U.S. at War With Israel?

The American people are not at war with Israel, but the Obama Administration seems to be---at least with Israel's current conservative leadership.

William Kristol with the Weekly Standard says, "The Obama Administration is angry with Israel."

Kristol quotes the New York Times, which he calls" the administration's house organ," as affirming how angry the president has become, and why.

It's becoming widely known that President Obama is furious about Speaker of the House John Boehner inviting Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to speak to Congress on the threat of terrorism. He is scheduled to speak in March.

What many may not know is to what length our president is expressing his anger.

The president has now deployed his political "A" team to Israel for the purpose of influencing Israel's elections in March.

The president's efforts are not passive.

Attorney Matt Staver, founder of Liberty Counsel, said this week, "I was literally outraged, at the audacity of our president to flagrantly intervene in a foreign nation's election---this time acting against the sovereignty of our most trusted ally in the Middle East."

Bill Kristol says we should not be surprised at the level of anger and vindictiveness of President Obama toward Prime Minister Netanyahu---just last summer "an official in this administration called Prime Minister Netanyahu a 'coward' and a 'chicken 's ___t'."

Kristol says the president has always tried to present himself "as cool, calm, and collected," but not this time.

He notes, "We have not seen this kind of anger toward, for example the Islamic Republic of Iran," rather we have seen "appreciation and understanding of the Islamic Republic's politics and history."

He believes, at the core of the president's anger, is that he wanted to be the US President credited with the founding of a Palestinian State---he wanted to be to Palestine what President Harry Truman is to Israel.

Now realizing that is not going to happen, Kristol says the "president then turned to another dream," to be the American president who goes to Tehran, who "achieves with Iran what President Nixon did with China."

Neither is going to happen.

Kristol says the president believes Israel and its friends in the United States stand in the way of achieving those dreams.

He says, "When a leader feels his policies are working, he ignores his critics. When he knows they are not working, he lashes out."

The "lashing out" has taken a draconian turn.

Matt Staver is expressing grave concern and shock with what we are learning this week in regard to the national election in Israel.

Our president is doing more than just "snubbing" Netanyahu.

Dr. Aaron Lerner with the Independent Media Review Analysis (IMRA) first discovered an article not yet translated into English in Ha'aretz, an Israeli newspaper, that reported on Barack Obama's political team being on the ground in Israel working to defeat Benjamin Netanyahu in the upcoming Israeli election.

Staver rightly says, "If Barack Obama's campaign machine is successful in defeating Mr. Netanyahu and helping elect a more liberal leader, Israel could see a historical shift in the political makeup of the nation, much like America experienced in 2008."

Staver is sending a "Proclamation of Blessing" to Israeli leadership, with copies going to the president's office, John Kerry, Speaker John Boehner and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

While this work is ongoing to unseat Prime Minister Netanyahu, President Obama blessed the newly crowned monarch of Saudi Arabia, King Salman, this week.

The Washington Free Beacon published a well documented, in-depth article this week about the King's current ties to several anti-Semitic Muslim clerics, well known for advocating very radical positions against the West---America and Israel. The King also, according to this report, has strong ties with a number of radical anti-America and anti-Israel organizations.

Last Friday, a White House spokesperson said President Obama will not meet with Prime Minister Netanyahu when he is in Washington DC in March.

The reason the spokesman gave---"To avoid the appearance of influencing a democratic election in a foreign country."

Can we see clearly yet?

All this gives clarity to a comment made last week by an unnamed administration official telling an Israeli newspaper "he [Netanyahu] will pay a price" for coming to America to speak to Congress about terrorism at the invitation of the Speaker of the House.

Last March, the Israeli newspaper Ha'aretz published an article about the decline of support for Israel among young evangelical Christians.

The so-called religious left has always taken a pro-Palestine, anti-Israel position. However, the evangelical position has always been a biblical position---a position that blesses Israel and does not try to "remake Israel" into a secular progressive state.

Without doubt, any decline in authentic support for Israel on the part of evangelicals is related to the pervasive secular progressive views of this administration, some churches such as the Episcopal and other left leaning churches, and public education---and, in many cases a lack of biblical teaching in the home.

Humanity's oldest record---the Bible---speaks clearly to what all relationships with Israel must look like.

Genesis 12:3 brings perfect clarity.

"I will bless those who bless you.
I will curse him who curses you;
And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed."

What part of that can we not understand?

Be Blessed. Do the right thing.


  1. President Obama has been at war against the U.S. for a long time. I hope this is his defeat. God bless Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. May he wake up our Congress as he strengthens all that our President has torn down. May he be a restorer of the breech, and a rebuilder of this nation. He's no coward. He's a warrior for God.

  2. I claim the Genesis 12:3 blessing on Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, in the name of Jesus Christ. It's the blessing to Abraham and his seed.

  3. I believe that blessing to Abraham can go for all who believe in Christ, and if we do, we ought to be doing the work Abraham did, and not be found meddling in things not pertaining to us, or trying to manipulate, or subvert a man in a good cause.

    So I hope the Prime minister comes according to his invitation by our government, and according to his good purpose in educating others about the present threat of terrorism which he knows as much about as anyone in government today. He is a blessing to this nation. Israel is an anchor of peace in a hostile region.

    I believe this was the work of Abraham:

    Gen 18:19
    For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the Lord, to do justice and judgment; that the Lord may bring upon Abraham that which he hath spoken of him.

    If we want the blessing of Abraham, all we have to do is believe in Jesus, and I believe we ought to take heed to ourselves that we do not do contrary to the works of Abraham who believed God and obeyed.

  4. America is in a spiritual war. That is for certain.

  5. A good president should be willing to sit at the feet of this Prime Minister and learn something.

  6. One thing I like about the three branches of our government is that when one, or even two of those start failing, the other one can take up take up the slack. This of course must be done by God exercising something, for without him we have no strength at all.

    Often during troublesome sailing we find our strength to be both weak, and being exercised by the Almighty.

    Let's pray for America.

  7. The Church needs to be in authority in the earth. The scripture we have, even in DARK sayings of the wise, and of things that were received as well as given from MOUNTAIN tops, were written of those who are in heaven, of the city of the living God, who SHINED as lights in this world, as a FLAMING FIRE at times, and as a city on a hill at night. The Bibles we have are of them, as a HEAVENLY BRIDE, being one with the bright and MORNING STAR, and AS HE IS, so are they, and we can read all that they left us with, at our DESIRE.

    Reminding me of something I saw on you tube.....Shocking Blue, Venus.

  8. John 1:10
    He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.

    I'm sure I don't know the depth of that.
