Accomplishing Absolutely Nothing - Israel This, Israel ThatSubmitted by bigmikedude on Mon, 08/19/2013 - 11:01
I know there are many here that are obsessed with Israel. Some it even seems have become entirely consumed by it. A one track mind, stuck on Israel. But there comes a time when blind obsession must be challenged with logic. Which in some around here at times seems to be lacking.
There are only two things that persistently posting anti-Israel information does:
1. Absolutely nothing.
2. Twisting the knife in the liberty movement from within.
Let's start with number one:
Accomplishing absolutely nothing.
I live in one of the very ventricles of the heart of the bible belts in America. There is a church every mile or so. I have learned from experience here and abroad, that you can argue about Israel, and aid to it, until you are blue in the face. And the consistent result is- Congratulations! You have just been completely ignored, and have gotten no where what-so-ever. Welcome to the brick wall of the community of the Lord.
To a great percentage of religious America, to bad talk Israel in any way what-so-ever, you might as well be denouncing God to them. Their reaction to the conversation almost instantly turns to fear of God - Fear of God's wrath on them for not standing for the holy land unequivocally. And you just got turned off like a TV. You have accomplished nothing.
You cannot, and will not, waver these people's faith. In short, you are pissing into the wind, and banging your head against a brick wall trying to "inform" this group of your plight with Israel. Success might be better achieved by focusing elsewhere. And secondly, this group doesn't hang out here anyway. They probably hang out with Santorum, Graham, and the like. So posting about it here does nothing much either other than stroke your own ego maybe.
To this demographic you are an unsaved heathen only desecrating the holy land, and trying to lead them astray like the serpent. Plain and simple. You are accomplishing absolutely nothing.
Which brings me to number two.
Twisting the knife in the liberty movement from within.
Because of number one, the only other thing you really accomplish, is destruction of the liberty movement from within. When such a large portion of the voting public is religious enough that no matter what Israel the holy land does, it is God's will, and you run around this movement bashing Israel, you have just prevented that many more people from ever even considering joining it or supporting its favored candidates.
Which, in light of the above, leads me to believe it possible that many here posting the stuff, might even be the very so called 'Zionists' they describe and trash, deliberately posting the anti-Israel stuff, planting these huge Neon Sign Hate Billboards all around the movement to destroy it from within. Knowing full well the effect of it on the massive voting demographic in number one - those outside of the movement looking in at it. If not, well then you're definitely making their mission easier, if that is part of their mission.
My point is simply, if you are not a destruction plant, you need to find another avenue. Because your obsession with Israel is exactly that - an obsession. One that does nothing more than damage. One that leaves you pissing into the wind, attempting to "inform" those that simply will not hear it, accomplishing absolutely nothing, other than poisoning, destroying, and staining this movement in the eyes of that large portion of the voting public.
I've grown to such a tired state of the pointless Israel crap around here, Pro and Con, that I really don't care what anyone thinks.
