Armenians, Kurds, Yazidis like us. Supporting them will be just and must be profitable. Now begin acknowledging their histories without reserve or censure and supporting their national aspirations in word and deed.
The presidents of Russia, the US and Egypt and the Pope happen to like Jews — use it. Not by trying to appease them (you don’t need to) but by demanding that they shape up: stop attacking GLBTQs in their own counties, stop trying to rule over other countries, etc. They like you! Use it.
ISIS, the King of Jordan and the Presidents of Turkey, Syria and the PA don’t like Jews or Israel. Let them go stuff themselves. It’s their loss. Ignore them. Israel by now has enough friends. We do not need to beg anyone anymore. We do not need to appease anyone anymore. We do not need to be anyone’s puppet or doll anymore. We’re free!
Instead of trying to appease the rulers of Saudi Arabia, governments of the EU and who knows who else, let them come to us, eager to be counted among our allies. As you know, we have so much to offer.
Ignore the villains like the juntas of Iran, the Lebanon and Gaza. Let our allies deal with them. They won’t get the same attacks as us when they sort them out. And it may help their repressed populations to get rid of their oppressors.
Make your mind up and make the shift! We were held hostage for millennia by other nations, including after our UN-backed declaration of independence. They toyed with us as their plaything. When their rulers came under attack, they accused us so that they could keep themselves out of range. No more!
We have become free to do what is right and become an unrestrained benevolent political world power.
Yes, we were chained up for a long time but the shackles fell off. We’ve broken free! Notice it. Celebrate. Act on it.
You don’t believe it? Don’t believe me – try it. Try if the ice is thick enough. It is.
Mazal tov. Shehechayanu vekiyemanu vehigi’anu lazeman haze!
