I Love Israel

It is important for us to remember history, the real version, and not from some revisionist with an agenda. As we are face with present day dilemmas, many times they are the result of the fact that we have forgotten our history. It is easy to get caught up in an agenda of crafty people who want to shape the world in their own, private image and philosophy. Today is a great example.

President Obama gave a speech saying that he wants Israels to give into the demands of the Palestinians and redraw the lines of their borders to the point in 1968 (that would make Israel only 8 miles wide). President Obama, joining with other world leaders like Iran, want Israel to give up the land that God gave them, and deny their heritage and history. In other words, by allowing others to tell them what they must do with their own land will make them defenseless, unable to protect their nation, and be wiped off the face of the world (the vision and mission of Iran and many other Muslim nations). Sounds gret, right?

Let’s look at history (the real one);

  • God gave the land of Canaan to Abraham and his descendants, Israel.
  • God brought Israel out of bondage in Egypt into the promised land and established for the nation of Israel.
  • No matter the many times that Israel was taken into exile, God always restored the land to Israel.
  • A Muslim Terrorist named Arafat formed a following in Saudi Arabia and eventually tried to assassinate the Royalty so he could take over the country. He and his followers were driven out of Saudi Arabia, and no other nation  would allow them to enter their country.
  • He forced his way into Israel while they were struggling to reestablish their nation and God give n boundaries.
  • He claimed they were a people called the Palestinians who were at one time the owners of that land. Could never prove it, and because he was a well-known terrorist, other nations were afraid to confront him, and they gave into his demands. Thus the followers of Arafat, terrorists, became a people, who had no provable history, were allowed to become squatters in Israel.
  • They remain squatters to this day, making demands, they have no right to make, except for the rights given them by other nation heads who have joined with these terrorist squatters because they keep throwing temper tantrums by killing more and more Israelis, forming other terrorist groups calling them a “people”, and threatening to do the same in other nations.
  • Oppose them, and they throw more tantrums, making more trouble, teaching their children hatred against Israel and those that support Israel.
  • The Left has produced one “Israel-Hater” after another. President Obama sat under one of them for over 20 years, Pastor Write. When you look at all the people President Obama has associated with, you’ll see a long line of “Israel-Haters”, and some of them he brought into the White House as advisers.
  • Now President Obama has joined forces with the Palestinian Leadership in demanding Israel give up more of their inheritance.

Tragic is the nation that does not support and protect Israel. God said He blesses those that bless Israel, and is against those nations that are against Israel. We cannot count on our elected officials to do what is right. We must remain obedient to God and pray continually for the blessings, prosperity of protection of Israel.

  1. The Truth About the Israeli “Occupiers”

    Date: May 25th, 2011

    Category: Liberty & Tyranny

    By Robert Ringer

    Now that our dear leader has again shown his contempt for Israel and his sentimental attachment to radical Muslims, Israelis are feeling the heat from Jew haters worldwide more than at any time since World War II. Obama’s modern-day version of the final solution is for Israel to simply cooperate in its own suicide by giving up the Golan Heights, the West Bank, and the Gaza Strip. (Predictably, he has since fudged a bit on the issue for political purposes.)

    In exchange, the Israelis would get … you guessed it … absolutely nothing! The Muslims don’t even need the West Bank or the Gaza Strip. If Israel just gave the Golan Heights back to Syria (whom, we are reminded by Hillary Goofus, is ruled by a “reformer”), it would cease to exist in about a month. Nothing like looking down on your enemies from above and having the luxury of choosing the most efficient way to destroy them.

    In 1967, after years of threatening to “wipe Israel off the map,” Egypt and other Arab countries finally mustered the courage to attack. They huffed and they puffed and … well, they blew their own house down, humiliating themselves and the entire Arab world in the process. Israel’s superior military forces crushed the puff-prone Arabs in six days, from whence came the name “Six-Day War.”

    Since then, land annexed by the Israelis following that war has been referred to by the Muslim world and progressives in the Western world as “the occupied territories.” But what those who rail on about “Israeli occupation” of these territories either don’t realize or fail to acknowledge is that immediately following the Six-Day War, the Israeli government, in a gesture of goodwill, offered to return the Golan Heights to Syria, the Sinai peninsula to Egypt, and most of the West Bank to Jordan in exchange for peace.

