  • THAT DEATH TO ISRAEL WAS THE MANTRA OF THAT NATION
  • 00:01:31.280 --> 00:01:35.040

  • 00:01:35.060 --> 00:01:43.150
  • CALLS FOR THE MASSACRE OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE AND
  • 00:01:43.170 --> 00:01:49.110

  • WE MAKE THE POINT THAT LOOK, FIRST AND FOREMOST
  • 00:14:10.100 --> 00:14:12.190
  • THERE'S A BIBLICAL BASIS FOR SUPPORT FOR ISRAEL.
  • 00:14:12.210 --> 00:14:14.080
  • IF YOU ARE A FOLLOWER OF JESUS, YOU NEED TO STAND
  • 00:14:14.100 --> 00:14:17.010
  • WITH THE LAND OF ISRAEL.
  • 00:14:17.030 --> 00:14:18.030
  • IT'S A BIBLICAL MANDATE.
  • 00:14:18.050 --> 00:14:19.050
  • NO GRAY AREAS THERE.
  • 00:14:19.070 --> 00:14:20.240
  • GOD IS VERY BLACK AND WHITE WHEN HE TALKS ABOUT
  • 00:14:20.260 --> 00:14:23.030
  • ISRAEL AND THE JEWISH PEOPLE IN HIS WORD.
  • 00:14:23.050 --> 00:14:25.170
  • BUT ON THE SHOW, MATT, I LIKE TO HIT ON REASONS
  • 00:14:25.190 --> 00:14:29.150
  • THAT A SECULAR PERSON COULD SUPPORT ISRAEL.
  • 00:14:29.170 --> 00:14:31.250
  • NUMBER ONE, PASTOR HAGEE JUST TOUCHED ON THIS,
  • 00:14:31.270 --> 00:14:34.090
  • ISRAEL IS THE FIRST LINE OF DEFENSE FOR THE WEST.
  • 00:14:34.110 --> 00:14:36.270
  • FOR YOU AND I AND OUR FAMILIES, ISRAEL IS
  • 00:14:36.290 --> 00:14:39.180
  • FIGHTING THE GOOD FIGHT IN THE BELLY OF THE
  • 00:14:39.200 --> 00:14:41.250
  • BEAST, THE MIDDLE EAST, HOLDING BACK THOSE
  • 00:14:41.270 --> 00:14:44.080
  • BARBARIANS FROM COMING HERE IN A MAJOR WAY
  • 00:14:44.100 --> 00:14:46.220
  • WHETHER IT'S THE IRANIAN REGIME, HAMAS, HEZBOLLAH
  • 00:14:46.240 --> 00:14:48.290
  • AND ALL THE REST.
  • 00:14:49.010 --> 00:14:50.270
  • NOT ONLY THAT, MATT, AND YOU KNOW THIS SO WELL,
  • 00:14:50.290 --> 00:14:52.240
  • YOU'RE IN ISRAEL ALL THE TIME, ISRAEL IS A BEACON
  • 00:14:52.260 --> 00:14:55.030
  • OF DEMOCRACY AND TOLERANCE, OF FREE
  • 00:14:55.050 --> 00:14:58.200
  • DEMOCRACY WITH HUMAN RIGHTS, WOMEN'S RIGHTS.
  • 00:14:58.220 --> 00:15:01.080
  • THE CHRISTIANS POPULATION IN ISRAEL IS ACTUALLY
  • 00:15:01.100 --> 00:15:03.230
  • GROWING, YET ISRAEL IS IN A SEA OF TYRANNY RIGHT IN
  • 00:15:03.250 --> 00:15:06.140
  • THE MIDDLE EAST.
  • 00:15:06.160 --> 00:15:08.100
  • SO A BEACON OF FREEDOM OF DEMOCRACY, AND THIRD,
  • 00:15:08.120 --> 00:15:10.210
  • LOOK, ISRAEL IS A GROWING TECHNOLOGICAL SCIENTIFIC
  • 00:15:10.230 --> 00:15:13.200

  • STATEMENT A CELEBRATION.
  • 00:15:53.000 --> 00:15:54.050
  • HOW DO YOU WALK THAT LINE OF CELEBRATING AND BEING
  • 00:15:54.070 --> 00:15:56.080
  • CONCERNED AT THE SAME TIME?
  • 00:15:56.100 --> 00:15:57.220
  • - YOU KNOW, IT'S INTERESTING, MATT, THE
  • 00:15:57.240 --> 00:15:59.070
  • BIBLE SAYS MY PEOPLE PERISH FOR LACK OF
  • 00:15:59.090 --> 00:16:01.070
  • KNOWLEDGE, SO THAT'S OUR JOB ON THE WATCHMAN SHOW

  • HERE ON TBN, TO EDUCATE PEOPLE ABOUT OKAY,
  • 00:16:03.170 --> 00:16:06.290
  • THERE'S PERILOUS TIMES WE'RE LIVING IN.

  • AS PASTOR SAID, THESE ARE BIBLE TIMES, THESE ARE
  • 00:16:08.170 --> 00:16:10.210
  • EXCITING TIMES AND ISRAEL, NUMBER ONE,
  • 00:16:10.230 --> 00:16:13.070
  • STEPPING INTO ITS DESTINY, IT'S BIBLICAL
  • 00:16:13.090 --> 00:16:15.180
  • DESTINY, TAKING UP THAT MANDATE TO BE THE HEAD
  • 00:16:15.200 --> 00:16:18.030
  • AND NOT THE TAIL AS PASTOR SAID.
  • 00:16:18.050 --> 00:16:19.250
  • BUT ALSO IN TERMS OF THE CELEBRATION, OKAY, WE
  • 00:16:19.270 --> 00:16:22.130
  • TALK ABOUT THE THREATS AND ALL OF THAT AND IT'S
  • 00:16:22.150 --> 00:16:25.020
  • ALL SERIOUS AND TRUE, BUT IN TERMS OF THE
  • 00:16:25.040 --> 00:16:27.020
  • CELEBRATION, THE JEWISH PEOPLE GAVE US THE

  • TO ME THAT'S WOW!
  • 00:16:36.230 --> 00:16:38.080
  • WITHOUT JUDAISM, AGAIN PASTOR SAID THIS MANY
  • 00:16:38.100 --> 00:16:40.260
  • TIMES, THERE IS NO CHRISTIANITY.
  • 00:16:40.280 --> 00:16:42.150
  • WE OWE SUCH A DEATH OF SPIRITUAL GRATITUDE AND
  • 00:16:42.170 --> 00:16:44.260
  • MATERIAL GRATITUDE TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE.
  • 00:16:44.280 --> 00:16:47.140
  • I THINK THAT'S WORTH CELEBRATING.
  • 00:16:47.160 --> 00:16:49.140
  • AND BY THE WAY, WE HAVE THE MOST PRO ISRAEL
  • 00:16:49.160 --> 00:16:51.140

  • USE THE BOMB, AND WE ARE GOING TO BE IN A CRISIS
  • 00:19:04.210 --> 00:19:09.070
  • SITUATION IN A VERY VERY SHORT PERIOD OF TIME.

  • 00:19:30.130 --> 00:19:35.020
  • IT IS TRULY HEARTENING AS SECRETARY OF STATE TO

  • KNOW THERE ARE SO MANY AMERICANS SHARING
  • 00:19:37.160 --> 00:19:39.120
  • PRESIDENT TRUMP'S MISSION TO MAKE OUR RELATIONSHIP
  • 00:19:39.140 --> 00:19:41.040
  • WITH ISRAEL THE STRONGEST THAT IT HAS EVER BEEN.

