    Dear Prime Minister, Ecclesiastes says: Wisdom is better than weapons of war. You are not following your own scriptures. You need to face some startling but true facts. Fact 1: This is not 1250 BC where God led the Israelites out of Egypt and gave them the land you now occupy. In the last century, Israel slowly stole the State of Israel from its rightful owners, the Palestinians. There is nothing to suggest that God intended for this to happen. He took the land from Israel because it repeatedly for centuries abandoned His law and killed his prophets. Fact 2: You could end the conflict if you made significant restitution to the Palestinians and joined in the creation of a Palestinian state. Jerusalem should become an international sovereign city-state, governed by the UN. It is not your city. It is the holy city of the entire world, holy to us Christians and to Muslims also. Fact 3: Americans do NOT want to go to war over Israel. We go to war to serve our own interests, just as Israel and every other country does. We are not going to send American boys, or risk nuclear war with Russia and China and Pakistan to save Israel. Israel would not do it for us, and we will not do it for Israel. Wisdom is better than weapons of war. When will Israel believe the words of its God and follow them?
