A New Arab Spring?

islamAs President Obama plans his Middle Eastern travels this Spring to Israel, Jordan and Egypt, it would be well if his advisors would be honest with him about what really prohibits true peace in that central part of our world. It is not geo-political. It is religious.

The primary problem is Islam’s teachings to eliminate or subjugate all perceived “infidels” or non-Muslims. Their holy book and spiritual leaders proclaim a god that demands hatred and violence against both “infidel” non-believers (especially Jews and Christians) and even fellow Islamists, who may not follow their sectarian religious teachings or practices. They are bound by the chains of their religion, and as a people, can never fulfill God’s destiny for them, until they are freed.

Born-again Christians grieve for the Muslim Arabs, who have brought a terrible curse upon themselves because of the promise God made to Abraham. In Genesis 12:3 God said He would He bless those who bless Abraham, Isaac and Jacob’s descendants, but He would also curse those who curse the children of Israel.

What kind of Arab Spring might have developed in the last 65 years, if Muslims had accepted Israel’s right to exist and then concentrated on building modern nations and a great civilization along side it? That’s the perspective President Obama should present to the Arabs this Spring.