  • I WANT TO KICK OFF MY REMARKS BY TELLING YOU
  • 00:19:44.120 --> 00:19:45.260
  • SOMETHING THAT YOU ALREADY KNOW BUT
  • 00:19:45.280 --> 00:19:47.000
  • A LOT OF FOLKS TRULY DON'T.
  • 00:19:47.020 --> 00:19:49.080
  • CHRISTIANS IN AMERICA ARE AMONG ISRAEL'S
  • 00:19:49.100 --> 00:19:50.180
  • GREATEST FRIENDS.
  • 00:19:50.200 --> 00:19:52.050
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:19:52.070 --> 00:19:56.190
  • THIS ISN'T A NEW DEVELOPMENT.
  • 00:19:56.210 --> 00:19:59.060
  • CHRISTIAN SUPPORT IN AMERICA FOR ZION FOR A
  • 00:19:59.080 --> 00:20:02.030
  • JEWISH HOMELAND RUNS BACK TO THE EARLY PURITAN
  • 00:20:02.050 --> 00:20:05.030
  • SETTLERS AND HAS ENDURED FOR CENTURIES.
  • 00:20:05.050 --> 00:20:09.150
  • AMERICA HAS AN INCREDIBLY UNIQUE AND IMPORTANT
  • 00:20:09.170 --> 00:20:11.170
  • RELATIONSHIP WITH ISRAEL AND IT'S ONE THAT I
  • 00:20:11.190 --> 00:20:14.180
  • PERSONALLY TREASURE AND AM PROUD TO WORK
  • 00:20:14.200 --> 00:20:16.210
  • EVERY DAY TO MAINTAIN.
  • 00:20:16.230 --> 00:20:19.010
  • MODERN ISRAEL IS THE ONLY TRULY FREE NATION
  • 00:20:19.030 --> 00:20:23.070
  • THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE MIDDLE EAST.
  • 00:20:23.090 --> 00:20:25.090
  • IT HAS AN ENORMOUS RESPECT FOR RELIGIOUS
  • 00:20:25.110 --> 00:20:27.280
  • FREEDOM, A SUBJECT OF MANY OF OUR HEARTS THESE DAYS.
  • 00:20:28.000 --> 00:20:30.270
  • HERE TOO.
  • 00:20:30.290 --> 00:20:33.060
  • HERE TOO ISRAEL'S COMMITMENT LIGHTS THE WAY
  • 00:20:33.080 --> 00:20:35.010
  • FOR THE REST OF THE MIDDLE EAST, INDEED FOR
  • 00:20:35.030 --> 00:20:36.220
  • THE ENTIRE WORLD.
  • 00:20:36.240 --> 00:20:39.200
  • NO COUNTRY IS PERFECT, BUT ISRAEL LIKE AMERICA
  • 00:20:39.220 --> 00:20:41.220
  • HOLDS ITSELF TO AN INCREDIBLY HIGH STANDARD.
  • 00:20:41.240 --> 00:20:44.190
  • ISRAEL IS A MAJORITY JEWISH NATION, BUT THE
  • 00:20:44.210 --> 00:20:48.040
  • GOVERNMENT DOESN'T FORCE JEWISH BELIEFS ON OTHERS.
  • 00:20:48.060 --> 00:20:50.090
  • INDEED TO THE CONTRARY, IT'S DECLARATION OF
  • 00:20:50.110 --> 00:20:52.290
  • INDEPENDENCE GUARANTEES A FULL FREEDOM OF
  • 00:20:53.010 --> 00:20:55.090
  • CONSCIENCE, WORSHIP, EDUCATION AND CULTURE.
  • 00:20:55.110 --> 00:20:59.210
  • ISRAEL PERMITS THE CONVERSION OF ITS
  • 00:20:59.230 --> 00:21:02.000
  • CITIZENS AWAY FROM JUDAISM, THE MAJORITY RELIGION.
  • 00:21:02.020 --> 00:21:05.200
  • INDEED LAST YEAR, THE KNESSET, THEIR PARLIAMENT
  • 00:21:05.220 --> 00:21:07.200
  • IN ISRAEL PASSED A LAW PROHIBITING HIRING
  • 00:21:07.220 --> 00:21:10.050
  • DISCRIMINATION AGAINST WORKERS WHO REFUSE TO
  • 00:21:10.070 --> 00:21:12.010
  • WORK ON THEIR DAY OF REST.
  • 00:21:12.030 --> 00:21:15.030
  • COMPARE THIS TO MANY PLACES IN THE WORLD.
  • 00:21:15.050 --> 00:21:18.140
  • COMPARE ISRAEL'S REVERENCE FOR LIBERTY
  • 00:21:18.160 --> 00:21:20.000
  • WITH THE RESTRICTIONS ON RELIGIOUS FREEDOM FACING
  • 00:21:20.020 --> 00:21:22.050
  • CHRISTIANS AND PEOPLE OF ALL FAITHS THROUGHOUT THE
  • 00:21:22.070 --> 00:21:25.010
  • REST OF THE MIDDLE EAST.
  • 00:21:25.030 --> 00:21:27.180
  • IN MANY COUNTRIES, IF A MUSLIM LEAVES ISLAM,
  • 00:21:27.200 --> 00:21:31.180
  • IT IS CONSIDERED AN APOSTASY AND IT IS
  • 00:21:31.200 --> 00:21:34.060
  • PUNISHABLE INDEED BY DEATH.
  • 00:21:34.080 --> 00:21:37.070
  • IN IRAQ, SYRIA, AND OTHER COUNTRIES IN THE REGION,
  • 00:21:37.090 --> 00:21:41.030
  • THE LAST REMNANTS OF ANCIENT CHRISTIAN
  • 00:21:41.050 --> 00:21:42.260
  • COMMUNITIES ARE IN NEAR EXTINCTION BECAUSE OF
  • 00:21:42.280 --> 00:21:45.180
  • PERSECUTION FROM ISIS AND OTHER MALIGN ACTORS.
  • 00:21:45.200 --> 00:21:49.280
  • JUST ONE EXAMPLE, BEFORE 2003 THERE WERE AN
  • 00:21:50.000 --> 00:21:53.190
  • ESTIMATED 1.5 MILLION CHRISTIANS LIVING IN IRAQ.
  • 00:21:53.210 --> 00:21:57.120
  • TODAY, SADLY, ALMOST A QUARTER OF A MILLION.
  • 00:21:57.140 --> 00:22:02.270
  • THIS ADMINISTRATION HAS MADE A REAL EFFORT TO
  • 00:22:02.290 --> 00:22:05.010
  • PROTECT CHRISTIANS AND OTHER THREATENED
  • 00:22:05.030 --> 00:22:06.170
  • RELIGIOUS MINORITIES IN IRAQ AND ELSEWHERE.
  • 00:22:06.190 --> 00:22:09.060
  • THEIR UNALIENABLE RIGHTS, CHRISTIANS' UNALIENABLE
  • 00:22:09.080 --> 00:22:11.100
  • RIGHTS IN THE MIDDLE EAST, THEIR RIGHT TO
  • 00:22:11.120 --> 00:22:13.020
  • WORSHIP MUST NOT BE TAKEN AWAY.
  • 00:22:13.040 --> 00:22:15.030
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:22:15.050 --> 00:22:20.250
  • PERSECUTION OF THE FAITHFUL IS ESPECIALLY
  • 00:22:20.270 --> 00:22:23.120
  • INTENSE INSIDE THE ISLAMIC REPUBLIC OF IRAN.
  • 00:22:23.140 --> 00:22:26.290
  • THE REGIME'S MILITANT ADHERENCE TO THE NOXIOUS
  • 00:22:27.010 --> 00:22:29.030
  • TENETS OF ISLAMIC REVOLUTION DICTATES ALL
  • 00:22:29.050 --> 00:22:32.040
  • ELEMENTS OF LIFE AND ESPECIALLY THE
  • 00:22:32.060 --> 00:22:34.130
  • SUPPRESSION OF OTHER FAITHS.
  • 00:22:34.150 --> 00:22:36.230
  • IN IRAN, IF MUSLIMS TRY TO CONVERT NON-MUSLIMS,
  • 00:22:36.250 --> 00:22:39.100
  • THE PENAL CODE CALLS FOR DEATH SENTENCE.
  • 00:22:39.120 --> 00:22:42.160
  • THE GOVERNMENT DOES NOT RECOGNIZE
  • 00:22:42.180 --> 00:22:43.190
  • CONVERTS TO CHRISTIANITY.
  • 00:22:43.210 --> 00:22:46.130
  • IT LEVIES BEATINGS AND SOLITARY CONFINEMENT ON
  • 00:22:46.150 --> 00:22:48.140
  • CHRISTIANS CAUGHT WORSHIPPING IN VIOLATION
  • 00:22:48.160 --> 00:22:50.030
  • OF GOVERNMENT DICTATES.
  • 00:22:50.050 --> 00:22:52.060
  • LAST YEAR, AN IRANIAN COURT UPHELD A TEN YEAR
  • 00:22:52.080 --> 00:22:56.250
  • PRISON SENTENCE ON FOUR IRANIAN CHRISTIANS WHO
  • 00:22:56.270 --> 00:22:59.270
  • WERE ACTING AGAINST NATIONAL SECURITY BY
  • 00:22:59.290 --> 00:23:02.220
  • QUOTE "PROMOTING ZIONIST CHRISTIANITY" END OF
  • 00:23:02.240 --> 00:23:05.130
  • QUOTE AND RUNNING HOUSE CHURCHES.
  • 00:23:05.150 --> 00:23:07.250
  • THIS IS SOMETHING WE KNOW IN AMERICA.
  • 00:23:07.270 --> 00:23:09.290
  • INSTEAD, INSTEAD OF FOLLOWING THE NORMAL
  • 00:23:10.010 --> 00:23:12.240
  • SUMMIT'S PROCEDURES, AUTHORITIES RAIDED THEIR
  • 00:23:12.260 --> 00:23:15.000
  • HOMES, BEAT THEM AND USED THE ELECTRIC SHOCK
  • 00:23:15.020 --> 00:23:16.130
  • WEAPONS ON THEM.
  • 00:23:16.150 --> 00:23:17.230
  • THEY THEN THREW THEM INTO PRISON, A REGIME
  • 00:23:17.250 --> 00:23:20.070
  • DUNGEON INSIDE OF TEHRAN.
  • 00:23:20.090 --> 00:23:23.110
  • AYATOLLAHS HAVE GRIEVOUSLY DEPRIVED THE IRANIAN PEOPLE
  • 00:23:23.130 --> 00:23:27.080
  • OF THAT MOST BASIC SIMPLE FUNDAMENTAL RIGHT:
  • 00:23:27.100 --> 00:23:29.240
  • THE RIGHT TO WORSHIP.
  • 00:23:29.260 --> 00:23:32.270
  • THAT SAME TWISTED, INTOLERANT DOCTRINE THAT
  • 00:23:32.290 --> 00:23:37.000
  • FUELS PERSECUTION INSIDE IRAN HAS ALSO LED THE
  • 00:23:37.020 --> 00:23:39.190
  • AYATOLLAH AND HIS CRONIES TO CRY OUT QUOTE
  • 00:23:39.210 --> 00:23:41.270
  • "DEATH TO ISRAEL" FOR FOUR DECADES NOW.
  • 00:23:41.290 --> 00:23:45.130
  • THIS IS SIMILAR TO A CRY THAT CAME OUT OF IRAN,
  • 00:23:45.150 --> 00:23:47.030
  • THEN CALLED PERSIA, MANY MANY YEARS AGO.
  • 00:23:47.050 --> 00:23:50.020
  • THE BOOK OF ESTHER TEACHES US ABOUT THIS.
  • 00:23:50.040 --> 00:23:52.140
  • IT WAS IN THE FIFTH CENTURY B.C.
  • 00:23:52.160 --> 00:23:54.230
  • THERE WAS A WICKED ADVISOR NAMED KING XERXES.
  • 00:23:54.250 --> 00:23:57.260
  • A FELLOW NAMED HAMAN HATCHED A PLOT TO KILL
  • 00:23:57.280 --> 00:24:02.270
  • ALL THE JEWS IN THE PERSIAN EMPIRE.
  • 00:24:02.290 --> 00:24:05.210
  • HE SECRETLY WROTE LETTERS WITH THE KING'S SEAL TO
  • 00:24:05.230 --> 00:24:07.230
  • ALL THE PROVINCIAL GOVERNORS ORDERING PEOPLE
  • 00:24:07.250 --> 00:24:10.030
  • TO RISE UP AND ATTACK THE JEWS.
  • 00:24:10.050 --> 00:24:13.100
  • THIS EDICT ONCE ISSUED COULD NOT BE REVOKED.
  • 00:24:13.120 --> 00:24:17.040
  • BUT THANKS TO THE COURAGEOUS INTERVENTION
  • 00:24:17.060 --> 00:24:19.020
