Many are the disappointments with the Bush Administration. My greatest disappointment with the President is how he can lead in some areas with such clarity, and then in others he seems to be blinded to the truth. This is nowhere more apparent then his dealings with Israel.
Many people, so-called conservatives, in their desperation to defeat Hillary, prop up Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice as a GOP candidate for President. What do they know about her? What is her stance on abortion, same-sex marriage, taxes, immigration, is she a federalist? One thing we do know about Secretary Rice is that she has the same blind spot President Bush suffers from when it comes to Israel.
(A BIG THANK YOU to John Hartley for sending this to me!)
After reading this column, I urge all of you to contact via email and call the White House and the State Department and voice your support of all of Israel’s redline positions.
Understand when you send emails to both the White House and the State Department you will get an auto-response; that’s okay because your comments are being recorded. When you call on the phone, please tell the operator that you would like to register your support for all of Israel’s redline positions and do not support the President’s and Secretary Rice’s insistence on Israel reversing these positions. We must do all we can to support Israel. (See below for contacts)
I want to leave you with an excerpt from my book, Understanding Evangelicals: A Guide to Jesusland.” It’s from Chapter 8, Foreign Affairs, and it is subtitled, No Compromise on Israel. I pray it will help clear up why we should support Israel.
