America must stand with brave Israel

  • Follow Letters

Just wondering: How is democracy working out in the Middle East?

People are loose on the streets. Anarchy reigns. One peaceful nation remains, and now the United States is ready to throw Israel under the bus by giving Gaza, the West Bank and half of Jerusalem to the Palestinian Authority -- a.k.a. a "revived" Fatah and Hamas terrorist coalition, organized under Mahmoud Abbas, America's "former" friend, but only while the friendship proved beneficial to his cause of deconstructing Israel.

No other ally like Israel exists in the Middle East, which shares Judeo-Christian principles and protects freedom of religion to all peoples within its borders. What other nations deign to do so? An attack on Israel is an open attack on Jewish and Christian religious principles. This is a holy war, and the Muslims will not stop until every knee is bowed to their prophet!

The American public and Congress need to provide unprecedented support of Israel. Americans must be made to understand the concepts of Hamas violence, the terroristic tactics of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, the degree of Syrian oppression and the threat to the world of a nuclear Iran. As an ally of the United States, Israel fights the war on our behalf in all of these arenas.

Appeasement hasn't worked. Israel has made concessions and has given away land for peace -- piece by piece by piece.

If the Palestinians were interested in peace, they would not glorify terrorism and suicide bombers, nor delegitimize Israel in world forums and universities.

A true peace partner wouldn't celebrate the birthdate of the state of Israel with rioting in the streets; a true peace partner would acknowledge and accept Israel as a Jewish state through both words and actions.

Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal and Fatah leader Mahmoud Abbas signed a reconciliation agreement in Cairo for the purpose of showing a "united" Palestinian front with plans to request admittance into the United Nations as a member nation and establish a Palestinian state inside Israel without Israeli negotiations.

Neither party acknowledges Israel's right to exist, nor have the two groups decided who will lead this united effort. The Hamas Charter calls for Islam to "abolish" Israel and for Muslims to "fight the Jews and kill them." It further proclaims, "There is no solution to the Palestinian problem except jihad."

I pray the United States will have the courage and strength of conviction to exercise a veto in the Security Council and keep the last stronghold of peace intact in the Middle East.

if as our bumbler and chief

if as our bumbler and chief advocates that the starting point is the 67 boundaries b/4 the 6 day war..we must ask this question why was israel attacked in 1967 if it was just over disputed lands there was not that dispute then.. we all know the answer the arabs countries in the middle east want israel destroyed..period..every time israel gives land for peace the arabs break the deal and start attacking israel. we should defend israel and keep the only democracy alive in the middle east.

Don't worry everyone. O'Bama

Don't worry everyone. O'Bama has aided in creating an "Arab Spring". It is guaranteed that we will have peace and democracy throughout the Middle East. Sunshine & lollipops for everyone!

Don't worry about Israel being attacked and being forced to retaliate. Starting a nuclear war over there? And you thought Japanese fallout was a problem.......

Don't worry about the "peaceful" & "well-intentioned" muslim brotherhood. I'm sure this will turn out just great.

Don't worry about the radicals who want all Jews dead.

Don't worry about the radicals who want to end the Western way of life.

Don't worry about the muslims who run childrens shows in the middle east that call Jews disgusting and call for their death.

Don't worry about our open Southern border where muslim radicals are able to stream through daily.

Don't worry about middle eastern nations like Iran working with Venezuela to point missles at us (with nuclear warheads? who knows?).

All you liberals need to worry about is that the muslims are anti-republican......anti-conservative....anti-Israel. They stand against freedom, democracy and independence so therefore you support them.

Newsflash to liberals. The enemy of your enemy is NOT your friend. When its all said & done, they'll want to hack off your head too.

This will turn out badly for Western society. You liberals had better wake up and stand with proven and real democracy.

This video explains the whole

This video explains the whole link between socialists/liberals and the Middle East to bring down the USA, Israel & Great Britain. In this video they explain how they worked with (totally innocent & peaceful) muslim brotherhood & islamic extremists in the midle eastern revolutions to unite arab world against USA, Britain & Israel.

WAKE UP LIBERALS! You are being used. I don't believe that most of you really agree with THIS. At least I hope not.

A good answer but it does not

A good answer but it does not answer my question. Do you not want any of your money spent to protect you?

Is this is the same Israel

Is this is the same Israel who fired upon the USS Liberty killing scores of American Sailors?
Is this the same friend who has had countless spies (Jonathan Pollard) steal US secrets?
Who had prior knowledge of 9/11 and didn't tell it great friend and protector who send billions of welfare payments? Fox and other mainstream media outlets (I have the clips) reported after 9/11 about a white van with cheering occupants who were arrested filming as the planes flew into the WTC - later proven to be Mossad Agents.

Please Google "Lavon Affair" & "USS Liberty" and we can see how much a friend Israel is.
