I thought this article was enlightening. It explains completely the double standard and the hypocrisy the world and some Christians have when dealing with Israel. It is completely illogical for the world to take the stand it is. It reminds me of the scripture that says G-d would send them strong delusion. It's as if people are mad (insane) and they can't see the truth when it comes to G-d and Israel any longer. Please read the article and my comments below.

Death of the Bush Doctrine
Thursday, January 24, 2008
By: Jeff Jacoby
Boston Globe
The Bush Doctrine -- born on Sept. 20, 2001, when President Bush bluntly warned the sponsors of violent jihad: "You are either with us, or you are with the terrorists" -- is dead. Its demise was announced by Condoleezza Rice last Friday.
The secretary of state was speaking to reporters aboard Air Force One en route with the president to Kuwait from Israel. She was explaining why the administration had abandoned the most fundamental condition of its support for Palestinian statehood - namely, an end to Palestinian terror. Rice's explanation, recounted here by The Washington Times, was as striking for its candor as for its moral blindness:
"The 'road map' for peace, conceived in 2002 by Mr. Bush, had become a hindrance to the peace process, because the first requirement was that the Palestinians stop terrorist attacks. As a result, every time there was a terrorist bombing, the peace process fell apart and went back to square one. Neither side ever began discussing the 'core issues': the freezing of Israeli settlements in the West Bank, the right of Palestinian refugees to return, the outline of Israel 's border, and the future of Jerusalem.
"'The reason that we haven't really been able to move forward on the peace process for a number of years is that we were stuck in the sequentially of the road map. So you had to do the first phase of the road map before you moved on to the third phase of the road map, which was the actual negotiations of final status,' Rice said. . . . What the US-hosted November peace summit in Annapolis did was 'break that tight sequentially. . . You don't want people to get hung up on settlement activity or the fact that the Palestinians haven't fully been able to deal with the terrorist infrastructure. . .'"
Thus the president who once insisted that a "Palestinian state will never be created by terror" now insists that a Palestinian state be created regardless of terror. Once the Bush administration championed a "road map" whose first and foremost requirement was that the Palestinians "declare an unequivocal end to violence and terrorism" and shut down "all official . . . incitement against Israel ." Now the administration says that Palestinian terrorism and incitement are nothing "to get hung up on."
Whatever happened to the moral clarity that informed the president's worldview in the wake of 9/11? Whatever happened to the conviction that was at the core of the Bush Doctrine: that terrorists must be anathematized and defeated, and the fever-swamps that breed them drained and detoxified?
Bush's support for the creation of a Palestinian state was always misguided -- rarely has a society shown itself less suited for sovereignty -- but at least he made it clear that American support came at a stiff price: "The United States will not support the establishment of a Palestinian state," Bush said in his landmark June 2002 speech on the Israeli-Arab conflict, "until its leaders engage in a sustained fight against the terrorists and dismantle their infrastructure." He reinforced that condition two years later, confirming in a letter to Ariel Sharon that "the Palestinian leadership must act decisively against terror, including sustained, targeted, and effective operations to stop terrorism and dismantle terrorist capabilities and infrastructure."
Now that policy has gone by the boards, replaced by one less focused on achieving peace than on maintaining a "peace process." No doubt it *is* difficult, as Rice says, to "move forward on the peace process" when the Palestinian Authority glorifies suicide bombers and encourages a murderous yearning to eliminate the Jewish state. If the Bush Doctrine -- "with us or with the terrorists" -- were still in force, the peace process would have been shelved once the Palestinians made clear that they had no intention of rejecting violence or accepting Israel 's existence. The administration would be treating the Palestinians as pariahs, allowing them no assistance of any kind, much less movement toward statehood, so long as their encouragement of terrorism persisted.
But it is the Bush Doctrine that has been shelved. In its hunger for Arab support against Iran -- and perhaps in a quest for a historic "legacy" -- the administration has dropped "with us or with the terrorists." It is hell-bent instead on bestowing statehood upon a regime that stands unequivocally with the terrorists. "Frankly, it's time for the establishment of a Palestinian state," Rice says.

