Daniel 11:5 says that the “King of the South”, the Arabs, “will grow strong.” They have since the term “petrol politics” became so important. The Bible said that the Arab’s “hand would be against everyone” and that he would be as a “wild donkey” (Gen. 16:12). But God promised to multiply the descendents of the Arabs (Genesis 16:10), and bless them. He planted their tents on the oil wells of the earth! But the 22 nations surrounding Israel are determined to exterminate her.
The Islamic Mein Kampf
Americans know that the United States has been engaged in the War on Terror for the past 10 years. But how many Americans can answer the question of why radical Muslims hate us so much?
The United States has spent nearly $1.3 trillion on the war effort – a figure that dwarfs the Vietnam War ($738 billion), the Korean War ($341 billon), and World War I ($334 billion). And the United States has lost more than 6,000 troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The West is almost as in love with improving the world, as the Muslim world is with conquering it. These two contradictory impulses, the missionary and the warrior, come together in the Clash of Civilizations.
The Muslim world has two approaches to the West; underhanded deceit and outright terror. The practitioners of the former are considered moderates and the latter extremists. The West has two approaches to the Muslim world, regime change and love bombing. With regime change we bomb their cities to save them from their rulers and with love bombing we shamelessly flatter and appease them in our own cities to save them from themselves.
