rocket-480After three Israeli teens (Naftali Fraenkel, Eyal Yifrach and Gilad Sha’ar) were kidnapped and murdered by Hamas (shot in the back of the head and mutilated) Israel struck back with air power and put a serious hurt on the bad boys.

Like America, Israel has it share of morons and a group of them picked out an innocent Palestinian kid and killed him (burning him alive) to avenge the murder of the three Israeli’s. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu acted again and rounded them up, bringing the full weight of the Israeli justice system down on them.

Meanwhile, ‘President Cool’ was in no hurry to get involved. He didn’t lift a finger to help our guys before they were slaughtered, so why would he help Israel?

Obama, Secretary of State John Kerry and Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel have a track record of sabotaging Israel’s right to defend themselves against those who want to wipe them off the face of the planet (Psalm 83:4).

Anne Bayefsky lays out the latest for us:

June 2, – President Obama emboldened Hamas by immediately announcing that American support and financial aid would keep flowing to a newly formed Palestinian unity government that included the terrorist organization. While the rockets flew and the kidnappers murdered, the State Department continued to insist on the existence of a phantasmagorical technocratic terrorist.

July 2 – State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki explained a unity government between Hamas and Fatah – that was mysteriously missing the Hamas half. “They’re not a part of the technocratic government,” she said. “Obviously, the technocratic government is different from the reconciliation process. Obviously, everything’s linked. It’s all – but it’s different.”
Over 18 days, Obama never called Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu or Palestinian leader Mahboud Abbas to voice concern over the abduction of Fraenkel, a dual American-Israeli citizen.

In fact, Obama never publicly commented on the kidnapping of this American boy, or the grotesque anti-Semitism and support for the kidnapping that mushroomed across Palestinian society while he stayed silent – until the lifeless bodies of Fraenkel and the other boys were discovered on June 30.

July 8 – While hundreds of rockets were slamming into Israel and targeting Tel Aviv, Middle East Coordinator Philip Gordon was dispatched to Tel Aviv to slam Israel too. Evidently refusing to believe his lying eyes Gordon blames Israel for “no movement on the political track” and threatened it with “international isolation.”

July 10 – Obama did call Netanyahu complaining about the reported police maltreatment of an American-Palestinian teenager who seems to have thought going to a riot in a war zone was a good way to spend a summer vacation. And Obama prioritized this case – to the highest level possible in the world of diplomacy – knowing that the State Department had already descended on Israeli authorities within hours, and that Israeli officials had already taken action to address it. To this day, the Obama administration has refused to admit there was any Palestinian perpetrator involved in the teens’ kidnap and murder.

Finally, the president’s overriding message has been one of obscene moral relativism. Begrudging throwaway lines about Israeli self-defense are routinely accompanied by appeals for “all sides” to “restrain” themselves – the democratic state under attack and the genocidal terrorist organization.

When Obama did write a condolence message to the families of Naftali, Eyal and Gilad, he used it as an opportunity to lecture Israel, and the euphemistic “all parties,” “to refrain from steps that could further destabilize the situation.”

A dozen times over the past three weeks, both during the kidnap-murders and the Gaza rocket attacks, the press briefings of the State Department spokesman have included: “We encourage all sides to exercise restraint.”

Before he had ever called Netanyahu on the Hamas terror attacks – Obama instructed Israel’s democratically elected leaders from the op-ed pages of an Israeli newspaper: “All parties must exercise restraint…” 

When Obama finally picked up a phone and called Netanyahu on July 10, he “urged both sides not to escalate the crisis and to restore calm.”

Given that Hamas’ official creed is to kill Jews everywhere and obliterate Israel, the president’s orders were directed to a party of one – the one under attack.

The fact is that in the middle of one more variation of the Arab war against the Jews, President Obama did not call Israel’s leader to offer unwavering support for Israel’s right of self-defense. On the contrary, he wants a cease-fire now. Having done everything in his power to rescue Hamas politically, he is now trying to save it materially.

It may seem mystifying why the president of the United States should talk the talk of self-defense but walk the walk of self-defeat. But this is the same man who saved Bashar al-Assad, strengthened Vladimir Putin and legitimized Hassan Rouhani.

Rescuing Palestinian terrorists is not the exception, it’s the rule.” (1)


More On Israel – Scripture say’s Jesus preached with “authority” (Mark 1:21), then gave orders for his men to go out and do the same. (2)

Problem is, we dont’ hear much preaching like that today (generally speaking, of course).

Preaching on topics like we’re sinners headed to hell, standing up for Christ and His Word when your political leaders aren’t, our duty during wartime, patriotism and backing Israel, our most faithfully ally, are too much for some of the flock to handle.

Over the 4th, I was away on vacation and over the last twenty-five years have attended another church. However, the ministers there have fed us a steady diet of pablum over the years causing me to skip the last three summers. I didn’t miss it, and feel such organized religiosity is wearing me out and leading me away from attending some churches altogether.

In the case of our relationship with Israel if we take the wrong side, and it looks like Obama crossed the line there, there are big-time consequences to be had (Genesis 12:1-3).

Too many guys “on the wall” have left their post because it’s too hot politically, have ignored things altogether hoping they’ll go away, gone to sleep or just don’t know their history (Biblical and American). You’d think we’d hear some sermons on Genesis 12:1-3, but I’m not holding out hope we will.

Instead, one faction of the Presbyterian church recently voted not to do business with companies doing business with the Israeli’s. Benjamin Netanyahu had an answer for them, inviting them to visit his nation and then tour the surrounding Islamic countries to note the differences. When visiting Islamic nations, Netanyahu challenged the Presbyterians to make it a point of telling their hosts they were Christians and then see how far that would get them.

A number of Americans believe President Obama detests our American heritage and way of life, and consistent with his Marxist-Muslim ideology is working diligently to change us. If Obama really cherished America (and Israel) he wouldn’t be doing the things he’s doing.

If you want to see a real leader look at Bibi Netanyah. I believe he is the world’simages-2 best at the moment. He knows from experience there’s only one way to deal with Islamic fascists and told the world in no uncertain terms that he will defend his nation.

Americans arent’ used to such leadership where men stand up for their principles and country, no matter what the cost. Instead, they hold a finger in the air to guage which way the political winds are blowing.

Bibi also pointed out that his country (with the help of the US) has defended Israeli citizens from Hamas missiles, while Hamas uses citizens to protect their missile sites. (3)

One Comment to “On Israel”

  1. Kinda Says:

    I agree with all you say. Bibi is, indeed, a man that I admire and respect. He is one of the greatest leaders that have ever lived. America had better wake up before it’s too late. (It may already be too late).
