Dangers and Solutions:

In Gaza, The West bank regions, Southern Labanon, and Syria the tactic used to stall the recent Israeli efforts in Southern Lebanon are now being implemented in these regions. Deep bunkers, massive tunnels - sometimes stretching for 15 miles plus, smuggle Iranian arms, and long term traning by the Iranians of field grade military officer corps for the P.L.A - spell crisis for Israel's existance.

Moreover, with the problematic situation of American involvement in Iraq - American support once depended upon American swiftness to assist as it did in the Yom Kippur War is just not there. Even worst is the additional difficulties caused by the People Republic of China's additional interest in securing more and more of the oil reserves in Arab world for its growing economy - and willingness to supply anything to the Arabs to further this interests.

Christian fundementalism is crawling into end days with anxiety ridden hope of seeing a major confrontation at you know where. So their messiah can reappear along with the rapture.

The idealisms of a youthful face of Zionism has been greatly deminished, and campus activities world wide indicate a socio-political retreat- while others are just disappointed and are tired out.

Now is the time for something to be interjected.

Free Thinking:

Freethought holds that individuals should neither accept nor reject ideas proposed as truth without recourse to knowledge and reason. Thus, freethinkers strive to build their beliefs on the basis of facts, scientific inquiry, and logical principles, independent of the factual/logical fallacties and intellectually-limiting effects of authority, cognitive bias, conventional wisdom, popular culture, prejudice, sectarianism, tradition, urban legend, and all other dogmatic or otherwise fallacious principles. When applied the philosophy of freethought holds that, given presently-known facts, established scientific theories, and logical principles, there is insufficient evidence to support the existence of supernatural phenomena.

Thus in review of the region of Israel there is the history of the Armenians and their Holocaust. The Kurds and the historic denial of their statehood, and thus something else rises from the murkeyness in which our present history is trapped in. We have real friends in the region in which we are not aware, and then the attentions of the world on the Palestinians comes into sharper focus. More importantly it brings to attention the traditional bias of the New York City Zionist Organizations' which now endangers the existance of the State of Israel.

It is from the Zionist seed once planted B'Arez, then those who are graving for freedom and liberation within the Middle East Regions now has found hope. The Palestinian vision is not in the interest of Palestinian liberation, for they will loss, and in certain regions have lost the freedom they could or once enjoyed under Israel's influence.

What signifys this is that the passion for Zionism must be infused into others who are unknown allies, and then our liberation will spread.

We too must grow likewise and seek greater interchange of free thought more than ever so our youth can find their own page in Jewish history.
