The Tie That Binds America, Britain andIsrael

Though divided by contention and strife, the three remain prophetically linked.

uring his famous “Iron Curtain” speech, Winston Churchill described the alliance between theUnited States and Britain as a “special relationship.” Midway through the 20th century, that specialrelationship helped forge the existence of a new Jewish state in the Middle East. In 1962, PresidentJohn F. Kennedy told Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir, “The United States has a special relationshipwith Israel in the Middle East really comparable only to what it has with Britain over a wide range of affairs.” This brotherhood among three peoples—the Americans, the British and the Jews—has been intimatelyclose the last two centuries because of the historical ties that are rooted in the very first book of theOld Testament—and because of God’s hand in establishing these end-time nations and raising them tounprecedented heights of world power. (This critical historical context is fully explained in Herbert W.Armstrong’s book 
)Yet, even those who don’t follow theTrumpet.com can see from newspaper headlines that these threenations are, even now, in the midst of an astonishing free fall from their former positions of worlddominance. That’s because, just as God prophesied of our rise to power, He also prophesies of oursimultaneous fall.Coinciding with this precipitous decline in world power and influence is the unraveling relationship thatonce bound these three brothers so tightly together. The Prophet Isaiah described this dramaticunraveling, which occurs just before the latter-day appearance of the prophesied Messiah. “Manassehshall devour Ephraim,” Isaiah wrote, “and Ephraim Manasseh; Together they shall be against Judah” (Isaiah 9:21, New King James Version).These three Israelite nations—which have maintained such strong and durable alliances over thecourse of many generations—were
PROPHESIED

in our day,
to forsake their special alliance and to engagein furious strife and contention with one another.That is clearly happening before our eyes.
America Devours Britain, and Britain America
 
Earlier this week, the United States concluded a deal that allowed four Guantanamo detainees to settlein the British colony of Bermuda. According to several reports, British officials at Downing Street knewnothing about the arrangement Washington made with Britain’s oldest colony.Said oneLabor MP, “The U.S. is clearly determined to act in what it perceives as its own nationalinterest even
riding roughshod 
over what it should have done, which is spoken to the Britishgovernment” (emphasis mine throughout).Investors.com wrote that by secretly foisting terrorists off on a British colony, the United States was effectively scrapping its special relationship with the UK.As our regular readers know, this relationship has been rapidly deteriorating since the beginning of theyear. Barely a month into office, President Obama ditched the term “relationship” in favor of  “partnership,” whendescribingAmerica’s association with Britain. This change coincided with theadministration rejecting Britain’s offer to extend the loan for theChurchill bust,which had been situated in the Oval Office since 9/11.Then there was President Obama’s chilly reception for Prime Minister Gordon Brown in early March,which consisted of a 30-minute chat inside the White House. Afterward, as a parting gift, Obamapresented Brown with a
DVD
collection of 25 Hollywood movies. In response to the angry reaction inBritain over President Obama’s royal snub, a White House official excused the slight by saying the newpresident had been “overwhelmed” by the economic meltdown.But the real views of Obama’s administration, the
Telegraph
 wrote, were laid bare by one StateDepartment official who helped plan for the Brown visit. “There’s nothing special about Britain,” theWashington insider supposedly said. “You’re just the same as the other 190 countries in the world. Youshouldn’t expect special treatment.” The latest U.S.-UK dustup over the Guantanamo detainees certainly attests to that. According tothe
Independent 
, Whitehall officials accused the United States of treating Britain “with barelydisguised contempt.” Itquotedone senior official as saying, “The Americans were fully aware of theforeign-policy understanding we have with Bermuda and they deliberately chose to ignore it.
This isnot the kind of behavior one expects from an ally 
.” 
Together Against Judah
Even as the United States and Britain exchange blows with one another, there remains one commongoal that both of them share:
HOSTILITY
 
TOWARD

SRAEL
.President Obama’s Cairo speech perfectly summarized Washington’s renunciation of any specialrelationship it once had with Israel. As notedherelast week, in hopes of currying favor with theMuslim world, the Obama administration has effectively decided to abandon its most dependable allyin the Middle East.Britain has followed a similar course for some time now. Earlier this year, amid widespread Europeanprotests against Israel’s operation in Gaza, anti-Semitic hatred and violence was especially ugly inLondon, of all places, where more than 100,000 protestors took to the streets in open support forHamas.
