At stake for Israel: the right to exist

A fuel tank burns in southern Lebanon.

A moment of truth

This war upon Israel provides a moment of clarity for the world. David Horowitz writes that it is a "Moment of truth" for Americans and freedom-loving people everywhere. His words are prophetic and incisive:

Americans need to take a hard look at what is going on in the Middle East, because it provides the clearest picture possible of the war we are in. On one side are al-Qaeda, Hamas, Hizbollah, Syria and Iran and their allies: Russia, France, Greece, and the UN majority. On the other is the only democracy in the land of Muslim and Arab terror. The origins of this front in the war on terror are crystal clear: the desire of the Muslim terrorists -- the elected majority among Palestinian Arabs and the occupying Shi'ite army in Lebanon, backed by Syria and Iran -- to destroy Israel and push the Jews into the sea.

The war reveals the impossibility of a Palestinian state and the necessity of a civilized occupying force in a region that is populated by a people who have been terminally brainwashed into an ideology of hate, which makes their self-government a crime waiting to happen.

There were 10,000 Jews living in Gaza until recently. They were so creative that while representing less than one percent of the population they accounted for 10% of the entire gross national product of the country. Productive and law-abiding as they were, their existence in Gaza required a Israeli army presence to protect them. So uncontrollable is the genocidal hatred of Palestinians for Jews (more than a million Palestinians on the other hand live peacefully in Israel enjoying more rights than any Arabs or Muslims living in their own countries). The Israeli army in Gaza was also necessary to prevent genocidal Palestinians Jew-haters from lobbing rockets into Israeli schoolyards.

Eventually, the Israeli leadership made a decision to capitulate to Arab Jew hatred and uproot the Jews living in Gaza, and to withdraw the forces that protected Israel from being attacked by Arab criminals. In the months that followed, the Arabs did nothing to improve their new homeland, which they now controlled completely. Instead, they elected genocidal terrorists to govern them. They destroyed the horticulture industry the Jews had created and that provided 10% of their GNP. They lobbed 800 or so rockets into Israel. During all this mayhem no word of condemnation for the Gaza aggressors came from the UN, France, Russia and rest of the Jew-hating, terrorist-appeasing and terrorist-supporting international community.

Consequently, the Hamas army command, based in Syria, authorized a further aggression -- a tunnel into Israel and the kidnapping of an Israeli soldier. For good measure, Palestinians in the West Bank executed an 18-year old Jewish hitch-hiker for the crime of being a Jew. Still no condemnation of the Palestinians from the Jew-haters in France, Russia and at the UN. This support encouraged Iranian-sponsored Hizbollah to initiate another aggression, this time from the north...

Read the whole thing. It's time the truth is told about the war foisted upon Israel -- silent and deadly most of the time, now it has boiled over into open conflict; yet this conflict is only a sign of what is to come, if this Jew hating terror is not stopped -- in its local iterations and its theocratic patron states of terror.

Israel has withdrawn from all "occupied territories," and still she is relentlessly attacked -- yea, attacked even more since she withdrew!

What does this tell you about the aims of the people who attack her?

Are we willing to see the truth?

Loy, I cannot comprehend just how stupid we all are: this is the umpteenth rerun of thuggery by Middle East brutes against Israel, abetted by effete Western Europeans, and sovereign mobsters from the African and Eurasian land masses along with cretins like Venezuela's Chavez.

It may, however, be close to the final show or even the finale itself. And right now, given the state of the world vis a vis Israel and the United States, it's a highly unpredictable, dangerous state of affairs--one that could end in an utter nightmare or just postpone that inevitable day for a couple more years.

Indeed! I was talking with someone this week about the willful blindness and virulent anti-Semitism seemingly ingrained in world consciousness.

If one didn't believe in the war between good and evil, an objective look at this completely irrational hatred of Jews/Israel would be enough to convince the most hardened skeptic of metaphysical realities. There is simply no rational [physical] explanation for why so many disparate -- and by their own view, cultured -- people hate Israel. So many "good" and "educated" people who either latently or actively participate in Jewish demise...

It's mind boggling.

When evil uncoils its tentacles in darkness, two things happen: innocent children/persons die, and Jews die. And, by extension, as Nietzsche wanted, true Christians die, too. For true Christians refuse to deny their Jewish roots and Jewish Savior, and so risk the anti-Semitic darkness in the process....

Loy, I have heard a number of "modern" Christians discount the existence of external evil, i.e., Satan in his many demonic forms. They may admit to evil impulses and actions within human beings, but none that externally seduce humans into the vilest of acts. Certainly, as I am sure that the ever-preceptive CS Lewis must have noted, this is the ultimate demonic temptation.

And yet, here we are once again, with inexplicable evil running rampant while people of comfortable modern attitudes persuade themselves that it is somehow a relative situation between opposing parties. One that can be settled by the umpteenth cease fire.

The claws of an ancient dragon are visible to anyone with the least insight into man and the Fall.
