Letters on Jerusalem, Dreamers

Not buying it

My, how the babies cry, whine, faunch and bellow.

They don't like President Trump recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital city? So what? President Trump confirmed what God did in 1 Kings 9:3. God placed his name in Jerusalem forever.

Jesus will rule and reign for 1,000 years from Jerusalem.

There are no "Palestinians." There is no such group. Those people are Arabs.

When the Romans invaded Israel in 70 A.D., they scattered the Jewish people all over the earth. To add insult to injury, they renamed Israel "Philistia," the name of one of Israel's ancient enemies.

Somehow, "Philistia" became "Palestine." "Palestine" means "land of sand."

Israel has always been Israel, except when it was "Jacob," before God renamed it. Israel will always be a nation (Genesis 17:7-8).

I'm not buying someone's vilification of Israel. The Israelites have as much right to defend themselves when attacked as you or I. The liberal press lies when it vilifies Israel. Members of the liberal press who are working for Satan have a choice: salvation through Jesus Christ or eternal damnation in hell.

Dump the petitions

Many people from other countries want to immigrate to America. We have laws as to how many and from where. These laws have been repeatedly ignored. It's long past time they be rigorously enforced and all of these illegals be sent to their own country. The only ones who should be here have a visa, a work permit or are in the naturalization process of becoming a citizen of this country.

So what have these Dreamers been doing since they've been here? Have they made applications and attempts to be a citizen? They have lots of supporters with their petitions for you to stay. Have you been helping the Dreamers in the citizenship process?

No, and I'll tell you what you have been doing. You've been enjoying the good life and free stuff on welfare, food stamps and other programs. It has changed from the "Land of the Free" to the "Land of the Free Stuff." All of this are compliments of the U.S. taxpayer. Many of you supporters need to take a house full of these Dreamers home with you to feed and support with your own money.

I understand what "illegal" means but there are some who appear too illiterate to know. I'm with you, Congressman Gohmert, to send these illegals home where they can help to make their own country great again.

As far as the petitions go, dump them in a recycle bin.
