Our national leadership has made an art out of denying bias on our part in the Middle East conflict.
Question: Are we taking sides and should we?
One administration after another has declared that they are unbiased in their intervention between Israel and her enemies. Our chosen role as mediator between the two parties, is foolish…we should recuse ourselves. Precisely because one party (Israel) values and practices freedom as a democracy, and the other (PA) is a sworn ENEMY of freedom. To be true to our values of democracy and liberty for all men…we SHOULD be taking sides…but alas…fecklessly, we’re taking the wrong one…
Obama and his hand-puppet Kerry have done a brilliant job of appeasing the opposition to freedom.
Putting aside Kerry’s hot mic moment, taking a cat-like swipe at the Jewish State…he’s done a pretty fair job of expressing stupidity:
–In November 2013, he encouraged violence against Israel by saying, “I mean, does Israel want a third intifada?”
–He added, “The alternative to getting back to the talks is the potential of chaos.” (that’s a nice “attaboy” for the terrorists)
–In February this year, in Obama’s bullying fashion he said, “For Israel there is an increasing de-legitimization campaign that has been building up. People are very sensitive to it, there is talk of boycott and other kinds of things. Are we all going to be better with all of that?”
–His infamous “apartheid” statement: “A two-state solution will be clearly underscored as the only real alternative. Because a unitary state winds up either being an apartheid state with second-class citizens – or it ends up being a state that destroys the capacity of Israel to be a Jewish state.” (Aww, you did Jimmy “Dhimmi” Carter proud, who has said, “Apartheid is a word that is an accurate description of what has been going on in the West Bank, and it’s based on the desire or avarice of a minority of Israelis for Palestinian land.”)
The majority of the American people stand with Israel and their right to exist in their land. Our leaders, however, have joined the “we are the world” chorus for the poor, persecuted, faux people group known as the “Palestinians”. The Muslim battering-ram against Israel. And here’s how:
–Every time they refer to Jewish land that the “Palestinians” desire, they call the Jewish presence “occupation”.
–They demand Israel make all the concessions in any negotiation process…forever giving of her land and only receiving violence in return.
–They condemn Israel when Israel responds in self-defense to unprovoked brutal attacks upon their civilians, by “Palestinians”.
–They ignore terrorist attacks on innocent Israeli civilians by the PA (Palestinian Authority or PUG) and the “military” wings of their terror groups, Fatah and Hamas.
–And they condemn Israel for building on Jewish land.
This is the way weenies hate. They are too craven to take sides out in the open. And sadly, this has been the pattern of behavior by our leaders (styled after Europe) for some time. They play a semantical game and take sides with the enemies of freedom…in order to appear “fair” on the World stage (like this has an iota of value).
We continue to play this moronic (and dangerous) game of pretending to be equitable to Israel’s enemies (and ours)…when the only fair and just thing to do is to side with Israel and freedom. NOT with fools and fiends.
A word to the prudent, from Solomon (Mishlei – Proverbs 14:24): “The crown of the wise is their riches: the folly of fools, idiocy.”
And a PERNICIOUS idiocy at that.
Shalom through strength…
