Louie Gohmert discusses US will be ‘judged’ over Israel by God, ‘it isn’t going to be pretty’

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) appeared on the Steve Malzberg’s program where he was asked to discuss the possibility that the United States could release Israeli spy Jonathan Pollard as part of an effort to reach a compromise in the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian peace negotiations.

According to Gohmert, the tensions between the US and Israel is putting the United States at risk of incurring the wrath of God.

“Since I do believe the Bible, those nations that divide Israel are going to be judged and it isn’t going to be pretty. I’d hate to be the country that betrays Israel, that demands that they give up land that had been given to them. I think that we’re in real trouble with the pressure that this administration’s doing.”

Gohmert has quoted the Bible on the House Floor to justify supporting Israel.

“Some of us believe that the Bible is accurate. Certainly, so many prophesies have been fulfilled, and if that is true, this administration, unless they can find a verse that accurately says that those who betray Israel will be blessed, then this country is being dug in a deeper hole by this administration, and its betrayals of Israel’s trust and Israel’s friendship,” he stated in November.
