Over the past year and a half under President Obama, I can note many decisions his regime has made which are disturbing at best. Nothing; however, goes more against the grain of everything our nation has stood for than the antagonistic stance we have taken towards Israel.
President Obama has gone to great lengths to weaken our relationship with Israel, at times behaving in a completely disrespectful manner toward Prime Minister Netanyahu. The current administration has taken a very stern, almost confrontational attitude with Israel. This is extremely irresponsible and ill-advised. Why, you ask? Well, let me tell you why.

If you are an atheist or have a problem with people talking about Christianity and/or God, please feel free to not read the rest of this article. I wouldn’t want to waste time you could be spending consorting with the ACLU to have the Ten Commandments removed from a courtroom somewhere in our nation.***
Israel, first and foremost, has always been our ally. They are the only ally we have in the middle east. We have always supported them and they, in turn, have always supported us. Israel is sacred. Israel is a blessed land given to the Jews by God. The Jews are God’s chosen people.
Deuteronomy 7:6-8 says “6 For you are a people holy to the Lord your God. The Lord your God has chosen you out of all the peoples on the face of the earth to be his people, his treasured possession. 7 The Lord did not set his affection on you and choose you because you were more numerous than other peoples, for you were the fewest of all peoples. 8 But it was because the Lord loved you and kept the oath he swore to your forefathers that he brought you out with a mighty hand and redeemed you from the land of slavery, from the power of Pharaoh king of Egypt.
President Obama has done many things that I believe are bad for our nation, both economically and morally, but I firmly believe that a continued lack of support for the nation of Israel by the United States will be the single decision that dooms our nation.
I wholeheartedly believe that the birth of our great nation was God-inspired. The founding fathers, contrary to how liberals have twisted their meanings over the years, founded our nation upon God. The “separation of church and state” was to prevent the government from sponsoring or forcing any one national religion on the people, i.e. The Church of England, which had most certainly left a bad taste in their mouths from the extreme corruption and politicism involved with a state sponsored religion. Their intent was most certainly not to disallow nativity scenes or the ten commandments from government property, quite the opposite. Don’t believe me? Let’s look at some quotes:
“ The general principles upon which the Fathers achieved independence were the general principals of Christianity… I will avow that I believed and now believe that those general principles of Christianity are as eternal and immutable as the existence and attributes of God.” **John Adams**
"We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry, would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other." **John Adams**
“ He who made all men hath made the truths necessary to human happiness obvious to all… Our forefathers opened the Bible to all.” **Samuel Adams**
“ God governs in the affairs of man. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without his notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without His aid? We have been assured in the Sacred Writings that except the Lord build the house, they labor in vain that build it. I firmly believe this. I also believe that, without His concurring aid, we shall succeed in this political building no better than the builders of Babel” **Benjamin Franklin**
“God who gave us life gave us liberty. And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are a gift from God? That they are not to be violated but with His wrath? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, and that His justice cannot sleep forever.” **Thomas Jefferson***
This last quote is almost prophetic. Can our liberties be considered secure when we have removed God, the one who gives us the liberties in the first place? As much as the liberal history re-writers have tried to remove this fact from existence, our nation was founded upon God and Christian principles.
The bible clearly identifies the Jews as God’s chosen people. I confidently believe we have been blessed as a nation. I further believe that God has blessed our nation over the past 60+ years for our support of the nation of Israel. The day we turn our backs on Israel we can expect to find ourselves on the wrong end of God’s “justice” that “cannot sleep forever.”
Even if you are not a Christian, putting Obama’s foreign policy decisions in perspective has to make you raise an eyebrow. He is continually distancing himself from Israel, and at the same time he is constantly cozying himself up to muslim nations. You know, the ones which chant ‘death to America’ in their streets and who’s own Koran tells them to convert or kill all non-believers. Oh, and I almost forgot…it has been almost nine years but they did murder about 3,000 innocent civilians in our land, but I’m sure they’ll make great new allies.
