Israel is not tame. But she is good. If a poacher shoots arrows at a pride of sleeping lions, are the lions to blame for rousing and defending themselves? What does one say of the shooter when he intentionally cowers behind the skirts of his own women and daughters, hoping, indeed praying, that these precious souls will inadvertently perish as a result? One calls him a coward, a fool and a monster.
We are witnessing Arab and Muslim war crimes in a never ending spiral of horror inflicted upon Israel’s civilian population as endless salvos of missiles fired by the Hamas occupiers of Gaza rein down upon Israeli villages, towns and cities - and the world yawns. But then, remarkably, it awakens when the Jews have the unmitigated gall, temerity and chutzpah to defend themselves.
The reports are often skewed, and produce reactionary and hostile responses. And so the cycle goes on, and will continue until some sort of crisis or distraction unfolds (most likely staged or fabricated) that enables the people to rally together in unity against a common threat (perceived or otherwise).
I've seen few if any conservatives who can stay on point and stay on issue like Ryan Anderson of the Heritage Foundation in this video. In a forum, a homosexual man asks Anderson why he and his partner shouldn't be able to file a joint tax return like married couples can. Anderson doesn't get distracted, but goes straight to the principle of the issue and stays there.
There is no debate we’re a country in transition. In the political arena, nowhere will this attempted paradigm shift be more apparent than the foreign policy debate that could very well define the race for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination. Recently, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul and Texas Governor Rick Perry gave us a preview.
"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the party over to the so-called moderates wouldn't make any sense at all." - Ronald Reagan, Nov. 10, 1964
