Creeping, Galloping Sharia- What it Means for America Pt.2

This is part 2 in the series.

How wise was the man who said, "Force is the surest way of implimenting the right, and how beautiful it is that force and right should march side by side." Hasan al-Banna,  one of the founders of Muslim Brotherhood

On Taqiyya, "Speaking is a means to achieve objectives. If a praiseworthy aim is attainable through both telling the truth and lying, it is unlawful to accomplish through lying because there is no need for it. When it is possible to achieve such an aim by lying but not telling the truth, it is permissible to lie if attaining the goal is permissible...and obligatory to lie if the goal is obligatory."
-- Abu Hammid Ghazali, 11th century Muslim,  author of more than 70 books on Islamic sciences, Philosophy and Sufism

The theological principle of Taqiyya means hiding one's true beliefs and intentions to confuse ones adversaries and enable mujahedeen to operate freely amongst enemies.

In the last article, I shared the story of Kamal Saleem which was written by Michael Carl,  based on the book "The Blood of the Lambs".   I shared that article for a little back ground on the spread of Islam from one who used to be one of them. 
This article, and ones to follow, I want to show how Islam, specifically Sharia is spreading through the west, particularly in the US.

 
People need to be informed of the truth about Islam.  Islam is still a very misunderstood ideology and too many people remain in the dark about the true purpose of Islam.  It is not just about religion, as it is a geopolitical ideal in which Islam (submission) is a way of life in all parts of society. It is also religious yes, but also under sharia, it is law, it is government as well.   People who don't understand this, may believe they know enough of Islam, and believe the words of those who appear to be moderate Muslims, but have no idea of the ramifications of America falling to sharia law.  Non religious people may have a hard time with Christians wanting to say the pledge of Allegience with the words, "One nation under God..", or to have public displays of the Ten Commandments or nativities etc,  but these same people, who usually believe that Muslims are on the most part peaceful,  have no idea of what life would be like under Islamic rule and sharia law.  One only has to look at a country such as Saudi Arabia, or see groups such as the Afghani taliban to know what even just part of Islamic society is like.  We will look later a little more closely at sharia compliant, Islamic states in a near future article. For now, lets get started and see how Islam and sharia are not just creeping, but galloping into every part of American life- from government, our military and defence, our courts and legal system, to Islamic cities, education and schools, our marketplaces and restaraunts, banks and financial institutions and even into our churches. 

First of all, lets look at our Government, and more importantly our military and defense.  Remember from Saleem's story, he says, "The Muslim Brotherhood is here specifically to destroy the house of the United States of America and bring about the Islamic House and that's done by the Muslim's hand.... And it’s not the just the Muslims who came to the United States for this purpose, but also those they recruited in the United States as Americans and have turned them against this country." Saleem continue and adds, by now Islam even has reached the White House, to the Senate, to the House of Representatives and to lobbying.

If the name Keith Ellison sounds familiar, you may remember he is the first practicing Muslim US Congressman, from the state of Minnesota.  Soon, we will most likely see more Muslims in our government, from those who are already at city, county and state levels to the House, Senate and the White House.  Millions of Muslims are natural born citizens, so it would be no stretch to see a practicing Muslim run for high office.  Does this bother me?  As a person who believes in the freedom to practice relgion of the US, no, not really.  I don't look at people for their religious beliefs or skin color, I look at a person's actions.  As a Christian and someone who has studied religons, and specifically Islam, I know that a Muslim is more loyal to the cause, to their god and their "brothers" than they are to any secular government.  The same is true for Bible believing Christians.  I can pledge allegience to the United States and all it stands for, but when and if government does something, or forces something which goes against God, I place my allegiance to God while still being under the authority of government. Muslims see Allah, Mohummad and Islam as their only authority, and unless a government swears by Islam, the government is not to be trusted, and only obeyed if it can further the cause of Islam.  Remember Saleem's admission in part 1, "In Islam liberty, pursuit of happiness and freedom of our thoughts are considered false gods."   Muslims, if they are true to the Koran, will use the freedoms afforded in the Constitution for their purpose, until they are strong enough in number to destroy those very freedoms.  Working within the system of government, once they could gain a strong hold, they could find the votes to over ride the people and pass sharia law. 

