Israeli Spy Runs Into Iran

From Iraq!

If there is one thing to expect from Israel, it’s the unexpected. None of the hijackers of Air France Flight 139 expected Israel to liberate their hostages in Entebbe, in July of 1976. Saddam Hussein never expected Israel to attack and demolish the Osirak reactor, in June of 1981.

Even better, no one expected Israel to last 64 years and prosper in the face of such fantastic opposition.

The big question on my mind is what absolutely incredible feat of legerdemain will Israel pull off next?

Could we see the end of Iran’s nuclear weapons program this Fall? Next year?

Grateful for Israel

They should be, but they won’t, which is too bad.

You see, millions of Arabs owe their lives to Israel. And, I don’t mean the State of Israel – although many Arabs owe much to the Jewish State. No, I’m talking about a different Israel.

Israel Kligler.

I wrote about him on Friday, but over the weekend I realized that one specific group was directly impacted by his work – Palestinians.

Israel Kligler

Forget Herzl. Forget Ben Gurion.

The other great Zionists?

Forget them too.

None of them can hold a candle to Israel Kligler. Without Kligler there would be no Israel.

He defeated the biggest enemy that Israel ever faced, and he did it quietly, in the background. But, even though he never sought fame or recognition for his work, it is still a travesty that few know of his vital role in the creation and survival of Israel.

What enemy was he responsible for defeating?

The mosquito.

A body of lies has become accepted truth in the world, and that ‘accepted truth’ is being used to bludgeon Israel – with the hope of eventually destroying her. And the willing cooperation by so many to perpetuate these bold lies continues to shock even myself. How can educated individuals knowingly brandish outright falsehoods and still believe themselves to be people worthy of respect?

It defies logic. It truly does.

The lies that am referring to claim that Israel is culpable in the origin and suffering of the Palestinian refugees – when the truth originates in precisely the opposite direction. The Arabs are the source of the refugee problem, just as they are the source of their suffering as well.

If you are like me, you have a version of the One Year Bible and are reading it every day.

If you ARE NOT reading the One Year Bible (or something like it) every day… if you are a Christian… or even Jewish… There’s something wrong. This world has become a crazy, evil place, and your soul doesn’t have a hope unless you are getting regular booster shots of moral fiber. This world will roll you under without maximum strength help – help that will really only reach you through the bible.
