Evangelical Christians from many countries of the world comprise the majority of foreign tourists visiting Israel each year. Most of them are going to Israel for the first time, and what they primarily want to see are the ancient Biblical sites. They have read about Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Hebron, and other places in their Bibles. So they arrive with excitement and anticipation in the Holy Land, anxious to see these ancient Biblical places.

The fact that these ancient sites are still in existence for tourists to visit is what we might call, "Biblically significant." They were places of importance in Israel centuries ago during Biblical history. Abraham, Isaac and Jacob lived there. David and Solomon reigned there. Jesus and His disciples ministered there. And amazingly, two or three thousand years later, these ancient Biblical places are still real, existing and thriving places.

I am sad and even ashamed to say it, but our U.S. President Barack Obama, in his first 100 days in office, has clearly and unmistakeably shown the world, and Israel, his true colors. And they are not pro-Israel.

We could start with his bowing to the Moslem Saudi Arabian King Abdullah when he met him recently at the G20 summit in London. Almost every American, and probably all Israelis, took this as a serious insult. How could the leader of the world's greatest democratic and pro-Christian nation bow himself to the leader of the world's leading autocratic and Moslem nation? And then, how could he further demean himself by denying his bowing, when we all saw him do it with our own eyes? Would he bow before the Jewish president or prime minister of Israel? I wouldn't bet on it.