  • OF QUEEN ESTHER WHO BEGGED THE KING TO SHOW
  • 00:24:19.040 --> 00:24:21.060
  • MERCY TO HER PEOPLE, HAMAN'S PLOT WAS EXPOSED
  • 00:24:21.080 --> 00:24:23.180
  • AND THE JEWS WERE ULTIMATELY SPARED.
  • 00:24:23.200 --> 00:24:26.200
  • TODAY, THIS MARKS THE JEWISH HOLIDAY OF PURIM
  • 00:24:26.220 --> 00:24:31.020
  • AND IT COMMEMORATES THIS AMAZING MIRACLE.
  • 00:24:31.040 --> 00:24:33.120
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:24:33.140 --> 00:24:37.130
  • I WANTED TO TELL THE STORY TODAY FOR A COUPLE
  • 00:24:37.150 --> 00:24:39.090
  • OF REASONS BECAUSE SIMILAR THREATS TO THE
  • 00:24:39.110 --> 00:24:40.270
  • JEWISH PEOPLE HAVE MARKED OTHER ERAS AS WELL.
  • 00:24:40.290 --> 00:24:43.290
  • THINK OF THE ROMAN DEVASTATION OF JERUSALEM.
  • 00:24:44.010 --> 00:24:47.070
  • THE VICIOUS PROGRAMS THROUGHOUT EUROPEAN
  • 00:24:47.090 --> 00:24:49.110
  • HISTORY AND THE HOLOCAUST.
  • 00:24:49.130 --> 00:24:51.180
  • THE JEWS HAVE HAD A TARGET ON THEIR BACK IN
  • 00:24:51.200 --> 00:24:53.130
  • EVERY ERA OF HISTORY, AND AS THE BOOK OF
  • 00:24:53.150 --> 00:24:56.120
  • ECCLESIASTICS SAYS, THERE IS INDEED NOTHING NEW UNDER
  • 00:24:56.140 --> 00:24:59.250
  • THE SUN. BUT THANK GOD, THANK GOD WE HAVE A LEADER
  • 00:24:59.270 --> 00:25:05.210
  • IN PRESIDENT TRUMP, AN IMMOVABLE FRIEND OF ISRAEL.
  • 00:25:05.230 --> 00:25:08.180
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:25:08.200 --> 00:25:14.040
  • YOU KNOW THE STORY BUT WE'VE IMPLEMENTED THE
  • 00:25:14.060 --> 00:25:18.080
  • STRONGEST PRESSURE CAMPAIGN IN HISTORY
  • 00:25:18.100 --> 00:25:20.100
  • AGAINST THE IRANIAN REGIME AND WE ARE NOT DONE.
  • 00:25:20.120 --> 00:25:23.160
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:25:23.180 --> 00:25:29.140
  • WE'VE CUT OFF BILLIONS IN FUNDS THAT THE ISLAMIC
  • 00:25:29.160 --> 00:25:33.050
  • REPUBLIC OF IRAN'S LEADERSHIP WOULD HAVE
  • 00:25:33.070 --> 00:25:34.260
  • USED FOR VARIOUS NEFARIOUS PURPOSES NOT THE LEAST OF
  • 00:25:34.280 --> 00:25:37.170
  • WHICH WOULD HAVE BEEN THEIR EFFORTS TO DESTROY
  • 00:25:37.190 --> 00:25:39.120
  • THE STATE OF ISRAEL.
  • 00:25:39.140 --> 00:25:42.270
  • IT IS ALSO THE CASE THAT UNDER PRESIDENT TRUMP
  • 00:25:42.290 --> 00:25:44.270
  • THAT ISRAEL HATERS SUCH AS HAMAS AND HEZBOLLAH
  • 00:25:44.290 --> 00:25:47.270
  • AND ISLAMIC JIHAD RECEIVE FAR LESS BLOOD MONEY FROM
  • 00:25:47.290 --> 00:25:51.030
  • IRAN TO PURSUE THEIR TERRORISM THAN EVER
  • 00:25:51.050 --> 00:25:53.110
  • IN RECENT HISTORY.
  • 00:25:53.130 --> 00:25:55.070
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:25:55.090 --> 00:26:01.180
  • PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS TOO MAINTAINED THE $4 BILLION
  • 00:26:01.200 --> 00:26:04.020
  • DOLLAR ANNUAL SECURITY ASSISTANCE TO ISRAEL, AND
  • 00:26:04.040 --> 00:26:07.090
  • WE'VE HONORED ISRAEL'S DECISION TO CLAIM THE
  • 00:26:07.110 --> 00:26:08.240
  • GOLAN HEIGHTS AS ITS OWN.
  • 00:26:08.260 --> 00:26:11.040
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:26:11.060 --> 00:26:16.040
  • THE LORD DID SMILE ON ME.
  • 00:26:16.060 --> 00:26:18.220
  • I WAS IN ISRAEL THE VERY DAY THAT THAT
  • 00:26:18.240 --> 00:26:22.060
  • ANNOUNCEMENT WAS MADE.
  • 00:26:22.080 --> 00:26:23.230
  • I WAS WITH PRIME MINISTER NETANYAHU.
  • 00:26:23.250 --> 00:26:25.150
  • MY WIFE SUSAN AND I WERE ABLE TO HAVE DINNER WITH
  • 00:26:25.170 --> 00:26:28.130
  • HE AND HIS WIFE THE VERY DAY OF THAT ANNOUNCEMENT.
  • 00:26:28.150 --> 00:26:31.050
  • IT WAS TRULY REMARKABLE TO BE THERE WITH THIS
  • 00:26:31.070 --> 00:26:33.150
  • PRIME MINISTER ON THAT DAY WHEN OUR PRESIDENT
  • 00:26:33.170 --> 00:26:35.290
  • MADE THAT HISTORIC PROCLAMATION.
  • 00:26:36.010 --> 00:26:38.100
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:26:38.120 --> 00:26:44.280
  • WITHIN THE STATE DEPARTMENT TOO WE'VE
  • 00:26:45.000 --> 00:26:46.040
  • ELEVATED THE FIGHT AGAINST ANTI-SEMITISM.
  • 00:26:46.060 --> 00:26:48.020
  • IT'S A CONVERSATION I HAVE ALL THE TIME.
  • 00:26:48.040 --> 00:26:50.240
  • INDEED I HAD ONE WITH THE ARCHBISHOP
  • 00:26:50.260 --> 00:26:52.050
  • OF CANTERBURY LAST MAY. I WAS THE FIRST AMERICAN
  • 00:26:52.070 --> 00:26:54.280
  • SECRETARY OF STATE TO EVER MEET A HOLDER OF THAT OFFICE
  • 00:26:55.000 --> 00:26:57.190
  • THAT'S EXISTED SINCE THE SIXTH CENTURY.
  • 00:26:57.210 --> 00:27:00.040
  • I KEPT THINKING DURING OUR MEETING THAT THE
  • 00:27:00.060 --> 00:27:04.020
  • SECRETARY OF STATE IS AN OLD HISTORIC OFFICE, THEN
  • 00:27:04.040 --> 00:27:06.110
  • I REALIZED HE HAD ABOUT 1200 YEARS ON ME.
  • 00:27:06.130 --> 00:27:08.150
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:27:08.170 --> 00:27:11.210
  • WE TOO WITH THE STATE DEPARTMENT HAVE ADVANCED
  • 00:27:11.230 --> 00:27:14.120
  • RELIGIOUS FREEDOM IN OUR FOREIGN POLICY.
  • 00:27:14.140 --> 00:27:17.020
  • THIS IS SOMETHING THAT HAD BEEN MISSING FOR TOO LONG.
  • 00:27:17.040 --> 00:27:20.140
  • LAST YEAR I HOSTED THE FIRST EVER GATHERING OF
  • 00:27:20.160 --> 00:27:23.160
  • FOREIGN MINISTERS FROM ALL ACROSS THE WORLD
  • 00:27:23.180 --> 00:27:25.290
  • DEVOTED SOLELY TO ADVANCING RELIGIOUS
  • 00:27:26.010 --> 00:27:27.280
  • FREEDOM AND WILL DO IT AGAIN IN THE MIDDLE OF JULY.
  • 00:27:28.000 --> 00:27:30.150
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:27:30.170 --> 00:27:40.050
  • AND I THINK WE'VE PUT THE U.N. ON NOTICE TOO THAT
  • 00:27:40.070 --> 00:27:42.080
  • ITS ANTI-ISRAEL BIAS WILL NO LONGER BE TOLERATED.
  • 00:27:42.100 --> 00:27:45.030
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:27:45.050 --> 00:27:52.000
  • AND WHILE I WASN'T THERE ON THE DAY THAT IT
  • 00:27:52.020 --> 00:27:53.260
  • HAPPENED, I WAS ABLE TO TRAVEL NOW TWICE TO SEE
  • 00:27:53.280 --> 00:27:56.060
  • OUR EMBASSY, THE STATE DEPARTMENT'S EMBASSY THAT
  • 00:27:56.080 --> 00:27:59.290
  • WAS MOVED TO JERUSALEM TO RECOGNIZE A SIMPLE
  • 00:28:00.030 --> 00:28:02.010
  • REALITY OF JERUSALEM, ISRAEL'S CAPITAL,
  • 00:28:02.030 --> 00:28:04.120
  • NOW AND FOREVER.
  • 00:28:04.140 --> 00:28:06.150
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:28:06.170 --> 00:28:13.120
  • THE OTHER GREAT THING ABOUT THIS ADMINISTRATION
  • 00:28:13.140 --> 00:28:15.010
  • IS WE LIVE IN A VERY REAL WORLD, AND FOR THAT
  • 00:28:15.030 --> 00:28:19.060
  • REASON I WAS ABLE LAST MARCH TO DECLARE A SIMPLE
  • 00:28:19.080 --> 00:28:21.120
  • TRUTH THAT ANTI-ZIONISM IS INDEED ANTI-SEMITISM,
  • 00:28:21.140 --> 00:28:24.210
  • PERIOD, FULL STOP.
  • 00:28:24.230 --> 00:28:26.190
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:28:26.210 --> 00:28:31.240
  • IT IS ALSO A BLESSING TO STAND WITH OTHER
  • 00:28:31.260 --> 00:28:33.290
  • COUNTRIES LIKE ISRAEL THAT THEMSELVES STAND FOR
  • 00:28:34.010 --> 00:28:35.260
  • FREEDOM BECAUSE INDEED THAT'S WHAT IT'S ALL ABOUT
  • 00:28:35.280 --> 00:28:38.170
  • HERE IN AMERICA EVERY SINGLE DAY.
  • 00:28:38.190 --> 00:28:40.260
  • PLEASE KNOW AS THIS ADMINISTRATION WORKS THAT
  • 00:28:40.280 --> 00:28:43.230
  • I COVET YOUR PRAYERS AS I DO THIS WORK.
  • 00:28:43.250 --> 00:28:47.050
  • MAY GOD BLESS YOU, MAY GOD BLESS ISRAEL, AND MAY
  • 00:28:47.070 --> 00:28:50.190
  • GOD BLESS THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
  • 00:28:50.210 --> 00:28:52.190
  • THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH.
  • 00:28:52.210 --> 00:28:54.160
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:28:54.180 --> 00:29:00.030
  • - MATT CROUCH: IF YOU JUST TUNED IN,
  • 00:29:00.050 --> 00:29:01.130
  • WE ARE RIGHT HERE IN WASHINGTON DC.
  • 00:29:01.150 --> 00:29:03.230
  • WE'RE AT THE NATIONAL CONVENTION THIS WEEK
  • 00:29:03.250 --> 00:29:07.260
  • RIGHT HERE IN WASHINGTON DC FOR THE CUFI EVENT,
  • 00:29:07.280 --> 00:29:12.070
  • CHRISTIANS UNITED FOR ISRAEL.

