Following the unwelcome UN actions, Republican and Democrat lawmakers prepared amendments to the National Defense Authorization bill, now pending in the Senate, to cut off all U.S. financial aid if the Palestinians attempt to “use the United Nations as a club against Israel.”
The Bible clearly promises blessings to the descendants of the Jewish Patriarch Abraham, including that they would be an instrument of blessing to all the families of the earth. Among Abraham’s “Seed” is Jesus of Nazareth, the Jewish Messiah and our Savior! His birth we celebrate this season!
