For These Reasons, Netanyahu

The Israeli government’s decision to disband the current Knesset in order to allow for elections to take place on January 22, 2013, is unlikely to affect Benjamin Netanyahu’s standing as prime minister. Polls indicate that Netanyahu’s Likud Party will be the largest party in the coming elections, possibly winning a greater number of seats in the Knesset than they currently possess.

The opinion here on the street here in Israel is that the January election is ultimately a referendum on whether Israel should attack Iran’s nuclear facilities or wait for the world to act – the latter is a possibility unlikely to occur. With elections out of the way, a Bibi-led government would have the general public’s consensus to tackle the Iranian threat, and if necessary, it would have the appropriate political capital to make the call to attack, with or without U.S. backing.

The Israeli public is well aware of the dangers posed by Iran. We have learned – after two decades of futile peace talks – that there is no partner for peace to be found within the Palestinian Authority, and we view the Arab revolutions sweeping the Middle East with great caution and concern.

For these reasons, Netanyahu has emerged as the politician most trusted to lead the country through the coming storms. He is viewed as the leader with the most resolve to strike Iran, the leader who will withstand pressure to offer dangerous and unilateral concessions to the Palestinians, and the leader who understands the perils brought upon by the “Arab Spring” to Israel’s security.

    I thank God for Prime Minister Netanyahu. What would we do without him and his resolve to protect and secure his people? I wish we in the U.S. had a leader like him! I support him and Israel!

    No enemy, great or small will EVER destroy Israel. I trust God with all my heart and He has Israel protected from ALL sides. I also believe that Mr. Netanyahu was selected by The God of Israel to lead His people. Although I too reside in the U.S,and I love and support my brothers & sisters in Israel. I plan to visit Jerusalem in 2013 and my dream is to meet Mr. Netanyahu, just to let him know that he is doing a great job under extreme pressure and that I too stand side by side with Israel, always!

    ISRAEL IS FOREVER. GOD HIMSELF is the guide and protector of Israel. All her enemies may try their best but JEHOVAH GOD will bring all their thoughts, plans and secrets to naught and ignominy.

    Our godless president, I fear, is not going to support Israel ever in her struggle against all the sons of Ishmael who would come against her. Jehova, however, will forever honor his everlasting covenant to keep his Chosen Ones, though they may see difficult times. All true fundamental Christians who read and believe the Torah stand behind you, but our leaders seem to have forgotten the God they serve, or may have no God at all. My tithes go to help your country by God’s leading. He implanted a deep love for the Jews in my heart though I have met only one person who ever let it be known he was Jewish! (I live in the deep South, US). God is working behind the scenes to see that your nation survives and your people will know that God will always keep his covenants. God bless!

    I think it may be too late to stop Iran’s nukes. WND has the Iranians only 2-3 months out fm a live detonation.

    I think it is important for the Jews to know there are many, many Christians who are standing with you in these perilous times. We are not in agreement with our current president and think he is a shame to represent our country and its values. Mr.Netanyahu is a great and respected leader by the Christians in America.

      Israel will be fine, the Lord Jesus Christ will always protect her. I love and pray for Israel, our God will hear our prayers. My country the United States, had better stand with her. I am not voting for Obama as I am upset with him regarding this issue. I support Israel, she is a peaceful place. That land is yours. God Bless You!

    Just an American wanting to say I stand for Israel, and believe the land belongs solely to her.

    I think Israel has put itself in a very dangerous position. If it does not alter it’s coarse it is domed to die. Violence begets violence. Do you not read your Torah?

    Israel needs a person of high resolve and concern
    for her continuation. Prime Minister Netanyahu IS
    that person! I would only hope and pray the U.S.
    President would stand with her–hopefully

    Know this that I am praying to my Lord JesusChrist for Israels peace and protection, and we in the United States stand with your decision to defend yourself against Iran or any other terrorist group.

Rabbi's Commentary
Clarity in a Confused World

In response to this week’s horrific terrorist attack on a Jerusalem synagogue, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu responded with a voice of moral clarity. We, as people of faith and conscience, must all cling to such clarity in a world so often ruled by moral confusion.
