Letter to the editor: Jimmy Carter vs. Nation of Israel

Former President Jimmy Carter is encouraging President Obama to “grant American diplomatic recognition to the state of Palestine” before Obama leaves office on January 20, 2016.

Israel adamantly opposes such a move – and so should every person who believes God’s Word is true.  The land of Israel and the city of Jerusalem must not be divided – God gave that land to Israel, and no man has the right to divide it or to take it away from Israel.  In fact, God gives this warning about Israel:  “I will bless those who bless you, and curse those who curse you.”

I don’t know what is going on in the mind of Jimmy Carter.  Some of his critics have often said “he is obsessed with Israel.”  And many of you remember that it was President Jimmy Carter who opened the door for Ayatollah Khomeini to establish Islamic control over Iran in 1979.  And you see what that has led to!

We all must pray for God’s protection and blessing over Israel – and – that President Obama will not do anything to jeopardize the friendly, supportive partnership the United States has had with Israel since their re-establishment as a world-recognized nation in 1948.  Donald Trump has promised to support Israel all the way!

We want God to bless the United States, not curse us!
