Excellent, Excellent book! A MUST read! I never realized how much America owes the Jewish nation/people. Very informative! Now when I hear of "disasters" happening in America or around the world, I think, "What have we done to Israel now?" Genesis 12:3 - And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.
This is an excellant history of Israel and America's part that it has played and the consequence, both pro and con. It also gives a comprehesive view of the Jews and the part they played in the forming of our nation. This is the best sweeping overview of modern Israel I have read to date. It also brings in what is more important, that God is involved and will continue to be engaged in the Nation of Israel and the nations as they interact wit them. A must read.
"I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed." Genesis 12:3 is the key verse for this incredibly enlightening book. The author, John McTernan, brilliantly takes current events happening in the United States and correlates them with what is happening in our relationship with Israel.
You do not have to take the authors word for the connection. You will find ample examples of newspaper articles and television reports to support the sometimes eerie correlation. A section on page 188 states, "The connection between the United States government pressuring Israel to destroy twenty-five settlements on the covenant land and Katrina's destruction is obvious."
This is followed with a timeline and list of similarities between the two events. The author presents other examples of our wrongful treatment of Israel. These examples are then matched with different difficulties the United States encountered. Did you know that on March 2, 1997 Arafat met with then President Clinton and the same day awesome tornado storms caused tremendous damage and flooding in five states? This and many more correlation's can be found in this exciting book.
As you read the book you will be begin to pray for America's relationship with Israel knowing that it can affect our life here in the United States. A great book and a must read for anyone interested in history, natural events and the welfare of Israel.
