It's Never Been About Anything Else

My son walked in as I was watching the news the other day, and he asked me, "So, now that bin Laden is dead, does that mean the War on Terror is over?"  I shook my head, "no," and said, "bin Laden was just one man.    We didn't cut the head off of a snake, we just cut one off of a hydra."  He gave a quick nod of understanding, then said, with an annoyed sort of confusion, "why do they want to kill us, anyway?"  Well, I could have given him the old George Bush line, they're jealous, they hate our freedom, blah blah blah...but that isn't it, not truly.  No, it's because we support Israel. Groups like al Qaeda  launch attacks on Americans because they think if they kill enough Americans, America will change its' policies in the Middle East, that we will forsake the only democratic nation and our only real friend in the region, Israel.  To put it bluntly, they hate Jews.  There will never be any successful peace talks between the Israelis and the Palestinians because the Palestinians do not now, nor will they ever recognize Israel's right to exist.  Up until 1948, the land that is now Israel was under British rule.  When Israel declared itself an independent nation in may of that year, the were attacked the very next day by a total of four different nations- Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, and Iraq.  Yemen would have attacked, but I'm pretty sure they didn't have an army.  That ought to tell you something.  In fact, everywhere from the streets of Hell's Kitchen in New York to the Warsaw ghetto in Poland, everywhere Jews have tried to live in peace, they are persecuted, blamed, threatened, and killed.  They were enslaved by Egypt. They were thrown out of Spain.  They were murdered by the millions in Germany and across Europe. Why?  Because they are Jews.  Palestinians and other Arab Muslims will tell you that America and Great Britain have been interfering in Middle Eastern affairs for far too long.  What that really means is, "throw the Jews under the bus and we'll stop flying planes into your buildings."  It doesn't matter how much land Israel gives up, or what any President of the United States says.  The Arab Muslim world will not tolerate a Jewish state, and any friend of Israel is their enemy.  It's not about oil.  It's not about American Imperialism.  America has been a shield and protector of Israel just like the archangel Michael. They hate us for that. It really is that simple.  "Why should we care," you ask?  Why not just mind our own business?  Well, what kind of friend are you? Do you stand up for your friends?  Do you defend people who are weaker than you when you see them being shoved around by a bully?  If someone threatened to beat your friend to death, would you step in and help them?  Would you watch as your neighbor was dragged from his home and shoved to the ground and kicked, as long as you thought you were safe?  And who moves in when your neighbor is gone?  Someone who beats his wife because she tried to drive the car, or read a book, or because her bare ankles were exposed for a brief moment in public?  None of your business, right?  You're a good German.  Not me.  I stand with Israel.  I've been criticized here because I "oversimplify."  No, I don't.  I break things down to their most basic components.  What is golf?  Hit the ball with a stick until it goes in the hole.   That's how I see things.  I guess I'm simple, but that's the path to truth.  It's all about Israel.  It's never been about anything else.

"Someday" is here. President Obama campaigned in 2008 on the stance that Jerusalem must not be divided. Just a few days ago, he changed his tune and asked just how serious Israel is about peace while proclaiming that the 1967 borders would be ideal. More, more, more, the Palestinians always say whatever Israel does is not enough. As Netanyahu said, Israel is not the problem.

I have a question - what claims do the current israelis have to the land of Palestine, outside of scripture?

A claim to land that a people haven't inhabited in over 1,000 years is rather spurious. Arabs have been living in Palestine for a very long time - Europeans, not so long.

This is a smart blog. I mean it. You have so much knowledge about this issue, and so much passion. You also know how to make people rally behind it, obviously from the responses. Youve got a design here thats not too flashy, but makes a statement as big as what youre saying. Great job, indeed.

Hoping on any instanct is tough for most people. It will take quite a few years to build faith. Doing it doesn’t actually simply come about recommendations, if someone the reason.

Wow. Anonymous came out and called me a racist pig. Obviously, they did not even bother to read the post, or they see my defense of Jews as racist, somehow. As to any claim to the land now inhabited by the Israelis, you might want to go back in your History book more than 60 years before claiming that the Palestinians have any more right to it. Palestine was where Syria is now. So...?

I was wondering if you ever considered changing the page layout of your site?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.

But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect
with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for
only having one or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?
