The occupant’s occupant rant
The occupant of the Oval Office suffered a great loss of international political capital when Benjamin Netanyahu won an astounding victory in his re-election bid for Prime Minister of Israel. The “president” has now vested the White House in making the determination that a Palestinian state will be birthed, shrinking Israel back to pre-1967 borders. He sent his message through White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough, who addressed leftist so-called pro-Israel support group, J Street. Politico reports that McDonough proclaimed to a standing ovation, “An occupation that has lasted more than 50 years must end.”
Politico reported that McDonough “described the alternate to a two-state agreement: a one-state solution based on unilateral annexation and abandonment of democratic rights for Palestinians that, he warned, “would only contribute to Israel’s further isolation.” In other words, he said, more divestment, boycotts and efforts to delegitimize Israel in the international community.” It would appear that the Administration was threatening Israel with boycotts and divestment if Israel didn’t bow to allowing an obvious terrorist state to be formed. McDonough said, “The United States will never stop working for a two-state solution and a lasting peace that Israelis and Palestinians so richly deserve.”
This so-called occupation by Israel began after Egypt, Jordan, and Syria amassed troops on the Israeli border in an effort to “drive the Jews into the sea.” Israel seized control of Gaza, the strategic Golan Heights, Judea and Samaria (now called the West Bank). In short, Israel took back some land God had already granted it. Genesis 15:18 says, “In the same day the Lord made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates.” Numbers 34:1-13 and Deuteronomy 11:24 also speak to the borders of Israel. In essence, what God gave Israel would encompass part of Egypt, Jordan, Iraq, and Syria. No “Palestinians” mentioned.
For me, it would be more important that an occupation of the White House that has lasted more than six years must end. It is rife with treason, treachery, blatant lawbreaking, support for America’s enemies against the good interest of the American people. Israel’s claim to its land and its nation is far more legitimate. The United States has no right to define Israel’s borders. Palestine was an area designated by the Roman occupation. Contemporary Arabs invented the “Palestinian” in order to divide the land of Israel. The US government is trying to literally “cut” Israel in half with its proposal of a “Palestinian” sate. All that burden themselves with this issue may find themselves “cut into pieces.”
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
