An honest mistake - Priceless!

This is one of those stories I received in my email this morning. Oh, yeah, it was a good reminder about how our faith can be put in a spotlight, and when we don't live up to it, see what happens?! Just sayin'...
An honest mistake...

The light turned yellow, just in front of him. He did the right thing, stopping at the crosswalk, even though he could have beaten the red light by accelerating through the intersection.

The tailgating woman was furious and honked her horn, screaming in frustration, as she missed her chance to get through the intersection, dropping her cell phone and makeup.

As she was still in mid-rant, she heard a tap on her window and looked up into the face of a very serious police officer. The officer ordered her to exit her car with her hands up. He took her to the police station where she was searched, fingerprinted, photographed, and placed in a holding cell.

After a couple of hours, a policeman approached the cell and opened the door. She was escorted back to the booking desk where the arresting officer was waiting with her personal effects.

He said, "I'm very sorry for this mistake. You see,I pulled up behind your car while you were blowing your horn, flipping off the guy in front of you and cussing a blue streak at him. I noticed the "What Would Jesus Do" bumper sticker, the "Choose Life" license plate holder, the "Follow Me to Sunday-School" bumper sticker, and the chrome-plated Christian fish emblem on the trunk, so naturally... I assumed you had stolen the car."

God Lives Under the Bed

I received this story in my email today, and felt that I should share it!
God Lives Under the Bed

I envy Kevin. My brother, Kevin, thinks God lives under his bed. At least that's what I heard him say one night.

He was praying out loud in his dark bedroom, and I stopped to listen, 'Are you there, God?' he said. 'Where are you? Oh, I see. Under the bed...'

I giggled softly and tiptoed off to my own room. Kevin's unique perspectives are often a source of amusement. But that night something else lingered long after the humor. I realized for the first time the very different world Kevin lives in.

He was born 30 years ago, mentally disabled as a result of difficulties during labor. Apart from his size (he's 6-foot-2), there are few ways in which he is an adult.

He reasons and communicates with the capabilities of a 7-year-old, and he always will. He will probably always believe that God lives under his bed, that Santa Claus is the one who fills the space under our tree every Christmas and that airplanes stay up in the sky because angels carry them.

I remember wondering if Kevin realises he is different. Is he ever dissatisfied with his monotonous life?

Up before dawn each day, off to work at a workshop for the disabled, home to walk our cocker spaniel, return to eat his favorite macaroni-and-cheese for dinner, and later to bed.

The only variation in the entire scheme is laundry, when he hovers excitedly over the washing machine like a mother with her newborn child.

He does not seem dissatisfied.

He lopes out to the bus every morning at 7:05, eager for a day of simple work.

He wrings his hands excitedly while the water boils on the stove before dinner, and he stays up late twice a week to gather our dirty laundry for his next day's laundry chores.

And Saturdays - oh, the bliss of Saturdays! That's the day my Dad takes Kevin to the airport to have a soft drink, watch the planes land, and speculate loudly on the destination of each passenger inside. 'That one's goin' to Chi-car-go!' Kevin shouts as he claps his hands.

His anticipation is so great he can hardly sleep on Friday nights.

And so goes his world of daily rituals and weekend field trips.

He doesn't know what it means to be discontent.

His life is simple.

He will never know the entanglements of wealth of power, and he does not care what brand of clothing he wears or what kind of food he eats. His needs have always been met, and he never worries that one day they may not be.

His hands are diligent. Kevin is never so happy as when he is working. When he unloads the dishwasher or vacuums the carpet, his heart is completely in it.

He does not shrink from a job when it is begun, and he does not leave a job until it is finished. But when his tasks are done, Kevin knows how to relax.

He is not obsessed with his work or the work of others. His heart is pure.

He still believes everyone tells the truth, promises must be kept, and when you are wrong, you apologize instead of argue.

Free from pride and unconcerned with appearances, Kevin is not afraid to cry when he is hurt, angry or sorry. He is always transparent, always sincere. And he trusts God.

Not confined by intellectual reasoning, when he comes to Christ, he comes as a child. Kevin seems to know God - to really be friends with Him in a way that is difficult for an 'educated' person to grasp. God seems like his closest companion.

