Benjamin Netanyahu & Our Yahoo

Back in 1980 I heard a political commentator say that there were only two strong leaders in the world:  Margaret Thatcher of Great Britain and Anwar Sadat of Egypt.  I would add the name John Paul II.  Jimmy Carter was President then and exceeded as a disaster among modern Presidents only by the current occupant of the White House, Barack Obama.

Today the world suffers as there is only one real leader, Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel.  He intends to save his nation whether we help or not.  Our President seems intent on weakening America, standing with Iran and stiff arming Israel.  This is despicable and dangerous as God blesses those who stand with His Chosen and curses those who do not. (Genesis 12:3, Numbers 24:9)  And Zechariah 2:8 indicates it does not pay to touch the apple of God’s Eye, Israel.  The Assyrians, Babylonians, Romans, Nazis and Soviets all discovered that too late.  Let it not happen to us under a delusional yahoo who can still do much harm.

In 1980 there was a man named Ronald Reagan waiting in the wings.  Today our choices are not that promising. Hillary Clinton may be better than Barack but that is saying very little.  She certainly does not have the skill of her husband, Bill.  He had a relatively successful Presidency for all his foibles which go on today with his recent secret conference (which turned out not to be so secret) with AG Loretta Lynch.

Donald Trump is a wild card given to popping off even as Hillary is buttoned up to the point of embarrassment–if the Clintons are capable of embarrassment.  One has the feeling that Mrs. Clinton says nothing that is not poll tested. About the best that can be said for The Donald was perhaps summed up by Rudy Giuliani.  The former mayor of New York said recently,   “We know Hillary is a failure.  I am willing to take a chance on an unknown like Donald Trump.” That is not exactly a ringing endorsement.  And Trump may also fail but we know Hillary to be a lying incompetent and a shallow opportunist.  And she shows no sign of maturity when it comes to Israel.  Donald Trump promises to stand with our ally in the Middle East.

When Golda Meir (who went to Denver North High School) was Prime Minister of Israel, Richard Nixon promised to guarantee their security.  She replied, “By the time you get here, we won’t be here.”  Like Benjamin Netanyahu, she knew Israel needs to first defend herself.  There is a poem by Stephen Crane which reads:

A man said to the universe,

“Sir, I exist!”

“However,” replied the universe,

“That fact creates in me

No sense of obligation.”

Both Golda Meir and Benjamin Netanyahu understand that the cold universe of nations may not stand with them but God does.  If there was ever a time to pray for our nation to also stand with God and His Chosen surely it is now.  Our survival depends upon it for God blesses those who bless Israel and curses those who do not.  Let us stand with Netanyahu rather than our Yahoo.
