While I believe that Israel could survive with out us, the second part is absolutely true, and I most certainly fall in that category.They cannot survive without us and the real dilemma is that their strongest supporters are Christians for Israel even those most Christians for Israel are strong Conservatives.
2012 years ago? Not much. Jesus was only 8-16 about then.I find it very strange that the strongest supporters of the Jews in Israel come from Christian supporters here. Refresh my mind and tell me the story of what happened at Easter time some 2012 years ago.
I said the story, no where did I imply fact.2012 years ago? Not much. Jesus was only 8-16 about then.
If you're referring to Easter at about 29-33AD, well, God's plan was full filled, and Roman soldiers, at the behest of jealous Jewish leadership, crucified Jesus. While the Church as a whole doesn't have the best history in dealing with the Jewish people, a large number of Christians today are realizing that mistake, and are dedicated to helping Israel.
One last thing on the United State's dealings with Israel, a lot of that technology flow goes both ways. Remember the Emergency bandage, aka the Israeli dressing? Or missile interception technology? Drones? How about all the advancements our in the military tech? The Middle Eastern wars were great ways for both the Soviet Union and US to test and upgrade their military tech. In fact, I'd be willing to say that Israel actually had benefited us more than most countries we sell weapons, and give foreign aid to.
Okay but don't forget politics and religion are deeply entwined and it's therefore difficult to talk about one without the other, especially as religious conflict could trigger nuclear war, which as preppers/survivalists should interest us...Alright, we've ventured very much off subject, from the realm of politics, to a complete theological discussion. As the other religious thread on here was locked, let's steer this one away from religion, and back to politics..
