Divine Justice

Pat Robertson: "This is my land," and for any prime minister of Israel who decides he is going to carve it up and give it away, God says, 'No, this is mine.'"

Avi Hartuv, spokesman for Israel’s tourism minister: "We can’t accept this kind of statement. We will not do business with him."

Business? What sort of business?

Apparently, Rev Pat had plans to open $50 million theme park in the Galilee. Now, thanks to the good minister's intemperate statement Jesusland is in jeopardy:
"The contract is still open - just not with Mr Robertson. If there are other Christian leaders, they are most welcome to sign a contract to bring Christian tourists to the State of Israel.
Or as God Himself might say the next time he confers with Pat, "The Galilee is mine and any two-bit pastor who thinks he can build a New Testament Disneyland there had better think twice."
