Just to take a quick quote from the article about the Reverend Jessie Jackson.
He promised “fundamental changes” in US foreign policy – saying America must “heal wounds” it has caused to other nations, revive its alliances and apologize for the “arrogance of the Bush administration.”
The most important change would occur in the Middle East, where “decades of putting Israel’s interests first” would end.
Jackson believes that, although “Zionists who have controlled American policy for decades” remain strong, they’ll lose a great deal of their clout when Barack Obama enters the White House.
Initially ones reaction might be to think that the “Reverend” Jessie Jackson is just trying to show his support of Senator Obama. However, I have a feeling that this is Jackson’s true belief. I cannot speculate on how he arrives at this anti-semetic conclusion, but I can tell you that he lacks some basic biblical knowledge.
“I will make you into a great nation and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.” (Genesis 12:2-3)
We live a world that is larger that political differences, national pride, or international cooperation, but is defined by spiritual warfare. God has given nations a simple formula for survival, Bless My People. Genesis 12:2-3 should really be our primary international agenda and paradigm.
Reverend Jackson, you invoke power from the most high and have been working to be a difference. However, is it really so easy to forget who gave you this authority, who gave you this direction, and what he commands. I am no biblical scholar, but I see a very clear command.
I don’t know about you, but I think it would make sense for us to follow it.
