“During a wildly animated GOP debate Thursday evening, GOP front-runner Donald Trump asserted that, as president, he cannot side with Israel in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict because doing so would “demean” Palestinians.”
Blitzer then asked Trump, “How do you remain neutral when the U.S. considers Israel to be America’s closest ally in the Middle East?”
“Well, first of all I don’t think they do under President Obama, because I think he has treated Israel horribly,” began Trump. “Alright? I think he’s treated Israel horribly.”
Trump added, “I was the Grand Marshal down Fifth Avenue a number of years ago for the Israeli Day parade. I have very close ties to Israel. I’ve received the Tree of Life Award and many of the greatest awards given by Israel. As president, however, there’s nothing that I would rather do [than] bring peace to Israel and its neighbors.” And I say “yada yada yada.”
He then insisted, “I think it serves no purpose to say you have a good guy and a bad guy.” – source
Well, I have news for Mr. Trump. There IS a good guy and a bad guy in this battle. One is Israel – a “good guy” who is our closest ally in the Middle East, and who is rightfully dwelling in the land given to them by God Himself.
The “bad guy” is the Palestinian government who will not even say that Israel has a right to exist! It’s not rocket science, Mr. Trump!
How will Evangelicals take this news?
Up to this point, Trump has wooed the Evangelicals with his tough talk and brash manner. It has been said that Americans are angry. My dad always told us to never make a decision based upon emotions.
A question for so-called Evangelicals for Donald Trump: Do you care about Israel? If you truly care, then I pray that God opened your eyes last night, when Mr. Trump spoke the truth about how he would handle the conflict as president.
Get on your knees and ask your Father in heaven if you should still support this man Donald Trump!
