Dear Friends of Israel
It is not yet clear, what the unrest and the radical changes in the Arabic world will bring. One thing appears to be unmistakable however, and that is the fact that the Arab masses are no longer willing to let themselves be manipulated and exploited by the wealthy elite, while they themselves live in poverty. For most people, especially for those in power, the rebellion came as a surprise and seemingly without reason.
“The true source” of the unrest was exposed rather quickly. When hundreds of thousands of demonstrators in Yemen poured into the streets, demanding the resignation of President Ali Abdullah Saleh, he accused his opponents of secretly plotting with the enemy – which can only be Israel in the Arabic mind-set. When Saleh spoke to students and academics at the University of Sana, he swore that the troublemakers were receiving their orders from Israel. He repeatedly declared, "I will reveal a secret to you. There is a command center in Israel, from which the destabilization of the Arab world is being directed. The headquarters are located in Tel-Aviv and it is run from the White House.”
Another accusation leveled against Israel is that the same nerve center in Tel-Aviv, which allegedly instigated the massive demonstrations in the Arab world, has now conspired in a deceitful manner against the insurgents. Therefore, the Arabic news channel Al-Jazeera promised to reveal the identity of the conspirators who enabled the Libyan despot Muammar Gaddafi to use African mercenaries against his own people.
Some samples of the "revelations" by Al-Jazeera that were eagerly re-distributed by the Iranian press and television went as follows: “It has been revealed that Israel has supplied the Libyan ruler Gaddafi with African mercenaries through the arms trading company Global CST, with the authorization of the government in Tel-Aviv, so that he can use them against the rebels who want to overthrow him. According to Egyptian sources, the Israeli company has already supplied the Libyan despot with 50,000 African mercenaries, so that with their help, he can proceed to take action against the protesters who demonstrated against his regime.”
“Previously, the CEO of Global CST met with the chief of Israeli intelligence and Defense Minister Ehud Barak, who gave him the authorization for the action.”
The question as to why Israel would ever support a sworn enemy like Gaddafi was very wisely not touched upon.
For Israel, the idea of being seen by the Arabs as the ever-present specter is the most disturbing part of this incredible pack of lies. Tales such as these are liable to gather momentum as they are expanded and spread. Lies bring blindness and enslavement to the accusers, and distress and suffering to those who are wrongfully accused.
True freedom - the freedom that so many Arabs are currently seeking - can only come through honesty and knowledge and not through dark, fraudulent deception.
Against this backdrop, there is more cause for concern than optimistic hope for the apparent democratization of the Arab world, because the masses allow themselves to be easily manipulated through hatred and distrust of Israel.
Current developments in the Arab world allow us once again to recognize that real peace will never come through human effort, but only through the coming of the promised Prince of Peace.
In Him, I greet you warmly with Shalom,
