Israel, our only friend in the Middle East

Benjamin Netanyahu website

Rupert Murdoch : I am not Jewish but...

As Israel prepares to inaugurate a new government led by Bibi Netanyahu, I think it's time to take stock of what is at stake for the whole world in the Middle East. If terrorists are allowed to wreck havoc with the democratic State of Israel, then who knows who is next? Israel is the one and only and best democratic ally of the United States in the volatile Middle East. This brave little state has held back an onslaught of Arab attacks ever since her fledgling rag tag army defeated the combined armed forces of six Arab nations in 1948.

Israel was established by a United Nations resolution in 1948 in accordance with international law. At a time when the United States and the Soviet Union could agree on very little, both permanent members of the Security Council spearheaded the drive to create Israel and allow the Jews who had been ravaged by the Holocaust to return to their ancestral lands. It was a great day for mankind when Israel was born, not to mention the fact that it was a fulfillment of biblical prophesy.

Fast forward to today and we find that Israel is being relentlessly attacked by the left in America and elsewhere for merely trying to defend herself. Israel had had enough of unprovoked rocket attacks aimed at her innocent civilians from Gaza by the terrorist organization Hamas. So Israel finally responded with a military campaign in an attempt to stop the rocket attacks. That attack was carried in full accordance with international law which allows sovereign nations to defend themselves from military attacks.

Well, as we know, there were a lot of civilian casualties in Gaza in spite of Israel's best intentions to avoid collateral damage when possible. Contrast that with the deliberate aiming of rockets at civilians carried out by Hamas.

So what happened? The left in the United States and elsewhere went ballistic, and they have not let up since. But thank God no amount of harassment from the far left can shake Israel's resolve to defend herself against those who would destroy her if they could. As we know, the charter of Hamas specifically calls for the destruction of Israel, no matter how long it might take.

Yet the left shows very little outrage at the many atrocities committed by Hamas including intentionally locating rocket launchers aimed at Israel in school yards and in hospitals. The lunatic left knows no shame, and they will not be satisfied until Hamas gets it's wish and accomplishes the destruction of Israel.

Here is wishing Bibi good luck and Godspeed as he assumes his new awesome responsibilities. I call upon the Obama Administration to honor the long standing bipartisan support of Israel that has been a hallmark of American foreign policy for the past sixty years.