  • NOW THIS CONVENTION SHOULD-- AND YOU KNOW IN
  • 00:29:13.230 --> 00:29:17.210
  • SOME WAYS IT FEELS LIKE A CELEBRATION.
  • 00:29:17.230 --> 00:29:19.230
  • I MEAN WHEN THIS MANY PEOPLE GET HERE AND
  • 00:29:19.250 --> 00:29:22.030
  • PRAISE AND WORSHIP, CAN YOU CELEBRATE AT THE SAME
  • 00:29:22.050 --> 00:29:25.050
  • TIME YOU'RE CONCERNED FOR THE PRESERVATION OF
  • 00:29:25.070 --> 00:29:28.030
  • ISRAEL? HOW DO YOU KIND OF WALK THOSE TWO LINES?
  • 00:29:28.050 --> 00:29:30.230
  • - CELEBRATING ISRAEL IS A DAILY THING.
  • 00:29:30.250 --> 00:29:33.230
  • WHENEVER A PERSON GOES TO THE WESTERN WALL AND
  • 00:29:33.250 --> 00:29:39.000
  • PRAYS, I HAVE BEEN ALL OVER THE WORLD BUT I CAN
  • 00:29:39.020 --> 00:29:42.270
  • TELL YOU THAT THERE IS A PRESENCE OF GOD AT THE
  • 00:29:42.290 --> 00:29:46.070
  • WESTERN WALL QUITE UNLIKE ANY PLACE I'VE
  • 00:29:46.090 --> 00:29:49.050
  • EVER BEEN IN MY LIFE.
  • 00:29:49.070 --> 00:29:51.210
  • EVERY TIME I GO TO ISRAEL, I GO TO THAT WALL
  • 00:29:51.230 --> 00:29:54.290
  • AS OFTEN AS I CAN GO AND STAY AS LONG AS THE
  • 00:29:55.010 --> 00:29:58.260
  • PEOPLE I'M WITH CAN STAND BECAUSE THERE IS A DIVINE
  • 00:29:58.280 --> 00:30:03.250
  • AND SUPERNATURAL ANOINTING ON THE CITY OF
  • 00:30:03.270 --> 00:30:07.140
  • JERUSALEM AND ON THAT WALL.
  • 00:30:07.160 --> 00:30:10.040
  • THE BIBLE SAYS, THE LORD'S SPEAKING,
  • 00:30:10.060 --> 00:30:13.230
  • HE THAT KEEPETH ISRAEL NEITHER SLUMBERS NOR SLEEPS.
  • 00:30:13.250 --> 00:30:17.210
  • THE WORD "KEEPETH" IS A MILITARY TERM MEANING TO
  • 00:30:17.230 --> 00:30:20.190
  • PROTECT AND DEFEND.
  • 00:30:20.210 --> 00:30:22.150
  • AS THE MOUNTAINS ARE AROUND ABOUT JERUSALEM,
  • 00:30:22.170 --> 00:30:25.000
  • SO IS THE LORD ROUNDABOUT HIS PEOPLE,
  • 00:30:25.020 --> 00:30:27.100
  • SPEAKING TO JEWISH PEOPLE.
  • 00:30:27.120 --> 00:30:29.140
  • WHENEVER YOU RECOGNIZE THAT GOD CONSIDERS ISRAEL
  • 00:30:29.160 --> 00:30:33.100
  • HIS FIRST BORN SON AS IS STATED IN THE BOOK OF
  • 00:30:33.120 --> 00:30:36.160
  • EXODUS, WHEN YOU UNDERSTAND HOW MUCH GOD
  • 00:30:36.180 --> 00:30:39.110
  • TRULY LOVES THE JEWISH PEOPLE, THEN YOU
  • 00:30:39.130 --> 00:30:42.150
  • UNDERSTAND THAT GOD'S EYE IS ON THAT CITY
  • 00:30:42.170 --> 00:30:45.280
  • BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS.
  • 00:30:46.000 --> 00:30:47.260
  • GOD SAYS I HAVE PUT MY NAME THERE AND THE CITY OF
  • 00:30:47.280 --> 00:30:52.180
  • JERUSALEM IS THE EPICENTER OF THE BIBLE
  • 00:30:52.200 --> 00:30:56.220
  • AND IT IS THE SHORELINE OF ETERNITY BECAUSE
  • 00:30:56.240 --> 00:31:00.090
  • EVERYTHING THAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN IN THE
  • 00:31:00.110 --> 00:31:04.060
  • PROPHETIC DIMENSION OF THE FUTURE IS GOING TO
  • 00:31:04.080 --> 00:31:07.000
  • HAPPEN IN JERUSALEM FOREVER.
  • 00:31:07.020 --> 00:31:10.030
  • JERUSALEM IS GOING TO BE THE THRONE OF JESUS
  • 00:31:10.050 --> 00:31:14.110
  • CHRIST OF THE KINGDOM THAT WILL NEVER END AND
  • 00:31:14.130 --> 00:31:17.240
  • IT'S GOING TO LAST FOREVER AND FOREVER AND
  • 00:31:17.260 --> 00:31:20.220
  • FOREVER, AND WE'RE GONNA BE A PART OF THAT GOVERNMENT.
  • 00:31:20.240 --> 00:31:24.060
  • - BEAUTIFUL. WOW.
  • 00:31:24.080 --> 00:31:25.250
  • WHEN YOU READ IN THE BIBLE HOW GOD DEFINED
  • 00:31:25.270 --> 00:31:31.030
  • THE AREA OF THE PROMISE LAND, YOU KNOW THERE'S
  • 00:31:31.050 --> 00:31:35.270
  • ABRAHAM SOJOURNING, I'LL GIVE YOU THE LAND
  • 00:31:35.290 --> 00:31:38.130
  • THAT YOU SOJOURNED.
  • 00:31:38.150 --> 00:31:40.120
  • IT'S NOT ONLY THE WEST SIDE OF THE JORDAN RIVER,
  • 00:31:40.140 --> 00:31:44.090
  • BUT IT'S ALSO SOME ON THE EAST SIDE AND ALL THE WAY
  • 00:31:44.110 --> 00:31:46.260
  • UP TO LEBANON AND ALL OF THAT.
  • 00:31:46.280 --> 00:31:50.050
  • WOULDN'T ANY KIND OF A PEACE ACCORD THAT DOESN'T
  • 00:31:50.070 --> 00:31:57.130
  • RECOGNIZE GOD'S ORIGINAL BORDERS BE SOME KIND OF A
  • 00:31:57.150 --> 00:32:01.090
  • BAND-AID THAT WILL ULTIMATELY NEED TO BE
  • 00:32:01.110 --> 00:32:04.010
  • RIPPED OFF AT SOME POINT?
  • 00:32:04.030 --> 00:32:06.010
  • IN OTHER WORDS, AREN'T WE ALL FIGHTING AGAINST GOD
  • 00:32:06.030 --> 00:32:10.170
  • EVEN THOUGH WE'RE ON HIS SIDE, AREN'T WE FIGHTING
  • 00:32:10.190 --> 00:32:13.070
  • AGAINST HIM UNLESS WE ARE SOMEWHAT SUGGESTING THAT
  • 00:32:13.090 --> 00:32:18.210
  • THE ISRAEL BORDER SHOULD BE WHAT GOD SAID NOT WHAT
  • 00:32:18.230 --> 00:32:21.170
  • WE THINK THEY SHOULD BE.
  • 00:32:21.190 --> 00:32:24.150
  • - WHAT BIBLE BELIEVERS THINK ABOUT THE
  • 00:32:24.170 --> 00:32:27.140
  • GEOGRAPHICAL BORDERS OF ISRAEL IS SIMPLY NOT IN
  • 00:32:27.160 --> 00:32:32.150
  • THE WHEEL HOUSE OF THE SECULAR WORLD.
  • 00:32:32.170 --> 00:32:36.080
  • THEY THINK IT WOULD BE AN ABSOLUTE MIRACLE IF WE
  • 00:32:36.100 --> 00:32:41.240
  • COULD JUST LET ISRAEL HAVE THE LAND THEY HAVE
  • 00:32:41.260 --> 00:32:45.210
  • WITH THE GOLAN HEIGHTS WITHOUT SOMEONE
  • 00:32:45.230 --> 00:32:48.090
  • TRYING TO KILL THEM.
  • 00:32:48.110 --> 00:32:50.050
  • TO TELL THEM THAT YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE A BLOCK OF
  • 00:32:50.070 --> 00:32:56.130
  • REAL ESTATE THAT GOES ALL THE WAY UP TO HAMAS,
  • 00:32:56.150 --> 00:32:59.190
  • ALL THE WAY ACROSS TO THE EUPHRATES RIVER,
  • 00:32:59.210 --> 00:33:02.230
  • DOWN AND BACK ACROSS.
  • 00:33:02.250 --> 00:33:05.270
  • IT'S 50 TIMES THE SIZE OF MODERN DAY ISRAEL.
  • 00:33:05.290 --> 00:33:10.240
  • WHEN JESUS CHRIST COMES BACK TO EARTH, THE STATE
  • 00:33:10.260 --> 00:33:14.000
  • OF ISRAEL IS GOING TO BE MUCH MUCH LARGER.
  • 00:33:14.020 --> 00:33:19.170
  • THE CITY OF JERUSALEM IS GOING TO BE MASSIVE.
  • 00:33:19.190 --> 00:33:23.140
  • THERE'S GOING TO BE A GLOBAL EARTHQUAKE DURING
  • 00:33:23.160 --> 00:33:27.050
  • THE TRIBULATION THAT'S GOING TO LEVEL THE
  • 00:33:27.070 --> 00:33:31.120
  • MOUNTAINS AND THAT PLACE IS GOING TO BECOME THE
  • 00:33:31.140 --> 00:33:35.270
  • KINGDOM OF DAVID UPON WHICH JESUS CHRIST WILL
  • 00:33:35.290 --> 00:33:40.180
  • SIT ON THAT THRONE.
  • 00:33:40.200 --> 00:33:42.080
  • IT WILL BE A WONDERFUL THING IF WE COULD JUST
  • 00:33:42.100 --> 00:33:44.130
  • GET HAMAS, HEZBOLLAH AND IRAN TO SHUT UP AND LEAVE
  • 00:33:44.150 --> 00:33:47.290
  • THE JEWISH PEOPLE ALONE.
  • 00:33:48.010 --> 00:33:49.250
  • THAT WOULD BE A MIRACLE.
  • 00:33:49.270 --> 00:33:51.110
  • - OKAY BUT LOOK, LET'S JUST SAY THAT WE ALL
  • 00:33:51.130 --> 00:33:55.160
  • VOTED AND WE ELECTED YOU PRIME MINISTER OF THE
  • 00:33:55.180 --> 00:33:59.120
  • WORLD, AND YOU GOT TO SET BOUNDARIES.
  • 00:33:59.140 --> 00:34:03.150
  • ANYTHING SHORT OF SETTING THE BOUNDARIES OF ISRAEL
  • 00:34:03.170 --> 00:34:06.140
  • DIFFERENT THAN WHAT GOD SAID IS GONNA BE TROUBLE
  • 00:34:06.160 --> 00:34:10.220
  • BECAUSE YOU'RE KIND OF MESSING WITH WHAT GOD SAID.
  • 00:34:10.240 --> 00:34:12.260
  • AREN'T WE REALLY KIND OF STUCK IN KIND OF A WEIRD
  • 00:34:12.280 --> 00:34:17.090
  • SITUATION THAT MAYBE WAS EVEN PROPHESIED, BECAUSE
  • 00:34:17.110 --> 00:34:20.240
  • SOMEBODY THAT KIND OF COMES AND SETTLES THE
  • 00:34:20.260 --> 00:34:23.150
  • ISSUES TEMPORARILY ISN'T HE THE ANTICHRIST,
  • 00:34:23.170 --> 00:34:26.140
  • AND SO WHY ARE WE WORKING AGAINST OURSELVES
  • 00:34:26.160 --> 00:34:29.090
  • AND BIBLICALLY?
  • 00:34:29.110 --> 00:34:31.280
  • - THE IDEA ABOUT WHERE PEOPLE'S MINDSET IS TODAY
  • 00:34:32.000 --> 00:34:35.090
  • WHEN I WAS GIVING THE SPEECH BEFORE A GROUP OF
  • 00:34:35.110 --> 00:34:38.250
  • ABOUT 5.000 PEOPLE AND I SAID THE LAND OF ISRAEL
  • 00:34:38.270 --> 00:34:42.270
  • WAS GIVEN BY BLOOD COVENANT TO THE JEWISH
  • 00:34:42.290 --> 00:34:45.270
  • PEOPLE, AND THAT IS AN ETERNAL COVENANT, AND
  • 00:34:45.290 --> 00:34:50.030
  • IT'S AN UNBREAKABLE COVENANT, AND IT WILL
  • 00:34:50.050 --> 00:34:53.120
  • NEVER EVER BE TAKEN FROM THE JEWISH PEOPLE.
  • 00:34:53.140 --> 00:34:58.100
  • THIS LAND NEVER BELONGED TO THE PALESTINIANS.
  • 00:34:58.120 --> 00:35:02.160
  • THE RUMOR THAT THE PALESTINIANS OWNED THIS
  • 00:35:02.180 --> 00:35:07.090
  • LAND AT SOME TIME IS A HISTORICAL FARCE THAT
  • 00:35:07.110 --> 00:35:12.000
  • NEVER HAPPENED, BUT IT'S SOMETHING THAT WAS BEGUN
  • 00:35:12.020 --> 00:35:15.200
  • BY YASSER ARAFAT AND IT'S SOMETHING THAT HAS
  • 00:35:15.220 --> 00:35:18.220
  • GENERATED THE SECULAR MEDIA PICKED IT UP, AND
  • 00:35:18.240 --> 00:35:21.210
  • FOR NOW GENERATIONS IT HAS FABRICATED THE LIE
  • 00:35:21.230 --> 00:35:26.000
  • THAT SOMEHOW THESE PEOPLE HAVE A RIGHT TO THIS LAND.
  • 00:35:26.020 --> 00:35:29.280
