Cause and effect

Ahead of Obama’s visit to Israel on the 20th where it is expected he will ask for Netanyahu’s plans for withdraw from the West Bank, I thought I would spend some time looking at the times in the past when the US had worked against Israel and worked at achieving peace in the region at the sacrifice of its lands.

I had heard before of bad things happening when those in charge of the US moved against what God had decreed, but it seemed that those lists never came with links to corroborate.  They were just lists of x happened, then y happened with dates.  But I wanted to see for myself.  I wanted links.  Here is a list, and here are links:

 

On that day I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock.  All the nations will gather against it to try to move it, but they will only hurt themselves.
Zechariah 12:3 (NLT)

 

I will gather the armies of the world into the valley of Jehoshaphat.  There I will judge them for harming my people, my special possession, for scattering my people among the nations, and for dividing up my land.
Joel 3:2 (NLT)

September 29, 2012– A report is released showing that Obama has invited many members of the Muslim Brotherhood and the Palestinian Hamas to the white house despite their known dedicated to destroying Israel.  Then there’s the story breaking of Obama offering to reopen ties with Iran and conducting secret talks about their nuclear program. Or maybe it was the fact that no one spoke out against Iran and for Israel’s right to exist.

This is by no means a complete list, but it’s all I have the energy to compile at this point.  Makes me think though, that maybe I will just stay in bed on the 20th and monitor the news.
