The Conclusive Solution For Lasting Peace In The Middle East: An Attack On Israel Is An Attack On The USA

When we look at the Middle East, we see a patchwork of nations, most of them involved in some sort of active hostility toward others in the region. Syria and Israel disembowelled what is left of Lebanon to the point where Beirut, which was once known as the "Paris of the Middle East" is now an anarchic split city-state constantly at war with itself. The rise of the so called Islamic fundamentalism has created a second front within the region: no longer do Muslims only fight Jews, they now fight each other.

Prior to World War I, the Balkans were called "a powder keg" due to political conditions remarkably similar to those presently existing in the Middle East. It took the Sarajevo assassination to light the fuse which exploded that war: a massive conflagration that claimed millions of lives and ravaged Europe. Yet none of the nations involved in that conflict had anything resembling nuclear weapons. In today's Middle East arena, many of the players either have, or will shortly obtain, atomic bombs. In what has already been admitted to be a fight to the death, what could possibly restrain Iran from lobbing a nuclear warhead at Israel, or a nuclear armed Pakistani Taliban from doing the same? And what happens afterwards? Would the Arabs move against Israel? Would Israel retaliate with massive nuclear weapon exchanges? Would America get involved in this proxy fight with its own and immensely greater nuclear capabilities?

Anyone on Earth today has to wonder whether the plains of Megiddo truly will be the site for the fiery Armageddon foreseen by John in the Bible's Book Of Revelation. It most certainly seems prophetic that the location for the events which the New Testament states will trigger the end of humanity were set two millennia ago to be held right in the midst of the single greatest spark point in the modern world.

Peace in the Middle East has been elusive for decades. The creation of Israel over sixty years ago has sparked a nearly endless series of conflicts which show no signs of abating. Therefore, what can America truly do to create a lasting peace in the Middle East?

If there is a hope, it does not lie in inadequate diplomacy, brittle treaties or meaningless demonstrations. It lies in a fundamental, willful modification of policies which have failed for decades and are now being taken to new and previously unimaginable extremes by the most vehemently and savagely anti-Israeli Administration in the history of the American nation.

First of all, these outrageously unilaterally pro-Arab policies adopted by the new Administration have to be completely reversed: Peace in the Middle East cannot come by selling out Israel which is a nation which has been a stalwart ally of the United States since its founding. We have to recognize that there are countless millions of Americans who have close ties to that nation, and Israel must for all intents and purposes be considered an informal autonomous territory of the United States of America. Just like the United States Government would not sit idly by as North Korea invaded Alaska, or Cuba seized South Florida, the prospect of Arab forces moving onto Israeli soil has to be a call to action.

I have very little realistic hope of global peace in our lifetimes. I think it's an admirable ideal but I am seeing a powerful trend in the opposite direction, especially in the past few years. May our respective deities save us! :(

This is an outstanding piece of work, Hal. I think Meggido will be the scene of a massive, and perhaps final, conflict. I can't help but notice that Israel is not threatening the annihilation of the countries around it. The hate and threats all go one way. That said, I fail to see how everybody cannot be on their side. It must be Anti-Semitism, I guess. Thanks for the fine Hub.

Well stated, and Yes, we must make our position made clear. And that position should be that any attack on Israel is an attack on us. Good Hub.

James A Watkins: Thank you very much as usual I truly appreciate your comments. Yes, it is definitely not lost on me that Israel for at least 3 decades has been in a strictly defensive position and has not threatened anyone who has not threatened the security of the nation. But anti-Semitism is a keystone of world socialism / communism and we all know who is in the Red... er I mean White House right now. :(

thinking out loud: thank you and I truly believe that we should make our voices heard clearly in that the citizens of North America are not ready to aid in the destruction of the state of Israel by the misguided policies of this Administration. We have to stand up for what is right.

Maybe we'll wake up one morning and find it with a new paint job

It's already as Red as anything in Stalinist Moscow... the actual pigmentation of the paint may just be irrelevant. :(

Do you support Israel statement of its intention to build more settlements? Do you think that will be helpful in reaching a peaceful settlement guaranteeing the security of Israel? What do you think the U.S. response should be?

Settlements already answered the other time you asked it in this series. One more time: The US should protect Israel's internationally recognized borders.
