Israeli-Arab Conflict NOT to be Resolved on the World's Terms - America Notwithstanding

Reader comment on item: Americans Battle the Arab-Israeli Conflict
in response to reader comment: Great observation with clear and present danger in Iranian context

This reader is loathe to utilize the term 'clear and present danger' anymore except in tongue and cheek or being entertained by Harrison Ford as he navigates through the tangled web of governmental deception during yet another intrigue by which the world is drawn closer to a calamity of global proportions. One cannot start the day over except to be told that we are one step closer to the 'Day of Decision.' Then comes the question: where do we turn?

America had entwined herself in Middle Eastern politics since before oil was made the economy of the realm and protection of her fledgling trade routes were forced in post crusader attitudes, evidently dealing with Islamic pirates over two hundred years ago and though the treasure are different, the people are still dealing with the piracies of the current events. But the current American Administrative Chief Executive's attitudes no longer protect American interests, but give succor to the Muslim ones - as in Cairo; America (his America) is no longer enemies with the Islamists.

American Arab collaborations are, in fact, later combinations of the oil-based constructs of these contemporary times, the earlier connection to the Jewish diaspora paradigm having been forged almost from America's beginning and inculcated in her establishment as a place of religious freedom; words of fresh liberty to a decidedly persecuted peoples. Even as America was formed, Jerusalem as the Jewish homeland was still in future prophecy, and not as it is fulfilled today.

America's positions in the current Israeli-Arab antagonisms and larger hostilities are no longer definable as they once were, from a long time set of circumstances since 1948 that have made relationships hard to pursue due to enmity in strange places and a changing and shifting allegiances due to the Arab oil enrichment program that places love of automobile over the more appropriate allegiances to friends of freedom like Israel. Under the current animosity of the America's administrative leadership, the lessons of blessings America once held are being arbitrated away in Switzerland as Israel is being sold out to a global diatribe of growing anti-Semitism.

The final circumstance from which the world will never recover is that the Iranians are not negotiating for peace; that the Israeli-Arab crisis is merely the diversion of a far greater paradigm which seeks not peace on the world's terms, especially not immediately for Jerusalem; not until that is, Israel's enemies are quelled by their own hatreds and the world seeks Abraham's blessings through Israel's final destiny.
