British ambassador to Israel Matthew Gould says anyone who cares about Israel, should be concerned about the erosion of international support.
The British ambassador to Israel Matthew Gould said on Thursday that anyone who cares about Israel, should be concerned about the erosion of international support for the country.
Speaking on Channel 10 news on Thursday evening, Gould said,
“Israelis might wake up in 10 years time and find out that suddenly the international community has changed, and that patience for continuing the status quo has reduced.”
“Support for Israel is starting to erode and that’s not about these people on the fringe who are shouting loudly and calling for boycotts and all the rest of it. The interesting category are those members of parliament in the middle, and in that group I see a shift.”
“The problem is not hasbara. The center ground, the majority, the British public may not be expert but they are not stupid and they see a stream of announcement about new building in settlements, they read stories about what’s going on in the West Bank, they read about restrictions in Gaza. The substance of what’s going wrong is really what’s driving this,” he said.
He also said that there is “growing concern” in the U.K. over the lack of progress towards peace with the Palestinians.
Asked about the BBC Olympics website naming Jerusalem as the capital of Palestine on its Olympics website, he said it was not his place to comment on the actions of the organization.
“It would be wrong for me to try and either explain their actions, for that you should speak to the BBC. But what I would say is this, that Israel is now seen as the Goliath and it’s the Palestinians who are seen as the David,” he said.

It should be much more worrisome for men like Matthew Gould, that God of the Bible is loosing His patience with the United Kingdom.
The Bible explains that the fullness of the gentiles might soon have come into the Kingdom of God. Than the age of grace is over. The next age is judgment.
When Jesus the Messiah returns, He will set up His judgment throne in Jerusalem. One of the most foolish things a man can do, it to threaten or curse Israel. Such foolishness will be penalized, and the criminal will face eternity in Hell.
Not so strange. The defamed, bruised and persecuted Israel shall be saved. Those who harm her will face judgement.
And so all Israel will be saved, as it is written: “The deliverer will come from Zion; he will turn godlessness away from Jacob.
Many people who claim such warnings to be non sense will most likely not wake up before it is too late. The return of the Messiah will take them by surprise.
I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.”
It is very sad that a lot of people I hoped will be saved, will not be found inside the Kingdom of Heaven. But what to do?
Man is born with a free will. He is free to reject the truth, and to face the punishment for his won foolishness.
Like Matthew Gould. He need to repent, and embrace the Messiah.
