America & Israel Enter the Death Zone

Stanley Zir

Leading up to the midterm elections, all that we have heard from all parties are concerns about our domestic policies, while, in reality, the greatest threat to our nation is President Obama’s foreign policy. Incredulously, with Iran being moments away from securing a nuclear-armed state, calls for the destruction of its nuclear infrastructure have fallen on deaf ears. During the past couple of years, Glen Beck, Sarah Palin and Mike Huckabee have expressed their deep concern about our nation’s domestic policy and our freedoms being usurped by the forces of tyranny from within.

With the greatest of respect for these wonderful patriots, they must now address Obama’s disastrous foreign policy that will end America’s leadership in the world and bring our nation to her knees. If we are to stop Obama from writing America’s obituary, we suggest that you email Glen, Sarah, and Mike, and ask them, for humanity’s sake, to publicly call out for the immediate destruction of Iran’s nuclear infrastructure.

Liberty’s Last Call

When there is an aggressive plan to put out liberty’s flame of freedom, ours must be a more aggressive plan to keep the beacon of liberty lit. America: If you want to continue to have a country worth fighting for, demand an end to sanctions and call for the immediate destruction of Iran’s nuclear infrastructure. If not, there will be no tomorrow, because our Beacon of Liberty will have been extinguished in this world.

With everyone concentrating on jobs and spiraling debt as the central issues of the November elections, the defining moment that will challenge the very foundation upon which western civilization rests has come like a thief in the night to rob humanity of the only hope it has for securing this world as a sanctuary, free from the forces of oppression that the governance of tyranny brings. Our opportunity to avert this cataclysmic occurrence is quickly slipping through the cracks while a living nightmare is only moments away.

While we may live another day to fight against the establishment of a mosque and state satellite shrine in the shadows of Ground Zero, if Iran were to go nuclear and/or gain the technology to defend its nuclear infrastructure from attack, the entire free world would become Ground Zero. Why? Because the greatest enemy of freedom will have tested and broken America's resolve! … Who will be left to prevent the globalization of a tyrannical ethic if the greatest enemy to Israel and freedom has tested and broken America’s spirit?

Then we will have crossed the point of no return. America will have lost her identity as the advocate for the advancement of freedom in this world, thus inheriting all that she has fought against since the birth of our nation. Then, no tears of regret will be able to disperse the carnage that would descend upon the people of our nation and the free world by those who are intent on raping our soul, until the very notion of liberty as a way of life is literally ripped from the pages of history’s accounting.

In every war, there is a tipping point that determines the eventual outcome of the conflict. In the Civil War, it was the Battle of Gettysburg; in World War II, the Battle of the Bulge. In America’s global war against terrorism, this moment has arrived. With facts on the ground confirming that Iran is only a moment away from becoming a nuclear-armed state and world power, we are at a flashpoint. We can no longer ignore this fact or continue to wish it away. We must finally face the reality that we have reached the tipping point in a global conflict in which victory for freedom over tyranny in this world lay in the balance.

Who is going to stand up for freedom and stop Iran? President Obama? He has not even placed Iran on liberty’s most wanted list. (Incredulously, the Tea Party has also not made the destruction of Iran’s nuclear infrastructure its top priority. Tea Party Nation: Where are you? Aren’t you America’s “Give me liberty or give me death” party? Or, is your cup half full?)

The frightening fact is that there is a Democratic majority in both Houses of Congress that fully support Obama breaking bread with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Iran’s fanatical leader openly calls for the eradication of Israel while his country is only moments away from becoming and securing a nuclear-armed state. Meanwhile, President Obama sits idly by, allowing the totally ineffective UN to speak for him, as he continues to express his desire to negotiate directly with this megalomaniacal sponsor of state terrorism, without pre-conditions.

Furthermore, who is going to stop Russia and Syria from delivering a missile defense system to Iran that would secure its nuclear sites as impenetrable fortresses immune from an attack by America? Several weeks ago, U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates and his Russian counterpart, Anatoly Serdyukov, met to find common ground on issues critically important to all free nations. They failed to do so, and two days later, it was reported that Russia, defying the U.S. and Israel, is selling sophisticated anti-ship missiles to Syria, a satellite of Iran that is vigorously arming the terrorist group, Hezbollah.

