The Only Solution to the Middle East Crisis

There is only one solution to the world’s problem of dealing with radical Islam, and it must be a multi-generational endeavor.  There can be no peaceful co-existence with a people bent on spreading their culture of death and tyranny to consume cultures of life and liberty.

For hundreds of years this enemy has been tolerated because it did not present a major threat to civilized societies, but it has now metastasized into a major threat to world civilization, and it can no longer be tolerated because it now has the technology and power to wreak havoc on the earth. We need national leadership that can successfully:

  1. Lead the American people to understand the threat of radical Islam and to choose to defeat it at any cost. Remember, it was a Democrat President, JFK, who articulated the character of the American spirit of 1961 when he said we will, “pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, in order to assure the survival and the success of liberty.” We must re-claim that courageous American spirit. We need a President who will lead the Congress in a declaration of war against radical Islam, and then we must wage war to win.

 

  1. Then as a unified nation expressed in the voice of Congress, we must develop a coalition of  nations to join us in this war, and this must be done without political mischief. Every decision must be driven by discerning the most effective way to defeat radical Islam. America must be willing to lead unless and until another nation displays the resources and capacity to lead more effectively than we can.  Shared leadership would be the ideal, but not required. Then we must launch an all-out war to neutralize every enclave of radical Islam. There can be no question about the fact that this will be a “world-war,” a war over religion–the world powers against Radical Islam.

 

  1. Then we must initiate a long-view strategy to educate the progeny of our defeated foe about the blessings of liberty and self-government.

These three steps though simply stated represent the only solution—I repeat, the only solution—to the problem of radical Islam.  The longer we delay in its implementation, the more it will cost in blood and treasure, unless of course we choose to surrender to the forces of radical Islam in their quest to establish the Caliphate called for by the blueprint they follow—the Koran.

Regarding the Koran and so-called “Moderate Muslims” we must make it clear that in this country at least, we hold freedom of religion as a human right, consistent with the precepts of our U.S. Constitution and our Judeo-Christian traditions.  Therefore we will not allow such things as the subjugation of women, honor killings, or any other activity that transgresses our laws and traditions. We are a “Christian” nation to the extent that our laws and institutions presuppose a belief in the God of the Bible and as our founders taught,

[i]“And whereas it is the duty of nations as well as of men, to own their dependence upon the overruling power of God…and to recognize the sublime truth, announced in the Holy Scriptures and proven by all history, that those nations only are blessed whose God is the Lord.”

In order to secure liberty and peace for our posterity we must actively defeat radical Islam while at the same time we must encourage belief of our citizens in the God of the Bible while allowing people of other religions to live peaceably with us as long as the practice of their religion is consistent with the institutions and laws of our Constitutional republic.

The task I have outlined seems impossible—and it is. It can only succeed with the help of Divine Providence, that same Providence that gave victory to an ill-equipped, ill-trained band of rebels against the most powerful army in the world in its time.

The alternative is unthinkable. Let us therefore pray like it all depends on God, and work like it all depends on us to “assure the survival and the success of liberty.”

More Than Condolences, Mr. President

President Barak Obama’s response to the kidnapping and murder of three Israeli teenagers by Hamas was an offer of condolences and an admonishment to refrain from any actions that might “destabilize the situation.”

Like Neville Chamberlain who thought he could be nice to Hitler and survive, so does President Obama think peace on earth will be realized if we can all just get along. His reluctance to defend our friends and even American citizens abroad has emboldened the enemy—and yes, Islamists are our enemies, just ask them. He has given them the time and space they need to build an army capable of challenging the West. In fact, his actions pulling out of war zones and leaving our equipment and weapons behind are actually arming our enemies to war against us. One has to ask, “Whose payroll is he on, anyway?”

Forget about refraining from actions that might destabilize the situation. We must stand with Israel to defend her against radical Islam, then we must take the war to the enemy before he can bring it to our shores.

The world has known a hundred year wars before, and this might be another one. We must eliminate those who are bent on destroying us, while we teach principles of liberty and democracy to their children until the culture of tyranny and death is replaced by a culture of liberty and life. This will not be accomplished in one, or even two generations. We must start now for the benefit of our posterity, or we will find ourselves all under Sharia law. There is no middle ground, not as long as Islamists are bent on establishing their caliphate, and that they are.

Israel needs more than condolences Mr. Obama. Israel needs an ally ready to fight side-by-side with her to defeat our common enemy. Let’s pray our next President will understand that, and that Israel will survive until then.

THE FIRST “ANTI-AMERICAN” AMERICAN PRESIDENT

I have said before—and I have been criticized for saying it—that President Obama is the first “un-American American President.” Well, let me take that a step further. The recent release of five Taliban high level commanders is evidence that he is the first “Anti-American” American President. His actions actually give aid and comfort to the enemy—grounds for treason. Not only is this a morale booster for the Taliban fighters, but he supplied them with high level commanders, now elevated as heroes because of their Gitmo experience. They will no doubt help to recruit more soldiers who will kill Americans, and whose blood will be on the hands of this President. He couldn’t be more of an ally to our enemies than these actions represent. One wonders if he might be on their payroll instead of the payroll of the American people.

Congress must stop him by whatever legal means possible before he does further damage to our country. The American people must rise from their complacency or we will lose the liberty, prosperity and peace we have been blessed with since our founding. This is no time for summer soldiers or sunshine patriots.
