Why Israel fights

Why Israel fights

Today’s is the 64th anniversary of Israel’s founding.

Against seemingly insurmountable odds, Israel survived the War of Independence, and then some.  Now it is engaged in an existential struggle with the Islamists of every persuasion and location, and their anti-Israel allies in NGO’s, “peace” groups, academia, the media, and boycotters of every stripe.

There’s a lot that could be written about why Israel fights.

I’ve pointed out that anti-Semitism and brutality live on in the Arab world as fiercely as ever, manifested in Tahrir Square and the streets of Tunisia in what mistakenly is described as a “spring.”  In fact, it is a darkness as old as recorded mankind.

We know the fate of the Israelis should Israel not fight, or fight unsuccessfully.

So Israel fights on, and celebrates its 64th birthday.  Because there is no alternative.

Amen. Thank you, Bibi. You are a great Israeli patriot! May the Lord pour blessings onto you, and protection, on Israel, G-d’s chosen people. Shalom.

    Bibi gives good speech, but his actions say something very different. Ask the good honest people in Beit El, Migron, and Chevron, who know that any day now the soldiers will be coming to drag them out of their homes in order to appease the enemy. If Bibi really was a patriot he’d give the order to stop it.

      Chevron?? If there was anything to your statements, why aren’t you publishing the names of those good honest people of Israel who hate their government?

      You’ve already posted your anti-Israeli garbage. Netanyahu is a legally elected prime minister of a legal state of Israel. How he runs his country is the business of Israel voters, not for consumption of foreign armchair politicos. How dare you criticize a foreign leader of a foreign government? Have you no shame?
      As former Palestinian Walid Shoebat continues to say on his blog “IDF soldiers are the most honor bound, polite military in the world and that reservism many times gets them killed”.
      Israeli soldiers are honor bound to their government like American soldiers once were in the 1940’s. With tears flowing they have had to obey orders to eject FAMILY members because they are loyal to their code of honor to their leaders. Israel fights to defend her land. Netanyahu continues to need prayers for the peace of Jerusalem. He makes impossible decisions in the ongoing conflict.
      How about eminent domain which is a law in these United States? Aren’t you concerned that the Obama government can confiscate legally the land you paid and have a title to? It has happened.

Amen and may the USA stand by Israel’s side forever! In so many ways, Israel’s existence is a metaphor for the continued existence of the USA!

Happy Birthday, Israel! May the Lord protect and defend you.

Professor, have you seen this tidbit from Bibi? “Oh, we know. . .”

God bless Israel.
I stand with her.

Not a Jew here, but: In 100 years how will the culture of the world have evolved from where it is now? Obama wants it to become more islamic. What rational westerner can prefer the islamic states to Israeli culture? Obama is out to destroy our country and culture.

Here’s the enemy, in their own words.

And yes, they want to kill you, too. Every Jew. Every kafir. Every Muslim that disagrees with them. Every woman that wears a T-shirt. Every man that gets a haircut. Every person who smokes. …. The adherents to this covenant bring chaos to every place where they gain any significant influence.

Their list of murder-and-torture victims is long and mostly Muslim. That is because, once you justify the isolation and murder of any one class of human beings for trivial reasons, there is no limit to who gets killed. We saw it in the religious wars of Europe, as well as in World War II under the Nazis and afterward under the various brands of Communism and Socialism. Once a society abandons justice, and allows the killing of people for trivial reasons, the killing never ends.

There will be peace between Israel and its neighbors when Muslims read and repudiate the Hamas Covenant.

Happy Birthday, Israel!

I disagree with Bibi on one point … tens of millions of friends around the world? You’ve got over 200 million friends just in America alone!

The future does not look good for Israel. I’m 70, so there has never been a time I can remember when the “Arab-Israeli” dispute was not a major issue in international relations and American foreign policy. There were a couple of moments when it seemed as if the dispute could end peacefully. The first came with Sadat’s turn to the West, having exhausted Egypt’s military options vis a vis Israel, and the subsequent peace treaties between Israel and Egypt and Jordan. The second came with the Oslo Accords and the subsequent development of a quasi-autonomous Palestinian Arab government, the PA. There were still serious problems with the PA, of course, and Arafat’s irresponsibility was disgraceful — but there was some hope.

