Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert Asks Netanyahu To Call For A Day of 'Prayer and Fasting' To Protect Israel
Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert is a long time friend of Israel and the Jewish people. Here he relates while speaking at the South Carolina Tea Party Convention how he asked Israeli PM Benyamin Netanyahu to call for a national day of prayer and fasting to protect Israel.
Gohmert told the audience that he told Netanyahu that the United States was pushing Israel “into a corner,” (referring to the Obama Administration's pressure for concessions to Abbas and the Palestinians) and warned Israel was going to see “a couple of crises this year.”
Gohmert said he told Netanyahu that he should call for nationwide prayers.
“And I know you’ve got secularists, and I called off a couple, that you have to deal with here and tell them this is not for you, it is only for people who believe, but I’m declaring a national day of prayer and fasting in this crisis for G-d’s direction and protection, and for all of those who believe,” he explained. “And I said, I promise you God will answer that prayer, the secularists will hear, the world will see, and even people in the United States will see, and Israel will be blessed because of you doing that.”
I agree with him, and I hope Netanyahu follows his advice.
