Israel-Hamas war: Omokri knocks Pastor Adeboye over recent comment

Reno Omokri, a sociopolitical activist, has criticized the
General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye,
for backing Israel in the ongoing war between the country and Hamas, an Islamic
Resistance Movement.


Pastor Adeboye had, in a short
video posted on Wednesday through his official X handle, said God will grant
Israel absolute victory over Hamas.


According to him, ‘no one will ever again disrupt the peace
of Israel.’


Adeboye’s comments came after Jordan had backed Hamas in the
war against Israel.


Reacting, Omokri, in a post via his X account, faults
Adeboye’s comment, insisting that a greater percentage of Palestinians are
Christians than the Israeli population.


He tweeted, “But, sir @PastorEAAdeboye, what about our
brothers and sisters in Palestine? A greater percentage of Palestinians are
Christians than the Israeli population. Half a million of them, to be precise.
Doesn’t the Bible, in Galatians 6:10, ask us to first show love to members of
the household of faith before others? Perhaps they may feel abandoned that your
message did not even mention them. If I were a Palestinian and saw your
message, I would sink into further despair.


“Acts 10:34 says God does not show partiality. But sir, are
we not being partial when we pray for Israel and ignore Palestine? Perhaps it
is an oversight.


“Sir, I have been to Palestine. I will not wish their
condition on my own enemy. They are God’s children, too. Don’t they deserve our
love and prayers and every possible non-military support we can rouse to alleviate
their tremendous human suffering?”


The conflict between Israel and Hamas has escalated,
resulting in total military warfare in the Gaza Strip since Saturday.


According to a report from humanitarian bodies, the war had
already claimed over 2,300 lives on both sides.
