Ted Noel, American Thinker: To use an expression that politicians love when covering their lies, let me be perfectly clear: Israel cannot coexist with evil. It’s just that simple.
The Apostle Paul put it this way: “Do not be unequally bound together with unbelievers [do not make mismatched alliances with them, inconsistent with your faith]. For what partnership can righteousness have with lawlessness? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness?” 2 Corinthians 6:14 (Amplified Bible)
I doubt if the Apostle was thinking about our modern strife, but it’s pretty clear that he knew the principles in play. After all, God told Abraham that his heirs would not possess the Promised Land until the “iniquity of the Amorite” was full (Gen 15:16). We know from Amos 2:9-10 that the Amorites were giants. These giants were the progeny of fallen gods and human women (Gen 6:2, 4). The Israelites were to utterly wipe out all the giant clans (devote them to destruction). And before you throw that other size 9, read The Unseen Realm, by Michael S. Heiser PhD. You cannot coexist with covert evil. It’s all in the Bible.
But I’m not here to do theology. The Apostle’s principle is in play here. God does not require us to wipe out our neighbors if they don’t believe in Him. And most secular moderns are happy to go along and get along. But Israel’s neighbors aren’t the slightest bit interested in coexistence. Their recent actions show the utter evil of their hearts. In spite of this being demonstrated multiple times in the past, Israel has attempted to deal with them as equals, making peace treaties that the neighbors violated repeatedly.
No sane person would behead babies (unless he’s an abortionist, but I repeat myself). Then, add in raping women in the presence of the bloody bodies of their babies, then killing the women. I don’t care who you are, this is not the act of a civilized entity. It is the act of sub-humans devoted to the service of a false god who demands obedience at the point of a sword. It is pure evil. No words can properly convey how utterly depraved such a god and his followers are. And this is where our compassion must be replaced by cold calculation. [-]
[+] … The basic problem here is simple. Israel’s enemies are evil. They are completely sold out to evil. Nothing Israel does or doesn’t do will change that. And, by the way, when they’ve chewed up Israel, we’re next. Wait! I misspoke. They won’t wait to finish off Israel before they start here. 9/11 was just one of the early strikes. And in the last two years, the U.S. Border Patrol has encountered 72,823 “special interest aliens.” Lots of these were military-age males from the Middle East. So how many got through that weren’t “encountered?” [-]
[+] … As long as jihadis stand ready to destroy Israel, that state can no longer afford to be “unequally yoked” to them by way of treaties. Just as Israel of old was commanded to never make treaties with the giant clans, the state of Israel can never make treaties with jihadis. Jordan has been wise to eschew jihad in favor of peace with Israel. The other states can as well, but as long as jihadis run the show, Israel should simply refuse to deal with them as civilized humans. No treaty of any sort can be entertained. This stance must be bolstered with overwhelming responses any time Israel is attacked.
Lefties ignorant of history plead for proportionality. Israel should give it to them. Jihad-is refuse to consider Israel’s right to exist. Israel should not consider the right of any jihadi to exist. America should do the same. You cannot coexist with covert evil. [end]
Outside of the confines of AT there are numerous writings about the “plight” of the Palestinians. The bottom line, Israelies built a country in desert lands and prospered. At every opportunity to thrive, terrorists like Hamas and Hezbollah focused on murder. That is what is taught. Just watched a video of Palestinian children calling out for the death of Jews.
Self-defense doesn’t equal atrocity. Nor does unintended collateral damage, thereby generally dismissing the argument. Successive generations of Palestinians will swear their lives to the destruction of Israel no matter what Israel does. Israel has repeatedly shown humanity, generosity, decency. Every time, Palestinians of some stripe rise up like rabid dogs. You can’t negotiate with a rabid dog; he must be put down, and the sooner the better. You cannot coexist with covert evil.
And on that note, time for today’s MAGA Pill – Warrior-President Donald John Trump – MAGA! KAG!
