President Barak Obama’s response to the kidnapping and murder of three Israeli teenagers by Hamas was an offer of condolences and an admonishment to refrain from any actions that might “destabilize the situation.”
Like Neville Chamberlain who thought he could be nice to Hitler and survive, so does President Obama think peace on earth will be realized if we can all just get along. His reluctance to defend our friends and even American citizens abroad has emboldened the enemy—and yes, Islamists are our enemies, just ask them. He has given them the time and space they need to build an army capable of challenging the West. In fact, his actions pulling out of war zones and leaving our equipment and weapons behind are actually arming our enemies to war against us. One has to ask, “Whose payroll is he on, anyway?”
Forget about refraining from actions that might destabilize the situation. We must stand with Israel to defend her against radical Islam, then we must take the war to the enemy before he can bring it to our shores.
The world has known a hundred year wars before, and this might be another one. We must eliminate those who are bent on destroying us, while we teach principles of liberty and democracy to their children until the culture of tyranny and death is replaced by a culture of liberty and life. This will not be accomplished in one, or even two generations. We must start now for the benefit of our posterity, or we will find ourselves all under Sharia law. There is no middle ground, not as long as Islamists are bent on establishing their caliphate, and that they are.
Israel needs more than condolences Mr. Obama. Israel needs an ally ready to fight side-by-side with her to defeat our common enemy. Let’s pray our next President will understand that, and that Israel will survive until then.
