Trump Indicates Support for “Five Guiding Principles” for Israel

The International Christian Embassy Jerusalem works diligently to bless and support Israel and the Jewish people, and they exhort Christian the world over to do the same.  Just a couple days ago (11/2/2016), Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump clearly affirmed his support of the five principles:

  1. Recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and move the US Embassy there
  2. Renew the ten-year Memorandum of Understanding between the US and Israel which provides aid in response to Israel’s growing security needs
  3. Oppose the global Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel
  4. Sanction Iran’s relentless actions as the world’s leading sponsor of terror
  5. Reject third party solutions to the Israeli – Palestinian conflict not negotiated by the two parties

I’ll be the first to say that I am not a fan of Donald Trump personally.  Nor am I a fan of Hillary Clinton.  Both are deeply flawed when it comes to “Presidential material.”  However, praise God for at least one candidate willing to take a stand with Israel.  (Hillary Clinton, the Democratic candidate, has not responded to the request.)