In our past elections, we saw in the state of Oklahoma, the people passing a state amendment to keep the state free from sharia.  There was quite an outrage really, from people who saw this as an attack, hate speech on Islam, but think, if the courts were not already in some cases using sharia to make their rulings, and seeing the moves in other parts of government towards sharia, the people of Oklahoma and other states would not even consider such a vote.  Interesting to note as well, if there was no move to promote sharia, why was there an injunction placed against the state by a highter court when a lawsuit was brought against the state for, "(My) constitutional rights are being violated through the condemnation of my faith," said Muneer Awad, executive director of the CAIR in Oklahoma.  CAIR, being of course, the Islamic version of the ACLU, but with ties to terrorist organizations.


A Muslim by the name of Arif Alikhan has been appointed by Barak Obama to be Assistant Secretary for the Office of Policy Development at the Department of Homeland Security.  Alikhan has been Deputy Mayor of Los Angeles--in charge of public safety for L.A.  DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano said Alikhan’s “broad and impressive array of experience in national security, emergency preparedness, and counterterrorism will make him an asset”   One must ask though, would he be a help to the US in fighting against Jihad, or would he be better suited to help undermine America's defences here at home especially keeping the practice of Taqiyya in mind? 
During his years in Los Angeles, Alikhan was responsible for derailing the Police Department’s plan to monitor activities within the Los Angeles Muslim community, where a number of mosques and madrassas existed, and where some of the 9/11 hijackers had received support from local residents.  Alikhan is strongly anti-Israel; he has referred to the terrorist organization Hezbollah as a “liberation movement.” Hezbollah is on the U.S. official terrorist list while being an affiliate of the Muslim Public Affairs Council. Alikhan also opposed President George W. Bush’s prosecution of the war on Islamic terror.  In 2007, Alikhan was instrumental in removing a Muslim terror tracking plan in Los Angeles.
It seems odd, doesn't it, that an unknown bureaucrat and devout Muslim who achieved a position of Deputy Mayor of Los Angeles--in charge of public safety for the city and now becomes Assistant Secretary to DHS.  It's not so odd, when one knows the ideologies of Islam.

In another appointment, Big Sis Napolitano swore in Damascus-born Kareem Shora, the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC)’s national executive director, to a position on the Homeland Security Advisory Council, an outside-the-department group of national security experts that advises the Secretary. Shora is the first Arab rights advocate on the panel and also has with ties to terror backers.
Shora's birthplace, Damascus is in Syria, still considered by many to have terrorist ties with Iranian leaders and Hezbolla in Lebanon who are all seeking to do harm on Israel and the west.



How about this case, where an illegal Muslim from Lebanon stole information from the FBI and CIA, passing it along to Hezbolla?  How did this person, who wasn't even a legal resident of the US, happen to find information at the FBI and CIA?  She worked there!  Lebanese-born Nada Nadim Prouty gained U.S. citizenship in 1994 through a fraudulent marriage, joined the FBI's Washington Field Office as special agent in 1999 and joined the CIA in June, 2003.
 
Again, using the misunderstood Muslim angle, this woman most likely got herself a job because people who think that Islam is a religion of peace didn't want to find themselves in a discrimination lawsuit based on her religion.  You need to read the full story here.



It is the practice of the CIA to hire Muslims, in hopes to learn more about terrorist organizations, the language and customs of terrorist nations and train agents to spy in known terrorist organizations.   In an interview on FOX news, former CIA Director General Michael Hayden tells about the CIA's recruiting practices which have been going on for years.  When prompted by FOX about the CIA needing recruits who can speak the language, Hayden replied, "...And by recruiting these Americans in Dearborn in Phoenix in Fremont California and and other places like that...Of the Central Intelligence Agency to these immigrant communities first and second generation Americans we've been a sponsor of the Arab American festival on Dearborn Michigan since 2003. We just want these communities become more aware of what CIA is really light and we think as they become more familiar with the agency. Will be as successful recruiting in these communities is where we are successful elsewhere....We vet all of our applicants incredibly thoroughly in fact it's almost a painful process. That we put these Americans of whatever persuasion through so we have a high level of confidence now nothing's perfect. But we have a high level of confidence in all of our officers."
Yes, confidence in say, folks like Nada Nadim Prouty.  Notice, the part where he says the CIA sponsors the Arab festival in Dearborn Michigan.  I will be writing more about that in a later post, but for now, you can go here and here, to find out just how tolerant Muslims in Dearbornistan are of non Muslims.



