The biggest problems mankind has endured in the middle east have been presented by the fire-breathing mullahs and rabbis. If they would stay out of what should be secular problems, the Arabs and Jews could have sorted this problem out centuries ago.
And I’m not leaving out the Catholic bishops. If mankind had spent half the energy on real problems, rather than man-made struggles over whose prince would reign in what area, imagine the rate at which science and technology could have advanced. We could have had, for examples, the transportation and communications we enjoy now but a century or two ago, and imagine where we might be now: Cancer cured, possibly. Polio wiped out. Clean water for more than 50% of the worlds population. Famine eliminated.
But as a practical matter, the biggest threat we face now is Islam, and Israel is our forward listening post.
If muslims cannot reconcile themselves to the fact that others (`infidels’) believe differently in matters of faith, and that jihad will result only in further death and destruction, then we will continue to waste lives, time and resources battling these murderous children of Allah.
Just sayin’ IMHO, `umbly submitted.
If there is to be another Holocaust, this time it will be nuclear and the Jews in Israel will not be the only souls burning.
I would say we can hope wiser heads will prevail before Israel is pushed too far but there are no wiser heads. Not in Europe and not in the USA either - at least not among those in power.
The USA was the greatest hope of civilized man but the election and support of Obama shows that as a country we are now far into Moonbat territory. When the boot comes down on the Jew, Obama will be cheering.
The Chinese will be more than willing to trade them all they want or need for oil.
And here I thought Obama couldn’t possibly do more damage in his Second two years than in the first two. Boy was I ever wrong.
"That place" is the Holy Land. It is the courtyard of the King of the Universe. And Jews are commanded to live there.
Worse, he'll be celebrating his winning strategy.
When the boot comes down on the Jew, Obama will be cheering.It won't be one boot, it will be many. One will be worn by Obama.
Weren’t there millions of acres in Argentina where the Jews were going to settle? That was sometime before England relented and agreed to settling them Jerusalem.
I am still unable to comprehend why leftists would ally themselves with the one group most likely to KILL them when the opportunity becomes available.
It is difficult to believe that a group of human beings who fashion themselves as intellectuals can be so blind, stupid & gullible.
They probably have small nukes already located in strategic locations, just waiting for the right signal...
I laid down a hundred dollar bet with a friend tonight that we will see a Egyptian street scene in DETROIT before next Christmas!
I hope I lose but..............
........I think the odds are 50-50 you win.
It’s beginning to look like. 1917 and 1938 rolled into one. The fall of Kerensky and the rise of Lenin/Hitler.
They could annihilate Israel with the help of Pakistan, which has nukes.
Wars and rumors of wars. Christ compared the end of the world to birth pains; they increase in frequency and severity.
I’m not religious either. But I believe in God and I believe Christ is God’s Son. So, the question is, “IF we could get to heaven by being good, why would God allow His Son to die a horrific death on the cross?” I conclude that it must have been necessary both for the purpose of justice and mercy. His holiness requires judgement and His love provides undeserved grace.
He paid a debt He didn’t owe because we owe a debt we cannot pay.
“The Samson option will ensure that if Israel falls there will be a ring of states surrounding Israel that are radioactive cinders.”
I would like to believe you’re right, but I sense that if that moment comes — when the Jews finally face their own end — that their inner “Jewish guilt” will prevent them from pulling the trigger en masse on their enemies. As Jews, it’s simply “not in them” to do so.
This is an angst that seems to thrive within Jews (particulary American Jews, but not limited to them), creating an almost palpable “ethnic guilt” that compels Jews to support liberalism and policies which seem destined to denigrate and marginalize themselves. It’s as if their success as a people is a weight upon their shoulders for which they must atone to others less fortunate and savvy.
After the Holocaust, the Jewish refrain became “never again!”
But when that moment comes, I predict that they will lose their nerve.
That’s only my opinion, and I would like to be proven wrong.
We shall see.
Read Isaiah 19 to see how close we are.
I understand - but there are so many Arabs - so much hate and rage... These people want to kill the Israelis. They hate everybody, but especially the Jews. It’s hard to watch David going up against a hundred Goliaths. Isn’t there any other option?
