Israel wants peace, yet it is surrounded by enemies on every side who do not want peace. Hamas, the terrorist group holding political power in Palestine and who is bombing Israel, hates freedom and democracy. These terrorists chanted “Death to America” as they celebrated 9-11.
Unbelievably, our mainstream media and social media elites reveal an anti-Israel bias in favor of Hamas. They accuse Israel, implicitly or even overtly, of human-rights violations, simply for defending itself. They do not expose Hamas for using human shields, violating the human rights of innocent Palestinians. They do not tell the story of the incredible morality of the Israeli military. (Did you know that Israel provided an hour warning prior to bombing a building used by Hamas for terror operations in order to allow time for civilians to safely escape?)
In every way, Israel has demonstrated that it wants peace. From withdrawing from Gaza in 2005, to offering peace talks, to making peace with Egypt and Jordan, Israel has persistently sought peace. Yet its enemies are not satisfied and are intent on the destruction of Israel.
If Israel’s enemies put down their arms, there would be peace. If Israel put down her arms, there would be no more Israel.Israeli proverb
Our administration needs to offer its unyielding support to help Israel defend against those who hate us both, not only because Israel is our ally and a beacon of freedom and democracy in the Middle East, but because God requires us do to so:
“I will bless those who bless you [Israel] and curse those who treat you with contempt. All the families on earth will be blessed through you.” Gen. 12:3
