Listen to today’s broadcast:
ISIS (Islamic State in Iraq and Syria) has proclaimed itself the new caliphate under Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. They have now placed all remaining Christians in Iraq under dhimmitude. The Christians are now given three choices; 1) convert to Islam, 2) pay a religious tas (jizya), or 3) die.
Here is what the announcement said:
We offer them three choices: Islam; the dhimma contract – involving payment of jizya; if they refuse this they will have nothing but the sword,
Conversion or death don’t need to be explained but the jizya is a tax paid by non-Muslims for “protection” from the Islamic state. According to Umar, the second caliph, it is 50% of they owned and 50% of what they earned. This is not radical Islam, this is Islam and this is what ISIS is installing in Iraq, Syria, and any other place they can occupy.
Let’s look at what is happening in Israel. If you have followed the news over the weekend you know that Israel has started their ground offensive. I stand corrected because I predicted that this would happen, but not until after Ramadan. The reason Israel when ahead at this time is because Hamas has not stopped its rocket attacks on Israel. Netanyahu is left with no other option to protect his people.
Now I want to start looking at the Obama doctrine on Israel. I want us to see how President Obama views Israel. We are going to look into some things he has said and done so we can understand his mindset concerning Israel. We will look at his Cairo speech and some other things that reveal his doctrine on the subject of Israel.
First lets talk about what is going on in Israel right now. The conflict between Israel and Hamas in Gaza is heating up. I want to remind you that Hamas, which is a jihadi organization, is the governing body of the Palestinian Authority. In other words Hamas is running the show for the Palestinians. This past week Egypt had tried to broker a cease fire between Israel and Hamas. Israel accepted the cease fire but Hamas immediately rejected it and it was not worth the ink with which it was written. This gives us a clear picture of what happens over and over again. Israel gets attacked by thousands of rocket being fired into its population areas and when Israel responds to defend herself as we would if our home was being attacked repeatedly, she gets lambasted by the media and by the world’s governments, including ours. Yet again, Israel wants to accept a cease fire and Hamas won’t.
This is not surprising when we understand the stated goal of Hamas. Hezbollah, another jihadi organization based in Lebanon and funded by Iran, has the same goal has Hamas. Both have stated that they will not stop fighting until Israel is totally destroyed. These groups and others, including nations like Iran, talk a good talk about a two state solution when talking to the West, but when we listen to what they say among themselves and read their charters and other written statements we clearly see their goal of the obliteration of Israel.
Our question today is where does President Obama stand and what is his doctrine on Israel. Why does it appear that, more than any president in our history, he is abandoning Israel as fast as he can. The only thing that is holding him back is public pressure.
I don’t know who it was that first said this, but it tells the story of the situation faced by Israel very clearly:
If tomorrow Israel were to lay down its weapons and refuse to fight any more the result would be that there would be no more Israel.
If tomorrow the Palestinians would lay down their weapons and refuse to fight any more the result would finally be peace in the Middle East.
If Israel stopped fighting the Muslims would destroy her and she would cease to exist. Israel only wants to live in peace so if the Muslims would stop fighting the hostilities would end and we would have peace.
Here is a question that will also help clarify this. If you want to live in peace with your neighbor and your neighbor stated that they were not going to rest until I wipe you out of this neighborhood, now can you negotiate with that?
President Obama tells Israel that, not only must they negotiate with a neighbor when it is dedicated to their destruction, they must negotiate back to the 1967 borders. That tells you a lot about the Obama doctrine concerning Israel.
The only thing that can protect Israel is force. This is the only language of negotiation the Muslims understand. The following cartoon says it all.
Lets start looking at Obama’s doctrine and we where he is coming from. Something slipped out at the 2011 G20 meeting in Caen, France. The microphones were left on and we heard a conversation between Sarkozy, who was then the president of France, and Obama. They are talking about the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamen Netanyahu. Here is what Sarkozy said about him:
I can’t stand him. He is a lair.
Then Obama said:
You’re fed up with him, but I have to deal with him everyday,
This gives us insight into what Obama thinks about Netanyahu who is our only ally in the Middle East. The treatment that Netanyahu is getting from this present administration is appalling to say the least.
I think the Obama doctrine concerning Israel can be best seen in the first speech he made when he went overseas. He went to Cairo, Egypt and it helps us understand where he is coming from. We will be looking at this in the next couple of days.