  • THEY DON'T HAVE A RIGHT TO THAT LAND.
  • 00:35:30.000 --> 00:35:32.130
  • IT HAS FOREVER BELONGED TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE.
  • 00:35:32.150 --> 00:35:35.130
  • ARCHAEOLOGICAL DIGS ARE PROVING BEYOND ANY SHADOW
  • 00:35:35.150 --> 00:35:39.260
  • OF A DOUBT THAT FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS AGO,
  • 00:35:39.280 --> 00:35:44.240
  • THIS LAND BELONGED TO THE SEED OF ABRAHAM,
  • 00:35:44.260 --> 00:35:47.220
  • ISAAC AND JACOB.
  • 00:35:47.240 --> 00:35:49.140
  • IT WOULD BE A MIRACLE OF MIRACLES TO GET IRAN,
  • 00:35:49.160 --> 00:35:55.070
  • HAMAS AND HEZBOLLAH TO MAKE A PEACE ACCORD
  • 00:35:55.090 --> 00:35:58.290
  • WITH ISRAEL. ONLY GOD HIMSELF IS GOING TO BE ABLE
  • 00:35:59.010 --> 00:36:03.210
  • TO ESTABLISH ISRAEL AND ITS BIBLICAL BORDERS
  • 00:36:03.230 --> 00:36:08.280
  • THAT ARE GOING TO BE HUGE AND MASSIVE.
  • 00:36:09.000 --> 00:36:12.150
  • - SO YOU DON'T SEE THAT HAPPENING IN OUR LIFETIME?
  • 00:36:12.170 --> 00:36:15.080
  • - NO, I DO NOT.
  • 00:36:15.100 --> 00:36:16.280
  • I DO NOT SEE THAT HAPPENING UNTIL THE
  • 00:36:17.000 --> 00:36:18.190
  • SECOND COMING OF JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:36:18.210 --> 00:36:21.010
  • - OKAY. SO THE TEMPORARY PEACE ACCORD IS REALLY JUST
  • 00:36:21.030 --> 00:36:27.030
  • SOMETHING THAT GOD WARNED US ABOUT IN SCRIPTURE,
  • 00:36:27.050 --> 00:36:30.220
  • AND IT SETS THE NEXT PHASE OF BIBLICAL PROPHECY.
  • 00:36:30.240 --> 00:36:35.190
  • - LET ME TELL YOU HOW FAR AWAY THAT
  • 00:36:35.210 --> 00:36:37.080
  • PEACE ACCORD IS.
  • 00:36:37.100 --> 00:36:38.250
  • RIGHT NOW PRESIDENT TRUMP IS OFFERING A $50 BILLION
  • 00:36:38.270 --> 00:36:42.030
  • DOLLAR ECONOMIC STIMULUS TO THE PALESTINIANS, AND
  • 00:36:42.050 --> 00:36:47.110
  • HE HAS GATHERED THE PALESTINIAN LEADERS
  • 00:36:47.130 --> 00:36:50.030
  • TOGETHER, EVERYBODY BUT ABBAS, HE WON'T COME.
  • 00:36:50.050 --> 00:36:53.240
  • AND THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT WHAT COULD BE, HOW
  • 00:36:53.260 --> 00:36:57.270
  • IT WOULD STIMULATE THEIR ECONOMY, HOW IT WOULD
  • 00:36:57.290 --> 00:37:00.190
  • BRING JOBS, HOW THEY COULD BUILD NEW HOMES,
  • 00:37:00.210 --> 00:37:03.100
  • AND HAVE NEW HOSPITALS, AND HAVE NEW SCHOOLS, AND
  • 00:37:03.120 --> 00:37:06.280
  • WHAT THEY COULD HAVE HAD HAD THEY TAKEN ALL THE
  • 00:37:07.000 --> 00:37:09.120
  • FOREIGN AID MONEY THAT AMERICA'S ALREADY GIVEN
  • 00:37:09.140 --> 00:37:12.150
  • THEM, BUT THE LEADER OF THE PALESTINIANS, ABBAS,
  • 00:37:12.170 --> 00:37:20.200
  • HE'S NOT COMING TO THAT BECAUSE THE MOMENT THAT
  • 00:37:20.220 --> 00:37:24.030
  • HE SURRENDERS HIS LEADERSHIP ROLE TO
  • 00:37:24.050 --> 00:37:29.150
  • ANOTHER BODY, HE CANNOT CONTROL THE FOREIGN AID
  • 00:37:29.170 --> 00:37:33.120
  • THAT'S COMING TO THE PALESTINIANS.
  • 00:37:33.140 --> 00:37:36.080
  • HE AND HIS TWO SONS ARE TAKING A HUGE CUT
  • 00:37:36.100 --> 00:37:40.130
  • OF THAT MONEY.
  • 00:37:40.150 --> 00:37:42.000
  • THEY HAVE BECOME MULTI-MILLIONAIRES PUTTING
  • 00:37:42.020 --> 00:37:44.080
  • SOME OF THAT MONEY FOR THEMSELVES IN EUROPEAN
  • 00:37:44.100 --> 00:37:46.170
  • BANKS, AND THE PALESTINIAN PEOPLE ARE LIVING
  • 00:37:46.190 --> 00:37:49.150
  • ON BREAD AND WATER.
  • 00:37:49.170 --> 00:37:53.160
  • THE PALESTINIAN PEOPLE ARE ABUSED.
  • 00:37:53.180 --> 00:37:56.090
  • THEY HAVE BEEN HARSHLY TREATED, BUT THEY'VE BEEN
  • 00:37:56.110 --> 00:38:00.070
  • HARSHLY TREATED BY THEIR OWN LEADERS WHO TREAT THEM
  • 00:38:00.090 --> 00:38:03.200
  • LIKE DIRT.
  • 00:38:03.220 --> 00:38:05.150
  • - YOU WANT TO FOLLOW THAT UP A LITTLE BIT?
  • 00:38:05.170 --> 00:38:07.100
  • - YEAH, I THINK AN INTERESTING POINT ABOUT THIS
  • 00:38:07.120 --> 00:38:08.280
  • IS THAT PALESTINIAN LEADERSHIP IS SO DISJOINTED
  • 00:38:09.000 --> 00:38:13.010
  • AND JUST MESSED UP, NOT READY FOR PEACE CLEARLY, BUT
  • 00:38:13.030 --> 00:38:16.130
  • AN INTERESTING DYNAMIC, MATT, IS EMERGING ACROSS THE
  • 00:38:16.150 --> 00:38:19.020
  • REGION WHERE THE SUNNI ARAB NATIONS -- THE SAUDIS, THE
  • 00:38:19.040 --> 00:38:23.250
  • GULF STATES, JORDAN, EGYPT -- ARE CLEAVING
  • 00:38:23.270 --> 00:38:26.180
  • CLOSER TO ISRAEL.
  • 00:38:26.200 --> 00:38:28.200
  • THEY'RE SAYING LOOK, THE PALESTINIAN ISSUE, THAT'S ON
  • 00:38:28.220 --> 00:38:31.100
  • THE BACK BURNER FOR NOW.
  • 00:38:31.120 --> 00:38:32.290
  • AND THE REASON THEY'RE GETTING CLOSER TO ISRAEL --
  • 00:38:33.010 --> 00:38:34.260
  • THIS IS UNPRECEDENTED -- THE SUNNI MUSLIM NATIONS THAT
  • 00:38:34.280 --> 00:38:36.290
  • ISRAEL WAS AT WAR WITH, THEY'RE GETTING CLOSER TO
  • 00:38:37.010 --> 00:38:39.030
  • ISRAEL FOR TWO REASONS.
  • 00:38:39.050 --> 00:38:40.290
  • NUMBER ONE, BECAUSE ISRAEL, AS WE MENTIONED, IS A
  • 00:38:41.010 --> 00:38:43.030
  • BOOMING ECONOMIC AND TECHNOLOGICAL POWER HOUSE.
  • 00:38:43.050 --> 00:38:45.240
  • IT'S BLESSING THE WORLD.
  • 00:38:45.260 --> 00:38:47.200
  • WHY ISN'T IT BLESS ITS NEIGHBORS?
  • 00:38:47.220 --> 00:38:49.050
  • NUMBER TWO, AGAIN, IRAN.
  • 00:38:49.070 --> 00:38:51.240
  • I CAN TELL YOU, MATT, THE SUNNI MUSLIM NATIONS ARE
  • 00:38:51.260 --> 00:38:54.170
  • PETRIFIED OF THAT GROWING IRANIAN SHIA SUPER POWER
  • 00:38:54.190 --> 00:38:59.040
  • THAT'S MARCHING ACROSS THE REGION THAT HAS HEZBOLLAH
  • 00:38:59.060 --> 00:39:01.190
  • AND HAMAS AT ITS DISPOSAL AS PROXIES.
  • 00:39:01.210 --> 00:39:05.000
  • THE SAUDIS, THE JORDANIANS, THE EGYPTIANS, THE GULF
  • 00:39:05.020 --> 00:39:07.170
  • STATES, DUBAI AND ALL THE REST, LOOK AT THAT AND SAY,
  • 00:39:07.190 --> 00:39:10.000
  • YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:39:10.020 --> 00:39:12.040
  • ISRAEL DOESN'T LOOK SO BAD RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:39:12.060 --> 00:39:13.290
  • THE ENEMY OF MY ENEMY IS MY FRIEND.
  • 00:39:14.010 --> 00:39:15.170
  • SO IT'S A VERY INTERESTING DYNAMIC WHERE THE
  • 00:39:15.190 --> 00:39:17.220
  • PALESTINIAN STATE, WHICH HAS TAKEN A BACK SEAT IN THE
  • 00:39:17.240 --> 00:39:19.250
  • MINDS OF MUSLIM ROLLERS WHO ARE MUCH MORE CONCERNED
  • 00:39:19.270 --> 00:39:22.250
  • ABOUT IRAN.
  • 00:39:22.270 --> 00:39:24.140
  • THAT'S WHY, MATT, YOU DIDN'T SEE WIDE-SPREAD PROTESTS
  • 00:39:24.160 --> 00:39:27.000
  • AROUND THE ARAB WORLD WHEN THE EMBASSY MOVED TO
  • 00:39:27.020 --> 00:39:29.070
  • JERUSALEM, THE U.S.
  • 00:39:29.090 --> 00:39:31.050
  • EMBASSY, BECAUSE THEY'RE SAYING, YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:39:31.070 --> 00:39:32.280
  • THE BIGGER ISSUE IS IRAN.
  • 00:39:33.000 --> 00:39:34.290
  • THAT'S WHAT THEY ARE FOCUSED ON, NOT A PALESTINIAN STATE.
  • 00:39:35.010 --> 00:39:38.060
  • IT SEEMS LIKE THE WEST ARE THE ONES OBSESSED WITH
  • 00:39:38.080 --> 00:39:41.030
  • PALESTINIAN STATEHOOD AND NOT THE MUSLIM
  • 00:39:41.050 --> 00:39:43.110
  • NATIONS IN THE REGION.
  • 00:39:43.130 --> 00:39:45.050
  • - HOW WOULD YOU FIX THINGS IF THIS ADMINISTRATION AND
  • 00:39:45.070 --> 00:39:48.280
  • THE ISRAELI ADMINISTRATIONS BOTH CALLED YOU INTO A
  • 00:39:49.000 --> 00:39:53.040
  • MEETING AND SAID, JOHN HAGEE, FIX THIS.
  • 00:39:53.060 --> 00:39:56.020
  • HOW DO YOU FIX THE MIDDLE EAST?
  • 00:39:56.040 --> 00:39:58.150
  • - I'D IMMEDIATELY TAKE ABBAS AND HIS TWO BOYS AND
  • 00:39:58.170 --> 00:40:00.200
  • SEND THEM TO EUROPE, AND THEN I WOULD SET UP A CIVIL
  • 00:40:00.220 --> 00:40:03.100
  • GOVERNMENT THAT'S ACCEPTABLE TO THE PALESTINIAN
  • 00:40:03.120 --> 00:40:09.050
  • PEOPLE BY POPULAR VOTE.
  • 00:40:09.070 --> 00:40:12.060
  • AND I WOULD LET THEM HAVE THE PALESTINIAN ZONE.
  • 00:40:12.080 --> 00:40:17.290
  • - CONTROLLED BY ISRAEL?
  • 00:40:18.010 --> 00:40:20.190
  • - WELL, IT WOULDN'T BE CONTROLLED BY ISRAEL.
  • 00:40:20.210 --> 00:40:23.120
  • IT WOULD BE CONTROLLED BY THE PALESTINIANS, BUT THEY
  • 00:40:23.140 --> 00:40:26.190
  • WOULD HAVE TO LIVE BY A COVENANT OF ABSOLUTE PEACE
  • 00:40:26.210 --> 00:40:34.050
  • AND HARMONY WITH ISRAEL AND THE JEWISH PEOPLE.
  • 00:40:34.070 --> 00:40:36.270
  • AND AS LONG AS ABBAS IS IN THE MIX, THE PEACE TREATY,
  • 00:40:36.290 --> 00:40:42.060
  • YOU CAN KISS IT GOODBYE.
  • 00:40:42.080 --> 00:40:45.120
  • - I AGREE ONE HUNDRED PERCENT.
  • 00:40:45.140 --> 00:40:47.050
  • NOT A PARTNER FOR PEACE, AND HAMAS, OF COURSE, COMPLETE
  • 00:40:47.070 --> 00:40:49.130
  • NON-STARTER OUT OF GAZA.
  • 00:40:49.150 --> 00:40:51.220
  • - NO TWO STATES. THAT DOESN'T FIX ANYTHING.
  • 00:40:51.240 --> 00:40:54.230
  • - NO. - OKAY.
  • 00:40:54.250 --> 00:40:56.080
  • - UNTIL THE PALESTINIANS ARE READY TO LAY DOWN THEIR
  • 00:40:56.100 --> 00:40:59.030