If President Obama is unwilling to confront Russia and stop her from delivering a missile defense system to Syria; if he is unwilling to prevent Russia from converting Chavez’s Venezuela into a nuclear-armed state, why would he would stop Russia from arming Iran with an anti-missile defense system that would seal the deal in protecting Iran’s development of nuclear weapons, should Russia choose to do so?

Is Obama prepared to do what President Kennedy did when the nuclear missiles landed in Cuba? Did Kennedy first attempt to win the hearts and minds of the Communist nations when the missiles arrived in Cuba? Did he get permission from the United Nations? No! The very survival of America and the free world was at stake, and he did not wait even 90 days.

With Obama at the helm of America’s ship, it is shockingly apparent that we have far fewer than 90 days to prevent the occurrence of a devastating global event that would pose a direct threat to the security and survival of the free world. This is why Congress must immediately re-convene and pass a “Kennedy Resolution”, stating that the transfer of advanced missile defense systems to Iran would be considered a direct act of aggression against the United States of America, and that such shipments will be intercepted and destroyed before reaching port.

In order to preserve our Union and save Israel, it is time to effect an immediate change in our nation’s political discourse that now has all political parties concentrating on jobs and the economy as the key to righting America’s ship, while our Odyssey of Freedom is about to slip below the waves.

While concerned citizens held tea parties and attended town hall meetings in protest of our nation’s financial and political policies that are leading to spiraling debt…America faces a far greater threat, and a far greater debt – one that she will never be able to repay – if the actions of those who sacrificed their lives to secure our freedoms were all in vain. What legacy will we leave our children if in the face of further economic instability that would be caused by destroying Iran’s nuclear infrastructure, we compromise our core principles and bargain away the soul of our nation when our beacon of liberty was about to be extinguished in this world?

That is why we must not permit any legitimate protests concerning Obama’s domestic policies to distract us from eliminating the immediate threat of enabling Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to drag the free world into the vortex of his madness. Protecting the principles of governance that sustain the freedoms which guarantee our prosperity is more important to our ultimate well-being as Americans than our concerns about the cost of oil or jobs – no matter the temporary financial straits into which we might descend.

The question is: Do our politicians believe that in our present economic crisis, and in the face of further economic instability we would experience after attacking and destroying Iran’s nuclear infrastructures, that attacking Iran is not a viable option?

If so, and if Obama does not take immediate action to prevent Iran from securing a save haven for its nuclear program, Americans must unite and arise with the same fervor as our Founders, who declared that they would rather be penniless than have their spirit broken by those who were determined to rob them of their freedoms and derail liberty’s grand design.

After witnessing years of restraint in the face of terrorist acts against our strong ally, Israel, the oil extortionists of the Moslem World have good reason to believe that Americans do not have the stomach for this cause of action. Politicians from both sides of the isle seem to concur, for they now believe that spreading liberty and ending tyranny in this world is no longer a luxury that America can afford, and that, as our President has declared, an ideology is no longer operable or effective, but dangerous, because it incites our enemies. So, Israelis, get used to living in close quarters with people who want to cut your throat and neighbors who are bent on your annihilation. And, Americans, get used to living in a country that has lost its soul. Is this a foreign policy that represents America’s core values?

No matter what financial burden we must bear, we must not sign on to policies that will lead to the destruction of the free world for fear of angering those who control the lion’s share of the world’s oil supply. What is the vital interest we must protect that declares a Jewish life is worth less than a barrel of oil? And, what vital interest is so valuable that we would abandon all that we stood for and fought against for more than 234 years.

The time for us to honor a foreign policy that is dictated to us by oil extortionists of the Islamic World, in exchange for financial security and a false promise to Israel of a peaceful co-existence with Islamic tyrannies, must cease. Such continued behavior would lead to America’s descent into obscurity. America cannot serve two masters in this world and ever hope to survive.

You do not have to be a professional gambler to see that the clock has already struck 12:00 midnight in a game with an opponent who has not only stacked the deck against Israel, but has prepared a field of death for her and America as the final score. Only a fool cannot see the handwriting on the wall. Who will shout out what our Founding Fathers are screaming from their graves? “Now is the time to fight back; destroy Iran’s nuclear infrastructure now.”

If we are to be victorious, we must now dictate what happens between the hands of the clock; we must not let our enemies determine our fate. Yet, it is obvious that our politicians are not keeping time by the same clock as those who are determined to destroy America, Israel and the free world.

