Obama is dangerous for Israel

But Obama is even more dangerous for America. How? He is no friend to Israel, and in his speech today, Obama told Israel to give up more land. This will bring judgment upon the US. Today in his speech on Middle East issues, Obama said,

“The borders of Israel and a Palestinian state should be based on pre-1967 borders with agreed swaps…”But what America and the international community can do is state frankly what everyone knows: a lasting peace will involve two states for two peoples.” He means divide part of Israel up and give it to the Palestinians for their own state.

This proposal was not taken well by Israel’s Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu. “Netanyahu blasts Obama proposal, calls 1967 borders ‘indefensible’
Forcefully stepping into an explosive Middle East debate, President Barack Obama on Thursday endorsed a key Palestinian demand for the borders of its future state and prodded Israel to accept that it can never have a truly peaceful nation based on “permanent occupation.” Obama’s urging that a Palestinian state be based on 1967 borders — before the Six Day War in which Israel occupied East Jerusalem, the West Bank and Gaza — was a significant shift in the U.S. approach. It drew an immediate negative response from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who is to meet with Obama at the White House Friday. In a statement released late Thursday in Jerusalem, Netanyahu called the 1967 lines “indefensible,” saying such a withdrawal would jeopardize Israel’s security and leave major West Bank settlements outside Israeli borders, though Obama left room for adjustments reached through negotiations.”

This is not good news for Israel, and it is my opinion that the worst suspicions of the 2008 discerning electorate have now proven true: Obama as head of the United States is abandoning Israel as an ally and is actually an active enemy of that nation.

Joel C. Rosenberg ( is the founder of The Joshua Fund and the author of eight New York Times best-selling novels and non-fiction books, with more than two million copies in print. He has also produced two documentary films, based on his two non-fiction books. previously worked as an aide to several U.S. and Israeli leaders, including Steve Forbes, former Israeli Deputy Prime Minister Natan Sharansky, and then-former Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. He is the son of a Jewish father and a Gentile mother, Joel is an evangelical Christian with a passion to make disciples of all nations and teach Bible prophecy.

He is hosting a conference in Israel this week on the Book of Joel. On his blog, Rosenberg said today of Obama’s proposal to return to 1967 borders and his proposal to carve up more land:

Do not divide the Land of Israel — In my message about the final chapter of the Book of Joel, I explained the warning to the nations that the Lord gives. I focused in particular on Joel 3:2 (which is 4:2 in the Hebrew Bible) in which the Lord says, “I will gather all the nations and bring them down to the valley of Jehoshaphat. Then I will enter into judgment with them there on behalf of My people and My inheritance, Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations; and they have divided up My land.” The Bible is very clear: the Lord is going to judge all the nations for dividing up the Land of Israel. Let the United Nations and the United States and the European Union and the Palestinian Authority and the Israeli government itself be warned. What appears like wisdom to the world — carving up the State of Israel like a Thanksgiving turkey — is direct disobedience to the Word of God and will trigger the most severe divine judgment. This is a hard truth for many to hear and to hold, particularly for Palestinian Arabs and others in the epicenter. But we do Israel’s Arab friends and enemies no favors by denying, obfuscating or trying to explain away the clear teaching of the Lord found in the Scriptures. We must teach the truth. We must do so gently and lovingly, but we must also be clear and firm.”

It is an inescapable fact that Israel will be divided and Jerusalem given over to the Gentiles. Joel 3:2 and Revelation 11:2 show us that. It is also an inescapable fact that the Holy Land is God’s land, and He will judge all nations that divide it or that pressure Israel to divide it.

Zechariah 12:3 says that at the time of the very end, Israel has no friend, all nations are gathered against her. America must now be moved over to the enemies side, and woe unto us that abandon God’s nation.
