While writing my new novel Rebirth, about the rebirth of Israel in 1948, I have learned that my country of which I love, has been historically divided over supporting Israel. I understand that since we have liberals and conservatives in our government, but those who oppose Israel are missing why we should support them.
Besides the obvious reasons stated in Genesis 12:3 'I will bless those who bless you (Israel) and curse those who treat you with contempt'... Israel is our best strategic partner in helping us combat terrorism!
We have never had a president that has been so flippant about Israel since Jimmy Carter, like our current president Obama. He can't make up his mind if he can stick to American policy or not.
This article by Israel Alert shows why:
In an hour-long meeting Tuesday with about 50 representatives from the Jewish community's chief foreign policy umbrella group, the , President Obama reportedly urged Jewish leaders to "search your souls" over Israel's seriousness about making peace. While top leaders welcomed the meeting and noted the president's affirmation of his "deep commitment to Israel's security," several participants told JTA that the president also implied that Israel bears primary responsibility for advancing the peace process. Obama also reportedly said that the Arab sections of Jerusalem would not remain in Israeli hands as part of any peace deal.
