The Longhouse Coalition's New Covenant Peace Plan - R. Mendelson
The Longhouse Coalition's New Covenant Peace Plan
See, times change. What worked in the past becomes outdated, and a policy that once protected a people can become their collective suicide, if not checked in time. Just a couple months ago THOUSANDS of missiles landed in Israel. Fortunately, not a single one was nuclear-tipped. The Qur'an, however, permits--nay--ORDERS--that Muslims respond like for like if unjustly attacked. An unprovoked nuclear assault on Iran guarantees the next missiles sent by Hezbollah are nuclear-tipped. The paradigm has changed. Peace must be made or certain death will ensue.
And here's where divine intervention could be invoked. The New Covenant Peace Plan (a One Federal Nation solution with two sub-states sharing Jerusalem as national capital) solves the dilemma according to the codes of the Torah & Prophets, AND the Qur'an, too, in a way virtually impossible for Hamas to reject without losing legitimacy among Palestinians. In other words, it carries a straight-from-the-Qur'an and hadiths (other sayings of Muhammad) guarantee Jews have a right to exist in peace in their share of the land. And for Christians who've mistakenly supported a policy leading to inevitable devastation of the Jewish and Palestinian peoples (and Syrian, Jordanian, and Lebanese, too, if not stopped), this solution is exactly as your scriptures require, so you can righteously change your course, too. Many Americans may argue there must be a separation of Church and State, but that's only meant domestically, not foreign policy. Of course foreign policy that isn’t imperialistic respects other cultures and seeks to find ways to work peacefully with different cultures. That's diplomacy.
And in the end, the only path to a real, comprehensive, and enduring peace for the Jewish people, which is the goal of the Jewish lobby, after all. See http://www.LonghouseCoalition.org. Item #22.
