What Trump did NOT Do in Israel

Here is an excellent summary of what President Trump did not do in Israel – from Joel Rosenberg

  • Did not unveil an American-imposed peace plan and pressure Israel to accept it
  • Did not even use the words “two state solution” during his entire visit
  • Did not criticize Israeli settlements, or mention them publicly at all
  • Did not criticize Israeli policies of any kind
  • Did not surprise the Israelis with major announcements of any kind, much less any policies that weren’t carefully discussed in advance
  • Did not go off message, either in his public remarks or on Twitter

Another big moment came when the President met in Bethlehem with Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas: “Peace can never take root in an environment where violence is tolerated, funded and even rewarded,” Mr. Trump said during his public remarks, at Mr. Abbas’ side. “We must be resolute in condemning such acts in a single unified voice.”

As the Times of Israel noted, this was a “reference to the salaries paid by the [Palestinian Authority] to jailed Palestinian terrorists and to the families of Palestinian prisoners killed while committing terror attacks.” Joel Rosenberg

We must pray for President Trump. Here is a great Psalm of David, praying for deliverance from his enemies. It is amazingly appropriate for our President.

Deliver me, O Yehovah, from evil men;
Preserve me from violent men,
Who plan evil things in their hearts;
They continually gather together for war.
They sharpen their tongues like a serpent;
The poison of asps is under their lips.Selah
Keep me, O Yehovah, from the hands of the wicked;
Preserve me from violent men,
Who have purposed to make my steps stumble.
The proud have hidden a snare for me, and cords;
They have spread a net by the wayside;
They have set traps for me. Selah
I said to the LORD: “You are my God;
Hear the voice of my supplications, O Yehovah.
O Yehovah the Lord, the strength of my salvation,
You have covered my head in the day of battle.
Do not grant, O Yehovah, the desires of the wicked;
Do not further his wicked scheme,
Lest they be exalted. Selah
“As for the head of those who surround me,
Let the evil of their lips cover them;
10 Let burning coals fall upon them;
Let them be cast into the fire,
Into deep pits, that they rise not up again.
11 Let not a slanderer be established in the earth;
Let evil hunt the violent man to overthrow him.”
12 I know that Yehovah will maintain
The cause of the afflicted,
And justice for the poor.
13 Surely the righteous shall give thanks to Your name;
The upright shall dwell in Your presence. Psalm 140
