Rosemary Potter: Obama ‘challenged God’
May 25, 2011
To the editor:
President Barack Obama has just challenged God. He has said that Israel should retreat to the pre-1967 borders, giving away half of Jerusalem and much more.
This would make that tiny nation indefensible.
God said in Genesis 12:1-3 that whoever blesses Israel God will bless, and whoever curses Israel God will curse. Our president is on the wrong side.
America has always been on the side of Israel, the only democracy in the Middle East, and our only reliable ally in the whole region.
Obama is the first president to take a stand with Israel's sworn enemies.

According to The Denver Post, 85 percent of the American people are pro-Israel. President Obama does not speak for us.
Please join me in calling senators Mark Udall at 202-224-5941 and Michael Bennet at 202-224-5852 and Rep. Scott Tipton at 202-225-4761 and tell them to keep our president in line.
He is not King Obama. He is accountable to us through our people in congress.
If they can keep him in line, maybe God won't have to.