In my moments of doubt and frustrations with my Christianity, I envy the security Kevin has in his simple faith.

It is then that I am most willing to admit that he has some divine knowledge that rises above my mortal questions.

It is then I realise that perhaps he is not the one with the handicap. I am. My obligations, my fear, my pride, my circumstances - they all become disabilities when I do not trust them to God's care.

Who knows if Kevin comprehends things I can never learn? After all, he has spent his whole life in that kind of innocence, praying after dark and soaking up the goodness and love of God.

And one day, when the mysteries of heaven are opened, and we are all amazed at how close God really is to our hearts, I'll realize that God heard the simple prayers of a boy who believed that God lived under his bed.

Kevin won't be surprised at all!

America: Graduating from God? Part 2 ~ By Chuck Norris

There could not have been a more appropriate way to open this prologue to Part 2 of Chuck's awesome series, "America: Graduating from God?" and the related columns I have posted here last night and this morning. (See RELATED STORIES at the bottom of this column.) Chuck wrote: "Glenn Beck put it well in one of his radio broadcasts earlier this year (April 20, 2010): "I beg of you to help me get this message out … faith is the answer. Get on your knees. Don't let it take a Sept. 11. Please, get on your knees. I don't care what church you go to … just turn to Him." Here's the video of Glenn in that glorious moment:

Glenn Beck: Turn to God!

Normally, I am usually posting columns on another blog (Blogging in Our Time 2 Escape) on Monday mornings. However, there were these columns that I found that all referred to our need to ask God for his help in getting us through all that is facing us at this time, and it is definitely the only answer. This all started with Pat Boone's column, "Can things get any worse? You betcha." Pat was right on the money, in my humble opinion. The things that are happening in this world are way beyond our pay-grade to solve... Or maybe even over the pay-grade of "The One" (You know who I'm referring to, right? You will know that answer when you read this column by Chuck!).

And then there was Greg Laurie's absolutely outstanding column admonishing Christians to quit staying silent. America needs us. I took his advice. Apparently, so did Chuck Norris! In this column, Chuck reinforces the need to make sure that people in America understand what gave our Founding Fathers the strength to bring this country to Freedom. Yes, he notes that Obama seems to be trying to make America a secular nation, and he explains, from the point of view of Benjamin Franklin, why that is the wrong thing to do.

I must tell you that I am all for diversity of religions in America, and we must keep the freedom to keep it that way. And I believe the video of Glenn Beck's segment, that you saw above, says it all, and completely ties the posts I've put on this blog today all together. This column by Chuck Norris is an excellent conclusion, too, as it tells us that the man in the White House wants us to believe it is all about Man's solutions, and there is no need for the Lord. It is all about Obama and the government to be our savior. And folks, that just isn't working out so well. Just sayin'...

Ben Franklin could have been speaking before the president and Congress today when he gave these words at the Constitutional Convention:
In the beginning of the contest with Britain, when we were sensible of danger, we had daily prayers in this room for the divine protection. Our prayers, Sir, were heard; and they were graciously answered. All of us, who were engaged in the struggle, must have observed frequent instances of a superintending Providence in our favor. To that kind Providence we owe this happy opportunity of consulting in peace on the means of establishing our future national felicity. And have we now forgotten that powerful friend? Or do we imagine we no longer need its assistance? I have lived, Sir, a long time; and the longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth, That God governs in the affairs of men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without his notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without his aid?
These are three questions every Washington politician in particular needs to answer: "And have we now forgotten that powerful friend? Or do we imagine that we no longer need [His] assistance? And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without his notice, is it probable that an empire can rise [again] without his aid?"

Last week in Part 1, I discussed a series of evidences about how God is being omitted from American life, culture and politics. In Part 2, I will detail the No. 1 advocate for a godless society: our president.

I believe there is no greater proponent of disposing deity and godly influence over government and society than President Barack Obama, who is right now spearheading a purely secular progressive agenda unlike any leader since America's inception.

