Dear President Trump

Dear President Trump,

Thank you for being a true friend to Israel. But, please, honored President, BEWARE! Perhaps people gave you wrong advice in formulating your peace plan. The Almighty gave all of the Land of Israel to the Jews at an eternal inheritance. Judea and Samaria is the Biblical heartland of the Promised Land. You are right to favor Israeli sovereignty over the the territory where Jewish settlements have been established. But that isn’t enough. God gave all of the Holy Land to the Jews. Your plan to create a State of Palestine in the center of Israel is a terrible mistake. Don’t you understand? God gave Israel to the Children of Israel. Do you plan to take a huge chunk of the Holy Land and give it to a sworn enemy of Israel? Do you realize what the consequences would be for you and America if you challenge the will of the Almighty and rob His People of their God-given Homeland??? For the sake of America – STOP before it is too late. Surely, someone gave you misleading advice. Fundamentalist Christians all understand the necessity for the Jews to rule over all of Israel for the benefit of mankind. Ask them. They are your trustworthy supporters. Don’t follow the advice of people in the White House and State Department, whether they be Jews or non-Jews, who are motivated by their own personal goals, and who do not set Jerusalem above their highest joy. Sovereignty, yes. A State of Palestine, no. Not in Israel. In Jordan, in Saudi Arabia, in Texas if you like, but, for the sake of God, and for the sake of America, not in the Land of Israel. As King David teaches in Palm 122:

A Song of degrees of David:
I was glad when they said unto me:
‘Let us go unto the House of the Lord’.

O Jerusalem, built as a city that is united together;

For there the tribes went up, the tribes of the Lord,
as a testimony of Israel,

to give thanks unto the name of the Lord.

For there are set thrones of judgement,
the thrones of the house of David.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:

they that love thee shall prosper.

Peace be within thy walls, and prosperity within thy palaces.

For my brethren and companions’ sake, I will say now,
peace be within thee.

For the sake of the House of the Lord our God I will seek thy good.

Please, Mr. President. While the Corona plague still ravishes your great and noble country, think twice. Read your Bible. Think again. If you want true advice, ask the Chief Rabbis in Israel. And may the Lord God of Israel grant you the wisdom to act in the name of true peace and leave the Land of Israel to the Children of Israel alone.
