It is posited here: [Israel is the exception; but how can an American work on Middle Eastern issues and not deal with Israel?]

The true answer is: one cannot.

Yet, as has been attempted for years, decades and centuries, the antagonists (they are legion and many)of the Jewish nation and state cannot help themselves. A quick re-reading of the post 'Immanuel Kant vs. Israel' provides the clue and basic contention of why this is so. Israel stands in the way of the 'Novus ordo seclorum.' Why(?): for those who know: Jerusalem in its future destiny is the center of earth's controversy.

Even in the more modern context, an American Administrative Chief Executive pontificated on achieving a 'one world order.' Now, who could argue with that? Everything that points to establishing some global sense of governance for the sake of peace, however, contradicts what is best for Israel.

The contention is ancient, pervasive and incontrovertible. And yet it persists. It is now inherited by the current American Administrative Chief Executive, surrounded by the same contesters from the 44th American Administration who are more than willing to collaborate with Israel most hostile enemies in order to achieve that globalist accomplishment.
