The Miracle of Zionism

"Israel is the only nation in the world that is governing itself in the same territory, under the same name, and with the same religion and same language as it did 3,000 years ago." - Historian Barbara Tuchman

"Israel is the only nation on the face of the earth that was created by a sovereign act of God" - Pastor John Hagee

"All things are mortal but the Jew; all other forces pass, but he remains. What is the secret of his immortality?" - Author / Atheist, Mark Twain (long before the Holocaust and Israeli-Jewish statehood)

"They are the most glorious nation that ever inhabited this Earth. The Romans and their Empire were but a Bauble in comparison of the Jews. They have given religion to three quarters of the Globe and have influenced the affairs of Mankind more, and more happily, than any other Nation ancient or modern." - President John Adams - His 1808 response letter criticizing the depiction of Jews by the French Enlightenment philosopher Voltaire.

Hanukkah - A Celebration of Zionism

I can't help but get vexed when I see President Bush taking part in an annual White House celebration of Hanukkah knowing that for most of his presidency he pushed for a Israel-annihilating Islamic-terrorist state while pressuring Israel with the cutting off of load grantees to make the ancient Jewish land of Gaza Jew-free, or as the Nazis used to say, "judenrein". This is especially troublesome when considering the fact that during the Hamonean wars Gaza was retaken under the grandson of Simeon Maccabee - Alexander Janneus (103 - 76 BCE). Watching Bush participate in a Hanukkah celebration is kind of like watching some draft-dodger celebrate the 4th. of July. For Bush to participate in anything that has to do with Hanukkah is nothing short of him being a political hypocrite.
The story of Hanukkah is one of Jewish sovereignty within their own Jewish-land. The Jewish events of 167-164 BCE demonstrates what Israel needs today - a modern Maccabean Revolt, and not only against Israel's surrounding Islamic-terrorists enemies, but against the current "land for supposedly-peace" spiritually-weak Israeli government as well!
Much of what Israel is facing today they faced during the time of the Maccabean period.
  • The Seleucids had a problem with Jewish sovereignty within the land of their ancient forefathers just like the Palestinians and all Muslim nations do today. In fighting for such rights both spiritual and legal, modern Israeli War of Independence and the Six Day War mimics the Maccabean won autonomy.
  • Like Haman, more than three hundred years before him, Antiochus Epiphanes (Antiochus IV) had a real problem with Jews practicing Judaism within their own ancestral land and wanted all forms of such practices be forever annihilated. (Esther 3:8 / I Maccabees 1:41-49 / II Maccabees 6:1-2). Likewise, devoted Islamic governments of today such as Hamas, also have a real problem with Jews practicing Judaism within their own ancestral land and want it forever annihilated! Article 11 of the Hamas Covenant states: "Any procedure in contradiction to Islamic Sharia, where Palestine is concerned, is null and void" while Article 28 of the same covenant states: "Israel, Judaism and Jews challenge Islam and the Muslim people. May the cowards never sleep." And the first things to be burned of Jewish property after they left Gaza in August, 2005 was the synagogues as with all synagogues the world-over that the Islamic enemies can get their Islamic hands on.
  • The Maccabees also had their share of Jewish enemies to battle as well. The pro-Hellas Jew who brought a pig to sacrifice on the alter at Modin (I Maccabees 2:23) foreshadowed all the modern Jewish-liberal peaceniks both in Israel and abroad. Like the Jewish pig- sacrificer in Maccabean times, the modern Jewish pacifists are willing to sellout all that Zionism stands for including their own Jewish sovereignty within their ancestral homeland. Instead of fighting those who fight against Jewish sovereignty, and like their ancient Jewish Hellenized brothers, they seek to appease again and again, the enemies of the covenant. They wish to see the Jewish nation (with or without the State of Israel) become like all the other Gentile nations that has no covenant with God, which is goes against the very reason Israel has been gather back into his homeland in this modern era to begin with (Deuteronomy 7:6 / Ezekiel 37:21).
  • Today's reward for Quartet-compliance is nothing new to the Jewish nation. The Quartet-appeasing Israeli government get billions of dollars from the US (the main member of the Quartet) and can therefore use a lot this compliance-money on "Evacuation and Compensation Bills". "Evacuations and compensation" meaning compensating Jews who are willing to forsake their God-given covenant and ancestral land for the sake being honored by the Gentiles and receiving covenant-sellout money! The principle remains the same as the commandment of Antiochus IV rings through Quartet: "Now therefore come thou first, and fulfill the king's commandment, like as all the heathen have shalt thou and thy house be in the number of the king's friends, and thou and thy children shall be honored with silver and gold, and many rewards." - I Maccabees 2:18
For me Hanukkah represents the continuance of the everlasting covenant God has with Israel. It gives me a charge every time I read Mattathais' response to Antiochus IV: "I and my sons and my brethren walk in the covenant of our fathers. God forbid that we should forsake the law and the ordinances. We will not hearken to the king's words, to go from our religion, either on the right hand, ot the left." And after he slayed the Hellenized-Jew pig-sacrificer, he stated: "Whosoever is zealous of the law, and maintaineth the covenant, let him follow me." -Maccabees 2:20-22, 27
Oh, if modern Israel could just follow Mattathais Maccabee in his zeal that he showed to the Quartet of his day over two thousand years ago, how much better off they would be? Why, it would be the messianic age! And speaking of the messiah, he is represented by the in the "shamash" or "servant" candle usually centered with four candles on each side (see picture above) that is used to light the other eight candle of a Hanukkah menorah. This is only fitting since the messiah is heavily linked to the covenant that the Maccabees were so zealous for (Ezekiel 37:25 / Jeremiah 33:15).
Christians and even Muslims, and most especially the Israel / Jew haters of these religions, should be very appreciative for the Maccabean revolts of 167 BCE and more importantly the Jewish triumph of 164 BCE. Without a victory over the Seleucid enemy that was intending to wipe out all sources of Jewish identity and religion within the Jewish homeland in 164 BCE, there never would have been a Jewish Israel for Jesus of Jewish-Nazareth to come to 164 years later (Matthew 15:24 / St. John 1:11). And with no establishment of Christianity there would be no Islam either 1. What makes this so ironic is: Islam owes its very existence to Jewish victory wars that were based upon the covenant and Zionism (Jewish sovereignty within the land called "Israel" not Palestine)!
I believe that the "Miracle of Hanukkah" where just one sealed flask of untainted oil - enough for only a single day for the rededication of the temple (Hanukkah means dedication) that ended up lasting eight days, is a testimony every year to the world of the everlasting covenant God has with Israel. The number seven is one of "completion" as in completing a full week, while the number eight is one of renewal or rebirth connecting a seemingly end to the beginning, causing there to be no end! Even our English number "8" is written in a style that ends where it began causing no written indications of a starting or stopping points. So each night of this and every Hanukkah season when I light the eight candled menorah, I'll be thinking of the covenant that the God of Israel has with the Jewish people that God Himself has declared will never end (Jeremiah 31:35-36 / 33: 25-26) and of the men like Mattithais and Judah Maccabee of which God has used in keeping His covenant ever-preserved.

Interesting Facts:
A. It has been suggested that the Maccabean Revolt may have been the first ever fight centered solely around "religious freedom".
B. Hanukkah is referred to in the New Testament: St. John 10:22.
C. The Hanukkah season has no pagan influences and is strictly Jewish originated (II Maccabees 10:8) unlike December 25th. that has connections with
Attis, Mitra, Dionysus and the prophet Jeremiah condemns the early emergence of the Christmas Tree (Jeremiah10:3-4). Since ancient times (where there was no artificial lights) Hanukkah lights have been lighting up the darkest part of the year in the northern hemisphere.
D. "...on November 30, 1964 the UN Truce Supervision Organization demanded in writing that Israel stop the traditional display of lights on the festival of Hanukkah atop Mt. Scopus because of Jordanian sensitivities" - "The Fight for Jerusalem" by Dore Gold - page 158.
E. In 1993 more than 10,000 homes in Billings, Montana were displaying newspaper-printed menorahs due the a certain antisemitic incident where a cement stone crashed through a window of a Jewish home displaying the menorah. The cry of the town' s people was, "Not in Our Town".
1. Islam is heavily based upon Christianity and of course Judaism. Sura 19 of the Koran is entitled, "Maryam" or "Mary" after the mother of Jesus. In fact Mary is the only woman mentioned in the Koran and she is actually mentioned more in the Koran than in the New Testament itself! New Testament characters such as Zacharias and John are also mentioned in the Koran. Jesus (Isa in Arabic) is considered a highly regarded prophet of Islam (Suras 3:42-53 / 42:13) and "the People of the Book" meaning Christians and Jews, is a common phrase throughout the Koran. These "People of the Book" according to the hadiths, played great influence on Mohammad. Even the New Testament "Angel of Annunciation" - Gabriel (Jabril in Arabic) was responsible for not only informing Mary she would have the child Jesus, he also was responsible for giving Mohammad the very revelations of the Koran (sura 2:97). I personally believe that the Islamic prayer beads
(Misbaha or Tasbih) are religiously connected to Catholic prayer beads (Rosaries).

