Trump may be God’s chosen one to save Israeli Jews from “the Iranian menace,” Secretary of State Mike Pompeo confirmed in a baffling interview with the (Zionist) Christian Broadcasting Network:
Specifically, the interviewer asked Pompeo if Trump could be a modern day version of the biblical character Esther, a beautiful woman chosen to be married to Persian King Ahasuerus.
Presumably the comparison wasn’t invited in light of Trump’s feminine charm, but due to the fact that Esther spoiled the plans of the king’s chief advisor Haman, who wanted to kill all of the Jews living in Persia.
The interviewer states rather factually that there is a “new Haman” in the Middle East who wants to “eradicate the Jewish people,” also known as Iran, and asked if President Trump had been chosen, “just like queen Esther,” in order to “save the Jewish people from the Iranian menace?”
“As a Christian I certainly believe that’s possible,” Pompeo answered with a smile. The interview took place during Pompeo’s visit to Jerusalem on the day Jews mark the foiling of Haman’s plans with a holiday called Purim.
Aside from the holiday, the secretary’s comments came in light of Trump’s announcement that the US would recognize the occupied Golan Heights as part of Israel, despite a UN resolution which condemns Tel Aviv’s forceful acquisition of the territory.
“I am confident that the Lord is at work here,” Pompeo added, describing the role the United States has played in preserving the “Jewish state.”
Pompeo’s bizarre comment fetched a number of responses from people on Twitter that ranged between concerned and terrified.
Not only is this move to recognize the Golan Heights as part of Israel an attempt to bolster Netanhyahu’s popularity during his re-election campaign, it’s also intended to secure Trump’s re-election base among rabid Christian Zionists who believe that Trump’s pro-Israel foreign policy is bringing them one step closer to being “raptured” up in to heaven when the Jews build the so-called Third Temple which will allegedly be the “greenlight” for Jesus to return.
Trump has now made two major moves toward bringing about “The Rapture” for his evangelical base: he’s moved the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem, and now, in violation of international law and U.N. resolutions, he’s handing over control of the Golan Heights, which is part of Syria, to the Israelis who consider it, along with the West Bank and Gaza, to be part of “greater” Israel, which is why a so-called “two-State solution” can never happen. Next on the list, will be building that “Third Temple,” which those rapture-crazed Christians have already donated millions to in the desperate hope that Jesus loves those who love the Israelis.
