Parallel Nations

Everybody knows there are similarities between Israel and America in some respects. Besides being democratic states and allies, there are surprisingly many more similarities than most don't know about on both spiritual and secular levels.

On a spiritual plane most Jews knew to flee to the Promised Land, which at the time was renamed Palestine by their first holocaust instigators, the Romans in A.D 70. Why did the Romans hate these Jews so much that they slaughtered over a million of them in the first century? It’s because the same source of information that fed Jewish ideals, also influenced the founding fathers of America. It’s the same values that have sparked a threat to the ideals of the Romans, Islamists, Nazis, and today large portions of the Arab world. Because of these ideals they have attempted to slaughter Jews, Christians and Americans, an many of our allies for centuries.

Today, our mighty war on terror finds its roots in nations and persons that violently oppose the following shared ideals between Israel and America, and many of our allies: Freedom of speech, equality for women, free enterprise, the right to own land and businesses without government interference, freedom of religion, and a democratic government.

Another significant parallel between Israel and America is how we gained our independence. We were both persecuted underdogs by the British government. We both fought the British quite violently for our freedom and won! Of course, Israel fought even harder, because not only did they have the British to fight prior to its rebirth, they also simultaneously had to battle the numerous Arab neighboring countries that out numbered, and out gunned them by hundreds to one. To add to the impossibility of winning, there were also numerous loyal Nazis on the run from WWII war crimes who aided their Arab friends as they had pledged to continue to carry out Hitler’s dream of eradicating all Jews and anyone who sided with them.

Most don’t know that Americans also received assistance from Jews in our battle for independence: "They (the Jews of Sint Eustatius Island) cannot too soon be taken care of - they are notorious in the cause of America and France."
--Admiral Sir George Rodney, commander of the British Fleet, February, 1781.

The Jews of this strategic island provided numerous arms to the rebel American fighters and paid dearly for it when Admiral Rodney invaded the island, burned Jewish homes and synagogues, and deported Jewish men back to England without their wives and children.

I thank God that our government has had the wisdom to support Israel thus far, similar to the way the French and Jews supported America in the battle for our freedom—we have been rewarded by God for our support for Israel with prosperity and freedom that many around the world can’t even imagine.
