Bush demands Israel's blood

Posted: November 22, 2003 1:00 a.m. Eastern

By Mike Evans © 2003 WorldNetDaily.com

Speaking in London on Wednesday, President Bush said, "Israel should freeze settlement construction, dismantle unauthorized outposts, end the daily humiliation of the Palestinian people, and not prejudice final negotiations with the placement of walls and fences."

Happy Thanksgiving! It's time to carve up the turkey. It is, however, customary to kill the bird and drain its lifeblood before serving it. I find it strangely coincidental that every time Tony Blair is in trouble over the Iraq war, Bush runs to the rescue by donating Israel's lifeblood!

This happened in the Azores on March 17, 2003, as the drums of war were beating, and again at Camp David on March 26, 2003, seven days into the war. When Prime Minister Tony Blair linked his support for the Iraq war with U.S. support for the Road Map, it became very apparent that Israel would have to pay the appeasement bill – like it or not.

The absurdity of it all is that Arafat (the godfather of world terrorism) spit in Clinton's and Barak's faces when Israel was willing to split the turkey down the middle by playing the terrorism card yet again. He spit in Bush's face after the president flew to the Middle East for a summit in Aqaba, Jordan, to embrace Prime Minister Mahmoud Abbas.

On June 3, when it appeared the war in Iraq was over, Bush hosted the heads of state from Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Bahrain in Egypt. Secretary of State Colin Powell summarized the purpose of the meeting: "The meeting is important to make sure that the Arab leadership is behind and supportive of the Road Map. …"

The following day, Bush kept his word to Tony Blair when he met with Israel Prime Minister Ariel Sharon and PA Prime Minister Mahmoud Abbas to urge acceptance of the Road Map. Arafat, meanwhile, spent the entire summer initiating a plague of suicide bombings and undermining Abbas, who was ultimately forced to resign.

Now, six months have gone by. Apparently, Saddam is still alive, and no weapons of mass destruction have been found. Terrorists from all over the world are pouring into Iraq like water over Niagara Falls. Four hundred American soldiers have been killed since June. The month of November has been the worst; the downing of three Blackhawk helicopters claimed the lives of 23 U.S. soldiers.

What in the world has Israel to do with Tony Blair? Everything, in a liberal, pro-Muslim Europe that wants oil, not Israel! Before the war began, President Bush built the case with Tony Blair that Britain and America had to "go it alone," that the U.N. could not be trusted to be a partner in the process.

Why, now, did Bush support Russia's resolution to turn a failed Road Map over to the U.N. Security Council? This is the governing body that equates Zionism with racism and who's Human Rights Commission proclaims that the Palestinians can use "every available means to defend themselves against occupation" – a clever endorsement of suicide bombings. (At the time, the Human Rights Commission was chaired by another "peace-loving" Islamic nation – Libya.)

Simply put, Blair needs Bush's support to remain prime minister, and Jewish blood is cheap … especially in Europe. Six million Jews found that out during the Holocaust. Even then, America was more than willing to institute the "don't ask, don't tell" policy and closed her borders to Jewish refugees who were in grave danger of being dragged to the ovens.

Accommodation gets people killed in the Middle East. It is a signal to terrorist cartels that crime pays, so why not kill Jews. It seems Jewish blood is the only thing that anti-Semitic Muslims want anyway. They are, as it is preached in anti-Semitic circles, the reason for all of the troubles in the world and, therefore, expendable.

The U.N. Security Council (whose members include Syria, a terrorist state) recently voted unanimously for a Russian-backed resolution on the Road Map. That same evening, a series was aired at 9:30 p.m. on Al-Manar, Hizbollah television. The series is based on Hitler's final-solution book, "The Protocols of the Elders of Zion." Episode 20 of the series depicts Jews murdering a Christian boy to drain his blood to make Passover Matzah. It makes one sick to watch this theater of the absurd and festival of hypocrisy.

The OPEC cartel, which has no money or land problems, has used the Palestinians as pawns for decades. It has fueled and fed a refugee crisis, then blamed it on Israel. The Egyptian-born billionaire, Yasser Arafat, president of an entity that harbors, supports and aids terrorists, must be laughing uncontrollably! He will, indeed, have a happy Thanksgiving! This is just more evidence that terrorism can achieve significant political goals.

