Obama has done more to delegitimise Israel than any president in American history



Ever since the modern state of Israel was established in 1948, neighbouring Arab forces have been trying to delegitimise, destroy and ethnically cleanse the land of Jews. Successive Arab governments have spawned terrorist organisations to carry out attacks inside Israel in the hope of terrorising Israel into acceptance of ‘Palestinian Arab nationhood’, despite a Palestinian state not being an original political objective of the Arab League. The pursuit of an Arab socialist Caliphate has never been contingent on ‘Palestine’, and the successive peace treaties of Jordan and Egypt were not predicated on its foundation.

But the United State of America, hand-in-hand with the European Union, is intent on establishing the State of Palestine, and has gifted billions of dollars to terrorist regimes whose sole objective is the destruction of Israel. When Douglas Carswell accused William Hague of being 'under the thumb of pro-Arabist’ diplomats, observing that the Foreign Office 'displays a kind of bigotry towards Israel', he was stating nothing that hasn’t been known for decades: incremental Saudi infiltration of Western governments ensures a foreign policy geared towards a ‘negotiated solution’ to the Israeli-Palestinian ‘problem’. If World War III is to be averted, the compliant media chant, Israel must cease its settlement of the ‘Palestinian territories’ and ‘go the extra mile’ for the peace and stability of the region. This entails negotiating with terrorists, but it is a camel worth swallowing in the hope of straining out a few gnats. Yet the strategy has led only to murder, suicide bombings, and an education system under which Arab children are taught that Jews are worse than pigs.

For the Palestinian Authority sitting in Ramallah, there can be no peace as long as there are Jews in Jerusalem. The Islamist ideology which spawns hatred for the children of Abraham and Isaac will not be satisfied with Gaza or the West Bank. Each time Israel has proffered an olive branch, the Palestinians have rejected talks, doubtless for fear of going the way of Anwar Sadat. But blaming Israel for its ‘provocative’ and ‘illegal’ settlements is easy: Jerusalem, Judaea and Samaria belong to ‘Palestine’, we’re told, and the lie is propagated and sustained with Washington dollars and Brussels euros. And the more the President of the United States criticises Israel and concedes the Palestinian grievance, the more he emboldens Hamas, appeases Iran, turns a blind eye to Syria, and prolongs the Islamist Jihad against us all.

Islam is intrinsically incapable of peaceful coexistence with any belief system, even with itself. It is intrinsically violent and anarchic from top to bottom, and beginning to end.

'ethnically cleanse'

How I hate the use of this expression - the actions involved have absolutely nothing with the essentially understood wholesome message implied with 'cleansing' and everything to do with a crude propaganda excersise of legitimising abominable behaviour.

As much as Obama has contributed to emboldening the Arabs the biggest irony is European Union support for the construction of a new State of Palestine when it is doing it's utmost to eliminate the principle of individual nationhood within it's ever expanding borders.

What a sad bitter little world we live in. “Islamist ideology” may preach hatred against Israel, but Israel has exacerbated this unfortunate situation by any number of actions which are seen as “highhanded” by its neighbours. The only thing that will grow from the seeds of hatred, is more hatred. That applies regardless of whether you are confronting Arab anti-Semitism or Israeli paranoia.

Is there a solution?

I very much doubt it.

Ultimately the idea of a ‘two state’ solution will prove an absurdity given the attitude of all involved, Palestinians, Arabs, and Israelis. A single state encompassing Israelis and Palestinians could provide an answer of sorts - but again, Arab and Israeli attitudes of mind would present impossible obstacles. Who would overcome those obstacles?

Sadly, no one.

But Obama says he is not bluffing, Your Grace, and it's an election year in the US. Is it not the right time for him to talk softly but carry a big stick, which he seems to be doing, judging by the build up of US forces in the Gulf.
Obama has explicitly said that a nuclear armed Iran is unacceptable.

Why not believe him?

