Must Never Give In To Muslim Killers
Grant Swank, Jr
There are those
who say we should gather in
on January 20 to shout Quit Iraqi Freedom Operation. In other
words, bring home the troops and shut down New Iraq.
They say that we
are hurting ourselves by staying in
. They say that we are not hurting ourselves like the Iraqis are being
hurt, that is, some of them coming under fire. But we are hurting
ourselves by being so presumptuous as to maintain our presence there.
So we are to
leave New Iraq. We are to abandon Iraqi Freedom Operation -- not an
occupation but a liberation. We are to forget that Saddam Hussein, the
bloody, was ousted. We are to give up on a democracy planting in that
land. We are to give in to the Muslim despots elsewhere who hate a
freedom base in New Iraq. We are to turn our backs on the Iraqis who
prize the US-Coalition presence for they believe that in time it will
pay off with new-found liberties.
Those who are
into a panacea on this bit have to be brought back to reality for they
are just that -- panacea marketers.
When will these
mortals realize that we are not in nirvana. We are not inhabiting
perfect Heaven. We are citizens of a spiritually damaged sphere --
Earth. Therefore, there will be wars and rumors of wars. There will be
the need to sacrifice our lives for the freedom of others and the
preservation of liberties in the free nations of the planet?
wishful thinkers appear pious in their platitudes -- for that is all
they have -- platitudes. They have no hold on reality. They don't deal
with facts in this world as it is.
But for the rest
of us who do have a hold onto reality, this Christmas we pray for the
furtherance of peace in New Iraq. We ask the good Lord to bring into
that Muslim country liberties that those citizens have never heretofore
experienced. We ask the free countries of the globe to continue to
sacrifice in order that others may not be ruled by dictators merciless.
So with Christ
-- all the while His parents watching vigilantly for the swords of Herod
-- we too take on the vigilance. We too take on the reality quotient. We
too take on the fact that this world is not perfect and never will be
until the King of Kings rules upon it in His millennial reign.
At this Christmas
we laud those who sing JOY TO THE WORLD for we stand in the gap that
others may know freedom's joy.
There is no need
then to traipse to
to demand of
President George W. Bush that he declare a loss in New Iraq. No need at
all. Instead, that kind of doing is only feeding the Muslim murderers
global. It is standing alongside the Islamic killers international.
Yes. Though those
so-called peace-defenders are marching to DC this December with banners
waving that they are for peace, they in fact are for bolstering the
Muslim enemies' win. They then are not on "our side" -- the
side of democracy, freedom, liberty and peace. They stand with the foes.
They are in reality on the side of giving up that which we cherish –
freedom for others and for ourselves.
Don't let it
