Israel is one of America’s greatest friends and allies in the world. Not only is Israel the only stable democracy in the sea of oppression and repression that is the Middle East, Israel shares the same values as the United States. The nation of Israel has stood by the United States through thick and thin, and has even taken it on the chin for us more than once.
If you are a Christian, you probably also recognize that Israel is the nation of God’s chosen people, the Jewish people. God gave the Jewish people the land upon which this nation rests more than 3,000 years ago. After being dispersed for nearly 2,000 years, the United States in 1948 helped the nation of Israel to be reborn once again in her native homeland. As Christians, many of us in the United States take seriously what our God said in Genesis 12:3:
I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.
I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to be on the wrong side of the Creator of the Universe.
So it is there are many reasons the United States should continue to stand with Israel…not stab our friend in the back as President Barack Obama did recently by publicly stabbing our ally in the back by insisting Israel return to the indefensible 1967 borders she had before the entire Arab world tried to wipe her off the map…and she kicked their collective hineys.
Now more than ever, we and the rest of the free world needs a real leader like Herman Cain. Unlike President Obama, you will see GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain stand unwaveringly with our ally Israel. He says if he was president, the Cain doctrine would be
You mess with Israel, you are messing with the United States of America.
No kidding! Let it be known clear and up front, without any doubt, that attacking Israel is like attacking us on our own homeland.
It would be nice if there could be a peacefully-coexisting Jewish state of Israel alongside a Palestinian state (even though there never has been a Palestinian nation, and the lands in question belonged either to the British or to other Middle Easter Nations before 1948). In fact, that was the UN plan in 1948. Both a Jewish state and a Palestinian state had been planned by the UN (now it was a royally screwed up plan, in typical UN fashion, but if the Jews could accept it, there was certainly no reason the Palestinians couldn’t). Unfortunately, Palestinian terrorists and hostile Arab decided they would rather wipe Israel off the map than live alongside them and immediately made war on the new state of Israel.
Still the nation of Israel is wiling–even after decades of repeated military assaults and terrorist attacks–to be generous and agree to a Palestinian state, but there are certain things (including indefensible borders) they cannot live with.
I stand with Israel, and Herman Cain stands with Israel. I was already impressed with Herman Cain, and this only adds to my conviction that he would make a fantastic replacement for Barack Obama in 2012.
