Mideast ideas irrational


I have been in Israel several times, as I have helped in the leadership of tours to the Holy Land. Thus, I know the land and the people.

President Obama wants Israel to give back land to the Palestinians according to the 1967 boundaries. This is a very “crackpot” bad idea. It is similar to saying that the USA should give back to England the land that they claimed before our War of Independence.

In the Holy Bible we read, “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem …” (Psalm 122:6). While we are doing this we can also pray that this stupid idea would leave the head of President Obama.
