Improving but Sore
Elizabethe is improving but sore. She is resting most of the day. I have errands to run, but she’s chosen to stay put in bed.
I’m absolutely shocked at the negative press regarding President Trump’s announcement to acknowledge Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. I like what their prime minister said, “It’s been Israel’s capital for over 3,000 years.”
People can be so stupid. Yes, I said it. They can be stupid.
One woman in an asian country was on the news yelling, “This is wrong. Jerusalem is the capital of Palestine.” Has someone told her that Palestine doesn’t exist as a country?
People need to understand. The people who call themselves Palestinian will not be happy as long as Israel exists. It’s been an all-or-nothing for them ever since I can remember. I thought it would all die when Yasser Arafat died, but I was wrong about that.
I find it very ironic they are only pressuring Israel, and not Jordan, Syria, or other Arab nations from which they are from to form a geographic Palestinian state. But, it’s all about Israel and the Jews.
They are a feuding people. My entire life I’ve read about wars and contentions in the middle east. They are mostly religious in nature, and it’s not worth getting in to which religion(s), because in many cases, they are feuds between different factions of one of those religions.
We know from prophecies in the Bible the middle east will be the background for a big war before the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. Part of me wants to cheer, “Bring it on,” in hopes it means the Second Coming is sooner that we think. Yet, the other part of me says nobody likes people dying because of war.
Elizabethe and I have been watching Smallville for entertainment. There sure are a lot of references comparing Clark Kent to Jesus Christ. At first I thought it was just me. Then, they became so blatant I realize it’s been done on purpose.
I’m not sure what I think about that.
