Trump Stands with Israel

12 09 2018

John BoltonThis week the Trump Administration made two more decisive declarations, in a speech by US National Security Adviser John Bolton. He announced the closing of the Palestinian office in Washington, DC and also denounced the International Criminal Court (ICC). The PLO office was closed for calling for the ICC to charge Israelis with war crimes and for lack of cooperation with President Trump on his peace plan. The ICC was rejected officially because they threatened to charge our soldiers in Afghanistan with war crimes. The ICC has done the same with Israeli soldiers without charging Hamas terrorists who regularly attack civilians including women and children. Hamas is on our terrorist list and is well-known for using women and children as human shields. Yet, the ICC only charges Israel and the US.

John Bolton threatens war crimes court with sanctions in virulent attack US national security adviser calls ICC illegitimate and says “we will let it die on its own.” “The United States will use any means necessary to protect our citizens and those of our allies from unjust prosecution by this illegitimate court,” Bolton said.

He said the Trump administration would “fight back” and impose sanctions – even seeking to criminally prosecute ICC officials – if the court formally proceeded with opening an investigation into alleged war crimes committed by US military and intelligence staff during the war in Afghanistan or pursued any investigation into Israel or other US allies.

If the court comes after us, Israel, or other US allies we will not sit quietly,” he said, also threatening to impose the same sanctions on any country that aided the investigation.He condemned the inquiry into war crimes in Afghanistan as an “utterly unfounded, unjustifiable investigation” and the court as illegitimate“We will let the ICC die on its own. After all, for all intents and purposes, the ICC is already dead,” Bolton said. The Guardian

Bolton: International Criminal Court Will Face Repercussions If Americans Prosecuted – “The United States will use any means necessary to protect our citizens and those of our allies from unjust prosecution by the illegitimate court,” Bolton said during a speech to the Federalist Society in Washington, D.C. He said the court is a threat to American sovereignty and national security, arguing that the court has very little accountability and that its definitions of crimes are “vague and subject to wide-ranging interpretation.”

Calling the proposed investigation of war crimes in Afghanistan “utterly unfounded,” Bolton said the Trump administration will ban the court’s judges and prosecutors from entering the US if they move ahead with any prosecutions of Americans. Bolton also warned that the administration would work to sanction the funds of ICC officials and that officials would be prosecuted in U.S. criminal courts.

I praise God that the Trump Administration continues to stand with Israel. It is the singular most important reason that Yehovah is blessing our President. The plots against him will fail as long as he stays true to Israel. We must pray for him faithfully. There are many believers who believe that President Donald Trump is a modern fulfillment of the ancient Persian King Cyrus who helped the Jews rebuild Jerusalem.

This is what Yehovah says to Cyrus, his anointed one,
whose right hand he will empower.
Before him, mighty kings will be paralyzed with fear.
Their fortress gates will be opened,
never to shut again.
This is what Yehovah says:
“I will go before you, Cyrus,
and level the mountains. 
I will smash down gates of bronze
and cut through bars of iron.
And I will give you treasures hidden in the darkness—
secret riches.
I will do this so you may know that I am Yehovah,
the God of Israel, the one who calls you by name. Isaiah 45:1-3 NLT

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain.

I praise God/Yehovah as well. I believe Trump is certainly the most pro-Israel president… EVER! Which, in my books, helps put him among the best US Presidents ever.
