From Bad to Worse

Filed under: All Posts — brogsblog @ 6:04 pm

We already had plenty to worry about.  The Administration’s manufacture of a crisis with Israel over housing in a Jewish neighborhood in East Jerusalem was a disturbing departure from past US policy.  Despite repeated denials and walk-backs, the President’s treatment of Prime Minister Netanyahu at the White House had the look and feel of a strange snub of an ally’s elected leader.

Yet last week brought what may well be the most disturbing news of all.  The Obama Administration has broken an important policy and psychological barrier.  For the first time in my memory, an American administration has officially embraced the goal of eliminating Israel’s nuclear weapons.  Last week, the US joined Russia, Britain, France and China in issuing a statement expressing support for making the Middle East a “nuclear free” zone.

Making matters even worse, Secretary of State Clinton announced last week that the US not only supports a nuclear-free Middle East in principle, but is also “prepared to support practical measures that will move us toward achieving that objective.”

Like the Netanyahu snub, the Administration has tried to walk back this provocative new approach.  Spokesmen have explained that these statements are intended to secure broader support for sanctions against Iran’s nuclear program.  Assurances have been made that there is no intention to pressure Israel to give up its nuclear weapons.

Yet the enormous danger of this position is becoming more obvious by the day.  Permitting any kind of equivalency between Israel’s nukes and those of Iran forfeits the moral high ground for a most dubious short term advantage.  At a time when Iran’s Ahmadinejad is desperate to divert attention from his nuclear program, we should not be helping to do exactly that.

Let’s be clear.  Israel is a democracy surrounded by neighbors that have threatened to destroy her, attempted to destroy her, or both.  Israel’s nuclear weapons are purely defensive — their purpose is to deter the very destruction so often plotted and sought.  Iran, on the other hand, is one of those neighbors that has threatened to destroy Israel.  Iran is the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism.  Iran wants nuclear weapons for offensive purposes.  Treating these two nations the same blurs what should be black and white.  It erodes borders that should be sharp.  It endangers what should be sacrosanct.

The Administration’s policy of accommodation has not worked thus far.  Doubling down on this policy by bringing Israel’s nukes into the mix is simply reckless.  After all, the President already adopted the tone of moral equivalency between Israel and the Palestinians in his Cairo speech.  He already equated apartments in Jerusalem with incitement to terror (truth be told, he’s been tougher on the apartments….).  He’s already tried to win over the moderates and the world with an even hand.  Yet the only discernible results thus far have been an increase in Palestinian demands and intransigence.  The fact that Palestinian consent to indirect talks is now hailed as a victory shows just how far the situation has deteriorated.

Less than a week old, the Administrations new approach to Israel’s nukes appears to have already borne some very bitter fruit.  According to the Associated Press, the topic of “Israeli nuclear capabilities” has for the first time been included as an agenda item before the board of the International Atomic Energy Agency.  In the past, the US has prevented this body from addressing Israel’s nukes.  This meeting is scheduled to take place in early June, and the IAEA Board has the power to refer matters to the UN Security Council.  Let’s pray it’s not too late to put the genie back in the bottle.

  2. I agree with Molly.

  3. Very disturbing to me what these Socialists are trying do to undermine the National Security of Israel as well as our own National Security. I’m sick and tired of this man, Obama, imposing his vision of an entitlement Utopia on we freedom loving AMERICANS at whatever the cost!

    Comment by Jacob Kurtz — May 11, 2010 @ 12:23 am

  4. With out a doubt I support Isreal. This administration does not speak for me. As we have read in Judges 7. God’s strength is brought out from “weakness”. Just maybe God will step in himself. America needs to support Isreal for it’s own sake. Jehova God is Isreal’s and our strength. Our Christ’s return is approaching, prepare and God bless Isreal and the United States of America.

