Terror in the Middle East Painfully Furthers Freedom
Militant Muslims are losing their war against freedom with every terrorist and cry for hate. The passion to be free is in the DNA of every man and woman since God gave free will to Adam and Eve. That passion for freedom super seeds a choice of religion. This is the age when the Muslims and Middle East nations are being drawn into the world community, like it our not. They won't be able to control their people like Communists and Dictators under freedom. It will evolve and take time but the world community led by the USA will teach them by pressure or what I call "Tough Love."
The Libyan planned terrorist attacks of our consulate will serve as another wake up call for our President to have a strategy beyond "hope and change" and to expect more incidents that requires our leadership to rise up from his slumber before more lives are lost.
Freedom works against Sharia Law acts of terror, shame, control and fear. True Freedom is rooted in Christianity which teaches love, faith and forgiveness. Just a year ago it was the young people of Egypt who demanded freedom through their demonstrations. They were inspired by America's willingness to eliminate a dictator and murderer in neighboring Iraq. They reasoned if they could depose their dictator and have freedom they could get jobs and create a free enterprise system of prosperity.
The Egyptians still face faced 24% unemployment with the number for young people as high as 70% (numbers equal to our unemployment rate in the 1929 Great Depression). Through friends who have immigrated to the USA and internet they believe America is still the land of opportunity. In early protests in Syria, a young girl was interviewed by a NY Times reporter and she said if Steve Jobs was born in Syria with Freedom, "Apple would have been headquartered here." (Steve Jobs' biological father was a Syrian who immigrated to the states).
While the Militant Muslins want to create fear and hate in the hearts of people and destroy any passion for Freedom, they can't succeed long term. They may win some battles but they can't win the war.
If you asked our founding fathers in America, who in 1776 King George IV called "Militant Christians, " they knew that freedom came from God. Since 1776, three fourths of the world has declared freedom through their constitutions. China saw the collapsed of Russia and the eastern block and the boom in Hong Kong and South Korea. So they has declared Economic and Religious freedom while Political freedom will follow soon. They like economic prosperity. Mao Zedong would rollover in his grave if he knew what his countrymen were doing.
As Paul Wolfowitz, former Deputy Secretary of Defense said "America went to war in Iraq to Free Muslims and people of all religions." We are not nation building but bringing Freedom to suppressed people. God gave each of us gifts and talents and when governments don't allow people to exercise those gifts, many lives are wasted. Dictators and Communists governments are a dying breed because we are being brought together for a divine purpose with ultimate harmony and joy
Free Enterprise will create jobs in the Middle East, especially as they lose oil jobs and have to create their own industries. As this takes hold, Militant Muslims will not be able to gather unemployed youth or thugs from the streets to throw rocks and create acts violent for a day...when people have jobs and are busy are feeding their families.
Just like 9/11 woke up America to go the Middle East, so will the world is waking up to the needs of the Middle East to drive out the "haters" and bring the economic freedom that God wants to achieve through a smaller world engaged together and finding harmony. Its no win situation for the Militant and evil people who want terror as a way of life. Long term economic success is driven by applying Biblical principles and ultimately that's what will bring stability to nations.
