Why do all the rules in the Bible get put aside (forbidden pork, lust, occupation, the list could go on forever...) but the issue of Jesus not returning until Israel is a Jewish state is always upheld?
Quote from the article: The e-mailed meeting summary reveals NSC Near East and North African Affairs director Elliott Abrams sitting down with the Apostolic Congress and massaging their theological concerns. Claiming to be "the Christian Voice in the Nation's Capital," the members vociferously oppose the idea of a Palestinian state. They fear an Israeli withdrawal from Gaza might enable just that, and they object on the grounds that all of Old Testament Israel belongs to the Jews. Until Israel is intact and David's temple rebuilt, they believe, Christ won't come back to earth.
If i were those guys, I would prolong the return of Jesus as long as possible since that would mean the Day of Judgment and hell is a little hot this time of year.
Abrams attempted to assuage their concerns by stating that "the Gaza Strip had no significant Biblical influence such as Joseph's tomb or Rachel's tomb and therefore is a piece of land that can be sacrificed for the cause of peace."
Come on.... and Bush and Kerry are both adamently pro-Israel. This is scary stuff.

On a good note, Sistani is requesting Sadr and Co. to leave Karbala. Thank God. I wonder when he was going to speak up. Insh'Allah, they will listen and go.
