|…Lastly, a nice quotation from a sheriff in Luna County, New Mexico, one Raymond Cobos, whose department was alerted to the vandalism of a billboard located in an empty field alongside a road in the town of Deming. I think that is the country seat. The sign declared, “Stand with Israel” and urged passersby to sign a pro-Israel pledge sponsored by Christians United For Israel, one of the nation’s largest pro-Israel groups. CUFI has also posted four other billboards in New Mexico and others in California and Oregon, G-d bless them.
County Sheriff Raymond Cobos called the incident an “odd anomaly” and said he had “never heard anybody express anything anti-Israel or anti-Jewish” in his time on the force. “It’s odd, very odd,” he told the Free Beacon, which is a new online conservative newspaper, attributing the vandalism to “borderline morons who have no connection with the real world.”
Bravo, Sheriff Cobos. I like that. “Borderline morons,” those who would tear down an advertisement soliciting support for this tiny little country that has contributed so much to humankind.
CUFI, Christians United For Israel, has on is executive board Gary Bauer and Pastor John Hagee, and the organizations pledge on its website reads thusly: “We believe that the Jewish people have a right to live in their ancient land of Israel, and that the modern State of Israel is the fulfillment of this historic right. We maintain that there is no excuse for acts of terrorism against Israel and that Israel has the same right as every other nation to defend her citizens from such violent attacks. We pledge to stand with our brothers and sisters in Israel and to speak out on their behalf whenever and wherever necessary until the attacks stop and they are finally living in peace and security with their neighbors.”
Amen. And only “borderline morons who have no connection to the real world” would disagree with that.
