WorldNetDaily is one of the best — and largest — conservative websites on the net. But, for some reason, they will promote wacky stories or products that just make you scratch your head.
Here’s a perfect example: a book they’re relentlessly flogging called: “Eye to Eye: Facing the Consequences of Dividing Israel.” This book is the #1 seller at WND.
One problem: the book is pure lunacy. You can tell that much just by reading the promo:
“What do these major record-setting events have in common?
Nine of the ten costliest insurance events in U.S. history
Six of the seven costliest hurricanes in U.S. history
Three of the four largest tornado outbreaks in U.S. history
Nine of the top ten natural disasters in U.S. history ranked by FEMA relief costs
The two largest terrorism events in U.S. history
All of these major catastrophes transpired on the very same day or within 24-hours of U.S. presidents Bush, Clinton and Bush applying pressure on Israel to trade her land for promises of “peace and security,” sponsoring major “land for peace” meetings, making major public statements pertaining to Israel’s covenant land and/or calling for a Palestinian state.
Are each one of these major record-setting events just a coincidence or awe-inspiring signs that God is actively involved in the affairs of Israel?
In this book, Bill Koenig provides undeniable facts and conclusive evidence showing that indeed the leaders of the United States and the world are on a collision course with God over Israel’s covenant land.”
This is just laughable. The President of the United States is always stuck mediating between the Israelis and Palestinians. To pick out a day and say, “The US talked to Israel and there was a tornado, so they must be related,” is crackers. What about all the times they talked and there weren’t disasters? The author might as well be claiming that God is punishing the US for running too many Andy Griffith reruns, because on the day all those disasters occurred, somewhere in the United States, somebody was watching.
A website like WND shouldn’t be selling this sort of garbage because it undercuts their credibility. Come on, have SOME standards…
