In Netanyahu's speech to the joint session of Congress Prime Minister Netanyahu in closing gave one direct quote from the Bible, Torah perhaps:
Deuteronomy 31:6 Be strong and resolute, neither fear nor dread them.
(As Netanyahu phrased it.)

I am no Biblical scholar. Of all the verses of the Bible, Torah, why this one? Thoughts?

Americans who cheer for America are patriots. This country is grounded on certain fundamentals. And we would rather our ground not glow.

It was how Moses encouraged the Hebrews to go commit genocide.

Context of 31:6 isn't encouraging...

1And Moses went, and he spoke the following words to all Israel.
2He said to them, "Today I am one hundred and twenty years old. I can no longer go or come, and the Lord said to me, "You shall not cross this Jordan."
3The Lord, your God He will cross before you; He will destroy these nations from before you so that you will possess them. Joshua he will cross before you, as the Lord has spoken.
4And the Lord will do to them, as He did to the Amorite kings, Sihon and Og, and to their land, [all of] which He destroyed.
5And [when] the Lord delivers them before you, you shall do to them according to all the commandment that I have commanded you.
6Be strong and courageous! Neither fear, nor be dismayed of them, for the Lord, your God He is the One Who goes with you. He will neither fail you, nor forsake you."

Americans who cheer for America just because it's America are morons. Or as Einstein put it:

"He who joyfully marches to music rank and file, has already earned my contempt. He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would surely suffice. This disgrace to civilization should be done away with at once. Heroism at command, how violently I hate all this, how despicable and ignoble war is; I would rather be torn to shreds than be a part of so base an action. It is my conviction that killing under the cloak of war is nothing but an act of murder." - Albert Einstein

Another socialist, anti-capitalist who ran to America to get away from tyranny and enjoy the fruits of the system while abasing it. He did believe in god however.

It was the commandment of God.

As mentioned in the Bible God destroyed the before the congregation not for the congregation's sake but for the wickedness the peoples had done. God does not pervert judgement.

People use the BIble to twist and pervert what God does all the time. That a head of state with nuclear weapons is quoting a genocidal verse isn't comforting.

Not in any of our religious versions of it no. I think it's possible something we'd call gods exist, but see no evidence of them as yet.

"think it's possible"? Does that count as agnostic or are you on the fence about being on the fence? "I'll believe it when I see it" I would call that atheist.

I was reading Job last night and thought about you. There is a wonderful message I was reading from Chapter 22 through Chapter 25.

You know I was told a story many years ago, Random, in days of kings and queens - in the middle east - that they use to crush certain worms and the blood from the worm was a special dye used to give the brilliant color of the kings robes. I see Jesus in Chapter 25. Do you see him? You know, I was thinking just now - I do not know of a book in the bible that I have read where I did not see Jesus in that book! Every book is about Him! From Genesis to Revelation! Is it not amazing that once Christ is revealed to you - that you see him everywhere? What kind of blessing is it to be able to read the Word of God freely? Truly it is a blessing.
