American Senator explains Israel's rights

"I believe very strongly that we ought to support Israel, and that it has a right to the land, because God said so. In Genesis 13:14-17, the Bible says: "The Lord said to Abram, "Lift up now your eyes, and look from the place where you are northward, southward, eastward and westward: for all the land which you see, to you will I give it, and to your seed forever... Arise, walk through the land in the length of it and in the breadth of it; for I will give it to thee."
That is God talking. The Bible says that Abram removed his tent and came and dwelt in the plain of Mamre, which is in Hebron, and built there an altar before the Lord. Hebron is in the West Bank. It is at this place where God appeared to Abram and said, "I am giving you this land" -- the West Bank. This is not a political battle at all. It is a contest over whether or not the word of God is true."

So that settles it then?

  1. Oh yeah. They wrote what they wanted and now it's become their justification.

    I've said it before but maybe we should all have a go at this.

    In fact we could start a business and people could send us loads of money to sign up for our course by the end of which (we'll say) they'll be able to write their own Bible!

    Why not? Everyone used to do it.