Why has Bush given Saudi Arabia a free pass? Saudi Arabia, a major member of OPEC, persists in funding and exporting Wahhabism – the extreme brand of Islam that has been labeled a "strategic threat" to the U.S. war on terror. Michael Young, chair of the State Department's Commission on International Religious Freedom, said Thursday, "It (Wahhabism) is an ideology that is incompatible with the war on terrorism." One would think that Saudi Arabia would be at the top of the president's list – not the Road Map that forces Israel to accept yet another terrorist state on her borders (thus rewarding terrorism!).

The Bible says, "I will bless them that bless thee, and curse them that curse thee." The liberals are paranoid that George W. Bush, with his strong faith in God and belief in the Bible, will become their greatest nightmare. It seems they have nothing to fear.

Interesting article. The pander-o-meter does seem to surge when Blair enters the scene. Blair has been a good friend to the U.S., but he's no lover of Israel and all too eager to kiss Arab pitoot. Bush needs to stand his ground here.

What hype! Establishing settlements and fencing off space are inflammatory acts not indicative of sincerity in achieving peace.

Well....if the shoe fits...

Seriously, if GW is to be believed as a supporter of Israel, he shouldn't make such inflamatory statements. Any leaning towards not allowing Israel to defend itself and it's citizens is anti-Israel - Period.

I support Bush 99-44/100%. On Israel, he is pandering, either to Blair (whenever he is with him) or to the Arabist State Department.

There is no question in my mind there never has been a President of the US who was more understanding of the problems faced by Israel than President Bush. However, he also is the only President to ever call for the West Bank to be carved into a separate Palestinian state, thereby giving the Arab terrorists the message that...terrorism works.

The US has adopted many of the techniques used by Israel's army to defend its homeland, because they are successful. Yet whenever Israel does these things Bush sends out Colin Powell to condemn Israel for its actions. When Bush is with Tony Blair, he says these things himself.

Clinton also was a very pro-Israel President, but he was led by Shimon Peres and his friends to support the Oslo Accords, and he was horribly wrong, both in terms of the damage to Israel and also -- and more significantly -- in the damage to the US.

Israel is the canary in the coal mine. When Islamist terror affects Israel, and Israel is restrained from responding, it will hit the rest of the West. We in the US would be much better off if Bush took the handcuffs off of Sharon and let the Israeli government handle the palestinian Arab terrorists the way that it should.

Even Reagan went ballistic when Israel bombed the Osirak nuclear reactor (an action that subsequent presidents -- and his top aides -- later expressed gratitude for.

Reagan also bought into the story of Israel bombing a little child in Lebanon, until that story was proven to be a fake.

In my view, Bush is a craven appeaser willing to donate the blood of the last Jew to appease his Arab enemies. The people here stating that Bush is Israel's best friend must be smoking something. The only reason Yasser Arafat remains alive is because George Bush is protecting him. Bush is Arafat's guardian angel.

Imagine if Osama Bin Laden had a compound 5 miles from Washington, DC where he was plotting suicide attacks that killed thousands of Americans. If a third party tried to protect him, all hell would break loose.

The truth is that Bush is too weak to defend our country and has his lips surgically attached to the butt of the Saudi despot (just like his oil-stained daddy). Yes, the Rats are worse, but Bush is absolutely pitiful!

Some things are said for public consumption. I think Reagan's comments about Osirak were made in that vein. I'm not sure what "subsequent presidents" praised the raid. Maybe you could enlighten me.

I keep hoping that some of Bush's comments (E.g. "religion of peace") have been made for public consumption, but unfortunately his actions (maybe not in regars to Israel) indicate that he might actually believe some of these things he has been saying.

" "Israel should freeze settlement construction, dismantle unauthorized outposts, end the daily humiliation of the Palestinian people, and not prejudice final negotiations with the placement of walls and fences." " is it really all that inflammatory? Let's see:

"Israel should...