Criticizing Israel While Refusing to Recognize Their Covenant with The God of Israel

There are two types of criticism of Israel:
  1. A constructive criticism that at its core motive is to support Israel against his enemies or is based upon Israel's compliance with their covenant that they have with the God of Israel, which also supports Israel against his enemies.
  2. A criticism that comes from a willingness (not a reluctance) to paint Israel in a bad light while contending with his enemies, thereby supporting Israel's enemies.
I personally criticize Israel all the time for their noncompliance to the covenant while at the same time I stand ready and willing to defend Israel come hail or high water based upon that very covenant that they continually fail to conform to. This is not the case with Israel's true enemies. They seek to criticize Israel for doing anything remotely close to what seems to be covenant-based.
For Israel to drive his enemies out of their covenanted land (Ex. 34:24 Deut. 4:38 / 7:1 Joel 3:2) that would in turn make Israel terrorism / terrorist-free would be seen among the Gentile nations as the greatest war crime ever among the nations, while most of Israel's response to unprovoked attacks upon their citizens are seen somehow as acts of aggression. When Israel moved away from the covenant during Gaza expulsion in August 2005, it resulted in more rockets coming into Israel from Gaza within two years than the entire period of the so-called occupation of Gaza (1967-2005). Yet the Quartet applauded and even demanded such a move of Israel's withdraw from Gaza. This is more proof added to the Gentile world history that they love "dead Jews" and are willing seeking by political means the death of Israel - the state of the Jews!
Any criticism of Israel should always be based upon whether Israel is in compliance with their God-given covenant. No criticism should ever be based upon what's politically correct and most especially when it's coming form the Quartet. When criticism of Israel is based outside the covenant's (Bible) parameters, such criticism has already been spiritually corrupted to begin with. The covenant-rejectors of the world will never support any political ideas that even remotely supports a portion of the everlasting covenant God has with Israel. They can't because they are spiritually tied to the rejection of the covenant and therefore the death of Israel.
If criticizing Israel is not based upon "the covenant" and all its principles, then that very criticism has to be based upon an attempt to conform Israel to a position that is outside all that "the covenant" spiritually means to and calls Israel to be. There is no way around that, for there is no in between. This is why tiny Israel brings such a huge spiritual decision to the nations of the world, and depending on how one views Israel's place in the world determines a great deal on how close to the God of the covenant they are!
There is a spiritual reason as to why the Palestinians are called just that - "Palestinians". They've adopted that name which is derived from Roman Emperor Hadrian renaming the covenanted land of Israel to "Palestine" after the Bar Kochba revolt in 135 CE of which thousands of Jews were slaughtered and then ever forbidden to enter Jerusalem - the city of David renamed Aelia Capitolina by Hadrian, and then later renamed Al-Quds by the Muslims.
Therefore, like the "Philistines" from whom Hadrian's renaming of Israel came, the name "Palestine" is spiritually associated and linked with Jew-slaughter but more importantly with "covenant denial" of Jewish habitation within the land of Israel. Is there any spiritual-wonder as to why the Palestinians' "final solution" from which they chant are "from the river (Jordan) to the sea (Mediterranean)"?,7340,L-3236542,00.html
If the Palestinians, with their Hamas-electing tendencies, their Islamic-jihad asperations, their shahid-suicide bomb supporting culture, their arms-struggle for all of Palestine goals, and their very cause as a people by which their very name reveals are not "pro-covenant" towards the land of Israel and the Jews, then their entire cause on any and every level is simply "anti-covenant". Therefore, any backing or support of these anti-covenant Palestinians in their endeavors against Israel in whatever form or however intended, spiritually becomes "anti-covenant" period!
All Palestinian / Islamic terrorism is totally based upon the side of "anti-covenant" - the fulfillment of the Jewish return to the land of their forefathers (Ezekiel 37:22-28). Their spiritual Islamic goal is specifically set to deny the Jews their fulfillment of prophecy from their God Jehovah in order that they may honor of their god Allah, and that Islam be the superior of all religions (Koran 8:39 / 9:33).
Perhaps even without knowing it every Israeli response to anti-covenant based terrorism has been an attempt to indeed put an end to this Palestinian "anti-covenant" terrorism. There is no part of Palestinian terrorism that is not anti-covenant based of which Israel is trying to stop. Therefore, such anti-terrorism based response can only be a "pro-covenant" response being that it promotes circumstances and conditions for Israel that is closer to all that the covenant actually declares and stands for - the Jewish people living in peace and safety in the land of their forefathers (Deuteronomy 33:28-29 / Ezekiel 36:33-38)!
When I hear someone criticizing Israel's policies, I immediately check their motive. Are they wishing for Israel to conform to their God-given covenant or are they wishing Israel to conform to a Gentile policy that is in fact outside, or even denies their covenant with God? Again, any criticism of Israel outside "covenant criticism" is a criticism that is based on anti-covenantism!
When one is convinced that the Christians are the "new" covenant people replacing the Jews based upon Galatians 6:15-16 (replacement theology) or that the Muslims have replaced the Jews as "God's chosen" based upon sura 3:110 (Islamic replacement theology) then their criticism will most always be based upon their spiritual willingness, and certainly never a spiritual reluctance, to criticize Israel both spiritually and therefore politically whether they realize it or not.
It doesn't matter how right and justified Israel may be on any given issue, critics of Israel will always find a way to criticize Israel, and or, criticize anyone who defends Israel in their justification. This is why it is helpful to know a person's general stance on the issue of Israel itself. Whatever the stance or mindset that one has towards Israel to begin with, it will generally come out in the form of criticism, being either "for" or "against" the everlasting covenant God has with His people as fully depicted throughout the Hebrew scriptures.
The accusation against those who chose to defend Israel stating that such a person believes "Israel can do no wrong" usually (not always) comes from someone who believes "Israel can do no right" or at least has the mindset and holds to their Christian / Islamic belief that Israel has no covenant when it comes to dealing with Palestinian terrorism. The victim-villain role-switch of "Israeli aggression and Palestinian victimization" has been a "anti-Israel / anti Jewish" method used by all of Israel's enemies including the world media for quite a long time. Again, the very covenant itself should be the over-all deciding factor on any given issue concerning the Jewish Israelis. And this certainly includes any issues concerning the so-called occupied areas of Gaza and the West Bank of which so happens to be part of the covenant (Joshua 15).
Some of the questions I ask myself on every action the State of Israel expresses include:
  • Does such action promote or is inline with biblical principles including all of the Torah?
  • Is such actions agree or disagree with all biblical prophecies concerning the Jews and the nation of Israel?
  • Does such actions please the Gentile nations (namely the Quartet) more than it pleases the God of their covenant, and vice-versa?
  • Does such actions help, advance, support, encourage, influence, and excite Israel's enemies, or does it deter, discourage, hinder, frighten, and prevent Israel enemies from committing unproved attacks against Israel be it military or civilians?
  • Are such actions in direct support the everlasting covenant God has with His Jewish people, or are they in total contempt of the covenant?
The people who are willing to openly criticize Israel over their so-called "disproportionate response" every time Israel is attacked but are ever so silent over the initial attack against Israel in the first place, demonstrates that they are more concerned for the welfare of Israel's enemies who has no everlasting covenant with God than the Jewish Israelis themselves who do have an everlasting covenant with God. They are more willing that Israel be handcuffed in response in the name of "disproportionate response" than Israel attackers be handcuffed for their very terrorism! They do this regardless how such handcuffing Israel encourages the initial attackers (Israel's enemies) to continue their attacking! It blows my pro-covenant mind!
Those who cry, "disproportionate" are for the most part "disproportionate" in their criticism of Israel verses their criticism of Israel's enemies! This is quite ironic when it's Israel enemies that always (and I do mean always) starts any and all confrontations - always! The "Israel can do no wrong" jab that is so often used by Israel's critics should be met with the fact that "yes, Israel actually has "done no wrong" by starting a war or initiating a terrorist attack"!
This verbal comeback should make them stop and think of Israel's non-conflictual nature that they have demonstrated throughout their 60-plus year history in trying to do everything that they can to make peace with the Palestinians and with all their Muslims-Islamic neighbors around them. However, such an explicit reality still won't keep the disproportionate-concept factor that is embedded in the minds of these disproportionate-critics from taking center stage on Palestinian / Hezbollah-terrorism issues, while the guilty party of who started the entire conflict to begin with is completely forgotten and is willfully overlooked. This willful and blatant injustice happens because these Israel critics' mindsets are not covenant-based but anti-covenant based!
When the 2003 EU survey declared Israel as "the most dangerous country in the world" ahead of Iran, Korea, and Venezuela, it showed how the white Christian Europeans have this inner hatred for Jewish Israel. And call me crazy, but I believe such an antisemitic result is due to Israelis being non-Christian and God's chosen people (and many of them non-white) all at the same time. Most all critics of Israel (especially the world media) who are eagerly willing to criticize Israel outside the everlasting covenant, I find much of this EU survey results resonates within them as well.
The cartoon above depicts perfectly the "world of Israeli criticism" (a world that influences some more than others). Charges of "hurting of civilians" and "escalating the violence" under the banner of "disproportionate response" keeps the world focused not on Israel's enemies and what Israel's enemies initiates in the form of terrorism towards innocent Israeli civilians, but on Israel! Israel is then seen as Christ-denying Jews, who are so dangerous in the world in wanting to hurt the poor Palestinians and the poor people of Lebanon just like they wanted to hurt Jesus1, when all the poor jihadists are wanting to do is annihilate the most dangerous country ever known to Europe - Israel.
If it is true that an once of prevention is worth a pound of cure, then the bottom line answer to the Israeli "disproportionate response" question is quite simple: If Israel is never attacked by unprovoked terrorism, the world would never find itself in a position nor the need to criticize Israel for what they see as disproportionate response! Again, that's bottom line! Any other reasoning automatically calls for the acceptance of terrorism against the Jews as a norm of which cannot be fixed nor address as the biggest obstacle towards the solution to the problem. Of course when the annihilation of the State of Israel is their inner most goals by reason of anti-covenantism then who whats to address the "real" and "only" solution to Palestinian / Hezbollah terrorism? But to point out their hypocrisy - their unjust criticism: if all the energy that it takes to get the world wound up over Israeli responses to Jewish civilian murder and use that energy as they should against the initial and premeditated terrorist attackers, then the terrorist attackers themselves might just consider it twice before carrying out their Jew-murdering attacks on Israeli citizens!
As it currently stands, the world offers the Palestinian and Hezbollah Islamic terrorists the enjoyment of a win-win situation. Their initial premeditated terrorist attacks that target innocent Jewish civilians are almost completely overlooked by world governments, world media, and general populations, while any and all Israelis responses are criticized as "disproportionate". In this way these terrorists are backed by the world by making Israel the villain and the Palestinians / Hezbollah (people of Lebanon) the victim - a spiritual / political role-switch. The world doesn't want to hold the Palestinians accountable for anything and make Israel accountable in order to blame them for something the Palestinians started!
This is also the reason that Palestinian and Hezbollah terrorist hide behind their own civilians when Israel is hot on their tail in pursuit. If either the civilian (human shield) or the terrorist is killed by Israeli forces, the civilian and the terrorist both becomes Islamic shahid martyrs. They know all too well that Israel will be condemned by the world for making either their human-shield or the terrorist a martyr, and that the terrorist that initially caused the civilian to be a human shield to begin with will never be condemned or even mentioned for that matter! All because the world for the most part, hates Jews and Israel (elements of the covenant) of whom they seek to paint in a evil-light any chance that they get!
All in all, the complete answer to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is the full implementation of the everlasting covenant that the God of Israel has with His Jewish people throughout the land as the Palestinians like to say, "from the river to the sea". The further away Israel gets from their covenant with their God the more they will find themselves among world (Gentile)-overlooked Islamic terrorism. There, I just criticized Israel - the right way!
Covenant prophecy:
Moreover the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah, saying,
Considerest thou not what this people have spoken, saying, The two families which the LORD hath chosen, he hath even cast them off? thus they have despised my people, that they should be no more a nation before them. Thus saith the LORD; If my covenant be not with day and night, and if I have not appointed the ordinances of heaven and earth; Then will I cast away the seed of Jacob, and David my servant, so that I will not take any of his seed to be rulers over the seed of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob: for I will cause their captivity to return, and have mercy on them. - Jeremiah 33: 23-26

