The road to hell…

Reader comment on item: Annapolis Blues

The road to hell is paved with…you presume to know what I was going to say but you would be wrong! I was about to say the road to hell is paved with good RELIGIOUS intentions! What is the sudden rush, this heightened sense of urgency by the Bush presidency to shove another Arab—Israeli peace conference on to the world's stage? The answer is a strange mix of messianic zeal combined with certain people's religious legatorial motivations to bring about the return of Christ! I'm looking at this issue from a Jewish perspective; President Bush and Condoleezza Rice are under the gun knowing their abilities to set-up the conditions for Jesus' return are coming to an end. All that these "end timers" are doing is attempting to bring about a seven-year false peace treaty.

Who's kidding who now Condi, if you're such a devout Christian why are you trying your darnedest to official make Jerusalem (eastern part anyway) and Judea & Samaria (The West Bank) a Muslim country? The truth is I'm about to expose your little game in the same vein as Christopher Hitchens exposed Mother Teresa as a fanatical fraud. Condi, reporters have continually written on your personal "bible study/personal prayer" time and that nobody is allowed to bother you during these reflective moments.

Oh…I see, you read your New Testament regularly then, so—uh where does Jesus ever mention about preparing the kingdom of Allah? Where does your bible say that Jesus wanted to tear down the temple in order to go to Mecca to locate the ‘Black Stone', kiss it and throw out all the pagan idols from the Kaaba? Where does Jesus ever mention in the New Testament that the Jews need to bow down and serve Allah? The answers to these questions is that the bible doesn't say these things; Pauline Christianity removes the law of Moses, forgoes circumcision, argues faith over good works and states that Jesus died as a sacrificial lamb to take away (or take on) the sins of the world.

So Condi, if you're such a devout Christian, what exactly are your motivations for initiating another land for peace Israeli—Arab deal? Well because it's not that, your ulterior motivates are to make a fast ‘final settlement', one that is written in stone. The reason being is you're trying to lay the groundwork for Armageddon! If you were truly out for altruistic means in which you wanted to bring about the peaceful coexistence between Arabs and Jews, you certainly wouldn't be rushing for a final settlement! There's not even any willingness on the Arab side to stop educating their kids that Israel is just a European Zionist entity and that there were never any ancient Israelites (i.e. that there never was a temple).

There's absolutely no common ground between the two parties and yet you want to make a final settlement? Condi, your messages to the media are twofaced just like the Muslims who say one thing in English to the world and the complete opposite to their own people in Arabic. There's just no way you honestly feel Palestinians are like the black Americans and that there's a similarity of struggles between the two groups of people. Because if you did, you would have felt that the only way for the American blacks to have freedom, peace and economic prosperity with white Americans would be to form their own separate country! The truth of the matter is that after the war of 1967, the Palestinians prospered in Gaza and the West Bank like they never had under Egyptian and Jordanian rule (see the following article: http://www.frontpagemag.com/Articles/Read.aspx?GUID=6B82343B-8200-4579-B388-D1AA22442CC3).

In fact, Muslim women stand a better chance having a better life under Israeli rule than Muslim rule! Muslims living in Israel proper who kill females out of the principle of ‘honour killing' are arrested and charged with murder. Whereas the murderers of women in Gaza under the code of ‘honour killing' are praised for doing their Islamic duty! It's a sad joke that although the young hip westernized queen of Jordan goes on media junkets promoting her country and women rights, her husband is paralysed with fear by even attempting to lift a finger on the issue of honour killing! The sad truth is that women who fear for their life from being killed by their family member(s) for just expressing their will (to date who they want, wear what they want, marry who they want, etc.) and can't afford to flee the country have only one option—prison! Yep, you heard me right, there are special women prison wards that are filled to capacity with women who voluntarily live in jail rather than venture out in public for fear of their lives! These women are given food and supplies by mainly women rights workers (how ironic) who visit these self-interned frightened souls; the male guards don't even give a damn!

So Condi, you can't be serious about saying that female Palestinian emancipation will come with yet another Muslim state being born? And in terms of economic growth…uh, what growth? All that Saudi oil money rather than helping their fellow Muslims, just goes to buy weapons and convince the world that Israel is a Zionist apartheid nazi like state! Oh yes…and don't forget almost every month in some newspaper in the western world is an article about Israel's cruel checkpoints! And yet the same journalists don't dig around and ask why are there so many Palestinians wanting to cross back and forth from the territories to Israel?

Because of jobs, shopping for food, getting medical attention and alike. These journalists decry these checkpoints but this level of security is nothing in comparison to Israel and Palestine living side by side. Now instead of checkpoints, there will be customs officers and border guards, if a Palestinian doesn't have a passport—he/she can forget crossing over into Israel! And this begs the question, exactly why: if Palestinians won't be able to easily go back and forth between the two countries, if the economic hardships are going to be greater on the average Palestinian, if Palestinian women will literally have to jail themselves up rather than be able to freely express their will, if all this and more is going to be so bad, Condi why are you pushing for final status talks now?

Because you really don't care about the Palestinians! You're absolutely no different than Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, he too tells the world one thing but is working for world chaos in the hope that his saviour, the hidden 12th Imam will crawl out of the Jamkaran well near the city of Qom and unite the world under his Islamic caliphate. Condi, you and President Bush are so transparent, you're following the Christian playbook step by step, just as with Ahmadinejad, you ‘end time' Christians are trying to hasten ill will towards Israel in a hope that world events will bring about Christ second coming! This is an absolutely sick and twisted game you're playing with peoples' lives. I am utterly outraged and I'm horrified thinking you're trying to push Israel's existence to the brink so that you can be raptured up and meet your lord in the sky!

But that's the reason why the Bush presidency is trying to ram some sort of half-assed final settlement talks between the Palestinians and the Israelis. It has nothing to do with Palestinian emancipation, Palestinian women's rights, economics or any other of the numerous platforms that have been debated ad nauseam by the academic left; it's all about trying to bring the nation of Israel closer to peril so that Jesus will come back again and save the world! Condi and company will fortunately be out of their jobs soon enough but will the world have enough time to prevent Christian ‘end timers' from setting their agenda and bringing the world one step closer self-destruction?

If you want peace, you work for peace but this sort of planning takes years to come to full fruition and you allow peace to occur in bite size portions. What you don't do is put a gun to a person's head and tell him to eat the appetizer, main course, desert and pay his bill all in 20 minutes! Any person who does so is deranged, thus Condi, you and your boss are crazed Christian ‘end time' lunatics! You're not presenting a platform for peace; you're setting up Israel for collapse internally by Jewish descent and externally by its enemies who smell weakness. The road to Annapolis isn't the road to peace but rather it's the road to hell paved with very well placed religious intentions!
