Let My People Go!

At the end of Dickens’ ‘Tale of Two Cities’, Sydney Carton states “It is a far, far better thing I do than I have ever done, and a far, far better place I go to than I have ever been”. When that was published in 1859, little did anyone know how relevant it is to today.

Carton was making a sacrifice for others, and for the ideal of freedom. President Biden needs to take heed of this in the context of his ‘iron clad support’ of Israel. I do not believe that that support is anywhere close to ‘iron clad’. Not when he mouths this verbiage on the one hand, and stabs Israel in the back with the other.

Emboldening Iran with sanction relief, support of radical jihadism (via Obama) and loss of American deterrent, has led to the deluge of drones and missiles fired at Israel one week ago. Indeed, a nice (temporary) coalition of the US with Israel, the UK, Jordan, and others, achieved 99% kill success against these munitions, but the cost and degradation of defensive capabilities is not being talked about. If Iran were to relaunch today, the results would be devastating. There would be no early warning this time.

What is Biden to do? Take a clue from Dickens. A sacrifice might have to be in order. A political one. Stop catering to the Islamic Jihadist base in Michigan and elsewhere, and do what’s right! Yes, he may lose the election. But America will be stronger with deterrent on their side. And it may prevent, what might be slaughter of half the world’s Jewish population that would dwarf the Holocaust. Americans are preoccupied with the price of vegetables at the store, and worry about the future of social security, but far greater dangers abound. If Israel goes down, the West is next. Preview of coming attractions: check out our college campuses. The price of grapes pales by comparison.

First, Mr. President, LET ISRAEL WIN! Take the leash off and finish off Hamas. Civilian deaths not-withstanding, a removal of the bad guys would open a new future for Palestinians and Israelis. Apply resources to the north against Hezbollah and stop the insanity Iran has created there.

Then, station B-2 bombers in the region, naval assets, and re-apply drastic sanctions on Iran’s economy. This will severely hurt their adventurism in the region.

Finally, cut of all funding from Qatar to US universities and freeze the accounts of NGOs that finance jihadism on our campuses. Enforce the decision by the US Supreme Court last year (US 60-23, Counterman vs Colorado) that says, in part, that incitement to violence is not commensurate with free speech under the First Amendment.

Mr. Biden may not win an election, but will be remembered as a great president. It may be a far, far better thing than he has ever done.

Mr. President, LET MY PEOPLE GO!

Let this be a Happy Passover for all of America.
