Iran, Israel, and Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice

Since I am an unashamed zionist and antiterrorist, the policies pursued by the United States foreign relations led by the brilliant Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice are greatly disturbing me. She urges Israel to push for peace with Palestine, which is always on the terms of the terrorists, weakens Israel, and doesn't last. Now she's unofficially but publicly seeking interaction with Iran.

In the linked article, 'Doing the Bump with Iran," Diana West points out the shame involved for us to be polite to terrorists. Is this fear I hear? Or stupidity? Of course Iran is a neighbor to Iraq, and we want the area to be stable. But we want it to be terrorist free. Remember the war on terror?

"Our nation will continue to be steadfast and patient and persistent in the pursuit of two great objectives. First, we will shut down terrorist camps, disrupt terrorist plans, and bring terrorists to justice. And, second, we must prevent the terrorists and regimes who seek chemical, biological or nuclear weapons from threatening the United States and the world. (Applause.)"

"Iran aggressively pursues these weapons and exports terror, while an unelected few repress the Iranian people's hope for freedom." - President George W. Bush January 2002

Since the above State of the Union address, we have allowed radical Iranian leadership to visit our country on diplomatic missions to the United Nations, where his peaceful-sounding speech was well received. "On August 1, only a few weeks before his UN appearance, Ahmadinejad, the "man of peace," delivered a scathing attack on America to a large Tehran mob that was repeatedly punctuated by the unified chant: 'Death to America! Death to America!' " - from an article going in depth into the "evolution" of America's relationship with Iran.

I have another question. We don't recognize Iran as a legitimate government. They are not known for keeping their promises. Why should we accept their help in 'stabilizing' Iraq and the Middle East?

Finally, to address our pressure on Israel to concede to terrorists, let me say that God promised to bless those who blessed Israel. He has also divinely given and preserved Israel's land. They have a legal right to their land, some of which has already been surrendered to deceitful terrorists. We need to take a strong stand for Israel and against her enemies, including Hamas, Hezbollah in Lebanon, Syria, Iran, and the blustering pro-Palestine Arab propaganda in our own country.

Genesis 12:1-3, "Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee: And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed."

Genesis 27:29, "Let people serve thee, and nations bow down to thee: be lord over thy brethren, and let thy mother's sons bow down to thee: cursed be every one that curseth thee, and blessed be he that blesseth thee."

Exodus 23:22, "But if thou shalt indeed obey his voice, and do all that I speak; then I will be an enemy unto thine enemies, and an adversary unto thine adversaries."

Ezekiel 38:16, "And thou shalt come up against my people of Israel, as a cloud to cover the land; it shall be in the latter days, and I will bring thee against my land, that the heathen may know me, when I shall be sanctified in thee, O Gog, before their eyes."

To God be all glory.