  • ARMS AND RECOGNIZE ISRAEL'S RIGHT TO EXIST.
  • 00:40:59.050 --> 00:41:01.250
  • THE PALESTINIAN LEADERSHIP, WE DON'T HAVE THAT IN
  • 00:41:01.270 --> 00:41:04.000
  • ABBAS, AND WE DON'T HAVE IT IN HAMAS.
  • 00:41:04.020 --> 00:41:06.050
  • - SO UNTIL THAT HAPPENS, IT JUST STAYS THE WAY IT IS.
  • 00:41:06.070 --> 00:41:10.280
  • - YOU HAVE TO ASK YOURSELF THE QUESTION
  • 00:41:11.000 --> 00:41:14.100
  • CONCERNING STATEHOOD.
  • 00:41:14.120 --> 00:41:17.280
  • WHAT HAVE THE PALESTINIANS EVER DONE TO PROVE THAT THEY
  • 00:41:18.000 --> 00:41:23.040
  • CAN GOVERN THEMSELVES?
  • 00:41:23.060 --> 00:41:25.150
  • ALL THEY'VE BEEN ABLE TO PROVE IS THAT THEY ARE
  • 00:41:25.170 --> 00:41:29.080
  • CERTIFIED TERRORISTS.
  • 00:41:29.100 --> 00:41:31.100
  • THEY KNOW HOW TO BOMB AND BLOW UP THINGS. THEY
  • 00:41:31.120 --> 00:41:33.240
  • KNOW HOW TO PROTEST.
  • 00:41:33.260 --> 00:41:36.210
  • THEY KNOW HOW TO SNEAK INTO ISRAEL AND STAB TOURISTS,
  • 00:41:36.230 --> 00:41:40.150
  • BLOW UP BUSES.
  • 00:41:40.170 --> 00:41:42.120
  • THEY'VE NEVER DONE ANYTHING TO PROVE THAT THEY CAN
  • 00:41:42.140 --> 00:41:45.150
  • GOVERN THEMSELVES, AND BECAUSE OF A HISTORY OF
  • 00:41:45.170 --> 00:41:52.140
  • DICTATORSHIPS OVER THE PALESTINIAN PEOPLE BEGINNING
  • 00:41:52.160 --> 00:41:57.110
  • WITH YASSIR ARAFAT AND NOW ABBAS AND HIS TWO SONS, THEY
  • 00:41:57.130 --> 00:42:03.060
  • HAVE LIVED UNDER THE IRON BOOT OF A DICTATOR FOR
  • 00:42:03.080 --> 00:42:08.050
  • DECADES, AND UNTIL THE UNITED STATES USES ITS MIND
  • 00:42:08.070 --> 00:42:16.010
  • AND MUSCLE TO GET THAT DICTATOR OUT OF THE MIX, ALL
  • 00:42:16.030 --> 00:42:20.160
  • OF THE DIPLOMACY IN THE WORLD IS NOT GOING TO WORK
  • 00:42:20.180 --> 00:42:23.270
  • BECAUSE ABBAS JUST REFUSES TO GIVE UP THAT SUGAR MONEY
  • 00:42:23.290 --> 00:42:28.260
  • HE'S GETTING FROM THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT THAT HE'S
  • 00:42:28.280 --> 00:42:31.270
  • NOT GIVING TO THE PALESTINIAN PEOPLE.
  • 00:42:31.290 --> 00:42:35.020
  • - SO IF YOU'RE IN THE ROOM WITH THE AMERICAN
  • 00:42:35.040 --> 00:42:38.180
  • ADMINISTRATION AND THE JEWISH ADMINISTRATION,
  • 00:42:38.200 --> 00:42:41.130
  • THEY'RE ASKING YOU WHAT TO DO, YOU FIRST TAKE HIM OUT?
  • 00:42:41.150 --> 00:42:44.220
  • - MOVE HIM OUT. SEND HIM TO EUROPE. SEND HIM ANYWHERE.
  • 00:42:44.240 --> 00:42:50.070
  • GET HIM OUT OF THE--
  • 00:42:50.090 --> 00:42:52.190
  • - LEADERSHIP OF THE PALESTINIANS?
  • 00:42:52.210 --> 00:42:55.000
  • - LEADERSHIP CIRCLE AND GET HIM OUT OF COMMUNICATION
  • 00:42:55.020 --> 00:42:58.220
  • WITH THE HENCHMAN THAT THEY'VE SET IN PLACE.
  • 00:42:58.240 --> 00:43:03.160
  • THINK OF ABBAS AND HIS SONS AS MAFIA DONS CONTROLLING A
  • 00:43:03.180 --> 00:43:08.090
  • PART OF NEW YORK, AND THEY HAVE THEIR BLOCK CAPTAINS,
  • 00:43:08.110 --> 00:43:13.150
  • AND THEY HAVE THEIR TOUGH GUYS THAT KEEP PEOPLE IN
  • 00:43:13.170 --> 00:43:17.230
  • LINE WITH BRUTAL FORCE.
  • 00:43:17.250 --> 00:43:20.140
  • YOU HAVE TO GET THOSE CANCEROUS PEOPLE OUT, AND
  • 00:43:20.160 --> 00:43:24.180
  • THEN GIVE THE PALESTINIAN PEOPLE A CHANCE.
  • 00:43:24.200 --> 00:43:28.150
  • JUST YESTERDAY IN THE DAILY REPORT, 60% OF THE
  • 00:43:28.170 --> 00:43:32.150
  • PALESTINIANS VOTED THAT THEY THEMSELVES SHOULD BE ABLE TO
  • 00:43:32.170 --> 00:43:37.070
  • RULE THEMSELVES, BUT THEY'RE NOT EVER GOING TO GET THAT
  • 00:43:37.090 --> 00:43:42.150
  • CHANCE AS LONG AS ABBAS IS SITTING IN THAT SEAT.
  • 00:43:42.170 --> 00:43:45.100
  • - LET'S MOVE TO THE NATIONAL SECURITY
  • 00:43:45.120 --> 00:43:47.150
  • ADVISOR JOHN BOLTON.
  • 00:43:47.170 --> 00:43:49.100
  • WHAT DO WE NEED TO KNOW ABOUT HIS ADDRESS THAT WE'LL
  • 00:43:49.120 --> 00:43:51.190
  • SEE RIGHT HERE ON THIS BROADCAST?
  • 00:43:51.210 --> 00:43:54.020
  • - JOHN BOLTON IS A BRILLIANT SCHOLAR
  • 00:43:54.040 --> 00:43:57.200
  • OF THE WORLD.
  • 00:43:57.220 --> 00:44:00.130
  • HE'S SPOKEN AT OUR CHURCH FOR A COUPLE OF OCCASIONS
  • 00:44:00.150 --> 00:44:05.190
  • FOR OUR NIGHTS TO HONOR ISRAEL.
  • 00:44:05.210 --> 00:44:08.000
  • HE'S A PERSON THAT HAS GREAT INSIGHT TO THE INNER
  • 00:44:08.020 --> 00:44:13.050
  • WORKINGS OF OTHER NATIONS, AND THE PRESIDENT IS
  • 00:44:13.070 --> 00:44:17.250
  • WELL-ADVISED TO HAVE THIS BRILLIANT MAN AT HIS
  • 00:44:17.270 --> 00:44:22.120
  • DISPOSAL, ESPECIALLY AT A CRISIS TIME LIKE THIS.
  • 00:44:22.140 --> 00:44:26.220
  • HE IS ROCK SOLID. HE IS TOP QUALITY.
  • 00:44:26.240 --> 00:44:31.160
  • HE IS A LOVER OF AMERICA AND DEMOCRACY AND A SUPPORTER OF
  • 00:44:31.180 --> 00:44:36.040
  • THE JEWISH PEOPLE.
  • 00:44:36.060 --> 00:44:38.170
  • WE JUST COULDN'T DO BETTER THAN JOHN BOLTON RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:44:38.190 --> 00:44:40.190
  • - WHAT WAS JOHN'S ISSUE TODAY IN HIS ADDRESS THAT WE
  • 00:44:40.210 --> 00:44:44.110
  • NEED TO BE THINKING ABOUT?
  • 00:44:44.130 --> 00:44:47.180
  • - YOU KNOW, WE SOUND LIKE WE'RE BEATING A DEAD HORSE,
  • 00:44:47.200 --> 00:44:49.120
  • MATT, BUT IRAN.
  • 00:44:49.140 --> 00:44:51.060
  • PASTOR HAGEE, YOU LAID IT OUT VERY ELOQUENTLY.
  • 00:44:51.080 --> 00:44:52.290
  • THE IRANIAN REGIME -- AND MATT, I THINK A POINT FOR
  • 00:44:53.010 --> 00:44:54.270
  • OUR VIEWERS TO MAKE CLEAR -- YES, IRAN THREATENS THE
  • 00:44:54.290 --> 00:44:57.280
  • EXISTENCE OF ISRAEL, BUT IN THAT IRANIAN IDEOLOGY,
  • 00:44:58.000 --> 00:45:01.220
  • THEY REFER TO AMERICA AS THE GREAT SATAN.
  • 00:45:01.240 --> 00:45:04.250
  • ISRAEL IS ONLY THE LITTLE SATAN IN THEIR MIND,
  • 00:45:04.270 --> 00:45:07.030
  • IN THEIR WORDS.
  • 00:45:07.050 --> 00:45:08.280
  • THEY REFER TO US AS THE GREAT SATAN, AMERICA.
  • 00:45:09.000 --> 00:45:10.140
  • THE UNITED STATES IS THE ULTIMATE PRIZE IN THE EYES
  • 00:45:10.160 --> 00:45:12.250
  • OF THE IRANIAN REGIME.
  • 00:45:12.270 --> 00:45:14.130
  • AND, MATT, AS WE LAY IT OUT, THEY'RE ENRICHING URANIUM
  • 00:45:14.150 --> 00:45:16.190
  • NOW WITH THE GOAL OF ACQUIRING NUCLEAR WEAPONS,
  • 00:45:16.210 --> 00:45:18.280
  • BUT NOT ONLY THAT.
  • 00:45:19.000 --> 00:45:20.160
  • THEY'RE DEVELOPING LONG-RANGE INTERCONTINENTAL
  • 00:45:20.180 --> 00:45:23.070
  • BALLISTIC MISSILES.
  • 00:45:23.090 --> 00:45:25.000
  • THEY DO EXACTLY WHAT THE NAME SAYS.
  • 00:45:25.020 --> 00:45:26.180
  • THEY'RE DESIGNED TO TRAVEL ACROSS OCEANS,
  • 00:45:26.200 --> 00:45:28.030
  • ACROSS CONTINENTS.
  • 00:45:28.050 --> 00:45:29.220
  • THOSE MISSILES AREN'T FOR ISRAEL.
  • 00:45:29.240 --> 00:45:31.110
  • THEY'RE NOT EVEN FOR EUROPE.
  • 00:45:31.130 --> 00:45:32.270
  • THEY'RE FOR US IN THE UNITED STATES.
  • 00:45:32.290 --> 00:45:34.110
  • THAT'S WHAT IRAN'S ALL ABOUT.
  • 00:45:34.130 --> 00:45:35.270
  • WE NEED TO UNDERSTAND THE IDEOLOGY.
  • 00:45:35.290 --> 00:45:37.180
  • THE FIRST RULE OF WAR, KNOW YOUR ENEMY.
  • 00:45:37.200 --> 00:45:39.290
  • NOW, THE IRANIAN REGIME UNDERSTANDS US.
  • 00:45:40.010 --> 00:45:42.220
  • THEY KNOW US VERY WELL, BUT DO WE UNDERSTAND WHAT
  • 00:45:42.240 --> 00:45:44.140
  • THEY'RE ALL ABOUT?
  • 00:45:44.160 --> 00:45:46.030
  • BECAUSE WHEN THE MULLAHS IN IRAN ARE TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:45:46.050 --> 00:45:48.030
  • WIPING ISRAEL AND AMERICA OFF THE MAP, IT'S NOT JUST
  • 00:45:48.050 --> 00:45:50.190
  • RHETORIC OR BLUSTER FOR DOMESTIC CONSUMPTION.
  • 00:45:50.210 --> 00:45:53.220
  • THEY REALLY MEAN IT, AND IF THE 20TH CENTURY, THE
  • 00:45:53.240 --> 00:45:55.170
  • CENTURY OF HITLER, STALIN, MAO, SADAAM, TAUGHT US
  • 00:45:55.190 --> 00:45:59.200
  • ANYTHING, IT'S THAT WHEN EVIL MEN TELL YOU THEY WANT
  • 00:45:59.220 --> 00:46:02.110
  • TO KILL YOU, YOU SHOULD LISTEN TO THEM AND TAKE
  • 00:46:02.130 --> 00:46:04.100
  • THEM AT THEIR WORD.
  • 00:46:04.120 --> 00:46:06.280
  • - NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISOR JOHN BOLTON RIGHT HERE AT
  • 00:46:07.000 --> 00:46:09.210
  • CUFI NATIONAL CONVENTION.
  • 00:46:09.230 --> 00:46:11.220
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:46:11.240 --> 00:46:19.230
  • - AS THE PRESIDENT HAS SAID, THE UNITED STATES
  • 00:46:19.250 --> 00:46:22.040
  • SUPPORTS ISRAEL'S ABSOLUTE RIGHT TO SELF DEFENSE, AND
  • 00:46:22.060 --> 00:46:27.040
  • ANY FUTURE PEACE AGREEMENT MUST ACCOUNT FOR ISRAEL'S
  • 00:46:27.060 --> 00:46:31.190
  • NEED TO PROTECT ITS PEOPLE FROM SYRIA, IRAN AND OTHER
  • 00:46:31.210 --> 00:46:34.270
  • REGIONAL THREATS.
  • 00:46:34.290 --> 00:46:37.000
  • PEACE IN THE MIDDLE EAST NEED NOT COME AT THE EXPENSE
  • 00:46:37.020 --> 00:46:40.240
  • OF AMERICAN MORAL COURAGE OR ISRAELI SECURITY.

