June 25, 2019, Manama, Bahrain: Under the guise of Jared Kushner, the Peace to Prosperity work shop has begun. Kushner has dubbed the peace plan as the “opportunity of the century”.

Kushner opened the conference with a speech.

“Today is not about political issues. The goal of this workshop is to begin thinking about these challenges in a new way. To work together to develop a concrete plan to try to achieve it. Imagine a new reality in the Middle East … Imagine a bustling tourist center in Gaza and the West Bank. Imagine people and goods flowing securely throughout the region as people become more prosperous. This is not a stretch, it is the historic legacy of the Middle East.” -Jared Kushner

Ezekiel 7:19 They cast their silver into the streets, and their gold is like an unclean thing. Their silver and gold are not able to deliver them in the day of the wrath of the LORD. They cannot satisfy their hunger or fill their stomachs with it. For it was the stumbling block of their iniquity.

Zephaniah 1:18 Neither their silver nor their gold will be able to deliver them on the day of the LORD’S wrath; and all the earth will be devoured in the fire of His jealousy, for He will make a complete end, indeed a terrifying one, of all the inhabitants of the earth.

The Worthy Versus the Unworthy

Ezekiel 7:23 Forge a chain! For the land is full of bloody crimes and the city is full of violence.

Sadly, our society has fostered a culture that assigns people varying levels of worth. It’s a worthy versus the unworthy environment. To the mainstream public, the rape of a prostituted person isn’t recognized as rape in the same way that the rape of a working, middle−class woman in the parking garage after work inarguably is.

worthy

Prostitutes are expendable even to murderers. Who looks for missing prostitutes? A prostituted person is 59 percent more likely to be murdered while working than one in any other profession. The murder of a prostitute doesn’t reap the same passionate response as the murder of a college student, a business professional, or virtually any other human being.

The truth is, regardless of whether you are a man, woman, boy, or girl, violence is violence, trauma is trauma, and hurt is hurt, and the taking of any life is murder. Yet the world in general puts blinders on where prostituted people are concerned.

They are viewed as nameless, faceless background characters. No one cares for them on the most basic of levels, so why would they be so much as a blink of a thought when the conversation turns to the abused, violated, and hurt?

Ignorance abounds. No one says a word when someone says, “If they weren’t living that lifestyle, that wouldn’t have happened.” Or, “If she hadn’t been an addict trading her body for drugs, she wouldn’t have been beaten by that guy.”

But the “she” in those statements is a real and precious individual. She was once someone’s baby. She was conceived in the mind of God before she ever walked this earth. She’s no more lost than the rest of humanity before they come to know Christ, and yet even Christians don’t give her a second thought—or even a first. It’s almost as if she’s not really human. In jails, in prisons, in treatment, with law enforcement, with churches, and any and all other circles, the prostituted person is viewed with judgment, treated with harsh words, and condemned. People in general don’t even try to hide their disgust. The lowest of the lowest, even to criminals. How does one recover from such an existence?
