This week Donald Trump said that he would remain neutral when it comes to the Israeli/Palestinian conflict — he doesn't want to take sides. Maybe he should also be neutral between ISIS and the Christians they are killing? Maybe he should be neutral between the 9/11 terrorists and the Americans they attacked? According to Obama's pastor Reverend Wright, we deserved it.
I understand that he was looking at it like a businessman making a deal. But this is far bigger than a "deal" — there are spiritual dynamics that he can't even begin to comprehend. There are end-time implications for America if we continue to turn against Israel.
Furthermore, when it comes to Mexico, he is quick to give his opinion. When it comes to China, he doesn't hold back. When we're talking about the Iran deal, there is no hesitation. When has Trump ever failed to give bold, brash opinion? Yet when asked who's to blame for the Israeli/Palestinian conflict, he prefers to be neutral. He has no principled opinion.
Everyone is ready to go after the terrorists wherever they can be found, except when they attack Israelis. Suddenly, Donald needs to be neutral.
At a time when college campuses in America are more and more anti-Israel we need a president who will stand up and say, "I support Israel! Period. I support freedom in the Middle East, not tyranny, I support democracy, not oppression."
We need a president who will send a bold message that he stands with the Jewish state against the terrorists that surround her and want to destroy her. Clearly Donald Trump is not that man.
I'll be the first to admit that there are some unattractive qualities about Senator Ted Cruz, but when it comes to Israel, he is the boldest voice in the pack. He bases his love for Israel on the Bible. On day one, he said he'll begin the process of moving the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
"I am not neutral," Cruz declared to cheers and applause from rally goers, "between murderers and the innocent citizens murderers are targeting. I am not neutral at home or abroad between radical Islamic terrorists and the targets of their terror."
In fact, when speaking to so-called Chirstians from the Middle East, the crowd booed Cruz for his Israel support.
Cruz said, "If you will not stand with Irsael and the Jews, then I will not stand with you."
If you are a Christian and you love Israel you cannot vote for Donald Trump. If you think there is a difference between being a democratic country and a terrorist organization like the PLO and Hamas, you cannot vote for Trump.
Imagine telling a rape victim that you need to remain neutral. How many thousands of Israelis need to die before we understand that Gaza is a terror state?
President Mahoud Abbas has not even condemned one act of terror during these recent stabbings on the streets of Israel. On the other hand when a Jewish young man committed an act of terror he was arrested and convicted and put in jail for the rest of his life. However in Ramallah they name streets after terrorists and city squares after suicide bombers and hand out candy and treats whenever someone commits an act of terror. And Donald is going to treat them the same way he treats Israel?
