Dear Brother George
I write this to you, not as President of the United States, but as a brother in Christ who happens to hold that office. We are family, joined by our belief in Jesus, therefore we should be able to communicate as such. So, please consider my words, and the Words of our Lord that I offer, knowing this is in no way meant to be sarcastic, disrespectful or hurtful.

In watching your news conference that ended this morning, I realize the terrible strain you must be under. But I pray you draw strength and encouragement from our Lord, as many prayers have been sent to our Heavenly Father for you in His name.

You once said that you didn't believe God had interceded in your dramatic election to place you in office as President. I know He did:

"...For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God." (Romans 13:1b)

As a Christian, you must be aware that all decisions in regard to your office must be in accordance with God's Word in the Holy Bible. King David knew it, and he and Israel were blessed for it. Therefore, when political correctness and diplomacy goes against God's Word, it brings nothing but the Lord's judgement upon a nation:

"And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God." (Revelation 19:15)

Which brings me to my point: Due to most of the international news media's continual negative coverage of the matter, I know you sometimes feel 'between Iraq and a hard place'. And I'm sure you've lost sleep over the never ending conflict between Israel and the Palestinians...or I should say, what's appearing more to be between Israel and the world since anti-Semitism is inching ever forward. You see, dear brother, Israel is the key to every tragic terrorist act that's taking place in the world today. The United States was, and will be again, attacked because of our support of Israel, and we're being attacked in Iraq, again because of our support of Israel. It's time to take a stand, my brother; it's time to draw a line in the sand. Remember, God said to Abraham in regard to Israel:

"And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed." (Genesis 12:3)

"In the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates:" (Genesis 15:18)

"And I will establish my covenant between me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto thee, and to thy seed after thee." (Genesis 17:7)

You see, brother George? That's why there's terrorism in the world; that's why the Muslims want us and the Jews dead. If you will read my previous commentary, A God By Any Other Name, you will see that Allah, the god of Islam, is not the God of the Holy Bible. So, if Allah is not God, then Islam is evil and is taking instruction from an entity that is not holy. If Satan could eliminate the Jewish race and the nation of Israel, he could prove God to be a liar. But, God's covenant with Abraham and his seed, as shown above, was "everlasting"...forever, which means Israel and the Jewish race will always be! Besides, we know God cannot lie because the Apostle Paul wrote under inspiration of the Holy Spirit:

"In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began;" (Titus 1:2)

So, if God lies, dear brother, we have no hope of eternal life through our faith in Jesus. But we know that isn't true...He's God. With that, I have a solution to the entire problem of terrorism, Iraq, and the Israeli/Palestinian conflict. No, it's not diplomatic nor politically correct, as the time for that is past...the time to honor our Father and Lord Jesus Christ is upon us. Here's my suggestion:

Retract the United States participation in the Road Map. To divide Israel is an attempt to negate God's land grant to Abraham. The land will eventually be divided by man, but it will only bring peril:

"I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land." (Joel 3:2)

"Proclaim ye this among the Gentiles; Prepare war, wake up the mighty men, let all the men of war draw near; let them come up: Beat your plowshares into swords, and your pruning hooks into spears: let the weak say, I am strong. Assemble yourselves, and come, all ye heathen, and gather yourselves together round about: thither cause thy mighty ones to come down, O LORD." (Joel 3:9-11)

Recall every soldier home who's now in the military overseas. Not from just Iraq, but from all over the world. Send 100,000 or more of our soldiers to Israel. Expel everyone but Jews from Israel, including the West Bank, Gaza strip and the Golan Heights. Don't worry, the Arabs already have a nation to go to, albeit declared years ago by man, it's called Jordan. Now, working with the Israeli Defense Force, completely encompass the nation of Israel from Egypt to the South, Jordan to the West, and Syria and Lebanon to the North. Our Naval resources, working in conjunction with Israel can patrol the Mediterranean Sea. Our soldiers in Israel could be rotated home every three to six months. Deceptively simple, but problem solved. We would then have American soldiers at home that can assist in Homeland Security, and we have upheld God's requirement to bless Israel if we want to be blessed.

Don't worry about appeasement for goods and services to nations that don't believe in God and our Lord Jesus, for God will take care of us if we trust Him. Jesus told us:

"Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you." (Matthew 6:31-33)

You may not believe that Father had His hand in your election, brother George, but He's placed you where you are for this tragic time in history because of your faith in His Son. You have a marvelous opportunity to show the rest of an unbelieving world the power of Almighty God in action. Jesus is shortly coming for us, dear brother. I hope it is soon. I hope we shall not suffer much longer. I hope...

"Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Savior Jesus Christ;" (Titus 2:13)

May our Lord keep you and our sister Laura safe in the strength of His love, brother George. May He guide and direct you through the Holy Spirit in the performance of your duties. And may He bless the United States of America more than He ever has before.

Your brother in Christ Jesus, and for His sake,