sheikh Ahmed Yassin (whom the Israelis righteously sent a missile into his lions on March 22, 2004) as being nailed upon the Christian-cross while the Jews were rejoicing.

Islam's Truth and the Liberal's Unbelief of it

As a patriotic American Zionist seeing the ever growing threat to America and especially Israel (our most loyal ally) I have dedicated myself to know Islam from its very foundation up. Basically, I want to know Western civilization’s main enemy through and through and I want to encourage all non-Muslims to do likewise. Take it upon yourself to learn the differences between Dar al-Islam and Dar al-harb and what they mean through the eyes of traditional Islam. Educate yourself of the unspoken sixth pillar of Islam - jihad upon which the spread of Islam was founded. Come to know how the ignorance of Islam gives way to ignorance of jihad and how such ignorance leaves one with the inability to refute lies coming from the Islamic spokepersons who claim that jihad (or the so-called ‘greater jihad‘) is an inner spiritual struggle.

Organizations such as C.A.I. R. (Council on American-Islamic Relations) and O.I.C. (Organized Islamic Council) seek to popularize Islam in America using al-takiyah (Islamic deception for the sake of, and the advancement of Islam) as part of their goal for Islam to take full control over all of Western civilization. Once you have learned their tactics in using al-takiyah you will be able to see beyond the “moderate Muslims” who themselves serve as a cover for the jihadists, and see global-jihad more clearly.

Islam-phobia” is a term most often used by concerned-free idiots (mostly liberals) who are clueless about Islam but reason out what they want to believe about Islam or what they think Islam should be in their liberal world. Most often these liberals are the first to be sold on the al-takiyah notion that Islam is a “religion of peace” and that the “radicals” have hijacked this religion, never questioning the silence of the so-called moderates. It’s sad, but most Western leaders (even the conservative ones - Bush and Blair being to most notable ones) have bought into this al-takiyah religion-of-peace lie due to their ignorance or unwillingness to learn the jihadic truth of Islam.

It’s very important to know (and don’t let the takiyahists tell you any different) that “true Islam” is structured around sharia law. One of the questions I enjoy asking the "radical-Islam is true-Islam" deniers is whether or not sharia law is considered "radical" in their minds. Once we have come to an agreement on the burdens sharia law places upon the community it rules over and is therefore considered "radical" in both mindsets of liberals and conservatives, I then get them to try and explain how "sharia law" in and of itself is not "true" Islam.
Sharia law is to Islam what halacha law (Jewish law) is to Judaism. Sharia law is based upon the Koran and hadiths (commentary on the Koran and Mohammad’s acts) while halacha law is based upon the Hebrew Bible and the Talmud (biblical commentary). To Islam the hadiths are eye witnessed accounts of how Muhammad responded to certain situations and how he conduced his daily life. These accounts are all subject to determining sharia law. For example, you won’t find anywhere in the Koran how young a girl can be to become married. However, because the fifty-two year old Mohammad (the "excellent exemplar for him who hopes in Allah" according to sura 33:21 of the Koran) wanted to satisfy himself with a nine year old child, sharia law now dictates that a nine year old girl can be married to a man of any age. Today in sharia law-ran Iran, girls nine years old can become wifes of middle age (need I say sick?) Muslim men.

My challenge to any Imam, Islamic scholar, Islamic apologist, C.A.I.R. spokesperson, or any willfully ignorant liberal (politician or otherwise) who thinks Islam in and of itself is peaceful and harmless, is to show me from the foundations of Islam beginning with Mohammad himself, to Islam’s 1300 year history, where Islam ever operated outside of a dictatorship / caliphate. I’m not from Missouri but I need a Muslim or a ignorant liberal (or conservative) to show me a few things:
  • Show me where sharia law allows for "freedom of religion" and "freedom of expression" towards any religion outside of Islam.

  • Show me where sharia law dictates anything close to the Western ideology concerning woman’s rights and treatment of women.

  • Show me where the State of Israel (or any form of Jewish sovereignty within the ancient homeland of the Jews) has a place in a world ruled by sharia law.

  • Show me where “freedom to assemble” in a newly constructed place of worship taller than the nearest mosque is permissible under sharia law.

  • Show me where sharia law allows “freedom of the press” especially when it comes to Danish political cartoons depicting Muhammad. Come on now, show me!

  • Show me under sharia law where the religion of Islam is to be separated for the government and nor part of the government itself and how Islam wasn't set up to be both government and religion in and of itself from Mohammad on.
Warning to willfully ignorant liberals who have a bleeding heart for Islam, as to what Islamic sharia law proscribes that your bleeding hearts may not like very much:
  • A man to have up to four wives is at liberty to beat them as he feels the need. See Koran sura 4:34. “Honor killings” which in reality is Islamic "honor-murder" go hand in hand with this portion of sharia law.

  • The man's testimony and inheritance is twice that of the woman. See Koran: sura 2:282 and sura 4:11. As we see in places like Iran and Saudi Arabia this Koranic / sharia law plays heavy on female rape victims of which also by sharia law standards needs four witnesses to support their story (sura 24:4).

  • The stoning of an adulterer (especially women). See hadith: Bukhari volume 6, book 60, number 79. This can include female rape victims who doesn't have the four needed male witnesses to convict the rapist leaving her with the appearence that she had sex wuth a male who is not her husband.

  • The flogging of the alcohol drinkers. See Koran sura 5:90-91 and hadith: Muslim book 017, number 4226.

  • Cutting the hand off of the thief. See Koran: sura 5:38.

  • Cutting off hands and feet of those speaking against Muhammad. See Koran: sura 5:33. Dutch cartoonists would be, shall I say, totally out of commission.

