The founder of a Messianic Jewish ministry says far-left members of the House of Representatives are misinformed about God's special relationship with Israel.

Democratic House members -- led by Michigan Representative Rashida Tlaib, who has Palestinian roots -- have introduced a resolution calling for U.S. recognition of the "Nakba," a term meaning "catastrophe" that is typically used by Palestinians to slam the establishment of the state of Israel.

"The Palestinian people since the 48 Nakba have been living under oppression and violent racism. Silence + blank checks enables more death and violence," Tlaib recently tweeted.

Jan Markell, founder and director of Olive Tree Ministries in Minnesota, says Tlaib and other members of "the squad" need to take their issue up with God.

"He created his land, and the purpose of it was to be a homeland for the Jewish people," Markell asserts. "In Leviticus 25, the Bible says that God says this is his land, but he has given it as a covenant to the Jewish people. He did not give it as a covenant to the Muslim people. So Israel haters need to take their arguments up with God, which I doubt that they'll do."

She adds that liberalism is sadly the religion of many Jews.

"They're not that interested in the God of Abraham; they're interested in all that liberalism has to offer the world, which we all know is nothing but destruction and chaos and calamity," Markell laments. "But the Bible says that God did blind some of the Jews. They see the liberal cause as more important than the God of Israel, which is a tragedy, and that's really an understatement."

She goes on to submit that the current chaos is very clear sign of the end times.
