Oppress Israel and veil it as "concern"

Blair: Obama anxious about Israel's fate
"Blair told an audience of business leaders gathered in central London on Thursday that Obama is 'frankly worried about the position that Israel is in.'"

No need to worry about Israel, Mr. President. A power infinitely higher than you is fully in charge of Israel's future.

Now that you have called for a further partitioning of Israel, I'd be much more concerned with your own position before the Almighty. God does not deal kindly with people who pressure His people into seemingly impossible corners (i.e. suggesting a return to pre-1967 borders). A Christian should know that. A simple reading of the Old Testament tells you that.

Dividing Israel's land post-1967 is utterly futile

Netanyahu in Congress: Jerusalem Must Remain Undivided
"Israel is the only country that has guaranteed freedom of all faiths in Jerusalem, which must remain undivided, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu told Congress Tuesday. In unusually strong language, he told members of Congress that Judea and Samaria are part of the ancient Jewish homeland that our forefathers walked in and that the 650,000 Jews living there 'are not ‘occupying’ the region.”"

I sense a showdown of biblical proportions coming up between Obama, the EU, and the UN on one side; and Israel and the Creator of All Things on the other. How foolish and ignorant it is to fight against the God of Israel. How many times has man already tried this? The end has already been determined.

15The day is near when I, the Lord,
      will judge all godless nations!
   As you have done to Israel,
      so it will be done to you.
   All your evil deeds
      will fall back on your own heads.
 16 Just as you swallowed up my people
      on my holy mountain,
   so you and the surrounding nations
      will swallow the punishment I pour out on you.
   Yes, all you nations will drink and stagger
      and disappear from history.
 17 “But Jerusalem will become a refuge for those who escape;
      it will be a holy place.
   And the people of Israel will come back
      to reclaim their inheritance.
 18 The people of Israel will be a raging fire,
      and Edom a field of dry stubble.
   The descendants of Joseph will be a flame
      roaring across the field, devouring everything.
   There will be no survivors in Edom.
      I, the Lord, have spoken!

Zechariah 9:
8 I will guard my Temple
and protect it from invading armies.
I am watching closely to ensure
that no more foreign oppressors overrun my people’s land.
Zion’s Coming King
9 Rejoice, O people of Zion!
Shout in triumph, O people of Jerusalem!
Look, your king is coming to you.
He is righteous and victorious,
yet he is humble, riding on a donkey—
riding on a donkey’s colt.
10 I will remove the battle chariots from Israel
and the warhorses from Jerusalem.
I will destroy all the weapons used in battle,
and your king will bring peace to the nations.
His realm will stretch from sea to sea
and from the Euphrates River to the ends of the earth.
11 Because of the covenant I made with you,
sealed with blood,
I will free your prisoners
from death in a waterless dungeon.
12 Come back to the place of safety,
all you prisoners who still have hope!
I promise this very day
that I will repay two blessings for each of your troubles.
13 Judah is my bow,
and Israel is my arrow.
Jerusalem is my sword,
and like a warrior, I will brandish it against the Greeks.
14 The Lord will appear above his people;
his arrows will fly like lightning!
The Sovereign Lord will sound the ram’s horn
and attack like a whirlwind from the southern desert.
15 The Lord of Heaven’s Armies will protect his people,
and they will defeat their enemies by hurling great stones.
They will shout in battle as though drunk with wine.
They will be filled with blood like a bowl,
drenched with blood like the corners of the altar.
16 On that day the Lord their God will rescue his people,
just as a shepherd rescues his sheep.
They will sparkle in his land
like jewels in a crown.
17 How wonderful and beautiful they will be!
The young men will thrive on abundant grain,
and the young women will flourish on new wine.

Speaking to reporters accompanying Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on his long flight to the United States tonight, Netanyahu spoke of the injustice and hardship Mexicans have endured since American forces annexed Texas in 1845. “Tens of thousands of ordinary Mexicans were driven out of their homes – the only homes they had known for centuries – and forced to live in poverty and squalor south of the border imposed by American aggression,” Netanyahu said. “The Israeli and Mexican people agree on this: This festering wound will never heal until America takes bold steps to return to the internationally accepted lines of 1845. Clearly the settlement activity that’s taken place in occupied Mexico since then is illegal. When I meet the President tomorrow I will tell him to halt all building activity in Texas immediately. Two lands for two peoples, yes, but not on land taken by force from Mexico,” the Prime Minister said.

