Via NorthJersey.com: Democrats have dropped from their platform recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, a move that has opened President Barack Obama to criticism from Republican rival Mitt Romney.
Romney called the change a “shameful refusal to acknowledge that Jerusalem is Israel’s capital”. He accused Obama of distancing the U.S. from its ally Israel.
Four years ago Democrats stated unequivocally that “Jerusalem is and will remain the capital of Israel”.
Israelis and Palestinians both claim the city as their capital.
Democratic spokeswoman Melanie Roussell defended the change.
She says the Obama administration is taking the same Jerusalem policy as every Republican and Democratic administration since 1967, while seeking resolution in a two-state peace agreement.
The Republican platform crafted last week envisioned two states, including Israel with Jerusalem as its capital.
It is clair the region in the future will comprise two states: greater Israel with its biblical borders, and Greece with its historic eastern part.
Constantinople is the Capital of the Church and what the New Testament calls the “Camp of the Saints” – while Jerusalem is the Capital of Israel, the “Beloved City”, according to the book of Revelation 20:9.
There is no difference between Greeks and Jews, according to Romans 10:12.
The world abides forever – according to Ecclesiastes 1:4 and Ephesians 3:21 – so there is of course nu hurry for changes in God’s timetable.
According to Revelation 2:10 the whole process will take 8.000 years.
“And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament”, Revelation 11:19.
