Mr Netanyahu goes to Washington

The world is in crisis.

Across the desert sands of the Middle East, Islamic terrorism is running rampart.  We have the Islamic State using their Sharia law to invent ways to butcher people so cruelly, that leaders of the Spanish Inquisition would have nodded in admiration.

We also have leaders of our so-called allies like Saudi Arabia who pretty much have the same laws – although, of course, because they are such warm friends with the United States, we’ll just overlook their human rights abuses, decapitation of heads, the removal of limbs and their flogging of anyone who even questions them.

Across the plains of Africa, the fascism of Islamic terrorism is also running wild, doing their best to turn the green grass of the most beautiful continent on earth, into a red sea of blood.  This time it’s in the form of Boko Haram, who inspired by the lack of action against the rest of Islamic terrorism prevailing around the world, are encouraged to carry on with their own massacres and abductions and murders.

Europe is on fire, as their policy of appeasement rapidly comes undone.  And the terrorism that had been happening for years against Israelis which was perfectly legitimate, because of you know… the occupation and the oppression and the refugees and the genocide and the donkeys and the weather and whatever other reason you can come up with…  has now arrived in Europe, invading cafes, synagogues, kosher delis, newspaper offices, museums and schools.

The Ukraine has fallen apart, despite the sterling efforts of John Kerry, who has yet to achieve ANYTHING as … as… what’s his position again??    American diplomacy is leading the effort against the Russians, and okay we’ll allow them to have that part of the Ukraine, but if they make one more move…  Oh – they did?  Okay – well, if they make just another move… Oh – they did again??  Um, well… okay… then we’ll… put sanctions on Putin so that he won’t be able to visit Disneyland!  Take that Putin – no trip through Space Mountain for you!

Then of course, there is Iran, whose lead negotiator in the nuclear talks – is John Kerry’s Best Friend Forever!  Iran is an integral part in the fight against the Islamic State – even though… aren’t they the Islamic State themselves??  In their negotiations with the Americans – actually it’s with other countries as well, but no one cares about them – they have successfully been able to counteract the brilliant and shrewd negotiating skills of John Kerry, so that even though the demand was for 4500 uranium enrichment centrifuges, Kerry successfully negotiated to give them 6500!  And even though the demand was for 15 years of limited ability to produce nuclear material, John Kerry made it 10!  What a brilliant strategy – give them more than what they want – they’ll never see it coming!  I’m hiring him next time I want a salary increase!

I hate to break it to John Kerry, but while he’s drafting his Noble Peace prize acceptance speech, Iran is continuing with its nuclear program in underground bunkers.  And while John Kerry can speak about a new era of co-operation, Iran is hanging an effigy of Obama in a Tehran square as it celebrates the Islamic Revolution’s 36th anniversary.  And while America might speak about regional co-operation, Iran is threatening….again… to wipe Israel off the face of the earth.

So while the world is in crisis, the leader of the free world – not Iran, the other one – America, has got its finger firmly on the pulse.  Unfortunately, it’s not the pulse of the world we live in.  Because while Obama makes speeches about the crusades and flowers and bumblebees, he somehow fails to see the world as any rational person looking on should see it.

Because despite all the troubles in the world mentioned above, the Obama administration’s focus is not on those boring things, but instead on the fact that Bibi Netanyahu is making a speech in Congress.  Well whoop-de-bloody-do!   Honestly, who cares if Bibi makes a speech in a forum he has made many speeches?  But apparently, Bibi’s speech is soooo destructive to the world, that during his speech, the world temperature will rise 10 degrees, the ice-caps of the North Pole will melt, Category 10 storms will reign through the planet, and The Bold and The Beautiful will come to an end.

Bibi is speaking out against allowing a terrorist entity to have a nuclear arsenal that will turn the world so dangerous that no free person on this earth would be able to sleep peacefully again.  And while the Obama administration fakes some kind of outrage – yeah right – that they weren’t consulted, what will their reaction be when Iran turns nuclear – and they had been consulted for years!

It is a sad day indeed when America, whose values of freedom and opportunity, aspired to by billions, sides with countries whose values are death and oppression, feared by billions more.

Mr Netanyahu is coming to Washington, not just as a representative of Israel, but as a representative of a world who do not want to live under the jackboot of another Islamic fascist terrorist state.  He speaks as a representative of a world whose values are freedom and opportunity and hope.  And considering he lives in the only island of stability in the raging storm of chaos around him, we should probably listen.
