As I laid down beside my Mother in an Israeli hospital bed, I couldn't believe she was wounded, just as I was as a little girl when rubble had fallen on top of me after Islamic terrorists blew up my home. I was then in disbelief at what I witnessed.
Israel doctors and nurses were attending to Islamic radicals, who they knew full well would love to see every Jew on earth perish.
Killers cut from the same cloth of those who blew up my home, and routinely support or commit terrorist attacks against Israelis, were being treated by the very people they sought to destroy. Why?
How could it be that the Israelis treated them with such dignity, knowing how much hate these radicals had in their hearts for Jews?
I realized at a very young age, the stark difference between Judeo-Christian culture, and Islamic culture. When you boil it down, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is so simple, a child like me could understand it at the time.
On one side, a Western democracy, with a desire to live in peace with those around them. On the other, a culture of hatred and violence, stopping at nothing to see its enemies destroyed. It’s a difference between civilization and barbarism.
That reality was revealed after President Trump courageously announced the official recognition of Jerusalem as the Capital of Israel, and a bold new Embassy to be moved from Tel-Aviv.
The reaction? Predictable.
The terrorist organization Hamas, as well other Palestinian factions such as the Palestinian Authority, President Mahmoud Abbas’s Fatah party called for a “Day of Rage.”
“The youth and the Palestinian resistance in the West Bank need to respond with all means available to the U.S. decision that harms our Jerusalem. Jerusalem is a red line and the resistance will not allow any desecration of it,” it added.
Western cultures believe in diplomacy and exchanging ideas as the first means of resolving conflicts. Radical Islamic culture believes in violence first, diplomacy never.
Hence, violent clashes broke out between Palestinian rioters and Israeli Border Police. Border Police came under attack by Molotov cocktails and large rocks, hurled at them ahead of the U.N General Assembly vote.
Palestinian U.N envoy Riyad Mansour said the General Assembly would vote on a draft resolution for Trump's declaration to be withdrawn, recently vetoed by the United States.
The U.N, a useless and downright anti-Semitic body seems to think it had the right to tell the United States of America what it can, and cannot do with respect to its allies.
First, considering that the U.N allows Saudi Arabia, a country which still beheads and stones its citizens, to sit on the Human Rights Council, this isn’t exactly a body known for its moral credibility.
Second, the United States is a sovereign nation, which conducts its foreign policy on behalf of the American people, not some useless bureaucracy, whose appeasement has allowed Islamic radicalism to spread like wildfire throughout the world, and North Korea to develop nuclear weapons.
More to it, what about Israel’s sovereignty? Does Israel not have the right, as all countries do, to declare its own Capital?
Does the U.N believe it has such outrageous authority to deny Israel this fundamental right? Apparently so. Further, this false narrative that there are two reasonable sides to this conflict defies all moral reality and conscience.
While mainstream media outlets love to show images of displaced and injured Palestinians during military conflicts, they often fail to point out that the reason those very Palestinians, many of them children, were injured, was because soulless and cowardly radicals were hiding behind them, while launching rockets at Israelis.
This isn’t brain surgery. This is good vs. evil.
Consider this, the Jewish people have protected and maintained both Jewish, as well as Islamic holy sites in Jerusalem, while radical Islamists from Palestine have gone to such lengths as encouraging suicide bombings to destroy the holy sites of Jews.
For those who claim the action of President Trump to move the U.S Embassy from Jerusalem to Tel Aviv will increase violence, it’s important to point out that the Palestinian Authority and HAMAS were always terrorist organizations, hell-bent on destroying Israel, long before President Trump took this courageous action.
It’s also important to point out that evil doesn’t respect concessions, it is merely emboldened by them.
Capitulation, a strategy tried and failed by those who still fail to comprehend that the values of the Islamic world are not that of the West, will lead to more death, not brave, principled moves like the one exercised by our Commander-in-Chief to recognize Israel’s rightful Capital and sovereignty.
