President Obama to visit Israel this week...

Steven LeBlanc

The above video is a good representation of the frustration some Israeli leaders have expressed concerning President Obama waiting so long to visit Israel.

The President will arrive in Israel on March 20th and has scheduled hours of meetings with Prime Minister Netanyahu, Mahmoud Abbas, President Shimon Peres, Palestinian Prime Minister Salaam Fayyad and King Abdullah of Jordan. The President will also make visits to Yad Vashem, The Israel Museum and Har Herzl, where he will lay a wreath on the burial sites of slain premier Yitzhak Rabin and Zionist father Theodor Herzl.

The Israeli public is angry with the President—because it took him over 4 years to visit Israel—America’s staunchest ally in the Middle East. Prime Minister Netanyahu plans to address Israel’s biggest concern with the President: Iran getting a nuclear weapon.

It is clear that Mr. Netanyahu wants to deal with the Iranian threat this year and not wait any longer. The end time prophecy found in Genesis 49 reflects the approach of end time Israel, and expresses the desire of Prime Minister Netanyahu to deal with Iran—Israel’s greatest enemy today [Genesis 49:8-9]:

Judah, …your hand will be on the neck of your enemies; … You are a lion’s cub, Judah; you return from the prey, my son. Like a lion he crouches and lies down, like a lioness—who dares to rouse him?
