‘We Want To Break The Leftist Monopoly On Public Discourse In Israel’: An Interview with Caroline Glick


Glick-Caroline

The latest Latma song is an optimistic one. Does that reflect your personal opinion or are you more pessimistic about Israel’s current situation?

I really believe Israel will win and that justice is on our side. I have a deep and abiding faith in the Jewish people to stand up for ourselves. We didn’t come to Israel in order to see this country destroyed. We are so close to victory. We have everything going in our favor. Our people are extraordinary, our economy is doing well, our soldiers are brave and trained well. Our enemies are falling apart in front of our faces; their economies are falling apart.

We just have to stand tough and stand up for our rights. Once we do that it’s not going to bring peace forever and ever, but when did the Jewish people ever have such a thing? It could bring peace and security and prosperity for a generation. We have been told for the past generation that we have no right to defend ourselves, that if we stand up for our rights then people are going to hate us, when the exact opposite is true.

We’ve been brainwashed by a left that produces demoralizing pictures of what we can expect from our region and our world, which isn’t based on anything but their own fantasies. We need to expose that. Once we do that, I don’t think there’s anything we can’t accomplish. So I am very optimistic, but I understand the obstacles we have to surmount in order to get to that place are formidable and we will have to use our greatest talents in order to get past them.

The New Israel Fund, as usual, condemns the State of Israel rather than condemning a horrible act.

Reports of a dead baby, a devastated family, and indications of a gloating attacker.

“Yesha” and Binyamin Regional Council leaders said the attack “is not the path of Jews in Judea and Samaria.”

Though unadulterated ambition may have been a prime motivating force behind Ed’s denouncement of Israel and embrace of the Palestinians, no one denies his belief in what he says.

Despite efforts to revive Jewish cultural life in Poland, which has met with a measure of success and support from Polish officials, Poland still remains a virtual graveyard of its prewar glory days.

One look at the breakdown of competing parties in the Israeli elections lends credibility to the old joke of two Jews and three shuls.

The fact that a congresswoman and head of the DNC felt the need to recant what is obvious and at the same time threatening to American Jews is more of a commentary on the state of American Jewry and less on the dishonesty of a dithering politician.

In his September speech to the UN, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu pointed to that fox when he compared Iran to the Nazis.

It is hard to believe that only one hundred years ago religion played such a central and accepted role in the personal and governmental lives of American citizens that its invocation was standard.

We see pictures of mosques, monuments for terrorists, illegal schools, and hundreds of apartments being built on Jewish land without repercussions. We are losing Jewish property, so it is up to us to protect it.

What’s important is to make the case for Israel more forcefully and to give it the articulation that the next presidential candidates ought to have.
