We often sympathize with Israel, so alone in the Middle East among hostile powers. Christians should be glad that Israel was able to defend itself during past aggressions from its neighbors. One of Israel’s past allies was, surprisingly, a Democrat, Jimmy Carter.
During his presidency, one of our satellites detected a nuclear explosion in the Atlantic Ocean, off South Africa, toward Australia. U.S. intelligence determined that the source of the blast was Israel, but the Carter administration was determined to keep it secret. After all, there were several international treaties forbidding such activity. Carter did not want to make Israel an object of recrimination.
Carter was a practicing Christian, although a Democrat (he was before AOC), and valued the Hebrew contribution to Christianity. Let’s hope Iran takes note of this fact.