No longer. The upsurge of Islamism — in its “moderate,” radical and violent forms — guarantees that hundreds of millions of Muslims will for some indeterminate period of time thirst to drive the Jews from “al Quds.” I wish Israel well but fear that the next 64 years will be a whole lot tougher for the Jewish State.

This is the one cliché that bears repeating endlessly: If today the Arabs put down their weapons, tomorrow there would be peace. If today Israel put down its weapons, tomorrow there would be no Israel.

    In one respect the current situation is like the 30s. For whatever reason many governments and people have bought into the idea that Israel is the problem. Settle the Israeli/Palestinian problem and all will be well.

    The betrayal of Czechoslovakia did not stop Hitler and the NAZIs from the subjugation of Greater Europe and the attempt to conquer the USSR because it was part of the divine plan (Mein Kampf)

    Even the complete removal of Israel will not stop Muslims from attempting to reclaim all lands once ruled by Islam nor as, a prelude to compete domination, from insisting on the implementation of Sharia law where Muslims reside. It is written in either the Koran or Sunnah.

“Israel may be civilization’s last stand. Even if it fails, it was a nobler effort than pretending that nothing was wrong while heading out the door to other continents where it would take longer for the Jihad to reach their grandchildren.”

It’s theirs to lose. Hopefully, Jews have learned from the mistakes of their ancestors and predecessors, and will not resign to liberal excesses. Whether it was the natural or God’s order, they defied it and were held accountable. Today, they have a chance to pursue the right path. So far they have been successful and to Israel and Israelis: Happy Birthday!

“Why Israel Fights” – seems obvious to me, looking back at the history of modern Israel. 1948: Arab nations invade, promising to kill all the Jews; 1956: Britain and France double-cross Israel on Sueze Canal seizure, Arab nations want to invade but Britain and France won’t go for that, instead throw Israel to the dogs – you should pardon the expression – in the U.N.; 1967: See 1948; 1972: See 1948. Sounds like they don’t want to be killed off and have reason not to trust the West – at least certain nations in the West – and so are likely to act to defend their people without asking permission from anybody. Oh, yes, don’t forget the attempt to make Europe “Judenfrei”. Remember that one, the mass murders that “didn’t really happen” according to Iran and the rest of the Arab world plus a number of American liberals and progressives?

I’m for rolling back the borders of Israel to historic locations … specifically, to the time of Solomon. You know? All of samaria and all of Judea and then some.

This is the land given to the Jews by G-d. It is not for the so-called Palestinians to take.

Happy Anniversary, Israel! You rock so hard!

Stand firm Israel. The G-d of Abraham will never abandon you… HE will establish HIS Throne in your land!

DocWahala, will never take sides against Israel – as for me and my family, we shall serve the LORD.

I’ve posted this before and will post it again, as it remains the truth.

Both the far left liberal Socialist-Marxist ideology and arab Islamic Muslim Ideology of radical religious militant hatred and intolerance, is insidious evil itself. They are both of the same like minded intolerance and hatred of Israel, the Jewish people, America, the US Constitution, and of Freedom and Liberty, which is why they align with each other, like Hitler and Mussolini.

The Truth is- No One has the right to tell someone else who can and cannot live and be free on this earth. That is the Truth and the Right, and No amount of numbers of people who advance this evil will ever make it legitimate. They only make themselves the agents of this evil, just in greater numbers.

Of course those who are the agents of evil, do not care about humanity and being wrong, they only care about incessant and relentless destruction of anyone and anything who they do not like, or does not agree with them, in whatever form they choose their hatred and evil to take..

This is why we, the Patriotic Conservative America people, must never stop the fight against this evil, and is why we must continue to be the leader of the free world in this fight around the world, as well as at home.

This is why I also say we are all now Conservative Jews, as when one denies the Freedom and Liberty of even one person to live and be free, via whatever means of intolerant hatred and evil they implement, then they deny Freedom and Liberty to ALL Free and Freedom loving people all over the world.

And at this point in time, I would also say that israel is the only light of Freedom and Hope of Humanity in this world, as long as Obama is the US President, and the UN mandates Israel’s demise Internationally. Numbers of evil agents do not, I repeat Do Not equate to being right, only being numerous in evil agents.

So we Conservatiave Patriotic Americans, must rally to Israel’s side as the inevitable conflict erupts into all out war between Good and Evil, ie; the world against Israel.
