Israel & Islamic Radicals - No Moral Equivalency

Israel has been fighting for its very existence since it was founded in 1948.  Israel, a pluralistic democracy, is home to about 7 million Jews, Christians,  Muslim Arabs and people of other faiths, or no faith at all.   As a result, there are Jewish Temples, Christian Churches and Muslim Mosques all over Israel as people practice their religions freely.   With the exception of Egypt and Jordon, other Arab countries in the Middle East and Iran, that control all the other land in the Middle East, do not accept Israel's right to exist as a nation, on a tiny strip of land that is not as big as the smallest states in the US. 

Palestinians are already part of Arab countries called Jordon and Egypt, which should take control of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip to end the Arab-Israeli crisis, once and for all and bring both peace and cooperative economic development to the region because the Palestinians continue to prove that they cannot govern themselves.  This is the only solution that the international community, including the United States, should be trying to negotiate and accomplish.  Instead, Israel faces Hamas and Hezbollah, Terrorist organizations on its borders, supported by Iran, committed to the destruction of Israel.  It is the Islamic Radicals in the Arab world and Iran, that want to destroy Israel, that continue to prolong this battle, by arming the Terrorists, rather than seeking peace.  There will never be peace as long as this continues. 

It is important to recognize that these Islamic Radical countries have no religious, or personal freedom in their countries.   Any remaining Christians and Jews in those countries are persecuted and even murdered.  They should be given refugee status by Western countries so that they can leave. The Terrorists in Iraq have given Christians in the territory they now control four choices; convert to Islam, pay a tax, leave, or die.  These are Christians that have lived in the Middle East for 1,900 years and Jews that lived there for 5,000 years long before Islam ever existed.   Terrorists in Iraq and North Africa are destroying Christian churches.   It is illegal to practice Christianity, or Judaism in many of these Islamic countries, including those that are supposed to be allies to the US.

As Israel fights for its very existence, it is important for all peoples of the world to recognize that there is NO MORAL EQUIVALENCY between Israel and Islamic Radicals around the world.  These fanatics are attempting to create an Islamic Radical Caliphate in the Middle East and around the world that threatens our freedom.  Destruction of Israel is part of their plan.   We can't let that happen.
