Is It Possible To Win The War In Iraq?

Aug 17, 2007
Many people are confused as to why the war in Iraq never comes to an end. They want the war on terror to be fought, but they don't like to sacrifice American soldiers' lives.

It is time to look at this war in a Biblical sense. Separate from the modern day prophets who say this war fulfills the end of times.

I would like to look at Iraq and the Arab people in a different spiritual light. Where did they come from and why are they such a threat to the democratic way of life.

The Bible states that Abraham had two sons. Ishmael was the son born through Sarah's Egyptian maid servant. Ishmael became the father of the Arabs and the forefather of the Islam religion. While Isaac was a result of a promise. He became the father of Israel, who would bring us the Laws of Moses and later Jesus Christ the Son of God.

The Jewish faith brought a completely different concept to living in this world. It revealed God's heart towards people. A Father who loved people and wished to teach people the right path to walk in this world with integrity and moral convictions.

The Laws of Moses gave the world a sense of order. Many of these laws became the very platform that Democracy was built from. Giving our world a guide in which to establish justice and to give people individual rights that lead to living in peace with their neighbors.

Rights that freed all of the citizens of the United States of America from the control of England and established our Declaration of Independence. "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."

These words became the beginning to living in a Democratic Nation that gave people the freedom to worship the way they wanted to and to live how they wanted to live. Our freedoms prevented Kings and Dictators from telling us how to live.

While Democracy used the Laws of Moses to establish laws in the United States. The Arabs became the descendants of the Muslims who established Islam.

Both believed in one God. Yet many differences in how they worship arise when we look closely at the teachings as handed down by Muhammad.

The Judeo-Christian Bible teaches people to love our neighbors as ourselves. To do good to our enemies and to pray for those who persecute us. They value and respect all human life.

Islam teaches that they are the only right religion and they are taught to hate Jews and anyone that teaches another god separate from their god.

The war in Iraq has illustrated a sharp contrast in cultural and religious differences. Giving revelation to why God states that the descendant's of Ishmael will be in constant conflict with Israel and all other countries.

Genesis 16:11&12, "'You are going to have a son, and you will name him Ishmael, because the Lord has heard your cry of distress. But your son will live like a wild donkey; he will be against everyone, and everyone will be against him. He will live apart from all his relatives.'"

To fight against a Muslim nation is to put ourselves in a no win situation. Yes, we can set up democratic governments, but we can't change their religious belief system which is at the very core of their existences.

This is the very reason why a civil war is taking place in the middle of the Iraq war. Factions are fighting each other according to how they interpret their Islamic religion and according to the power they want over each other.

God chose Israel to proclaim how to follow Him. While Islam proclaims a god of revenge. A god that demands human sacrifice, and a one dimensional god that kills anyone that tries to make it change.

Islam justifies even using a person as a human bomb to attack any people including their own brothers that comes up against their religion or way of life. You cannot win against an enemy that does not respect human life.

The United States entered the war for the sole purpose of fighting terrorism and stopping the production of chemical weapons of mass production. Now we are trying to establish a government based on democracy.

When the war stops being about protecting our country and changes to a war about which Islamic Religion should governor the country, we can't win!
