Israel is History's Best Evidence of a Land and a People That Will Not Go Away, No Matter the Intentions Otherwise

Reader comment on item: Israel's Predicament at 60: World's worst neighbourhood
in response to reader comment: "Hamas leader Mahmoud Zahar's statement of intent"

Here, and in implications elsewhere in this post, are the continuations of the ideological mindset that Israel has no right to the land they possess, or even the right to exist as a nation. There is no mistaking that the intentions of the more provocative voices of Islam and its proponents want nothing less than the diminishment and eventual elimination of Israel from the Middle East. The basis for these provocations come from the extractions of thought emanating from the writings made under the direction of the Islamic Prophet.

As long as the mindset exists that Israel is to be targeted in the international community according to the wrong perceptions of its place and value, there will be controversy. To further continue in the idea that Israel or her people are bargaining chips to peace in the world (mainly through the desires of her special enemies to see her removed altogether) is nothing more than following a delusion that Israel is not the most important nation in the world scheme of things and that the world can somehow defeat the power that gives Israel its place in history. And reading from the wrong sources to make such a determination does not help the situation at all.

There are many places in the one controlling document of Israel's destiny, the Hebrew Holy Scriptures, where Israel's pre-imminence is extolled, yet one more is recalled here: Daniel 8:23) And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up. 24) And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practice, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people. 25) And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify [himself] in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.

A quick look around Israel, to the north and south, gives an immediate picture of the predicament Israel is in, coupled with the unwelcome agents of a faux peace attempting to futilely broker a deal with the agents of Israel's antagonists; to what end remains to be seen. Do not be misled; Israel does still have a rough time ahead. But contrary to opinions formed from not understanding her place in the eternal schemes of things, Israel is to be propelled into the future with all the might and power her LORD brings to bear against all the nations and people that try to do her mischief. To Israel the promise is given, and to Israel it shall be kept by her true LORD.
