Attack is Israel’s best defense

When Secretary of State Hillary Clinton deceitfully declared before the U.S. Senate Foreign Relation committee that eight years of isolation of Iran by the United States has not brought us an inch closer to a resolution – she cleverly misled her audience.

What she could – and should – have said, is that all the political maneuverings and half-hearted boycott measures brought against Iran by her country have thus far done little if anything to stop Ahmadinejad from pursuing nuclear weapons; nor has it dampened the ardor with which he publicly and repeatedly announces his intention to finish off what Hitler left of the Jewish people – now gathered again in their homeland.

That would have been an honest appraisal of the ineffectiveness, not only of U.S. policy so far, but of the preferred international community’s policy of “political engagement and pressure” over a military option, a military option Israel rightly sees as soon being the only one she has to save this nation from another holocaust.

To have the U.S. and Europe talk now about a third withdrawal – this time from Judea and Samaria so that a Palestinian State can be formed there – is to ask Israel to commit suicide, something hopefully no Israeli government would be prepared to do.

There is the very strong possibility that the Iranian-supported Hamas, which already controls half of the to-be-established future Palestinian Muslim State in Gaza, will soon also control what the world calls the “West Bank” after the demise of Abu Mazen’s corrupted Palestinian Authority.

Israel withdrew twice already: unilaterally from South Lebanon (for peace!) and got a Hizbollah terrorist state on her northern border; a second time (for peace!) from Gaza, in exchange for which she received an Iranian-backed Hamas terrorist state on her southern border.

The world should be aggressively addressed by all of Israel’s leaders, whether political or religious – that in view of Ahmadinejad’s constant ravings and chronic denial of the Holocaust (that saddest chapter of Jewish history), combined with the compliance or silence of much of the world (as happened during the days of Hitler’s ravings) that no nation in the world, neither American nor European, has any moral right to dictate to the people of Israel the policy they should follow to survive.

Jerusalem needs to stand up to this world that, with its dearth of clarity and courage in dealing with these renewed monsters, threatens not only any prospect for peace, but the very existence of the nation of Israel.

The PLO was instituted in 1964 three years before the six day war in June 1967 when Israel, in a war of self-defense, recovered the so-called “West Bank”, now seen and proclaimed by nearly everybody as the quintessence crux of the Middle East problem.
This however shows that the PLO (All Palestine needs to be liberated) was not formed to erect a Palestinian state on the ‘so called’ West Bank but was instituted to replace all of Israel with a Muslim Palestinian State.

The New Testament Basis for the Restoration of Israel

Jesus was asked by His disciples whether He would restore the kingdom to Israel at that time, to which He replied:
Therefore, when they had come together, they asked Him, saying, “Lord, will You at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?” And He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or seasons which the Father has put in His own authority.
