Why Israel Matters

Please read Part II of this essay written by Barbara Ann Zweifler. The protection of Israel is a vital issue to our country, and a burden on many of our hearts. We must stand tall and strong with our sister in God, no matter what the cost. I hope you enjoy this 2 part series as much as I did!

Why Israel Matters

Traditional American and Western society is based on the Judeo–Christian ethic. Even the most secular Israeli or American has been shaped by a culture that was founded on these principals, and so this is the inherent lens through which we filter world events. European culture has slowly deteriorated over the last century into various forms of liberal secular socialism, inspiring sympathy toward Islamic thinking and hostility toward the traditional Judeo-Christian Westernism displayed almost exclusively today by America and Israel.

Islam is infinitely more compatible with totalitarian ideas than it is with Judeo-Christian ideals, and so the two naturally form an ideological alliance. This is nothing new. Both the Nazis and the Soviets had ideological and material alliances with Islam over half a century before 9/11. What Americans have failed to recognize and accept is that Islam is not the religion of peace, as it is politically correct for us to repeat and assume. Islam is the religion of pieces. It is a religion founded on war and its covenant with its adherents is based on world domination through Jihad.

Israel is on the front lines of our war, and has been, materially speaking, since 1948. Spiritually speaking, Israel has been on the front lines of our war since Abraham stood on one side of the river, and the rest of the world stood on the other. To separate the events in Israel as distinct from America’s war on terror is foolishness. Just as Spain was to Hitler, Israel is to Islam. It is the Aberdeen proving grounds, it’s Guernica – Israel is the place where they test the methods with disposable operatives (the Palestinians) before introducing the most successful terror tactics into wider use.

Understand the language of the enemy. A cease-fire or “hudna” is, to a western ear, a path to peace. Not so for Islam. A hudna is merely a war tactic to be used when they are feeling vulnerable and need time to regroup. There is no such thing as making peace with infidels in the religion of pieces. Only temporary tactical withdrawals with a ten year expiration date.

Don’t kid yourself that this is an exclusively Jewish or Israeli problem. As an American, you must begin to understand that the Jihadis view every American as either a Zionist (Jew) or a Crusader (Christian), both groups infidels, both groups marked for death. There are more Jews living in America than there are in Israel. There are very few Jews left living at all in Europe. France with approximately 60,000 has the largest European Jewish population, and the French Jews have been under severe harassment and attack these past three years to the point where they have been advised not to walk the street with any sign of their Judaism visible to
the public.

This insane Jihadist doctrine is not restricted to foreign interlopers. The signs that the so called anti-war movements in America hoist at their rallies virulently tie Anti-Semitism and Anti-Americanism together in the most vile ways imaginable. These are Americans – mostly highly educated Americans. The propaganda begins in the Universities. Some things are so insane that only educated intellectuals can believe them.

Photographs of these Americans displaying their twisted, propaganda fueled ideologies rarely if ever appear in mainstream news broadcasts. I have rarely seen this phenomenon profiled outside of the internet. One anonymous blogger documents it himself - he attended some rallies and shot some pictures – the following links lead to his photographs, which must be seen to be believed.

Anti-Americanism Communism, Marxism and Socialism Anti-Israel and Pro-Palestinian Activism. Everyone for Palestine: a Photo Essay. ConspiracyTheories About 9/11 Opposition to Bush Palestinian Chic
Idiots: Useful, Useless, and Beyond

Now that you’ve seen just what sort of bile your fellow Americans are buying into, get ready for the kicker. Most of them really believe it. The rest of them are just there to be fashionable, smoke some good pot, or score with a fuzzy legged chick in birkenstocks and a Keffiyah. Is it not common sense at this point to assume that any, all and sundry Jihadists want us destroyed as much as they want Israel annihilated? All they need is access, means and opportunity. It doesn’t even have to be interlopers. Any disgruntled 19 year old named Jamal in Queens or the alienated Queers for Palestine child of a wealthy American progressive family could get it into their heads one day to blow themselves to bits at their corner coffee shops, and leave notes referring to Hamas, Osama or the plight of the poor oppressed Palestinian people.

Realize that the 60’s radicals of yesterday are today’s university professors. Hell no, they wouldn’t go - so they became professional students which eventually morphed them into becoming today’s academic elite. These are the people that are “educating” your children. These are the liberals, the progressives, the post – Vietnam era communists who never met a dictator they didn’t like. John Kerry was one of their comrades, and he now has the opportunity to become president of this country. I shudder when I think of it.

    Oh, please. McCarthy rides again. Calling liberals 'communists' is just dittohead 'trash talk'. And as for supporting dictators, the US right wing has been in bed with just about every vile dictator that served it's needs. Reagan and Bush 1 supported Saddam Hussein! Look it up! We were best buddies with Noriega, until we weren't. As for South America... Pinochet ring a bell?

  • Thank you Barbara for an awesome essay and thanks to Sherri for posting to all the "bar flys" that belly-up to your blog.

    ISRAEL DOES MATTER!!! Feel like we are all walking around with a bullseye on our back. Enjoyed the comments about the academic elite. Soooo true.

  • - Another stirring, well presented post Sherri, the sort of clear no-nonsense your readers can always expect to find on your site. You never dissapoint.....

    - Well at least in one regard Barb won't have to worry the "Kerry threat" anymore, and true to their nature the asshats from the "party of peace and tolorance" always manage to display it for all too see.

    - Sending a joyous Thanksgiving holiday from my little family to yours - (Hunter and not-so mini-me)....

  • McMarthy? LOL! That is the equivelent to "Haliburton!" Ignore the actual content of the story, avoid making any point- just do drive-by! The Lib's will never learn to move ideas forward until they learn to stick to talking about ideas and issues, instead of whining endlessly, throwing bombs, and using inflammatory language basted in accusations.

    Write on- Sherri- WRITE ON!

  • - Generally speaking Sherri when the asshats start doing drivebys you can be pretty sure you're pissing them off with logic and facts, two words they seem to be missing from their delusional dictionaries. Case in point. The silly post of writer anon, (typical no-names from the terminally paranoids) has just enough information to be dangerous. History is replete with instances where Western leaders, both Democrat and Republican, have trusted people to stand by their word, only to discover their true nature. For anon's education: Castro was supported for many years when he was JFK's favorite "freedom fighter", (and Eisenhower before him), with gun's and money out the yingyang. We all know what a benevolent fellow he turned out to be. Saddam was another double crosser, who as soon as he found some one else to bleed, (Russia and France) he turned. As for Oriega, I simply love that one. Especially the reference that "We supported him, then we didn't" which sounds like it came right out of Shrums LurchKerry campaign speech notes. I seem to remember that once Oriega had been smoked out as a despot thieving murderer a certain Mass. Senator thought it would be a great idea to fly to his side for several photo-ops, declaring him an abused and misunderstood solid friend of America. The elitist "intellectuals" of the nattering naboob left can always be counted on NOT to do their homework before engaging in tantrums. Like errant misinformed children, from time to time they need disciplining......
