I don’t opine on the election itself because I don’t live there, I am not (yet) subject to the terrorism and jihad of the entire Arab world, and I don’t vote there. I have enough problems with legislators here in America who undervalue Israel and its contributions to the world in every way; who are swayed by the faux narrative of the Arabs; who don’t see the threat of Jihad to the entire culture and security of the Western world; and who put our security below their utopian delusions and policies.
The Prime Minister of Israel has the toughest job in the world. When he is subject to the hallucination of peace and appeases the Arabs, the latter only ratchet up their demands. When Israel responds to murder and terrorism, the entire world and its “calumnists” shriek that the response is “disproportionate.” If he tells world leaders that Israel’s security and how to achieve it is Israel’s concern, he is called rude and aggressive and a hard-liner and inflexible and those words come from supposed friends. Who would want that job and that responsibility?
Benjamin Netanyahu does and so does Naftali Bennet. I wish them well.
For the best take on Israel’s politics I go to my e-pals David Hornik and Yoram Ettinger and Steve Plaut and Caroline Glick. They live there and they vote there. God bless them.
