Old Testament on Foreign Policy
He went on to speak of the West Bank and Gaza, and insisted that Israel must never yield this "promised land" to Palestinians. Why? "Because God said so," Senator Inhofe declared. "In Genesis, the Bible says: 'The Lord said to Abram, "Lift up now your eyes for all the land which you see, to you will I give it, and to your seed forever."
"This is God talking," the senator said. "This is not a political battle at all. It is a contest over whether or not the Word of God is true." Senator Inhofe believes the Palestinians have no claim to the West Bank and Gaza. Certainly some Christians who read the Bible as literally as Jim Inhofe believe God would be pleased to see Israel negotiate with its Palestinian brothers and sisters and share the Promised Land.
