One That Calls for a Response

Former Chief of the Israel Defense Forces and now Vice Prime Minister and Strategic Affairs Minister Moshe Ya’alon said: "The mullahs consider the destruction of Israel as just a step on the way to changing the entire world order. … Permanent settlement of the conflict is not easy to achieve as long as the Palestinians do not remove the main obstacle to peace - namely by accepting Israel as a Jewish state. …The Palestinian response to Israeli withdrawals has demonstrated time and again that the dismantling of Israeli settlements or the Israeli withdrawal from territories does not bring peace, but rather, more war."

God says: " 'In that day,' declares the LORD Almighty, 'I will break the yoke off their necks and will tear off their bonds; no longer will foreigners enslave them. Instead, they will serve the LORD their God and David their king, whom I will raise up for them." 'So do not fear, O Jacob my servant; do not be dismayed, O Israel, ’declares the LORD. 'I will surely save you out of a distant place, your descendants from the land of their exile. Jacob will again have peace and security and no one will make him afraid. I am with you and will save you,' declares the LORD. 'Though I completely destroy all the nations among which I scatter you, I will not completely destroy you. I will discipline you but only with justice; I will not let you go entirely unpunished.” (Jeremiah 30:8-11).

The Jerusalem Connection says: The future of Israel’s enemies is certain. They will be destroyed without remedy. Sobering indeed, is the prospect of the United States being counted by God as an enemy of Israel. Yet that seems to be the trajectory President Obama is on with respect to Israel. Witness this administration’s relentless demand for a two-state solution with a divided Jerusalem. Witness the President’s sycophantic pandering to the Muslim world. Witness the President’s toleration of Palestinians to refuse to acknowledge the state of Israel, their refusal to cease violence against Israel and their refusal to abide by any previous agreements. As we pray for President Obama, we best pray that God will sovereignly restrain him from achieving his apparent intentions. “It is a dreadful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.” (Hebrews 10:31)
