Israel Prime Minister Naftali Bennett said it’s not the shared moral and democratic values that bind America and the Jewish state in everlasting friendship. It’s the Bible.
Speaking at the US Embassy in Jerusalem on the occasion of America’s 245th Independence Day on 4 July, Bennett stated:
Naftali Bennett was born in Israel, but both of his parents had made Aliyah from the US, and the prime minister spent a goodly portion of his childhood in America and Canada.
Like Benjamin Netanyahu before him, not only is Bennett fully fluent in English, he has a deep understanding of and appreciation for the United States.
While we welcome his reference to the Bible, we have to acknowledge that both the USA and Israel are far from living up to the moral and spiritual values that inspired the Hebrew prophets. For this reason that bond that he speaks of may not be unbreakable after all.
God is calling both Israel and the USA to repentance and faith in His Word and in Yeshua the Messiah in the days before His return.
