Does Israel Have Rights?

At a time when President Obama is trying to force Israel into a disastrous agreement with the Palestinians, who will not even agree that Israel has a right to be a State, it is time for Christians to speak out. The nations are sacrificing Israel in order to keep secure the favor of their oil-supplying Muslim oil barons. Last week, the UN Foreign Policy chief, Javier Solana, went a step too far. He had the audacity to propose that the United Nations unilaterally declare a Palestinian State. That is a complete betrayal of the founding purposes on which the UN was created.

I believe that Israel has the right to build anywhere in greater Israel. The Muslim nations of the Middle East attacked them in June 1967 in an effort to annihilate them. Israel begged Jordan, who controlled the West Bank and Jerusalem, not to join the other Muslim forces and promised them that they would not attack them. Jordan did and Israel quickly defeated them and captured the West Bank and Jerusalem. So since then, the so-called West Bank and East Jerusalem has been part of Israel by right of self-defense and conquest.

This same right of ownership by conquest underlies virtually every Nation in the world today. If you will trace back to their beginning, every Nation was founded upon land gained by conquest. The United States of America certainly is founded on that premise. We took land from the Indians, Mexicans, French and English. And we have the unquestioned right to keep it. So do the Israelis.

However, there is a different set of rules the world wants to force upon Israel. In the case of the U.S. in particular and the Western Nations in general, we are presently much more concerned about keeping the oil supplying Muslim oil barons happy than we are about backing Israel's just rights as a sovereign nation. And this is before we even get to the issue of their solemn God-given Covenant in which God gave them the title deed to specific land to which He has returned them from a worldwide dispersion according to His promise.

Israel is the only nation on earth that has a title deed to their land from the Creator. And the Creator has sworn on oath that He will see that a believing remnant of Israel will have a nation on this land forever. And God has warned that all peoples that try to take it from them will be destroyed. These are promises that are in many passages of the Word of God - not just in a few. So President Obama beware - as well as all the Muslim nations seeking to annihilate Israel!

For the LORD has sworn:
Thus says the LORD, Who gives the sun for a light by day, The ordinances of the moon and the stars for a light by night, Who disturbs the sea, And its waves roar (The LORD of hosts is His name): " If those ordinances depart From before Me, says the LORD, THEN THE SEED OF ISRAEL SHALL ALSO CEASE FROM BEING A NATION BEFORE ME FOREVER. Thus says the LORD: " If heaven above can be measured, And the foundations of the earth searched out beneath, I will also cast off all the seed of Israel For all that they have done, says the LORD." (Jeremiah 31:35-37)
Since the sun, moon and stars are still in their prescribed orbit and purpose, I declare Israel still has the right to exist as a Jewish State. Selah!
