Asking Israel to return to pre 1967 borders is an affront to Israel. The United States has always promised Israel defensible borders and this suggestion is not defensible. God said judgment would come to all who try and divide up His land (Joel 3:2). Giving back the West Bank, Gaza, and the Golan Heights, East Jerusalem and returning to an 8 mile width will not be defensible. It will prove to be the demise of Israel.
Hopefully, Prime Minister Netanyahu will reject this ridiculous proposal. It will lead to more anti Semitic attacks on Israel’s right to exist. A two state solution will never work as long as Israel is seen as an occupier. Jews have lived in this area since Biblical times.
A recent Pew study shows that Muslim nations dio not even like Obama. President Obama’s offer to facilitate Mideast peace by returning these lands does not even help his efforts to curry favor with Muslim nations . One possible explanation is that contrary to popular opinion as voiced by Farrakhan and others, Muslims do not like Blacks. Muhammad owned black slaves and African Muslims were active in the slave trade.
In the Hadith, the holy writings of Muhammad, he says that blacks will not get to heaven until they turn white. Muhammad called blacks “raisin heads” and thus a Black Muslim should be an oxymoron.
