What’s happening in the USA vis a vis the Presidency, and the NON-STOP Assault on the American Constitution by the American LEFT, and far too many American People who are TOO Stupid to know which Side-Is-Up, is Absolutely Incredible, and is Without Question the MOST Important Issue facing the “FREE WORLD” as we know it.
During Periods of Great Political Uncertainty, Especially throughout the World, as History Demonstrates Without Fail . . . Is A Time When Jews Suffer The Most.
AS A NON APOLOGETIC CANADIAN CONSERVATIVE JEWISH ZIONIST . . . I am always Cognizant of the NEVER-ENDING Threats and Insults against Israel and the Jewish People, especially throughout Europe . . . But at Home in North America as well.
THE HISTORY OF VIOLENT ANTI-SEMITISM . . . Didn’t happen in a Bottle, it isn’t Anecdotal, and it didn’t just happen ONCE. Hatred for Jews extends throughout the History of Mankind, from the very beginning . . . to the writing of the TORAH (Old Testament) . . . to the Ceaseless Attacks on the Jewish State of Israel.
FOR ITS SIZE . . . Israel is an Extremely Powerful Military Country, but so were many other countries, which were also Powerful and Fell to their Enemies. And in the case of Israel, which is in fact just slightly larger than Lake Ontario, which is 7,500-Square Miles, Israel being ONLY 8,000-Square Miles – makes Israel Diminutive in Land Mass Stature.
The Longest Distance between Israel’s North, where the Jordan River Begins (Lebanon & Syria) to Israel’s South (Egypt) at Eilat at the Red Sea, is just 263-Miles, just 27-Miles more than the Distance between Orlando and Miami Florida, which I have driven in under 4-Hours.
The Shortest Distance in Israel from the East (West Bank) to the West (Mediterranean) is just 9-Miles . . . and from the Widest Point (Jordan to the Mediterranean), is all of just 71-Miles, which to Anne and myself being Country People, is nothing more than a One Hour Drive to Downtown Montreal or Ottawa from where we live, for a Restaurant Meal or some Shopping.
WHEN FACING AS MANY AS A HALF BILLION PEOPLE . . . who surround you, and who want you DEAD, DEAD & GONE – Only because you’re Jewish, those Distances provide ZERO Protection in this ERA of High-Tech Warfare, where a Missile, a Fighter-Jet and a Modern Tank can RESPECTIVELY Cross the County in Seconds, Minutes and Just Hours.
AND IT’S NOT AS IF THE REST OF THE WORLD . . . would come Running to Defend Israel, if Israel was about to Go Down for the Count, which we Witnessed in 1973 (Yom Kippur War), when it seemed all but Certain that Israel was about to be Defeated by the Combined Armies of Egypt, Syria and Jordan, while Israel’s “Friends” Debated Israel’s Future at the United Nations.
WHILE IT IS TRUE, that America (Nixon) sent an Enormous Emergency Shipment of Weaponry through the Biggest Military Airlift since, and perhaps even greater than during WWII . . . it is also TRUE – that Israel was either going to Live or Die on its Own Ability to Fight and Survive.
Defending Israel isn’t anything like Defending South Korea, Kuwait, Iraq, Syria or Afghanistan. It isn’t at all similar to the USA Stationing Permanent Troops, Ships, and the Full Force of American Air Power in Europe and Japan. THERE IS NO ONE STATIONED IN ISRAEL TO DEFEND ISRAEL.
THERE IS NO QUESTION . . . That the USA is VERY Generous to Israel in helping to Finance Israel’s War Readiness – BUT IT’S NOT FOR NOTHING.
If it WASN’T for Israel Defeating the Best the Soviet Union (Russia) could throw at Israel through its Arab Proxies . . . it would be the Russians who would be the Dominant Force in the Middle East Opposed to the USA.
If it wasn’t for Israeli Pilots and Tank Commanders, who Beat the CRAP out of Russian Fighter Jets and Tank Crews manned by Arab Nationals . . . the USA and subsequently NATO could NEVER have proven their Weapons’ Superiority without going to War against the Russians Themselves.
And if it WASN’T for the Supreme Spy Network of Mossad and Israeli Intelligence, there is no KNOWING how Europe, the Middle East, and the USA would have . . . and could have Fared in the Undercover Wars, which still Rage-On Today.
AND AS FAR AS MILITARY TECHNOLOGY GOES . . . The Free World Sleeps more Soundly at night because of more Israeli Military Technologies, than 99% of the World will ever know and or appreciate.
BUT IN THE FINAL ANALYSIS . . . Israel is very much on its own, given the Nature of how much the Europeans, the Arab/Moslems, the United Nations and so many others Hate Israel . . . ESPECIALLY WHEN ONE CONSIDERS HOW MUCH THE LEFT & THE WORLD OF ACADEMIA DESPISE THE JEWISH STATE.
