    The scenario is that simple, and simply certain: Bad neighbours inevitably will arouse the entire neighbourhood against them. In the case of nations, this means war. This is inescabable. And the truth is inescabable to all but religious fanatics. God was not on the side of Israel when he sent Jonah to Nineveh. God was not on the side of Judah when he sent them Jeremiah with the command to not resist the invasion of Nebuchadnezzar, and go peacefully into captivity. And Moses was not on the side of Israel when he warned them of permanent national exile as a consequence of failure to represent the true nature of God to the world, as his missionaries. Jeremiah confirmed this in God's parable of the potter's power over the clay, to discard the failed pot, and create another in its place. MATTHEW 6:23 But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great [is] that darkness!
