Today our President, no friend to Israel, put the USA on the side of the Palesinians in proposing two countries, with boundaries at the 1967 borders. But what does that mean? And since I’m not Israeli, why should I care?
There are probably more important reasons to fight this, but I’m concerned about one more than the others. Our Holy Lands will be in the hands of Muslims led by Hamas.
I’ve always thought about walking where Jesus walked. I’ve fantasized about a trip to Israel to see the holiest sites in Christianity. But if Obama gets his way, the Western “Wailing” Wall, Church of the Sepulchure, Mount of Olives, Garden of Gethsemene, the Garden Tomb, where Jesus was buried, and more will be off-limits. Muslims used to control these sites and Christians were not allowed. Neither were Jews.
I admit that I’m not a fan of our President’s policies most of the time. This time I’m willing to fight. I’m contacting my congresspeople to instruct them to tell President Obama that the 1967 Borders are untenable for Israel. They’re untenable for me too.
