Standing with God's People

NEWS: Israel has come under heavy criticism from the international community because of its raid on a flotilla bound for the Gaza Strip. These ships were boarded to stop the flow of rockets into Gaza that so often strike at the people. These ships housed people with terrorist ties, and video taken during the incident shows that it was only as a last result that the Israelis opened fire, as members of the Turkish crew attacked and beat Israelis who were trying to inspect the ship. It is Israel's right to secure its boarders, and to take steps to defend its citizens.

WHAT YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT: When it comes to Israel, the Bible says in Genesis 12:3: "I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee..." One of the reasons America has been so blessed in the past is because of its strong stand with Israel. God will honor His Word regarding how we treat His chosen people. As America's relationship with Israel has been deteriorating, please pray that our leaders will stand with Israel in this event. It is for the Israeli's good as well as our own.
