The latest snub by President Obama to Israel is his refusal to attend Prime Minister Netanyahu’s speech before Congress and to have Vice President Biden also be conspicuously absent. Also many Democrat lawmakers are also planning to not attend.
Many from both sides of the isle have expressed concern that President Obama seems to be incapable of calling ISIS, Hamas, Hezbollah, and other radical Islamic groups terrorists or to develop a cohesive strategy against them. Indeed, liberals in government and in the news media generally seem to have trouble calling acts of terrorism by Muslims, terrorism. This appears to be true even when committed on US soil by Islamic radicals who themselves claim to be carrying out jihad, such as the Fort Hood shooter, Major Nidal Hassan! It has taken them years to finally be forced to change that incident’s label from “workplace violence” to an act of terrorism! All of these liberals are Democrats. In fact under this administration, Islamic supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood have been placed in sensitive positions in our government security apparatus, such as the CIA and Homeland Security.
While complaining that Netanyahu is undercutting the President’s diplomatic work in Iran by his speaking to Congress, this President does not seem to think sending political teams to Israel to work against the Prime Minister in his upcoming election is unethical! Oh, I forgot – you can’t be unethical if you’re liberal, only if you are conservative!
Lest you think this article is too ‘political’ for a blog which concentrates mostly on prophesy – think again. God is very political!
Now therefore, be wise, O kings; Be instructed, you judges of the earth. Serve the LORD with fear, And rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, lest He be angry, And you perish in the way, When His wrath is kindled but a little. – Psalm 2:10-11
I will also gather all nations, And bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat; And I will enter into judgment with them there On account of My people, My heritage Israel, Whom they have scattered among the nations; They have also divided up My land. – Joel 3:2
The liberal Democrats and Republicans and Islamic sympathizers in this administration may not believe in God or in His Word but that will not stop His judgments from coming upon them if they oppose His plans. They will learn first hand just how ‘political’ He can be!
On a purely secular note, how foolish to prefer undemocratic countries in the Mid East who hate us and frequently march in the streets proclaiming that hatred, over a democratic country that has shown consistent support for us since its re-establishment – Israel? How foolish to want to divide up their small land in favor of their enemies who are always plotting for our downfall? The administration who follows this course is indeed foolish – or perhaps just un-American.
