The polemic observed here is just exactly why there can be no peace in Israel until the truth is revealed about why the enemies of Israel feel just exactly the same as this previous writer. In his/her justification for defending Islam in its stated intention to influence the world for its style of religion, and the use of that to force the issue of ejecting and eliminating Israel for the Middle East, we see here one of the more developed lines of attempted substantiation, labeling Christianity as extremist radical fundamentalism, the same way many call certain observance of Islam extremist radical fundamentalism. For this point of view, Israel must be the target, and to justify the elements of Islamic extremist radical fundamentalism in their cause to eliminate Israel, the rhetoric to be displayed must necessarily be sufficient to provide the cover sentiments of the destruction of Israel, whether piece by poiece, or in their wildest imagination, in one fell swoop (vis a vis Iran and the vision of her Islamic Revolutionary Leader to 'wipe Israel off the map').

To think that there ever will be a true 'Palestinian' state is to fail to understand the process that brought that part of the Middle East into the current configuration, and to ignore the facts on the ground. All one need do to embrace the circumstances ready to explode is to peruse the sentiments of the previous writer, magnify it with the like-minded rhetoric of the surrounding powers that be and realize that it is not really so important to them to 'create' a 'Palestinian' state than it is so important to eliminate Israel. So they take the Biblical name of the mountain of Almighty God and try to make it an epithet; that the term 'Zionist' is for them made to mean something other than its true meaning, yet in doing so, do not realize it is a form of bringing about the intended outcome of Israel in the Middle East according to the Holy Bible. In other words, it is the fulfillment of Biblical prophecy, and they are, in ignorance, helping to bring it about.

Now, there is no arguing the premises, positions of the points of view or the seething intensity of the feelings portrayed by the previous writer, for doing so would have the appearance that there is validation to such things, and this writer has no such intention to legitimize such a perspective. Rather, in acknowledgement that there are elements on both side of the issue of Israeli sovereignty, a restatement by this writer of what is the obvious, that Israel does exist as a State, irrespective of the sentiments against her; and that for more than 60 years, Israel has demonstrated her resilience in the face of her enemies in consonance with the good intentions of her allies, and in fulfillment of her destiny according to the Holy Bible (the basis and source of truth regarding Israel). Even in this, the previous writer has missed the portent of the situation room scenario, that not all of the EU has adopted some form of affinity for Israel, and the latest posturing of the American Administration is definitely leaving room for consideration of the Arabic position in obtaining peace at Israel's cost. The inference of war by the previous writer is not merely a potential outcome from a political misstep, but an absolute result.

And finally, the supposition that Israel needs an enemy to perpetuate an image of a nation always under threat comes from an insensitivity of the fanaticism this previous writer tries to apply to Israel; when in fact, it makes the opposing argument for this writer easier, that Israel, for the most part, is usually having to shoot back. Only when the circumstances provide the intelligence that dictate something pre-emptory to defend against the stated intentions of her enemies do we see Israel taking an initiative, necessary for her very existence. One does not need to be a 'Zionist Christian extremist fundamentalist' to see that, only understand the Holy Bible when it explains the supernatural reason for such things and the inevitability of Israel's enemies eventually making the final attempt to eliminate her in rebellion to Almighty God.