    Comment by Jeff Vick — May 11, 2010 @ 12:23 am

  5. The US needs to be very careful in this approach. It states in the Bible that God will bless those that side with Isreal (well this is not a direct quote, but close)..if the US sides against Isreal then the USA had better look out as God will not look kindly upon such a stand.

    Comment by pam — May 11, 2010 @ 12:29 am

  6. There are enough Christians united for Israel in America and around the world to stand up and denounce the Obama-Clinton no nukes in the middle-east. How about a demonstration to the Whitehouse 1. Support of Israel 2. Keep Israel out of the no nukes talks.

    It is imperative that Israel be allowed to defend itself.

    Obama is digging the grave for America so American people need to stand up to them

    Comment by Cathrine Brougham — May 11, 2010 @ 12:30 am

  7. The President and his cabinet are all loonies as i see them.
    We need to run them out of office and defend our rights.
    Israel’s nukes should stay in place as should ours.
    I can only hope that the population sees where hes leading us, and its straight to HELL.

  8. I have trouble feeling
    the the manner in which you present your objection could be construed as Christian.
    The people of Israel have faults also. I have worked cases showing these faults.

    Comment by Dr. Clyde B. Garrett. Jr., Esq. — May 11, 2010 @ 12:53 am

  9. This president’s whole approach to the Middle East has been reckless. He’s endangered Israel, and he’s also endangered us here in the United States. As far as moral equivalency is concerned, I have to wonder if this president has any moral compass to direct him at all. I was reading another blog article today about freezing construction in Jerusalem, and the State Department simply twisted what the Israelis said to make it sound like construction had been frozen and a concession had been made to bring the Palestinians back to the negotiating table. If we sacrifice our integrity, not even our enemies and opponents can believe anything we say. That’s no way to make peace. I may have been angry with President Bush, but I felt safer with him in the White House. I have never voted Republican in my life, but I’m going to now. I worked as a volunteer on Bill Clinton’s election campaign (am I sorry now)! Mr. Brog, I enjoyed your post, but I would very much like to hear your ideas on just how we can put the genie back in the bottle at this point since Obama has chosen to do all of his thinking out loud. I look forward to hearing your ideas.

  10. “American administration has officially embraced the goal of eliminating Israel’s nuclear weapons.” (What?!) Did the IAEA start this? Just when I thought ElBaradei (ex-IAEA president) was the problematic guy.

    “the US joined Russia, Britain, France and China in issuing a statement expressing support for making the Middle East a “nuclear free” zone.” haha. good luck:

    http://www.scribd.com/full/31174562?access_key=key-24yvnpbhd90hmuic4atu

    How about starting with Dr. AQ Khan?

    The Egyptians from the American University in Cairo (where I’m going for a Baker III Institute Student Diplomatic Colloquium this June) want to discuss “casual” instead of academic issues in domestic and foreign policy; they proposed John J. Mearsheimer’s anti-Semitic book about the U.S. Israel Lobby (which they’ve obviously been studying). It gives me creeps.

    Comment by Ani — May 11, 2010 @ 1:00 am

  11. The deterrence value of Israel’s unknown stock of nuclear weapons is inestimable, and for an American administration to make efforts to undermine that is reprehensible, at the very least. It’s undeniable that Obama has taken a clearly adversarial position against Israel. We must keep the pressure on congress, where support is far greater, to overcome Obama’s attacks on the Jewish state. Great article, David! G-d bless you!

    Comment by Robert Hand — May 11, 2010 @ 1:16 am

  12. Great article David. I have never been so disgusted with a president as I am with this one. I have to wonder if aipac would recieve him as warmly as they did when he was campaining. I remember just the picture of Carter drew boo’s from the audience. Obama’s pic today?

