) disappear once again from the world map. This movement discharges much negative energy – the kind of energy that invites demonic elements to enter and to establish strongholds.
ISRAEL today is under heavy fire and it is not limited to bombs, rockets and bullets. More rockets and bullets and bombs are released through propaganda and through social media against ISRAEL. If only those who hate ISRAEL would stop, pause and ponder as to why they hate the very people who have been a blessing not only to them but to the world at large everything will change. ANTI SEMITISM ( or BDS an extension of that ) is not a rational ideology – at its core the belief system is irrational which is why fighting them “rationally” is to fight a losing battle.
@ SHALOM ISRAEL ( ASIA PACIFIC ) we too want to create a positive revolution – a movement moving in the opposite spirit – Love. We want to direct “love” towards the Jewish people especially those who are living in Israel. As Christians we are called to demonstrate “love” not hate and therefore we choose even to direct this love even to those who are a part of the BDS Movement remembering the words of our LORD who called us even to love our enemies. For us @ SHALOM ISRAEL ( ASIA PACIFIC ) to “love Israel” does not mean we have to hate the Palestinians – for love is stronger than hate.

Blessing The People Of Israel + Direct Investments Into Israel +
Shopping Israeli Products, Including Judea Samaria ( Israel ) +++
Here @ THE PRECIOUS STONES EXPERIENCE we wish to tell a different narrative to all those who are visiting us from all over the nations – that as Christians it is not enough just for us to visit Israel and enjoy all that it offers to us as Christians. But moving beyond that to recall, remember the words of one “gentile” called Ruth to a Jewish woman called Naomi – “your people shall be my people”. At the THE PRECIOUS STONES EXPERIENCE we not only give our visitors an opportunity to bless Israel by shopping at our store, but to take a step further and to support us as we support the Jewish people in Israel. If there ever was a time to make this statement to our Jewish brothers and sisters living in Israel … NOW is the Time ! At a time when the world is hurling rocks at the Jewish People / Jewish State let us shower them with love for everything we have as Christians comes from them. Let’s be grateful.