In our ever tolerant, multicultural society, sometimes clashes of culture can occur,  and usually, it is demanded by government agencies and institutions, that groups attend either diversity or sensitivity seminars so as to learn how to get along better.  While I have yet to see a diversity and sensitivity seminar on understanding the Bible believing Christian, many times I have read or seen about Islamic sensitivity training.  Some of this training goes beyond personal rights and freedoms granted in the US Constitution.  For example, A Tulsa, Oklahoma, police captain is suing his chief and the city after he was demoted and targeted by an internal investigation for refusing orders to attend an event featuring lessons in Islam, a tour and a prayer service at a mosque, which, imagine, has been linked to an unindicted co-conspirator in a terror financing trial.   Now, imagine anyone being ordered to attend a Catholic Mass, or a Holy Supper at the local Baptist church.  Would there be outrage?  This is not the first time someone has been either reprimanded, demoted, or suspended for not attending such an event, which happens to be about "understanding"Islam.  The deal is, when such an event is mandatory, this is clearly stepping over Constitutional bounds and no matter the faith or group.
As of this post, this officer has yet to be re instated.



There are devout Muslims in every branch of government, from local cities, counties and states all over America.  To know what a Muslim thinks about society, one must ask 2 important questions.  What do they really believe Islam teaches, and do they believe that what Islam teaches is really true?  If muslims believe in the Koran, and they believe the Koran is true, then they believe in the law, they believe sharia is necessary to live in any society and will work towards the goal of changing any secular or Judeo/Christian society into an Islamic one.    Christians should be asked the same 2 questions.  While bible believing Christians know Christ is our Lord and Savior, we can live under any government rule and still do as our Lord requires, that is to love others, love our enemies and preach the Gospel.   Christians have been doing these things for two thousand years, under the most free governments, and under the most oppressive governments, many of them Islamic- and never have Bible beleiving Christians believed our duty is to over throw any of them.

Creeping, Crawling Sharia, What it Means for America - Pt. 1

The process of instituting Sharia, according to the Muslim Brotherhood:

Settlement: Islam and its Movement become a part of the homeland it lives in.

Establishment: "Islam turns into firmly rooted organizations on whose bases civilization, structure and testimony are built.

Stability:  Islam is stable in the land on which its people move.

Enablement:  Islam is enabled within the souls, minds and the lives of the people of the country in which it moves.

Rooting: Islam is resident and not a passing thing, or rooted 'entrenched' in the soil of the spot where it moves and not a strange plant to it.

The process includes building mosques and Islamic centers, building Islamic organizations, building Islamic schools, then the "overt Islamic Movement" and coordinating all Islamic "movements."

This article will be long, most likely in parts, but I would urge you to read it all so you can recognize the facts being what they are. Even as people believe they know all about it, are open to dialogue and tolerance, Islam is still a very misunderstood ideology.  Muslims on a whole want it to remain misunderstood because it keeps a focus on tolerance, dialogue and a feel good impression of the religious aspects while covering up the geopolitical part of Islam which is world domination.   The politically correct, politically duped would have me labeled as a hatemonger and islamophobe for talking about the truth of Islam, while they ignorantly are duped into still believing Islam is a religion of peace, and that all religions should be treated equal.

World Net Daily published a three part article by By Michael Carl, which was based on a biography called, "The Blood of Lambs: A Former Terrorist's Memoir of Death and Redemption" by Kamal Saleem.  You can read the whole series about his past as an Islamic terrorist, and his conversion to Christ here but let me give you a run down on his story.   It is because of men such as Kamal Saleem, Walid Shoebat and others, through their warnings, we can see just how fast Islam is infiltrating all parts of Western society and bringing with it, Sharia Law, which will ultimately bring down the Western world as we have known it.  I have written for over 5 years now about Islam, and I have been keeping track of events happening, but many people still don't seem to understand just what it would mean for Islam to become dominant in our country.   This first part of my series  is based on the three part series by Michael Carl, because it gives a starting view of the way Muslims spread their ideologies, and in my next parts, I will compare what he talks about with other experts and news stories to show just how far down the Sharia road America has traveled.


  Saleem was trained at a PLO assault camp starting at the age of seven, was indoctrinated in radical Islam and how to despise Christians and Jews by his parents.
As an adult, he served under Yasser Arafat and was eventually recruited by the Saudi royal family to infiltrate the United States with a campaign of radical Islam.  In an interview with WND, Saleem said he was at the top of the Islamic world when he was recruited to infiltrate the United States by the Saudi royal family.

