These are my opinions on pretty much any subject that I think begs for my comments. You'll find my comments lean toward the conservative side (OK, so there's no left turn signal on my car)so if you are offended by conservative thought you may as well go find a tree to hug now.

Israel Fights for Survival

In case anyone has not caught on, I am a big supporter of Israel. Yes, Israel did deliberately strafe and torpedo the USS Liberty in 1967, but then again we sold Iran and Iraq weapons afterward: I think that evens things out just a bit. Now that that is done with, let’s talk about the present.

When the three Israeli soldiers were kidnapped, many Arab nations actually spoke out against Hezbollah, thinking that the US would then pull the reins on Israel and keep bombs from being dropped: just like every other time terrorists strike Tel Aviv or Haifa. This time the US simply asked Israel to use restraint in its strikes and allowed the Israelis to defend themselves when those that had the task (UN) would not. Now, the Arab nations have turned and spoken out in favor of Hezbollah. Not one of them has offered Lebanon assistance to disarm Hezbollah and force Israel to move back to its own territories, nor have they attempted to find and return the kidnapped Israeli soldiers. Nope, they simply place the entire blame on Israel and the United States.

Israel is now involved in a major land offensive to effectively create a DMZ between itself and Hezbollah. To do otherwise invites the destruction of their country. Israel is surrounded by enemies just waiting for the display of weakness. The ironic thing is those that call for Israel’s destruction call for an immediate ceasefire in the next breath. This is demonstrated by Iran’s president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad , in his speech to Moslem leaders in Malaysia when he said: "Although the main solution is for the elimination of the Zionist regime, at this stage an immediate cease-fire must be implemented,” With this kind of logic running Iran, it’s a wonder that Israel has not reduced Tehran to a smoking hole in the desert. If “the Zionists” were as vicious as these Arab leaders would have the world believe, they would have by now.

Every time Israel has provided the opportunity for peace, it has been attacked. The day after the state of Israel was established (not to mention that of Palestine) foreign armies were permitted into the Arab Partitions and Israel was attacked by Egypt, Syria, and Jordan. When Israel agreed to have UN peace keeping forces on the boarder between Egypt and itself, Egypt and Syria ended up attacking Israel (6 Day War). Israel withdraws from the Gaza Strip, and rocket launchers move in. Israel withdraws from the S. Lebanon security zone, and Hezbollah is allowed to strengthen its positions under the supervision of the UN and Iranian Army, leading to the current crisis. Israel has no choice this time. It must force the Arab nations of the world to take a hands-off position or be destroyed through diplomatic channels: something the Western World cannot afford.

If the Arab nations are allowed to destroy the state of Israel, they will have the power to dictate the terms of the United State’s existence. If the rest of the world sees the US as impotent, they will one by one fall under the control of the Moslem extremists. Spain has already fallen. Spain’s autonomy disappeared the day they gave into the threats of Al Qaeda and pulled out of Iraq. Iran is threatening the world with $200 per barrel oil if it is not allowed to develop nuclear weapons. The world has a chance to tell Iran to do its worst. The Western World needs to get behind Israel and allow the Israelis to do theirs.

I am with ya brother Chris!

But I say, turn Iran into a glass parking lot and support Israel to nip this in the bud.

I have a rather specific red-neck way of looking at things though.

I second that motion.
It's time we just let Israel loose on the scum that no one else will eliminate. Pray for Israel...pray for VICTORY.
