As many of you know, the modern state of Israel was slowly re-established in the last century after the fall of the Ottoman Empire with the help of Western colonizers for whatever religious sentiments they may have had at the time. The problem now is that over 75% of the known oil supply in the world is now concentrated in the hands of devout Muslims around the world who disagree with this decision, and charge us accordingly.
Today, we are faced with negotiating with a hostile cartel over our economic lifeblood, and continue to fund Israel directly with arms and cash. Most of our trade deficits are due to the price of oil and all of our manufactured goods and services has the price of oil factored in.
Furthermore, the idea of Armageddon, a totally destructive fantasy war to signal the end-of-times, is hoped by most Christians to be soon staged somewhere in the middle-east featuring the righteous (them) versus the forces of evil. Is this not the greatest blunder in colonial history? What is the best resolution?
Personally, I believe as long as Israel exists like it does today, zealous Christians will fan the flames to war and we will continue to suffer embargoes like the one in 1973 in conjunction with a pan-middle-eastern war that same year. I consider it an ethical duty to gradually relocate all Jewish people in Israel to wherever they want to go (which is already happening for those who can afford to leave). Also, I would propose making a UN neutral zone for religious pilgrimage/worship at the shrines on different days. Otherwise I fear that terrorist atomic bombs will trigger a long-term crusade/conflagation that will make Vietnam look like a mere conflict again.
As usual, I favor no religious viewpoint or reasoning in this discussion.
