Once upon a time in the east, mid-east that is, in the aftermath of the break up of the Ottoman Empire, a small nation was established.
Some might say that it was an artificial country even though it was designed to be the home state of an ancient non-Muslim people.
This little country was considered by many to a beacon or pied-a-tierre of western civilization on the shores of the eastern Mediterranean.
But Muslim Arabs had other plans.
Slowly, over many years, through, pressure, forced accommodation, Palestinian infiltration, murder, terror and other mayhem, Muslims made life practically unbearable for the non-Muslims for whom this nation was meant to be a haven.
Eventually it came to pass that the country was no longer recognizable as what it was meant to be and became just another brutal, repressive Islamist rogue state.
This is not a dire prediction of what will happen to Israel if it keeps making concessions to Arabs and others who wish it no good fortune,God forbid, even though it might sound like it.
This is not a prediction because it relates to events that have already happened.
This is not a prediction but rather a lesson.
This is not about what can happen to Israel but rather what has already happened to Lebanon.
Since the time of Jesus, Christians have lived in the area of Mount Lebanon. It was meant to be a Christian country just as Israel was meant to be a Jewish state.
Yet as you read this, the country of Lebanon is about to be dismantled and over run as were Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia seventy years ago.
This haven for Christians is being turned into a prison and graveyard for them, as it’s transformed into an aggressive Iranian satellite poised to kill within it’s own borders and without.
And the world is silent.
The silence of the American government and this administration is especially deafening.
I guess there is no reason to defend the persecuted if a finger can’t be pointed at the Jews.
But there will be time enough for that once the Christians are out of the way and Israel is forced to defend itself.
Remember what happened in 2006.
