Something's Very Wrong

Israel is under attack, and it has been under attack from the minute a few Jews decided to restore a Jewish State to the Holy Land. we have been under attack since before the State of Israel was "declared," on the 5th of Iyyar, the 14th of May, 1948. Arab terrorism against Jews and Israelis is nothing new.

There is only one way to end terrorism, and it's to destroy it. For some peculiar and perverse reason, the world makes one "exception" to this rule. That's when the victims are Jews and the terrorists are Arabs.

The world doesn't connect, more correct--refuses to connect-- the terrorism against us with the terrorism in the rest of the world. For them superficial changes are enough to make the terrorists respectable. And Olmert, Livne and crew aren't about to protest. They want the world's "acceptance."

Israel's "Defense" Minister Mofaz expresses concern, while Arabs launch kassams at Israel daily and Arab terror against civilians continues. Concern and restraint aren't going to save us. Something's very wrong with a country that cares more about pleasing its enemies than protecting its citizens and securing its future.

In less than two weeks we're celebrating our 58th Independence Day, but what kind of "independence" is this?

The missing element in every human 'solution' is
an accurate definition of the creature.

The way we define 'human' determines our view
of self, others, relationships, institutions, life, and
future. Important? Only the Creator who made us
in His own image is qualified to define us accurately.
Choose wisely...there are results.

Many problems in human experience are the result of
false and inaccurate definitions of humankind premised
in man-made religions and humanistic philosophies.

Each individual human being possesses a unique, highly
developed, and sensitive perception of diversity. Thus
aware, man is endowed with a natural capability for enact-
ing internal mental and external physical selectivity.
Quantitative and qualitative choice-making thus lends
itself as the superior basis of an active intelligence.

Human is earth's Choicemaker. His title describes
his definitive and typifying characteristic. Recall
that his other features are but vehicles of experi-
ence intent on the development of perceptive
awareness and the following acts of decision and
choice. Note that the products of man cannot define
him for they are the fruit of the discerning choice-
making process and include the cognition of self,
the utility of experience, the development of value-
measuring systems and language, and the accultur-
ation of civilization.

The arts and the sciences of man, as with his habits,
customs, and traditions, are the creative harvest of
his perceptive and selective powers. Creativity, the
creative process, is a choice-making process. His
articles, constructs, and commodities, however
marvelous to behold, deserve neither awe nor idol-
atry, for man, not his contrivance, is earth's own
highest expression of the creative process.

Human is earth's Choicemaker. The sublime and
significant act of choosing is, itself, the Archimedean
fulcrum upon which man levers and redirects the
forces of cause and effect to an elected level of qual-
ity and diversity. Further, it orients him toward a
natural environmental opportunity, freedom, and
bestows earth's title, The Choicemaker, on his
singular and plural brow.

Human is earth's Choicemaker. Psalm 25:12 He is by
nature and nature's God a creature of Choice - and of
Criteria. Psalm 119:30,173 His unique and definitive
characteristic is, and of Right ought to be, the natural
foundation of his environments, institutions, and re-
spectful relations to his fellow-man. Thus, he is orien-
ted to a Freedom whose roots are in the Order of the

Let us proclaim it. Behold!
