Trump court journalist David Brody of the Christian Broadcasting Network makes the case for Israel:
Here is Brody’s entire tweet:
Why supporting Israel is America First: 1) Genesis 12:3 explains how God promised Abram a land, a nation, and a blessing. “I will bless those who bless you, and him who dishonors you I will curse, and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.” America is blessed because they have blessed Israel. It’s that simple. Walking away from Israel is walking away from God’s promise. This is a crucial SPIRITUAL element. We discount it at our peril.
2)America and Israel share many of the same enemies especially a Muslim Middle East dominated by the hatred of America and Israel. Remember, you often see violent mobs burning both American and Israeli flags side by side in the Islamic world. We are in this together. Israel is considered, “The Little Satan.” America is, “The Great Satan.”
3) Israel holds up its end of the bargain when it comes to defending itself. In 2020, Israel spent 5.6 percent of its GDP on defense, compared to 2.2 percent in Britain, 2.1 percent in France and 1.4 percent in Germany. Bottom line: Israel does more, and asks less than many other American allies.
4) Israel is a better, more trustworthy, and more useful ally than most of the NATO countries.
5) We need Israel’s democracy in the crazy Muslim hotbed of hatred. Without Israel around, Arab Nations would be warring with each other over the land, leading to a total destabilization of the regime and with that comes a major risk to American National Security and Economic interests. Israel continues to help the United States deal with traditional security threats. Let’s remember: the countries share intelligence on terrorism, nuclear proliferation, etc.
