This is the Weblog of Mike from FreeRepublic.com, the head of the Christian Supporters of Israel list there. Just another rower down in the hold of the juggernaut which is the American Evangelical Christian support of Israel.

The Jews of Gush Katif

As the summer approaches and the deadline for the evacuation of the Jews from Gush Katif comes closer, the opposition to this ill-conceived plan continues to grow, especially from among the Evangelical Christian community in America. The Islamist influence in the territories continues to incite the Arab masses against the Jews of Israel, calling this "a victory" against the "occupiers" and strengthening the enemies of the Jewish people over-all. A new terrorist sponsering state in the Middle East, and especially within the borders of Israel, only bodes evil in the months ahead.

Protest against the pull-out in New York, in behalf of the Jews of Gush Katif It is heartening to also see the Jews in America also standing up in opposition to this scenario. The one positive in all this is that the Jews of Gush Katif, in facing this travesty as they are forced from their homes and the Gaza strip is rendered Judenfrein, is further awakening the Jewish people to their heritage and history, which will only strengthen the rebuilding of the House of Israel—and further root out the moral weakness in the Nation of Israel which has spawned this tragedy under pressure from a sullen and Jew-hating world.

I've said it before, I like Bush and I support him. He and Rumsfeld kicking Islamist butt up and down the international block was long overdue and Bush alone had the strength of character to initiate such an audacious plan for the Middle East.

Unfortunately, he is exhibiting some impatience, in light of current cultural and political conditions, and about to shoot himself in the foot with the "disengagement" plan and kowtowing to the Islamist forces in Palestinian Arab culture, and this is truly tragic, especially for the Jews who will be shouldering the misery of this impending wound on the heart of Israel. It will only hurt our own war efforts as well as we stand against global radical Islam.

May G-d watch over and protect these brave people in the months ahead, and stand up on their behalf as they stand for Him.

These are some videos made in Israel. I downloaded the first one, which was a long one. If you have high-speed access, they should play fine:

PA Sermon: Extermination of Jews and Subjugation of Christians - Goal of History

This from Palestinian Media Watch and posted at Free Republic.

Excerpt:"We [Muslims] have ruled the world [in the past] and a day will come, by Allah, and we shall rule the world [again]. The day will come and we shall rule America, Britain, we shall rule the entire world, except the Jews. The Jews will not live under our rule agreeably permanently, since they have been treacherous in nature throughout history. A day will come when all shall rest from the Jews, even the tree and the stone, which have suffered from them. Listen to your Beloved [Muhammad], who tells you about the most dire end awaiting the Jews. The tree and the stone want the Muslim to bring every Jew to his end. You all know the Hadith." [PA TV, May 13, 2005] "

And people wonder why we aren't all gung-ho over the Bush/Sharon Disengagement plan. Hate like this cannot be reasoned with or compromised with. If the Disengagement Plan goes through, the "Palestinian" Arabs will smell blood in the water. Take hate-filled rhetoric like this to its inevitable conclusion.

Senator from Kansas Offers Israel a Helping Hand

Sen. Sam Brownback of Kansas wants to help the people of Israel and the international Jewish community, and indirectly, all Americans, as the author of Senate Joint Resolution 14, a remarkable piece of legislation known as the “Jerusalem Resolution.” Posted here at Free Republic.

The bill’s beauty is in its simplicity and common sense. It calls for “the recognition of Jerusalem as the undivided capital of Israel before the United States recognizes a Palestinian state.”

Will it pass? Not unless some serious pressure is put on the Senate, even with a Republican majority.
