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.
Iran's current president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, has boldly and loudly proclaimed to Israel and to all the world that he thinks the Jewish people are children of pigs, that they are a cancer on the world that needs to be removed, and that their Jewish nation of Israel must be "wiped off the face of the map." It sounds more than a little like the book of Esther is being re-written and the hateful Persian danger has risen again. It so happens that, very much like the hateful Persian leader Haman 2500 years ago, another hateful Persian leader has arisen today who is again threatening to destroy the Jewish people. Although the name of God is not mentioned in the pages of the book of Esther, the mind and hand of God are there - unmistakably clear.
