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.