When George W. Bush succeeded Bill Clinton, he was determined not to replicate his predecessor's blunders in the Middle East, a determination that intensified after 9/11. Yet he too has succumbed to the messianism that leads US presidents to imagine they can resolve the Arab-Israeli conflict. Clinton 's legacy in this arena was the second intifada, which drenched the region in blood. To what fresh hell will Bush's diplomacy lead?

"Olmert & Bush discuss settlement dismantling"

From Bro Stef:
The Bible is clear that people who want peace must exhibit the qualities and responsibilities that justify that peace. Peace comes at a price, it's not free for the grabbing. To have peace we must live responsibly. Are the Palestinians behaving or living in a respectful and responsible manner? No they are not. There charter seeks the destruction of a peace loving free people, the Jews, and by the way that includes me. They want Jews everywhere dead. Their leader Yasser Arafat taught them well...kill enough Jews make them miserable enough and you will force the world to demand that Israel make all the concessions necessary to bring about a "false" peace. You see, the Bible teaches in the book of Daniel and elsewhere that the world will become drunk with this notion of peace at any cost and God will give it to them and that is what ultimately brings into existence the worst period in history, the Great Tribulation. Isn't it unbelievable that the U.S. would ask Israel to behave in a manner that the U.S. would never agree to, if the tables were turned. This is hypocrisy at it's highest. All of those who are part of pushing Israel into a false peace will pay a heavy price dished out to them by God Himself. This is what the book of Revelation teaches as well in Isaiah, Jeremiah, Joel, Zechariah and elsewhere in the Bible. As Christians we are obligated to pray that the God of Israel, Yeshua, will intervene in this madness and finally bring it to an end. Peace will not be achieved apart from Yeshua HaMashiach! PS. He is a Jewish God that we worship. The greatest Jew that ever lived gave of Himself for you and me. The least we can do is love and support fully - the people and the land that are the Apple of His Eye!

Benjamin Franklin once said, "Anyone who trades liberty for security deserves neither liberty nor security." Aren't we asking Israel to do exactly this? Trade their land and liberty for security? Doesn't God provide Israel the security she needs? We should be praying that Israel will sooner than later return to her God who loves her with an undying love. Let's not forget the lessons of the 1930's, when Hitler promised peace for land - we all know what happened 10 years later, WWII ensued.

Blaming Israel for the world's ills and asking them to do what any rational person or country would not do, will not bring peace and security to a 4,000 year old battle. This will take G-d to solve it. The evidence of man's pride and desire for power is summed up in the Israeli - Arab conflict. How arrogant of us to think we can solve a 4,000 year old problem without G-d's help. Instead of responding to world madness with knee jerk reactions, let's be the people God created us to be, courageous and filled with love, hope and faith in Yeshua and even more so as the days grow darker.

Psalm 2: Why do the nations rage, And the people plot a vain thing?  The kings of the earth set themselves, And the rulers take counsel together, Against the Lord and against His Anointed, saying,  "Let us break Their bonds in pieces And cast away Their cords from us."  He who sits in the heavens shall laugh; The Lord shall hold them in derision. Then He shall speak to them in His wrath, And distress them in His deep displeasure:  "Yet I have set My King On My holy hill of Zion."  "I will declare the decree: The Lord has said to Me, 'You are My Son, Today I have begotten You.  Ask of Me, and I will give You The nations for Your inheritance, And the ends of the earth for Your possession.  You shall break them with a rod of iron; You shall dash them to pieces like a potter's vessel.' "  Now therefore, be wise, O kings; Be instructed, you judges of the earth.  Serve the Lord with fear, And rejoice with trembling.  Kiss the Son,  lest He be angry, And you perish in the way, When His wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all those who put their trust in Him.

Because, in truth, because they have misled my people, saying, "Peace," when there is no peace; and because, when the people build a wall, these prophets smear whitewash on it. Say to those who smear whitewash on it that it shall fall.  (Ezekiel 13:1-16 / NRSV)
