Chuck Colson Says a Two-State Solution is "Imperative"

Not only has Chuck Colson aligned himself with unbelievers through "agreements" such as the Covenant of Civility and the Manhattan Declaration, but now he has declared that a "just, two-state solution [between Israel and Palestine] is imperative."

Colson uttered those words on this morning's Breakpoint, which up until that point had sounded okay as a defense of Israel. But ignorant words such as those being spoken by a Christian started this pro-Israel blogger fuming.

He also uttered the following words:
"Of course, Israel isn’t just any state. It was created by the UN as a homeland for the most persecuted peoples in history, surrounded by enemies of freedom."
No, Chuck, Israel was not created by the UN. The boundaries of Israel were ordained by God.
The Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “Command the people of Israel, and say to them, When you enter the land of Canaan (this is the land that shall fall to you for an inheritance, the land of Canaan as defined by its borders), your south side shall be from the wilderness of Zin alongside Edom, and your southern border shall run from the end of the Salt Sea on the east. And your border shall turn south of the ascent of Akrabbim, and cross to Zin, and its limit shall be south of Kadesh-barnea. Then it shall go on to Hazar-addar, and pass along to Azmon. And the border shall turn from Azmon to the Brook of Egypt, and its limit shall be at the sea.
“For the western border, you shall have the Great Sea and its coast. This shall be your western border.
“This shall be your northern border: from the Great Sea you shall draw a line to Mount Hor. From Mount Hor you shall draw a line to Lebo-hamath, and the limit of the border shall be at Zedad. Then the border shall extend to Ziphron, and its limit shall be at Hazar-enan. This shall be your northern border.
"You shall draw a line for your eastern border from Hazar-enan to Shepham. And the border shall go down from Shepham to Riblah on the east side of Ain. And the border shall go down and reach to the shoulder of the Sea of Chinnereth on the east. And the border shall go down to the Jordan, and its limit shall be at the Salt Sea. This shall be your land as defined by its borders all around." Numbers 34:1-12 (bold emphasis mine)
