You are right on target here Caroline Glick! It is tragic that there are so many opportunities for real peace but the Palestinians continue to pass them by. How can you negotiate for peace with an entity sworn to your destruction. There can only be duplicity until some real statesmen arise to lead Palestinians out of the darkness of hate and murder. As a Christian Zionist, I stand with Israel.

I consider myself a "Christian Zionist": a Christian that believes that Old Testament/Torah prophecies must be fulfilled. That as Jeremiah and others prophesied: "Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that they shalll no more say, The LORD liveth, which brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt; but, The LORD liveth, which brought up and which led th seed of the house of Israel out of the north country, and from all countries whither I had driven them; and they shall dwell in their own land."

I am a Latter-day Saint (Mormon) and as such, I believe I am part of the reclaimed "seed of Israel" (by prophecy, a member of the House of Ephraim), and for that reason, also, hold to Isiah 11:10-14.

Isaiah 11:10-14 "And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious. And it shall come to pass that the LORD shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea. And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth. The envy also of Ephraim shall depart, and the adversaries of Judah shall be cut off: Ephraim shall not envy Judah, (cont

) and Judah shall not vex Ephraim. But they shall fly upon the shoulders of the Philistines toward th west; they shall spoil them of the east together: they shall lay their hand upon Edom and Moab; and the children of Ammon shall obey them."

You can learn a lot about a nation's health by watching how it celebrates its national holidays. In Israel's case, compare how we celebrated our 50th Independence Day in 1998 to what celebrations involve today.

During the 1990s, Israel's elite took a vacation from reality and history and they brought much of the public with them.

Then-foreign minister Shimon Peres said that history was overrated. The so-called "New Historians," who rummaged through David Ben-Gurion's closet looking for skeletons, were the toast of the academic world. Radicals like Yossi Beilin, Shulamit Aloni and Avrum Burg were dictating government policy.
