The Land of Israel

I have watched the news and the speeches of world leaders at the United Nations, and I am absolutely mystified at what I have seen and heard. Our own President Barack Hussein Obama gave a speech that was spurious at best. He told the same untruth that his administration has been giving us since the attack on our embassy and the murder of our Ambassador to Libya and 3 others. His speech was long on apologies and short on action. I watched Israel’s Leader Binyamin Netanyahu, who stood up and spoke truth into a hateful group of people who wish only his and Israel’s destruction. I watched as Iran’s Leader spoke hate and destruction of Israel and the United States and then Egypt’s Leader spew hate for Israel and the West. I was amazed that we still allow the U. N. to take up space in our nation. It is not a group of nations who are intent on cooperation but rather a set of factions ready and willing to destroy those who are not like them, and then to destroy each other in the name of their god.

I did some research into this people called Israel, and am even more surprised and mystified as to why so many people want to destroy this land and its people. First let me dispel this lie that the Jewish people have only been in that part of the world for 50 to 60 years. Jews have lived in Israel (the Romans called it Palestine) for thousands of years. There is scientific evidence for their presence in the land. Even after Rome defeated them and destroyed the 2nd Temple in AD 70, there were still Jews left in the land. Jews returned to the land over the next 2,000 years after having been exiled, they came back and joined with their brothers and sisters who were not exiled. By the 1870’s they were again the majority religious group in Jerusalem. As they moved back they purchased the land from the Arabs who claimed it but did not live on it.
In modern times the Jewish people have reclaimed the desert, they planted trees and crops and the land again became what it once was, a land of beauty.

Why would the Arab nations want to destroy Israel, a place where the people have improved the standard of living for all who live in their land. Arabs and Jews alike share in the bounties of the land, Arab citizens serve in the Government, and in the Homeland Security positions, they are not discriminated against they are active participants in the life of Israel. Let us also understand some of the things that Israel has contributed to the world. They are the only Country in the world that entered the 21st Century with more trees than there were prior. It was the Israeli scientists who came up with bacteria to clean up oil spills. They have developed systems for irrigation that has changed agriculture, their drip irrigation system uses less water and is more efficient than other systems. It is in use here in the United States in South Texas. They developed the sun heated water tank, which converts solar energy into thermal energy.

Israeli scientists have also developed a vaccine to treat anthrax, research is moving on for treatment and/or cures for type 1 Diabetes, Parkinson’s Disease, Alzheimer’s and emphysema. They even have a device that causes acne bacteria to self-destruct without damage to surrounding skin. Safer methods for diagnosing diseases, how about a mini-video camera that fits inside a pill (indigestible of course) that will allow for diagnosis of intestinal diseases, and safer imaging techniques for diagnosing breast cancer.

Israeli researchers are also working on a (the Jetsons live), flying car, the Israeli company Urban Aerodynamics has a prototype they are testing, it is called, “X-Hawk Rotorless Flying Evacuation Car”. Israel is also the “Silicon Valley” of the world, they are the 4th largest high-tech economy since the 1990s. Microsoft and Intel have both built their only non-US R&D facilities in Israel. They developed the cell phone (Motorola-Israel), the technology behind AOL Instant Messenger, the first PC anti-virus software (1979), voice mail technology, nanotechnology and electro-optic chips. They also developed the Pentium 4 Microprocessor for desktops and the Centrino processor for laptops.

Israel also has the third-highest rate of entrepreneurship in the world, including the highest rate among women and people over 55. They also have the world’s highest per capita rate of university degrees, they have the highest ratio of scientists and technicians in the workforce, 135 per 1,000 citizens. In the U. S. the number is 85 per 1,000 citizens. They also rank third worldwide in per capita patents, behind the U. S. and Japan. Why then would there be so much hatred toward the Jews, toward Israel?

Why destroy such a treasure trove of science and technology? Could it be that the hatred that has exhibited itself over and over again throughout history, is something that will only be ended when, as we Christians believe the Messiah will come to right the wrongs of the world? The Jewish people are still waiting for the first coming, we believe it will be the second coming, but it does seem that the only way this hatred will be ended is for God to intervene and end the bloodshed and hatred that emanates from the Arab and Iranian (they are not arabs) people. This seems to be the only explanation, for this terrible wish to destroy Israel that comes from so many of these countries. Of course we can’t forget the Russians and the Chinese who are backing the Arabs and Iranians against the Jewish people.

I pray that we in the United States will wake up and again be a people who stand solidly with our ONLY ally in the Middle East. I was horrified when our President said that Israel was one of our strongest allies in that region. Even Jordan is under attack by the Muslim Brotherhood, Al Quaeda, Hamas, and Hezbollah. Jordan has been an ally, but, that is going to end before too long as the Caliphate comes closer to realization.

Join the conversation, what do you think about Israel and it’s people? Leave a comment so we can talk about this.