1. freeze settlement construction,
2. dismantle unauthorized outposts,
3. end the daily humiliation of the Palestinian people,
4. and not prejudice final negotiations with the placement of walls and fences." The only objection I would have is to (1) and (4), and really only 4 is a serious problem, yet even that is a bit ambiguous. Earlier Bush said that in principle, he has no problem with a wall on the greenline.

I couldn't find any direct quotes from George Bush I,Bill Clinton or our current President supporting the bombing of the Osirak reactor.

However, I did find a comment from Richard Cheney (VP, I know, not President) stating that Israel's bombing of Osirak made the 1991 Gulf War much more possible.

I also found a suggestion (but not primary material) that Clinton, in his 1992 campaign literature, supported the bombing of Osirak.

In addition, the bombing of Osirak clearly fits into George W. Bush's doctrine of pre-emption. Whether he would acknowledge this, of course, cuts to the core of what this thread is about.

Why should Israel dismantle unauthorized outposts? Should Israel dismantle unauthorized building by palestinian Arabs as well? If not, why the double standard?

What are the daily humiliations of the palestinian arabs? This is inflammatory language. Have you ever stopped beating your wife?

God himself sent an army against Jeruselum and destroyed it, not one stone standing. They are an arrogant stiff necked people who need to listen. A jew without Christ is no different than a muslim without Christ. The choice is theirs.

Your post is understandable after 8 years of steadfast leadership from Bubba, who could possibly be seen as strong when replacing such a patriotic and pro American leader?

Hey, BriarBey, what do you think about all of the Christians tortured and killed and driven out of Lebanon, Bethlehem, Egypt, Iraq, etc.? I guess their acceptance of Jesus was insincere?

Keep a visionary attitude for "knee jerk reaction" is not a very appealing attitude to see in the President of the most powerful nation in the world.

And your point is? Acceptance of Jesus is the only answer and He told us some of us would be killed for our beliefs.
What is insincere about that? I think he was pretty sincere. The only way to the Father is thru the Son, and without that man's ONLY hope is death eternal. Sorry I don't get your reply.

My point is that I don't understand what you mean.

As I understand your thinking, if Jews (or Muslims, as in the case of Turkey) are killed, it means that they had this coming because they didn't accept Jesus. If Maronite Christians are killed in Lebanon (there is another string going on right now about jihad against Lebanese Christians), or Coptic Christians are oppressed in Egypt, or palestinian Christians are thrown out of Jesus' birthplace of Bethlehem, or Assyrian Christians are oppressed in Iraq, this is somehow irrelevant.

What's your answer to Islamist terrorism? Ignore it, because those who have accepted Jesus are not going to be harmed?

I think that your religious beliefs, however sincerely you hold them, are not the answer to Islamist murder.

I also don't understand what your religious beliefs have to do with President Bush's policies toward Israel? By the way, he is a practicing Christian, and he seems to have a true love and admiration for Israel (except when he is selling it down the river). How do you explain that, BriarBey?

Bush demands Israel's blood

Four hundred American soldiers have been killed since June

And about 2000 have been injured. Israel is the one the main beneficiaries of the elimination of the Saddam regime. Does this mean that: "Sharon Demands America's Blood"?

ok..this is what I think, hope I can make it sound right. I believe that Believers (some call them christians) are the sons of Issac. I believe muslims are the sons of Ishmael. BOTH were told they would be great nations. I believe people get lost and deceived and this is just the way it is, you can't wipe wickedness off the face of the earth. I believe we should fight for freedom and to see people free but they should also learn to fight for themselves. The sons of Ishmael have always loved fighting and wars from the start. That is what they do. As for people getting killed, no one has it coming for any reason, this is life, WE DIE, there are bad people who just don't care about the value of life, and they take it or we just keel over from old age....death is death, you can't stop it.
My Faith and my Hope is in God's blood sacrifice for me. I believe what he said, I believe in the gift he gave me, eternal life. Doesn't mean I have more privileges here or I do or don't deserve to die, I am just going to die. But you won't keep me down, I'll just wait. ALL you are seeing is the playing out of HUMAN nature devoid of the spirit of the living God. We are not puppets we have a freedom to do as we please and that is pretty much what we are doing.
Pres. Bush is doing what his denomination has taught him to do and that is defend Israel, according to church doctrine, protecting Israel will bring blessings..........ok.....what if all our protection doesn't make that happen. Did God actually say that the way we thought he did or was it a ploy by religion to protect something God cursed a long time ago. I Don't know....I have lots of questions, and sometimes we just have to watch it play out to know the truth of it. I don't even profess to have all the answers, I just have faith thay my Father will never leave me nor forsake me.......dead or alive. He never has thus far.

