Freedom: Fight and Pray for It or Lose It
Words fail to describe the brutality unleashed on the Jewish nation. Some of the graphic pictures can only portray just come of the horror where little children and women were targeted, raped and killed.
This should serve as a wakeup call to us Americans. To the danger and threat of this radical set of jihadists who call for the destruction of Israel and the killing of Americans. They are funded by Iranian extremists whose goals is to eradicate Israel and kill Americans. The America equal to thi is 911 when 3000 died. This, however, pales when compared to 911 and on an equal basis, 35,000 Americans would have died.
There are striking differences in the methods used. The 911 attack required only a small group of radical fanatics. In contrast, this operation was planned and funded on a vastly larger scale. They had the funds and capability that was provided by Iran. Think about thousands of rockets being launched, police stations being overrun.
This shows the fanatical intent and the determination of these jihadists whose goal is to kill the infidels. This fanatical notion was instilled by a lifetime of indoctrination where Jews and Americans were portrayed as the enemy and their mission in life was to kill them.
Sadly, we see this happening on a similar basis in many of our schools and universities where America is being portrayed as a repressive society. We are not perfect. Our treatment of the Indians was shameful and we had slavery. This can’t be denied, however mindful of this no nation has our form of government where the rights of the individual are protected as enshrined n our constitution and bill of rights. We have this only because of the men and women who fought and died to protect them.
I believe unless we Americans wake up and take action it will happen here. In many respects Israel is our front line of defense. Much of Iran’s attention and military hardware has been diverted to Hamas instead of us. They also supply many of the rockets to Russia which uses them against Ukraine.
In large measure the Biden administration is responsible for this attack. His foreign policy has been weak and feckless. Starting with Afghanistan, the worst debacle in American history, this set in motion a chain of events that led up to the invasion of Ukraine, the aggression of Russia, and China the buildup of Iran. If we don’t action soon they will have the atom bomb and the missiles to deliver them.
When president Trump was in office it was American first. He clearly understood that peace was never achieved through appeasement and concession, only when you enemy fears and respects you. He destroyed ISIS which killed thousands and repressed many in the middle east and was a great threat to us. Confronted Kim Jong Un of North Korea. He told him had a bigger button and he put two aircraft carriers off his coast. He backed down. Most importantly, he crippled Iran’s economy thereby crippling their development of the atomic bomb. Stopped most of their funding of terrorist operations. He rebuilt our military, America was respected and feared.
Do I need to go on? Iran is awash in funds and Biden has done nothing to enforce the restrictions on Iran to sell its oil. Thereby they have the funds to support their terrorist operations.
Biden made some speeches supporting Israel. I heard no real passion or resolve in them. Tony Blinken, Secretary of State, was asked about the six billion dollars that was released to Iran. he wavered on it saying it was their money. If this is an indication of what their policy is, we are in deep trouble.