"Many of the Saudi sheiks (princes)  are Wahhabis. What is the Wahhabi? American people need to understand that Wahhabi and Sufi, these are two kinds of flavors, just like we have '31 Flavors,' but these two flavors call for governing under Shariah law," he said. "Their belief is that the only way Islam can be anywhere is to rule, and not to be equal to any other governing system."

According to Saleem, this is what he was to infiltrate the US for and spread radical Islam and sharia. His first assignment was to begin working in America's jails.  "In the jail system is where the Nation of Islam is really very strong. This is where we thrived on the black African people. They were falling by the hundreds of thousands right there in jail....What happened is that in order to become Muslim you had to become a slave to the rules and regulations of Shariah law because it tells you how to eat, how to sleep, how to drink, how to go to the bathroom, how to get married. Everything is told to you and that's by political Islam itself," Saleem said.

He said he also was instructed to work the college campuses using the Muslim Brotherhood-established Muslim Student Association as a way to convert America's college students.  He admits using the mechanics of the U. S. system of freedom to proclaim a philosophy of Islam that seeks to destroy those very freedoms.  "In Islam liberty, pursuit of happiness and freedom of our thoughts are considered false gods," Saleem said.

Saleem's statements are in line with the assessment of British Sheikh Anjem Choudary, who told WND that real Muslims reject democracy.  "These are things that are anathema to Muslims, like democracy and freedom, which we completely reject. They have no foundation in the divine text," Choudary said.


Saleem's analysis is upheld by terrorism and Islam scholar Bill Warner who says that Muslims are to follow the way of the Prophet Muhammad, the Sunnah. Speaking about the way of the prophet, Warner says Muslims are to emulate Muhammad in every way. "It may be shocking to some people, but to those who are familiar with Muhammad, 'Yes, that is Sunna, the perfect example of Muhammad,'" Warner said. 

"Before anything starts, a person has to believe the ideology of hate, anger and deception. It's for a cause and that cause has a price. The price is either financial or of heaven," Saleem said . "That was to obtain paradise with Allah and adopting all of the promises every Muslim is promised if they die as a martyr. So therefore, I would set out wholeheartedly with the love for Allah, with is the love of Islam itself, to advance the Islamization of the world."

Saleem explained that the Muslim objectives are more geopolitical than spiritual."Our commission was to subdue the world and to bring the whole world under submission of Shariah law, which is the Islamic Constitution.... Over 64 percent of Shariah law is dedicated to bringing non-Muslims under subjugation to Islam."

"In Islam, everything is conditional. For example, in the Quran, there is not one place where Allah says 'I love my people,' not once. The word love is not mentioned in the Quran," Saleem said.

The Quran teaches that women can be beaten, and eventually either divorced or killed in an honor killing if she doesn't obey her husband.  "Women in our (Islamic) culture are nothing. They are equal to the goat or the rug. Her purpose is to be married to her husband to give him pleasure. When a husband marries a wife, he purchases her sexual organs."  Saleem explains.  "Therefore, her purpose is to give him pleasure and to give him children. This is the purpose of women."

Muhammad commanded that non-Muslims' property can be taken simply because they're not Muslims. The process was to continue until everyone acknowledges that Allah is god and that Muhammad is his prophet.  Saleem's explanation of how Muslims financially related to non-Muslims agrees with Anwar al-Awlaki's article in the Winter 2011 edition of al-Qaida's magazine "Inspire."

In his article "Dispossessing the Disbelievers," al-Awlaki said Muslims should steal from wealthy kafirs (unbelievers) to finance world-wide jihad. 
Whenever Islam prevails, the property of non-Muslims belongs to the Muslims. If the kafir doesn't surrender it voluntarily, the head of the household should be killed.
"In Islam, you cannot inherit the enemy's property unless you kill the head of the household, the man. By killing the head of the household, the man, what happens is the whole thing is his legal right and that's called civilization slavery." Saleem says.


"The Muslim Brotherhood is here specifically to destroy the house of the United States of America and bring about the Islamic House and that's done by the Muslim's hand.... And it’s not the just the Muslims who came to the United States for this purpose, but also those they recruited in the United States as Americans and have turned them against this country." Saleem continued.

