This should sober up anyone who hasn’t been paying attention to all that is going on……

Those who want a Welfare State can outvote those who pay for it…..

It is time for every voice to get engaged before it is too late.

Eric Cantor told the following story in his speech:

The following story illustrates Israel’s dilemma.

A Palestinian woman from Gaza arrives at Soroka Hospital in Beersheba
for lifesaving skin treatment for burns over half her body. After the
conclusion of her extensive treatment, the woman is invited back for
follow-up visits to the outpatient clinic. One day she is caught at
the border crossing wearing a suicide belt. Her intention? To blow
herself up at the same clinic that saved her life.

What kind of culture leads one to do that?

CANTOR’S STORY IS RELATED TO:
a note by Arieh Eldad, the Israeli Dr. and Politician.
BUT WHAT FOLLOWS THE ELDAD NOTE IS MORE DRAMATIC
IT IS THE ACTUAL YOU TUBE VIDEO OF THE EVENT. SEE BELOW

Subject: FW: Understand what the conflict really is about

From: Dr. Arieh Eldad:

I was instrumental in establishing the Israeli National Skin Bank,  which
is the largest in the world. The National Skin Bank stores skin for every
day needs as well as for war time or mass casualty situations.

This skin bank is hosted at the Hadassah Ein Kerem University hospital  in
Jerusalem where I was the Chairman of plastic surgery. This is how I was
asked to supply skin for an Arab woman from Gaza , who was hospitalized  in
Soroka Hospital in Beersheva, after her family burned her. Usually, such
atrocities happen among Arab families when the women are suspected of
having an affair.

We supplied all theneeded Homografts for her treatment. She was
successfully treated by my friend and colleague, Prof. Lior Rosenberg  and
discharged to return to Gaza . She was invited for regular follow-up  visits
to the outpatient clinic in Beersheva.

One day she was caught at a border crossing wearing a suicide belt.
She meant to explode herself in the outpatient clinic of the hospital
where they saved her life.   It seems that her family promised her that if she did that, they would
forgive her.

This is only one example of the war between Jews and Muslims in the
Land of Israel .  It is not a territorial conflict. This is a civilizational
conflict, or rather a war between civilization & barbarism.

Bibi (Netanyahu) gets it, Obama does not.

I have never written before asking to please forward onwards, so that
as many as possible can understand radical Islam and what awaits the
world if it is not stopped.

Dr Arieh Eldad

I would ask any of you who don’t know the history of Israel to spend some time with the document at the below link.  We have had so much misinformation and distortion when it comes to Israel that I expect very few understand the accurate history.  The country deserves the right to exist – the Jews have earned it.  They have been persecuted for ‘forever’, they earned the land they were finally given to become a free democratic State, and they have had hordes of Arabs trying to kill them for a long time.  They have defended themselves repeatedly since they came into existence as a State (See Page 12 of the PDF at the link).  They have given back territory they won when they were attacked on those numerous occasions.  They have attempted to live peaceably with their Arab neighbors, but that isn’t good enough for the neighbors – the neighbors want the entire nation wiped off the face of the planet.

Besides all of the above, they have been the only free and steadfast ally of the United States in that region of the world.  And who can overlook the horrors perpetrated on them as a people by the Nazis……while the rest of the world looked away?  The U.S. and many other nations promised never to forget what happened to the Jews because of Hitler, but it seems the promises are fading.    And if you are a Christian, and believe these are the people God chose to show Himself to in order for man to know the Holy Kingdom, consider those implications…………..

Did you know that Israel was called Palestine before it was Israel, and inhabited almost exclusively by Jewish settlers?  That word has changed meaning over time has it not?  PLEASE GET EDUCATED ABOUT THIS NATION AND WHAT IT HAS ENDURED.  This country and it’s people need and deserve our support.  How could we consider standing by and not helping?  And what is worse is our current President seems to be doing things that will only further inflame the Muslims who surround Israel to further action by not strongly supporting her right to existence, while all those Arab nations are calling for the complete annihilation of the Jewish State.

Can you even imagine being such a persecuted race of people/nation, with  ‘neighbors’ who daily call for your extermination?  Try to put yourself there, read the history, and then decide if you will support Israel’s right to existence by any means available to you, starting with writing your elected officials.

“Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: GOD will not hold us innocent.  Not to speak is to speak.  Not to act is to act.”— Dietrich Bonhoeffer   ( This man lived during the Nazi regime, and died by their hand, trying to do the right thing.  He saw what was happening and tried to get people to listen – but it was too late. – For more info read “Bonhoeffer:  Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy:  A Righteous Gentile Vs. The Third Reich”.   This book is also available as an audio book.  He was a living example of Courage and doing what is right.

I’m sure this wouldn’t be of interest to everyone but it needs to be shared.  I was surprised to find that a church would so openly push a political social agenda…..as I found based on an email I received about the United Methodists and followed up with research at below link.  I was originally baptized Methodist, and have always found the Methodist church a place I could be comfortable in.  To find their leadership with an agenda such as laid out at the link was disappointing and reminds me of the unions whose leadership have agendas that a lot of the members are not privy to.  My church home of Calvary Chapel stays away from political and social agendas by sticking strictly to teaching the bible.  I would encourage all Christians to investigate if their church has a political social agenda, and if so what is it.