1 Chronicles 16:

31 Let the heavens be glad, and the earth rejoice!
      Tell all the nations, “The Lord reigns!”
 32 Let the sea and everything in it shout his praise!
      Let the fields and their crops burst out with joy!
 33 Let the trees of the forest rustle with praise,
      for the Lord is coming to judge the earth.
 34 Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good!
      His faithful love endures forever.
 35 Cry out, “Save us, O God of our salvation!
      Gather and rescue us from among the nations,
   so we can thank your holy name
      and rejoice and praise you.”
 36 Praise the Lord, the God of Israel,
      who lives from everlasting to everlasting!
   And all the people shouted “Amen!” and praised the Lord.

Obama is an Agent for the LBL Beast of Islam
President breaks US promise and cedes the West Bank to the mythical Palestinians

Military-Strategic Aspects of West Bank Topography for Israel's Defense
...Incapacitating and overrunning the coastal plain would terminate Israel's very existence. This is the primary factor affecting the strategic importance of the West Bank for Israel from a military perspective. Another aspect of the strategic importance of the West Bank emanates from its role as a barrier protecting the vulnerable coastal plain from armed attack from the east. The West Bank mountain ridge may reach only 3,000 feet at its highest point, but to its east is the Jordan Rift Valley which is the lowest point on earth, dipping down to 1,200 feet below sea-level. This means that the West Bank mountain ridge forms a 4,200-foot barrier facing eastward that is relatively steep for an attacking ground force

Palestinians set on U.N. statehood bid in September - Yahoo! News
"Diplomats see majority support for the Palestinians in the U.N. General Assembly. But the statehood vote would have first to be approved in the Security Council, where the United States -- which insists on a negotiated Middle East peace -- has a veto.

'We urge President Obama to recognize the Palestinian state on the 1967 borders,' Shaath said. 'We are going to the United Nations in September, using all non-violent means.'"

Obama has already (foolishly) stated he supports the pre-67 borders. September will be very interesting. Is September Obama's deadline for Israel to negotiate its borders?

Obama acting out of ignorance - just a pawn of the Almighty

Obama says Palestine must be based in 1967 borders
"WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama is endorsing the Palestinians' demand for their future state to be based on the borders that existed before the 1967 Middle East war"

Palestinians call 'urgent' meeting after Obama speech
"'President Abbas decided to call the Palestinian leadership to an urgent meeting as soon as possible and consult with the Arab brothers to discuss US President Barack Obama's speech,' senior Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat told reporters."

Military-Strategic Aspects of West Bank Topography for Israel's Defense
Due to its location and topography, the West Bank (Judea and Samaria) has played a vital role in Israel's national security since it was captured by the IDF in 1967.

Hosea 4:
2 You make vows and break them;
      you kill and steal and commit adultery.
   There is violence everywhere—
      one murder after another.
 3 That is why your land is in mourning,
      and everyone is wasting away.
   Even the wild animals, the birds of the sky,    

and the fish of the sea are disappearing.

Ecclesiastes 9:
12 People can never predict when hard times might come. Like fish in a net or birds in a trap, people are caught by sudden tragedy.

"This was a surprise for everyone. I have been here my whole life and never saw anything like this," said Khatib Ibrahim, a 51-year-old resident who watched the clashes unfold as he worked in his family's grove.

Officials also said there were strong signs that Syria and its Iranian-backed Lebanese ally, Hezbollah, orchestrated the unrest.  "The Syrian regime is intentionally attempting to divert international attention away from the brutal crackdown of their own citizens to incite against Israel," said Lt. Col. Avital Leibovich, an Israeli military spokeswoman.

Caroline Glick: Obama's newest ambush

"It is hard to believe, but it appears that in the wake of the Palestinian unity deal that brings Hamas, the genocidal, al-Qaida-aligned, local franchise of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood, into a partnership with Fatah, US President Barack Obama has decided to open a new round of pressure on Israel to give away its land and national rights to the Palestinians."

Reversals challenge hope of Arab Spring
When popular rebellions began erupting around the Middle East earlier this year, the outpouring of democratic fervor was quickly dubbed the Arab Spring, a phrase that captured the heady optimism of what appeared to be a new era of freedom and hope.

But as spring turns to summer, events across the region are taking an altogether darker and more sinister turn, one in which the prospect of a brighter future no longer seems so readily assured.