He adds, by now Islam even has reached the White House, to the Senate, to the House of Representatives, to lobbying, to the banking, to the security services, the sanctuaries of Christian churches and campuses of Christian colleges.  Center for the Study of Political Islam President Bill Warner agrees and says that higher education is the target of a well-financed influence campaign.

"I spent eight years at a university as a professor. I'm here to tell you that not only can you rent a professor; you can buy a professor. Not only can you buy a professor, you can buy an entire  department....What has happened is that the Saudis, our best friends, have given large sums of money to set up centers to study Islam at universities," Warner explained.

"So, if you come into a university, give them $20 million to set up some chair for a Middle East Department, then you fund things and you build a building, money will buy influence....Here we have education departments, at like Georgetown or Harvard, the two biggest examples, which now function as mouthpieces for the Muslim Brotherhood. By that I mean the decrees they make or the papers they write, cannot be distinguished from an apologist for Islam," Warner asserted.

Saleem adds that there are dynamics at work that bring Muslims to coordinate with people that in the Muslim world they would persecute. He says homosexuals are an example.  "They've even aligned themselves with the gays. The gay movement is protecting the Muslims. They don't know that in Islam, the gay people are beheaded. That's their cure for homosexuality," Saleem continued. "But it's the doctrine. Befriend your enemy until you enslave them. Me and my enemy against my enemy,"

Saleem says one of the most insidious ways jihad and Shariah law is infiltrating the U. S. is through the courts. He cites the recent Florida case in which a judge ordered Shariah law be used to settle a mosque leadership dispute.

"What they're trying to do is fake cases for Islam and these cases are done purposefully. We take an imam, there are two of them. They were fighting against each other and the fight was over a mosque," Saleem explained.
 

"Both of them are demanding to be judged by Shariah so now the Supreme Court is learning how Shariah works. So, in turn, they have instilled and indwelt Islamic laws with our laws," Saleem said.

Saleem says at that point a judicial precedent has been established and other Muslims can officially ask for their cases be decided by Shariah law.

In a Pennsylvania case, a judge used Shariah law to settle a dispute over a will. As a result, the two brothers were awarded twice as much of the inheritance as the two sisters.

Saleem says that the effort to install Shariah law into the United States should be treated like "any other act of terrorism because they are terrorizing this country."

Saleem says what's happening should be prayed against.

"That's what we need to speak against and pray against because it is the essence of evil." Saleem declared.


While we wait on the next parts, please think about a couple of more facts.  Most Muslims in the West try and promote themselves as moderates.  While there are moderate Muslims, most of these would be, in Muslim and Sharia compliant countries, charged with apostasy or as being infidels, not true Muslims.  It's not that those in the Muslim countries are militant, but they do practice the true form of  militant Islam as written in the Koran and the Hadith.  Many of the so called moderate Muslims in the West are much like the modern secular Christians, in that they may call themselves Christian, but they do not follow the Scriptures or even understand the Bible for being the Word of God.  They have accepted a watered down, happy and touchy feely version of what Bible believing Christians follow. 

Keep in mind also, the difference between "fundamentalist Islam" and what some would refer me and any other Bible believing Christian to as a fundamentalist Christian.  While I believe in the Bible as inspired and the Word of God, I will never harm someone or persecute anyone who doesn't share my belief in Christ. I will, as I've stated time after time here, share the Good news of Christ, but I will never, nor could I ever, force anyone to accept Jesus.  One only needs to read of persecution around the Muslim world of those of non Muslim beliefs to know that this is not the case with fundamental Muslims.

We Are the World, We Are the Children, Lets All Hate Israel..

I have been not so outspoken lately about Israel, well, except for my commentary on Obama's incredibly ignorant and asinine speech telling the world that Israel needs to go back to the pre 1967 borders.

Well, I feel I must speak up again, in defense of Israel because so much has been going on for the past few years, but more so within the past few weeks- dear leader's speech included. 
I read a article tonight on The Blaze, which, usually would make my hair get in a knot, but strangely, all I feel is pity and sadness for the ignorant masses who have fallen lock and step with the same kind of hateful speech which paved the way to the death camps of the Third Reich.
Seems that some musicians are the latest to jump on the anti Israel bandwagon, and have recorded a song that accuses Israel of “crimes against humanity” and “illegal occupation,“ and demands ”freedom for Palestine.”  Now, I've never heard of any of these people, except for the band Coldplay, but even then, I don't think I've ever heard one of their songs.   Anyway, this group for some reason calls themselves OneWorld.  Would that be a world without Jews?  Just askin'.

