On May 3-6, I warned that the United States, by failing to support Israel, was setting itself up for the judgment of God. You would think that after the terrorist attack of 9-11-2001, the space shuttle Columbia (2003), hurricanes Ivan, Frances, and Charlie (2004), Catrina (2005), the Virginia Tech massacre (2007), the "super Tuesday" tornadoes (2008), the Fort Hood massacre (2009), the oil rig Deep Water Horizon (2010), and 487 tornadoes in April (2011), people would start to see "the handwriting on the wall" (see the source of that saying in Dan. 5:1-31). Apparently not.
Today's Washington Post had this to say:
Romney says Obama 'threw Israel under the bus' in (yesterday's) speech on Middle East
HANOVER, N.H. — Republicans looking to unseat President Barack Obama charged that he undermined the sensitive and delicate negotiations for Middle East peace with his outline for resumed talks between Israelis and Palestinians.
Obama, Netanyahu to meet at White House following president's challenge to Israel on peace
WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama is set to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu a day after challenging the Israeli leader to cede more territory than he wants to in pursuit of peace with the Palestinians.
Of course, the Washington Post, being the liberal rag that it is, had to say the motive of Republican criticism was purely political in the first article, and used the word "challenging" instead of "insisting," or even "demanding," in the second article. It will be interesting to see what Al Sharpton has to say about the speech; he recently criticized President Obama for demanding that Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak resign. Somehow, I doubt that the outspoken, self-appointed spokesman for the down-trodden will care one iota about Obama's obvious demagoguery concerning Israel.
My advice to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is to read his Tanakh (Hebrew Old Testament), to see how effective Israel was in making alliances for protection and giving bribes to enemies (in this case, land for peace). It was only when God's people trusted Him, that they were protected from destruction. America is not your savior, and land will not keep Ishmael's children from hating you. Trust only in the Lord.
And my warning to President Obama: if you can not see the handwriting on the wall, you ain't seen nuttin yet! If you fail to recognize God's chastisement due to America's foreign policy concerning Israel, I assure you, His judgments are far more severe. Remember, He blesses those who support His people, and He curses those who don't (Gen. 12:1-3).
