The bombing of the Russian airliner reflects the long conflict between Islamic extremists and Egypt that has spread south to the coastal fantasy land.21:26 25.11.15 | 0 comments
If everyone including Jews, are required to pledge allegiance to the Jewish State and, (as Britain, for example, requires of foreign residents applying for citizenship - knowledge of the nation’s history besides a pledge of allegiance), hopefully the new Israelis would be loyal citizens, understanding the rebirth of the Jewish nation, and, doubtless like thousands of other Muslim Israelis, appreciative and supportive of Israel's social and political ideals. A recent Jerusalem Post online article showed that there is a degree of Palestinian support for Israel's borders extending to the Western shores of the River Jordan - as was originally envisaged for the division of the region into Jewish and Muslim states. The problem is: Would the ultimate aim of some or many new Muslim Israelis be to eventually take over the whole of Israel and turn it into yet another Muslim nation? 99% of the Middle East comprises Muslim nations ruled by Muslims. The vast Muslim nations surrounding Israel have a total population of approximately 150 million Muslims. Tiny Israel in their midst has a population of approximately 7.5 million, comprising approximately a mere 6 million Jews and 1.5 million minorities (Muslims, Christians, Druze, etc.). Just as there are plentiful Muslim nations, and a British nation, a French nation, a German nation, an Italian nation, etc., so also the Jewish people have the same right to self-determination as a people in their Jewish nation, as do all the other nations’ peoples. In fact, Israel probably has far greater historic, legal, political, and moral legitimacy than any other nation.
