Scott Brown's Stand on Israel

Jim HutchensBy Jim Hutchens

Senator (elect) Scott Brown said: “I have always supported the important relationship between the United States and the State of Israel. Our two countries share a core set of national values including dedication to democracy, life, individual freedoms, religious faith & respect, the spirit of entrepreneurship and a vision of a peaceful future. As our closest ally in the Middle East, Israel lives every day under the threat of terror yet shares with the United States an unbroken commitment to peace in the Middle East. Israel’s accomplishments against the longest of odds are a testament to the power of these shared values. …

Ultimately, however, I support a two-state solution that:

  • Is premised on security for Israel and is not imposed by outside parties;
  • Recognizes that a strict return to the 1967 borders is both unrealistic and unsafe.
  • Requires the Palestinians to abide by agreements signed by past Palestinian leaders;
  • Reaffirms Jerusalem as the undivided capital of the State of Israel.”

God says: “I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse.” … “I will be an enemy to your enemies and will oppose those who oppose you.” … “Yahweh, your God will put all these curses on your enemies who hate and persecute you.” (Genesis 12:3; Exodus 23:22; Deuteronomy 30:7)

The Jerusalem Connection says: Fortunately, Senator (elect) Brown’s stand on Israel agrees with the vast majority of his colleagues in both parties, at this time. But that position will be sorely tested in the days ahead. Especially, this is so if the Obama administration continues its incessant pressure for Israel to give up more land for peace and to divide Jerusalem. Soon we will find out who really stands with Israel. The Bible is clear – there will be a remnant of Jews and Christians who believe in the everlasting promises of God to the Jewish people. Be assured, the God of Israel will have the last word.
