Maintaining Our Alliance with Israel

January 27, 2017 0 Comments

Unfortunately, one of the last foreign policy blunders of the previous Obama administration was abstaining from an anti-Israel resolution in the United Nations. This action was contrary to decades of support Israel enjoyed from our country--it was an outright betrayal of one of our closest friends. Even members of the Democratic Party thought Obama's U.N. vote was a serious mistake.

When God called Abraham to "go into a land that I will show thee, and I will make of thee a great nation", he obeyed the Lord and became the father of the nation of Israel (see Gen. 12:1-2). Then God made a very important promise to Abraham: "And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curses thee (Gen. 12:3). In other words, those nations that bless Israel will be blessed, and those nations that curse Israel will be cursed.

Unless our country changes course, and remains absolutely loyal to Israel, as it has been since 1948, we are doomed. The most important foreign policy of the United States (according to the Bible) is steadfast allegiance to the nation of Israel. Our new President has pledged to renew that allegiance, and therefore should be supported by all Christians because of his position. Rebuilding a strong relationship with Benjamin Netanyahu is one of his campaign promises and foreign policy goals.

The Palestinians (especially Hamas) are not interested in a two-state solution to the Middle East conflict--they do not even recognize Israel's right to exist. Their avowed objective is not peaceful "coexistence", but rather to drive Israel into the sea.

How much longer are we going to keep pacifying our enemies and betraying our friends? Truly the time has come for us as a nation to stand up for what we believe, remain loyal to our friends, and stop all this politically correct nonsense. God will bless us if we do what is right!
