Obama’s No Churchill

Winston Churchill

Winston Churchill

This Declaration of Independence from the British – based on Ben-Gurion’s unshakable determination that America would be the leading power in the Middle East and North Africa after the war – also poignantly declared that the conference “offers a message of hope and encouragement to…Jews in the Ghettos and concentration camps of Hitler-dominated Europe and prays that their hour of liberation may not be far distant.”

In May 1948, six years after the historic Biltmore Conference, Ben-Gurion and other Jewish leaders in Palestine rejected the warning of Secretary of State George Marshall that they couldn’t win a war against the surrounding Arab countries and declared a Jewish state reborn after nearly two millennia.

People test Israel every day to see how serious we really are in knowing when we are right.

Should Jews in Europe take more responsibility in self-defense of community and property?

It is time for a total military siege on Gaza; Nothing should enter the Gaza Strip.

Germany’s The Jewish Faith newspaper ominously noted, “We Jews are in for a war after the war.”

The truth is we seldom explore with kids what prayer is supposed to be about.

Almost as one, Jews around the world are acknowledging the day-to-day peril facing ordinary Jews in Israel and the extraordinary service of the IDF in protecting them.

So on the one hand Secretary Kerry makes no bones about who is at fault for the current hostilities: he clearly blames Hamas.

King Solomon said it long ago: “Cast your bread upon the waters” because you don’t know when you’ll hit something. Our job is to do.

The anti-Israel camp does not need to win America fully to its side. Merely to neutralize it would radically alter the balance of power and put Israel in great jeopardy.
