More Hatred of Mordecai than Love of Haman

terrorists

In December 2010 a young Tunisian, Mohamed Bouazizi, set himself on fire and ignited Islamic-fueled fire storms that have scorched the Middle East. As of January 1st 2014, Al Qaeda Iraq, under the command of Abu Bakre al-Baghdadi, having defeated the 1st and 7th divisions of the American trained Iraqi Army, is in now in control of central Iraq, and al-Baghdadi is preparing to announce an Islamic Caliphate. This, of course, provides Al Qaeda Syria, under the leadership of Abu Muhamad al-Julan the strategic depth it needs to survive, and a territorial continuity from Iraq all the way to Israel’s borders. So why is the world so obsessed with the Israeli-Palestinian problem?

Given a radical Islamic, Al Qaeda lead, entrenched presence from Morocco to Pakistan, even those who previously honestly believed that the resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict would bring peace to the world, can no longer hold this position.

Of all the atrocities, genocide, and mass massacres that are going on now, and have been going on for decades on our enlightened planet, why is the world so preoccupied with Israeli settlements? Why in the face of so much Islamic-fueled hate and violence, does the world remain so intent on resolving, what is in the grand scope of world conflicts, a relatively minor one, and bent on doing so at the cost of Israel?

In a world filled with so many victims, and with so many tragic causes to champion, the Palestinian plight surely does not merit a top billing. And yet, despite the extreme and unprecedented efforts by Israel to adhere to a humane code of both military and civilian conduct in it’s dealings with the Palestinians, Israel is considered the villain, and the Palestinians have consistently been the preferred recipients of both world sympathy and attention.

So, if by any measurable scale of logic, Palestinian suffering does not measure up to a top billing, the problem may boil down to a Jewish Problem instead. Could it simply be a case of hatred of Mordechai, rather than one of love of Haman that keeps the pressure on Israel by the US and European Union, to accept an agreement which jeopardizes it’s very survival?

Despite the fact that Hezbollah, Hamas, and Al Qaeda (all committed to Israel’s destruction) are now physically surrounding Israel, absurdly, the sticking points of a ‘would be’ agreement between Israel and the Palestinians appear to be centered on security arrangements. The Palestinians (soon to become Al Qaeda Palestine) object to what Israelis consider the minimum security requirements for Israel’s survival in the event of future break down of the peace accord with a people that has been heavily invested in the industry of hating Jews and educating generations of Palestinian children to the worship of terror.

Israeli security requirements are based on three basic needs; an early warning system (which includes warning of an Iranian missile attack); deterrence (against outside Islamic expeditionary forces entering the new state and joining in with the Palestinians); the ability to achieve a quickly and decisive victory in the event of a future war. Surprisingly (or not), the US is mounting extraordinary pressure on Israel (soon to be reinforced by visits to Israel by British Prime Minister David Cameron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel) to give in on security needs for the sake of an understanding of a framework of peace with a party that continues to refuse acknowledgment of the Jewish State’s right to exist.

With Iran about to go nuke on the one hand, and Al Qaida gaining ground in the entire region, Israel is caught in a dilemma; rejecting the American proposed agreement with the Palestinians and being subjected to President Barack Obama’s vengeful wrath if and when it’s time to strike Iran, or succumbing to America’s pressure and leaving Israel vulnerable to a future Palestinastan.

    Atleast they are enemies of each other.

    Israel must stand her ground! The Christian and conservative people of the US will support her.

  4. In the long run, that doesn’t help much since they are united in their hatred of Israel.

  5. I am against efforts to make peace that involve Israel in such a way that demands that they give up ANY of their land. I know it sounds weary to many people that I state that God brought Israel back into this land, BUT that is EXACTLY what God has done! THERE HAS NEVER BEEN A NATION OF PALESTINE, despite what the Dutch claim. When the Arab nations around Israel attacked; God continued to extend Israel’s borders. Israel even regained Jerusalem and the Temple mount! These events/wars have been an obvious fulfillment of God’s promise to bring Israel back into his land in the end times. He even specified that the nation would be born in ONE day. That day was May 14, 1948. God’s word teaches us that in the end times when Israel is brought back, that they would never be fully removed again. To make a so called peace deal which involves giving away the land that God promised Israel is a huge sin. I believe that the rapture/departure of the Christian church is to take place very soon and that an evil peace deal will be made for 7/360 day years, between Israel, the Arabs and a person who will head the one world government. That man will be the anti-Christ. I wrote a book in 2012 that discusses some of the prophecies written about in the Bible. It’s a short read of 6 or 7 pages and it’s totally free. I hope you will have a look: http://www.booksie.com/religion_and_spirituality/book/richard_b_barnes/after-the-rapture-whats-next

  6. Yeah, I'd be more worried about a new caliphate forming that stretches across Africa, the middle-east, and Asia. I'd also be worried about all the saboteurs that now live all over Europe that will be called into service once the new caliphate makes its move on Israel and any other region marked for conquest….which is every square inch on the planet. They think turning their back on Israel will keep them safe. The world will burn if they do so.
