In a world where Israel is surrounded by her enemies, more so now than before the Arab Spring, who could blame the Israelis for taking a stand in defending their people.
America has always, up until this point, been a steadfast ally of the Jewish State. However, the current administration, and I dare say the world, seem more antagonistic to Israel than ever before in modern history.
President Barack Obama this week encouraged Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to “wait” for sanctions against a nuclear bent Iran to take hold. However, the Prime Minister reiterated his nation’s right to defend itself and did not rule out a preemptive strike against Iran, a nation neck deep in terrorist sponsorship.
Say what you will about the Israelis, when backed into a perceived corner, they have and will ruthlessly fight their way out. One can only hope that the result is not another World War to end all wars. Such a conflict would have consequences of Biblical proportions.
“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem…” Psalm 122:6
