The debate surrounding the U.S.’s interaction between Israel and Iran is gaining tide. It is obvious that the Middle East turmoil is growing and countries as well as individuals will have to determine on what side of the aisle they will stand.
Recently, someone brought to my attention that one of the two main topics they see as important in the 2012 elections will center around Israel. The economy, gas prices, healthcare, and other topics are all important issues. Yet, what takes place with Israel will have an influence on all that we do at home.
If we do not get involved in protecting Israel, the beacon of hope and freedom in the Middle East, then those who want to annihilate the Jewish people (such as Iran) will seek to destroy Israel as well as harm all other nations who promote democracy and the rule of law. History shows us that those who stay out of defeating evil plots will suffer at evil’s hand. France is such an example during WWII. If it was not for the U.S. intervening, Germany would have annihilated France. Once again, the Nazis, haters of the Jewish people, would not stop at exterminating Jews, they would continue until they had supreme rulership. As Edmund Burke warned us: “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.”
So, Israel is our business, and we should make defending our ally top priority.
