Stand with Israel

I try real hard to not get political on this blog. The purpose of this blog is to remind us of Papa's blessings to each of us daily. But sometimes, things just kinda happen...ya know what I mean? Well, anyway, our main stream media seems to have kinda forgotten that this week Israel celebrated it's 61st anniversary of being a country. In fact, our government seems to have either forgotten what a good friend Israel has been to the US or hasn't read the 'back of the Book' to know that turning our back on Israel is not a good idea. I realize that I'm just one, but if we work together, perhaps we can make a difference. One of my Senators has heard from me so often, she's leaving the Senate and running for Governor! (As if that would stop me from letting her know how I feel about things?!?!?!) Anyway, the organization Christians United for Israel has a petition for our government officials letting them know we believe Israel has the right to the land given them by the UN in 1948 (and by Papa 4000 years ago!!!!!), the right to defend themselves from terrorists (yes, I know that word is politically incorrect, but it's the correct word!) and that there's lots of us here in the US (and abroad) that stand with Israel. I would request that you sign the petition also. I know a couple of you got this as an email from me, but hopefully I can help get more names on the petition!!! Papa told us back in Genesis, "those who bless you will be blessed and those who curse you will be cursed." I believe He meant it.....And while I may not agree with all our government is doing, I'd hate for this country to become a spot in oblivion due to poor choices....or curses. Thanks for helping me get the attention of our officials. Here's the link: http://www.cufi.org/site/PageNavigator/Israel_Pledge_EC?s_oo=XMq1IkuOaIgUuHAFq1G45Q..&s_tlid=182142

May each of you be blessed this Shabbat. Shabbat Shalom, Spitfire

The UK media were even quieter - if that is at all possible....

I have already signed that petition. I fear Obama is 100% pro Palestinian and I really don't think anything will change that man's mind. He still claims to be a "life-long" devout Christian, yet he hasn't graced a church since inauguration day, and did make a statement,about two or three weeks ago that he wants to fill more White House positions with Muslims. I also understand that his administration has signed an agreement to sell missals to Saudi Arabia.
