Netanyahu’s Devotion to Israel- if only America had the same!

If only…A real leader in America

He stood at the podium and paraphrased Deuteronomy 30:19, “…I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life that both you and your seed may live.” He went on to explain what it means to those he represents and to himself personally. He spoke about how he wanted to talk about his nation by drawing a line “between life and death, between right and wrong, between the blessings of a brilliant future and the curses of a dark past.” He talked about the compassion of his nation, a moral divide that separates his nation from its enemies–loving life verses loving death. He received standing ovation one after another. He is not American. He is Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel speaking in Washington, DC.

Americans could have gotten a first hand glimpse of a real leader and a real statesman. But the news media doesn’t want to cover someone who tells the truth, especially if the truth is something about which they are in denial. Speaking about the humanitarian efforts of Israel in Syria, Gaza, Haiti, Turkey, Japan, and the Philippines, Netanyahu said, “In the Middle East, bludgeoned by butchery and barbarism, Israel is human; Israel is compassionate; Israel is a force for good.” In contrast, Netanyahu said, “Now, on the other side of that moral divide, steeped in blood and savagery, stand the forces of terror–Iran, Assad, Hezbollah, al Qaeda, and many others.”

Netanyahu painted a very detailed picture of the lack of leadership in the United States regarding the issue of a nuclear Iran. He warned America, saying, “Iran’s missiles can already reach Israel, so those ICBMs that they’re building, they’re not intended for us. You remember that beer commercial, “this Bud’s for you”? Well, when you see Iran building ICBNs, just remember, America, that Scud’s for you…And guess what tune they’re singing in Tehran? It’s not “God Bless America,” it’s “death to America.” And they chant this as brazenly as ever.” Netanyahu pointed out that credible foreign policy does not allow terrorists to have a nuclear bomb; and that the White House approach will make war more likely.

Netanyahu stood up for his nation and gave a valiant and realistic assessment of right-minded leadership, character, and national security. If only we had an American president who loved his country so much that he would do everything within his power to build that nation up, rather than work overtime for its destruction. If only we had an American electorate that loved their Lord and Savior so much that they would use their God-granted freedom to preserve their nation as that shining city set on a hill that cannot be hid. If only we had an American president and electorate that would let their light so shine before men, that they may see their good works, and glorify their Father which is in heaven. If only…

Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
