(nablopomo day 11)
Unlike the world viewing reality with a film over its eyes, the truth about Israel's extreme importance to the United States is spelled out--in bright light--point by point, by Caroline Glick in her article, The Plain Truth About Israel. Glick correctly assesses these times as those of Israel-hatred, which is really Jew-hatred in a flimsy disguise. Read the entire article at its source. Enlighten yourself. Do not be afraid. In the end, truth, and right, will prevail.
In other times, Hearst Newspapers White House Correspondent Helen Thomas's demand that the Jews "get the hell out of Palestine," and go back to Poland, Germany and America would have been front page news in every newspaper in the US the day after the story broke.
In other times, had the dean of the White House Correspondents Association expressed such hatred for the Jews, the White House would have immediately removed her accreditation rather than wait three days to criticize her.
In other times, the White House Correspondents Association would have expelled her.In other times, her employer - Hearst Newspapers - would have fired her.
But in our times, it took days for anyone other than Jews and conservatives to condemn Thomas's vile statements to Rabbi David Nesenoff. And she was not fired. She was allowed to retire.
Our times are times of Jew hatred. Our times are times where hatred breeds strategic madness. Our times are times when we need to recall basic truths about Israel and the Jewish people. Specifically, we must remember that the US is privileged to count Israel as an ally - whether Americans like Jews and our state or hate us.