Whilst mindful of the security risks to Israel, your communicant feels that there is much we do not know. The position of the Sunni powers Turkey, Pakistan and Saudi Arabia is critical at this juncture.

It is easy to envisage a situation where Israel strikes first and independently, takes out the Iran nukes only to find itself betrayed and overwhelmed by nuclear weapons supplied by Pakistan and used by Turkey and the Saudis. For the Sunnis this is win-win; Israel takes out Iran, the Sunnis take out Israel and the caliphate is reborn.

The stakes are undoubtedly very high in this game of poker. It is extremely hard to see how Israel can escape its dilemma. From the Western perspective there is also the risk that a coalition of China, Russia and Iran will prevail and establish hegemony over the energy resources of the Gulf. This would lead to a massive shift in the global balance of power to the disadvantage of the West.

It does seem that the strategic position of Israel is on the brink of becoming unmanageable, with attendant risk of a second Holocaust.

What price an offer of re-settlement in the West?

The current situation is more an inditement of the west towards Israel, rather than a potential perceived destructive of Israel, by our two faced diplomacy.

After the Mighty One of Israel has brought His people back into the land after nearly 2000 yrs, as fore-stated in the OT, Ernst cannot see why He would allow them to be obliterated but Ernst can see how WE can be judged because of our duplicity. A Stone that cuts the hands of those that try to handle it!

They, Israel, will sign a 7 year peace treaty not have it imposed by War but as a guarantee of peace?? God Himself is the only true Guarantor of Israel's safety.

The West is setting the stage for this, just as surely as William Hague love's real ale * Hic *, because they are lost within this myth of 'Lawrence of Arabia-ism' that permeates through the FCO and BBC.

Our judgement, for our partaking of this monstrousity of deceit, cannot be long in coming.

Reasons for Christian Ignorance and Israel 1/2

Scripture not only urges Gentiles not to harm or curse the Jewish people; it also warns them of the disastrous consequences they will face if they defy those instructions.

"By the way, you are aware, aren't you, that the only people Zionists despise more than their victims are their Chrisian supporters in the west?" So what, how does this attitude make it right..Did the Good Samaritan first ask the injured man what his feelings where about Samaria and Samarians in general first??? Hmmm. Ernst does not have to guess which 'Church' you represent, does he!

Genesis 12:2

2 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:

or
Numbers 22:12

12 And God said unto Balaam, Thou shalt not go with them; thou shalt not curse the people: for they are blessed.

Christians are called to be a solace and comfort to the people of Israel, to be a blessing to them and to stand in solidarity with them in their times of need.

For centuries, the Church, with few exceptions, has failed to demonstrate genuine love toward Israel and to be a true blessing to the Jewish people. Indeed fella, more often than not, the reverse was the case. Jews suffered degradation, expulsions, forced conversions, inquisitions and much suffering at the hands of those claiming to love the Lord and calling themselves "Christian."

For you have replaced them, have you not, even though the Church and Israel have different origins and different destinies!

The key issue, in short, is not only whether Jews can survive more discrimination and oppression at the hands of Gentiles, but whether the Christian church can condone such incidents without totally betraying its moral and religious character and the integrity of its witness. Christians also have a moral obligation to stand in solidarity with Israel and to be a blessing to her - to preserve Israel and be a source of healing, reconciliation and comfort to the Jewish people.

The entire chapter of Romans 11 deals with the question, “Did God cast off His people?” (Rom. 11:1). The answer given to this leading question is that “God did not cast off his people which he foreknew” (Rom. 11:2).

“I say then, Did they stumble that they might fall? God forbid: but by their fall salvation is come unto the Gentiles, to provoke them to jealousy” (Rom. 11:11). The argument then turns on the statement that if the unbelief and “fall” of Israel as a nation was the occasion of blessing on the Gentiles, how much more will be the blessing on both Gentiles and Israel when Israel comes into its fullness of blessing: “Now if their fall is the riches of the world, and their loss the riches of the Gentiles; how much more their fulness?” (Rom. 11:12). These facts combine to serve as a warning to Gentiles not to be high-minded and as an encouragement to Israel that a future time of blessing is in store.

