According to Israel National News (INN), a tersely worded letter from a group of rabbis representing the “Committee to Save the Land and People of Israel” has warned U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry to stop all attempts to demand parts of the Holy Land in exchange for peace with Palestinians.
The letter says Kerry’s demand that Israel give up part of the Holy Land for peace is tantamount to a declaration of war on God, Who gave that land to the Jewish people for all time.
This matter is not to be taken lightly. As the rabbis point out, the United States of America is actively acting against the interests of the nation of Israel, and this offense will severely impact our national destiny.
The recent letter written by a committee of rabbis to Secretary of State John Kerry shows just how antagonistic United States foreign policy has become toward the nation of Israel.
The rabbis liken Secretary Kerry to some of the greatest enemies of Israel of all time. Since John Kerry is the highest diplomatic representative of the Obama administration, Barack Obama is implied to be among those enemies, as well.
In extended excerpts from the letter obtained by Israel National News, the rabbis issue a dire warning to Kerry and the Obama administration that God takes serious issue with their insistence that Israel give up part of the Holy Land and turn over half of Jerusalem as an Arab capital, in exchange for peace.
Your incessant efforts to expropriate integral parts of our Holy Land and hand them over to Abbas’s terrorist gang, amount to a declaration of war against the Creator and Ruler of the universe. For G-d awarded the entire Land of Israel to our ancestors, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, in order that they bequeath it, as an everlasting inheritance, to their descendants, the Jewish people, until the end of all time.
If you continue on this destructive path, you will ensure your everlasting disgrace in Jewish history for bringing calamity upon the Jewish people – like Nebuchadnezzar and Titus who destroyed, respectively, the first and second great Temples and the entire Holy City of Jerusalem, and who, by Heavenly punishment, brought eventual disaster upon themselves, too.
By the power of our Holy Torah, we admonish you to cease immediately all efforts to achieve these disastrous agreements – in order to avoid severe Heavenly punishment for everyone involved.
Barack Obama’s Middle East policies are dangerously naïve.
Liberty Counsel has posted warnings for several years against the Obama administration’s misguided efforts to craft agreements that take land from the Israelis and give it to the Palestinians in exchange for peace.
In his first term, President Obama redefined U.S. policy for the region by suggesting that adopting the 1967 borders, with so-called “territorial swaps,” be the starting point for peace negotiations.
By advancing such a misguided proposal, he fueled the fire in the escalating crisis between the United States and Israel. In response, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu emphatically asserted that there would be no “land for peace deals” – and that before any agreement could be reached, the Palestinians must first accept Israel’s right to exist as a nation-state.
President Obama’s actions undermining the nation of Israel openly flaunt the promise God made in Genesis 12:3, when He said of Israel, “I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse…”
We, the American people, must choose to stand with Israel even if those in control of American foreign policy refuse to. We must make it known to Israel’s leadership, to the United States Congress, and to Secretary of State John Kerry that the American people do, unreservedly, “Stand with Israel.”
To that end, Liberty Counsel has issued an open letter to American and Israeli leadership that declares in part:
In light of the failed foreign policies of our current American administration that have brought the Middle East into a dangerous state of upheaval, we, the undersigned American citizens, express our unwavering resolve to ‘Stand with Israel.’
Secretary of State John Kerry oversees a failed Middle East foreign policy.
The President’s proposal places Israel at a marked disadvantage in resolving ongoing Middle East conflicts.
The fact is, former “land for peace” agreements, such as the infamous Gaza withdrawal, only increased close-range terrorist attacks which killed many innocent men, women, and children, as was also noted in the rabbis’ letter.
The inevitability of such a plan’s failure underscores our President’s naivety in understanding the underlying causes of the region’s turmoil. It’s obvious that our current Commander-In-Chief has not learned from the mistakes of the past.
