The Pope's visit to Israel has been full of controversy, but if nothing else, it has underscored the deep rooted disdain for Israel among the Islamic people and Arab nations. In an effort to bring everybody into the same room and open up some "interfaith" dialogue to find common ground, the Pope exposed the truth. You see, the Chief Islamic Judge of the Palestinian Authority - representing the lesser of the two terrorist groups that wish to establish a Palestinian state on Israeli land, the other being Iranian-backed Hamas - Sheikh Tayseer Rajab Tamimi urged Muslims and Christians to "unite together against the murderous Israelis." This is the real sentiment behind a Palestinian state.
Moreover, one has to match up the comments of late to find the common thread between them all. Sunday, King Abdullah of Jordan in an interview with the London Times said,
"If the only player in this equation between the West, the Arabs and the Muslims that is not being helpful and is against peace is Israel, then let's call it for what it is. Let Israel understand that the world sees Israeli policy for what it is." Abdullah also said, "The Americans see this as we do and I think the Europeans. Britain is playing a very vital pro-active role, more than I have ever seen in the ten years of my experience in bringing people together."In recent years, the Islamists have not been so bold as to include "Americans" and "Christians" in their rhetoric against Israel. But in just the past few days, as the meeting at the White House with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu draws closer, Islamists around the world are so emboldened that they are calling Americans and Christians to unite against Israel. They are so emboldened because the man who occupies the Oval Office (OOO) has made several conciliatory and apologetic remarks to Islamic nations, even to the point of saying that America is not a Christian nation. The Islamists are emboldened because the White House has said that its position on Iranian nuclear weapons is related to Israel's acceptance of a Palestinian state carved out of traditional Jewish lands.
But it goes even further than that. This White House has essentially broken the longstanding secrecy over Israel's nuclear weapons. It has snubbed the visits of Israeli officials. It has made clear that Israel is not a special ally to the US, and so on. Islam is so emboldened against Israel because OOO is sympathetic to Islam, and because of his heritage, Islam believes one of their own rules over America. In Jeremiah 51:14 the Lord passes judgment on a nation with similar traits as today's America by saying,
"Surely, I will fill thee with men, as with locusts; and they shall raise a battle cry against you."Could it be that the locusts are devouring the White House?
