It will work no better there than in Iran, Egypt, Iraq, or Afghanistan. History tells us that Muslim nations have never long remained democracies. But history also teaches us that man learns nothing from history.

Finally, the World Council of Churches recently issued a statement condemning Israel. The WCC authoritatively pronounced Jerusalem “an occupied city with a government which has adopted discriminatory policies against Christians and Muslims alike.”

The WCC also says that “Christian Zionism distort[s] the interpretation of the Word of God and the historic connection of Palestinians — Christians and Muslims — to the Holy Land….” I’m not sure where the WCC gets its information, but I can tell you two things: when they complain about Christian Zionists’ wrong interpretation of the Bible, they have to mean that we take the Bible as literally true and authoritative — while they do not.

Second, when they seek justification by referring to “Palestinian Christians” more than once, they’re being disingenuous. The truth is that Christians are a very small minority in the Palestinian areas and they are often persecuted by the Palestinians. But in Israel, Christians are accepted and respected. And it’s infinitely better to be a Muslim in Israel than a Jew or Christian in any Arab or Muslim country.

And the WCC laughably refers to “the historic connection of Palestinians… to the Holy Land….” The Palestinians, as a people, have only existed for a few decades (invented by Yasser Arafat and his cronies) while Israel’s historic connection to the land must be measured in millennia.

When these phony Christians condemn the “intolerance” of the most tolerant, open, and accepting society in the Middle East, they reveal more about themselves than about Israel.

Israel fights every day to survive. Remember how you felt when you first heard about the bombings at the Boston Marathon? Three died. That feeling is a regular part of Israeli life. From 2001 to 2006, there were 441 terrorist attacks that claimed 1,161 Israeli lives and injured more than 8,600 others.

The World Council of Churches says the way to peace is for Israel to withdraw to its “1967 borders.” But the terrorists and the Palestinians say this won’t satisfy them. They won’t be satisfied until Israel is annihilated from the face of the earth. For radical Muslim leaders (are there any others?), the problem is not what Israel does, it’s that Israel exists.

The Bible is very specific about what will happen to those who mistreat or abuse His people. Whether you are a Muslim who hates Israel or a Christian who has so allegorized the Word of God that you think you can be against Israel and get away with it, you will not. God keeps His word. Don’t think He’ll not keep it now.

I pray that you’ll have a happy Fourth of July. Take a few moments to express your gratitude to God for the blessings of this wonderful country. We are, without doubt, the most blessed people on earth. Take time, too, to make certain the young ones in your family hear the story of our founding and understand how truly privileged we are.

God bless the United States of America.

I mean, really, folks.

If George Bush or John McCain or Mitt Romney had threatened Syria not to cross a red line and then after they did said "I didn't say it! Congress and the world said it!", conservatives would have wanted to hide in shame.

But you libs aren't even embarrassed just a little?

Al Sharpton has done more damage to the black cause than [segregationist Alabama Gov.] George Wallace. He has suffocated the decent black leaders in New York, he says.His transparent venal blackmail and extortion schemes taint all black leadership.

Agree. The media is corrupt. Dan Rather was forced to leave, but now the media has completely become corrupt. 2nd debate, Candy Crowley. Brazen liars now.
