Israel's Jihad Crisis is Also the World's Jihad Crisis
Matthew 24:5-8; Revelation 13:2
5-16-21, * -- Israel is a not a war zone because of geopolitics, but because it shares a common crisis with Europe, America, Russia, China and numerous other countries, most of whom are trying to buy time for their own internal Islamic insurgencies by siding with the Jihadist insurgency inside Israel.
A sizable hostile minority within your borders is always an explosive element, but Islamic migration is unique in that it emerged and still emerges from a tribal and religious manifest destiny of world conquest.
Israel's Islamic minority is particularly hostile because unlike those of America, Europe, Russia, and China it came to the Jewish State as a conquering force and made up the 'Herrenvolk', the colonial master race, within living memory (religiously, if not ethnically under the Ottoman Empire). [..]
Israel's strategy of integrating the Arab Muslim population within randomly defined borders, convincing them to see themselves as part of the Jewish State…The fragmented Muslim populations of the world are the remnants of an aspiring empire created by centuries of conquests and invasions. Islam convinces them to see themselves as part of that Ummah, a civilizational empire that is meant to encompass the world. Muslim terrorism kills more Muslims than non-Muslims do. Islamic manifest destiny has traditionally destroyed Muslim societies comprehensively. [..]
However, the Jewish State isn't suffering from an Islamic insurgency because it wanted to operate on a global scale, but because foreign invading powers, most notably the Syrian-Greeks and the Romans, imposed their dominion using Arab mercenaries. ..The Islamic conquests failed to assemble any kind of global utopian empire. They did however destroy countless peoples, eliminate many cultures, and create broken mirror images of the original Mohammedan Jihad with little emirates ruled by little Mohammeds. And they killed countless millions and ushered in a thousand years of tyranny and terror.
The fall of the Ottoman Empire [mainly today’s Turkey] revived Jewish hopes for reclaiming their homeland, but the Zionists had not counted on the endurance of that original war imperative or on the weakness of civilization. And so the conflict continues in Israel and around the world; the conflict has been particularly sharp in Israel because where Muslims are a minority in other nations, they are a regional majority. And because of the strategic importance of the region, half the world has made it its business to intervene… The Nazis shaped the Muslim Brotherhood and the Soviet Union shaped the PLO with their strategies, tactics, and organizations, so that Israel is fighting both the Communists and the Nazis in its own territory. ..So the campaign against Israel gets plenty of support from the Left as does Islamic terror in general.[..]
Thanks to Pres Trump, the Jewish State adroitly managed to form a temporary alliance through the Abraham Accords with some regional traditional Islamic Sunni powers that have become alarmed at the threat of both of Islamic Shiite Iran and Islamist transnational ideological groups like the Muslim Brotherhood. Combine that with the fall of America’s Trump administration and the rise of a pro-Iran and a pro-Brotherhood Biden regime and the current conflict was inevitable.
Iran, Qatar, and various other Islamic players have not been investing a fortune in the terrorist group Hamas and other groups just to have them sit on the money. After a certain number of years they start a war to test Israel's defenses, military and diplomatic, leading to chaos, carnage, and a pressure for more concessions. This time is no different. [..]
Modern Islamic governments pursue utopian socialist schemes using a corrupt ruling class, much like the Communists and the Nazis, resulting in corruption, economic disaster, and external conflict. ... Israel hasn't figured out how to resolve the problem; neither has anyone else in the world. There may be no answer. The world is facing a 7th century crisis and trying to deal with it through 21st century means. …Neither the modern nor postmodern
Israel’s Prime Minister Netanyahu, like other conservative leaders, has appeared modern while eschewing modernity's preference for pat solutions and postmodernity's apologies and appeasement. And so Israel has been living in a premodern moment, adapting rapidly to circumstances as it has in some ways throughout its modern existence. But that's just a survival strategy and not a healthy one.
Israelis are always in crisis mode and they take one crisis at a time and what ought to be a shambles somehow turn around. Yet Israel persists. …Israel has fought an almost impossible war bravely, gallantly, jumping from one innovation to another and then being miraculously rescued with familiar certainty that neither it nor the Jewish people could exist without G-d Who intervenes invisibly at crucial moments.
The world nations must recognize that they/we all share a common problem and after generations of 'bargaining' with the Islamist’s ‘Jihad,’ that we're all facing the same war that across cultures, and even political affiliations, the West and the East, Right and Left we may be enemies, but we also share a common enemy - one whose assault civilization may not survive.
We can either unite against the Islamic Ummah, that embryonic empire of Sharia and Jihad, whose boundaries are those of the world, or we can cut our separate deals with its separate parts, which will all fail. And then we will fail and fall with them.
