I appreciate this article by Dan, but am surprised to see this information
presented as NEWS; I thought this was understood by all Messianic Jews.

Excellent thought provoking article. We too see these things on the horizon
... and agree prayer and fasting are essential during the days to come. This
is an age which requires much wisdom, discernment and courage.

Outstanding. The USA has only two paths: a quick descent into global compliance
with forces seeking to abandon Israel or continuing to stand up for the God of
Israel, at the very least in our support for her right to exist. Certainly,
more severe and yet incremental judgment awaits the nation who takes the first
path. As an American and a Jew, it is critical to understand that the severity
of judgment will be measured according to the light we have enjoyed! All
Messianic Jews and Christians must undertake to fast and pray in this hour.

Shalom, as the article says, God does not ask much of the world, he requires
only a small piece of His creation for His people. I will never abandon Israel,
the Jewish people wil always be in my daily prayers. The USA is going the way
of saying the God of Israel is the same God of Islam and Budda etc... Big
mistake to conform to the world views just to keep them on their side. If we
turned a cold shoulder on Isreal I would have to turn a cold shoulder on
America. I am a Messianic Jewish beliver that would love to have a reason to
move to Israel.

THanks, Dan, for this one page book report. I would never have bought it
with a title like "Imperial Hubris"! Your point very well taken and

I think that there IS a strong sentiment that the United States should abandon
Israel, and it comes from diverse areas in this country. There are still many
people here that subscribe to the "white is right" theory, and they would be
fine with the idea that the Jews have no right to any piece of land on earth.
Obviously, this theory defies holy scripture and God's promise to His chosen
people. We must, as God-fearing people, continue to appeal to Congress and the
President to support Israel and its sovereignty. Michael Evans, in his book,
Jerusalem Betrayed, spoke to this apparent desire by the State Department to
give the whole nation of Israel to Palestine. It's another look at our
government's willingness to cave to the Arab nations despite the mandate in
Psalm 122:6 "Pray for the peace of Jerusalem; those who love you shall prosper."

Completely right; it is very dangerous to hint ideas about abondoning Israel.
Unfortunately for the earthly thinking it makes sense, even partially the
Church will agree, because she does not know and teach the roots of
Christianity and our absolute one-ness; Jews and Gentiles in God's eye. Only
those understand the dangerous violation of standing against Israel who know
Yeshua in their hearts.

Thank you, Dr. Juster, for pointing out these trends in current foreign policy
thinking. In the updated version of your book with Keith Intrater, there seems
to be a backing away from interpreting Ezekiel 38 and 39 as preliminary to
Armegeddon. Some classical Dispensationalists put this Gog and Magog event
before the 7 year tribulation, forcing the antichrist to emerge to bring peace.
Is it possible that Israel may be temporarily used by the devil to bring in a
false prophet-messiah that will align the world to the European-developed
one-world order? Could portions of an ideologically divided America then be
used as "cities of refuge" or "Goshens" for the trying times ahead for the
international Church and for deceived-betrayed Israel? Who knows what may
happen after the President finishes his term in office.

Praise God! He is sovereign and has promised to perform His Word. Thanks
for more info on this complex situation. We recently found out what prayer
and fasting accomplishes, didn't we?

One cannot be a fanatical Bible-Torah-Tanakh-Brit Hadashah Y'shua Believing
Hebrew-Israelite & not have read that in the end of days Eretz Israel & the
Hebrew-Israelites (G-d only knows which tribes we belong to) BE BE DESERTED
BY THE WHOLE WORLD & LEFT STANDING ALONE! That includes every nation in the
world leaving Israel ALONE! That is why it is so important we as individuals
HAVE TO STAND WITH ISRAEL & BE BLESSED EVEN IN OUR DEATH FOR HIS CAUSE! WE
MUST STAND WITH THE G-D OF ISRAEL Y'SHUA THE G-D OF AVRAHAM, ISAAC & JACOV -
end of story (IF WE PLAN ON HAVING ANY CHANCE OF BEING WITH HIM INTO ETERNITY).

Hey Daniel, You've done it again. Thank-you for your keen awareness of the
real issue's and helping us to see what might otherwise be over looked.
What you are describing is of huge importance!!!! What can and should we
do about so troubling a scenario?
16:05 19Nov04 Werner Halbeck -
I agree with your article fully. My fear is that President Bush will follow
some of the advice offered in this book thereby loosing G-d's protection for

I appreciate the insight. I follow the news in Israel with great interest
since out trip in 2000 to Eretz Yisrael.

Enjoyed this article - as a matter of fact, I enjoyed the whole magazine.
14:55 26Nov04 Jim Wallis -
Thanks, Dan, for letting us know about this book. It prompts me to pray
even more fervently for President Bush and, of course, for Israel. God
15:29 27Nov04 Roger Walkwitz -
Very accurate and very true! We have concluded the same for a long time,
only waiting for the pieces to be put in place. Hopefully the governments
will back off their stated policies and got back to the biblical truth they
both profess to know and believe.

We need spiritual understanding more than political understanding; may God
give us the discernment. Thanks for the article, it will communicate with
the right people - it has with me!

Thank you for this wake up call to fast and pray, amidst a confusion of
international politics that besets many of us as night comes upon the world.
You can never give too many reminders, whether news or history, it's all
relevant to the times we're in and should continue to be shouted from the
rooftops. It's too unbearable to even think that phrases like "resettlement
of the Jews" are being uttered among political leaders--a thought, once
again, too, too horrible to perceive as reality. I gather from your report,
that the author seems clearly to bring out that negotiation has never been
in the Islamic mindset. A clear signpost for the U.S. not to abandon Israel,
don't you think?

Great article. I appreciate Mr Juster for putting this book under the proper
lighting. The best deceptions are a fine mix of truth and lie. This article
based on the book which represents the view of this so called CIA Analyst does
not suprise me. Even worse I know from personal experiences that many people
share the same views as this CIA fellow. However, there are many Americans
who do not share this view...and I would be one of them. I am a Christian,
Patriotic American, and a strong supporter of Israel. Even though I've never
been to Israel...I feel a special kinship with the people of Israel. I will
never forsake Israel and as for my Country...better we should forsake the
whole world than to forsake Israel. I have defended my Lord, the Bible, the
Church, and Israel many times in many different places. I spread the Gospel
with every opportunity the Lord puts before me. I have no fear when it comes
to serving my Lord...I enjoy being his servant...We all must do what we can
to promote the truth and defeat deception in service to our Lord!

I agree completely with your comments! I am a pastor (Emeritus) Church of
God, (Cleveland, TN) with Irish background and a Jewish heart: What more
could I say! God bless you and your work for HIM!
