Some say that Israel has no right to they land they are on now, which was given back to them by Great Britain following World War 2. But what those people miss is the fact that God Himself gave Israel to Abram and his descendants in a permanent covenant. This covenant is clearly described in the Bible beginning with Genesis 13:12.
12Abram settled in the land of Canaan, while Lot settled in the cities of the valley, and moved his tents as far as Sodom.
14The Lord said to Abram, after Lot had separated from him, "Now lift up your eyes and look from the place where you are, northward and southward and eastward and westward; 15for all the land which you see, I will give it to you and to your descendants forever. 16"I will make your descendants as the dust of the earth, so that if anyone can number the dust of the earth, then your descendants can also be numbered. 17"Arise, walk about the land through its length and breadth; for I will give it to you."
In Exodus the Lord cast out the people of Israel and scattered them to the nations of the world because of their wicked ways. But in Chapter 36 the Bible says God brought them back into their land and vindicated His holy name.
"27And I will put my Spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes and be careful to obey my rules. 28You shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers, and you shall be my people, and I will be your God."
In the early 7th century Muslims began invading and conquering Israel, once again scattering many Jews to other lands. The Crusades, in contrast to the intentionally misleading information President Obama put out last week, were initiated to take the Holy Land back from Islam so Jews and Christians could once again dwell in their promised land.
"You shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers..." That's pretty clear. In Genesis God said "I will give it to you (the land of Canaan and all around) and to your descendants forever." There's nothing anywhere in the Bible that says "You shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers until the Palestinians make a claim on a part of it - then you must give it up to them." Nor does it say "You shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers until future world leaders tell you that My covenant with you is no longer valid."
God's covenant with the Israeli people is forever. The land of Canaan as defined in Exodus includes nearly all of modern day Israel including Gaza and the West Bank. Clearly Jerusalem and the Temple Mount belong to Israel, regardless of what the Palestinians claim.
President Obama professes to be a Christian. Perhaps, before he tells Israel what they need to do, he might want to consult the Bible and read God's covenant to Israel concerning their homeland, then proceed accordingly. God's covenants always trump the wishes of politicians and human world leaders - particularly despotic leaders who misuse the Bible and twist Christianity for evil purposes.