  • The killing of those who leave Islam. See Koran: sura 4:89.

  • The woman to be covered with a hijab (woman's head covering). See Koran: sura 24:31

What about Islam's "no compulsion in religion"?

Abrogation (nasikh in Arabic) of one verse or revelation for another is very common in the Koran (see sura 2:106 and 16:100). One tactic a takiyah spokesperson will use is placing verses in the Koran (ayat in Arabic) outside their stage of revelation. As the developments that surrounded Mohammad changed during his false prophethood, so did his revelations. The more power and influence he gained the more aggressive his revelations became concerning non-Muslims and all those who opposed him. The famous verse that all takiyah Muslims of the world love to quote is where Mohammad states, "There is no compulsion religion" (sura 2:56). However what the takiyah Muslims won't tell Westerners about this revelation is the fact that this revelation came several years before the revelation of jihad. 1 So what the takiyah Muslims will do before Western eyes is quote such verses that came prior to the "jihad revelation" and try passing it off as the absolute and final word that the Koran has to say on the subject, knowing full well that a revelation of jihad soon followed and abrogated that very verse they just quoted!

Sayid Qutb is one of the modern radical Islam founders. His book "Milestones" has been banned in many Muslim countries by Muslim dictators who don't want to give up their dictatorship to a government that is ran under sharia law. What makes "Milestones" so threatening is that it correctly places the stages of Mohammad's life with his revelations found in the Koran leading up to the last and final jihad revelations. The fact that no Imam or Mullah could disprove Qutb facts (showing that radical Islam under sharia law is "true Islam") finally cost him his life and his books to be banned.

Qutb's layout of the escalating stages leading up to jihad along with my thoughts are as follows:
  • Stage one - the false prophet was commanded "to read" (sura 96:1-5) though illiterate. This began his false prophethood by which he had not yet began his ministry.

  • Stage two - In this stage of thirteen years the false prophet only preached without usage of the sword and without forcing the dhimmi (a subjugated infidel under a Muslim caliphate-ruler) to pay jizyah - a special inflated "protection tax". It was during this stage he was building power and influence among friends, family, relatives. and tribesmen who would listen. It was also during this stage that he wasn't too negative in his revelations towards the Jews because he was hoping to bring them to his revelations peaceably.

  • Stage three - After Mohammad fled to Medinah from Mecca (the hajrah in 622 CE) he was able to gather an army. His revelations then allowed him to actually fight but to fight with only those who fought him. Forcing all Christian and Jews pay the special "protection tax - jazyah was still out of reach at this stage. Those who didn't make war with him, he was content to leave alone - for the time being. It is from this third but non-final stage that such revelations of fighting only the non-Muslims that made war with Muslims that today's modern takiyah Muslims will point to in order to paint jihad as being only a defensive struggle: "Permission to fight is given to those on whom war is made, because they are oppressed. And surely Allah is able to assist them" - sura 22:39. Then, to add al-takiyah upon al-takiyah, they will throw in the seemingly proof-text of "no compulsion in religion" (sura 2:256) to back that "jihad- defense only" takiyah claim up. They will do this playing on Western ignorance by willfully hiding the fact that there is a "next stage" of the false prophet's life and the "revelation of jihad" that goes with it! What most Westerns don't realize due to their ignorance of Islamic history is that if the above defense-only revelation and the others like it had remained the final revelation on the subject of jihad and Islamic war principles, then Islam would have never had the vast and rapid expansion it experienced during its first century and a half of existence. This includes all of Arabia being conquered (not freely converted) within Mohammad's lifetime. Because Mohammad wasn't satisfied with communities such as Khaybar and Mecca living outside the rule of his Isalm, jihad literally took on a whole new meaning and revelation immediately after he obtained a sizeable army while the earlier references of jihad and war that he had received with a lesser sized army (like the one above) became abrogated (sura 2:106 / 16:101).

  • Stage four (the jihad stage) - After Mohammad gained a big enough army he then began pulling off raids that graduated into full scale battles finally culminating in the conquering of all of Arabia. It was during this stage that peace treaties that had no expiration date were given four months to either join Mohammad or be considered an enemy where they would have to fight with Mohammad's army (sura 9:1-2). The very fact that Mohammad would cancel a treaty whereby no treat to him was given proves him to be the aggressor and that jihad is not simply a "defensive struggle" by Koranic standards. This jihad revelation allowed Jews and Christians (people of the book) to continue their faith but in order to do so, they now must start paying the jizyah protection tax as dhimmis as an open declaration of their submission to Islamic rule. According to the last words of sura 9:29 the dhimmis must be "brought low" and that "they must feel being subservient". With the pagans of Arabia (of whom kept peaceful treaties) given only four months to decide to convert or fight, and of Jews and Christians being forced to pay a high tax in order to continue to practice their religion, where is that good old "no compulsion in religion" now in this jihad stage consisting of the "new" jihad revelation? Can we in the West not see the abrogation of the "no compulsion in religion" revelation?
Before Mohammad's revelation of jihad the people of Arabia were not placed into categories by the Muslims. Only after Mohammad became a force was there then a need for treaties. People were placed into categories who had treaties with Mohammad and those who were without a treaty. The tribes that had treaties with Mohammad as well as those who remained without treaties didn't seek to fight with him. They had all converted to Islam (perhaps to aviod war with Mohammad) by the time their four month grace period had expired. This left only three categories concerning all the people of the world. One, being the Muslim. Two, being the dhimmi (person of the book) who submitted themselves to Islamic rule. Three, being the infidel that is at war with Islam.
There is only two domains or abodes in the world as seen through the eyes of Islam "dar al-Islam" and "dar al-harb" . The first two kinds of people (the Muslim and the dhimmi) abide in the "House of Islam" dar al-Islam, and those that are at war with Islam abide in the "House of War" dar al-harb. Wikipedia defines the Arabic term "harbi" as "one under a declaration of war" and "one of whom is non-Muslim and does not live under the rule of Islam". 2 Since the revelation of jihad there can be no true treaties with the House of War as dictated in the Koran's jihad revelation. Just like the pagans who had treaties with Mohammad and those who didn't - to live outside of Muslim rule peaceably yet not subdued was not an option! So is it today in bringing this jihad revelation (that was never canceled out being the very last of revelations) into the modern world. Today, most all of Western civilization comes under dar al-harb House of War given Mohammad's jihad revelation.
Ibn Taymiyah, is a well known and respected fourteeth-century jurist in Islamic law and he stated many centuries before 9/11 and all the modern jihad terrorism that we see today: "Any act of war against Dar al-Harb is morally and legally justified, and exempt from any ethical judgment." So when the al-takiyah Muslims quotes you the "no compulsion in religion" reading in the Koran, ask them how such a learned and respected Islamic scholar like Taymiyah could get it so wrong. Then watch them flinch big-time and try to avoid any further discussion concerning Islam.
It becomes obvious when looking through the lens of the Koran in all of its stages of revelations that Al-Queda, Hamas, Hizbollah, and the like, are not hijackers of the Islam but indeed true Muslims following in the same footsteps of Mohammad and Allah-given revelations! The actual hijackers of Islam would be the moderate Muslims who only take part of the Koran (the earlier revelations before jihad) instead of taking the total and complete Koran including the last and final revelation of jihad (sura 9).
It must be noted that during times of Islamic weakness to conquer the House of War, a Hudaybiyah treaty 3 can be made allowing Islamic forces to gain strength. This type of treaty is called a hudna which is never to be considered a final status in Islam. Only the abode of dar al-Islam, (the abode of Islam) can be final. This is why Israel will never ever-ever, have peace with the Palestinians or any Muslim country that surrounds them. It's simply not within their culture, nationalism, and their Koran and hadith mindset won't allow it. No man-made two-state solution can ever override Allah's will that was given to Mohammad as a revelation of jihad. To the Muslim belief that competes with the Jewish Bible, Israel is the epitome of dar-al harb in Islam's eyes and of which challenges Islam at its very core root.
After Mohammad conquered Arabia of which he reportedly stated "I will expel the Jews and Christians from Arabia Peninsula, and will not leave any but Muslims"4 he then set his sights on the rest of the world. Takuk that was outside the peninsula was attacked and letters was sent to kings (even empire leaders) summoning them to Islam for the purpose of Allah's mercy (basically Allah wouldn't have mercy on them 'in the form of jihad' if they refused).
This shows Muhammad's intention of spreading his Islam by the sword throughout the world of which his successors (the caliphs) did indeed take the entire Middle East and then some by the sword of Allah. Even the Koran in its jihad revelation instructs the Muslim to complete this task:
"And fight with them until there is no more fitnah (unbelief) and all religions are for Allah" -sura 8:39
He it is who has sent his messenger with guidance and religion of truth that he may make it prevail over all religions" - sura 9:33
Keep in mind that the Koran quotes above are spoken from a religious warlord that was in the process of conquering all of Arabia.
The bottom line is this: Islam is a religion of jihad and oppression and not one of peace and prosperity. The countries under this religion proves this to be so. It would do a bleeding heart willfully ignorant towards Islam liberal some good to live under sharia law just to see that Islam is not something to have any type of compassion for. Taking at its full measure and revelations, Islam can never be compatible with America's Constitution and Bill of Rights, never! The West needs to wake up!


