Israel’s Pearl Harbor

In the minutes before Hamas murderers shot down hundreds at an Israeli music festival, one person managed to photograph — quite by accident — several small black dots in the sky, coming in from the east. Even as they passed overhead, I’m sure the Israelis thought nothing of it… with precisely the same innocent trust that Americans stationed at Pearl Harbor had as swarms of Japanese aircraft began their attack.

They were “thinking” … wishfully, that the sheer shock and awe of it would make Israel and the west crumble.

Historically, Israel has always been pushed into backing off every time they are attacked by terrorist groups, whether from Gaza or Lebanon or Syria or wherever. The world leaders and media shake their fingers at Israel and pile on the fake shame that Israel has the audacity to defend itself and that they do it forcefully, focusing on killing those who are responsible for the terror and it doesn’t matter that it is “disproportionate.” They have to be counting on this pattern to repeat itself. That’s exactly why this continues to happen and it’s how we go to this point… Read more »

Regardless of the name of the group – Hamas, Boko Haram, Islamic Jihad, Islamic State (IS), etc. – the source for their ideas, including Jew Hatred, and the manual for their actions, is always the same and has been for the last 1400 years – the primary Islamic doctrine, taken from the Koran, Hadith (Mohammed’s traditions), and the Sira (Mohammed’s biography). Koran 9:29 “Fight against those who (1) believe not in Allah, (2) nor in the Last Day, (3) nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger (4) and those who acknowledge not the religion of… Read more »

My father stood on a hill overlooking Pearl Harbor, concerned about why was the whole USNavy locked in the Harbor, and then he stood helpless as he saw why. He was in the ArmyAirCorps, and he understood. Then he was one of the high ranking NCO’s who were set in a field to observe an experiment when the FIRST nuclear bomb was set off to see what it would do to humans, the unit that was stationed under that bomb. They still haven’t come clean about that.

SOMEBODY said, during this week’s Backstage, that we make a mistake by assuming that people are evil, when THEY believe that they’re doing good. There is NO rational or logical basis for distinguishing these Hamas animals (or Nazi’s) from our globalist traitors (and baby killers, and perverts) who infest America. Hamas and the Nazi’s (and the rest) fervently believe(d) that their actions are/were good and right and just. The ONLY reason why the Nazi’s tried to hide what they did is that they knew that not everybody shared their opinion and tried to mitigate the evidence against themselves. The theology… Read more »

The basic nature of man is evil.”
That is not true. I think the basic nature of man is broken and susceptible to the temptations of evil. That is a useful distinction, because it allows for hope that grace is possible for our individual redemption.
That said, I am convinced that many people are devoid of such redemption possibilities, because they wholly reject God for some other false replacement (i.e., allah, riches, hedonism, etc.).

I’m not interested in what “[you] think.” I’m only interested in what God thinks. He has given His unambiguous pronouncemeent (He has no “opinions”) on this subject. If you don’t care about His pronouncement, you’ve got a much more serious problem than “the nature of man.”

There are at least 51 reasons that US Intelligence Agencies were not aware of this beforehand: They are the 51 former Agency Officials who signed the 2020 memo saying the Hunter Biden Laptop was Russian propaganda. THEY politicized the intelligence agencies instead of doing their jobs. This is a democrat-designed system failure.

I’ve heard the phrase “morally equivalent” a few times this week, and it got me to thinking: are Judaism, Islam and Christianity morally equivalent? I’ve never thought deeply about it; just presumed they were. Now, I question it.

RSAE is absolutely correct. I’ve studied enough of Islam’s texts to understand that it promotes the the conversion of the Kaffir (that’s anyone who is not Muslim in spite of the more limited association with black Africans). If conversion is rejected, then subjugation and imposition of jizyah (essentially protection money in the form of a mandated tax). If subjugation fails, then execution is demanded. In the context of Jews, Islam declares death as step one — skipping all the others. Christians are similarly despised creatures. You may have heard that Islam is the religion of peace. Well, that is a… Read more »

I’ve studied the character and aspects of Islam for quite a while too. In addition to living in the Middle East and dealing directly with its votaries. Everything you said is true. In the interest of debunking moral equivalence and moral ambiguity it’s important to understand that the modern Islamic world is based on a huge lie. That lie being that Allah is the same Creator God as the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Christians worship the same God as the Hebrews and in fact is the God of the Hebrews. Jesus Christ (Yeshua Hamashiach) is a Jew. When… Read more »