    Comment by Roger Redding — May 11, 2010 @ 1:25 am

  13. Yes, the post is excellent. Just points out the pathetic thinking and policy of this administration.

    Comment by Doyle — May 11, 2010 @ 1:51 am

  14. You are right to be concerned. Obama will respond only to political pressure. He target evangelical Christians, Jews, Israel, and conservataives to the exact extent that we fail to prevent it. I see no sense of moral decency in this administration. Unfortunately the liberal Christians and Jews who support Obama are desert to be eaten after devouring the strength, wealth, and moral fiber of the nation. Then we will have Sharia unless those of us who are awake act with God’s help to block this great evil .

  15. what are these people thinking. do they even have a bible dont they know israel has always been gods people.our president speaks god bless on tv but does he even know the meaning of god bless

    Comment by paul martinez — May 11, 2010 @ 3:04 am

  16. Americans, for the most part are not served well by the media in that they consistently leave out important information that if revealed would have a significant effect on public opinion and more than likely public policy.

    In my personal opinion, it would be wise for Americans to familiarize themselves with the work of Melanie Philipps, an award winnig journaist from Great Britain. Her latest book, The World Turned Upside Down: The Global Battle Over God, Truth and Power will hopefully awaken Americans and Brits alike from the hypnotic media trance to which we have become accustomed. Ms. Phillips is also author of Londonistan in which she reasearches the takeover of Europe by extreme Islamist thought as a result of our new “extreme” tolerance and political correctness which cannot be questioned.

    While open, civil and honest debate should be welcomed regarding Israel or any Middle Eastern country for that matter, it does appear that Israel continues to be singled out as the aggressor with no bounds, when in fact it has and enforces the most rules of engagement of any country in the world, all to appease its ally the United States and its enemies bent on the total destruction of the Jewish State.

    There are other voices “crying in the wilderness” with a more balanced perspective regarding Israel’s right to security than the present U.S. administration. Bat Ye’or, considered one of the foremeost experts on the rise of Islam in Europe and its consequences for the rest of the world. Also, Caroline Glick, journalist, columnist and author of the book Shackeled Warrior: Israel and the Global Jihad.

    The truth is this; “if it was not for Christians, Israel would be completly alone”. I heard so many Israelis and American Jews state those very words at the CUFI Booth set up at the Israel Independence Day Celebration in Las Vegas, NV on April 25, 2010 at the Venitian Hotel. I was, quite frankly, in shock. At least 95% of the people that came over to the booth said only positive things about the Chritians Zionists and CUFI in particular.

    It is extremely important that we continue inform ourselves about the issues on a daily basis so that we can build bridges using accurate information and persuasive dialogue with compassion and caring for Israel and its people.

    Comment by Nelson E. Santiago — May 11, 2010 @ 3:07 am

  17. Israel should just tell the Obama administration to stick it. Most American Christians which is about 75% of the population support Israel in anything that they do. It is only the load mouthed far left that dont like Israel or the Christians. Israel needs to stand firm and never give up any of its land to anyone. God will protect her.

    Comment by gene — May 11, 2010 @ 3:12 am

  18. I think it’s disgraceful what this administration is doing to Gods chosen people. Israel has the right to defend itself

    Comment by jody — May 11, 2010 @ 3:24 am

  19. It appears to me that this is the starting point of the Armageddon war. Do not worry! Our Mighty God is well able to handle everything in grant style as He purposed. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, Israel, its people and show your support along with all saints. Never side with Israel’s enemies even if it appears humane, logical, patriotic, ethical, and fair. The Supreme Judge is God Almighty; Yahweh is His name and has given His verdict. Dear friend if you are not saved get saved you and your household; remember the only name through which anyone can be saved is Yeshua the Messiah.
    “It will be at the same time when Gog comes against the land of Israel, says the Lord God, that my fury will be aroused…on that day the land of Israel will be greatly shaken…
    and everyone on the face of the earth will shake at my presence (appearing).”
    Ezekiel 38:18-20
    “When you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then realize that its desolation is near.”
    Luke 21:20