1. The "no compulsion in religion" revelation came as an early Medinan revelation (just after the hajj when Mohammad fled to Medinah in 622 CE). The Jihad Revelation (Mohammad's final) came in the ninth year of the Hijrah (630 CE). After eight years of being a warlord, his revelations matched his actions abrogating his "no compulsion in religion" revelation that was no longer needed due to his change in status.


3. Mohammad made a ten-year peace treaty with people of Mecca (the Quraysh tribe) in 628 CE on the plain of Hudaybiyah simply because his forces wasn't strong enough to take the city of Mecca. However, after two years of making this ten-year agreement, Mohammad found a way to break this treaty as soon as his army was strong enough to take the city.

4. Hadith: Muslim book 19, number 4366. Based upon this hadith Jews and Christians are not allowed to live in modern Saudi Arabia and cannot even visit Mecca. Everytime I read this I can't help but think of the Jews of Gaza being expelled in August, 2005 for the very same reason.

Israel's Eternal Covenant: Take it or Leave it

What clears or clouds the issue of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict more than anything else is whether or not one accepts God's eternal covenant with Israel. When one rejects this spiritual covenant many gray areas may appear because the issue then becomes only political in the mindset of that rejection, and where all spiritual concerns are addressed politically instead of spiritually. However, when the Israeli-Palestinian conflict issue is seen through the eternal covenant all issues concerning the conflict are no longer gray but becomes a black and white issue altogether allowing one to place any political concerns in a biblical (therefore righteous) prospective.
As a testimony to the world as to the righteousness of the covenant, the Palestinians hold and manifest the most evil than any other people on the planet. By that I mean their open evil should demonstrate to the world to go the opposite way of the Palestinians. The Palestinian rejection of the eternal covenant God has with Israel while being the closest to them (even inside Israel’s ancient homeland) causes them to be the most vicious of peoples. Their very foundation is steeped in actual Nazism via al-Hajj Amin Husseini via al-Fatah via Hamas. Also, more terrorism comes out from among the Palestinians than any other people on the planet. Their resume' as a people includes but certainly not limited to: Naming highways, streets, soccer stadiums, schools, hospitals, special events, ect. after dead murderous terrorists that they call shahids - martyrs. Their children are taught in the home, on television, in the classroom, in the textbooks, and during sermons at the mosque, to kill Jews and shahid themselves for the glory of their Allah-god.

I mean, where else could one go in the world but to An-Najach University in Nables to walk upon a US and Israeli flags upon entering and to see an exhibition of torn apart and mangled bodies that occurred at a Sbarro pizza restaurant in order to glorify the shahid -suicide bomber? 1 Of course, no other people since Hitler and the Nazis have been more responsible for Jewish murder of men, women, seniors, children, and infants, than the Palestinians!

Just these eye-opening realities alone should convince the world that absolutely nothing in support or in giving should be awarded the Palestinian people, but it doesn’t. Why? Because the world rejects the eternal covenant God has with the Jews and whereby it takes up the causes of the Palestinians regardless of how evil they are or become!

The Quartet (UN, EU, USA, Russia) is responsible for placing literally billions of dollars in the hands of these terrorist people knowing their murderous history, even offering a moment of silence at an UN meeting for the terrorist murderers (those who died for the cause of Palestine) while a map of all of Israel being called Palestine stood on display!2

Again, why this political insanity? It’s because of the world's rejection of the eternal covenant. And because the rejection is eternal, it is an eternal damnable offense the world is making. Ironically, if this covenant that God has with the Jews would have been accepted by the nations, not one single issue for the Palestinian cause would have been accepted or promoted. The Palestinian insanity that we see today would be viewed by the nations for what it is, insanity, and measures would have been made to shut it down forever. Instead, we see the Palestinian cause blossoming.

The Israeli-Palestinian conflict for now will continue until just before the annihilating of Israel by the Gentile nations. It will be at this time that God of Israel has promised to save Israel from that destruction and begins the judgment of nations (see Zechariah 14 / Joel 3:2)

The epic center of this conflict is the Temple Mount, the most holiest place being that it’s connected directly to the eternal covenant God has with Israel. Once the nations have given their stamp of approval of this holy place to be given to the most evil of peoples, and with it the destruction of Israel, God has promised to judge from that very location while given His stamp of approval as to His covenant people obtaining that holy place for His honor. (See Joel 3:2 / Zechariah 8 / Ezekiel 36 / Ezekiel 37)

Biblically, God’s eternal covenant with the Jewish people is made quite clear in Psalms 105:8-10 "He hath remembered his covenant for ever, the word which he commanded to a thousand generations. Which covenant he made with Abraham, and his oath unto Isaac; And confirmed the same unto Jacob for a law, and to Israel for an everlasting covenant"

Israel’s prophecy of return to the land of their forefathers (under the abiding covenant) by which could not have happened during the 5% Babylonian return, because there was no messiah present and righteousness afterwards, nor could it have been during the time of Jesus because there was no massive in-gathering of the exiles as it is to be according to prophecy. "And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king to them all: and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all: Neither shall they defile themselves any more with their idols, nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their transgressions: but I will save them out of all their dwelling places, wherein they have sinned, and will cleanse them: so shall they be my people, and I will be their God. And David my servant shall be king over them; and they all shall have one shepherd: they shall also walk in my judgments, and observe my statutes, and do them. And they shall dwell in the land that I have given unto Jacob my servant, wherein your fathers have dwelt; and they shall dwell therein, even they, and their children, and their children's children for ever: and my servant David shall be their prince for ever. Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall be an everlasting covenant with them: and I will place them, and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore. My tabernacle also shall be with them: yea, I will be their God, and they shall be my people. And the heathen shall know that I the LORD do sanctify Israel, when my sanctuary shall be in the midst of them for evermore." - Ezekiel 37:22-28
Israel’s prophesied righteousness (something that never gets acknowledged by those who advocate a ‘new’ covenant) is spelled out by the prophets in many places and is brought about in compliance with the eternal covenant God has with Israel.
"And the Redeemer shall come to Zion, and unto them that turn from transgression in Jacob, saith the LORD. As for me, this is my covenant with them, saith the LORD; My spirit that is upon thee, and my words which I have put in thy mouth, shall not depart out of thy mouth, nor out of the mouth of thy seed, nor out of the mouth of thy seed's seed, saith the LORD, from henceforth and for ever." - Isaiah 59:20-21

The bottom line is this: a rejection of God’s eternal covenant will automatically cause one to at least compromise righteous judgment concerning the Palestinians cause. Only those who acknowledge the eternal covenant will take on a true biblical prospective of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and therefore make a biblical based judgment.

The 2008 Election and Israel

Most people who know me consider me a right-wing conservative radical. I took it as a compliment when recently a frustrated liberal said to me, "Your so right-wing!" However, as in the last election, I will not be voting for the Republican ticket. I simply refuse to lend my support to anyone or any government that through Quartet influence, seeks to reward Muslim-Nazi ideology with a recognized state while they vehemently conspire to destroy Israel in appeasing their god Allah.

A lot of attempts have been made by conservative radio and television personalities such as Limbaugh, Hannity, Ingraham, and of course every person on Fox News to discredit Obama with his affiliation with PLO member Rashid Khalidi and the Hamas supporting Rev. Jeremiah Wright, as they should. However, I see no difference in Obama's affiliation with such men than President Bush allowing the Holocaust denying, martyrdom of terrorists proclaiming, terrorism unctioner, and Israel-hating Mahmoud Abbas into the White House for a "friendly" visit, calling this devil a "reformer" and a "peace-maker"!

It wasn't Obama that forced the Jews out of Gaza in August, 2005. It was the evil "twice Republican candidate" George W. Bush who pressured Ariel Sharon with loan guarantees and his Saudi conceived Roadmap plan that caused Gaza to be Judenrein (Jew-free) from where rockets now strike Israel much easier.

When I heard Sarah Palin express her seemingly vibrant support for Israel in the Vice-Presidential debate, and even taking a jab at Joe Biden as if he wasn't for the support for Israel and then turn right around and state that a two-state solution is indeed the answer to the Middle East conflict, it sealed my non-vote for the evil Republican ticket.

It's quite simple, though they may give lip-service towards the good of Israel, one cannot be for the well being of the State of Israel and at the same time, and in anyway, support and reward Israel's most vicious enemy who vows with the blood of their children the destruction of Israel! It simply doesn't work that way.

Christians should know this more than anyone. It is the same principle as "a little leaven leavens the whole lump" (I Cor. 5:6) and "He that is not with me is against me" (Matt. 12:30) and "No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other" (Matt. 6:24). The same can be said concerning Israel. One cannot love Israel and bless her enemies. It's a fundamental biblical absolute that whoever (Republican or Democrate) curses Israel by blessing his enemy is indeed cursed! (Num. 24:9).

