What’s At Stake Here?

While it is painful to witness the human suffering caused by the latest skirmish in Gaza, people need to understand what is really at stake here. We are at the nexus of a clash of civilizations that will make the Cold War look like child’s play. 

If you’re a woman, black, gay, Christian, atheist, Jew or moderate Muslim and/or you care about the cherished values of freedom and liberty our civilization has sacrificed so much to achieve, then you must care deeply about the survival of Israel. We are your canary.

Anti-Israel protest in Paris.

If you doubt me then educate yourself on who Hamas is and with whom they are allied. Look at the vicious anti-Israel/antisemitic protests happening now around the world and notice who and what they are not  protesting against.

While the deaths of innocents is tragic and heart-wrenching, the death of our way of life would remove innocence from the world.
