The Reality is That Israel's Right to Possess the Land Cannot be Lost in a Horse Race

Reader comment on item: In Mideast, Bet on a Strong Horse
in response to reader comment: claim and reality in the "Lebensraum" concept

Depending upon who one would refer to in defining what the concept of 'living room' meant to Germany, there are various perceptions that can be considered, not only that found in Wikipedia. My own personal introduction forty years ago to how that concept was used as a justification for occupying Czechoslovakia and other places came initially from two sources; one from an excerpted commentary on the actions of Hitler by Winston Churchill and another from a biography of a SS Waffen officer who was involved peripherally by his indoctrination before being sent to the Russian front. The point to be made is that any given rationalization can be used to support an action that would otherwise cause a rash reaction of the conscience of any civil person.

Under the guise of building a new Germany, your premise that the socio-political efforts of Hitler, Himmler and the rest of the Nationalist Socialist regime was to exterminate the Jewish and other non-desirable elements in Europe, but which at the time was covertly manipulated for public consumption and ignored by many for other reasons of political convenience. In spite of that, there is the true underlying reason for it to have happened, but many will argue for a lesser set of circumstances than the reality. The reality is that it was scripturally ordained in a process described, at minimum, from Deuteronomy and Ezekiel, with other references carefully orchestrated in coincident frames of reference.

You ask, "(w)ould the (A)rabs have such an interest in the Israeli terrority were there no Jews at all?" Your feeling that the Arabs are in some form of jealousy over Israel's prosperity is only a minor argument to their stated overwhelming desire to eliminate Israel altogether, or their theft and destruction of Jewish artifacts to hide the Jewish identity of 'al-Quds,' or trying to appease the 'Palestinian' mindset that the land of Israel belongs to them by some process of world order, missing that the greater circumstance is more deep-rooted and fundamental to the crisis we see today. But as long as anyone continues to try and make the argument that the Holy Bible has no part in that situation, then no amount of human reasoning is going to make sense as to why humanity will never see peace in the Middle East. The Almighty God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob has said, repeatedly and demonstrably, that Israel owns the rights to the land, and possession is slowly but surely being worked out, according to the plan of Almighty God.

The ancient lands of the Hebrews had been held for centuries by non-Jewish interests, more recently (in a long term historical context) and notably by the Muslim takeover that lasted until 1917. From then, the process that placed the Jewish people in the land took on the Divinely ordained process of Ezekiel 37 and now we read the continuation of that in Chapter 38, with a corollary excerpt in Zephaniah and other places. Completion of Zechariah is next on the way to the Revelation.

So, yes, the process of justifying a process like that of the Arabs wanting to expel the Jews from their homeland is older than Hitler's pogroms (though we are aware of the collusion between Himmler's SS and the mufti's intentions in the Middle East), and yet we can take knowledge that Israel is going to be the winner of the 'race' in spite of all the claims being made on behalf of the 'Palestinian' cause, just as the WWII remnant did when escaping Hitler's plan for Lebensraum. The Arabs and other Muslim interests can make all the arguments they want, and even try to force the issue with nuclear intentions, but they have yet to find out why they cannot thwart the plans of Almighty God for Israel, a situation that can only be reconciled by obedience to the Holy Bible.

And so, yes, the white horse is coming.
