Hard times for Israel

These are challenging times for Israel.

What the world seems to not understand, blinded by its prejudice, naive criticism, and lack of support, is that Israel is in a position to save the planet from this terrorist scourge of the earth, like a metastasizing cancer.

The obvious hypothetical, and realistic, scenario, akin to if rockets from New Jersey were raining upon New York City, would be analogous to Israel's justified retaliation to Hamas' s rockets being fired and aimed upon its women, children, schools, and hospitals.

Acknowledging who the real bad guys are, and directing support where it belongs, would go a long way for potentially threatened societies to collaborate and rid the spreading threat of this mad, hate-mongering, and radical faction who uses the Palestinian people as human shields as part of Hamas's aggressive military strategy and mantra to annihilate and destroy a peaceful little country which never belonged to the Palestinians, in the first place.

From a quote in a recent article by Italian journalist with Il Foglio, Giulio Meotti: “The sagacious American author, Eric Hoffer, gave voice to the most tragic Holocaust-related 20th-century truth: ‘I have a premonition that will not leave me, as it goes with Israel, so will it go with all of us.’ ”