    “And I perceived heaven open, and lo! a white horse. And He Who is sitting on it is called ‘Faithful and True,’ and in righteousness is He judging and battling. Now His eyes are a flame of fire, and on His head are many diadems, having names written of which no one except Himself is aware, and He is clothed in a cloak dipped in blood, and His name is called ‘The Word of God.’ And the armies in heaven, dressed in cambric, white and clean, followed Him on white horses. And out of His mouth a sharp blade is issuing, that with it He should be smiting the nations. And He will be shepherding them with an iron club. And He is treading the wine trough of the fury of the indignation of God, the Almighty. And on His cloak and on His thigh He has a name written: ‘King of kings and Lord of lords . . . .’
    “And I perceived the wild beast and the kings of the earth and their armies, gathered to do battle with Him Who is sitting on the horse and with His army. And the wild beast is arrested, and with it the false prophet who does the signs in its sight, by which he deceives those getting the emblem of the wild beast, and those worshiping its image. Living, the two were cast into the lake of fire burning with sulphur. And the rest were killed with the blade which is coming out of the mouth of Him Who is sitting on the horse. And all the birds are satisfied with their flesh” (Rev.19:11-21).
    “‘For what reason is there red on Thy clothing, and Thy garments are as the treader’s in a wine trough?’ ‘The winepress I trod alone, and of the peoples there is no man with Me, and I am treading them in My anger, and trampling them in My fury, and their gore is spattering on My garments, and all My clothing I sully. For the day of vengeance came for them, and the year of My redeemed has come.’” – Isaiah 63:2-4
    “Yahweh is roaring from the height, and is giving forth His voice from His holy habitation . . . .Yahweh has a contention with the nations. He enters into judgment with all flesh. The wicked He gives to the sword . . . . They shall not be bewailed, nor gathered, nor entombed. They shall become for manure on the surface of the ground.” Jeremiah 25:30-33
    “And this shall come to be the stroke with which Yahweh will strike all the peoples who mustered their hosts against Jerusalem: Putrefied is their flesh, yet they are standing on their feet, and their eyes shall putrefy in their holes, and their tongue shall putrefy in their mouths.” – Zechariah 14:12

  20. I know I am not going to change anyone’s mind here with couple of sentences here. I think the Obama’s administration is doing what they believe is the best for America and the Middle East Peace Process. It seems hypocritical to say that that only the super power/Israel can have nuclear WMD and Iran and other 3rd world countries can’t, just because we Christians think they are evil. So, to be fair, nobody can have one. Of course, I am sure both Israel and Iran will continue to do what is in their best interest, ie, continue with their own WMD production (but secretly now). So, it really doesn’t matter what the Obama administration said or didn’t say. The WMD proliferation will continue and the fights will go on, at least for now. Now, exactly what did the liberal Christians and the far left have to do with Obama’s new outlook? Obama was elected because American people were tired of 8 years of Republicans in the White House and the mess they created. Obama was elected by the American people, both liberals and non liberals, both far left and middle left. Plus, isn’t it better to be politically correct, than incorrect?

  21. It is my prayer that there are enough righteous people in the USA to speak up for the nation of Israel. Please don’t remain silent and let the Obama administration be responsible for another Holocaust.

    Comment by Lyn — May 11, 2010 @ 8:27 am

  22. American and Israel share a special bond, is unique among all nations. Like America, Israel is a strong democracy, a symbol of freedom, and an oasis of liberty, a home to the oppressed and persecuted (Christians and Jews).
    And if we are honest we have to make a distinction between an Israel that wants to live in peace and others who wants Israel wiped out. The Israelis were told to give up land for peace; they gave up the land, but got no peace. Now give up your defense system and get what in return.
    We must show the world that this are signals of the upcoming end of times and that we have control of some situations lets make our stand. Isaiah 10:10 talks about it all nations shall look up to Him, and all nations will receive peace. Is US embracing with integrity “In God we trust”.
    Shalom