Ernst

Why you and others at your 'Church' are greatly mistaken!

Reasons for Christian Ignorance and Israel 2/2

Premillennialism “was extensively held in the Early Church.” and that it was superseded only when Augustine advanced the idea that the millennium was “to be interpreted spiritually as fulfilled in the Christian Church.”

As a matter of fact, even a casual study of the writings of the early fathers reveals that millenarianism was not only “extensively held” but was in fact the outstanding characteristic of early Christian eschatology.

As Ernst has quoted Early Church Fathers on many occasions to Dodo and others, to prove his points. The current in RCC thinking has not always prevailed but was built on by error, which would have mystified/horrified the early church, if viewed by them today.

“The most striking point in the eschatology of the ante-Nicene age is the prominent chiliasm, or millenarianism, that is the belief of a visible reign of Christ in glory on earth with the risen saints for a thousand years, before the general resurrection and judgment. It was indeed not the doctrine of the church embodied in any creed or form of devotion, but a widely current opinion of distinguished teachers, such as Barnabas, Papias, Justin Martyr, Irenaeus, Tertullian, Methodius, and Lactantius.” says Philip Schaff who was one of the leading historians of the nineteenth century, and one of the most public theologians and prominent intellectuals of his time.

Dear boy, 'WHY' Ernst is not of your 'religious' persuasion!!! He takes into consideration the scripturally revealed 'Whole Counsel Of God', not what tickles his intellect or foibles.

There is no Catholic authoritive doctrine or dogma relating to the nation of Israel or the position of the Jews in the 21st century!

Opinions certainly and the present Pope has put forward his own views. However, no serious theologian in the Church accepts the 'rapture' or the milliarian notion of a 1000 year reign of Christ on earth before the Final Judgement and such views have been discounted.

As for the Israel, the Jews and the Arab-Israeli conflict, lets try to deal with what's it front of us and stop trying to second guess God's ultimate plan. Let's just do what we consider right towards all parties concerned even accepting the Jewish people have a special place in God's heart and do still have a role to fulfill His plan.

We cannot unconditionally support the secular Israeli State, right or wrong because they are Jews!

IMO We are being set up for yet another war in the middle east, very possibly one that will make any before look like a over rowdy child's tea party in comparison.

We must try our best to understand that these things have well established patterns. The USA, and the British in the more distant past, always appears to be either disinterested or plain isolationist before the storm breaks, or more accurately is deliberately created, and then deliberately broken.

Most usually a president is selected who promises to not get involved in foreign wars, for example FDR, JFK, GW Bush, and B. Obama among others.

Then when the killing has reached fever pitch in comes the 7th cavalry all guns blazing to bring order out of chaos. Then to set up their mates to make an absolutely fortune clearing up the mess, and then rebuilding it all up again to there own satisfaction.

Israel has bent over 'backwards'to accommodate 'the Palestinians'.Land has been conceded to them and they have used this gesture of peace from Israel to set up missile batteries on land given to them to fire into Israeli towns killing innocent women and Children.
Those behind the 'Palestinian problem' do not want a solution, the 'Palestinians' are merely pawns in a much wider Arab agenda.
The Arab /Jew conflict is one which goes back through centuries and the 'Palestinian problem' is merely a 'lever' to get World opinion to side with Arabs against Jews.
The World watches on because China and Russia will not agree to stop the killing of civilians in Syria and Obama will go down the same route if he' sits on the fence' or actively criticises Israel who have actively sought peace with their hostile neighbours.

Mr Streetman @ 11.32, I am indeed a supporter of Israel. Your nation is one of extraordinary achievement that shines like a beacon in the Middle East. My concern is that the odds are becoming overwhelming. The strategic position of Israel today seems far worse than that of Britain in 1940, for example.

