Reflections after a Week or Two off from Posting

Reflections after a Week or Two off from Posting

After not having posted very actively for two weeks now, I feel overwhelmed at the amount of material upon which comments are richly merited.

Unfortunately, the sheer volume of news stories of note over the past ten days alone boggles the mind.

However, several main themes stand out in my mind as commanding our attention:

  • The enemy without: The Islamofascists and their Marxist fellow-travelers

  • The enemy within:  The Islamofascists, their Marxist fellow travelers (to include the odious ACLU), most members of academe, the mainstream media (MSM) and Hollywood.

  • Our broken borders and the resultant flood of illegals flooding – and changing the face of – this land.

  • The need to take a consistent stand against terrorism: This includes absolute isolation of Hamas, Hezbollah, and Iran.

  • The need to stand by Israel, as God’s Chosen People, and to advocate unflinchingly for their Divinely-bestowed right to Eretz Yisrael (The Land of Israel).

  • Our out-of-touch, venal, spineless, Dhimmified, money-loving leaders at all levels of government and the military (allowing, of course, for some exceptions).

  • The need for Christians in this country to make a serious, cogent, mature, and clear stand for the Gospel (as opposed to touchy-feely, ecological, emotional, TV-based, schmaltzy, watered-down Christianity) – even though it will bring us even greater opposition from haters of Christ than we are already experiencing.

Some of the main people/places I look to for encouragement (besides the LORD and His Word) are:

Michael Savage (radio talk-show host)

I was on hiatus from the net as well, due to a month of bodily infirmities - but I'm fighting!

As per Iraq: Isaiah 19 firmly establishes Iraq (Ashur) as "the Work of God's Hands", aligned alongside Israel and Egypt. A very timely verse that puts the war in Iraq in persepective, Biblically.

Kudos to your son returning! A shadow of things to come...

btw: you've got quite a journalistic flair that the likes of Michelle Malkin, et al would be proud of. That's why I keep visiting.
