Clash of Wills - Clash of Empires - Kingdom Victory

Reader comment on item: Poll: Israelis Want Victory, Preferably without Paying the Price
in response to reader comment: A Matter Of Will

Submitted by M Tovey (United States), Jun 9, 2021 at 10:40

Israel has always been targeted by empires; Egypt in the time of Joseph and Moses; Babylon during Nebuchadnezzar, Medo-Persia, Greeks and Romans, etc. And Israel is still here; the Iranian Islamic Regime really needs to do their historical homework; oh well.
The distinction about the United States and Viet Nam is that America was not/is not an empire, not like the French that had their colonial ambitions flushed out of the jungle when challenged by the Marxist ideologies that have been fighting for empire like control in Soviet and Maoist entities we see today.
Israel was never an empire; its theocracy and later kingdom(s) are its destiny and will be again.
It is a matter of Divine will, as the Tanakh has stated all along.
