BIN: Donald Trump’s elimination of Gen. Qasem Soleimani, the most powerful military leader in Iran, generated a surprising level of opposition among the Democrats who feared an escalation of the confrontation with Iran. But it could be that another reason lies behind the Democrats’ support of Iran.
The partisan support for Iran, the largest state sponsor of terrorism in the world, is so incongruous that former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley commented on it in a recent Fox News interview.

Opinion: The left hates Donald Trump with such passion that they accuse the most pro-Israel president in US history of being an anti-Semite.
Trump’s pro-Israel stance began during his 2016 campaign when he reassured the world that if he became president, he would move the US embassy to Jerusalem, a move every president said they would do, but none had the courage. From there Trump declared the vital Golan Heights to be in Israeli control, declared Israel’s settlements legal, and signed an executive order against anti-Semitism on college campuses.
Who are the Democrats fighting?
Israel (with specific borders) is God’s land and He said so over and over:
“On the same day the Lord made a covenant with Abram, saying: “To your descendants I have given this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the River Euphrates” Genesis 15:18.
The land is an everlasting gift to Abraham and his descendants:
“Also I give to you and your descendants after you the land in which you are a stranger, all the land of Canaan, as an everlasting possession; and I will be their God.” Genesis 17:8
Judgment will come on nations who divide the land:
“For behold, in those days and at that time,When I bring back the captives of Judah and Jerusalem, 2 I will also gather all nations, And bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat; And I will enter into judgment with them there On account of My people, My heritage Israel, Whom they have scattered among the nations; They have also divided up My land.” Joel 3:1-2
So who is it the Democrats are fighting again?
“Behold, He who keeps Israel Shall neither slumber nor sleep” Psalm 21:4.
