|Great article, asks the right questions. What distinguishes Newt Gingrich is that he always looks at a given topic within its large historical context. Agree or disagree with him, you can't help but learn something useful from everything the guy writes.
I also posted the article below at FFI, but you know how stuff migrates to the back pages there. I think this Gingrich article so well defines the problems of the 21st century it should stay toward page 1, for awhile.
Personally, I see the 21st century unfolding exactly as had the 20th, but instead of Germany, it's Islam as the expansionist. It's happened about every 400 years in history, this trend of Islam. 638AD, 1073AD, 1517AD, 1967AD have been the overrunning-of-Jerusalem dates. So we're in yet another of those trends. My Youtube videos on "TIMELINES" track the past.
But this is about the present. Since I've already written extensively in my webpages about the larger historical timeline from Adam of which this trend of Islam is a part, I'll not talk in this thread (though I'll peek in from time to time).
Here's the Gingrich link: click here.
God needs no defending, and always begs the premise. For belief of any kind, always needs self-auditing.