I don't think so!

Israel is the superior force in the region and if it wasn't it would have been elimated long ago. The surrounding countries have their own particualar internal problems at the moment so now is probably a good time to deal with Iran and the threat of it acquiring nuclear capability.

At some point the issue of a Palestinian State will have to be sorted one way or another. If Israel doesn't want this then let her say so and get on with dealing with the consequences. If it does agree to a two-state solution, then get on with implementing it.

Bluedog: The strategic position of Israel today seems far worse than that of Britain in 1940, for example.

Actually the strategic position of Israel is remarkable similar to that of Britain in 1940, given certain obvious geographic differences which does not bode well, however we all know who ultimately won WW2.

It was us, I can all hear you saying, but you would be wrong.

The UK lost most of it's remaining empire shortly afterwards, was bankrupt by 1942, lost millions of its own people, its independence, and social cohesiveness, and became much of what Germany had become simply to avoid losing even more dismally. The people of the UK gained absolutely nothing whatsoever worth having other then their survival.

Of course it most certainly was not Germany, or the German speaking people, and Japan did not come out of it over well, to say the very least.

Was it The Soviet Union, No. They lost more people and riches then the rest of the world put together.

Was it America, No. They came out of things reasonably well but still would have been better off in the majority of ways if the war had never happened in the first place, not forgetting the lives lost.

So who won, because surely someone did?

As we know every cloud has a silver lining so to speak.

The winner was corporate SOCIALISM in the West, corporate Communism in the East, and the International bankers that financed both sides of the conflict. Without which the whole event could never have taken place in the first place.

Which is also why we then entered into something that become know as the Cold War, which made more money for these people then can be easily estimated.

But you can be fairly certain that it is measured in hundreds of $ TRILLIONS.

The British Empire appeared to stand alone in 1940. As Israel seems to stand alone today, however the truth is that neither The UK stood alone then, nor does Israel stand alone today, in the end allies don't come bigger then the technological and material might of The USA.

Hitler was conned into believing that The USA would stay out of Europe, and Asia until it was far too late to do anything about it.

Once the USA most inevitably entered the war on the side of The British Empire the ultimate result of World War 2 became an immediate foregone conclusion, and Hitler, Stalin, FDR and Churchill knew it to be so.

So it will be with Israel, however how many Israelis, or Muslims will still be alive by then, is another question.

I do not make any prediction as to when the next big one will actually happen, it could be tomorrow, or some time within the next 25 years.

Mr Dodo @ 21.26, the problem facing Israel as I see it is that the opponents are now non-Arab Muslims, serious players. Sure, both Syria and Egypt are in disarray, and that's excellent. Saudi-Arabia is of course Arab, but is unique as keeper of the Muslim holy places and heavily supported by Pakistani personnel. The recent change of stance by Turkey regarding Israel is a set-back, and the Iranians may be crazy but they are not incompetent.

Israel lacks strategic depth and cannot afford losses of manpower, unlike the above. Israel is therefore a weapon system that has a single shot in its locker, and that shot must be a direct hit on the right target. David and Goliath come to mind, yet again.

It is an exceedingly complex situation with endless combinations and permutations, all of which makes the outcome completely unpredictable.

Mr Atlas @ 23.15, Britain was perversely saved by Imperial Japan, but not in ways the Japanese intended.

Before US involvement in WW2 but subsequently, FDR had a personal envoy in New Delhi, a Colonel Collins, whose specific mission was to advise the nascent Congress Party on winning independence from Britain. It does not seem to have occurred to FDR that if his envoy had been successful in say, 1942, at the time of the Cripps Offer, the position of Japan may have been greatly advanced by withdrawal of an independent India from the British Empire. Indian neutrality at that point would have made it virtually impossible to dislodge the Japanese from South-East Asia.

This communicant remains unconvinced that SOCIALISM was a war aim of Nazi Germany or Imperial Japan.

