Mediterranean Update Tuesday: Mitt in Jerusalem

"And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed."  Genesis 12:3

There's been a lot of phony outrage over Mitt's visit to Jerusalem.  I want to focus on a different aspect.  Mitt's declaration that Jerusalem is "the capital of Israel" is tangible proof of America returning to God.

Isiah 24:23 says "Then the moon shall be confounded, and the sun ashamed, when the Lord of hosts shall reign mount Zion, and in Jerusalem, and before the ancients gloriously."  The United Nations says "Jerusalem must be the capital of both Israel and Palestine."  Obviously, Mitt stands much closer to the former than the latter.

I've written recently about the importance of returning to God.  While most of Mitt's speech dealt with issues of earthly geopolitics, the line about Jerusalem demonstrates a grounding in deeper truths.  Mitt clearly understands who the good guys are and the bad guys are,  he said America and Israel: "provoke the same hatreds in the same enemies of civilization."  On the other hand, Barack Obama's record (yet again) speaks for itself.  If you believe in a Higher Power than any earthly institution, well, do I even need to say it?!?
