Daring God to do something
The bible WARNS us that, in the end of time, forces come against the Jews and against Israel, with the sole purpose of dividing it for gain. And while all of us have had our eyes on the Muslim in the Oval Office, now it seems that Mitt Romney is interested in helping to fulfill the third chapter of the book of Joel:
“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
In case you didn’t know it, parting the land of Israel is, in God’s eyes, a declaration of WAR. Good luck with that, Mitt. Better wear extra magic underwear…
WASHINGTON (JTA) – The Republican Party’s platform is expected to include support for a two-state solution in the Middle East.
The platform committee, meeting in Tampa, Fla., on Tuesday, rejected three amendments that would have removed language supportive of a two-state solution, according to a delegate who put forward two of the amendments.
A vote before the full Republican Convention in Tampa is expected next week.
The proposed language as it now stands, written by the Romney campaign and committee aides, states, “We envision two democratic states,” according to BuzzFeed, the political news site that first reported on the amendments.

Three amendments were offered but not adopted following objections from a Romney surrogate, Sen. Jim Talent (R-Mo.). Two of those amendments were put forth by delegate Kevin Erickson, pastor at Cross Hill Church in Virginia, Minn., who wanted to replace the two-state language with tough language on terrorism, BuzzFeed reported.
A former public defender, Erickson told JTA that Israel “is not one of my primary issues.”
He said he was intrigued after listening to a “pretty vigorous” discussion about a two-state solution that ended in “such a close vote.” He proposed alternatives that he said were aimed at satisfying both sides, but these were also defeated. J Street, a liberal pro-Israel group, welcomed the result.
“That such amendments could garner even a modicum of support demonstrates the very real threat to longstanding bipartisan support for the two-state resolution as a central feature of America’s unwavering commitment to Israel’s survival and security as the democratic homeland of the Jewish people,” it said in a statement. source – Times of Israel
From the Washington Post: TAMPA — The Republican party platform will continue to endorse a two-state solution as the path to peace between Israel and its Palestinian neighbors, at the urging of a top Mitt Romney adviser.