While some pro-Israel politicians argue that Israel has time to wait until there is a new President in the White House, or at least until the results of the 2010 midterm elections have been determined, America and Israel no longer have such time. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad does not have to wait to act. However, we must wait until Congress receives approval to take action against his nation while the permanent end of our way of life is imminent. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad must not be given the opportunity to accomplish his unequivocally-announced and vigorously-pursued goals.

“We the People” have every right to secure this world as an eternal sanctuary free from the reign of fear, terror and oppression that the governances of tyranny brings. If our politicians do not see the severity of the circumstances we face and do not call for immediate action to end the Iranian threat, we have every right to march into D.C. and shut down the capital with peaceful acts of civil disobedience until our demands are met.

Restoring America’s Honor
Reclaiming Her Just Purpose and Noble Cause

Every nation has a mandate - a protocol - that defines its purpose and cause. For America, it is her stance against tyranny. Simply put – one knows what a nation stands for by what it stands against. Yet, America is about to cross a line from which there is no return; she is about to abandon her mandate that has defined her just purpose and cause and made her exceptional amongst all the nations in this world – her stance against tyranny.

No matter what Obama has done until now; no matter what he has taken from us so far; and no matter what financial burden we must bear, there is one thing we cannot permit him to bargain away – the soul of our nation. Here we must draw the line. While we may recoup our financial losses from President Obama’s domestic policies, we can never reclaim the soul of this nation if we embrace a foreign policy that forfeits our stance against tyranny in this world. Such a foreign policy would not only lead to the destruction of the moral fabric that binds America to liberty’s decrees, it would bring financial ruin to our nation.

In 1776, America’s Founding Fathers proclaimed that they would never again be bound by any of tyranny’s decrees. With that as their benchmark, they crossed the bridge to freedom and entered liberty's universe, whereby a new Constitution replaced tyrannical heresy as the sovereign of a new Republic. It was not just any Republic that they created, but a “Never Again” Republic in which the individual’s right to stand up and defend himself against any forces that would subdue his inalienable rights was activated, and, with it, the conflict between a new nation of democracy and nations which embraced totalitarian systems of oppression was set in motion.

Yet, America, a nation that time and time again has risen from the ashes of her own iniquity to serve liberty’s just purpose and noble cause; a nation that has subdued the raging forces of tyranny’s evils that would condemn humanity to an endless nightmare of terror and oppression, now has her noble mission called into question by the President of the United States of America, and with it, our Founders’ mandate is being challenged – the quest to secure liberty as the foundation to eternally protect against the globalization of a tyrannical ethic.

It is apparent from President Obama’s speech to the Islamic World in Cairo in 2009 that he was not prepared to honor America’s obligations to rescue Israel from those who wish to destroy her, thus abandoning the mandate that has defined America’s just purpose and noble cause since the days of her Founders to defend liberty’s domain.

In the Islamic World, freedom is considered a grave threat to the ruling powers, because it would grant the average citizen the right to question the ethics on which the foundation of their social order rests – a foundation that was built exclusively on the teaching of Allah. Since such inquiries would be considered an insult to Allah, so would the doctrine of democracy that opened the door to such inquiries. Yet, our President throws praise on Islamic nations that embrace Religious Tyranny as their protocol and remains ominously silent regarding their agenda to undermine the institutions of transparency that democracy brings. More shockingly still, in many cases President Obama has cast aside these Islamic tyrannies’ complicity in egregious acts of human rights violations against their own citizens and other people in the world by co-opting their transgressions with endless declarations of apologies for America having the arrogance to stand against these nations in the Islamic world – nations whose constitutions honor the subjugation of the human spirit.

Maybe President Obama believes that we must not be disrespectful of nations whose cultures are more than 1500 years old. After all, America is a nation that is less than 250 years old. How can we not avail ourselves of the wisdom of these nations whose culture has brought about an endless reign of pain upon their own citizens? How arrogant of us!

This is troublesome when one considers that President Obama has declared Israel, a nation that champions freedom’s cause, equally culpable in a conflict with these nations who use their lands to advance a governance of absolute power throughout the world.

