Moreover how can Jews oppose revolution in Israel while idolizing the United States of America, which was founded on revolution? Do these Jews really believe Americans were wrong to revolt against their English brethren in 1776? Was Patrick Henry a criminal for proclaiming, “Give me liberty or give me death”?
Revolt is difficult. It is far easier to complain about Obama, the UN, the EU, Turkey, the Goldstone Report, and The New York Times. But ultimately Israel’s government is to blame, not them. Even if the whole Western world loved Israel, Israel would still face a ruthless Arab enemy that will stop at nothing to “liberate” its “stolen” land. That fact will never change no matter how much the Western world likes, or doesn’t like, Israel.
What can change is how Israel’s government approaches this enemy. Does it try to appease it by surrendering land that God promised to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob? Or does it crush it as every normal country since the dawn of time has sought to pulverize its enemies?
For the past 20 years Israel’s government has largely chosen the first path, refusing to even seriously consider the second one. For that to change, Israelis may have to mimic their Arab neighbors and “shake” things up a little.

National Lawyers Guild:Sworn enemy of Israel & the legal arm of Palestinian terrorism since the ’70s
A little less than 10 percent of eligible Democratic voters came out on primary day, which translates into Mr. Cuomo having received the support of 6.2 percent of registered Democrats.
The reality, though, is that the Israeli “war crimes” scenario will likely be played out among highly partisan UN agencies, NGOs, and perhaps even the International Criminal Court.
Peace or the lack of it between Israel and the Palestinians matters not one whit when it comes to the long-term agenda of ISIS and other Islamists, nor does it affect any of the long-running inter-Arab conflicts and wars.
Rather than serving as a deterrent against terrorist attacks, Israel’s military strength and capabilities are instead looked at as an unfair advantage in the asymmetrical war in which it finds itself.
