Standing with Israel

Jim HutchensBy Jim Hutchens

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, Susan Rice said: [Re: The Goldstone Report]

"It is outrageous that a respected institution like the United Nations provides a platform to spread lies and stories about Israel."
The Goldstone report accuses Israel Defense Forces and Palestinian militants of war crimes and possible crimes against humanity during their Dec. 27-Jan. 18 conflict in the Gaza Strip.
"The United Nations provides a stage for Ahmadinejad, who threatens to annihilate Israel, and lets him stand judge …This is nothing short of ridiculous."
Rice promised that the United States will continue to stand by Israel as a loyal friend in the fight against the Goldstone report.

God says:
“Because of the oppression of the weak and the groaning of the needy, I will now arise, says Yahweh. I will protect them from those who malign them.”… “Do you rulers indeed speak justly? Do you judge uprightly among men? No, in your heart you devise injustice, and your hands mete out violence on the earth.”…“If a ruler listens to lies, all his officials become wicked.” (Psalm 12:5; 59:1-2; Proverbs 29:12).
The Jerusalem Connection says: While the trend lines of the Obama administration do not bode well for Israel, we can be grateful with respect to the scandalous findings of the Goldstone Report, we are standing with Israel. The tried and true axiom still stands,
“I will bless those who bless you and curse those who curse you.” (Genesis 12:3).
If our blessing Israel ever turns to cursing, our demise will soon follow.
