Good Observation - Jewish Destiny Already Determined

Reader comment on item: How to Turn Gaza Over to Egypt
in response to reader comment: Jews not to decide the fate of Gaza

Submitted by M. Tovey (United States), Feb 12, 2008 at 12:15

It is supposed here that the observation that the Jews have no right to determine the destiny of their own lands was made without reference to the rights already bestowed by the Jewish Almighty Sovereign. But to make that kind of assertiion is like the United States determining that the Kashmir belongs to one side or the other of the border of Pakistan or India. Who really gets the right to make that detemination without causing strife?

Secondly, Jewish people do get to live in the United States, generally freely as citizens or foreign nationals with a certain amount of security. But the United States is not their historical land as the land of Israel is-no matter how the faulty perception is that Israel does not belong. As to Israeli national security, they have no such luxury in their own land, for that citizenship is under contention by the world and the agents of Islamic domination that would deprive them of even the most minute portion of the MIddle East.

Gaza is but one of the focal points of contention in the Middle East, and if it does not get under control of someone who has the power to give it a peaceful solution (clue - it is not going to be the PA, Egypt or Hamas), it will continue like an out of control nuclear reactor and cause the meltdown of the entire region. And when that happens, only Israel will come out of it intact. That is the determination of her Eternal Sovereign.
