Obama's Speech to the Muslim World

With regard to the Israel-Palestine issue, President Barak Obama reiterates his vision of a two state solution. Given the reaction he has thus far received from Israel regarding their inability to stop settlement activity. He should focus more on Israel becoming more of an open society where the doors to opportunity are open for all as equal citizens.

As Bob Marley said:

"Until the philosophy which hold one race superior And another Inferior Is finally And permanently Discredited And abandoned - Everywhere is war - Me say war."

Until Obama stops skirting around the issue by talking about the symptom - which is the presence of large numbers of dispossessed people, the disease continues to grow. That disease is a virus which has three components: Christian Zionism, Jewish Zionism, and Palestinian Zionism.

Christian Zionists support and enable Jewish Zionism through unconditional support in the form of moral, military, and financial support. But because of their end-time theology, empower the more extreme elements within Jewish Zionism.

Jewish Zionism is based on religious ideology on the one hand, and as a reaction to the Holocaust on the other.

Palestinian Zionism is based on the belief that they have a right to live on their parent's and grandparent's land.

Obama talked about the actions of Jewish Zionists and Palestinian Zionists and what they could do to move toward a two state solution. However, he neglects to mention the elephant in the room: Christian Zionists. To make any progress with the latter two groups, it is essential to acknowledge the role of Christian Zionists. We will see the kind of reaction Obama's speech will get with this group.

As Gaza burned, TBS featured programs on Petra

rinity Broadcasting Network (TBS) featured a prophesy inspired documentary about Petra as Gaza burned. Aparently they believe it has relevance to current events.

Petra, they claim, will be a place of refuge for Israel when the Arabs join in a coalition with Gog and Magog to come and destroy God's chosen people. This is the war TBS and CUFI believe they are waging.
They see only through one eye and are blind to the reality on the ground where over a million people are cramped into refugee camps. And where there are Palestinian Israelis living peacefully inside Israel. It's not that the two sides cannot live peacefully together. It's that Palestinians cannot accept life in refugee camps peacefully. They want to believe that Arabs want a Holocaust of Jews. Based on this belief as a starting point, they make defense preparations. This is why they stress Israel's right to self defense.
Bill Moyers has this excellent documentary which offers a glimpse at their ideology and into the high level of access they have to policy makers in the United States.
