The Washington Free Beacon: “The map of the Middle East displayed in an Obama administration video released days before President Barack Obama’s visit to Israel shows the Jewish state dispossessed of substantial parts of its current territory, including its capital.
The map of Israel, displayed repeatedly during the video, shows the Golan Heights, Jerusalem, northern Israel, and areas surrounding what is currently the West Bank as non-Israeli territory. The Golan Heights is shown as part of Syria; Jerusalem is shown as part of the West Bank; and northern Israel is shown as part of Lebanon.”
The itinerary on the White House website also implies that Jerusalem is neither Israel’s capital nor even part of Israel.”
Opinion: And there you go … President Obama speaks of an unbreakable bond with Israel, while erasing Israel’s eternal capital from the map.
The United States of America, until now, has been a fierce protector of Israel. Since Israel’s independence on May 14, 1948, American technology, weapons and aid not only leveled the playing field in the ME, it protected and preserved the Jewish state.
In accordance with the Abrahamic covenant (Genesis 12:3), the US was blessed beyond measure, becoming the greatest, most powerful and prosperous nation in history. “I will bless those who bless you.”
Unfortunately, as the US began to placate the Arab world with land for peace offers, beginning with the first Bush presidency (Madrid peace conference of 1991), God began withdrawing His blessings. The US today is but a shadow of its former self, becoming the largest debtor nation on earth. “And I will curse those who curse you.”
And this may be only the beginning. Almighty God is very clear that there will be harsh judgment for dividing His land (Joel 3:1-2, Zechariah 12:3) and no guilty nation will escape His wrath.
For all the replacement theology Christians out there, the Lord spoke to the prophet Jeremiah 31:35-36 confirming his promises.
“This is what the Lord says, He who appoints the sun to shine by day, who decrees the moon and stars to shine by night,
who stirs up the sea so that its waves roar—the Lord Almighty is His name: Only if these decrees vanish from My sight,”
declares the Lord, “will Israel ever cease being a nation before Me.”