I'm going to suggest you get a coffee, or whatever your pleasure, and get comfy because this is going to be one of my longer articles to explain history.  I do not want to make it a record breaker, but this is something that can not be broken down into a multi part series- so bear with me folks.
So many people have for a long time been lulled into a false history of the Middle East for decades, specifically that which pertains to Israel and "Palestine".   This song, these people who wrote and recorded it, all the flack for the past year about flotillas, and the steady rise in Anti Semitism is an indication of just how much people are blinded to the history of Israel.

I could show hundreds of Biblical verses which tell about the beginning of the nation of Israel thousands of years ago,  but for the first part of this, let's look at it in a purely secular way.
Where was Palestine, and who were the Palestinians?   Back during the Roman Empire days, AD 70 to be specific, the Roman persecution of the Jews was in full swing.  The Empire didn't appreciate much about this backwater, hickville place in the desert, and they cared less for the people who lived there- specifically the Jews, the new religious kids on the block- the Christians, or the Arab people.  They decided to call the region Palestine, which was meant as a slur to the Jewish people.  The region has never, since the Israeli kings had a self rule or their own government.  It has been in the hands of the Babylonians, Assyrians, Media/Persians, Greeks, Romans and since the fall of the Roman Empire, it fell under the rule of the Islamic and Christian Crusaders and the Ottoman Empire.  It was not until the Balfour Treaty, after the World war, that Israel became a nation again, drawn with property lines established by the Allies.

The area, still known by the Roman name, Palestine, was not much of a promised land for much of the past millennium.  In the early 19th century, Palestine was a backward, neglected province of the Ottoman Empire. Travelers to Palestine from the Western world left records of what they saw there, the empty land was, neglected, abandoned, desolate, and ruins.  Jerusalem wasn't much different.   Mark Twain describes the area in "The Innocents Abroad" in 1867: There is not a solitary village throughout its whole extent [valley of Jezreel] — not for 30 miles in either direction… One may ride ten miles hereabouts and not see ten human beings. … For the sort of solitude to make one dreary, come to Galilee … Nazareth is forlorn … Jericho lies a moldering ruin … Bethlehem and Bethany, in their poverty and humiliation… untenanted by any living creature… A desolate country whose soil is rich enough, but is given over wholly to weeds … a silent, mournful expanse … a desolation … We never saw a human being on the whole route … Hardly a tree or shrub anywhere. Even the olive tree and the cactus, those fast friends of a worthless soil had almost deserted the country … Of all the lands there are for dismal scenery Palestine must be the prince. The hills barren and dull, the valleys unsightly deserts [inhabited by] swarms of beggars with ghastly sores and malformations. Palestine sits in sackcloth and ashes … desolate and unlovely …"
Sir Winston Churchill described a Palestine without the Jews in the winter of 1920-1921., "Left to themselves, the Arabs of Palestine would not in a thousand years have taken effective steps towards the irrigation and electrification of Palestine. They would have been quite content to dwell—a handful of philosophic people—in wasted sun-drenched plains, letting the waters of the Jordan flow unbridled and unharnessed into the Dead Sea.”
In any historical description of the area of Palestine, you will never see the word "Palestinian".  There is no such thing as a Palestinian race or people.  There is no such thing as a Palestinian language or culture.  The fact of the matter is, these people whom the world and anti Israel sympathisers call Palestinians are in fact Arabs.

The Arabs of the land were mostly nomads or Bedouins.  They had done nothing much to improve the land in any modern way, and it was the Jewish people who lived there, in the years before and after the world wars, which produced transformations by building power stations, industry and commerce and rebuilding cities.  Because of the ingenuity of the Jewish people, they were making living standards better not only for themselves, but also for the Arab people who lived and worked there. 
When the State of Israel came into being again after a thousand or so years, there was still much to improve in the land which in Biblical days had been described as a land flowing with milk and honey.  It was not long after, that the tiny new nation was being drawn into war over territory by the Egypt, the newly created Trans Jordan and Syria.  Israel, with barely a standing military managed to win these wars.  Interestingly, before these happened, there had never really been a call for a "Palestinian State".  Interesting.
During the Six Day War, Israel did capture land which included parts of Jerusalem and what is now called the West Bank.  But again, they did NOT capture this land from "Palestinians".  They captured it from Trans Jordan.