President Obama: How many Americans have died to ensure our freedoms and the freedoms of others throughout the world? Sir, how can you, as our President, champion a foreign policy that would align our nation with countries and peoples who are determined to eliminate those precious rights? How can we, as Americans, observe this act of betrayal and not scream out in disgust! Do you expect us to just sit here and watch everything we have fought for, for more than 234 years, be dishonored, desecrated and defiled?

Hence, although President Obama constantly lectures us on justice, world peace and democratic ideals, no part of the ideology he embraces can support and uphold such a noble undertaking as that which America’s Founders undertook. For, he has declared our Founders’ quest to put an end to the endless cycle of religious and secular oppression that has plagued humanity since its inception an ideology that is dead in the water. He claims that calling out the names of tyrannical enterprises in order to alert and unify our nation of the real dangers these de-facto criminal ventures pose, only empowers our enemies’ resolve. Should we have abandoned our aggressive stance in our fight against the mafia simply because we were afraid to offend them and feared that they would then grow in ranks? I don’t think so.

It is the absence of those who would stand up to fight against any who would bring down a reign of tyranny and terror on people that is the greatest threat to all of our liberties. The threat is certainly not the heroes among us who would be willing to die to defend against such fiends, as our detractors would have us believe. If the leader of the Free World does not speak out and stand behind what our Founding Fathers stood against, what does he stand for?

It is becoming increasingly clear from his foreign policies that President Obama has abandoned the failsafe strategy that is needed to win the war against terrorism. One must remind our President that without benchmarking America’s departure towards building a world filled with greater transparency as the goal that must be reached for seeking final resolution of these types of deadly global conflicts, we will fail to uproot the seeds of derision that have plagued all of humanity throughout history.

It seems that President Obama is confused as to whether he is the President of the United States of America or the head of the United Nations, an international “peace” organization. Unlike the United States, the United Nations is not mandated by decree or charter to end the reign of tyranny in this world in order to achieve a peaceful co-existence among nations.

In concurrence with the United Nations, President Obama advocates that by maintaining open dialogue with fascists and their supporting cast of totalitarian scoundrels, he can achieve the same end. Does the President of the United States really think that giving totalitarian governments an equal vote in determining the outcome of world affairs is the gesture of friendship and trust that is needed to avoid future world conflicts? What is the price we pay for partnering up with criminal enterprises and extortionists to protect against the outbreak of a third world war? Ask those who found themselves in a partnership with the Mafia. The answer is the same from all parties involved: the loss of their freedoms, and economic ruin.

It is not the religious and secular totalitarian nations of the world that have forgotten their mission in undermining our free marketplace of ideas, but the leader of the Free World who has abandoned his pledge to defend and stand against the forces of treachery and deceit. Thus, such eloquent speeches that President Obama delivers, no matter how noble and impressive, only resonate with hollowness.

There can no longer be any doubt that Obama’s current foreign policy will not only lead to the destruction of Israel, but to the moral and financial collapse of America and the free world. That is why, in the name of our Founding Fathers and all who sacrificed their lives so we can enjoy the freedoms we have today, “We the People” must demand the renewal of America’s foreign policy that once again honors freedom and our nation’s Protocol – our eternal stance against the advancement of governances of tyranny in this world.

In order to take back our nation and restore America’s honor from President Obama’s betrayal of the sacred trust that our Founders afforded us, “We the People” must first reclaim ownership of that vision of hope that they left to us 234 years ago, when in America, they would launch that which would become the greatest experiment in the history of humankind – the quest to secure liberty as the foundation to eternally ensure the protection of all people's inalienable rights against any and all who would release tyranny’s deadly venom into the hearts of humankind.

It is this crucial shift that will reset America's image as the stalwart of liberty’s decrees in this world in the minds of our own people, our allies and, most importantly, in the minds of those nations which no longer fear our resolve -- the ones which are intent on Israel’s destruction.

The question is: which politician will throw down the gauntlet and give the citizens of Israel and America the confidence to resist the pressure from Obama, the EU, the UN and others who insist that they show restraint in the face of an impending nuclear holocaust, while demanding that Israel and America negotiate in good faith with Islamic tyrannies as if they were viable partners for peace.

Again, I urge you to write to Glen Beck, Sarah Palin and Mike Huckabee, and request that they uphold America’s mandate that honors freedom and denounces tyrannies by calling for the immediate destruction of Iran’s nuclear infrastructure. Keep the pressure on until their voices are heard! Thank you.
