Flying back to Miami from Boston this week I passed through airport security and realized that the U.S. financial markets are jeopardy.
A single Muslim terrorist incident in the United States like one which Israel deals with every day could bring our financial markets crashing into a downward spiral into the abyss.
Virtually every company and every investor in the United States is directly and individually threatened by the actions of the Muslim-dominated countries.
All of them. Not just Iran.
We have invasive security at the airport, but we don't have the same awareness as to the threats of Islam to the financial markets.
The airlines have a legitimate interest in making sure of who is actually on their plane in event something should go wrong. No doubt, any airline liability insurer would require it.
But airport security goes a lot further. Basically, a passenger is stripped down as if they were a criminal about to be booked into jail. Nobody, not even an elderly person in a wheelchair, gets on the plane without feeling they just had an endoscopy and a colonoscopy.
The answer is that the threat that a Muslim terrorist would blow up the plane is all too real.
Yet, the US government allows the same Muslim countries that are the self-declared supporters and enablers of terrorism to threaten one of America's most important strategic allies — Israel.
And consequently, a threat to the United States.
All in violation of existing long-standing US law.
With the United States becoming the largest energy producer in the world, the Muslim countries have no positive relevancy to the United States.
The produce nothing that the United States needs, and they contribute nothing to the advancement of the modern technical world.
Quite the opposite.
If you don't believe me, then just book an airline ticket and go through an airline security checkpoint.
Israel, however, is vital to the United States and its financial success.
It is more than United States only true and reliable ally in the world.
The financial security of the United States is dependent on technology and innovation.
Every major technology company in the United States has research operations in Israel.
The innovations created by those companies are what drives their market value. Which then supports our retirement plans, insurance companies, and trading in the financial markets.
Israeli water technology and agriculture advances are critical in enabling the United States to be the largest food producer and exporter in the world. Israeli medical advancements allow the US to claim it provides the most advanced medical care.
Israeli technology is solving some of America's most vexing security interests because Israel has unique core competencies which the United States vitally needs to defend itself from Muslim, Chinese and Russian threats of global domination.
As I recall seeing in one report, Israel's cutting-edge expertise in information technology, research and development, and cybersecurity is crucial to protecting America's national infrastructure and financial market operations from cyber-attack. (Which dangers come primarily from Russia, China, and the Muslim countries.)
These threats and the importance of Israel to the United States is nothing new.
The United States has long-standing law to counter countries which try and retaliate against Israel.
Antiboycott Law under the Export Administration Act is supposed to be used to prohibit U.S. companies from furthering or supporting the boycott of Israel by Arab League countries.
Internal Revenue Code Section 999 requires the Treasury to publish a list quarterly of countries that participate in the boycott of Israel. The current list includes Qatar, Saudia Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates.
Iran is, remarkably, not listed. 'tis a bewilderment.
Companies doing business with this listed boycott countries are supposed to lose key tax benefits.
Why those in Congress opposed to the Iran "deal" ignore applying the existing law is an open question which may be answered by the voters at the ballot box next year.
It seems to me that our current establishment political leadership finds it politically expedient to downplay Islam as a theo-political paramilitary force and prefer to see it as limited to just isolated radical Islamic religious terrorists.
The reality of this, however, is starting to hit home
The actions by Iran and all the other Muslim countries against Israel directly undermines the fragile financial markets in the United States.
