Dangers on Multiple Fronts

I've been debating on writing "Dangers to Israel..."  or "Dangers to World Peace..." as my title here.

It should be "Dangers to World Peace," because if Israel is in danger so is the rest of the "free world."  The biggest mistake international leaders, thinkers etc make is thinking that they wouldn't be affected if Israel was G-d forbid wiped off the map.  This tiny country in the midst of the volatile, have you read about the slaughter in Syria for example? Middle East is the key to the world's stability.

The terrorists in Syria have recently received a boost by the West, arranging for them a political front in Doha, Qatar to act as the reasonable “face” for their armed terrorism, portraying the premeditated destabilization by foreign terrorists as an indigenous struggle for “freedom and democracy.” Already, even that front has suffered setbacks, as its newly US-Qatari appointed leader, Moaz al-Khatib, has been revealed as not only involved with Western oil corporations, but also has declared on Al Jazeera his intentions of establishing an “Islamic state.”

The rapidly developing nuclear weapons industry in Iran is not to destroy Israel, it's to destroy the United States and its allies. Iran May Be Close to a Plutonium Bomb, German Defense Experts Warn 
It would take only three or four months to convert the plutonium from the Bushehr reactor’s spent fuel rods into weapons-grade plutonium, the authors report. Depending on how long the fuel rods were used before Iran removed them on Oct. 22, they would yield between 150 kg and 300 kg of plutonium, or enough fissile material for 25 to 50 bombs.
Western negotiators previously ignored the Bushehr reactor, on the grounds that it constituted peaceful use of energy. Oliver Thränert, head of the Center for Security Studies at ETH Zurich, told Die Welt, “If Iran does not give a convincing explanation for the early removal of fuel rods, a correction in this policy should be urgently considered.”
So, Obama and crew shouldn't be claiming that it's for Israel to clean up.  Israel is so tiny that it would be a waste of an expensive nuclear bomb to use it on Israel.  Jordan, Syria and Lebanon would also suffer, besides all of the Arabs in Israel.  Iran has much bigger game in its sights.

A more serious and immediate danger is the recognition of the Arab terrorists as a "State of Palestine."  Consider what the Gazan Government has been doing with the money the world, diplomats and NGO's keep on shtupping it, claiming "humanitarian needs."
The destructive role of these NGOs and state funders was highlighted by Rafi Schutz, from Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs. According to the Jerusalem Post, Schutz filed a protest with the UK, Denmark, Ireland and the EU. Schutz reportedly noted that some of the NGOs “such as the Irish Trocaire, were involved in the boycott and divestment movement against Israel.” Other NGOs that did not support the BDS-based labeling were excluded from EU discussions.
Professor David M. Weinberg's article in Israel Hayom discusses the diplomatic status of the Arab terrorists' quest for recognition of a "Palestinian" state.

I highly recommend reading Ruthie Blum's interview in NRO National Review Online.  As regular readers of this blog know, I'm a fan of Ruthie Blum and consider he one of the best political analysts writing today.
Winter is “fast approaching” in the Arab world, Ruthie Blum warns.
One U.S. president “enabled the rise of and spread of a pernicious form of radicalism that threatens the globe to this day.” That president was Jimmy Carter, who “opened the door to this radicalism in Iran three decades ago.” But it is our current president, she contends, whose “policies are laying out the welcome mat for it to flourish in the rest of the Middle East today.” Blum talks with National Review Online’s Kathryn Jean Lopez about her new book To Hell in a Handbasket: Carter, Obama, and the “Arab Spring” — and about the Mideast’s past, present, and future.

I hope the movers and shakers of today's world wisen up quickly!

10, I don't go for overconfidence. If the Jewish People make too many mistakes, G-d won't protect us.

thank you for that eye opening article. The centrifuges must be a distraction while they secretly make plutonium, much favored fuel for nuclear weapon. My husband has been saying this all along. I have many friends telling me all the time to make aliyah and get out of the US fast. I feel that something is stirring, and actually feel we would be safer in Israel Shalom

What worries me is that we know they value death, not life. We know that they do not care about their brother Muslims, who are the "wrong" sort any way. They don't care about their religious sites, else why fire rockets at Jerusalem.
We are told how we Jews should behave, do, just BE.......and many of us disregard, or think we are clever.
In the First World War they had the phrase....the men were lions led by donkeys. Is this true of Israel now?

thank you, deborah, I do feel safest in Israel.
Sandra, good point. We value life and they value death.