As I see it, a vote for either party is a vote for the Quartet (USA included) to destroy Israel (Zech. 14:2) thereby trying to accomplishing what Hitler started. Obama can do no more to Israel that what George W. Bush (the Christian Right's choice) has already started and what McCain would continue to do via Bush's Saudi-conceived roadmap plan.

Many conservatives have told me that they really don't care for John McCain but feel they must vote for him because not voting for him benefits Obama. My answer to that is, "so what?" A vote for an evil because it is a "lesser evil" as McCain is viewed by many conservatives is a joke. There can be no righteousness in voting for any kind of evil regardless of how "lesser" it is! The lesser evil is still evil, period! The problem with voting for the lesser of two evils ends up being that the lesser of the two becomes more evil than the last lesser of two evils. A stand must be made without any waver or any compromise whatsoever. God operates under this principle with His word and expects us to do the same.

Beside this, if one is not willing to go all out for their candidate with financial backing, making phone calls, yard signs, and bumper stickers, all of which can effect other votes as well, it's only a half-hearted vote to begin with.

I took a lot of flack from several people including my wife during the last election when I refused to vote for the evangelical's choice, George W. Bush. Voting for every office on the ballot except for the office of president was something I never had done before. But every time Bush made a move towards a Palestinian state (which was often) I thanked the God of Israel that I hadn't laid my voting hand of support to such a Quartet-obeying devil. When I saw the Economist magazine show on the front cover a picture of Bush with the heading "Mr. Palestine" I showed it to my wife and said, "This is why I didn't vote for Bush!" I agree with the Economist, Bush is certainly Mr. Palestine himself.

It true that there are several other religious issues at sake in this coming election such as abortion. But the Inquisition Catholics of Spain as the Catholic Church does currently, would also be against abortion, but what was their spiritual condition that caused them to religiously murder Jews? Abortion by which there is no biblical death penalty (Ex. 21:22) is not the focal point of what causes a nation to be blessed or cursed. Israel however is, because that nation was ordained by God to be the nation-priest of the Gentile nations. To award the Muslim terrorist Palestinians a recognized state is to bless their god Allah and curse the God of Israel.

Speaking of unrighteous baby-murder, many Israeli infants and children have been murdered due to the Quartet pressure on Israel and their support of a Palestinian state. Hamas fires rockets into elementary schools in Sderot, Israel from once Jewish neighborhoods in Gaza and is only encouraged by what they see coming from the Quartet.

My patriotism and duty towards this country has never been weak. From my teenage years until the present, the 1970 hit "Fightin' Side of Me" by Merle Haggard continues to be my favorite country song as it was my father's. It has even been a ring tone for me. What I have also believe since my teenage years is the that ultimate best for this country biblically speaking is to bless and not curse Israel. Therefore, I resolve to withhold casting my vote for either of the Quartet-abiding / appeasing party as a protest to a system that has failed offer me a righteous biblical choice. The questions that I have to ask myself are these:

  • Am I willing to take part (by voting for) the future government and all it does in Quartet-compliance over the status of Jerusalem?
  • Will I give my voting hand of support knowing that the candidate I'm voting for, who like George W. Bush, will place Israel in great danger, even to the brink of annihilation via Palestinian-Nazi-terrorist state, regardless of their lying lip-service on how much they support Israel?
Believing that the End of Days are approaching, I as a reader of Ezekiel 37 and so many other scriptures concerning God's written will and prophecy concerning Israel, I'm not about to put my hand to, or play a role of support of such an evil among the nations. What more can I do knowing that God will judge me according to His word and notaccording to some preconceived American political notion?
The bottom line: I will vote for the one who is to make judgment (Isaiah 11:3-4) from God's capital in Jerusalem, and not the one who is to be judged in America's capital Washington DC.

My Breakdown and Reactions of Bush's Address to the Israeli Knesset

May 15, 2008
President Bush Addresses Members of the Knesset

The Knesset

It's amazing how the official White House web-site can acknowledge London as being part of England but can't recognize Jerusalem being a part of Israel (as copy and pasted above from their site) Maybe this is so for the same reason the US embassy is still in Tel-Aviv instead of Jerusalem even after the Jerusalem Embassy Relocation Act of 1995, it's all political!

THE PRESIDENT: President Peres and Mr. Prime Minister, Madam Speaker, thank very much for hosting this special session. President Beinish, Leader of the Opposition Netanyahu, Ministers, members of the Knesset, distinguished guests: Shalom. Laura and I are thrilled to be back in Israel. We have been deeply moved by the celebrations of the past two days. And this afternoon, I am honored to stand before one of the world's great democratic assemblies and convey the wishes of the American people with these words: Yom Ha'atzmaut Sameach. (Applause.) That is "Happy Independence Day" in Hebrew.

It is a rare privilege for the American President to speak to the Knesset. (Laughter.) Although the Prime Minister told me there is something even rarer -- to have just one person in this chamber speaking at a time. (Laughter.) My only regret is that one of Israel's greatest leaders is not here to share this moment. He is a warrior for the ages, a man of peace, a friend. The prayers of the American people are with Ariel Sharon. (Applause.)

We gather to mark a momentous occasion. Sixty years ago in Tel Aviv, David Ben-Gurion proclaimed Israel's independence, founded on the "natural right of the Jewish people to be masters of their own fate." What followed was more than the establishment of a new country. It was the redemption of an ancient promise given to Abraham and Moses and David -- a homeland for the chosen people Eretz Yisrael.
Yes, and we can read about where the borders of Eretz Yisrael (land of Israel) in the very same Bible that mentions Abraham, Moses, and David in Joshua chapter 15 (including verse 47) and in Ezekiel chapter 48 of which includes the entire "West Bank"believe it or not!

Eleven minutes later, on the orders of President Harry Truman, the United States was proud to be the first nation to recognize Israel's independence. And on this landmark anniversary, America is proud to be Israel's closest ally and best friend in the world.
If the appeasing Franklin D. Roosevelt who met with Saudi leader Abdul Aziz aboard the USS Quincy in the Great Bitter Lakes of the Suez Canal, vowed to "
do nothing to assist the Jews against the Arabs and would make no move hostile to the Arab people" had not died two months later, the United States would have been the "last" nation to recognize Israel's independence!

The alliance between our governments is unbreakable, yet the source of our friendship runs deeper than any treaty. It is grounded in the shared spirit of our people, the bonds of the Book, the ties of the soul. When William Bradford stepped off the Mayflower in 1620, he quoted the words of Jeremiah: "Come let us declare in Zion the word of God." The founders of my country saw a new promised land and bestowed upon their towns names like Bethlehem and New Canaan. And in time, many Americans became passionate advocates for a Jewish state.
They also named towns "Palestine" after Biblical and Jewish Palestine and not after a 20th. century Muslim name-grabbing of Palestine.

Centuries of suffering and sacrifice would pass before the dream was fulfilled. The Jewish people endured the agony of the pogroms, the tragedy of the Great War, and the horror of the Holocaust -- what Elie Wiesel called "the kingdom of the night." Soulless men took away lives and broke apart families. Yet they could not take away the spirit of the Jewish people, and they could not break the promise of God. (Applause.) When news of Israel's freedom finally arrived, Golda Meir, a fearless woman raised in Wisconsin, could summon only tears. She later said: "For two thousand years we have waited for our deliverance. Now that it is here it is so great and wonderful that it surpasses human words."
"Promise of God" did you say Mr. President? Just what are the promises of God towards Jerusalem (Joel 3:16-20, Micah 4:2, Zachariah. 8:3-8, Zechariah 12:2-11) and what has been done in the last seven years from your American administration that would be promoting and not going against those very promises of God? And Golda Meir would not only turn over, but actually spin in her grave at Israel accepting the Quartet's (suicide plan for Israel) "peace process"?

"The joy of independence was tempered by the outbreak of battle, a struggle that has continued for six decades. Yet in spite of the violence, in defiance of the threats, Israel has built a thriving democracy in the heart of the Holy Land. You have welcomed immigrants from the four corners of the Earth. You have forged a free and modern society.You have worked tirelessly for peace. You have fought valiantly for freedom."
Why does America seek a state for the very ones who initiated all those six decades of violence that you mentioned Mr.President? Are we to believe that the ones responsible for those six decade will turn around and "forge a free and modern society" and will work in your own words, "work tirelessly for peace" in the same way the Israelis have?

My country's admiration for Israel does not end there. When Americans look at Israel, we see a pioneer spirit that worked an agricultural miracle and now leads a high-tech revolution. We see world-class universities and a global leader in business and innovation and the arts. We see a resource more valuable than oil or gold: the talent and determination of a free people who refuse to let any obstacle stand in the way of their destiny.

More valuable than "oil" did you say Mr. President? Is the "peace process" that has Israel's destruction written all over it, more or less valuable to you than Saudi Arabia's oil?