  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:46:44.280 --> 00:46:47.170
  • FOR THIS REASON, PRESIDENT TRUMP ALSO RECOGNIZED
  • 00:46:47.190 --> 00:46:50.120
  • JERUSALEM AS THE CAPITOL OF ISRAEL.
  • 00:46:50.140 --> 00:46:53.160

  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:47:11.200 --> 00:47:14.050
  • NAY SAYERS HAVE TOLD GENERATIONS OF PRESIDENTS
  • 00:47:14.070 --> 00:47:16.180
  • THAT THESE ACTIONS WOULD ACTUALLY ISOLATE ISRAEL AND
  • 00:47:16.200 --> 00:47:20.060
  • POTENTIALLY INSIGHT VIOLENCE AGAINST BOTH ISRAEL AND THE
  • 00:47:20.080 --> 00:47:23.140
  • UNITED STATES, BUT PRESIDENT TRUMP SAW THINGS
  • 00:47:23.160 --> 00:47:26.250
  • DIFFERENTLY, AND WE HAVE ALL SEEN THE RESULTS.
  • 00:47:26.270 --> 00:47:30.020
  • A YEAR AFTER OUR NEW EMBASSY OPENED IN JERUSALEM, ISRAEL
  • 00:47:30.040 --> 00:47:33.130

