In a special news conference on Saturday, 6 April 2002/24 Nisan 5762, US President Bush, together with Tony Blair, the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, in what sounded more like an order, stated that Israel should immediately stop the offensive against Arafat and his terrorists and withdraw her forces from the Biblical cities in Judea and Samaria. These areas are now occupied by the "Palestinian" Authority. Bush also re-stated his vision of a "Palestinian" state established in Judea, Samaria, and Gaza. His statement was confirmed by Tony Blair. Bush stated that he would be sending his Secretary of State, Colin Powell, to the region to bring about a cease-fire. On the following day Bush's Security Adviser, Condoleeza Rice, in the very strong tones of an order, also called on Israel to immediately, without delay, stop the offensive against Arafat's terrorists and withdraw her forces. All of this before Israel has reached the goal of this offensive: to destroy all the bases of the terrorists from all kinds of organizations under the leadership of Arafat.
Israel was also been called on to immediately stop all settlement activity in Judea, Samaria, and Gaza — the major Biblical areas of the land of Israel — and to start negotiations with the so-called "Palestinian" Authority for a peace agreement based on the founding of a "Palestinian" state in the holy areas of Israel. Before this, Israel had been called on by the American Administration, as well as the European Union, not to harm the arch-terrorist Arafat, and not to expel him from the land. These statements/demands were followed by very strong pressure on Ariel Sharon coming from all over the world.
The answer of Prime Minister Sharon was, thanks to G–d, that Israel will continue the offensive until her goal is achieved: the destruction of all the bases of the terrorists and murderers. He stated that he does accept these demands and that although there is a disagreement it is only a disagreement between friends.
The reply of The Temple Mount and Land of Israel Faithful Movement and the people of Israel to President Bush is that we only obey the G–d of Israel Who gave the land of Israel to His chosen people, Israel, in an eternal covenant. Only G–d is the owner of all the universe and only He can give any land that He wants to whomever He decides to give it. The only nation in the world that ever had a land given to it directly by G–d Himself in an eternal covenant, written and signed by the Hand of G–d Himself, is the people of Israel. All other countries in the world control their land by right of conquest. More than 4,000 years ago G–d made a covenant with Abraham, the father of the Israeli nation and with his seed. "After these things the word of the L-rd came to Abram in a vision, saying, 'Fear not, Abram; I am your shield, and your reward will be great....' In the same day the L-rd made a covenant with Abram, saying, 'To your seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the river Euphrates; ... And I will establish my covenant between me and you and your seed after you in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a G-d to you, and to your seed after you. And I will give to you, and to your seed after you, the land where you are a stranger, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their G-d.'" (Genesis 15:1,18;17:7,8)
Our message to President Bush is: "Your 'vision' for the founding of a 'Palestinian' state is not acceptable to G–d. Despite that, as the president of the largest physical power of our time, you feel that you are the only leader in the world; there is only one leader of all the world and that is G–d Himself. You should learn from history about the leaders of major empires who felt that they were the leaders of the world and tried to challenge or fight against the decisions of G–d. This was the experience of the Assyrian king, Sennacherib, who felt that he was the only ruler in the world at the time of King Hezekiah and came to take the land of Israel from the people of G–d. G–d showed him very clearly that there is no meaning to physical power; it exists today and tomorrow passes away."
"And Hezekiah prayed before the L-rd, and said, 'O L-rd G-d of Israel, who dwells between the cherubim, you are the G-d, you alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth; you have made heaven and earth....' Then Isaiah the son of Amoz sent to Hezekiah, saying, 'Thus said the L-rd G-d of Israel, "That which you have prayed to me against Sennacherib king of Assyria I have heard. This is the word that the L-rd has spoken concerning him; 'The virgin daughter of Zion despises you, and laughs at you with scorn; the daughter of Jerusalem has shaken her head at you. Whom have you taunted and blasphemed? and against whom have you exalted your voice, and lifted up your eyes on high? Against the Holy One of Israel. By your messengers you have taunted the L-rd, and have said, "With the multitude of my chariots I have come up to the height of the mountains, to the sides of Lebanon, and will cut down their tall cedar trees, and their choice cypresses; and I will enter into its farthest lodges, and into the forest of his Carmel. I have dug and drunk strange waters, and with the sole of my feet have I dried up all the canals of Mazor." Have you not heard long ago how I have done it, and of ancient times that I have formed it? Now have I brought it to pass, that fortified cities should be laid waste into ruinous heaps. Therefore their inhabitants were of small power, they were dismayed and confounded; they were as the grass of the field, and as the green herb, as the grass on the house tops, and as grain blasted before it has grown up. But I know your abode, and your going out, and your coming in, and your rage against me. Because your rage against me and your arrogance has come into my ears, therefore I will put my hook in your nose, and my bridle in your lips, and I will turn you back by the way by which you came....' Therefore thus said the L-rd concerning the king of Assyria, 'He shall not come to this city, nor shoot an arrow there, nor come before it with shield, nor cast up a mound against it. By the way that he came, by the same shall he return, and shall not come into this city, said the L-rd. For I will defend this city, to save it, for my own sake, and for my servant David's sake.' And it came to pass that night, that the angel of the L-rd went out, and struck in the camp of the Assyrians a hundred and eighty five thousand; and when they arose early in the morning, behold, they were all dead corpses. And Sennacherib king of Assyria departed, and went and returned, and lived in Nineveh."'" (2 Kings 19:15,20-28,32-36; see also Isaiah 37)