I have been fortunate to see the character of Israel up close. I have touched the Western Wall, seen the sun reflected in the Sea of Galilee, I have prayed at Yad Vashem. And earlier today, I visited Masada, an inspiring monument to courage and sacrifice. At this historic site, Israeli soldiers swear an oath: "Masada shall never fall again." Citizens of Israel: Masada shall never fall again, and America will be at your side.
Will America be at the side of the Palestinians as well? What kind of oath do the Palestinians swear by? Is what they swear in nature of Jihad? Do they swear to kill Jews from the river (Jordan) to the sea (The Mediterranean)? What do the Palestinians think about the actual "swear" that Masada will never fall again? Do they swear that Masada will fall?

This anniversary is a time to reflect on the past. It's also an opportunity to look to the future. As we go forward, our alliance will be guided by clear principles -- shared convictions rooted in moral clarity and unswayed by popularity polls or the shifting opinions of international elites.

We believe in the matchless value of every man, woman, and child. So we insist that the people of Israel have the right to a decent, normal, and peaceful life, just like the citizens of every other nation. (Applause.)

We believe that democracy is the only way to ensure human rights. So we consider it a source of shame that the United Nations routinely passes more human rights resolutions against the freest democracy in the Middle East than any other nation in the world. (Applause.)
I can't believe it! President Bush (Mr. Palestine himself) actually said something worth commending. Not only was such a statement very factual, it was even outside the "Quartet mindset". Wow! I'm very,very, impressed!

We believe that religious liberty is fundamental to a civilized society. So we condemn anti-Semitism in all forms -- whether by those who openly question Israel's right to exist, or by others who quietly excuse them.
So will the state of Palestine that you are trying so hard to create, Mr. President be just as condemning of antisemitism as well, or are you just claiming to not be anti-Semitic while desperately trying to create a very anti-Semitic Jew-murdering state? What are the realities here?

We believe that free people should strive and sacrifice for peace. So we applaud the courageous choices Israeli's leaders have made. We also believe that nations have a right to defend themselves and that no nation should ever be forced to negotiate with killers pledged to its destruction. (Applause.)
Shouldn't America strive and sacrifice for peace with Al-Qadea as well in the same exact way? That way the Israeli government can applaud the courageous choices America's leaders would make in returning the favor? And what about the nation(s) especially the Jewish ones, being forced to negotiate with Holocaust deniers, praiser of suicide bombers, a terrorist supporter, and terrorism prompters? Let's say "Mahmoud Abbas"for example?

We believe that targeting innocent lives to achieve political objectives is always and everywhere wrong. So we stand together against terror and extremism, and we will never let down our guard or lose our resolve. (Applause.)

The fight against terror and extremism is the defining challenge of our time. It is more than a clash of arms. It is a clash of visions, a great ideological struggle. On the one side are those who defend the ideals of justice and dignity with the power of reason and truth. On the other side are those who pursue a narrow vision of cruelty and control by committing murder, inciting fear, and spreading lies.

This struggle is waged with the technology of the 21st century, but at its core it is an ancient battle between good and evil. The killers claim the mantle of Islam, but they are not religious men. No one who prays to the God of Abraham could strap a suicide vest to an innocent child, or blow up guiltless guests at a Passover Seder, or fly planes into office buildings filled with unsuspecting workers. In truth, the men who carry out these savage acts serve no higher goal than their own desire for power. They accept no God before themselves. And they reserve a special hatred for the most ardent defenders of liberty, including Americans and Israelis.
Let's go to the source of Islam to determine if they really are just using Islam's mantle or if they are the true followers of the Mohammedan religion:

  • And fight with them until there is no more "fitnah" (remember the banned Danish documentary by the same name) and all religions are for Allah - sura 8:39
  • O prophet, urge the believers (Muslims) to fight. If there be of you twenty steadfast, they shall overcome two hundred; and if there be of you a hundred, they shall overcome a thousand of those who disbelieve. - sura 8:65
  • ...Slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captive and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush- sura 9:5
  • Fight those who believe not in Allah, nor in the Last Day -sura 9:29
  • O prophet, make war against the disbelievers and the hypocrites and be firm against them. And their abode is hell, and evil is the destination. - sura 9:73.
  • And concerning "martyr operations" (suicide bombings) Surely Allah has bought from the believers their persons and their property - theirs in return is the Garden (of paradise). They fight in Allah's way, so they slay and are slain. - sura 9:111

Yes, President Bush, they are very religious, and I dare say a lot more religious than you. They understand what their holy book tells them to do in advancing Dar-al Islam (abode of the submission to Allah) by fighting Dar-al Harb (the abode of war that is against Islam). In doing so are they not following Allah's final phase (the prior phases being prophethood, messengership, defensive wars) that was expressed in their prophet Mohammad's life as jihad whereby the 8th. and 9th. chapters of the Koran were written? The jihadist believe that this undeniable final phase consisting of jihad was given for the freedom of all mankind so he wouldn't have to be servitude to man's "world order" of which your infidel father and infidel self helps rule. To them, jihad is a declaration of freedom that frees a man where he can be free to choose Islam and summit to Allah (Islam) instead of being kept from Allah's will by Dar-al harb (the abode of war a.k.a. the West). Maybe Mr. President, you should take the time to study a little Islam, read some Koran and maybe a hadith or two before making such asinine statements about something you just think you know by what some hired Muslim, White House guide, who more than likely is gifted in the fine Islamic art of al-takiah (lying for the sake of Islam) tells you?

And that is why the founding charter of Hamas calls for the "elimination" of Israel. And that is why the followers of Hezbollah chant "Death to Israel, Death to America!" That is why Osama bin Laden teaches that "the killing of Jews and Americans is one of the biggest duties." And that is why the President of Iran dreams of returning the Middle East to the Middle Ages and calls for Israel to be wiped off the map.

  • That is why Muslims are not to make friends with Jews (sura 5:51).
  • That is why the Koran says that the Jews are the cause of all wars and strive to make mischief in the land (sura 5:64).
  • That is why Jews are the most violent people against the Muslim believers (sura 5:82).
  • That is why Allah has turned the Jews into pigs and apes (sura 5:60 / 7:166).
  • That is why Jews should be murdered or crucified, or have their hands and feet cut off on opposite sides (sura 5:32-33).
There are in fact "Koranic" reasons as to why Osama bin Laden teaches that "the killing of Jews and Americans is one of the biggest duties". Besides what his holy Koran states concerning "the Jews" of which he gets all of his inspiration, bin Laden also knows how his holy prophet (an excellent example of human behavior (sura 33:21) dealt with the Jews of the Banu Qurayza tribe which was by cutting their heads off and taking their women and small children as slaves. Bin Laden is also very aware of the authoritative and reliable hadith that states, "

You will fight against the Jews and you will kill them until even a stone would say: Come here, Muslim, there is a Jew (hiding himself behind me) ; kill him. - Muslim, Book 041, Number 6981 *

Yes Mr. President, maybe this is why bin Laden does think that "killing Jews is one of the biggest duties"! And maybe that's why the founding charter of Hamas calls for the elimination of Israel. And maybe that's why Hezbollah chants "Death to Israel, Death to America"? READ THE KORAN AND ITS HADITH MR. PRESIDENT!

There are good and decent people who cannot fathom the darkness in these men and try to explain away their words. It's natural, but it is deadly wrong. As witnesses to evil in the past, we carry a solemn responsibility to take these words seriously. Jews and Americans have seen the consequences of disregarding the words of leaders who espouse hatred. And that is a mistake the world must not repeat in the 21st century.

Did you Mr. President, take seriously the words of Al-Fatah and Hamas within their covenants before pursuing a Palestinian state, or did "you" disregard them after seeing the consequences in the past of doing just that very thing?

Some seem to believe that we should negotiate with the terrorists and radicals, as if some ingenious argument will persuade them they have been wrong all along. We have heard this foolish delusion before. As Nazi tanks crossed into Poland in 1939, an American senator declared: "Lord, if I could only have talked to Hitler, all this might have been avoided." We have an obligation to call this what it is -- the false comfort of appeasement, which has been repeatedly discredited by history.
Several decades of Palestine history include but not limited to:
  • The 1929 Hebron massacre and other Jewish massacres.
  • Their support for the Nazis and the Axis of Evil under their spiritual leader and guide - the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem haj Amin al-Husseini.
  • Their support for the communist Russia during the Cold War via their revered leader Yassir Arafat who today is buried in a most elaborate tomb reflecting Palestinian admiration for all of Arafat's evil deeds.
  • Their support for Saddam Hussein during the Gulf War as they cheered his SCUD missiles hitting Tel-Aviv and other places within Israel proper.
  • Presently, their support for Osama bin Laden and Al-Qadea! Not only did they joyfully cheer and dance in the street at the news of 9/11, but they also elected Hamas (an extension of the Muslim Brotherhood that Al-Qadea itself came from) in an overwhelming victory.
Given these facts, how is it not a "foolish delusion" on your part Mr. President, that the Palestinian people have now been persuaded by your administration's ingenious arguments that they have been wrong all along these past several decades, in these and many more accounts of terrorism? Like the Palestinians of Gaza, the Nazis were given land-for-peace which was the Sudetenland of Czechoslovakia. But like the Nazis, nothing less than the whole area of which they had originally sought after (in the case of the Palestinians, the whole of Palestine / Israel) will only suffice them! Mr. President, you have an obligation to call the land-for-peace "peace process" what it is -- the false comfort of appeasement, which has been repeatedly discredited by history! Listen to your own statements Mr. President, and apply them where they should be applied!

