The U.S. ambassador to Israel said this week that Israel is “on the side of God.”
Ambassador David M. Friedman was speaking at an evangelical group event that marked the anniversary of Jerusalem becoming a U.S. embassy. He told attendees that the relationship between the U.S. and Israel was getting “stronger and stronger and stronger.”
“And the second (reason) is that Israel has one secret weapon that not too many countries have,” he said. “Israel is on the side of God, and we don’t underestimate that.”
With Friedman as ambassador, the Trump administration has made several moves that some have said are too partial to Israel, such as moving the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Also, the U.S. has made significant cuts to aid for the Palestinians.
Palestinians and Palestinian supporters say they are worried that Friedman is representing Israel’s right-wing policy more than the U.S.
“As the ambassador of the far-right Orthodox Jewish community in the United States, Friedman’s comment makes sense,” said Daniel C. Kurtzer, who was Washington’s ambassador in Israel under both Republican and Democratic presidents. “As the supposed ambassador of the United States government and all its people, it is an extremely inappropriate comment.”
Others, such as Saeb Erekat, of the Palestine Liberation Organization, said Friedman…
WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
