Egypt

The West is Apathetic Toward Radical Islam

HD Commentary by Earl Cox

 

This Generation’s Battle

Exodus 17 tells how Amalekites, descendants of Esau’s grandson, attacked the children of Israel in the desert of Sinai during their exodus from Egypt. This unprovoked attack was especially serious and the Israelites battled all day, only achieving victory at nightfall.

In response to this demonstration of cruelty, the Lord told Moses that he would blot out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven. Moses later recounted: “the Lord will have war with Amalek from generation to generation” (Exodus 17:16). Amalek’s attack on the children of Israel was now a perpetual war between him and the God of Israel.

Kerry and the “Merry-go-Round” of History

Rewarding Terrorists with U.S. Tax Dollars

Anyone paying the slightest attention is shaking their heads in disbelief over developments between two Middle East neighbors, the Israelis and Palestinians. The circumstances become more worrisome with a third party halfway around the world meddling in their affairs, the United States.   Will President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry act according to U. S. law or defy it? 

Distractions Take Pressure off Iran

Israel appears to be between the proverbial rock and hard place. Unfortunately, Israel does not live in a friendly neighborhood.  A half million hostile Arab neighbors surround Israel.  Syria poses a dire threat.  More importantly, recent frightening images from Syria have shown men, women and children writhing with seizures and pain caused by Assad attacking his own with chemical weapons.   If Assad would kill his own people, what’s to keep him from attacking Israel to obtain the Golan Heights as a key strategic position?

Blessed Be the Ties that Bind

A study of true American history will enlightened the reader to a direct correlation to Israel based on what America’s Founding Fathers faced when fleeing the tyranny of King George III as they sought a new life in what would become these “United States of America.”

Obama’s Silence on Israel’s Plight Questioned by Romney

For those who watched the third and final Presidential debate one thing was certain, President Obama made a 360 degree turn when asked if he would stand with Israel if she had to go to war with Iran to stop their nuclear proliferation.  Until the debate, which focused on foreign policy, Mr. Obama has been silent on standing with Israel virtually ignoring Iran’s threat to wipe Israel off the face of the planet. When asked by his opponent, Mitt Romney, why he visited virtually every Middle East country but bypassed Israel, Obama regressed all the way back to before taking office and simple stated he had visited Israel and even Sderot, an Israeli town next to Gaza. Romney quickly seized the moment and stated that if Israel is forced into war, as President of the United States he (Mitt Romney) would stand solidly beside Israel.  Shortly there after Obama followed suit despite being silent for over four years.

MilesTones-Looking Over The Shoulder

The website, www.revaustinmiles.com has grown considerabley with heavy traffic. News editors are picking up and publishing many of the breaking stories here, which they are free to do. The story, “Incredible Veteran’s Day Parade in Antioch,” really hit a responsive chord. It was published all over the world, including the newspaper, U.S.A. Today. The Great Chicken Trial of Brentwood (along with the follow-up stories) was listed in the top stories of 2010 by The Press in Brentwood. Editor Rick Lemyre makes it clear that this doesn’t mean most “important” but most ‘interesting and unusual,” which MilesTones is all about.

Tom Barnridge in his column in The Contra Costa Times (1/2/11) called the event of the famous chickens, Henny and Penny;  “Our favorite controversy” (of 2010). He even mentioned the cranky neighbor who complained that the “chickens poop 1000 times a day!” (which is a lot of .....ah forget it!)  prompting Mr. Bandridge to ask, “We wonder who did the counting?” Yep, that would take a lot of backyard surveilance. Anyway,  Henny and Penny were pleased by Mr. Barnridge’s mention.
