I find it extremely frustrating at the outcome of the latest conflict between Hamas and Israel. Here we have a zone controlled by terrorists firing rockets at Israel population areas. There was no provocation on the part of Israel for the firing of 3,000 rockets at their territory.
The Israeli military went to extreme lengths to avoid civilian casualties when bombing various buildings. They would call people in the targeted structure, telling them to get out. A giant firecracker device would be dropped on the roof. After people were given enough time to flee, the building would be imploded.
Despite Israel’s efforts to minimize the death of civilians, Israel was still portrayed as the aggressor by the left and the liberal media. Even as Hamas rockets were raining down on Israeli cities, the Biden Administration was asking Israel to stop responding to the attacks.
If terrorists operating out of Mexico were shelling our southernmost cities, the US would carpet bomb Mexico. No other nation on planet Earth is held to such a strange standard regarding warfare. When 911 terrorists were found to be operating out of Afghanistan, we invaded the whole nation.
As soon as the fighting stopped, Israel allowed supplies to flood in the Gaza strip. Many nations have offered large sums of money to rebuild the areas destroyed by the fighting. I don’t see the point of saying, “Here is another $10 billion to rebuild,” and handing over the cash. We know from their past track record that the funds will be used to build more rockets and tunnels for attacking Israel.
Antisemitism in the United States is more pervasive than it appears, said Malcolm Hoenlein, vice chairman of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations.
“It’s worse because the majority of incidents are not reported,” Hoenlein told The Times of Israel at a meeting with staff in Jerusalem alongside the Conference’s chair Dianne Lob and CEO William Daroff.
“We get reports all the time of it. I see it not only in my own community but from rabbis who call me and others. And often, the police will not classify it as a hate crime because then the FBI has to come in, and the FBI doesn’t necessarily want to because it’s a lot of paperwork, et cetera… But they’re encountering more hostility, and the vast majority of incidents don’t go reported even though the number of reports is increasing sharply.”
It is quickly becoming politically dangerous to stand with Israel against Islamic terrorists. New York City mayoral candidate Andrew Yang recently tweeted in support of Israel and condemned Hamas.
Under pressure from local pro-Palestinian activists and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Yang issued a retraction, saying that “My tweet was overly simplistic in my treatment of a conflict that has a long and complex history full of tragedies.” He added that he “failed to acknowledge the pain and suffering of both sides.”
The May 28 New York Times front page featured photographs of the children killed in Gaza and Israel during the recent fighting under the title “They Were Just Children.” The newspaper does not typically put images of children killed by US forces on its front page. The New York Times is owned by a Jewish family, but it has always sided with Israel’s enemies. It covered up the Holocaust during World War II.
CNN is under fire for having hired a writer who posted several times on social media that he believes the world needs another “Hitler.” “The only reason I am supporting Germany in the finals – Hitler was a German, and he did good with those Jews!” Raja wrote during the 2014 FIFA World Cup. CNN has fired Adeel Raja, but only because people on the right made a stink about his comments.
The world is going to get a new Hitler in the coming days. He won’t be a foe of God’s chosen people. He will be the man that comes to ‘save the world.’ I think the growing hatred of Jews will be the driving force that forces Israel to make a peace pact with the devil. The Antichrist will betray Israel, but God comes to save His people from total destruction.
“Oh that the salvation of Israel were come out of Zion! when the LORD bringeth back the captivity of his people, Jacob shall rejoice, and Israel shall be glad” (Psalm 14:7).
