In a recent op-ed for Arutz Sheva author Jack Engelhard makes an interesting and compelling argument that today, Israel is fighting a lonely battle to protect America.
Let’s be clear about this: If you love Israel for the sake of Israel, that is beautiful, but it is a personal choice, certainly my choice. But it is not required.
If you love Israel for the sake of America, this is required. If you care about the safety, prosperity, liberty and security of the United States of America, it is your patriotic duty to support Israel with all your heart, your soul and your might. Israel and only Israel stands at our frontier to fight our fight, which it does every day.
It is a lonesome fight because our leaders in politics have chosen to isolate the Jewish State because it is a Jewish State. We know this. We knew it when Mr. Obama enriched the mullahs of Iran with cash and bombs and when he instructed envoy Samantha Power to snub Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu when he spoke at the UN…
The EU is troubled. Those ministers never miss a chance to blame “both sides” when it is only one side that does the killing.
In fact nearly the entire gutless world keeps shaking hands with Fanatical Islamic Terrorism in order to pretend that nothing is happening, and if it is, let someone else, let Israel – let the Jewish State stand and fight for us so that we can sit back and worry about Palestinian Arabs being so terribly inconvenienced.
Engelhard argues throughout his piece that it is the Jewish State of Israel, alone, fighting against the evil of Islamic terror in the world today. The world (including Obama’s America) has lost its stomach for the fight and now seeks to appease the Islamic scourge at every turn. Muslim refugees are flooding into Europe in terrifyingly high numbers, the Obama administration has promised to take in more than 200,000 new Muslim refugees over the next three years, and every day more pockets of terrorism are found in the West. Indeed, instead of protecting us from the threat of Islamic terrorism, it seems that the governments of the West are actually exacerbating the problem.
Only Israel is confronting the threat of Islam wherever it rises against them, and today Israel is doing more to protect the world from Islam than any other nation in the world. Imagine if there was no Israel in the Middle East to counter the rise of ISIS or Iran. To where would the terrorists of Palestine, Lebannon, Jordan, Syria and Saudi Arabia turn their attention? To the West, of course.
By its very existence Israel serves to protect us from the full weight of terror that Islam can bring to bear. The truth is that, without Israel, the world would be a far more horrifying place.
While liberals may protest – in the world today Israel is the hero and anyone who stands against them is only helping the bad guys do more damage.