OK. Lets look at the land.  What purpose does the world demand Israel give up half it's country to Arabs?  It can't be due to size!
Syria has nearly 71,500 square miles. Jordan has nearly 35,700 square miles of land.  Iraq, nearly 169,000 and Iran nearly 637,000 square miles.  Saudi Arabia nearly 757,000 square miles!  These are only a handful of Arab lands surrounding Israel.  Israel, is 8,109 square miles.  The widest part of the country is not quite 30 miles across!

So it's not land.  It's not oil or other natural resources, as the massive square mileage of Arab lands has plenty.  Maybe, as so many people seem to believe, it's because the Arabs were forced from their homes during the early wars against Israel.  That could be part of it.  It's not pleasant to think of anyone having to be forced from their homes, but like it or not, this has happened throughout history- not just from Israel.  Should all people all over the planet be allowed this "right of return"?   If this were the case, most of North America would be emptied, much of South America as well.  And if we really want to knit pick, Israel would go back to it's right of return as well, the original lands based on the early Biblical description has it's eastern border on the Euphrates River!     No, it's not even really about the people displaced during the early years of Israel's rebirth. 

Is Israel a perfect nation? Not by a long shot- but show me a nation, or people who are!  My secular side, if I even have one, tells me that the world seems piled against Israel is just not right.  Something doesn't make sense here.

Then it must be religious right?!  After all, the Dome of the Rock is there, so Arabs should be able to have Jerusalem as their capital!!  Not so fast!
Again, yes, the Dome of the Rock and the Al Aqsa Mosque are located where?  On the Temple Mount.  What Temple would that be?  The Jewish Temple, not the original one mind you, built by King Solomon over three thousand years ago, but the one rebuilt by Herod between 20 BC and AD 70.  Islam wasn't even a twinkle in the Muslim eye until after 500 AD.
 
The Jewish Temple is the most Holy Place of Judaism.  Jerusalem has been the capital city of Israel for over 4000 years.  Did you know that Jerusalem is not even mentioned in the Quran?  It's true.  It is not.  Mecca, the Holiest place of Islam is in Saudi Arabia, and is mentioned throughout the Quran, but not one mention of Jerusalem.  So, it can not be for religious reasons.... or can it?

I have posted on Israel, the end times and prophecies much on my blog ever since my earliest days at AOL.  I have, time and time again, told people to watch the happenings in and around the middle east, specifically Israel, because all of prophecy concerning the coming of Christ points to the rebirth of the Israeli Nation, political upheavals, the rise against God's chosen people of Israel through anti Semitism, and the world coming against Israel until she has no friends left.

It seems that things are falling rapidly into place.  Up until recently, the western world, specifically the United States has stood with Israel, supporting her new creation.   With the present administration, it has come to pass where America no longer seems to be wanting to remain a steadfast friend of Israel.  The past few decades has seen a steady decline in American/Israeli relations, but no more pronounced and troubling as recently with Barack Obama.  With the main stream news reporting so called atrocities, so called apartheid and so called Israeli occupation of a fictional race of people- the masses are quick to pile on the anti Israel bandwagon.

This is a religious thing.  It always has been.  God chose Abraham to be the father of the Jewish people.  Through the promise of his descendants through the line of Isaac, Israel has been the apple of God's eye for thousands of years.  It is through the earthly descendant of Abraham, Ishmael, who was described as a wild donkey of a man, quick with bow and arrow, who is the father of the Arab people.  The brother of the Promise have been enemies ever since.

Satan has always had his plans to destroy God's people.  After all, God's Holy Word comes to the world from the Jews, as does the Savior of the World.  Satan has tried through centuries, by leading the people of Israel, through disobedience to God, to be lead into captivity time and time again.  But God keeps on bringing His people home.  He has brought them home after the last major attempt to wipe them off the face of the earth by the gas ovens of World War 2.   He will try again, by the world coming against one of the tiniest nations on earth, but when everything seems the most hopeless for Israel, God will once again save His people, and show the world He is Lord of Lords.  Soon thereafter, Jesus comes to reclaim His creation.  Please read the Book.  It's all in there.  Ask Jesus, ask Him, "if You are real, please reveal yourself and Your Word to me, that I understand".   Trust in Him.  The rest of the Word is coming to life in front of our eyes, you can be assured, that Jesus is the Author, and His Word is True.



May G*d Bless and Keep Israel! Amen.