EVERY NUANCE AGAINST ISRAEL . . . Is a DIRECT Statement and THREAT Against Jews Everywhere, which I take very Personally for Obvious Reasons.
When the Nazis and Nazi Supporters throughout Europe were SLAUGHTERING Jews, as if Jews were nothing more than Roaches, where Jewish Babies were thrown against Rocks and Brick Walls, Jewish Girls and Women were Raped, Beaten and Mutilated, Jewish Boys and Men were Beaten, Spat Upon, Ridiculed, Humiliated, Tortured, and Set to Hard Labor – and no matter what the Jew Did Before the Holocaust . . . whether the Jew was Man, Woman, New Born, Child, Elderly, Doctor, Lawyer, Baker or Candle-Stick-Maker – THEY WERE ALL MURDERED FOR THEIR “ONLY” CRIME . . . WHICH WAS BEING JEWISH.
If I were Alive during any Period of Accelerated Anti-Semitism, I would be amongst the AFOREMENTIONED . . . during the Babylonian Period the First Temple was Sacked – Jews Were Slaughtered. During the Hellenic Period – Jews Were Slaughtered. During the Roman Era the Second Temple was Sacked – Jews Were Slaughtered. During the Crusades – Jews Were Slaughtered. During the Multi-Inquisitions in France, Spain and Portugal, Jews were Disenfranchised and FORCED to FLEE or DIE. During the Pogroms throughout Eastern Europe, leading to the Holocaust, whole Jewish Villages were Wiped-Out. And during the HOLOCAUST, where and when an entire World Sat on its Hands, Bearing Witness to Jews being Tortured and Slaughtered in Unimaginable Ways and Numbers . . . THERE WAS ONLY SILENCE.
NOTHING HAS CHANGED . . . The World Still HATES Jews, and no matter how many LEFTIST Jews there are in Europe, North America, and even in Israel, who Criticize Israel, because it’s the World’s Fashionable thing to do, just as it was to Self Criticize Jews amongst LEFTIST Jews in Pre-Holocaust Europe and North America – JEWS ARE IN MANY WAYS NO LESS INVULNERABLE TODAY, THAN WE WERE FROM THE VERY “BEGINNING”.
IT DOESN’T MATTER WHAT WE JEWS CONTRIBUTE . . . Since we have ALWAYS Given Far More than whatever we’ve Taken wherever we called Home, whether it was in the ARTS, ENTERTAINMENT, SCIENCES, MEDICINE, MATHEMATICS, PHYSICS, CONSTRUCTION . . . ETC – We made life better for our being wherever we were than worse . . . BUT IT NEVER MATTERED, Because we are Jews – PERIOD . . . FULL STOP!
The ONLY Reason Israel SURVIVES Today, or at least has “SOME” Significant International Support, is predominantly because of the HUGE Number of Evangelical Christians, which account for roughly 25% of all Christian Americans, who are almost ENTIRELY Responsible for the Election of President Trump.
AND DURING THE GEORGE W BUSH PRESIDENCY . . . If it wasn’t for American Evangelicals, when George W Bush had Serious Words with Israeli Prime Minister Arial Sharon, I am not convinced that George W Bush wasn’t about to throw Israel to the Wolves.
I’M WRITING THIS . . . Because History ALWAYS REPEATS ITSELF, and the Vast Majority of People are TOO Stupid and Lazy to know what happened just Yesterday, let alone Thousands and Hundreds of Years – and Just Decades Ago . . . And What Goes Around Comes Around.
OF THE LESS THAN 15-MILLION JEWS WORLDWIDE . . . I doubt if as many as 25% Understand how Vulnerable (they) Jews are in this Highly Anti-Israel/Anti-Semitic World.
IMAGINE THIS . . . Taking-In The Entire Global Population, Jews Account for LESS than 0.2% of the ENTIRE Planet of people, which is LESS THAN TWO-TENTHS OF ONE PERCENT . . . and Israel, in terms of Land Mass – which is the ONLY Jewish Country on the Entire Planet, represents in comparison to Israel’s Arab Moslem Neighbors . . . ALSO LESS than 0.2% (LESS THAN TWO-TENTHS OF ONE PERCENT), and on a Global Scale, the Land Mass of Israel Hardly Measures at all.
BUT FOR THE INDEFENSIBLE REASON OF ANTI-SEMITISM . . . as Canada’s WWII Prime Minister, Liberal Leader – William Lyon Mackenzie King said so Succinctly about the Number of Jews who should be permitted to Immigrate to Canada . . . before, during and after the War . . . NONE IS TOO MANY.
And That Represents The View Point Of Most Of The World – Like It Or Not!
I Don’t Like It . . . And I Can’t Change It . . .
BUT I WILL BE DAMNED IF I WILL EVER SUCCUMB TO IT.
