A Testimony from Hitchhiking

I’ve been hitchhiking for years and have lots of colorful stories to share. Here’s a recent encounter I had:

While hitchhiking into town, I was picked up by a man who had clearly been outside most of the day. He told me that he works in security on the borders of Israel. When he asked where I was from, I told him Texas. Then I described a recent attack in Amarillo where a Muslim came into a Walmart, taking hostages with his gun because he wasn’t satisfied with his salary there. Thank G-d the SWAT team took him out and no one else was hurt. The left wingers are calling this workplace violence instead of terrorism.

The man in the truck began to yell at me, “Do you know who I am?! Did you ever meet me before?!”

“No,” I answered quietly.

“I am an Arab!”

“Oops, I’m dead”, I thought.

“I am an Arab Christian and I know what terrorism looks like and this is it!” Then he began to yell repeatedly, “Obama, ata lo b’seder – Obama, you are not ok!” “I see what these Muslim terrorists can do and if you don’t identify them for who they really are, then you’re in big trouble.”

When he calmed down, I told him that I’m a Jewish believer in Messiah so then we spoke about Yeshua and how this is mainly a spiritual battle. I made a new politically incorrect friend today. Only in Israel….
