Voting for Israel

18 08 2012

Many believers manage to suspend their principles when they step into the voting booth. This is wrong. We must vote the Bible. I vote pro-life. I vote pro Biblical marriage. And an uppermost criteria…I vote Israel. It must be stated that many Democrats are pro-Israel, but in this year’s presidential ballot there is a stark contrast.

President Obama speaks some good things about Israel, but his actions have been the opposite. We cannot judge by words. He has alienated our best friends in the Middle East, while directly encouraging the Muslim Brotherhood, who are sweeping into power throughout the region.

Meanwhile, a highly respected annual list in Israel names the most pro-Israel non-Jewish leaders in the world. Topping the 2012 listing was Mitt Romney, the US Presidential Candidate:

Love or hate his politics, Romney’s vocal support for Israel as a contender for the world’s top job, has challenged the incumbent and many Americans to rediscover their own understanding of the United States’ special relationship with the Jewish state.

His tough stance on Iran has put the Ayatollahs on notice.  In his recent trip to the Holy Land, he acknowledged Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and cited the historic connection of the Jewish people with the land, which has gone a long way in underlining the Jewish narrative regarding Israel on the world stage, thereby earning him the top spot this year.  the algemeiner

Following Romney on the list are Rupert Murdoch, CEO of News Corp, Stephen Harper, Prime Minister of Canada, and Manmohan Singh, Prime Minister of India.

Romney’s declaration of Jerusalem as Israel’s Capital challenged the diplomatic world which refuses to recognize the obvious. This weekend Romney again spoke against the diplomatic tide: U.S. presidential hopeful Mitt Romney blasts Obama on Iran, says America must lead the world in stopping ‘genocidal regime.’ Speaking after Ahmadinejad called Israel a “cancerous tumor that must be excised,” he said Obama had failed to prevent Iran from moving forward with its nuclear program. “America must lead the world in stopping Iran’s genocidal regime from obtaining a nuclear weapons capability,” he declared. His running mate Congressman Ryan said, “Under President Romney our adversaries will think twice about challenging America and our allies because we believe in peace through strength. There will be no daylight between America and our friends around the world.”

Vice Presidential Candidate, Paul Ryan, has long been considered pro-Israel:  America has no better friend in the Middle East than the nation of Israel. Not only is Israel the region’s only fully functioning democracy, with a government based on popular consent and the rule of law, but it is also a valuable ally against Islamic extremism and terrorism. He’s been the co-sponsor of no less than 5 pro-Israel bills and resolutions, and puts the issue “Israel” under the category “Homeland Security” on his Congressional website.

If you still struggle to justify voting please consider the Biblical counsel to “give unto Caesar” and to act on our faith. This is not a time to vote “present”, it is time to wake up, stand up, speak up and vote the Bible!

And He said to them, “Render therefore to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.” Matthew 22:21

But someone will say, “You have faith, and I have works.” Show me your faith without your works, and I will show you my faith by my works.  James 2:18

Just Pray NO!

Dear Les,

You and I are in total agreement. When people ask me which party I vote for, I reply – “I vote for the individual and not a party line.” My candidate of choice needs to be pro-life, pro-traditional marriage and pro-Israel.” Too many believers are voting based upon economic concerns or personalities. We need to vote for persons of moral character and trust God to supply all of our needs – not the government.
