Israel Always: Israel's Fight Is Our Fight

Jewish and Christian values dictate freedom of religion as national policy in Israel and in the United States.

Too many Christians and too many Americans view the conflict between Israel and the Arab-Muslim forces surrounding it as a Middle East regional problem. They fail to grasp the ramifications that Islamic terrorism is a global war. Israel and the Jewish people are undoubtedly Islam's primary enemy, but America and Christians are certainly next on their list. Muslim leaders have often declared that Israel is the "Small Satan," but that America is the "Great Satan." Jews and Christians alike are negatively characterized as "infidels" and therefore, according to the Koran, deserving to be killed for the honor of the Muslim god, Allah, who insists that Islam is divinely authorized to rule and control the entire world. According to the Muslim super authority, the Koran, anyone or anything that stands its way must be eliminated. Jewish and Christian values dictate freedom of religion as national policy in Israel and in the United States. But does Islam deserve this special privilege? Everyone should know by now that Islam is more than a religion. It is also an authoritarian political system and a militant terrorist system. It is no secret that their intent is to destroy other political systems such as the democracies of Israel and the United States. Why do Israel and the US tolerate this traitorous policy under the guise of religious freedom? Why shouldn't Muslims be legally arrested and incarcerated or deported as traitors and enemies of the state? We understand that our Judeo-Christian values which are based upon the Ten Commandments and other laws given to us in the Torah and the Bible, dictate our kindness to the Muslims even though we know they hate us and want to eliminate us. Our God-given values command us not to kill, not to steal, and not to lie. We are also challenged to be kind, loving and helpful to our neighbors, and even to our enemies. Certainly, both Israel and the US have employed these values to a great extent in our relations with the Arab and Muslim worlds and since Islamic values are diametrically different from our own Judeo-Christian values, all the kindness and helpfulness given to Arab and Muslim nations by Israel and the United States has not produced any appreciable gratitude or any softening of their negativity and hatred toward Jews and Christians. The Muslim interpretation of all this kindness and the appeasement offered to them signifies only weakness. To the Muslim mind, if you are not tough and mean then, they reason, you are not strong so it is no surprise that the current wave of Muslim violent jihad has been energized to spread worldwide with the power and momentum almost of a tsunami. It is sad to believe, but recent statements and actions by US President Obama seem to indicate that he does not recognize the global ramifications of a defeated Israel or an empowered Islamic jihad. He seems to believe that appeasing the Arabs and Muslims trumps the security and well-being of the Israeli nation and people. He doesn't seem to realize that Islamic ideology has taken on the traits of the old Nazi fascism. I personally believe that Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu was totally right when he stated some time ago that the struggle in the Middle East is not about a Palestinian state. As he said, such a state could have been a reality long ago but the centuries-old Arab-Muslim hatred of the Jews is the real core of the conflict. Don't expect it to end tomorrow, no matter how many battles are fought, won or lost. Netanyahu also truly stated that Islamic jihad is not just Israel's problem but that it is a serious threat to the safety and security of the entire free world.
