Arutz Sheva: “The Middle East after the Defeat of Islamic State” read a headline above an article published last week dealing with the supposed demise of the barbaric Jihadist organization.
“Islamic State isn’t revived” the author claimed before explaining that the “enduring collapse of the Islamic State is a step forward,” but will not cure the Middle East’s troubles.
Apparently the article influenced US President Donald Trump, who last week suddenly announced he would pull out US Special Forces from Syria “very soon”.
“We’re knocking the hell out of ISIS. We’ll be coming out of Syria, like, very soon,” Trump announced in Ohio.
His words raised eyebrows in CENTCOM the U.S. central command in the Middle East and contradicted the recently announced new US policy toward Syria which focused on clearing out the last Islamic State hubs and blocking Iranian imperialistic moves in the war-torn country. more …
Opinion: ISIS may have been diminished but like al Qaeda, the ideology that creates terror groups has been in existence for 3500 years.
It began with disobedience. Both Ishmael and Esau took wives and concubines from tribes that were hostile to the family of Abraham. The title deed to the same land, Israel, and the same city, Jerusalem, is still being fought over today.
Leviticus 17:11: “The life is in the blood …”
To not see the connection of the origin of the hatred is to perpetuate and condone the behavior of the descendants of the two men Ishmael and Esau. Later in the 6th century BC, Ezra 9:1-2 records that the practice of intermarriage between the Jews returning from Babylon and surrounding Gentile tribes continued.
At the time of Jesus there were so many Edomites in Judea that the Romans called the area Idumea, and it is no small coincidence that Judea (West Bank) is the headquarters of the Palestinians of today.
According to figures from the Metropolitan Police, first obtained by The Sunday Times and then by the BBC, a spike in knife crime in February led to a total of 15 people murdered in London. That’s compared to 14 in New York in February.
What you won’t hear from the Sunday Times or the BBC is that London’s knife crimes sound suspiciously like the knife intifada that began in the West Bank in 2015 when charts were made by Palestinian leaders for stabbing Jewish citizens with the deadliest results.
It is not surprising then that Amalek, the first Biblically recorded terrorist, liked to draw Israelite blood using a knife as he cursed the God of the universe.
The Legend of the Jews, volume 1, Rabbi Louis Ginzberg:
“not only did Amalek kill
them, but he also mutilated their corpses, following
the example of his grandsire Esau, by cutting off a
certain part of the body, and throwing it toward
heaven with the mocking words, “Here shalt Thou
have what Thou desirest.” In this way did he jeer at
the token of the Abrahamic Covenant.”
ISIS, al Qaeda, Hamas or Hezbollah, the names change but the blood feud will go on until the end Isaiah 63:1-3.