Just watched part 2 of Empire by Paxo, regarding the making of our Nation. The way this snobbish, arrogant pillock put it , it should really have been titled Vampire!

When you presumed that something of worth on the subject can be brought to the light, all we get is emotive sneering bias by a secularist sycophant from a sycophant secularist entity, promoting a new secularist empire it is a mouthpiece for, throughout our nation and commonwealth.

The British Empire included Canada, Jamaica, India, Pakistan, Australia, Egypt, Kenya, Ireland, Suriname, Afghanistan, Normandy, America, Hong-Kong, New Zealand, Burma, Nepal, Belize, Bahamas and Grenada and all we found out was 'we were a bunch of bad eggs'.

That the British Empire is the largest empire in history and for over a century, was the foremost global power but did nothing or left nothing of value or legacy.
Legacy?
1.Made world wide trade systems.
2.Empire wide uniform laws.
3.Brought education, medical care, infrastructure and economic development to regions.
4.Promoted a common language.
5.Provided police/ military security to their territories.
6.Unified India and built the railways.
7.Taught them English which has been a major strength in their IT industry going global.
8.Corrected the wrongs of slavery.
9.By and large, left cultures intact except for the gratuitous slaughter of their own or human sacrifice.
9.Industrial Revolution,
10.SPORT!

Th next episode will probably include Paxman's 'take' on 'Balfour's perfidy in Palestine'. What a joy.

Surely the evaluation of history will allow us that we did more good than harm, unless of course you are a "guardian' reader, feasting on the pronouncements of Bernard Potter, where the bad side of Empire is the treachery of the British in every dealing as greed and unfettered violence is always implied as not far from the surface, whereas the atrocities committed by the colonised is, well, of an heroic nature and proportions and justified in all ciecumstances, even the beheading and dismembering of a white settler's body that was left in the street, pinned downwards and used as a general latrine by all the natives that passed by.

Paxman was shocked by a ex colonial (indian) family that came to Leicester from Kenya, who said the British did more good than harm and that after being given independence; corruption, mis-administration of the country and lack of justice were apparent. Paxo said nowt!

Ernst much preferred John Sergeant's Tracks of Empire. More balanced, even if some harsh history was brought to the fore and why trains are such a glorious association with our Country.
What magnificent engineers we once possessed in this nation!

If we all supposedly know what a 'crime' the British Empire was and should be filled with eternal shame, why is it not taught in history from GCSE to A Level or must we rely on unrosed tinted specs from the Guardianista or Professional pillocks like Paxman?

Mid-March is the estimated time of departure as the conjunction of Venus and Mars will offer sufficient distraction for this event.

Like many, I rather naively hoped that Obama would prove to be a 'breath of fresh' air upon the American political scene; but, as many people, both black and white, said: Obama was the 'wrong black man' for the job. Well, regardless of colour, I reckon he was just plain wrong, full-stop.

It is cruelly ironic, that Obama has done much, by doing very little, to equal the disastrous policies of Bush; and possibly even moreso.

Well I keep blogging along trying to make up a song about what to thread to you,
Telling how the Roman lights and the Sistine nights are like a mare come true

CHORUS:
You Dork, You Dork, so funny you threaded it twice,
You Dork, You Dork, Catholic scandal and the vice, You love it!
You Dork, You Dork, now isn't it a pity.........
What they say about Vatican City!

There once was a chap named Blofeld,
Who to criticise Rome felt compelled.
Each day he did dream
A new critique extreme,
But none were ever upheld.

Blofeld. Inspector enjoyed your analysis of the British Empire. Don’t you find that along with fashionable moral degeneration comes a lack of appreciation of anything which can be called achievement by socialist levellers.