First, even during his campaign for the presidency, Obama sarcastically belittled America's Judeo-Christian heritage and degraded its adherents with trite remarks typical of any atheistic antagonist: "Whatever we were, we are no longer a Christian nation"; "The dangers of sectarianism are greater than ever"; "Religion doesn't allow for compromise"; "The Sermon on the Mount [is] a passage that is so radical that our own defense department wouldn't survive its application"; and "To base our policy making upon such commitments [as moral absolutes] would be a dangerous thing." (See the YouTube video below)
Barack Obama On The Importance Of A Secular Government

And gone but not forgotten is Obama's religiously belittling statement on the campaign trail in April of 2008 about many residents in small-town America. You might recall, at a private California fundraiser, when he addressed the economic hardships of those in Pennsylvania, he quipped: "You go into some of these small towns in Pennsylvania, and like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing's replaced them. … And it's not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion … as a way to explain their frustrations."

Second, Obama has already denied America's rich Judeo-Christian heritage before the eyes and ears of other countries, as he publicly declared in Turkey on April 6, 2009, for the whole world to hear: "We do not consider ourselves a Christian nation." (Who are the "we" to whom he refers? Would our former presidents agree with his "we"?)
Obama In Turkey "We Do Not Consider Ourselves A Christian Nation"

Overseas, Obama avoided both America's Christian heritage and his own alleged Christian faith. He was proud to share, "I have Muslim members of my family," but avoided any declaration like, "But I am a Christian"? My primary problem with his choice of words is that, while building up himself and his leadership before the Arab world, he repeatedly belittled the country he led, and that is unbecoming for any president.

By saying America was not a religious nation of any type, Obama implied that America is a secular nation with a secular heritage, which is also an incorrect notion of our people and our history. Any of a number of statements would have been more accurate: "America is a religiously free nation – both people and government." "America is a nation in which we welcome religious diversity." "We are a religiously diverse people, in which the majority still profess Christianity." "We have a religiously free government in which its citizens are encouraged to practice their own religious convictions freely without federal coercion." But Obama used none of these or similar statements.

For Obama to convey that "We are not a Christian nation," intentionally overlooks both our religious heritage and the Christian majority still in America. He could have even said, "America is no longer a Christian nation," but he didn't say that – and even that would have been incorrect. How is it he could speak to largely Arab nations and refer to them all as Muslim, but he can't call America a Christian nation, even though Christianity is the religion to which the majority have always adhered since our founders started it?

By contrast, Thomas Jefferson, hailed as the great separatist who fought against the tyranny of denominational sectarianism in the state (and vice versa), nevertheless endorsed the use of government buildings (like the Capitol) for church services, signed a treaty with the Kaskaskia Indians that allotted federal money to support the building of a Catholic church and to pay the salary of the church's priests, and repeatedly renewed legislation that gave land to the United Brethren to help their missionary activities among the Indians.

Third, quite contrary to Obama's negative tone and sentiments about Judeo-Christian belief, in countless speeches over the past year he has sympathized and supported pro-Islamic theology and practice. The New York Times recently published a multiple-page report on how the "White House quietly courts Muslims in the U.S." Obama even refused to say anything when the Muslim jihadist and president of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, publicly accused the U.S. of actively planning and plotting to stop mankind's real savior: i.e. Mahdi, the Imam that Muslims believe will be the ultimate savior of mankind.

Fourth, Obama advocates his secular agenda like other progressives because (so they naively believe) if God can be disposed, government is no longer accountable to a deity. In fact, in so doing, government vies for omnipotence and usurps the position of God. As Obama emphatically declared early in his presidency, "only government" is our savior. That is what's so disheartening about America's present political environment: The majority in Washington is truly convinced that more and bigger government is America's primary solution for recovery, future growth and security.

A clear example of this came out just last month through Obama's Faith-Based Initiative Committee recommendations. Not only is the federal government seeking to minimize the language preachers use through politically correct hate-crime laws, but now the feds are seeking to alter the message they preach as well – from saving souls to saving the earth. Obama's Faith-Based Council specifically recommends, "Bringing the power of 370,000 houses of worship across the country to the fight of climate change by greening buildings and promoting environmental stewardship in their congregations."

America: Graduating from God? Part 1 ~ By Chuck Norris

Rep. Randy Forbes put a video on, which now has 3,196,272 views, and is described as follows:

Our Judeo-Christian Nation

Congressman Forbes asks the questions "Did America ever consider itself a Judeo-Christian nation?" and "If America was once a Judeo-Christian nation, when did it cease to be?" on the floor of the US House.