  23. One only need look at the inner cities of Chicago, NY, CA, DC, Boston, Md.-Baltimore to see how taking away the rights of a person to own a firearm, because the perps have caused terror with firearms could end. Even applying this to a nation will end with evil not obeying the rules and attacking Israel even more viciously! NEVER GIVE IN ISRAEL TO THIS DECEPTION!! The only thing holding back the evil against the sovereign nation of Israel is the Most High G-d and the ambiquious policy of nuclear weapons in Israel. Shalom

  24. I think we can all pray, whole-heartedly, Psalms 109.

    Comment by Suellen — May 11, 2010 @ 11:42 am

  25. As an American citizen, a Vietnam Veteran, and a Christian I am appalled at the attitude of our President and his administration toward Israel. If we don’t support Israel we are no better than those who out to destroy them. I ask Israel to please forgive the American administration and pray for them, we will try to replace them in the next election. I stand in support of you and your stand not to give up land that God Himself gave you and no one else has a right to it!
    God bless and keep you!

    Comment by Bradley Routh — May 11, 2010 @ 11:47 am

  26. I am saddened by the present rift in the relationship between our country and Israel but I still believe in God’s intervention. We need to pray and speak out for Israel. We are also enjoined to pray for our leaders for God’s wisdom and direction. God still rules in the affairs of men. Some comments make you feel our present leaders were just a bunch of demons sent from hell to inflict evil on us and on Israel. This is neither true nor biblical. Let’s not color our political convictions with our faith. If we must have results, we have to do it God’s way – pray in faith, motivated by love.

    Comment by Barry — May 11, 2010 @ 12:02 pm

  27. World Nuuc. ban for all or none? The end is near just hope its in my life time. Just have faith every thing is going to be ok weather here or in heaven. Evil has no control in heaven. Dont be afraid of evil keep fighting for whats right even if you feel the end product will be the same.

  29. America is angry not with Israel but with this progrssive socialist pro Palestine Administion. Just keep in mind thee is another election here un two and half years.They will be voted out like a sumani.The Prime Minister Of Israel is a Patriot and a World leader for peace and a supported of the Christian faith. Semper Fi!!!

  30. This will be our fourth summit this July. I pray this most important issue be made our battle cry when we storm the halls of our so-called leaders. We have the hope, of hope itself. Should anything surprise us anymore?

  31. I believe in the faithfulness of our great God concerning Israel. He is still thesame God that fought for their fathers and He will fight for them. His eyes is over the land-Deut.11:12.

    Comment by Adeola Sam-Ozovehe — May 11, 2010 @ 1:48 pm

  32. it’s always been a mind should I say boggling(?)the US which is Israel’s closest ally should just change it’s stand regarding the welfare of Jewish individual. they’re most of the time like that ever since you look back to the times when those poor European immigrants that almost never survived the holocaust(am sorry for bringing this out)on a boat, (remember?)I don’t know if some of those dear children are still with us today, how they (US) willingly & consciously ignored them in not allowing them to dock in their own port.
    they(US) knew that PLO’s are terrorist & even hurt their own people, yet every time those murderers ask assistance when they’re being attacted back by these Israeli defenders by precision ally bomb their well known location,they would come to the PLO’s rescue!!!
    I just don’t understand it!!!

    Comment by lowry del j. escanlar — May 11, 2010 @ 1:56 pm

  33. We need to all send emails to the President protesting the treatment of Israel by his administration. Just go to http://www.whitehouse.gov, and contact them. I have alredy done this. What this administration is doing to Israel is completely unacceptable. And pray!