  • IN THE MIDDLE EAST.
  • 00:48:11.040 --> 00:48:13.000
  • THE JEWISH PEOPLE HAVE A PLACE AMONG US."

  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:48:15.140 --> 00:48:23.090
  • ALL OF THIS IS THE RESULT OF FULL, UNCONDITIONAL
  • 00:48:23.110 --> 00:48:27.130
  • AND UNAPOLOGETIC SUPPORT FOR ISRAEL.
  • 00:48:27.150 --> 00:48:30.050
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:48:30.070 --> 00:48:36.190
  • IN MAY OF LAST YEAR, WE ACHIEVED YET ANOTHER MAJOR
  • 00:48:36.210 --> 00:48:39.250
  • SUCCESS IN THE MIDDLE EAST.
  • 00:48:39.270 --> 00:48:42.030

  • AMERICAN HISTORY.

  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:49:01.110 --> 00:49:07.090
  • A LITTLE OVER A YEAR AGO, OUR CRITICS PREDICTED WE
  • 00:49:07.110 --> 00:49:09.240
  • COULDN'T DO IT.
  • 00:49:09.260 --> 00:49:11.220
  • OUR UNILATERAL SANCTIONS, THEY SAID, WOULD
  • 00:49:11.240 --> 00:49:13.190
  • NOT BE EFFECTIVE.
  • 00:49:13.210 --> 00:49:15.110
  • SINCE THEN, THE UNITED STATES HAS LEVIED THE
  • 00:49:15.130 --> 00:49:17.120
  • TOUGHEST-EVER SANCTIONS ON THE IRANIAN REGIME, AND
  • 00:49:17.140 --> 00:49:20.240
  • IRAN'S ECONOMY IS, TO QUOTE THE FINANCIAL TIMES,
  • 00:49:20.260 --> 00:49:23.020
  • COLLAPSING UNDER THEIR WEIGHT.
  • 00:49:23.040 --> 00:49:26.000
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:49:26.020 --> 00:49:32.110
  • THE ISLAMIC REVOLUTIONARY GUARD'S CORE, OR I.R.G.C.,
  • 00:49:32.130 --> 00:49:35.210
  • IS STARTING TO HAVE TO CUT SALARIES IN SUPPORT FOR
  • 00:49:35.230 --> 00:49:38.110
  • PROXIES ACROSS THE REGION LEAVING THEM TO LAMENT THE
  • 00:49:38.130 --> 00:49:41.070
  • GOLDEN DAYS ARE GONE, AND WILL NEVER RETURN.
  • 00:49:41.090 --> 00:49:45.080
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:49:45.100 --> 00:49:50.030
  • AND WE ARE JUST GETTING STARTED.
  • 00:49:50.050 --> 00:49:52.080
  • IN NOVEMBER, WE FINISHED REIMPOSING THE CRIPPLING
  • 00:49:52.100 --> 00:49:54.240
  • SANCTIONS THAT HAD ORIGINALLY BROUGHT TEHRAN TO
  • 00:49:54.260 --> 00:49:58.050
  • THE NEGOTIATING TABLE, BUT WE DID NOT STOP THERE.
  • 00:49:58.070 --> 00:50:01.230
  • THE PRESIDENT'S GOAL IS TO GET A NEW DEAL THAT WOULD BE
  • 00:50:01.250 --> 00:50:04.250
  • NEGOTIATED IN THE BEST INTEREST OF
  • 00:50:04.270 --> 00:50:06.240
  • THE UNITED STATES.
  • 00:50:06.260 --> 00:50:09.000
  • WE HAVE ALSO DESIGNATED THE I.R.G.C.
  • 00:50:09.020 --> 00:50:11.210
  • AS A FOREIGN TERRORIST ORGANIZATION.
  • 00:50:11.230 --> 00:50:14.260
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:50:14.280 --> 00:50:20.230
  • THIS IS THE FIRST TIME AN ELEMENT OF A FOREIGN
  • 00:50:20.250 --> 00:50:23.140
  • GOVERNMENT HAS BEEN DESIGNATED AS A FOREIGN
  • 00:50:23.160 --> 00:50:26.010
  • TERRORIST ORGANIZATION.
  • 00:50:26.030 --> 00:50:28.120
  • IT WILL MAKE IT HARDER FOR ANYONE AFFILIATED WITH THE
  • 00:50:28.140 --> 00:50:30.100
  • I.R.G.C. TO ENTER OUR GREAT COUNTRY.
  • 00:50:30.120 --> 00:50:32.280
  • ALSO MAKES IT A CRIME FOR INDIVIDUALS, COMPANIES, OR
  • 00:50:33.000 --> 00:50:36.100
  • INSTITUTIONS TO DO BUSINESS WITH THIS
  • 00:50:36.120 --> 00:50:38.180
  • VILE TERRORIST GROUP.
  • 00:50:38.200 --> 00:50:41.000
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:50:41.020 --> 00:50:47.140
  • ON THE ANNIVERSARY OF PRESIDENT TRUMP'S WITHDRAWAL
  • 00:50:47.160 --> 00:50:49.260
  • FROM THE IRAN NUCLEAR DEAL, ALL OF THE WAIVERS THAT HAD
  • 00:50:49.280 --> 00:50:53.150
  • BEEN GRANTED ON IRANIAN OIL SALES HAVE GONE TO ZERO.
  • 00:50:53.170 --> 00:50:57.160
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:50:57.180 --> 00:51:02.040
  • THIS ACTION IS CHOKING OFF IRAN'S SINGLE GREATEST
  • 00:51:02.060 --> 00:51:05.120
  • SOURCE OF FUNDING.
  • 00:51:05.140 --> 00:51:07.100
  • LIKE THE I.R.G.C.
  • 00:51:07.120 --> 00:51:09.200
  • TERRORIST DESIGNATION, THIS IS AN UNPRECEDENTED STEP
  • 00:51:09.220 --> 00:51:13.140
  • AIMED AT PUTTING MAXIMUM PRESSURE ON TEHRAN TO CHANGE
  • 00:51:13.160 --> 00:51:17.100
  • ITS THREATENING BEHAVIOR.
  • 00:51:17.120 --> 00:51:19.160
  • WE WELCOME THE ACTION BY THE BRITISH ROYAL MARINES ON THE
  • 00:51:19.180 --> 00:51:24.250
  • FOURTH OF JULY, NO LESS, TO ENFORCE E.U.
  • 00:51:24.270 --> 00:51:29.010
  • SANCTIONS ON SYRIA BY SEIZING A SUPER TANKER WITH
  • 00:51:29.030 --> 00:51:32.200
  • MILLIONS OF BARRELS OF IRANIAN OIL OFF GIBRALTAR.
  • 00:51:32.220 --> 00:51:37.040
  • ACTIONS SUCH AS THIS TO DISRUPT SANCTIONS EVASION
  • 00:51:37.060 --> 00:51:40.040
  • ARE CRITICAL TO DENYING BOTH THE SYRIAN AND IRANIAN
  • 00:51:40.060 --> 00:51:43.250
  • REGIMES THE FINANCIAL RESOURCES THEY
  • 00:51:43.270 --> 00:51:46.080
  • DESPERATELY NEED.
  • 00:51:46.100 --> 00:51:48.090
  • WE MUST REDOUBLE OUR COOPERATION WITH OUR ALLIES
  • 00:51:48.110 --> 00:51:51.210
  • AND PARTNERS TO ENFORCE OUR SANCTIONS AND ENFORCE
  • 00:51:51.230 --> 00:51:54.090
  • FREEDOM OF NAVIGATION.
  • 00:51:54.110 --> 00:51:57.120
  • WE ARE CRACKING DOWN ON OTHER SECTORS OF THE IRANIAN
  • 00:51:57.140 --> 00:52:01.100
  • ECONOMY SUCH AS METALS AND PETRO CHEMICALS THAT TEHRAN
  • 00:52:01.120 --> 00:52:04.140
  • WAS BANKING ON DIVERSIFY THEIR REVENUE STREAMS.
  • 00:52:04.160 --> 00:52:09.050
  • THE ANTICIPATED FLOOD OF FOREIGN INVESTMENT INTO IRAN
  • 00:52:09.070 --> 00:52:13.100
  • HAS UTTERLY FAILED TO MATERIALIZE AS PRIVATE
  • 00:52:13.120 --> 00:52:16.170
  • COMPANIES MAKE THE OBVIOUS CALCULATION THAT
  • 00:52:16.190 --> 00:52:19.220
  • IRAN IS A BAD BET.
  • 00:52:19.240 --> 00:52:22.170
  • AND AS I SAID EARLIER THIS YEAR IN MIAMI, UNDER THIS
  • 00:52:22.190 --> 00:52:25.060
  • ADMINISTRATION, NO REGIME THAT CHANTS "DEATH TO
  • 00:52:25.080 --> 00:52:29.010
  • AMERICA" OR "DEATH TO ISRAEL" WILL GET A DEAL FROM
  • 00:52:29.030 --> 00:52:32.060
  • THIS ADMINISTRATION.
  • 00:52:32.080 --> 00:52:34.050
  • [AUDIENCE CHEERING]
  • 00:52:34.070 --> 00:52:38.230
  • WE WILL CONTINUE TO INCREASE THE PRESSURE ON THE IRANIAN
  • 00:52:38.250 --> 00:52:41.060
  • REGIME UNTIL IT ABANDONS ITS NUCLEAR WEAPONS PROGRAM AND
  • 00:52:41.080 --> 00:52:45.080
  • ENDS ITS VIOLENT ACTIVITIES ACROSS THE MIDDLE EAST,
  • 00:52:45.100 --> 00:52:48.250
  • INCLUDING CONDUCTING AND SUPPORTING TERRORISM
  • 00:52:48.270 --> 00:52:51.130
  • AROUND THE WORLD.
  • 00:52:51.150 --> 00:52:53.180
  • TEHRAN'S CONTINUED PURSUIT OF A NUCLEAR PROGRAM,
  • 00:52:53.200 --> 00:52:56.210
  • INCLUDING RECENT INCREASES IN URANIUM STOCKPILES AND
  • 00:52:56.230 --> 00:53:00.120
  • ENRICHMENT LEVELS, IS INDIRECT VIOLATION OF ITS
  • 00:53:00.140 --> 00:53:04.010
  • COMMITMENTS UNDER THE NUCLEAR DEAL.
  • 00:53:04.030 --> 00:53:06.110
  • IT'S CERTAINLY A GRAVE THREAT TO INTERNATIONAL
  • 00:53:06.130 --> 00:53:09.060
  • PEACE AND SECURITY THAT THE DEAL WAS
  • 00:53:09.080 --> 00:53:11.060
  • SUPPOSED TO PRESERVE.
  • 00:53:11.080 --> 00:53:13.120
  • GIVEN IRAN'S DOCUMENTED HISTORY OF PURSUING A
  • 00:53:13.140 --> 00:53:16.110
  • NUCLEAR WEAPON, THESE ACTIONS UNDERSCORE THE
  • 00:53:16.130 --> 00:53:19.140
  • SERIOUSNESS OF IRAN'S ONGOING NUCLEAR AMBITIONS.
  • 00:53:19.160 --> 00:53:23.160
  • PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS BEEN CLEAR.
  • 00:53:23.180 --> 00:53:26.080
  • HE WILL NOT ALLOW IRAN ANY PATH TO NUCLEAR WEAPONS.
  • 00:53:26.100 --> 00:53:31.040
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:53:31.060 --> 00:53:34.050
  • AS WE PRESSURE THE IRANIAN REGIME, WE ALSO CONTINUE TO
  • 00:53:34.070 --> 00:53:37.150
  • STAND WITH THE LONGSUFFERING IRANIAN PEOPLE WHO, AS
  • 00:53:37.170 --> 00:53:40.250
  • PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS SAID, ARE THE RIGHTFUL HEIRS TO A
  • 00:53:40.270 --> 00:53:43.220
  • RICH CULTURE AND AN ANCIENT LAND.
  • 00:53:43.240 --> 00:53:47.080
  • IN EVERY REGION OF THE WORLD, THE UNITED STATES
  • 00:53:47.100 --> 00:53:50.090
  • SEEKS PARTNERS WHO ARE STRONG, SOVEREIGN,
  • 00:53:50.110 --> 00:53:52.100
  • AND INDEPENDENT.
  • 00:53:52.120 --> 00:53:54.050
  • WE WANT NATIONS TO TAKE OWNERSHIP OVER THEIR OWN
  • 00:53:54.070 --> 00:53:56.290
  • DESTINIES AND ASSUME RESPONSIBILITY FOR PEACE AND
  • 00:53:57.010 --> 00:53:59.290
  • SECURITY IN THEIR OWN NEIGHBORHOODS.
  • 00:54:00.030 --> 00:54:02.120
  • IMPORTANTLY, AS WE ENCOURAGE OUR ALLIES TO EMBRACE THEIR
  • 00:54:02.140 --> 00:54:06.140
  • INDEPENDENCE, DEFEND THEIR SOVEREIGNTY AND INVEST IN
  • 00:54:06.160 --> 00:54:11.010
  • THEIR SECURITY, WE ARE DOING THE SAME HERE AT HOME.
  • 00:54:11.030 --> 00:54:16.080
  • THE UNITED STATES WANTS THE SAME SUCCESS FOR ISRAEL, AND
  • 00:54:16.100 --> 00:54:20.200
  • WE ARE SEEING ISRAEL, FULLY SUPPORTED BY AMERICA, TAKE A
  • 00:54:20.220 --> 00:54:24.180
  • NEW ROLE ON THE INTERNATIONAL STAGE.
  • 00:54:24.200 --> 00:54:27.160
  • I WITNESSED THIS JUST TWO WEEKS AGO WHEN I
  • 00:54:27.180 --> 00:54:30.170
  • PARTICIPATED IN AN HISTORIC TRILATERAL BETWEEN THE
  • 00:54:30.190 --> 00:54:34.040
  • UNITED STATES AND RUSSIA HOSTED BY ISRAEL IN JERUSALEM.
  • 00:54:34.060 --> 00:54:38.160
  • IN DISCUSSIONS WITH MY COUNTERPARTS, MAYOR BEN
  • 00:54:38.180 --> 00:54:43.290
  • SHABBAT AND NIKOLAI PATRUSHEV, DESPITE OUR MANY
  • 00:54:44.010 --> 00:54:46.210
  • DIFFERENCES WITH OUR RUSSIAN FRIENDS, ONE POINT OF
  • 00:54:46.230 --> 00:54:49.230
  • AGREEMENT STOOD OUT, THAT ISRAEL'S SECURITY IS CENTRAL
  • 00:54:49.250 --> 00:54:54.180
  • TO THE STABILITY OF THE MIDDLE EAST.
  • 00:54:54.200 --> 00:54:56.140
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:54:56.160 --> 00:54:59.130
  • A STRONG, INDEPENDENT ISRAEL WILL ONLY BE AN EVER-MORE
  • 00:54:59.150 --> 00:55:03.130
  • VALUABLE PARTNER TO THE UNITED STATES.
  • 00:55:03.150 --> 00:55:06.160
  • THIS IS WHAT IT MEANS TO PUT AMERICAN INTERESTS FIRST,
  • 00:55:06.180 --> 00:55:10.000
  • AND THIS IS THE APPROACH THAT IS FINALLY GETTING
  • 00:55:10.020 --> 00:55:12.150
  • RESULTS FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, AS IT WILL GET
  • 00:55:12.170 --> 00:55:15.180
  • RESULTS FOR THE ISRAELI PEOPLE.
  • 00:55:15.200 --> 00:55:18.210
  • WE HAVE PROTECTED AMERICAN INTERESTS IN
  • 00:55:18.230 --> 00:55:21.250
  • INTERNATIONAL FORUMS.
  • 00:55:21.270 --> 00:55:23.170
  • WE HAVE DEFENDED AMERICAN SOVEREIGNTY AT ALL COSTS.
  • 00:55:23.190 --> 00:55:27.080
  • WE HAVE RECOGNIZED JERUSALEM AS THE CAPITOL OF ISRAEL AND
  • 00:55:27.100 --> 00:55:29.130
  • FINALLY MOVED OUR EMBASSY OUR DECADES OF

  • BROKEN PROMISES.
  • 00:55:32.090 --> 00:55:35.180
  • WE HAVE WITHDRAWN FROM THE DISASTROUS IRAN
  • 00:55:35.200 --> 00:55:38.060
  • NUCLEAR DEAL.
  • 00:55:38.080 --> 00:55:40.090
  • WE HAVE REJECTED THE FAILED POLICIES OF THE PAST.
