that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.” Psalm 83:4By Riley J. Hood-CPoW State Chairman
Iran is unalterably dedicated to the destruction of Israel, as all true Muslims are. Therefore, to negotiate with Iran, is to broker Israel’s destruction. It is appeasement, and even worse, nuclear appeasement. While I could talk about the Islamic doctrine of “Taquiya,” which allows the Muslim to lie, and still be holy at the same time, I will instead focus on Israel, and why we should retain our friendship with that nation.
- Israel is not Islamic. Israel is an island of sanity in a sea of raving monstrosities.
- Israel is a Republic/Democracy that affords freedom to its citizens. Unlike “Islamic democracy,” i.e. the Islamic Republic of Iran, because Israel isn’t run by Muslims, it actually has the capacity for freedom.
- Israel is a forward outpost, surrounded by hostility. In our “war on terror,” we talk about “forward operating bases.” Israel has been subjected to Islamic terror right from its inception. Israel is, as a nation the biggest “forward operating base.” in “the war on terror,” in existence; and they are willing to do their own fighting.
John Quincy Adams stated about America, “She goes not abroad in search of monsters to destroy. She is the well-wisher to the freedom and independence of all. She is the champion and vindicator only of her own.” I know that America is the guarantor of American liberty alone, but the beginning of the John Quincy Adams quote, is that we are the Friends of Liberty everywhere. Negotiating with Iran, the universal enemy of liberty is not being a friend of liberty anywhere. America ought to take heed as to how we treat our friends, because we have very few of them left.
Finally, while Israel is currently not the Messianic Kingdom, Christians are commanded to pray for the peace of Jerusalem, to bless the descendants of Abraham, and to pray that Israel turns to Christ. While there are centuries of bad blood between Jews and Christians, to the point where some people see Christian doctrine as an anti-Semitic argument, there is no place for anti-Semitism in the Christian faith, (Jesus was Jewish, so were the Apostles,) there is no place for anti-Semitism in the Constitution Party of Wisconsin (CPoW). There ought to be no place for anti-Semitism in America, including the Oval Office.
