IS OIL MORE IMPORTANT THAN ISRAEL?
Israel is certainly a dominant focus of world news every day. The Israeli-Arab conflict continues to flare, and the American media are on the spot, along with the rest of the world media. So with the eyes of the whole world daily focused on Israel, why is Israel seemingly not important to America anymore, at least to the Obama Administration? How can those in the White House talk about Iraq and Iran and Al Qaeda, and say nothing about the unrelenting violence of the Palestinian Arab and Muslim terrorists?
Israel is undoubtedly America's only loyal and faithful ally in the Middle East. Is this very special alliance not important to the President? It sure seems so and I have to wonder why.
With Iran's President Ahmadinejad calling virtually every week for Israel to be "wiped off the face of the map" and seriously threatening nuclear destruction for Israel as well as for the U.S., how can the White House ignore this grave existential threat to Israel? This is puzzling and troubling.
To tell the truth, I think I know the reason why. The Arab oil and economic clubs are wavering over America's head like a guillotine. "Oil is the salvation of America," one American official once declared. Of course, he was inferring that oil is more important to America than Israel. However, the vast majority of us Christians, and there are millions of us, do not fully agree with that perspective. We would like to see and hear Mr. Obama come out with strong statements of support and assistance for Israel in recognition and reciprocation for the invaluable friendship, support and help that Israel faithfully provides for America.
