Israel's Political Dilemma

ISRAEL'S POLITICAL DILEMMA
At this very moment and by its own hand, Israel may be sowing the seeds of its own destruction.
Several weeks ago, on national television, Evangelist, Pat Robertson,  shocked some of his listeners when he spoke about Israel, and said words to the effect,  that he believed that G-d would be very angry if the tiny Israeli nation went along with public pressure and gave up a substantial area of Israel for the creation of an independent Palestinian State. Several thousand years ago, the Book of Exodus specifically spells out G-d's devine plan for what would become the kingdom of Israel. At that time, ancient Israel was much larger than it is today and included all of its present land area plus the land that has become Jordan.

                                                                                                                                                                        Some of us strongly believe, both Christian and Jew, that it was through Devine Intervention that the Jewish people finally regained their homeland in 1948, after being scattered all over the world for more than two thousand years. Therefore, is it any wonder that  G-d clearly would be angry with the Jewish people? During the kingdom of Solomon, there is a famous parable that has been passed down through the ages: Two women claiming the same infant were presented before the court of Solomon.  Both women were most convincing and Solomon could not accept or reject either woman's plea. Solomon who was considered most wise, realized that the real or legitimate mother would avoid harming her own child at any cost, even if it meant sacrificing her own life for the child's. Solomon's response was that the infant be cut into two parts and each woman would receive a part. One of the women pleaded with Solomon to spare the child as she now was ready to let the other woman have the infant. Of course, we all know how this famous parable ends.

Solomon would no more have cut the infant into two parts then he would have cut-off an arm from one side and a leg from the other. Perhaps it was G-d's way then of testing Solomon as it is now G-d's way of testing the present government of Israel.

Woe Be To Us

Here we are with nuclear weapons and militarized biotechnology. And we still haven't gotten beyond theocracy. Woe be to us.

Re: Israel's Political Dilemma

So do you support Robertson's remarks or did you forget add your own commentary. I don't understand your point?
