I don't pretend to understand all the politics of what goes on in Israel, nor do I pass myself off as an authority on every recorded word of God's ancient prophets.  But I understand enough to know that God loves Israel and has a covenant with them that will never end.  He will keep the covenant He has made.  Against all odds, Israel exists, and will remain, because God said "it will be."

If those who have doubts about the truth of the Bible would seriously study the history of Israel with the Bible in hand for reference, I don't see how they could walk away with a lack of better understanding.  The facts are astonishing and I believe God would open understanding for those in search of it because He said those who search for Him with all their heart, they will find Him.  The recorded prophecies of God's word to the Israelites make very clear the plan God had, later fulfilled in the life and ministry of Jesus. And while the focus was on the people of Israel during the few years of Jesus ministry it was certainly the plan that we all inherit, all nations, all who come to that understanding of salvation through Christ.  But it was to Israel first, "God's inheritance" and that blessing also became ours.

God's word is powerful and it is forever.  God will never forget his word.  It is not possible for Him to forget.  Neither will he retract His word, because a covenant is an absolute bond, and I think the world would do well to pay attention to that fact.  We need to be on the side of support of Israel.

 "This is what the Lord says, he who appoints the sun to shine by day, who decrees the moon and stars to shine by night, who stirs up the sea so that its waves roar—the Lord Almighty is his name: 'Only if these decrees vanish from my sight,' declares the Lord, 'will the descendants of Israel ever cease to be a nation before me.'   Jeremiah 31