    Comment by Roy Bennett — May 11, 2010 @ 2:07 pm

  34. I am amazed how many people are responding in outrage but not saying that prophesy is being fulfilled! We are certainly at the beginning of the end times and the Bible tells us that Israel will stand alone. We are now seeing how America is retreating from helping God’s people and God’s Holy Land! Shame on the people of this country who are rejecting God’s Word! These traitors of Israel will pay the ultimate price! But be assured that our Holy Father and Lord Almighty will prevail! There is no army on earth that can wipe out Israel! They will be going through some very rough times but the enemy will be annihilated! Non Christians still have a chance to ask God for forgiveness and make Him ruler of your life! Those who truly believe in Him will likely be raptured soon! Those who are left behind will have a very difficult life and will find it much harder to receive salvation since evil will reign on this earth! The signs of the end times is being revealed almost weekly! I encourage all seekers of truth to read up about prophesy! The Bible is never wrong and much of what has been prophesized in the Bible has already come to pass! You need to read how it all ends on earth, and trust in God to save you from eternal hell!

    Comment by Tim O'Brien — May 11, 2010 @ 2:41 pm

  35. We know that God is going to rescue Israel. We do not know if He will rescue America because of our disobedience but we also know that God will save all who have given their life to Jesus and who are praying for Israel. We truly need to pray both Psalms 108 and 109 over Israel and America and spead the word of God’s love and protection for the Jewish people and His destructin of all who oppose Israel. Claim angelic protection and victory for all Jews and all Christians. Claim victory and praise God for His protection. His word said it and it is true. Meanwhile write every person in government, tell every friend and preach it in the pulpits.

    God Bless you for your mission for God’s truth to be known and the warnings of the destruction this president and government has brough6t on Israel and America as well, that God will punish the evil ones and that we will stay on our knees in prayer.

  36. I agree completely. Israel is God’s firstborn. If we do not stand up for Israel we will be headed down a path to destruction.

    Comment by Harold McGee — May 11, 2010 @ 5:38 pm

  37. I certainly agree that we should maintain a stance of prayer for Israel; however, this gloom and doom picture constantly portrayed on your website concerns me. What is unraveling before us is the prophecy of the Most High God, the Great I AM, according to His Word. If you are Christians, followers of Jesus Christ, then there should be no spirit of fear ( II Timothy 1:7). Pastor Hagee, I commend you for your dedication to CUFI through your obedience to the Holy Spirit, but may I suggest that each of us must be obedient to the Holy Spirit, according to where He wants us to be in the Lord’s timing. We are not all called to attend the summit, and for CUFI to send emails summoning members to be there is like stepping on the Holy Spirit’s toes (I Corinthians 3:5-9). WHERE IS OUR FAITH? (Matthew 24: 6-7. We know the the Great I AM is omnipotent and He is in control of all the events unfolding before us; therefore, we should keep our eyes on Him and cry out to Him in humility and gratefulness. Praise His Name!

  38. While I will stand for Israel in every way I can, I also see a bigger picture.God is setting everything up for the final showdown!! The US losing it’s power is a must. The leaders today are playing right into Satan’s hand. We, as, Christians must face God and make a choice….stand with the moral and spiritual degenerates of this world..or…STAND WITH GOD AND WITH HIS PEOPLE AT WHATEVER COST!! I do not believe we will change Washington’s mind!!! The Republicans talk out of both sides of their mouth, while the Democrats have no trouble just spuing their venom outright. Either way…all nations will come against Israel or will stand by and do nothing when all this comes down…and..”we the people” will pay the price!! It is what we do as individuals that we will answer for. It is a DIALY way of life to love God’s people and give to their cause as God directs us!!! Be blessed in your endeavors!!

  40. I am deeply grieved at the way our countries leaders are treating Israel. We know what the Word of God says about the end times. I guess I always thought our country would be side by side come what may with Israel. It seems satan has other plans. Lets pray & hold this situation up before God. Do not be surprised at what is happening in the world though–the Biblical prophet foretold this. But lets do our part as the body of Christ!

    Comment by Sandy — May 11, 2010 @ 8:11 pm

  41. Arabs have a single goal-total victory over Israel.Since they have never achieved victory in battles against the tiny Israel, they want Israel to sign peacefully the nuclear free Middle East and get rids of it’s nuclear bombs-by signing the treaty they know Israel will be signing it’s own death certificate-a death which the Arabs have been dreaming for more then sixty plus years. Israel should never sign such a deal or even considered one- which will bring it’s own demise.

