Islam - A Part of America's Story? PDF Print E-mail

When newly elected U.S. President Barack Obama made his Moslem appeasing speech in Cairo last year, he claimed that "Islam has always been a part of America's story."

I thought it would be reasonable to check out America's story and look for that "part" that Islam has "always" played in our country's history.

"Always" would have to start back when the Pilgrims came by ship to these shores. All the historical reports tell us that the Pilgrrims were Christians seeking a place for freedom of worship. I don't recall that any of them were worshipping Allah. And were there Moslems among the people who welcomed the Pilgrims and helped them celebrate the first Thanksgiving Day? I think they were alll native Americans.

The United States, the United Nations, the European Union, and virtually the entire world are pressuring Israel for a "Two State Solution" to the Israeli-Palestinian Arab conflict. But former Israeli MK and Minister of Tourism, Binyamin "Benny" Elon, contends that what they are really calling for is not a "Two State Solution," but rather a "Three State Solution." His opinions are printed in a book entitled, "God's Covenant with Israel."

Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu surprised the world recently by announcing his government's willingness to allow a Palestinian state to exist alongside Israel. But not surprisingly he attached several conditions to his offer. And not surprisingly, the Palestinians quickly and totally rejected them all.

The conditions include recognizing Israel as a Jewish state, Jerusalem's remaining the undivided capital of Israel, the disarming and dismantling of the Palestinian terrorist groups, the demilitarization of a new Palestinian state, the retaining of the Jewish so-called "settlements," and the dis-allowing of Arab so-called "refugees" to return and reside in the Jewish state.
