Pat Robertson Says America's Middle East Peace Push Is 'Asking For The Wrath Of Almighty God'Is this only an evangelical thing?
Pat Robertson does not think the United States' push for peace in the Middle East is the way to go. He recently said such a move is "asking for the wrath of Almighty God."
God says, "They divided my land ... This is my land. I gave it to Abraham and his descendants, and I don't want it taken away from them." And Jerusalem is the eternal capital of Israel. And for the United States to get into a deal where they're trying to split Jerusalem and take it away from the Israelis and split up their capital -- huge mistake. You're asking for the wrath of Almighty God to fall on this nation. And when it falls, it won't be fun.He called Kerry's diplomacy a "course of folly" that will result in "terrible suffering" for the U.S.
A March CNN-ORC International poll revealed that two-thirds of Americans don't think Israel and its Arab neighbors, including Palestine, will ever find peace. According to the same poll, 46 percent of respondents consider Israel an ally. "There is a large partisan divide in the U.S. over Israel," CNN Polling Director Keating Holland said. "Sixty-three percent of Republicans call Israel an ally of the U.S., compared to only 33 percent of Democrats. A plurality of Democrats think that Israel is friendly to the U.S.; only one in five think it is unfriendly or an enemy."
