An enemy of Israel is an enemy of God. I am so glad we have a president who supports the holy land. Nations come and go but, but God is ever the same. His people are not forsaken.
On Wednesday, President Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capitol, and ordered the U.S. embassy be moved there.

Not long after, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu delivered a heartfelt, humbled statement full of gratitude and thanks to President Trump for doing what no president before would.
“Thank you President Trump for today’s historic decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. The Jewish people and the Jewish state will be forever grateful,” Netanyahu said.
He said that Trump’s actions are “courageous and just.” He also added that despite the worry, there will be absolutely “no change whatsoever to the status quo.”
People of all faiths will still be free to worship at the city’s holy sites.
The decision, which was promised by Trump during his campaign, means the United States embassy will be moved from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas warned against the move, saying it could inflame tensions in the region and harm the peace process.
Palestinian terror group Hamas called for a “day of rage” Friday, urging Palestinians to protest and warning that Trump’s pronouncement would cross a “red line.”
