The thousands of Christians in Washington – who came and are staying at their own expense – will be urging the US government “not to restrain Israel in any way in the pursuit of Hamas and Hezbollah”, he said.

  1. Absolutely…

    Israel was given by G-D to his people and he changes not.

    Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the Lord our G-d…Psalm 20-7

    I will call upon the Lord who is worthy to be praised: so I shall be saved from mine enemies…Psalm 18-3

    He delivered me from my strong enemy, and from them which hated me: for they were too strong for me…Psalm 18-17

    He changes not, and Israel is the apple of his eye, he will deliver his people from their peril.
