Pat Robertson Says If Peace Occurs Between Israel And Palestine, God Will Punish America (VIDEO)

God will make America suffer for pursuing peace between Israel and Palestine… or so says Pat Robertson. On his 700 Club program, the famed Christian Right con-artist told his audience that brokering peace in the Middle East is a bad thing because God will punish America.

Robertson made this claim in response to Secretary of State John Kerry’s intention to negotiate a peace deal between the constantly battling Israelis and Palestinians. A peace deal would almost certainly calm tensions that have been high in the region for decades, and would perhaps show the people of the Middle East that America is a fair and peace-loving nation. But, according to Pat Robertson, God doesn’t want peace and will make America suffer if it helps bring peace between the two peoples.


Transcribed from video:

“I think this is headed for disaster for the United States,” Robertson began. “God says, they divided my land, there is something about dividing God’s land, he said this is my land, I gave it to Abraham and his descendants and I don’t want it taken away from them and Jerusalem is the eternal capital of Israel. For the United States to get into a deal where they’re trying to split Jerusalem and take it away from the Israelis and split up their capital, huge mistake. You are asking for the wrath of Almighty God to fall on this nation and when it falls it won’t be fun, it won’t be fun. We should do everything we can to restrain our leaders from this course of folly and it is and it is a course of folly and it will result in terrible suffering for people in the United States.”

Here’s the video:

How can anyone claim that God hates peace and get away with it? Why would God want a perpetual war in the Middle East that would only bring death and suffering across the land? Isn’t peace supposed to be a Christian value? One would think God would applaud the human race for choosing peace over war. It seems to me that God would do that. The notion that God would make a nation suffer for pursuing peace is downright laughable.

But let’s keep God out of it. Pat Robertson and conservatives may oppose peace, but the Israeli people do not. Two-thirds of Israelis support peace with Palestine and support a two-state solution to achieve that goal. Not only that, the vast majority of Palestinians also support the two-state solution as a path to peace, and both peoples see America as an essential part of the peace process. Even 82% of American Jews support peace through a two-state solution. It seems the only people who oppose peace through a two-state solution are conservative evangelicals who would much rather see a war destroy the Palestinians than see President Obama and his team bring peace to the region through careful diplomacy.

If peace were to occur between Israel and Palestine, it would be a major historical achievement in the march towards peace on earth. The only people who seem to not want peace are so-called Christians on the right-wing who have an agenda. And that agenda is to scare as many people as possible to oppose the foreign policy of the Obama Administration. Any Christian worth their salt will always choose peace over war. So I guess we all know what kind of Christian Pat Robertson is. The fake warmongering kind.

  • Curious. The Christian conservative’s perception of God appears to be one of an ego-centric, malevolent, abusive, micro-managing sadist — somewhat akin to how many of them treat their wives.

  • All good Christians need to keep sending lots of money to Pat and his deranged 700 Club brethren. Obviously he’s off his meds and suffering severe delusional dementia, receiving ‘messages’ from a supernatural ‘lord and savior’. This man needs help. Forced retirement is the first step.

  • What a loving caring dick you believe in you silly little prat.

  • The best Christians want the Middle East to erupt in a fire storm. That’s one of the signs the world is about to end. When the end comes they get to go to the happy land and be happy and shit. So that’s why they like Middle Eastern conflicts. True story.

  • …and no doubt the gays will get blamed for all or it…

  • Considering Robertson’s history of failed predictions from his god, I would not worry too much about god’s revenge on peacemakers. Maybe he should question who it is he is really talking to, you think?

    Besides, he should remember that the Palestinians (not just Jews) are descendants of Abraham (if you believe the Bible). So, in a sense, peace would be uniting the children of Abraham, not dividing them.

  • Blood Diamonds Robertson opens his trap again. So I guess America is being punished right now this instant, because of every American President attempting to broker a peace deal in Israel/Palestine?
    Or is it just this one President?
