BLAIR TO PRESS BUSH ON IRAQ & ISRAEL
Agenda: Divide Israel, Let U.N. Oversee Iraq Reconstruction
"When I restore the fortunes of Judah and Jerusalem, I will gather all nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. There I will enter into judgment against them concerning my inheritance, my people Israel, for they scattered my people among the nations and divided up my land... (Joel 3:1-4).
British Prime Minister Tony Blair will join President Bush at Camp David for two days of talks beginning this evening. Chief items on the agenda are the post-war establishment of a Palestinian State and Blair's wish that the U.N. and not the Coalition nations be the ones to plan and execute Iraq's reconstruction.
-Blair is still under political pressure at home. Until a few days ago, a majority of Brits opposed his pro-war stance. Yet, Blair has stood courageously with the U.S. and President George Bush.
-Blair wants Bush to forget all differences with France and Germany and to include them as partners in the effort to rebuild Iraq - under U.N. auspices. The nations most opposed to U.S. military action in Iraq (the French, Russians, Germans and the Arab nations) are now the most determined to influence post-war Iraq.
-Blair has publicly expressed the "need" for the U.S. to pressure Israel to create a Palestinian State shortly after the war with Iraq is completed.
Would not our pandering to the U.N. be a desecration of the lives of our young men who spilled their blood on the Iraqi battlefield? Once we win the war against Saddam Hussein, who swore to destroy Israel, will we now champion the violent Palestinians who danced in the streets on September 11, 2001? Will we liberate Iraq only to defy the God of the Bible by forcing Israel to divide their land among their violent enemies?
God knows our hearts and plans. Will Almighty God bless us so that we can defy Him even more?
Please Join Us in pleading to God:
--Father, HELP us to stand for RIGHTEOUSNESS, even if every world nation opposes us. HELP us STAND by tiny Israel as the nations of the World, driven by irrational hatred, gather against it.
--Grant the President Wisdom, Understanding & Courage to do Your will. In Jesus Name, Amen (1 Kg 3:7-12; 28; 4:30-31; Joel 3:1ff; Zech 12:1-10)
