Malcom Hedding, the executive director of ICEJ, said about Pat, "He has a lifetime of engagement with Israel, Israel's prime ministers, but more than that, he's used CBN, he's used the tools that God has given him to bless Israel, to tell Israel's story and to gather worldwide Christian support for this people and this nation."
It's important for Christians like Pat and those of the ICEJ to give blind support to the Jewish state of Israel because they believe what the ancient Jews/Hebrews wrote in the Old Testament/Hebrew Bible which threatens Gentiles who do not support Israel with destruction from God. Those Bible writers were experts at psychological warfare. And non-thinkers like Pat Robertson are foolish enough to swallow it hook, line and sinker!
Back in February 2009, Pat said that the end of the world will come via the Battle of Armageddon if Israel is forced to allow East Jerusalem to remain in Palestinian hands. (Pat's a big promoter of the nonsensical Book of Revelation. The Deist Thomas Jefferson said the Book of Revelation is "merely the ravings of a maniac.") He also revealed that Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu made clear Israel wants and will have all of Jerusalem. Israel is busy stealing homes from Palestinians and giving them to Jews in an ethnic cleansing move.
Not only does Israel want all of Jerusalem, it wants the West Bank, too. Their official sanction of more Israeli settlements on Palestinian lands in the West Bank is sinking the peace talks. Even though the U.S. has the leverage to force Israel back to its pre-1967 borders by withholding the $3 BILLION U.S. politicians take from American tax payers and give to the Jewish state every year, the politicians will not use this leverage which only they have. Instead the bloody and misery producing status quo of Israel overall will remain.
