West is turning its back on Israel

Success - Article sent! close

While Western civilization seems to be impotent in its efforts to stem the tide of barbaric jihadists who are having their way in Iraq, Syria, Libya and Nigeria, to name a few, and while the West is looked upon with scorn by the mullahs in Iran as they do their dance to the beat of spinning centrifuges, the best united response that the we can offer is to join in the condemnation of Israel for its arrogance in disproportionately protecting its citizens by building bomb shelters and developing a missile defense system.

Outside of Israel, in Europe, Jews unprotected by the Israel Defense Force are menaced and attacked, synagogues and cemeteries are defaced, and Jewish-owned businesses are destroyed. When anti-Semitism is so overpowering that the West condemns the only country ever to stand up to and defeat the jihadists, I can understand why Osama bin Laden predicted that the West did not have the stomach to engage in the battle and would be defeated.