The Temple Mount and Land of Israel Faithful Movement says today in the name of the Almighty G–d of Israel that no one is allowed to take any part of the land of Israel and to plant there a foreign "Palestinian" state of terror and murder. This desecrates the land of G–d. The founding of the United States of America more that 200 years was no accident; it was a creation of G–d to stand with Israel in the end-times. It is no accident that the founders of the United States based its constitution on the principles of the Torah and the Bible. President Bush had the privilege of being elected at a very special and critical time in the history of mankind. He started out his presidency with clear support for Israel. Now he has decided to change his policy towards Israel due to a materialistic interest in Middle Eastern oil. He has come under the pressure of the Arab enemies of Israel and the anti-Semitic European Union. He has missed the great opportunity which G–d gave him. He will lose the opportunity to be a great president of the United States if he continues this anti-G-d/anti-Israel policy. In any case, there is no chance that a "Palestinian" state will be established in the holy land of the G–d and people of Israel. G–d will not allow it. The war which is currently taking place in Israel shows this very clearly.
The Temple Mount Faithful Movement prays that Prime Minister Sharon will have G–d's spirit and the wisdom to not fear the many enemies of Israel. We pray that he will withstand the pressure from all over the world, and the anti-Israeli and anti-Semitic spirit which follows it. We pray for him to not even fear the pressure of the President of the United States but to trust in G–d. We pray that he will understand that as long as he fights against the enemies of the G–d of Israel and destroys the bases of the terrorists and murderers of Yasser Arafat, he will be obedient to G–d and G–d will be with him. Ariel Sharon should know that he was sent by G–d to Judea, Samaria, and Gaza to save them from the terrorists and evildoers; to make these areas once again the main Biblical parts of the State of Israel. We want to say to all the nations who stand against Israel — and there are many — that you will not succeed in your battle against the G–d and people of Israel. You have no chance of taking away the land which G–d gave to them in an eternal covenant. This land has a major part to play in G–d's end-time plans to redeem Israel and all the world. The destiny of this land is deeply connected to the G–d and people of Israel and there is no power in the world which can change this G-dly fact.
In the Name of the G–d of Israel we first want to advise the President of the United States to withdraw from his anti-G-d/anti-Israel policy of trying to save the murderer, Yasser Arafat, and all the terrorists in Judea, Samaria, and Gaza. We advise him not to try to create a "Palestinian" state in the midst of the land of the G–d of Israel. This will be a great evil in the eyes of G–d for G-d will judge him as He judged all those who previously have tried to plant a foreign state there. The US president must not join the enemies of Israel who are now putting pressure on him. He must not join the European Union who is pushing him to fight against the G–d and people of Israel. He must not become a part of the end-time war against Israel whose participants will all be severely judged by G–d. The end-time battle against Jerusalem and Israel has already started and the G–d and people of Israel will win the battle exactly as G–d promised. (Zechariah 12,14; Ezekiel 38,39; Obadiah)
Secondly, we want to call on the American people who for many years have been faithful friends of Israel. We ask them to call on their president to immediately change his policy towards Israel. We call on them to humbly learn the Word of G–d and His promises to Israel. We warn them not to be a party of the hypocrisy and evil aggression which is coming against Israel but to stand strongly with the G–d of Israel and His people at this critical time. The destiny of the United States is connected to the destiny of Israel and President Bush cannot run away from this.
The spirit of the people of Israel is strong with the G–d of Israel at this critical time of violence against them which comes from all over the world. The Almighty G–d of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob is in the midst of the camp of the Israeli army and in the midst of the people and land of Israel. His promises to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob and to their seed are eternal and are coming to pass at this critical time of redemption. Together with our beloved G–d we shall win this end-time battle and we shall carry and share His Word and light to all the nations. More than at any time in the past, Israel is ready to fulfill their task to be "a holy nation, a kingdom of priests and a treasure among the nations". We are living in G–d's timing. Soon the house of G–d will be rebuilt on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem and Mashiach ben David will come. Everyone in the world is called on to be a part of these great G-dly events, especially at this time of testing for the world, and to be in the camp of G–d and not in the camp of evil.