  42. in re: posts #s 25*,27-33,35&36,38-41, amen! DB great post as always! I have to wonder how the “world” would react if the US had a museum in OUR nations capital dedicated to the active seeking of any other countries’ destruction, such as the decades old one in Tehran,… or how about in our next internal political campaign, we order our citizens to march in the streets for all nations to see & hear, “Death to…(country of choice???)…such as Iran does regularly under its current regime, (for any American who might be reading this & doesn’t know already, the countries Iran chooses to chant the Death wish to are Israel & America), as they routinely stomp on & burn both of our flags, & have been doing so for decades,… as most of us know this list of undeniable, asymmetrically disproportionate hypocrisy & insanity goes on far too long for this blog so I have just 1 more “q” for this post,… How does this administration get away with outright & blatant contempt & mocking of standing current congressional laws,… in this case I refer to the Jerusalem Act, which requires the US to keep an embassy in Jerusalem, passed into law in the mid-90’s, & signed into law by none other than the husband of our Sec of State, Clinton?! I don’t want to see the embassy in Tel-Aviv removed, by NO means, but the US law specifically requires the main embassy to be in the Israeli Capital, Jerusalem! The terroristic attacks on our former embassy there that precipitated our withdrawl were many years ago, & with a written exceptional provision & promise of eminent return (which was removed, possibly illegally, by this President, for the first time in history!), as soon as the safety of our personnel could be more assured by circumstances on the ground there, which has been more than reproven by them (Israel), especially since the Israelis have had police & strategic control for years now. I think I know why the admin is doing this, but regardless of any excuses, I have to say it is truly despicable, unacceptable, & moreover, against our own Federal Law! Outrageous!

  43. WMD are not good for any country. To have them as a deterrent makes little sense. The denotation of one of these weapons will have lasting effects for the world but less ground zero for the target zone.

  44. It is my belief, that the day the U.S.A. turns against Israel, we are doomed. I also believe this administration is in office to help bring end time about, faster. GOD help us.

  45. I know we must stand w/Israel. I am confused about the West Bank. Isn’t that where the Isralies forced the Jews to give up their houses? And now they want to build housing in the same place or is this a different place. I don’t think that Israel should be giving up anything to the muslims. They should be taking back what is theirs & never, never give in for peace purposes. There will never be peace in the East. Giving & taking back just makes more problems & confusion. I do stand for Israel because they are God’s people & the Bible tells me to. However, Israel needs to make up their mind & stick to it. God will not let them be defeated. But thier actions defeat them. They are surrounded by enemies. They must make decisions & stick by what they say & do it for their own people’s good.

  46. I tottaly agree; ) I too grieve for our country’s future under this new President as our leader..It seems he has us confused as wanting to become a Socialist country which to me is as close to being communist as I see it. We didn’t fight for our country’s rights as Americans to come to this rule of loosing our Freedom..Our beloved ansestors would turn over in their graves no doubt.. We somehow let in people from these third world countries who do not respect our way of life and democracy..by way of Obama’s Socialist party. Sadly feels like the 2nd coming of Hitler in another form. This is not good as what he did to the Jewish people I will never forget.
    Obama could easily do this to us too. Spiritually I pray for his leadership to end abrubtly. and for us to get together and help Isreal to become strong against these corrupted takeovers.. He will weaken Isreal with his orders for her to take down her nuclear missles while Iran is laughing his sadistic Muslim head off at us and Israel. And yet he still byes it . like we should be cozy with Iran and the radical muslims who want us dead..I pray the hand of God to weaken his grip of America and Israel and give him a wake up call seriously! Its like hes taken ill mentally and is taking care of the terrorist behind our backs while lying to us as though he’s taking care of America and the world. Not feeling real cozy under his leadership of America anytime soon..Peace be with us and Israel..always..
