Obama is dangerous for Israel

But Obama is even more dangerous for America. How? He is no friend to Israel, and in his speech today, Obama told Israel to give up more land. This will bring judgment upon the US. Today in his speech on Middle East issues, Obama said,

"The borders of Israel and a Palestinian state should be based on pre-1967 borders with agreed swaps..."But what America and the international community can do is state frankly what everyone knows: a lasting peace will involve two states for two peoples." He means divide part of Israel up and give it to the Palestinians for their own state.

This proposal was not taken well by Israel's Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu. "Netanyahu blasts Obama proposal, calls 1967 borders 'indefensible'
Forcefully stepping into an explosive Middle East debate, President Barack Obama on Thursday endorsed a key Palestinian demand for the borders of its future state and prodded Israel to accept that it can never have a truly peaceful nation based on "permanent occupation." Obama's urging that a Palestinian state be based on 1967 borders — before the Six Day War in which Israel occupied East Jerusalem, the West Bank and Gaza — was a significant shift in the U.S. approach. It drew an immediate negative response from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who is to meet with Obama at the White House Friday. In a statement released late Thursday in Jerusalem, Netanyahu called the 1967 lines "indefensible," saying such a withdrawal would jeopardize Israel's security and leave major West Bank settlements outside Israeli borders, though Obama left room for adjustments reached through negotiations."

This is not good news for Israel, and it is my opinion that the worst suspicions of the 2008 discerning electorate have now proven true: Obama as head of the United States is abandoning Israel as an ally and is actually an active enemy of that nation.

Joel C. Rosenberg (http://www.joelrosenberg.com) is the founder of The Joshua Fund and the author of eight New York Times best-selling novels and non-fiction books, with more than two million copies in print. He has also produced two documentary films, based on his two non-fiction books. previously worked as an aide to several U.S. and Israeli leaders, including Steve Forbes, former Israeli Deputy Prime Minister Natan Sharansky, and then-former Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. He is the son of a Jewish father and a Gentile mother, Joel is an evangelical Christian with a passion to make disciples of all nations and teach Bible prophecy.

He is hosting a conference in Israel this week on the Book of Joel. On his blog, Rosenberg said today of Obama's proposal to return to 1967 borders and his proposal to carve up more land:

"Do not divide the Land of Israel — In my message about the final chapter of the Book of Joel, I explained the warning to the nations that the Lord gives. I focused in particular on Joel 3:2 (which is 4:2 in the Hebrew Bible) in which the Lord says, “I will gather all the nations and bring them down to the valley of Jehoshaphat. Then I will enter into judgment with them there on behalf of My people and My inheritance, Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations; and they have divided up My land.” The Bible is very clear: the Lord is going to judge all the nations for dividing up the Land of Israel. Let the United Nations and the United States and the European Union and the Palestinian Authority and the Israeli government itself be warned. What appears like wisdom to the world — carving up the State of Israel like a Thanksgiving turkey — is direct disobedience to the Word of God and will trigger the most severe divine judgment. This is a hard truth for many to hear and to hold, particularly for Palestinian Arabs and others in the epicenter. But we do Israel’s Arab friends and enemies no favors by denying, obfuscating or trying to explain away the clear teaching of the Lord found in the Scriptures. We must teach the truth. We must do so gently and lovingly, but we must also be clear and firm."

It is an inescapable fact that Israel will be divided and Jerusalem given over to the Gentiles. Joel 3:2 and Revelation 11:2 show us that. It is also an inescapable fact that the Holy Land is God's land, and He will judge all nations that divide it or that pressure Israel to divide it.

Zechariah 12:3 says that at the time of the very end, Israel has no friend, all nations are gathered against her. America must now be moved over to the enemies side, and woe unto us that abandon God's nation.


  1. When I read these articles earlier about what was said I literally felt sick to my stomach. Saddens me but as we have seen so many changes, signs in the last 3-4 years there had to be a day. Pray - pray for mercy. God is so mighty!

  2. I felt sick, too. Woe to those who abandon Israel! :( Even with Bible prophecy, even expecting it, doesn't make it any easier to swallow. My heart breaks for Israel.

  3. It's all out in the open now....I don't even know what to say...this will only get worse...we are taking one step away from israel and 3 steps towards the middle east (which makes absolutely no sense since we are in astounding debt and it's OBVIOUS the direction the egyptian government and every other government that is going through these upheavals are going). The pressure that will now be mounted upon Israel to divide it's land will probably become brutal. God help us and we must continue to pray for Israel and for Bibi Netenyahu to turn to The Lord not just as the God of his fathers but as the saviour and redeemer of his soul!

  4. Let us not forget that Barack Obama overwhelmingly won the Jewish vote in 2008 and will win it again in 2012.

    The vast majority of Jewish presidential campaign contributions went to Barack Obama in 2008 and this will again be the case in 2012.

    As a Jew I know these people well. As a Christian they break my heart.

    The majority of them are secular. Psychiatry, pop psychology, law, finance, things made with human hands, wisdoms of the day - these are the things that impress them. All the while this tug in their soul that they interpret as mystery guilt, but they don't know what it is or where it comes from.

    They are the light of the world; that abdicated.

    Thus Barack Obama is a man that makes sense to them. The knife that slits their own throats would make sense to them.

