One of the issues that I hold closet to my heart is that of Israel’s right to exist as a sovereign nation. I hear liberals and PLO supporters harp and moan about how they believe Israel is somehow intrinsically evil, but I don’t buy it. Many of my liberal colleagues state that their disapproval of Israel is because they feel the country violates human rights while defending themselves from the Palestinians. The truth is, Palestine is the nation which violates rights on a massive scale. Just look at some of the things that we hold dearest in America, and then compare it to Palestine’s take on the same things. You will see that those who are anti-Israel have no solid proof.
Firstly, let’s look at the rights of women. Israel does not have a dress code about what a woman can wear, and their law does not state that men are above women. They allow women to served in the armed forces, and their laws on the books that women can press charges against abusive partners. In Palestine, women must abide by Sharia law, and men are allowed to beat them without any repercussions. It is obvious which nation stands up for the rights of women, but liberals,even feminist liberals, somehow stand behind Palestine and its sexist laws.
Next, let’s look at the rights of gays and lesbians in the two countries. Israel allows gay and lesbian couples to have kids, and GLBT people are allowed to serve in the military. Across the way in Palestine, gays have to fear for their lives, and many have to flee to Israel in order to be safe. Liberals, who are supposed to stand for the rights of gays and lesbians should be the ones who support Israel the most, but this is not the case. Instead, they support the Palestinians and the hatred that they carry toward women and GLBT people.
Since this is the case,what draws liberals to support the terrorist state of Palestine? The answer is simple, and it is that liberals are brainwashed by the P.R. people of Palestine. Palestine is constantly pumping the lie that Israel is blowing up its women and children, but the truth is that Palestine is the culprit of the killings of women in children. They constantly send bombs to some of the most crowded areas in Israel to kill as many people as they can, and it shows just how cold the Palestinian state can be.
So what should the United States due to defend Israel, its only ally in the region? The answer is whatever it takes. Israel has helped us in the past, and we must help them. If that means sending troops there if they are attacked or medical help to aid the victims of those who are injured by the Palestinian bombing that occur, then so be it. They are a democratic nation, not an Islamic dictatorship, and we should do everything in our power to help keep the one glimmer of democracy in the region shining for years to come. We have been blessed as a nation with freedom, and we should spread this blessing throughout the world.
