Israel and the U.S.-- problems, problems

I usually follow anything that is happening in the Middle East, more especially in Israel, because it actually is the Center of the Earth in a manner of speaking. God designed it that way when He blessed Abraham, and made Israel and all his progeny the Chosen People.

Now Joe Biden has come down with foot-in-mouth disease again, although it probably isn't his fault this time, bless his heart.

But let's put this into perspective. Pres. Obama has been showing more patience with Iran than I believe is safe. He's been saying, "Let's sit down and talk about it." After all they have all the makings for the nuclear bomb--the same thing that flattened two huge Japanese cities and ended WW2. Iran is not known for its diplomacy or for its calm dealings within the region, plus Ahmadinejad recently accused the U.S. of playing a "double game" in the war against terror in Afghanistan. 

But toward the one democratic nation in all of the Middle East, Biden "goes ballistic" at Israel for starting a housing project in a region that was never on the bargaining table with the Palestinians anyway. Here's a quote from One News Now...

Gary Bauer, president of American Values and chairman of the Campaign for Working Families, recently returned from a trip to Israel that happened to coincide with the Vice President's visit. He reports that the neighborhood in question had never been on the negotiating table.
"The Palestinians have never demanded that it be given up," he comments. "What we're seeing here is that Iran is building nuclear weapons and the administration has infinite patience. Israel tries to build homes for its citizens, and the Obama administration goes ballistic."

Of course there won't be any true peace in the Middle East until Jesus comes again. However, there isn't any need to antagonize our one solid friend there, especially when God has promised to bless every nation that befriends Israel. This is not shaping up to be a pretty picture.