When I went to Chuck's column on WND tonight, I noticed it was Part 2 of a two-part series, so I went back to this Part 1 to start from the beginning. (I missed last week's column because of that morning when technology failed, and didn't get a chance to get caught up.)  Amazingly, this column was directly related to the two previous stories that I post on this blog this morning, which you can see under RELATED STORIES toward the bottom of this page. Pat Boone wrote about the problems facing America and the world that there seems to be no solutions for, except for turning to God.  The column by Greg Laurie discusses the need for Christians to quit evading and start invading. In short, both columns said that Christians must be SILENT NO MORE. And in this column, Chuck Norris explains how Christianity is being eliminated from American culture. So, it is very fitting for me to conclude this introduction to Chuck's column by saying that we must pray, and begin taking back America. We need to be the shining city on the hill for all to see. Just sayin'...

George Washington gave a very wise and timely word in his "Farewell Address" to all prospective Americans (including all government officials) who even entertain the thought that they can graduate from God. It also serves as a great "commencement address" to all graduates this spring:
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of patriotism, who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. The mere politician, equally with the pious man, ought to respect and to cherish them. A volume could not trace all their connections with private and public felicity. Let it simply be asked: Where is the security for property, for reputation, for life, if the sense of religious obligation deserts the oaths which are the instruments of investigation in courts of justice? And let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion. Whatever may be conceded to the influence of refined education on minds of peculiar structure, reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle."
Our founders' America is on life support and breathing its last. And the only ones who can save it are the God who assisted our founders in its creation and the patriots who today bear His and our founders' baton. Our focus is no longer the total war, but one battle at a time – one rally at a time, one election at a time and one piece of legislation at a time.

(Note: This is Part 1 of a two-part series on spiritual regression in America.)

Last week I read a blog post that noted how prayer was banned at a high-school graduation in Indiana but not in Alabama. Then I read another news report about how another California high school changed its graduation "opening prayer" to "a moment of silence." No big shocker there.

Tragically, these types of devaluing religious news stories are a dime a dozen today. Spiritual regression is not only a trend but an epidemic.

The Fuller Youth Institute just reported that less than half (40 percent) of even church-going high-school seniors "significantly struggle with their faith and with finding a church after graduation." And other statistics show that, by the time they end their college education, 90 percent will have dropped out of church.

The Barna Group reports that only 29 percent of teenagers say they "will definitely" be attending church after graduation. That's about one in three if you're an optimist Рabout one in four if you're a pessimist. And about one in five if you believe these polled teenagers are either overly optimistic or over-exaggerators. Any way you look at it, the "Leave It to Beaver" family seems so pass̩ and archaic in our times.

Long ago the Creator was replaced by natural causes in public classrooms. Prayer was ousted by human potential. Humans have become the kings of their castles and captains of their souls. Preaching has been overturned by political correctness. Church has been replaced by the NFL and Sunday commerce. And the government is now God, granting to all who has need. And we're shocked that more and more of our children and grandchildren want nothing to do with church?

Attrition in church attendance and faith in God is definitely on the rise. And so is animosity toward America's Judeo-Christian heritage.

Two Connecticut public schools were denied their graduation ceremonies from being held in a local church by U.S. District Court Judge Janet Hall. Hall ruled in favor of the ACLU on behalf of two local high-school seniors and their parents, who said the students were agnostic and would find it "difficult if not impossible" to attend the graduation if it were held in a church. Hall concluded that using a church for graduation would be an unconstitutional endorsement of religion. Leave it up to the ACLU and a federal judge to tell a local community where they could and could not hold their graduations, even though the majority favored it in the large church which was perfect for the big graduation crowds.

Christians: Infiltrate, don't isolate ~ By Greg Laurie

This column, along with the one by Pat Boone I just posted prior to this one, "Can things get any worse? You betcha," greatly inspired me. I hadn't been using this blog very often, and I have many regrets about that. Greg and Pat gave me the ONE-TWO punch that God needed me to receive today.

