The Blinding Truth-Israel Will Always Be There

Reader comment on item: Accept Israel as the Jewish State?

Submitted by M. Tovey (United States), Nov 30, 2007 at 11:39

From the moment the Almighty God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob designated Abram to be Abraham, the eternal security of the Hebrew people has been promised, even if only a remnant exists to receive the promise. Validation of this is hard to miss in the re-establishment of the Jewish Nation, Israel.

That the 'Palestinian' mentality, indeed the entire anti-Semitic mindset of the Arabic/Muslim community and the rest of all like-minded people of the world, seems intent to 'eliminate' (really, is that not just another way to say destroy?) the Jewish Nation, such has been manifest for longer than the sixty years of the reincarnated country. It is a symptom of hatred that is centuries old, and a disease of a troubled mind. It is compounded by the blindness of the animosity held for all things Jewish. It comes down to what one wants to believe.

The 'Palestinians' believe they can win. The Muslim community thinks they can win. The whole world thinks that if Middle East peace can be bartered at the cost of the loss of Israel's identity and birthright land; they'll urge for that, but they cannot win.

(It is interesting that it seems every other non-Muslim person except that of Jewish heritage can be accepted in dhimmi status. Israel on the other hand must lose its Jewishness and become 'Palestine' in order to be acceptable to the Muslim mindset.)

PM Olmert, as noted here and elsewhere, made clear the definition under which negotiations must go forward, the recognition of Israel as a viable state. As noted in this article, that is something that has been covertly and overtly part of the Muslim position that is unacceptable. Unless that position is overturned and peace can be negotiated with all parties accepting Israel's sovereignty and existence, there is not going to be peace: not for Israel, not for the Muslims, not for the entire world.

One may be able to turn a blind eye to all sorts of inequities in this world, but acting out hatreds that cause blindness to the historical facts of the existence of Israel are not going to lead anywhere except to the place of outer darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. If all would really open their eyes and understand where that kind of hatred comes from, would there still be such a rush to destruction? Well, looking around the world as it propels itself to its inevitable conclusion, maybe so.

Thank the Almighty Sovereign of Israel that He does not see it that way; hence the promise to Israel. They are not going away: not now, not ever.
