Obama went to church to hear a Pro-Palestinian message

Obama went to church for the third time in a year...and the guest speaker happened to be a Pro-Palestinian speaker Dr Ziad Asali. From Israel Today

"Before last Sunday, US President Barack Obama and his family had only been to church a handful of times since he became commander-in-chief. And two of those visits were for Inauguration Day and Easter.
The Obama family’s sixth time at church in Washington, DC may also have been for a special occasion - to hear a pro-Palestinian activist teach about how Israel needs to surrender its biblical heartland for a phony “peace.” The president, his wife Michelle and their two daughters attended St. John’s Church, an Episcopal church just across the street from the White House, for the morning service on September 19. Low and behold, that is the same morning that guest speaker Ziad Asali of the American Task Force on Palestine (ATFP) had the podium. Asali and the ATFP pretend to want a lasting two-state solution to the conflict, but also advocate the demographic destruction of the Jewish state by supporting the demand that Israel open its gates to millions of so-called “Palestinian refugees.” The ATFP blames Israel for the current situation, and wants it to apologize for its rebirth as a nation-state, while Asali draws moral equivalency between Palestinian terrorism and Israeli counter-terrorism operations. Asali and the ATFP are likewise linked to a number of unsavory pro-Palestinian figures who were once on Obama’s guest list. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the US mainstream media ignored the fact that a Muslim with a thinly-veiled anti-Israel message was preaching on the day that the Obama family attended church for only the third time in the past year."

US News & World Report covered it, but is doing its best to convince us Obama is not a Muslim, beginning with their title:

Obama Goes to Christian Church

WASHINGTON - President Obama attended church on Sunday for the first time since April as an increasing number of Americans believe - falsely - that he is Muslim, not Christian. The entire First Family walked from the White House across Lafayette Square Park to St. John's Episcopal Church, the quaint house of worship informally known as the Church of the Presidents. The Obamas sat a few rows back from the altar among about 40 worshipers. The President and First Lady Michelle Obama, along with their daughters, went up for Communion. Obama last attended church in Washington on Easter Sunday, April 4. He has not joined a church in the capital, giving the reason that his presence - and that of his large entourage - would disrupt other people's worship. His low-profile Christianity may be playing into the Muslim myth, however. A Pew poll last month showed 18% of Americans - and nearly one-third of Republicans - wrongly believe Obama is a Muslim. Former Secretary of State Colin Powell, a Republican who backed Obama, suggested yesterday the public doubts about Obama's religion have more to do with a weak economy. "I'll bet you a dollar if the unemployment rate was not 9.6%, but it was down to 4%, then you would find only 5% thinking he's Muslim," Powell said on NBC's "Meet the Press."

Yeah, that's it. A high unemployment rate and the President's choice of religion are tied together. So why didn't anyone think Jimmy Carter was a Muslim?

What God says:

Zechariah 12:2-3 prophesies that Israel will be alone in the world, with no allies nor friends. We see this coming close to fulfillment today. Even their staunch friend and ally the US is abandoning them, and Obama can only be called a hostile enemy to Israel.

Many nations will try to remove Israel from her land and will fail. Not only will Israel have no friends in the world, but most of the world will be Israel's enemy. Psalm 83 says that many nations speak of wiping her off the face of the planet. "They have said, "Come, and let us wipe them out as a nation, That the name of Israel be remembered no more." (Psalm 83:4)

At the very end, all the nations of the world will attack Israel. "Judah will be besieged as well as Jerusalem. "On that day, when all the nations of the earth are gathered against her, I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock for all the nations. All who try to move it will injure themselves." But, as Zechariah 12:9 states, "On that day I will set out to destroy all the nations that attack Jerusalem." Between now and when the LORD saves His nation, His land, and His people, it will only become more tense in the Middle East and lonelier for Israel. Pray for them!