While I realize that the political columns are great tools to help teach people what is going on in America and the world today, Pat's column was like a beam of light shining into my eyes from a lighthouse. I wrote the following in the prologue to Pat's column: "If God is not in our lives, then who - or what - will we turn to for helping us through these times? Just sayin'..."  The more I thought about it, the more I realized that I needed to remind people the ONLY source of peace in our hearts comes from God through His Son, Jesus Christ.

And then, Greg's column (this one) comes along, and reminded me of why I needed to return to speaking up about the only Truth that will really matter when it comes down to it. As Pat said, things may get a lot worse before it gets better. It is my belief that there will be a time when people will have a choice to make. Will they be willing to follow a man, like the one that promised hope and change? Or will they realize that only through Jesus Christ will they truly have salvation for their soul? Just sayin'...

...but attempting to isolate ourselves is not living out a biblical worldview. Jesus said, "You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? … You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden ... let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven" (Matthew 5:13–16 NIV). Jesus used two word pictures: salt and light, because the world is corrupt, and the world is dark. The world needs salt (a preserving agent) because it is corrupt, and the world needs light because it is dark.

However, as we go out to impact our culture with the good news, we must also realize that, by and large, people are not always supportive of and receptive to what we have to say. But we must say it anyway.

As Christians, we may try to withdraw into our own subculture, but that is not what we are to do. The objective of a Christian is not to isolate, but to infiltrate. It is not to evade, but to invade. We want to influence the world – not have the world influence us. We are to impact our culture without being compromised by it.

A few years ago I arrived home to one of California's rolling blackouts. The lights wouldn't turn on. The streetlights were dark. The Internet was down. People in the neighborhood had walked out into the middle of the street and were standing there as if to say, "What do we do now?" There was no light anywhere. All I had was my cell phone, which had a low battery, but there was a little light emanating from it that I used to find my way around. And what I discovered was that a little light can go a long way.

We are living in a very dark time culturally, where a little light can go a long way. Today, an entire generation of young people seems to be adrift morally and spiritually. Research has found that most Millennials, also known as Generation Y, don't pray, don't read the Bible and don't go to church. One expert was quoted in USA Today as saying that if the trend continues, "the Millennial generation will see churches closing as quickly as GM dealerships."

Part of the fault lies at the feet of my generation, the baby boomers. We are obsessed with being forever young. We are the generation that effectively started what we know as the youth culture today, and a lot of us just can't let go. As Glenn Frey of the Eagles joked on tour, "Welcome to the Eagles Assisted Living Tour." That is pretty accurate. Their hit, "Heartache Tonight," could now be changed to "Heartburn Tonight." Our generation has gone from acid rock to acid reflux.

The baby boomers have been so obsessed with themselves that we have forgotten to raise our children in God's ways. We have been so busy rebelling from our moral upbringing that we have raised a generation that doesn't seem to have any moral bearings whatsoever.

That is why the Gospel is so desperately needed today. The Bible teaches that the culture will not get better with time; it will get worse. Despite the fact that we have increased in scientific, medical, historical, educational, psychological and technological knowledge to an astounding degree, we have not in any way, shape or form changed our own basic nature, and we have not improved society.

Sure, our confidence has increased, but our peace of mind has diminished. Our accomplishments have increased, but our sense of purpose and meaning have all but disappeared. Instead of improving the moral and spiritual quality of our lives, our discoveries and accomplishments have simply provided new ways to show ourselves for what we really are: depraved, sinful and wicked.

There was a buoyant optimism in the 19th century, a time Mark Twain described as the Gilded Age. A new philosophy for living was emerging, and everyone felt that as the millennium had just dawned, man literally would build a heaven on earth. It was actually thought that humankind would best nature, and even God, through its version of modern technology.

Can things get any worse? You betcha ~ By Pat Boone

Pat mentions many of the most difficult problems facing us, both in the United States, and in the world. After reading this column yesterday, I pondered on it for awhile, and thought of some more issues that face us. The one thing going on here in the United States that disturbs me the most is that the ACLU, the courts, and the public schools are doing their best to remove God from our lives. That is most disturbing in regard to what Pat has written about and regarding to what Ronald Reagan had said: "There are no human solutions to the world's problems now; there are only divine solutions." If God is not in our lives, then who - or what - will we turn to for helping us through these times? Just sayin'...
... Are things going to get a lot worse than they are already?

