The Day of the Erev Rav...

From Chardal blog:

Formula to fight a war and win it, too:

The way to end the current mess is to recognize, as doresh does, that all "good" (i.e. religious) Muslims hate Israel and want to destroy it, as they and their leaders have been saying very publicly. - MORE>>
I totally agree with Raglei Mevaser in this excellent post on Chardal. Israel has allowed the nations to impose a false morality as the standard for its conduct, rather than to rely on Torah as the standard. Remember, too, the Erev Rav and the golden calf.

The scheming going on right now behind the scenes is a wonder to behold. From DEBKA comes this:

Bush administration acts fast to bring France aboard the Lebanon multinational force, gives Israel tacit go-ahead for air strikes against arms trucks from Syria... - MORE>>

Why would Israel need such approval from the U.S.? Such a move would be entirely defensive on Israel's part. I suppose I should have said "a wonder NOT to behold," as the only thing obvious here is that the public will never know the whole truth about why the war was stopped. All we have gotten through the whole mess is disinformation from every source! I find it hard to believe that even Olmert would have preferred this ending, as it is sure to cost him politically and endanger his 'disengagement' plans. It just does not make sense. The U.S. had to bring big time pressure to bear. It's the only thing that makes sense.

The Israel-Hizballah war threatened a pan-Islamic uprising across the Middle East, and seriously threatened to cause big problems for the U.S. in Iraq, and oil could quickly become a weapon against the West. All in all, not good for the U.S. midterm election.

But the main reason the brakes were put on, I believe, is that the U.S. just does not have the troops and resources to fight a wider war right now. This is why Iran is so emboldened, as they know the U.S. is divided politically, stretched thin militarily, and the price of oil could play havoc with the world economy if it gets any higher. So Iran is threatening to use oil as a weapon, and fully intends to defy the UN on its nuclear program. Iran is now basically in control of Lebanon, and has stirred up the Shiites of Iraq against the U.S.

Now we are seeing a multi-national UN force shaping up that will draw its troops from Moslem nations like Turkey, Indonesia, and Malaysia. Turkey has already stated that its troops will not remain neutral in Lebanon, and France is waffling all over the place about its committment.

In short, I don't see how it can get much worse for Israel. About the only hope is that Olmert and Kadima will come crashing down, and some real leaders will take their place who will tell the U.S. and the "international community" to take a hike, and then clean house in Lebanon. I am not optimistic.

A war with Iran would quickly become a war with the entire Islamic world, and the price of oil would go ballistic along with the missiles! The Europeans would NOT help us and would likely undermine us at every opportunity. Russia and China would also make the most of the opportunity, as would North Korea and every other rougue regime that hates the U.S. and Israel.

It's a bleak picture, and yet I believe it is a war we cannot avoid and that it will come any way. So I say better now than later, as the enemy isn't getting any weaker with time. Right now, we could win such a war. It might take nukes to do it, or maybe not, but we could win. I'm not so sure about five years down the line.

So why don't we just go ahead and get it over with? Well, the only thing I can figure is that George Bush really believes all that business about Islam being a "religion of peace," and really believes he can transform the Middle East "on the cheap." He believes in Bush 41's vision of a prosperous and peaceful "new world order." And he believes the Moslems will buy into it once they have a taste of democracy, and Western style freedom and prosperity.

He is wrong. The Islamic terrorists are not a minority who have hijacked Islam, as Bush keeps telling everyone. The Islamic terrorists are practicing fundamental Islam, and they want no part of Western civilization. They want a world under Islam and Islamic law. They want a world without Jews and Christians, or any other competing systems of religion or secular philosophy. And they are the majority of Moslems. It's the so-called "moderates" who are the minority.

Western civilization, on the other hand, is caught up in a dowward spiral of self-doubt and self-hatred, of rot and moral corruption from within, and is behaving downright suicidal. Most people in the West are not even willing to defend it anymore if its too much trouble and disrupts their decadent lifestyle. They believe all cultures and religions are of equal worth, and all morals are relative, so what's there to defend?

I am seeing a lot of "rumble" about people wishing Netenyahu would take over.

What would he do differently at this point?

I believe you are correct in that Bush only has Iraq on his mind. He has lost vision of everything else with the exception of his "personal" success in Iraq.

How can he support a Shiite government in Iraq (who supports Hezzbullah) and support Israel at the same time?
