With the President’s recent address to the American people from the Oval Office, now, more than ever, his comments about the existence of Radical Islam would be vital. In his brief speech, the President stated the name of ISIL twelve times in a thirteen minute speech. While outlining the strategy of involving America’s “strongest allies”, Israel was left out of this list and was not even acknowledged; at all. Why would the President choose to repeatedly identify “ISIL” opposed to “ISIS” and not even acknowledge Israel as an ally of America? To get a better understanding, it is imperative to understand what the very name of ISIL represents. Originally called IS, “The Islamic State”, was then termed, “ISIS”, “The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria” is now deemed, “ISIL”, “The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant”. The Levant encompasses the land directly East of the Mediterranean Sea stretching southward towards Egypt, North to Syria, and into Jordan. One critical country is at the center of this region: Israel. By repeatedly declaring ISIL, the President is in essence, agreeing with the vision of ISIS to eventually encompass the land of Israel. This is not good.
There is a narrative against Israel that is continually being promulgated. As the Church, we must remain vigilant in our prayers, both for President Obama and for the peace of Israel. Hear the entire report to see how so many of these dots that we are seeing today come together to reveal a clear picture of what is happening, and so much more.
