List Jerusalem as a virgin for being declared as Israel’s capital by a corrupt Gentile head of state. List Israel as the witting pawn of another superpower. List the role of the United States as powerbroker in the peace and security of the Levant as effectively finished. The vast majority of Israel’s kings were bad actors for rejecting the instructions and mercies of Israel’s rightful monarch, and there can come no good of an alliance that recognizes the proclamations of the king of crap.
Jerusalem is not looking for a king and has political parties like the nations. The ruins of Israel’s heritage tell us that Jerusalem needs a course correction. Israel’s greatest and most loved king bought a threshing floor from a Jebusite to be the site of the temple. The southern portion of this same tract of land is Zion proper and it is there we find the royal palaces and royal tombs. The two locations are distinguished by name and content: Jerusalem with the temple and Zion with the palace.
A place for all to worship and live
The idea that the interests of Israeli citizens are advanced by a United States president whose trademarks are bigotry and xenophobia is all landfill material. Israeli citizens cannot decide the fate of Jerusalem because the pride of being chosen and circumcised cannot be reconciled with the manifest destiny of Jerusalem
King David, king God
King is either David or God. David’s city is either Bethlehem, his native town and famous for the approved inclusion of Moabites into Israelite life, and David’s city is Zion, captured from the Jebusites and dedicated for royal residences.
Zion has no nationalist future
Israel’s neighbours have a place in the royal city, and the ones that were hostile to Israel are named as native: Rahab Babylon, Philistia, and Tyre.
Fundamental Zionism has taken a U-turn because no one has been nir2Psalm 87
His foundation is in the holy mountains. The Lord loveth the gates of Zion more than all the dwellings of Jacob. Glorious things are spoken of thee, O city of God. Selah. I will make mention of Rahab and Babylon to them that know me: behold Philistia, and Tyre, with Ethiopia; this man was born there. And of Zion it shall be said, This and that man was born in her: and the highest himself shall establish her. The Lord shall count, when he writeth up the people, that this man was born there. Selah. As well the singers as the players on instruments shall be there: all my springs are in thee.
A Song and Psalm for the sons of Korah.Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised in the city of our God, in the mountain of his holiness. Beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole earth, is mount Zion, on the sides of the north, the city of the great King.Psalms 48:1-2
Israel has had its share of crap kings and the United States’ DNA is dominated by an anti-monarch gene.