Obama: too soft on Islamic Terrorists; always apologizing for America

"After thinking it over for a day or so, President Obama decided against publicly releasing the pictures of a blood-soaked dead Bin Laden. The President compared releasing these photographs to excessively celebrating a touchdown (“spiking the ball”) and added that such gore would only inflame the “Arab Street” and make the U.S. even more unpopular. He also assured Muslims that bin Laden’s corpse was treated with respect and in accordance with Islamic law.

This is the wrong approach for it projects an image of weakness to a culture that worships strength. Foreign policy is not about gaining a few points in the latest Pew Middle East survey. What Obama (and his weak stomach advisors) fails to realize is that gruesomely punishing one’s enemy offers an all-too-rare teachable moment regarding what happens to bad guys who mess with Uncle Sam."

Romans 13 [NKJV]:
  1 Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God. 2 Therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves. 3 For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. Do you want to be unafraid of the authority? Do what is good, and you will have praise from the same. 4 For he is God’s minister to you for good. But if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil.

Incidentally, The New Living Translation Bible gets the intended tone of Romans 13:4 all wrong:
"4 The authorities are God’s servants, sent for your good. But if you are doing wrong, of course you should be afraid, for they have the power to punish you. They are God’s servants, sent for the very purpose of punishing those who do what is wrong."[NLT]

Where's the "avenger to execute wrath" part?

All who try to move it will injure themselves.

Evidence at bin Laden's home raises nuclear concerns - Washington Times
"Politico first reported this week that CIA Director Leon E. Panetta told members of Congress that bin Laden’s clothing had two phone numbers sewn into it at the time of the raid.

Don't get me wrong, I think Osama's death is definitely something to celebrate. Somewhat akin to David cutting off the head of Goliath. However, Obama is hypocritically milking Osama's death for all its political worth.

"It was organised by controversial preacher Anjem Choudary, who told reporters after the 'service' that America had created a new generation of Islamic terrorists."

UK Muslims are furious at the murder of Osama bin Laden, but President Obama assures us that Islam is not the enemy? They have declared war on the West, but we are not even to suggest the obvious: authentic Islam hates us.
Mahmoud is under pressure and getting flakier, if it were possible. Potentially perfect conditions for Ahmadinejad to begin hastening the return of his al Mahdi, the 12 Imam, creating world chaos and attacking Israel. Is Gog and Magog imminent?

Ahmadinejad allies charged with sorcery

The mainstream media calls it "sorcery". I call it demon possessed.

DEBKAfile, Gaza has six fortified villas just like bin Laden's Abbottabad compound
"Haniyeh condemned the killing of bin Laden as "the continuation of American oppression and shedding of blood of Muslims and Arabs." Although Hamas had its differences with Al Qaeda, his group, he said, condemns the assassination of 'a Muslim and holy Arabic warrior' and prays that bin Laden's 'soul rests in peace.'

The Hamas official was the only Muslim leader in the world to bluntly condemn the US for killing the master-terrorist – a telltale betrayal of Hamas's true nature behind its Western-contrived diplomatic fa├žade."

In case you missed it - Osama bin Laden is confirmed killed by US special forces . A NBC news correspondent stated "...this is a major turning point in the war on terror, which has defined a generation."  I too think this is potentially a major turning point, however I think it will bring the Jihadists out of the woodwork. Now the murderers have a new reason to retaliate.

This is where it could go, which would rapidly hasten the end of this age...

Israel withholds Palestinian cash transfer
"Israel will hold up an $89 million cash transfer to the Palestinian Authority [PA] planned for this week because of a new unity deal between rival Palestinian factions."

NATO is assisting Muslim extremists (probably al Qaeda) and reportedly bombing Qaddafi's family. Meanwhile Assad in Syria is gunning down demonstrators in the streets with impunity. Why is the West concentrating all its efforts on Qadaffi and ignoring Syria and Iran? God's hand is obviously in control of all of this, even the inconsistent actions of the West. It will be interesting some day to look back, and see how it all came to a logical, divinely inspired solution.

Qaddafi Escapes NATO Missile Strike That Kills His Son, Grandchildren
"The commander of the NATO operation, Canadian Lt. Gen. Charles Bouchard, said he was aware of unconfirmed reports that some Qaddafi family members may have been killed and he regretted 'all loss of life, specially the innocent civilians being harmed as a result of the ongoing conflict.'"
