This is something I wrote last year and forgot about until this week
Exactly this time last year, I was thinking today about the UN decision to partially recognise Palestine as a nation, but I had been busy last couple of days (of December 2012) and have not really properly followed the news.
For countries that don’t want to give recognition to a new extreme Islamic state that fires rockets into its neighbours and radicalizes its youth with hate, I was surprised to see apart from US, Israel and the Czech Republic, some tiny little known countries out in the Pacific Ocean:-
Several of these countries are some of the smallest in the world.
I did some research on Wikipedia from here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_population
Makes me think of this passage in Luke 9 : 46 An argument started among the disciples as to which of them would be the greatest. 47 Jesus, knowing their thoughts, took a little child and made him stand beside him. 48 Then he said to them, ‘Whoever welcomes this little child in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me. For it is the one who is least among you all who is the greatest.’
Maybe some of these little countries prefer to go with the not so population opinion, and as the above mentions the least being the greatest.
I’d like to learn more about the church in these tiny countries and how they support Israel.