What I find most offensive about the UM agenda items is their attempt to make health care a ‘right’, and to have government legislate items that should remain freedom of choice.  The most basic elements of Christianity is that God made us in His image and instilled in us the ‘freedom to choose’.  In my opinion He is the only giver of basic human rights (ownership of ourselves (life) and our property (pursuit of happiness – no guarantees), and liberty ( human beings are able to govern themselves, to behave according to their own free will, and take responsibility for their actions)….The UM agenda item referencing govt. programs shows a lack of understanding of the very programs they discuss – and who is eligible and how they are funded (or not)….but the fact that they are advocating govt. funding of social programs seems to indicate they are willing to abdicate their responsibility as God’s hands and feet to the government…..that is not part of the Charity, Stewardship and Liberty I have learned from being a Christian.

Social issues are not simple, but when viewed through the lens of the personal practice of God’s tenants in order to be considered worthy of salvation (believe in Jesus and do what he told us to, and when we stumble get up and keep trying), versus through the lens of some collective salvation where we must do specific things dictated by other human beings or groups of human beings, they are a lot clearer….at least to me.

All,  Before you overlook this – read about what happens if the US Dollar is no longer the world currency (and what other nations are saying about the Federal Reserve devaluing our dollar – and their country’s  investments in the dollar – by printing more and more money) – there are links at the bottom to get to the articles.  THIS SHOULD SERVE TO SCARE YOU ENOUGH TO GET YOUR ATTENTION – AND FOR YOU TO USE TO GET OTHERS ATTENTION, if not, forget everything after “America was once a great country…..”  IF YOU’VE NEVER SPENT THE TIME TO READ MY MATERIAL BEFORE I BEG YOU TO SPEND THE TIME READING AND RESEARCHING THIS ONE – even if you have to do it in doses over a week’s time.

The following video link is a good example of the differences from Bush to Obama…..you have to ask yourself why……why were the leaders and the media willing to wail and bash so long and hard about gas then and not now – when it is now so much higher?  The nudge is becoming a push in my opinion…..buy a green car, built by a motor company that your tax dollars have kept in business (all except Ford).  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qKdScVerrBU

But there is more to high prices than the rhetoric we’ve been fed – like a President has a backroom deal because he loves the big oil companies……etc, etc, etc.

Oil (and therefore Food) prices are going up because the US dollar is losing value.  The oil is traded in US dollars (we are still just barely holding on to the US dollar as the world currency).  If $’s are worth less doesn’t it stand to reason that the owners of the oil understand that to make a profit they have to raise their prices?

The Federal Reserve is devaluing the dollar by printing more and more of them and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) just said that the dollar will no longer be the world currency by 2016…..and I think that is optimistic.  Read it for yourself at:  http://www.marketwatch.com/story/imf-bombshell-age-of-america-about-to-end-2011-04-25?link=MW_home_latest_news

Another question to ask yourself – Why would an administration stop oil drilling here and drive away thousands of jobs and billions in tax revenues, yet spend our money to help Brazil drill oil, and allow it’s Environmental Protection Agency to continue to pass rules that makes it harder if not impossible for us to drill our own oil – which causes gas (and food) prices to climb higher?  Does this seem logical or in the best interest of the country?

When China surpasses the US as the largest economy – which is only a few years away from current economist predictions, what happens?  What happens when the US dollar is no longer the world currency?  THESE ARE THE QUESTIONS YOU SHOULD BE ASKING, AND ASKING YOUR FRIENDS AND RELATIVES………And BTW – George Soros seems to be helping with the predictions and the move away from the US Dollar – surprised?  He’s crushed several other countries currencies so this is not new…..

Read about what it might be like to lose the dollar as the world currency……and decide – is this enough to motivate you, and others you can reach, to do something about the hole this country is digging itself?  If this doesn’t motive those who haven’t gotten in the game I don’t believe anything will….but for those that it does…. PREPARE!!!!!  Store some food, and do everything else you can to plan for the loss of value in the greenbacks you hold…..prepare to take care of yourself, your family and to help friends and others who will not be able to withstand this…..

You can do your own research on what happens if the dollar is no longer the world currency….At the following links you’ll find articles I’ve sent before about what hyperinflation could look like, and for those who think Glenn Beck is full of hot air – look at what he was saying in 2009 about us losing the US dollar as the world currency……

What Hyperinflation In America Could Look Like

Unpegging from Dollar

If I can’t convince you of anything else please at least take all of this to mean YOU SHOULD PREPARE for the worst and hope for the best…….May we never see any of these predictions come true….but if they do, would you rather have done some preparation or be one of the millions who panic, lose everything, and have nothing to fall back on?

God Bless America and all those who want the freedoms and the inherent responsibilities that come with the Freedom She was founded on.