However, the Inspector has good reason to believe the left wing days will eventually come to an end. In the early 1960s, the US government was so concerned at the way its college young were turning out, they engaged the CIA to investigate. Various studies took place. One found that the phenomenon mainly affected the baby boomers of around 1946. It transpired they were affected, consciously or unconsciously by their father’s exploits in the war, and their rejection of the violence involved. Hence the ‘peace and love’. It would not be beyond imagination a similar effect occurred in the UK. The Inspector remembers with alarm as a young schoolboy, a sandal wearing long haired type excuse for a trainee teacher being introduced to his primary school class by an old school type, ‘The Major’. (Major Lee-Smith, deputy head master, thoroughly good chap).

Indeed, Mr Inspector @ 17.58, there was a time when a certain type of school for young chaps had more MCs in the common room than MAs.

You make an interesting point on the origins of the peace and love movement. Didn't it originate on the US East Coast in the Ivy League colleges, despite its ultimate identification with California? It was certainly not a British phenomenon, although the Beatles (John Lennon) did their best to subvert the nation. Lennon of course became a resident of NYC, where he may have found the Village culture more to his liking.

He really has, and he is falling right into the hands of the Islamists and the radical left. Surprised if he doesn't head up the next UN conference on Zionism.

That blue dog. More recollections of what the Inspector researched...

At a time when types such as John Wayne were seen as the ideal man, research went into why American girls were suddenly attracted to weedy beatniks. The conclusion was that in times of uncertainty and strife, John Wayne et al won out. The idea being the future mother needed a protector. In more stable times, and with it, an increase in the standard of living and the living got softer, the girl could indulge in a ‘soul mate’. That is, an effeminate type who could empathise with her. So there you have it, the ladies made the final choice according to circumstances, (...was it any other way in recent times ?...)...

Your comment on US education, Lennon and the Beatles, catches my attention, Mr. Bluedog! I never had much time for them after the Maharishi mess. However, I'm in mid-struggle with Ferris Bueller's Day Off, which centralizes a Lennon quote in its pastiche/montage:-- "I don't believe in Beatles; I just believe in me...and that reality" is what Lennon sang in "God."-- Whereafter the singer, like Cameron, goes on to be re-born.

Because the film is a collage of cultural effects, one can move beyond the Freudian-Jungian terms and consider the struggle it represents for political Freedom. That struggle has been continuous from the archetypal Egyptian exodus ["Let my Cameron Go"], through the Illinois slave emancipation [cf "Egypt"], and also through the Communist struggles based in Chicago.

To wit, Cam's father is Morris Frye("small man"), and the heartland that is CHI was the home of Morris Childs: the FBI has recently released details of his double-agent activities.

Furthermore, Chicago was the home of Saul Alinsky, who is said to have influenced Obama as follows:
http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2012/03/04/obama-alinsky-love-song

Anyway, I reckon that the real thesis of Ferris (and that lovely Rotweiler) is about freeing the Children of Chicago ["Bueller... Ferris Bueller"] from the infiltration of Communist education...

If so, John Hughes showed 'em what was going on back in 1986.

Sadly, Obama bought into the persona- just the mask - of "The Fool on the Hill."

Can we not, by historical analysis, be appraised fairly? Not everything we did was treacherous..There were bad eggs as well as good within the empire but it all gets lost in the translating into a definitive evaluation.
There is even more left from that legacy than the things listed by Ernst, things that we gave (and left after, for their use) rather than only took (What did we smash or destroy prior to leaving). We parted in goodwill and set up a Commonwealth!

The Way of Dodo the Dude limerick-ed...

Impressive, lad. 8/10..Would have been 10/10 but felt strangely 'compelled' to ex-communicate 2 marks for including the word 'Rome' in it????! *chortles*

Blog Office of Inspector General said to Ernst, however..

"Hence the ‘peace and love’....However, the Inspector has good reason to believe the left wing days will eventually come to an end.”
The first fissure in our society was done by the sixties culture, no doubt but the real damage was/is done by the continuing legacy of 24 hr MTV culture of video gratuitous sex scenes and violent lyrics and an illiterate, self serving, callous youth. Mystery as to how, exactly, it can be changed????? We don’t exactly see gangs of ‘last night of the prommers’ roaming the streets of Sydenham, Tottenham, Moss Side or Croxteth with guns/knifes in hands? Do we?

