The U.S. House of Representatives overwhelmingly passed bipartisan legislation that reaffirms and enhances U.S. policy commitments to Israel’s security.
.The United States-Israel Enhanced Security Cooperation Act of 2012, which was sponsored by House Majority Leader Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va.) and House Minority Whip Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-Md.), passed Wednesday by a vote of 411-2. The legislation garnered bipartisan support from 294 co-sponsors prior to passage.
Some provisions appear aimed at assisting Israel particularly in any possible confrontation with Iran. The legislation recommends that the United States provide Israel with “air refueling tankers, missile defense capabilities, and specialized munitions.” Israel has sought an air-refueling capacity as a means to cover the distance to Iran in the case of a strike. “Specialized munitions” could include bunker-busting bombs that could reach redoubts where Iran is suspected of building a nuclear weapon capability.
The US House of Representatives support for Israel is amazing. Despite the the White House hostility towards Jerusalem, a 411-2 vote is a huge shoot in the arm for Benjamin Netanyahu.
Israel will never get a better window to strike the nuclear facilities of Iran. It looks like this is now or never.
Many peoples will come and say, “Come, let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob. He will teach us his ways, so that we may walk in his paths.” The law will go out from Zion, the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
With a new National unity government in place in Israel, a sudden Israeli military strike seems to be in the pipeline. May Jesus give the Israeli leadership the strength and courage to protect the Jewish people and save the whole World from the horror of a nuclear armed Ayatollah.
