Science Fiction tries to tell you that every action small or large, results in a ripple effect that has the potential to change the world. I remember an old Star Trek episode where the heros go back in time and Kirk saves a nurse from being hit by a car. Because she lived, the Nazis win WWII. So the boys had to go back in time and let her die.
Sometimes there is truth in fiction. With each passing news report It becomes more obvious that the recent Democratic victory has created a ripple that may result in the destruction of Israel as a Jewish State.
Look at the facts. Within a few days after of GOP the loss, President Bush was compelled to make quick changes in his Middle East strategy in order to maintain some degree political power. He turned to a solution that he had reject before, the James Baker-led Iraq study group. Led by the former Secretary of State Baker, this group started with the premise that the only way to help the President in Iraq was to abandon Israel as a strategic partner (the same policy Baker pushed when he was Sec of State). Lending additional credence to the anti-semitic crap about the Iraqi war was fought on behalf of Israel.
Lets take a look at the ripples that have happened since then. Olmert has had more erosion to his already fragile resolve. Israel has let Hezbollah rearm right under the watchful eyes of IAF Flyovers and UNIFIL. He has done NOTHING, not even raised a fuss in the UN (not that it would do any good).
The spineless PM has allowed the Palestinian terrorists to shell territory within the pre-1967 borders without significant retaliation. He has agreed to a truce without any terrorist concessions. And just yesterday he told the IDF that they couldn’t defend Israel against the rockets.
With today’s surreal news, things have gone from bad to worse. To begin with John Bolton, probably Israel’s biggest UN Defender since Patrick Moynihan, has resigned from his post. Pushed out by a combination of Democratic Senators who refused to let his nomination come to the full Senate, and of course Baker, who only gained power because of the democratic victory. As the President said:
“I am deeply disappointed that a handful of United States Senators prevented Ambassador Bolton from receiving the up or down vote he deserved in the Senate,” Bush added. “They chose to obstruct his confirmation, even though he enjoys majority support in the Senate, and even though their tactics will disrupt our diplomatic work at a sensitive and important time. This stubborn obstructionism ill serves our country, and discourages men and women of talent from serving their nation.”
Mr. President so are we.
YNetnews reported today an incredibly surreal story about how the US, with Israel’s help has been supplying arms to Fatah, who in turn is planning to us them against Israel.
In her meeting last week with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice pledged her country would provide Abbas’ Force 17 security forces with new weapons to bolster the group against Hamas, according to senior Palestinian officials.
A senior member of Force 17 told WND in an exclusive interview Sunday that any US aid and weapons given to his security organization will be used to attack Jews and “fight Israeli occupation.”
The man, Abu Yousuf, hinted new weapons provided by the US to Force 17 could be shared with the al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades terror organization, the declared “military wing” of Abbas’ Fatah party.
“We will not use these weapons against our brothers in Hamas unless they try to attack (Abbas). The US is working with the Zionists to try to generate civil war in the Palestinian territories but that will not work. These weapons will put to use against the Israelis,” said Abu Yousuf.
Abu Yousuf also hinted previous American assault rifles sent by the US to Force 17 in May were used in a spate of shooting attacks against Israeli civilians.
Baruch Hashem, the children of Israel has withstood many a small ripple that has changed the world. This time it is not the work of gentiles, but ourselves, in the US and in the leadership of Israel. It seems that we ourselves are trying our hardest to create not a ripple, but a tsunami, destined to wipe out Israel and the Jewish people. We didn’t support those who help us, and now they are forced to ignore our needs. Its simple politics. Or as Jim Baker, who may very well turn out to be our executioner once said, “F*!K them they didn’t vote for us anyway”.
The people who did win now know they can crap all over us and we will still vote for them. One small mid-term elections, many negative side effects.
