Last week all of Israel once again made the incredible transition from deep mourning to bounding joy. They first marked the nation's Remembrance Day in honor of all the nation's fallen soldiers, and then moved immediately into the joyful celebration of their 62nd Independence Day.

The rest of the nations of the world never experience the deep emotion the Israelis feel on these two back-to-back holidays. No other nation has experienced what Israel has gone through to become the free and prosperous nation that it is today.

When newly elected U.S. President Barack Obama made his Moslem appeasing speech in Cairo last year, he claimed that "Islam has always been a part of America's story."

I thought it would be reasonable to check out America's story and look for that "part" that Islam has "always" played in our country's history.

"Always" would have to start back when the Pilgrims came by ship to these shores. All the historical reports tell us that the Pilgrrims were Christians seeking a place for freedom of worship. I don't recall that any of them were worshipping Allah. And were there Moslems among the people who welcomed the Pilgrims and helped them celebrate the first Thanksgiving Day? I think they were alll native Americans.

Spring is here! It's the season we all have been waiting for through the long, cool winter. First, we have the crowning of the "March Madness" college basketball champion this weekend. Then we also have the opening of the 2010 major league baseball season. But the best and far more important event of this weekend is the Easter holidays, the three-day commemoration of the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world.

The United States, the United Nations, the European Union, and virtually the entire world are pressuring Israel for a "Two State Solution" to the Israeli-Palestinian Arab conflict. But former Israeli MK and Minister of Tourism, Binyamin "Benny" Elon, contends that what they are really calling for is not a "Two State Solution," but rather a "Three State Solution." His opinions are printed in a book entitled, "God's Covenant with Israel."
