The US House of Representatives overwhelmingly passed a resolution on Tuesday that rejects the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign against Israel, after some Democrats expressed concern last week that the measure could cause infighting within the party leading up to the 2020 election.
One of IFA’s most popular devotional series is God Keeps Covenant: God’s Love for Israel. This 5 day devotional explores the heart of God for Israel and the role of Christians in God’s plan for Israel.
The bill — formally known as House Resolution 246 — also calls for increased security aid to Israel and a two-state solution. It passed by a vote of 398-17, with five abstentions.
Sixteen Democrats opposed the bill, including representatives Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, the first two Muslim women elected to Congress. Both support the BDS movement.
One Republican, Rep. Thomas Massie of Kentucky, voted against the resolution. (Excerpt from Times of Israel.)
We join Capitol Hill Prayer Partners in praying: Father God, once again we shout “Hallelujah” over news of this vote. Lord God, our people love Israel and wish to stand with her, always. This wicked BDS program would have served to place a stranglehold on Israel’s economy. We say NO in Jesus’ name, and we thank You for this tremendous show of support that was demonstrated yesterday by this bipartisan show of support for Zion:’ a vote of 398-17. Praise God! “He who blesses you, I will bless . . .” (Gen. 12:3)
