ISRAEL E-CARD Volume 3 Issue 18 September 15, 2009
Topic # 1 The Squeeze On Israel Is Coming!
Stay tuned the next two weeks! There is a confluence of serious factors leading to big trouble for Israel. President Obama will be meeting with Prime Minister Netanyahu and President Abbas in New York around the UN gathering. Iran says they will talk but not about their nukes. The US now admits that Iran could have a bomb by February. Israel will have to attack before then, but after the UN meetings. Many experts believe the US is setting a trap for Israel at the UN to extract extraordinary concessions under world pressure.
Pray especially for PM Benjamin Netanyahu to listen to Yahweh and have the courage to say “NO” to pressure.
“Why do the nations rage, And the people plot a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, And the rulers take counsel together, Against Yahweh and against His Anointed.“ Psalm 2:1-2
Topic # 2 Quid But No Quo!
Cal Thomas got it right! In his September 9 Jewish World Review column, Cal made a great point:
“The Latin phrase “quid pro quo” means “something for something.” Israel has given lots of quid, but has received little quo. The Obama administration is again pressing Israel to stop building homes on its historic territory.”
He concludes his article with the following statement: “Arab and Muslim nations, having started five wars, might go for number six if they believe they can win the next one. Only a fool would believe otherwise, given their repeatedly stated intentions and behavior. In the Middle East and in Washington, there is a surplus of fools.”
“You shall break them with a rod of iron; You shall dash them to pieces like a potter’s vessel.’ Now therefore, be wise, O kings; Be instructed, you judges of the earth. Serve Yahweh with fear, And rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, lest He be angry, And you perish in the way, When His wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all those who put their trust in Him.” Psalm 2:9-12