Sometimes it's what one doesn't do. But this line from the "Reagan Plan," kind of sums it up:
When the border is negotiated between Jordan and Israel, our view on the extent to which Israel should be asked to give up territory will be heavily affected by the extent of true peace and normalization and the security arrangements offered in return.
This plan was viewed quite negatively by the Israelis. But look at what he was saying. Israel would keep a portion of the West Bank and what it didn't keep would revert to Jordan. There was no negotiating with Arafat, or any other "Palestinian." Much of the Reagan attitude was summed up in this Feb '82 letter to Began:

His Excellency
Menachem Begin
Prime Minister of the
State of Israel
Jerusalem

Dear Menachem:

Recent press reports have presented incorrect and exaggerated commentary regarding U.S. military assistance policies for the Middle East.

I want you to know that America's policy toward Israel has not changed. Our commitments will be kept. I am determined to see that Israel's qualitative technological edge is maintained and am mindful as well of your concerns with respect to quantitative factors and their impact upon Israel's security.

The policy of this government remains as stated publicly by me. Secretary Haig's and Secretary Weinberger's statements on the public record are also clear. There has been no change regarding our military supply relationship with Jordan, and Secretary Weinberger brought me no new requests. Any decision on future sales to Jordan or any other country in the region will be made in the context of my Administration's firm commitment to Israel's security and the need to bring peace to the region.

Israel remains America's friend and ally. However, I believe it is in the interests of both our countries for the United States to enhance its influence with other states in the region. I recognize the unique bond between the United States and Israel and the serious responsibilities which this bond imposes on us both.

Sincerely
(signed)
Ron

There hasn't been a US administration as supportive of Israel since Reagan. Before he was President, Reagan wrote on the subject of Palestine (3/27/79), "You see the truth is there was no nation called Palestine." (See Reagan - In His Own Hand p. 215) As with other aspects of his world view, his Administration was what he believed.

You're partly wrong. There was a nation for the arabs living in Palestine, but no, it wasn't called Palestine. It was carved out of what was slated to be Israel. It is called Jordan. They took the land set aside for the Jews (who at the time were called Palestinians) and at the last minute gave the lions share to the arabs living in Palestine.

IMO, the Palistinians already have a State. It's called Jordan.

Let me know when you find something that Reagan said that wasn't true. Then let me know what you think about Bush's consistent calls for a "Palistinian" state. As poster templar points out in #38, even Clinton didn't do that.

Regardless templar, if the jews do not accept the ONLY sacrifice that God himself will accept, their fate will be no different than the first time God destroyed Jeruselum.
He went to jew first, they rejected Him. The offer still stands and they STILL have to accept, nothing changes, not even in endtimes. Spiritual Israel is God's chosen people not physical Israel. And spiritual Israel includes all colors, shapes and form of mankind, who have accepted that sacrifice. Its so easy.....why has mankind made it so hard.

I don't want to be wrong. Your reply did not change my thinking that there never was a sovereign nation named Palestine In '67, Egypt blocked Israel's main seaport, Israel stated beforehand this would be considered an act of war. The West Bank of Jordan, the Golan Heights of Syria and the Gaza Strip of Egypt became Israel after these aggressor nations were defeated. Arabs living in these areas left beforehand anticipating to return after the Arab victory. Their hope for Jewish eradication did not quite work out. But where is the nation Palestine? It does not exist. Many Arabs living in Israel came from other nations to benefit from the Israeli economy. The terrorist leader Yasser Arafat himself was born in Egypt in 1937.