Yeah, there’s a ton about Islam, it’s history and characters, I have no clue about. I’m a Christian, and never felt the need to learn about the life of Muhammad. And I promise, I’m not arguing with you, but “just thinking out loud” a bit: OK, so the Quorn requires the faithful to kill when conversion efforts fail. The Hebrew Bible requires stones be thrown at an adulterer until their skull is crushed and the brain swells to the point of death.  Leviticus (20:10-12)  The New Testament requires when we are physically assaulted, that our response is offer the assailant… Read more »

You’re right, as is your habit. The admonition to turn the other cheek pertains to insults and grievances, not to actual physical assault. Much of the problem with common interpretation of that has to do with the modern idea of what constitutes a fight. I don’t engage in physical violence when/because I’m angry. If a person will allow me to retreat otherwise unmolested and with my property I will do so. No matter how angry they might have made me. I turn the other cheek when turning the other cheek applies. If they attack me, that’s a whole ‘nother critter.… Read more »

Again, all true. I’m often appalled at the milquetoast, namby-pamby, ineffectual, weak view some who claim to be Christians have of Yeshua Hamashiach. Jesus is God the Son. He is, according to the gospel of John 1:1, The Word of God, the actual part of God that Speaks His Will into existence. He is an aspect of the Triune God who is one God in three persons. This is Christian doctrine accepted as theologically sound for millennia. Jesus said “If you have seen me, you have seen the Father”. His claim was not that He was a “special” person who… Read more »

Anyone who’s ever carried a sidearm in public knows this principle well. You can’t shoot someone for insulting you. Well, you can but you’ll go to prison and you deserve to. And here we have the central thesis of what is happening in our cities relative to gang culture. Most of the violence perpetrated by gang members falls squarely in to the “he disrespected me” category. Talk about a non-proportional response that begets another such response. For all these fake woke athletes who claim to care about young black men, the only ones I can recall that actually talked to… Read more »

I don’t mind when someone “takes the conversation in a completely different direction” because that’s what conversation is. Something someone says generates or triggers a thought that the other person in the conversation wants to express. If that were not so, conversations would be completely linear all the time. Thank goodness they’re not. That would be boring and defeat the purpose of having a conversation. As it just so happens, surprise surprise, I agree with you. Not only that but I think the Biblical conversation impacts directly on the practical situation you pointed out. If you’re a responsible human being… Read more »

Why, from a Church perspective, is this so? I have never given it much thought. The Capital C Church must have its reasons.

Yes, my Greek is terrible, too. I know some older folks who will say Jesus The Christ; which is actually closer. When I was a kid, parts of the mass was still in Latin, so I am trying to figure out exactly when Church leaders wanted to make things “easier” as I always felt like the priests very much wanted to keep a veil over things, much like Oz at times. Keeping it hazy seems more in line with my early upbringing. No wonder in my adulthood I searched for a denomination that fit me and found a Baptist church… Read more »

You are correct, I got it from Messianic Jews in Israel. As near as I can tell Messianic Judaism is the most nearly correct form of worship and faith in Yeshua Hamashiach. Those people are of The Covenant and blood of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob who have accepted the True Messiah promised to them since the days of Eden. Theirs is the culmination of millenia of a direct relationship with El Shaddai, The One True God. While my ancestors were worshipping and sacrificing to the demons Odin, Thor and the rest of the Norse Pantheon — the Hebrews were already… Read more »

Israel will “take care” of Hamas, and it is good they warned all of those in Gaza to GET OUT! Egypt is not that far away, so those in Gaza better get moving, it will soon be nothing but rubble. Jews world-wide are on constant alert. Now, I worry about this country. Under Biden, there are over 5,000,000 illegals in the US. Doing small math, 1/2 of 1%, is 25,000, and that is a good guesstimate on the number of BAD people (potential terrorists). That leaves 4,975,000 the number of GOOD illegals (wanting asylum, opportunity, etc.) Let’s cut that 1/2… Read more »

Egypt is not letting the Gazan Palestinians in. Too bad for them. They should have thought about that before launching a campaign of inhuman murder and monstrous crimes.

The resolve of the American people must necessarily harden over the next days and weeks. Nearly as horrifying (to me at least) as the attacks in Israel are the reactions I see in New York and other leftist-dominated cities. I am astonished that there are so many hate-filled Americans! I feel like the frog in the saucepan that I didn’t see how infected my beloved USA has become. I hadn’t realized my fellow American citizens could behave so abominably. God help us.
