Iran: "Trump Is Feeble-Minded"

Print Friendly Version of this pagePrint Get a PDF version of this webpagePDF

Tehran is calling for Palestinians and the world community to resist and boycott the United States ---calling President Trump "feeble-minded"---predicting a failed presidency.

It's interesting to witness the alignment of the American leaders of our political and religious Left and the press with the leadership of Iran.

Let's count the ways our feeble-minded president is writing history.

Yesterday, Iran said, "America has entered a crisis of strategic decision-making that looks at the international arena immaturely and adventurously," denouncing President Trump as "feeble-minded," they continued, "I believe the current US president is not capable of identifying and judging the long-term consequences of his actions."

This echoes Mitt Romney's criticism of Trump during the 2016 presidential primary election.

In 2016 Mitt said of Trump, "His domestic policies will lead to recession, and his foreign policies will make America and the world less safe. And his personal qualities will make America cease to be a shining city on a hill."

And it parallels the daily grind of the press in their attempts to disrupt and destroy this presidency. This is the same press that was warning that Trump was pushing the US toward nuclear war with North Korea.

Tehran agrees. So does Hillary, but she prefers the descriptive term "deplorables" over merely "feeble-minded."

Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, of course, sees it quite differently.

Israel doesn't think Trump is "feeble-minded".

Netanyahu said yesterday, as America officially opened our Embassy in Jerusalem, "Thank you, President Trump, for making the bond between us stronger than ever."

"In Jerusalem," Netanyahu said, "King David established Jerusalem as a capital 3000 years ago. King Solomon later built the Temple, and over 2000 years later, we got to hear the sentence, 'The Temple Mount is in our hands'. We are here in Jerusalem and we are here to stay."

Israeli President Rivlin quoted Psalm 122--"Our feet were standing, within your gates within the gates of Jerusalem."

He said, "For three thousand years, the Jewish people kept their faith in Jerusalem...The State of Israel's commitment to Jerusalem is not only a commitment to the history of the Jewish people, but it is a commitment to all residents of Jerusalem."

Prime Minister Netanyahu said at the opening ceremony, "You can only build peace upon truth," thanking President Trump, he continued... "Remember this moment, this is history. President Trump, by recognizing history, you have made history."

That begs the question, where is the feeble-mindedness in recognizing history?

Of course... but Israel and Netanyahu have a lot to gain from this, the skeptic would say.

"Feeble-minded" Christian leaders are weighing in on the matter.

A number of faith leaders agree that the move is long overdue and are praising Trump for being the first in a long line of US presidents in several decades to stand by Israel in such a major way.

Pastor Jim Garlow, senior pastor at Skyline Church in Southern California, said, "It is quite possible that President Trump's statement on Israel today is the single most important announcement regarding Israel by a US President since President Harry Truman recognized Israel as a state 70 years ago on May 14, 1948."

Former Governor Mike Huckabee said, "For over two decades American presidents have talked the good talk on Israel, but when it came to taking action, they've hesitated and kicked the can down the road...Today President Trump did what predecessors didn't have the courage to do."

And in doing so, Huckabee says, he set two examples for us---"how to make good on promises and how to treat your friends."

Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, said: "The historical record, empirical fact and our faith all confirm that Jerusalem is, in fact, the capital of the Jewish people."

Rev. Jentezen Franklin, pastor of Free Chapel in Gainesville Georgia said, "Christianity began in Jerusalem, which served as the context for Jesus' ministry. The significance of Jerusalem to Christians, however, cannot be separated from the significance of the Jewish people. Their history is our history. Their national history has become our spiritual history."

Bishop Harry Jackson, pastor of Hope Christian Church in Beltsville Maryland, said: "President Trump's support of Israel is encouraging. It marks the beginning of a new season in US Middle East Policy. The previous administration allowed persecution, terrorism and stereotyping of the Israeli people."

Dr. David Jeremiah, pastor of Shadow Mountain Community Church, warned that while the decision by the Trump administration was likely to face opposition, believers should not lose heart."

He said, "There will be many who oppose this decision, just as so many have opposed Israel and her people throughout the centuries. We should not be surprised by this, but rather more convinced than ever that, despite great opposition, God's hand will forever be on the people of the promise."

Dr. Richard Land, president of Southern Evangelical Seminary (Matthews, NC), points out that Prime Minister Netanyahu's connection to the nation of Israel is "a very personal one":

"In speaking to Israelis, Prime Minister Netanyahu explained how his grandfather was beaten unconscious by an anti-Semitic mob in a train station in the heart of Europe at the end of the 19th century, pledging that if he survived the night, he would bring his family to the land of Israel and help build a new future for the Jewish people."
"Mr. Netanyahu went on to say, 'I am standing here today as the Prime Minister of Israel because my grandfather kept his promise.' God keeps His promises too, and He promised the land of Israel to the Jews forever. Their return is part of biblical prophecy. God gave that land to them by covenant."

God keeps His Promises.

Be Informed. Be Encouraged. Be Bold. Be Prayerful. Be Blessed.

  1. A "feeble minded" person makes promises to do what is right, then fails to keep those promises by embracing "denial" as to the damage that will be incurred in the future when it becomes necessary to do the right thing. (This would define all past Presidents who "talked the talk" but did not "walk the walk" regarding our friend Israel and Jerusalem.
    By definition, Trump is the opposite. He has valiantly demonstrated that he will keep ever single promise he made to the American People, even if all those who are sworn to support him and to support the Constitution are against him and often actively involved in efforts to undermine and destroy his presidency. This is a man of courage, resolve, and integrity, which cannot be said of past presidents since Regan, with the exception of Obama. Obama demonstrated resolve, courage, and integrity to "his" purpose, which was to cripple the United States in every way possible. The only failing of Obama is that he is patently dishonest and in fact uses dishonesty as a tool to gain the power to do the opposite of his promises to the American people.

    The history of ISLAM is clear and consistent. They are dedicated to the implementation of Sharia Law in the entire world, in obedience to Allah via the Koran, and are to do so using force and intimidation. They nearly succeeded once as they hacked their way through the Middle East and into Spain, headed for Rome. Were it not for the Crusaders they would have succeeded and Europe would then have submitted to the force of Sharia. The USA would then most likely never have existed as a free sovereign nation. They tried again during President Jefferson’s Presidency and sending his battle ships to pound them into submission was the only cure, after trying "tributes" which the US, Britain, and France paid in vain.

    Now they are trying once again, and our past President did everything possible to enable their success, including but not limited to destroying national leaderships in the East with the strategy to replace them with the Islamic brotherhood. The massive infiltration of Europe by committed Islamic devotees will likely mean the end of Europe as we know it.

    Islam depends entirely on intimidation and fear to maintain their poser over both infidels and their own. To read the Koran and view history with an eye for truth makes this clear. They respond to charity, compromise, and accommodation by stepping up the violent and non-violent Jihad viewing the opportunity as a gift from Allah. Only force has ever stopped them, and this requires courage and a commitment to preserving freedom, democracy, liberty, and the Judeo Christian culture which they have slated for extinction by force and assimilation. To believe otherwise is to embrace denial and discount history completely.

    Iran says "I believe the current US president is not capable of identifying and judging the long-term consequences of his actions." Their slander and threats of "consequences" have always worked with our past presidents, but not with President Trump. His courage and love of country is a Godsend to America.

    Truth is a lonely warrior...
