In the Bible we are instructed to be a blessing to the Jewish people. In fact, God states “If you bless Israel, I will bless you.” “But if you curse Israel, I will curse you.” The Israelis secured small slivers of land in 1967 after being brutally attacked without provocation, by Middle east neighboring regimes. To this day, those very nations call for the extermination of Israel, the very country that has been nothing but a blessing toward those who despitefully abuse her. A similar declaration was made in the 1930s and 1940s for the extermination of the Jewish people by the Nazis who were allies and teachers of the Islamists.
The United States has been an ally of Israel since it was settled. But along the way, despite good intentions, sometimes the United States has made some serious blunders when it comes to standing by her number one ally in the Middle East, if not the whole world. World leaders have been Biblically warned. If you divide Israel, I will divide your nation. The reestablishment of Israel was foretold many centuries ago in the Bible. Anyone other than a bigoted leftist understands that Jerusalem should be reestablished as the undivided capital of Israel.
I for one believe the old Biblical warning “NOT TO DIVIDE ISRAEL.” Many United States presidents have tried and failed in the futile effort to divide Israel just to appease Palestinians and others who lay claim to parts of Israel. They foolishly believe that if they just screw over Israel and give the Palestinians what they want, there will be lasting peace, lover and harmony. But truthfully, nothing could be further from the truth. Muslim terrorists want to either rape, enslave, torture to death, or just wipe out many other people all over the world who are not Jewish. Their goal is to turn the world into an Islamic terrorist hell hole.
If you refuse to believe me, look at the difference between Jewish and Christian communities in Israel compare to the Islamic enclaves. It doesn’t matter if they are wealthy Muslim/Palestinian or middle class and poor Jewish communities. Overall the conditions are almost always better in the Christian and Jewish communities. I will have more space to examine exactly why in another upcoming column.
But concerning the issue of dividing Israel, such attempts have not been good for America. I believe that for every action there is a consequence. In the Book Eye to Eye by William Koenig are numerous illustrations of bad things happening every time America planned on throwing Israel under the bus by contemplating discussions to divide in order to appease her sworn enemies.
One example that comes to mind is during the week of October 11th 1999. Jewish settlers on 15 West bank hilltops in Israel were evicted as part of the ongoing “Land for Peace” process, which was actively supported by President Clinton. The settlers resisted the eviction; the confrontation was reported in the national media. While Israel was forcing settlers off the covenant land, the stock market was melting down, with the Dow having its worst weekly drop since 1989. On October 15th, the market lost 266 points (the loss of hundreds of billions of dollars in market capitalization).
That same day, hurricane Irene slammed North Carolina; and the next morning, the powerful Hector Mine 7.1 earth quake rocked the southwest, that was the fifth largest earthquake to hit America in the twentieth century. Neither the hurricane nor the earthquake caused major damage or casualties; but their stories, along with the stock market meltdown shared the nation’s front pages with the reports of Jewish settlers being evicted from God’s covenant land in Israel. There are many more horrific examples of great happenings listed in Eye to Eye, Facing the consequences of dividing Israel, by William Koenig
Could they all be just mere consequences? Even though I believe not, you may investigate the long history of trying to divide Israel followed by disasters and come to your own conclusion. But I for one believe that if president Trump follows through on his promise to move the United States embassy will result in a blessed series of events that will benefit both the United States and Israel.
