Obama Surrenders to Amalekites – You Don’t Know?

Political Correctness Hamstrings National Defense

We must play nice, the liberal progressives say. Obama treats mass murder at Fort Hood as “workplace violence”, instead of calling that massacre what it was: Muslim terrorism. We can’t speak “slander the [Muslim] prophet” Muhammad, he says. Nonsense.

Liberal progressives strive to silence us, to keep us from calling a spade, a spade. We must be nice to people who are mean to us. Really? How’s that working for us?

Let’s take an evil people led by a king named Amalek. Who was he? Amalek was the first enemy that Israel encountered after the crossing of the Sea of Reeds.

From Christian Apologetics & Research Ministry

“Thus says the Lord of hosts, ‘I will punish Amalek for what he did to Israel, how he set himself against him on the way while he was coming up from Egypt. ‘Now go and strike Amalek and utterly destroy all that he has, and do not spare him; but put to death both man and woman, child and infant, ox and sheep, camel and donkey,” (1 Samuel 15:2-3).

The Amalekites, who were descendants of Esau, had been longtime enemies of Israel. They fought against Israel at Rephidim (Exodus 17:8). Apparently, they “entertained a deep-seated grudge against them, especially as the rapid prosperity and marvelous experience of Israel showed that the blessing contained in the birthright [Jacob and Esau] was taking effect.” They were a constant threat to Israel. Therefore, God said to Moses in Exodus 17:14 “Write this in a book as a memorial, and recite it to Joshua, that I will utterly blot out the memory of Amalek from under heaven.”

God lawfully has the right to execute judgment upon anyone. The Bible says that all people have sinned against God and are under his righteous judgment. Therefore, their execution is not an arbitrary killing nor is it murder. Murder is the unlawful taking of life. Killing is the lawful taking of life. For example, we can lawfully take a life in defense of our selves, our families, our nations, etc.

When God authorizes the nation of Israel to wipe out a people, it is a lawful execution due to their rebellion and sin against God. Furthermore, such an extermination can be seen to be merciful by delivering the young into the hands of the Lord and possibly saving their souls by not giving them time to become “utterly sinful”.2 Additionally, further generations that would have arisen from the perverse culture, are likewise prevented from coming into existence and spreading their sin.

Contrasts in Contemporary Conflicts: U.S.A. vs. Russia

Why do Muslim madmen freely attack our country? They don’t fear us. Not one bit. While John “Swift Boat” Kerry and Barack “Dreams from my Father” Obama ‘negotiate’ with Iran and claim to be near a great deal, the leader of Iran leads his people in a mass chant of “death to America”.

Back in the day of Jimmy Carter we were paralyzed by a president and the Democrat party, ignorant of history and the rules of war. Toward the end of his presidency, Carter had somewhat of an epiphany, but by then too late.

Consider the KGB’s response to Muslim terrorists in Lebanon, in response to the kidnapping of Russian diplomats. I quote verbatim from the LA Times, January 7, 1986.

KGB Reportedly Gave Arab Terrorists a Taste of Brutality to Free Diplomats

JERUSALEM — The KGB has adopted novel, brutal and apparently effective methods of dealing with terrorists who attack Soviet interests in the Middle East, an Israeli newspaper reported Monday.

The Jerusalem Post said the Soviet secret police last year secured the release of three kidnaped Soviet diplomats in Beirut by castrating a relative of a radical Lebanese Shia Muslim leader, sending him the severed organs and then shooting the relative in the head.

The incident began when four Soviet diplomats were kidnapped last September by Muslim extremists who demanded that Moscow pressure the Syrian government to stop pro-Syrian militiamen from shelling rival Muslim positions in the northern Lebanese city of Tripoli.

The militiamen, the Jerusalem paper said, did not cease their attacks, and the body of one of the Soviet diplomats, Arkady Katkov, was found a few days later in a field in Beirut.

The KGB then apparently kidnapped and killed a relative of an unnamed leader of the Shias’ Hezbollah (Party of God) group, a radical, pro-Iranian group that has been suspected of various terrorist activities against Western targets in Lebanon.

Parts of the man’s body, the paper said, were then sent to the Hezbollah leader with a warning that he would lose other relatives in a similar fashion if the three remaining Soviet diplomats were not immediately released. They were quickly freed.

The newspaper quoted “observers in Jerusalem” as saying: “This is the way the Soviets operate. They do things–they don’t talk. And this is the language Hezbollah understands.

Six Americans, missing for up to two years, are presumed to be kidnapping victims in Lebanon.

Failure to adhere to just war principles assures an unending conflict. I’m talking about the principle of proportionality. “The violence in a just war must be proportional to the casualties suffered. The nations involved in the war must avoid disproportionate military action and only use the amount of force absolutely necessary.

Force must be met with greater force. This is how wars are won. One cannot negotiate with terrorists or with Amalekites.
