Response to Obama's Speech! Obama in Egypt; Soaring Rhetoric Masks Sad Reality
Richard Hellman, President of CIPAC, the Christian Lobby for Israel now in its 20th year, has analyzed President Obama's Cairo speech today, June 4, and said that, sadly, his "soaring rhetoric masked a sad reality" that includes:
* An Iranian government that is on the verge of achieving nuclear-arms capability to carry out their genocidal threats to eliminate Jewish Israel, a capability and threat that have been confirmed, not removed, by Obama's offers to talk;
*The bold threat to Israel from the Obama team, is that if Israel does not agree to remove almost one half million Jews from most of biblical Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria (so-called "West Bank"), and the Golan Heights, and turn over all of the holy sites to terrorists, the US will not deal with Iran's nuclear weapons - or let Israel do so; and
*The facts that (1) Iran, Syria, Hamas and Hezbollah's leaders, whom Obama hinted he will work with if they are backed in elections, are still terrorists at war with us and Israel,
(2)The PLO run by the Fatah party, that lost the last PA election in 2006, somehow rules the Arab West Bank with US and IDF help is no better, and cannot deliver peace or security to Israel and America.
Therefore CIPAC continues to lead biblically-based Christian opposition to the failed road map, and the two-state vision by barraging Congress and the White House with the message that it is time to change US policy away from "land for peace" and instead to renewed support of Israel as the Jewish state with due protection of its rights of other peoples and religions - just as stated in Israel's Declaration of Independence 61 years ago, when President Harry Truman recognized the newly reborn state.
Richard Hellman and his wife Miriam are leading a solidarity mission to Israel next week to tell Israelis that they enjoy the broad support of over 100 million Americans and no longer need to give away God-given territory for terror, which is all they have received in their "land for peace" agreements to date. The Hellman's also will convey through the media the dangers to Christian and Jewish rights to worship and to visit the traditional biblical sites that the Obama/Saudi "peace plan" poses.