    The defeated Arab nations responded to Israel’s offer by arrogantly declaring “no peace with Israel, no recognition of Israel, and no negotiations with Israel.” Hmm … not a whole lot of incentive for Israel to try to please their attackers.

    An important fact of life that no one ever seems to mention when it comes to the Israeli-Palestinian land dispute is that when you win a war, you take whatever pleases you (unless, of course, you’re the United States of America). When a bunch of lunatics who spend their lives focused on death and destruction threaten to kill you, then attack you, why in the world would they expect you to give back their land after you crush them? It’s simply not the way life works.

    Here’s a tip to nations around the globe who harbor fantasies about hegemony: If you don’t want your land taken from you, don’t attack another country. Period. The Arab world needs to man up and take responsibility for the consequences of its actions. I think most Americans have passed the point of compassion fatigue when it comes to the Arab victimization game.

    But there’s yet a harsher reality. Even if someone attacks you, and you lose, history teaches us that you’re still likely to have to give up some or all of your land. After the Normans invaded England in 1066 A.D., they didn’t negotiate with the Anglo-Saxons. They simply took over, and today, nearly a thousand years later, no one questions the legitimacy of the British Royal Family.

    It all comes under the heading of the Kick-Butt Reality of War, which is a subheading of life’s number-one rule: Life Isn’t Fair. Thus, it’s not surprising that neither the Maoris in New Zealand nor the Aboriginals in Australia ever got their lands back from the English. Though they are now independent nations, the descendents of their English conquerors pretty much run things Down Under.

    The Maoris aren’t naïve enough to believe they’re ever going to get New Zealand back, nor do the Aboriginals believe they’re going to be handed the keys to Australia. Instead, the Maoris have pretty much fit into the Western way of life, and even the Aboriginals, who were treated much more shabbily than the Maoris, are making significant strides in acclimating to Western culture.

    What makes the so-called Palestinian situation unique is that the Jews were already in old Jerusalem as far back as 6,000 years ago. But who got there first is a mute point, at best, because the city has been destroyed twice and changed hands forty-four times over the millennium.

    Further, the Jews insist that God gave them the land, and that’s a pretty strong debating point to overcome, even if you don’t agree with it. The truth is that the situation is so complex that no one knows all the facts, and, worse, most of the loudest voices (such as those in Hollywood) know almost none of the facts. But some things are crystal clear.

    First, Israel took a virtual wasteland and built it into a modern, democratic, wealthy nation that has given the world incredible breakthroughs in medicine, science, and technology.

    Second, the so-called Palestinians have spent sixty-four years painting themselves as victims, living in poverty as a result of corrupt leaders (such as Yasser Arafat, who diverted billions in foreign-aid to his personal bank accounts abroad), failing to engage in entrepreneurship, and dissipating their energies by focusing on their hatred of Israelis.

    Third, thousands of wars throughout history have left millions of people unhappy. Again, life isn’t fair, and the Kick-Butt Reality of Life always prevails, regardless of whether it displeases some people. (Think American Indians.) What I’m saying here is that the so-called Palestinian displacement is not unique. It’s time for Arabs to get over it and start focusing on living productive lives.

    The “Mid-East peace process” is a myth. When TV talking heads use a cliché like “jumpstart the Mid-East peace talks,” you have to wonder if they’re serious. The reality is that there will never be peace between Muslims and Israelis. How can you have peace when the stated goal of one side is to exterminate the other?

    To make matters worse, we now have a U.S. president who encouraged the removal of one of our strongest allies, Hosni Mubarak, which opened the door for his beloved Muslim Brotherhood pals to take power. This, in turn, will likely lead to the abrogation of Egypt’s peace treaty with Israel.

    Having said all this, I will make an unequivocal prediction right here and now: If Israel were ever to be destroyed and the Jews were banished from the Holy Land, nothing would change for Mid-East Muslims. Nothing!

    In other words, the fact that Jews now control Israel is a red herring. If Israel disappeared tomorrow, radical Muslims would start a frantic search for a new devil to blame for their dysfunctional lives. Nothing will change for the so-called Palestinians until they start acting like responsible adults and hold themselves accountable for their own failures.

    They need to understand that when you continue to do the same thing over and over again, you’re going to get the same result. Muslims worldwide need to start getting up every morning and focusing on constructive pursuits rather than spending all their time plotting new ways to kill Jews. To use a well-worn cliché, they need to get a life.