    It is the price of abdication - the scales before their eyes so that the Lord's Scriptures may be fulfilled.

    So let us not forget, we will all go to pull the levers again in 2012, and the Jewish hand will predominantly be on the lever that says "Barack Obama."

  5. Paul reminds us in Romans 11:25 that God has partly spiritually blinded them as punishment for their rejection of Him. Acts 15:15 continues the thought that during this time, Jesus is taking a people for His name. That's us, the Church. When the church arrives in heaven, the sign of the rapture, the Jews blindness will be lifted and they will be jealous, because they will remember what Jesus said - that the tax collectors and prostitutes will gain the kingdom before they do (Mt 21:32)The Jews will believe the ANTICHRIST is their Messiah, that is how blinded they are. So in accepting Obama they accept a forerunner of antichrist. They know not what they do!

  6. I agree wholeheartedly, Elizabeth, and while it is part of God's plan, that heart aches for them and what they will have to endure!!! :(

  7. I read this story and immediately realized that speaking out against Israel like this, America will no longer be the blessed nation we've always been. I pray that God has mercy on America and that come 2012 we elect someone who is a true friend to Israel and a Jesus-believing, God fearing Christian.

  8. I'm the Jewish believer who wrote the post above. I'd just like to expand out a little more my thoughts about my people if I may.

    The Jews are like an axis - you will find that much of what shapes the world in one way or another revolves around them.

    Those without the Spirit, those living in darkness, are capable of only seeing this from one angle. They note that Karl Marx was a Jew. They note that Sigmund Freud was a Jew. They look at our economy today and they note that Ben Shalom Bernanke, chairman of the Federal Reserve, that cabal of private bankers (the Federal Reserve is not a government agency, it is actually a privately owned banking corporation), is a Jew. They look and see how Ben has more than doubled the money supply in the last 2 years, greatly enriching the bankers and global elite while the working people go down the drain. They note that the previous chairman of the Federal Reserve was a Jew, and how every chairman going back to it's inception in 1913, and the vast majority of it's board of governors have been Jews.

    And so it seems to them that every time there is trouble, chaos and collapse in the world that it always traces back to a Jew stirring the pot.

    And from a particular angle they are correct.

    But it is an angle without the Spirit. The Spirit teaches us their true nature.

    And with the Spirit we understand that because of the Covenant they are the light of the world. The very soil from which Salvation grows. The soil in which our Savior and his movement were planted. The soil that would grow the tree into which the gentiles, by God's Grace could be grafted.

    But conversely, because of their abdication and because mammon is their god, you find a Jew authoring almost every piece of foolishness that the world gets entangled up into. Almost every piece of man-made wisdom that the evil one loves to use to lead men astray has at least in significant part Jewish authorship: Communism, atheism, secular humanism, relativism and all the worldly wisdoms that attempt to squeeze the Living God out of the equation.

    And many of the cultural high priests of this malarkey permeate our entertainment, politics, journalism, law, banking and the like.

    Barack Obama is a gentile high priest of this lunacy. Other high priests, gentile and Jew alike of this idiocy are Jon Stewart, Bill Maher, David Gregory, David Letterman, John Kerry - the list is in the thousands and they saturate our culture at all levels.

    And the pattern keeps repeating. Sooner or later societies come crashing down, and sooner or later the Jews, sometimes quite ungraciously are asked to leave, or worse yet forced to leave, or even worse still are imprisoned or killed.

    It is a seemingly odd role for such a small people to be the axis of world history and world events. But God in his Wisdom singled out this people for just this role.

    Many would be enraged beyond measure by what I've said. Many more would just shrug their shoulders because it's gibberish to them. Only through the gift of the Holy Spirit can those of us being saved hope to understand and untangle who these people are.

    But those lacking the Spirit don't have a clue why the Jews are always in the pickle they're in. This is especially true of the Jews themselves.

    So we have to pray hard for them, especially those Jews who are clearly being called. Bibi Netanyahu is one such man being called. I think he's starting to hear the phone ringing. Though he may not know yet that it is the Lord Jesus on the other end.

  9. Thank you for your comment. I agree with some, disagree with other parts, and frankly some is gibberish to me.

    I agree that without the spirit we are lost and blind. This is true for all people. But it is especially true for the Jews who have been partially spiritually blinded until the full number of the Gentiles comes in (Church Age concluded(Romans 1:25.)

    I agree we have to pray for the Jews. They will be in for a rough time. Most of them will die, except for those who make it to Petra and are supernaturally protected by Jesus during the Tribulation (Mt 24:16-22)

    God has come to man in different ways to effect a reconciliation between Himself and His creation. One of those ways was through the Nation of Israel. The nation of Israel was intended to be the Light of the world, but they rebelled and He used the Gentiles instead.

    Salvation currently is proclaimed thru the Church Age believers. (Acts 15:14.) It is why the Pharisees were so mad when Jesus said to them that they are condemned and the Gentiles (tax collectors and prostitutes) will reach the Kingdom before they do.

    I disagree that the bad books were all written by Jews. And that the philosophical paradigms like communism, fascism, socialism etc were started by the Jews.

    The Jews are 'in a pickle' because Jesus is punishing them for their rebelliousness. But He will save a remnant and they will inherit the Kingdom on earth for 1000 years, just as He promised.