Yes, they certainly can – and very well may. Richard Fisher, head of NASA's Heliophysics Division, warns: "The sun is waking up from a deep slumber, and in the next few years we expect to see much higher levels of solar activity. A century-class solar storm could cause twenty times more economic damage than Hurricane Katrina."

I believe Ronald Reagan was right. If there are going to be real solutions to our problems today, we've got to be asking for divine help. No president, no human government is up to the job.

By Pat Boone

My long-cherished friend, Ronald Reagan, during his second term as president of the United States, made this solemn observation: "There are no human solutions to the world's problems now; there are only divine solutions."

Chew on that a few minutes.

In just the last few years, and indeed in the last few months, problems and crises are erupting around the world that do defy human solutions. What can mere mortals do about the rash of cataclysmic earthquakes? Or tornados that sweep in violently from nowhere? Or hurricanes, even when the weather forecasters warn us they're coming?

As the Chicken Little of our day, Al Gore, wins a Nobel Prize for proclaiming "The sky is melting! The sky is melting!" to all who will listen, we learn that a growing majority of knowledgeable scientists disagree with him and also that some of the major "experts" on global warming have been "cooking the books."

And even the most serious believers in eminent meltdown, like the folks at Kyoto and Copenhagen, agree that if we earthlings did everything in our power to curb all carbon emissions for the next 20 years … the combined efforts would only result in less than one degree of change!

So what's the point? Humans really can't do anything about it – but pray, perhaps.

As the unimaginable gusher pours billions in precious oil into the Gulf waters, not only wasting precious fuel but murdering sea life and the ecological balance of our southern and eastern seacoasts, nobody from the president on down or the panicked brass at British Petroleum has been able to stop it. Try as they all will, it seems to be out of human hands.

What about wars and rumors of wars? All the attempts to bring about world peace and harmony among nations have failed miserably. Hatreds and animosities, that often seem inexcusable and pointless to all who aren't involved, roil on unabated and explode in senseless, inhuman violence in the Middle East and elsewhere. The recent high-seas killing by the North Koreans of their ethnic brothers; the deadly debacle that occurred when Palestinian sympathizers tried to run the Israeli blockade; the Taliban killing fellow Muslims and anybody else they can ambush – to accomplish what? Almost all this defies human reason, but nobody can bring it to an end.

Is there anywhere else to turn?

Here in America, a paralyzed president and Democratic Congress can't find any solution to the immigration problems. And they don't seem in any hurry to, either – at least not till after the elections later this year. They know that there are 14 million illegal aliens who have flooded across our borders and that a growing number of states are taking matters into their own hands, since the federal government is not performing its constitutionally mandated duty. But, lest they lose the possibility of adding 14 million new grateful voters to the Democratic rolls, all they can do is rail against Arizona for actually doing something about their own in-state rampage of drug traffic, home invasions, kidnappings and unbearable economic burdens.

They call the Arizona law "unconstitutional" and "racist," without actually reading the words or discovering that the federal laws are stricter than Arizona's. (And so are Mexico's.)

Is there a Solomon in the house?

We are being steadily and relentlessly bankrupted, of course. Instead of treating irresponsible banks and semigovernmental funds (Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac) like regional and local businesses, allowing them to claim Chapter 11 and regroup, swallowing their own self-imposed losses, our fledgling president and his team are subjecting 300 million Americans to trillions of dollars of debt we can never dig our way out of. It's insanity, but they have the reins, and no matter what the majority of citizens say, they are determined to pursue their course to the bitter end.

Overturning many decades of alliance with our close friend Israel, President Obama is blatantly siding with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas. As the New York Times has just reported, Mr. Obama follows his rude and dismissive treatment of Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu – in the White House – by meeting with Abbas and promising him a $400 million aid package for the Palestinian settlements in the West Bank and Gaza – in the White House.

What, in the name of God, can America possibly want from Mahmoud Abbas? What do we owe the Palestinians? Why, if their Arab and Muslim brothers care at all about them, can't they use some of the vast oil wealth they use to attack us to come to the humanitarian aid of Gaza? Why does our president think he should load even more outlandish debt on us to win him points with … whom? And what, again in the name of God, does he have against Israel and its right to do what it wants in its own homeland?