Thank you, Mr. B! I never read wazzo. Thought of you during that analysis, though - on account of Ferris as James, do you see :)

It wasn't just the Beatles, for Hughes. His commentary to the film shows he was also a huge Bond fan.

FBDO's quite interestingly topical too, because Honda appropriated it for their Superbowl ad.** The car is red, and they seem to have gleaned some of the "I am a Walrus" signification, but I suspect that this bit of Cultural Invasion may have backfired a little. After all, ORD is only a couple of hundred miles from DTW.

So double-O Ferris is still at work!(Whether or not grinner Obama has missed it---or even forgotten that Alinsky was Jewish).

How I despise Obama. God forgive me for uncharitable thoughts. Unfortunately most Americans did not listen when they were told that Obama was the worst abortionist and they did not vote to defend life and the legacy of death is being promoted by anti-christ. The offering of non-kosher food to Netanyahu at the White House was a disgrace to America. We are past the point of politics. The forces of satan are strong in the modern world and the agenda is to succeed where Hitler failed. I am more and more convinced that we are in the End Times i.e. the seventy weeks prophesied by Daniel who says:

9.24 'Seventy weeks are decreed for your people and your holy city, for putting an end to transgression, for placing the seal on sin, for expiating crime, for introducing everlasting uprightness for setting the seal on vision and on prophecy, for anointing the holy of holies. 25 Know this, then, and understand: From the time there went out this message: "Return and rebuild Jerusalem" to the coming of an Anointed Prince, seven weeks and sixty-two weeks, with squares and ramparts restored and rebuilt, but in a time of trouble.

Return and rebuild Jerusalem? There has only been two occasions in the last 2600 years when this occurred. The first occurred when Cyrus allowed the Jews to return peacefully so it was not in a time of trouble. Therefore the only occasion to which the prophecy of Daniel can apply is the 1947 vote at the U.N. to partition Israel – it has certainly been in a time of trouble. Seventy years from 1947 takes us to 2017 which Bruton claims will be the date of Jesus second coming (see Daniel’s Timeline on Youtube by Dewey Bruton). The solution is now out of the hands of politician but more troubled times are yet to come. Here is a locution from modern times:

The Church came forth from Israel, like a child begotten by a mother, but Israel began to reject her own child. The soil rejected the fruit it had brought forth. Then came the saddest time of all. Israel and the Church were separated. Now they stand as distinct groups. The mother has rejected her child and the soil has rejected the roots that should have stayed within it. … However, when the darkness comes and Israel is in distress, there will be a new moment. The Pope, the head of the Catholic Church, will go to Israel in its darkest hour and lay down his life for Israel. The eyes of many Jewish people will be opened. They will say “We have been saved by the Catholic Church”. The soil will be open and receptive again to the original seed. My Church and my Jewish people will be joined as I have wanted them to be for centuries. As the Church’s roots are placed once more into its original Jewish soil, the other divisions of the churches will be healed because they happened due to this first division of the Church from the Synagogue. It will be clear to all the Christian Churches that there is a new call to unity, a call to unity at the roots and in the heart. Churches will see what they have never seen and do what they thought they would never do. Seeing the union of Israel and the Catholic Church, they will say, “We must be one”. All the barriers to unity, put up over the many centuries, will be swept away in one breath of the Spirit. http://www.locutions.org/home-3/

Any detractors of the British Empire should compare it with other European states own attempts. Particularly thinking here of Africa, with the Germans and the Belgians in the Congo. Think everyone will find our effort was THE model. A few sad moments, of course, but you do find some dirt poor savages resist being civilised, even now (Afghanistan). Overall though, we left behind far more good than harm.

Even that daughter of the colonies, Diane Abbott, couldn’t disagree there...
