The motion further calls on the Irish Congress of Trade Unions to “step up its campaign for boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) against the apartheid state of Israel until it lifts its illegal siege of Gaza and its illegal occupation of the West Bank, and agrees to abide by International law and all UN Resolutions against it”, and on the TUI to conduct an awareness campaign amongst members on the need for BDS. The motion was a composite motion proposed by the TUI Executive Committee and TUI Dublin Colleges Branch. It was presented by Jim Roche, a lecturer in the DIT School of Architecture and member of the TUI Dublin Colleges Union branch, and seconded by Gerry Quinn, Vice President of the TUI.
The Word of God, as ever ahead of its time, prophecies that the end of this age will indeed be marked by a turning against God's ancient people by those who are ungodly. We have already seen that once with Nazism and its hatred of the Jews.
This time of wicked persecution of the Jews will be overruled by the Lord for their good and eventual turning as a nation to believe on Jesus Christ. As Jeremiah 30:7 further states: …but he shall be saved out of it.
