Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has announced an initiative to pass a “Basic Law” defining Israel as the nation-state of the Jews.
The nation of Israel is the epicenter of the Bible both historically and in events yet to unfold. In three days, I will be traveling to the Holy Land, where the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob is revered by their government and society. I will be joined by a contingency of pro-Israel Americans from the Liberty Ambassador Counsel (LAC) program.
In the midst of Palestinian protests commemorating Nakba, the day in 1948 that Israelis regained the Holy Land as their God-ordained homeland, Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu declared that he wants to pass a Basic Law defining Israel as the nation-state of the Jews, as reported by Israel National News.
“Not far from here,” the Prime Minister said, “the Palestinian Authority is marking what they call Nakba Day. They stand in silence to mark the catastrophe of the establishment of Israel, the state of the Jewish nation. They educate their children in endless propaganda, that they must cause the disappearance of the state of Israel.
“We have many answers to this. The first is that we continue to build our state and our united capital of Jerusalem, and we will also give an additional answer to the Nakba – we will pass the ‘Jewish Nation-State Bill’ that makes clear to the entire world that Israel is the state of the Jewish people.”
Palestinians vehemently denounced the initiative declaring that the land belongs to them, as was trumpeted by one irate demonstrator…
“We do not forget our land and it does not matter how long it will take, we will return to our lands.”
It seems that the Palestinians haven’t read the right history Book. The Holy Land of Israel is the land promised to the Jews by God!
Among the greatest dangers to the people of Israel (the Jews) is the intensifying rhetoric of radical Islamists whose goal is to eradicate Israel.
It wasn’t long ago that the Iranians marched in the streets chanting “Death to America! Death to Israel! Iran and the Muslim Brotherhood are among the backers of any Palestinian and Hamas effort to overthrow the nation-state of the Jews.
Get a book that will open your eyes to the rising tide of radical Islam and the infiltration of Sharia (the legal system supporting the religion of Islam).
The advancement of radical Islam and the infusion of Sharia into a nation’s judicial system are among the greatest threats to every freedom-loving country’s culture, system of justice, and religious freedom.
Among these Islamic radicals’ highest priorities are the takeover of the United States of America and the nation of Israel, known to them as “the Big Satan” and “the Little Satan,” respectively.
Our new Patriot’s Handbook on Sharia’s Threat to American Culture exposes the growing threat to America, including segments on Sharia’s advancement worldwide – especially the threat to Israel.
I’ve also written an exclusive special essay that is an overview of this growing threat. This valuable resource is yours for a gift of any amount with this offer!
You likely have a key role in our mission to Israel
If you have signed any of our Stand With Israel petitions in the past year, I want you to know that your name is included in a special book I am carrying to Israel, the America/Israel Friendship Book, which I will be presenting to Israeli leadership.
As I was privileged to discuss with Prime Minister Netanyahu several months ago, the United States and Israel are the modern day pillars of Western Civilization and our nations’ fates are inextricably linked.
We MUST continue to stand with Israel!
There has never been a more important time for people to stand up for Israel!
America shares a common bond through our history, heritage, and faith. Christians and Jews must stand in solidarity to one another, and together they must stand in solidarity with Israel and its right to exist as a sovereign nation. Along with our shared common values, Israel and America also share common threats. We are comforted and assured by the Scriptures that the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob is not intimidated by adversity.
Please pray for our safety as we travel – and for the peace of Jerusalem. God bless you for your scriptural and principled stand!
