I want to talk to you about evil. It doesn't even exist. Evil. A few weeks ago, the president took [Hezbollah] and Iran off our terror list. Did you know that? Hamas and Iran are off our terror list.
He's negotiating with Iran while at the same time, their supreme leader who came out yesterday, Khamenei said, quote, we will fly the Islamic flag of jihad over the White House. And we are negotiating with them now. The president has spent your tax dollars through the State Department on something called V15 to defeat Benjamin Netanyahu.
Christians are being liquidated, beheaded, and crucified. The children are being sold into slavery, and our big bombing plan to stop ISIS and dismantle them is to find jobs for them or to bomb them seven times a day. Do you know how many bombing raids we ran in Bosnia a day? About 165. We're running seven against ISIS.
Last night, I see a story from Foreign Policy about how the president wasted no time yesterday, he did not congratulate Benjamin Netanyahu, he only congratulated the Israeli people on holding a democratic election. There was no congratulations to Benjamin Netanyahu. Instead, he sends our team to the United Nations. And the United States now said, and I want to quote, the more Israel veers to the right, the more action you will see from us in New York City.
They are now sabotaging Benjamin Netanyahu. We are, in our time - the United States of America, under this administration - now sabotaging Benjamin Netanyahu and the state of Israel and pushing for a UN resolution on a two-state solution. We are on the wrong side. I have suggested in the past that I know this to be true, that Benjamin Netanyahu's speech at Congress was a historic warning. Mark my words. One hundred years, people will look back and say, that was a prophetic warning. He warned us. And read the speech.
You have to see the language that he used. He didn't harp on it. He just made a one-line sentence: I come to you as Mordecai. If you know the Scriptures, you know, if someone comes to you as Mordecai, you are Esther. Esther saved the Jewish people, but more importantly, she saved herself. Mordecai is, the Jewish people will go on, God will find a way, the Jewish people will go on. But, Esther, if you do not stand, you will perish.
I don't know if the president is Haman or the king. But we are Esther, and we as people, as individuals, must stand. Benjamin Netanyahu said, in so many words, Israel will survive, but if we choose not to stand, there is a biblical promise that we will be destroyed. I'm not going to assign a motive to the president's action because it is not about him. This is about us, as individuals and collectively. I believe the Lord keeps his promise. I believe we lose unless we stand. I believe we must be counted, and our voice must be heard.
Hear the words of my mouth: This UN resolution is not in my name. The money used to thwart what I believe is right in Israel is not in my name. When it comes to the Israeli people, when it comes to Jewish people, this administration does not speak for me. Hear the words of my mouth, when it comes to a deal with a homicidal maniac that oppresses the Iranian people, oppresses women, stones homosexuals, I want the world and God himself to know: That is not in my name or in my family's name. We reject those who say, peace, peace, when there is no peace.
Ezekiel refers to those people as false prophets, and he warns us of everything we're now witnessing. He also warned us that the blood of all of those who could have been saved if we as an individual spoke up, if we fail to speak up, the blood of those people's lives are on our hands. Not in my name. Hear the words of my mouth.
Warning. We are on the wrong side. And I will not go over the cliff with the rest of society. My family and I will stand with the Muslims that ISIS kills because they're not Muslim enough. We will stand with the women who are oppressed and beaten and stoned to death. We will stand with the homosexual that is stoned to death. We will stand with the Jew and the Christian and the atheist who will not accept a second-class citizen in exchange for life. All men are created equal and endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The Jewish people have a right to live and live in peace.
This has happened 18 times in the past. It always happens the same way. Eighteen times there has been a Holocaust. No more!
I will not pretend that I do not see. I will not look the other way. I will not keep my mouth shut. I will approach the window and move the curtain and look outside to see what is being done to my neighbors. I am not blind. I see what is happening, and I'm going to be quite frank, and I apologize if this hurts, but so do you.
Count me in. And count my family as one that will stand in the shadow of the righteous among the nations. We will be counted. We will stand. We will be a shelter for those who evil men wish to dehumanize, persecute, or kill. Just because you won't watch the video does not change the reality. The great Jehovah lives. He will not hold us blameless.
We said, never forget. Never again. We are connected now unlike the world has ever been connected. You can see beheadings in realtime. Choose not to watch, but the judgment will not change because the reality doesn't change, unless you stand. Children are being crucified. Not to stand is to stand. Not to speak is to speak. And believe me, there is no place to hide from our shame. We will pray that the mountains will fall on us and cover our sins and shame.
I choose life. I choose God. I choose courage. I choose love. Wake and stand. And for those who refuse to recognize the time that we live in, may God have mercy on your soul.
We are here. We were placed here at this time for a reason. You may not want to believe it, but it will not change the fact, you were born for times such as these. The great people of the past have nothing on us. We were preserved for this time. We each have it in us to be the righteous that we were born to be.
There is faith. There is hope. There is charity. None of those mean anything without the virtue of courage. It is the most rare. It is the most important. Without courage, love means nothing. Faith means nothing. Charity means nothing. Find your courage. If you don't have enough courage yet, take some of mine. Borrow it until you find your own. But stand.
