President Bush and Condoleeza Rice have done it again. They have pushed for a “Two-State Solution” to the Middle East “problem”. It seems they, along with the rest of the world have forgotten that there was a virtual civil war amongst the so-called “Palestinians” and Gaza was taken over by the terrorist group Hamas. Fatah, that moderate Arab group that moderately wants to drive Jews into the sea has control in Judea/Samaria, the Biblical heartland of Israel. It seems the Bush Administration has forgotten that the kingdom of Jordan was originally established as the original “Palestinian” State.
And now the U.S. State Department has endorsed the Saudi Arabian “peace” plan of 2002 which calls for Israel to retreat to its pre-1967 borders. It is becoming apparent that the U.S. is leaving its claims of friendship for the Jewish nation along the road-side of expediency. It is no longer in vogue to be a supporter of the Jews right to the land that the Bible both Jews and Christians believe is the inspired Word of God claims was given to the descendants not just of Abraham…but of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Ishmael was never part of the equation when it comes to the Land of Israel.
Oh! But then the so-called Palestinians do not claim to be descended from Ishmael. They claim to have sprung from the seed of the original inhabitants of Canaan. (Who, by the way were not Philistines either.) Those Canaanites who lived and remained after the Hebrews conquered the area after leaving four-hundred years of slavery in Egypt eventually intermarried with the Hebrews and became a part of the ethnic group that became Israel. The Philistines were interlopers from across the sea…and they were not Semitic peoples.
If the truth were told, the descendants of Ishmael are the only true Arabs. The modern day definition of who is an Arab being anyone born and raised speaking Arabic not-withstanding. The so-called “Palestinians”, if the truth were told are a mix of Egyptians (Not Arabs) since Egypt existed well before Abraham, and descendants of Babylonian peoples from Iraq. (These peoples are all called Arabs now because the Arab tribes, under the Islamic fervor of Jihad waged war across the region and won. Once Islam was forced on these peoples, Arabic became the dominant language, Arabic culture became the dominant culture, and hence…today these peoples call themselves Arabs.)
But, I digress….
As I was saying above, the United States is casting off its former support of Israel. Once again, the U.S. State Department along with the Bush Administration is calling vocally for the dividing of land God gave to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. The foolish, head-strong, very unpopular, ultimately unwise leadership of Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert is threatening Israel’s very existence through making “gestures of appeasement…bending on such issues as the so-called “Palestinians” right of return, making no efforts to make certain Jews in Israel are safe from either terror attacks or a possible coming war with Syria, and all the U.S. seems capable of is patting Olmert on the head like the good, whipped dog he is, while taking all the good bones from his dish and giving them to the rabid, slavering maw of the Islamic forces within the Greater Israel area. (Indeed, the U.S. has become an appeaser of evil in the entire Middle East and has begun humbling herself, not to the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob…that God that the U.S. founders found it necessary to invoke even upon all currency of the nation…but to Islam, and the demon god Allah.
What is the answer for Jews in the United States? Shall we moan and groan to our Congressmen who by and large care nothing for what really happens? Do Jews leave the fate of their brothers and sisters in Israel up to the decisions of the Gentiles?
In reality, the future and fate of the Israelis and Jews inside the United States is not truly the responsibility of the Gentiles of any nation. If a Gentile is a Christian or a Noahide, it is their God given responsibility to bless Israel in order that they be blessed. But, it is the responsibility of the Jew to do what God would have the Jew do…and that is to no longer make his home in the lands of exile. It is the responsibility, and right of the Jew in North America, Europe, and all the corners of the world in which the Jew has lived for thousands of years to now come to the home which God gave to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in the beginning. It is the Jew’s birthright, and one which God has sprung into being in our days. It is the responsibility of Jews outside Israel to make the decision to make the inside of Israel his home. It is then the responsibility of the Jew to seize the gifts God has given and to never give one inch to those who have no Promise from God regarding those gifts. God has given Ishmael his own gifts…the Land of Israel has never been one of them. The gifts God has given the Jew, are not gifts given to any other people (lest people think I am being unfair…consider the continents of the Earth…all the land outside the Land of Israel belongs to the rest of the World…they are gifts given by God to the peoples of the Earth, all Non-Jews…why should they covet Israel?)
It is the responsibility of the Jew, like King David, to place all his trust in HaShem, and stand before the Goliaths of the world…all those nations who condemn, who cry out in anger that the Jew has a home, who shove, and bully, and dictate…and say “The borders of the Biblical Israel are our borders once again. You may live anywhere outside these borders…you are welcome as our guests. But this is our Land.” And to the Jew’s enemies say “The borders of the Biblical Israel are a line in the sand. Do not cross it. You may come that far, but no further.”
Then, like David, collectively the Jew must take his sling and with five smooth stones stand and defend the beautiful present HaShem has given.
