Benjamin Netanyahu believes that President Obama cannot fully understand the relevance of Jerusalem to the Jewish people and gave a quote from the Israeli National Anthem which declares that the city is "The hope of two thousand years, the land of Zion". Yet…I am quite sure Barak Hussein Obama can grasp the concept of Mecca…the most holy city in Islam (located in Saudi Arabia). It is the very city that came under Muhammad’s control in 630 and experienced a purging of all non-Muslim religions from its realm. Many Muslims feel that the Jews do not deserve Jerusalem…and that they do. Well, GOD gave it to them and I for one am certainly not going to dispute boundary lines with HIM! If you are a Christian reading this blog let me give you a brief refresher course as to our obligatory protection necessity when it comes to the Jews...and “their” holy city. Romans 11: 16-18 states: (16) If the first piece of dough is holy, the lump is also; and if the root is holy, the branches are too. (17) But if some of the branches were broken off, and you, being a wild olive, were grafted in among them and became partaker with them of the rich root of the olive tree, (18) do not be arrogant toward the branches; but if you are arrogant, remember that it is not you who supports the root, but the root supports you. Because of the transgressions of the Jews a door of salvation was opened to the Gentiles (non-Jews) to make them (the Jews) jealous and eventually accept God’s son. We are loved by GOD, but we are waiting with GOD for their “penitent” return. So, don’t get comfy thinking the Jewish people are no longer relevant to our existence or that the land mass GOD gave to them thousands of years ago is somehow “up for grabs”. GOD has a purpose for that real estate and it is not for mere mortals to second guess or sell it out from under HIS "chosen" tenants…the Jews.
Note: If I have to choose sides...I'll pick GOD'S everytime.
May God bless America...and may America deserve it!
