Tennessee shows Obama how to relate to Israel - it has passed a resolution backing this special state.

Tennessee shows support for Israel Chad Groening - OneNewsNow - 4/1/2010 4:00:00 AM The Tennessee state legislature has passed a resolution supporting the nation of Israel.The vote to update a 2002 resolution that was passed in the wake of 9/11 was overwhelming, calling for solidarity with Israel. The 2010 version was sponsored by State Representative Susan Lynn and was the brainchild of Nashville-based Proclaiming Justice to the Nations (PJTN). That organization's president, Laurie Cardoza-Moore, says showing support for God's chosen people is timely in light of the recent efforts of the Obama administration to browbeat Israel over its decision to move forward with the construction of Jewish settlements in east Jerusalem.

"We did see how the prime minister was snubbed by this administration, which is absolutely outrageous, and it is uncalled for," Cardoza-Moore comments. "And unfortunately, this President Obama is not a friend. Obama won't apply the same pressure that is being applied to the Jewish people, to the Palestinians [or] to Mahmoud Abbas."

The PJTN president recalls that the Bible is very clear about the importance of Israel.

"Israel will be front and center because in Genesis 12:3 the Lord told Abraham, 'I will bless those who bless you and curse those who curse you' -- and if we think that this nation is not going to be cursed because of the stand that we're taking, we are fooling ourselves," she warns. "And that's why we're trying to educate Christians to stand with our Jewish brethren."

Cardoza-Moore says the resolution will now go to the Senate, where it is expected to be voted on the next couple of weeks. She encourages other states to pass similar resolutions and send them to Congress and the president.
 Following Obama's snub of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Gary Bauer -- a staunch supporter of Israel -- said the president's actions affirm that Obama is "the most anti-Israel president" in America's history. (See related article)