Some people suggest if the United States would just break ties with Israel, all our problems in the Middle East would go away. This is a tired argument that buys into the propaganda of the enemies of peace, and America utterly rejects it. Israel's population may be just over 7 million. But when you confront terror and evil, you are 307 million strong, because the United States of America stands with you.
Your peace process buys into the propaganda of the enemies of peace as well, namely the Hudaibiya treaty where they will be ever so close to their pre-June 1967 goals. How many million strong were the Israelis Mr. President, when you suspended loan guarantees in order to pressured Israel to accept the Quartet's Palestinian state concept that includes a land-for-peace deal that is sponsored by the Saudis themselves. These Saudis, whose country is founded on Islamic Wahhabism knows very well the "Hudaibiya Peace-Process Treaty" concept that originated in their Wahhabist country, not to mention obtaining the billions of dollars worth of state of the art weaponry that you Mr. President, sold them!

America stands with you in breaking up terrorist networks and denying the extremists sanctuary. America stands with you in firmly opposing Iran's nuclear weapons ambitions. Permitting the world's leading sponsor of terror to possess the world's deadliest weapons would be an unforgivable betrayal for future generations. For the sake of peace, the world must not allow Iran to have a nuclear weapon.
But America now stands with the Palestinians in the "Hudaibiya Peace-Process Plan". America also stood by Hamas in the sense of implementing one of their goals through Israeli pressure - a Jew-free Gaza. America is also standing by the Fatah and Hamas together in bringing about another terrorist goal in making the entire West Bank also Jew-free! And its a given fact that both of these groups (according to their covenants) support Iran's nuclear weapons ambitions. I haven't heard
"American Poster-boy for Peace in the Middle East" Mahmoud Abbas condemn Mahmoud Ahmadinejad for his World without Zionist /blow Israel off the map, speech . I wonder why? Does Mahmoud Abbas also believe like you Mr. President, that permitting the world's leading sponsor of terror to possess the world's deadliest weapons would be an unforgivable betrayal for future generations, and that for the sake of peace, the world must not allow Iran to have a nuclear weapon?

Ultimately, to prevail in this struggle, we must offer an alternative to the ideology of the extremists by extending our vision of justice and tolerance and freedom and hope. These values are the self-evident right of all people, of all religions, in all the world because they are a gift from the Almighty God. Securing these rights is also the surest way to secure peace. Leaders who are accountable to their people will not pursue endless confrontation and bloodshed. Young people with a place in their society and a voice in their future are less likely to search for meaning in radicalism. Societies where citizens can express their conscience and worship their God will not export violence, they will be partners in peace.

How can one offer a better alternative to true Islam? You see there, you infidel-kafir you, you are just trying to destroy Islam and such statements prove it! True Islam has a duty to wage war against the world ruled by man where justice, tolerance, freedom, and hope are only false visions. This is why there are things such as racism, inequality, and corruption in a capitalistic world not ruled by Allah. Islam seeks only to establish a world under the Islamic law where man can be free from the servitude of other man and be free to be servitude to Allah (Islam) alone where in Allah's domain one can have those things that you mentioned, true justice, tolerance, freedom, and hope. You see, President (Kafir) Bush, its through Dar al-Islam that securing these rights is also the surest way to secure peace. It is only through a world under Islam that there can be societies where citizens can express their conscience and worship their Allah and will not export violence, where they will be partners in peace. Boy, I could sure make a great Jew-killing Muslim wouldn't I? READ SOME HADITHS AND STUDY THE CONCEPT OF JIHAD MR. PRESIDENT, THEN GET A CLUE!

The fundamental insight, that freedom yields peace, is the great lesson of the 20th century. Now our task is to apply it to the 21st. Nowhere is this work more urgent than here in the Middle East. We must stand with the reformers working to break the old patterns of tyranny and despair. We must give voice to millions of ordinary people who dream of a better life in a free society. We must confront the moral relativism that views all forms of government as equally acceptable and thereby consigns whole societies to slavery. Above all, we must have faith in our values and ourselves and confidently pursue the expansion of liberty as the path to a peaceful future.

Are you calling the Holocaust denying, terrorist supporting, terrorism-prompting, terrorist praising, Israel-death-wishing
Mahmoud Abbas a reformer? Are you Mr. President? Let's just have faith in our peace-process that gives "expansion of liberty" - to the terrorists as the peace process did for them in Gaza and the soon to follow West Bank, right Mr. President?

That future will be a dramatic departure from the Middle East of today. So as we mark 60 years from Israel's founding, let us try to envision the region 60 years from now. This vision is not going to arrive easily or overnight; it will encounter violent resistance. But if we and future Presidents and future Knessets maintain our resolve and have faith in our ideals, here is the Middle East that we can see:

Israel will be celebrating the 120th anniversary as one of the world's great democracies, a secure and flourishing homeland for the Jewish people. The Palestinian people will have the homeland they have long dreamed of and deserved -- a democratic state that is governed by law, and respects human rights, and rejects terror. From Cairo to Riyadh to Baghdad and Beirut, people will live in free and independent societies, where a desire for peace is reinforced by ties of diplomacy and tourism and trade. Iran and Syria will be peaceful nations, with today's oppression a distant memory and where people are free to speak their minds and develop their God-given talents. Al Qaeda and Hezbollah and Hamas will be defeated, as Muslims across the region recognize the emptiness of the terrorists' vision and the injustice of their cause.
It must first be understood that before Al-Qaeda , Hezbollah, and Hamas can be defeated, "true Islam" by which these groups aspire, must be defeated. There will always be Islamic movements that views the Koran and hadiths in their literal form that will inspire them to continue global jihad. Until America is willing to after Islam itself rather than trying to change to structure of Islam to fit the Kafir-West's view as to what Islam should be, there will be no need to worry about defeating Islamic terrorist groups because it will never happen! Only by going after Islam itself can one spray the base (as in Al-Qaeda) of the fire of global jiihad. Only the Messianic Age will bring about the end of Islam, and not by a nation whose democracy denies God's laws while giveing American "freedom" to sin. It is interesting that before the Israelis sent a rocket right up his Islamic terroristic loins on that wonderful and glorious day of March 22, 2004, Sheikh Ahmed Yassin (damnation be upon him) predicted through Islamic inspiration that Israel would be destroyed by Islamic power by the year 2027 I have to wonder who has more dedication and inspiration for their holy quest, you Mr. President or men like Yassin?

Overall, the Middle East will be characterized by a new period of tolerance and integration. And this doesn't mean that Israel and its neighbors will be best of friends. But when leaders across the region answer to their people, they will focus their energies on schools and jobs, not on rocket attacks and suicide bombings. With this change, Israel will open a new hopeful chapter in which its people can live a normal life, and the dream of Herzl and the founders of 1948 can be fully and finally realized.

This is a bold vision, and some will say it can never be achieved. But think about what we have witnessed in our own time. When Europe was destroying itself through total war and genocide, it was difficult to envision a continent that six decades later would be free and at peace. When Japanese pilots were flying suicide missions into American battleships, it seemed impossible that six decades later Japan would be a democracy, a lynchpin of security in Asia, and one of America's closest friends. And when waves of refugees arrived here in the desert with nothing, surrounded by hostile armies, it was almost unimaginable that Israel would grow into one of the freest and most successful nations on the earth.
The Bible's end-time focus is not upon nations fighting each other, that has been going on since there was nations. The Bible's end-time focus is on all the nations coming against Israel and Jerusalem (Zachariah 14:2) by which the United States has its part via the Quartet (USA, Russia, United Nations, European Union).

Yet each one of these transformations took place. And a future of transformation is possible in the Middle East, so long as a new generation of leaders has the courage to defeat the enemies of freedom, to make the hard choices necessary for peace, and stand firm on the solid rock of universal values.

Sixty years ago, on the eve of Israel's independence, the last British soldiers departing Jerusalem stopped at a building in the Jewish quarter of the Old City. An officer knocked on the door and met a senior rabbi. The officer presented him with a short iron bar -- the key to the Zion Gate -- and said it was the first time in 18 centuries that a key to the gates of Jerusalem had belonged to a Jew. His hands trembling, the rabbi offered a prayer of thanksgiving to God, "Who had granted us life and permitted us to reach this day." Then he turned to the officer, and uttered the words Jews had awaited for so long: "I accept this key in the name of my people."
Another testimony (coming from a leading Gentile) that the nation of Israel is indeed a modern miracle among the nations!

Over the past six decades, the Jewish people have established a state that would make that humble rabbi proud. You have raised a modern society in the Promised Land, a light unto the nations that preserves the legacy of Abraham and Isaac and Jacob. And you have built a mighty democracy that will endure forever and can always count on the United States of America to be at your side. God bless. (Applause.)
Such great words coming from a pro-Palestinian state Gentile leader!
