We’ve got to stop acting like children. One of the consequences of having your own country, despite the fact of not having one for 2 millennia, is that we have to stop whining to the world about people who threaten us. It sounds bad, it looks bad, and it makes the world resent us. Simply said, Israel has to stop whining to the world that the Persians want to kill us, and start to stand up for herself and the Jewish people proudly, strongly, and without looking over her shoulder.
I understand the Foreign Ministry’s strategy of trying to guilt and twist the world’s arm into thinking that Iran is a threat to the West. But it just makes the world tired and annoyed at the Jewish people, and it really makes the world resent us.
Man up Jews! If some dictator threatens your existence, fight back! It would be one thing if we were stuck somewhere in the Roman Empire with no army, but we’re pretty self-sufficient now. Standing up for ourselves and taking out our own garbage would do more for this nation than crying about Iran’s nuclear program to the rest of the world that is tired of us anyway for trying to focus their attention on a third world country while they’re about to explode in a chaotic Keynesian economic meltdown.
This also means we have to stop whining when Obama and Sarkozy call Netanyahu a liar. Who really cares? Man up and stop accusing everyone of anti Semitism just because they think a politician is a liar.
Europe and the US have enough problems to worry about without taking on yet another war they can’t afford.
If we take care of this ourselves, we’ll take a hit, but we’ll be better off for it. Psychologically, we’ll be a healthier, stronger nation.
So, Netanyahu, if you want to go down in Jewish history along with Begin for saving the Jewish People, take the Book of Esther to heart:
Bibi – If you don’t stand up for us now, right now, then salvation will rise for the Jews from a different place, but you and your father’s house will be forgotten. And who knows if Iran isn’t the very reason you came to the throne?
The clock is ticking, Benjamin Netanyahu. If you don’t answer the call, the next prime minister will. I’m not worried for the Jews. But I’d like you to have your place in the sun, if only because that’s what you want for yourself.
