We shouldn't turn away from supporting Israel

Is it our right to tell Israel what to do with the territory won in the 1967 war? Do we actually think we Americans know what's best for Israel?

Are you interested in sending a petition to the United Nations delegation before September to tell them we oppose any division of Jerusalem, and we reject establishing a foreign Palestinian state within the boundaries of Jerusalem? The Holy Scripture declares that God will bless those who bless Israel, and quite the opposite is true if we turn our backs.

We must know that giving Jerusalem to the Palestinians will not bring peace to the Middle East. It will instead put a curse on every nation that comes against Israel.
