(I have had several Christian "leaders" tell me that they would not declare this because it would scare the people. I also think that some are afraid because they would lose supporters.)
In supporting Abbas, Bush not only supports terrorism, he is also in violation of his own presidential directives in relation to the U.S. State Department. A sub-group of Fatah is the al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, a group which is designated as a terrorist organization by Bush's presidential directive and is on the U.S. State Department list of foreign terrorist organizations, a list which the Bush administration itself has helped to put together. The al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades are responsible for many terrorist attacks, several involving U.S. citizens. However, Bush tends to look the other way in these matters because these groups will help him fulfill his demonic vision: the division of Israel in order to create a country for a group of people who don't exist (i.e., the "Palestinians").
Bush has been withholding a portion of U.S. funds from the PA because, in a democratically-held election, the Hamas terrorist organization beat out the Fatah terrorist organization, to control the Palestinian Authority. (Hamas is deemed to be more evil than Fatah, according to the United States government, even though both organizations have murdered U.S. citizens.) So, because he didn't like the outcome, Bush chose to ignore it (just as he did when he was defeated in the 2000 presidential election). So, over the past year, Bush has used trickery and deceit in order to provide a portion of funds to his friend, terrorist leader Mahmoud Abbas.
Now, after a war with Hamas (which Hamas clearly won, despite the U.S. providing arms and military training to Fatah), Abbas staged a coup and dissolved the democratically-elected government, which included Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh as its Prime Minister. Now, all of the nations of the world are rejoicing and hurrying to get in line to send money to Abbas, and Bush is right at the front of the line. This from a man who, through the creation of a non-existent, nebulus war, has declared that he will fight terrorism to the ends of the earth.
It is now being said that one of the reasons that Fatah is not as bad as Hamas is because it recognizes Israel. This is a lie told by Yasir Arafat back in 1993 and has continued to this day. It has been proven again and again that neither the Palestinian Authority, nor Abbas, nor Fatah, nor the PLO recognize Israel's right to exist. The PLO charter itself — which has never been changed — states that one of the main goals of the organization is the elimination of the nation of Israel. The Oslo Accords were signed with the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO), not Fatah, which is a part of the PLO.
The time has come for those who declare that they support Israel to stand against these lies. For Christians, they must realize that Bush is not himself a Christian, nor does he support Israel. They must decide if they are willing to support God and His people or the United States. For Jews, they must realize that the United States is not their friend. While there may have been congressmen and senators that over the years professed to support Israel, the alliance from the government as a whole has always been to the benefit of the U.S. If, as we see now, Israel's alliance is no longer needed, then the U.S. will "abandon" her. Bill Clinton tried to put Israel and her enemies together to obtain "peace"; George W. Bush has pushed Israel and her enemies together to obtain "peace"; what do you think the next President (Democrat or Republican, it doesn't matter) will do? The U.S. is getting tired and more pushy. It won't be long until demands are made. (Please, I am not talking about the average citizen, although it may apply in many cases. I am speaking of the U.S. as an entity of a nation.)
But this is not a bad thing. It's time to look to the Lord, the the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob for support. It is time for Israel to stop trying to be like all the other nations. There are many in Israel, I know because many of them are my friends, that do not want to belike all the other nations. They want to be the people of God, and they know that means they must give alligence to Him and Him alone. Scripture clearly states that it was the people who wanted a king, so they could be like all the other nations. It was not God's idea. Let us look to the heavens, from where our redemption will come from, not some man or some nation. Am Yisrael Chai!
