Enraged

Arlene from Israel – h/t to the NoisyRoom

It is noon on Friday and I have scant time to post, and yet I must — because I am enraged. Enraged because the world does not want the Jewish State to defend herself, all the saccharine declarations to the contrary. The world doesn’t like Palestinian Arab dead and doesn’t like strong moves by the IDF.

The issue must be clear: It is not just a question of Hamas and Islamic Jihad temporarily stopping rocket launchings because that’s in their best interest at the moment. It’s a question of weakening or destroying their capacity to hit us again when the mood strikes them.

Taking out their weapons — pre-emption — is defense.

Defense Minister Barak made that clear in his declaration of the goals of Operation Pillar of Defense.

I have sat here for years at my computer, detailing what is being brought into Gaza — the weapons of growing sophistication. And all the time, horrified. Now with Ghaddafi’s weapons available to terrorists, it’s even worse — and make no mistake about it, those weapons are being smuggled into Gaza.

~~~~~~~~~~

The world has not been concerned about the implications of this stockpiling of weapons by a terrorist group that is sworn to Israel’s destruction. It is content to look the other way and confer upon Hamas increased legitimacy. I have had no choice over the years but to conclude that Jewish life does not matter. It would be foolish to even imagine that the UN might have sessions in which the actions of Hamas are discussed. It is too busy discussing that horrible danger, Israeli “settlements.”

Now UN Secretary General Ban is coming to Israel to attempt to “restore quiet.” That’s what we would expect of him.

~~~~~~~~~~

But in the JPost today I picked up this:

“US State Department spokesman Mark Toner said Washington has urged Cairo to take steps to calm the situation.

“‘We ask Egypt to use its influence in the region to help de-escalate the situation,’ he said.

“Both US President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton spoke to their Egyptian counterparts by phone on Wednesday in an appeal for partnership in de-escalating the tension.

“Obama told President Mohamed Morsi that Egypt had a ‘central role in preserving regional security.’”

Regional security? What the hell is that?

And partnership with a Muslim Brotherhood Egypt?

~~~~~~~~~~

Of course, Obama then followed this up with a statement about Israel’s right to self defense. What hypocrisy. Our “self-defense” precludes quiet at the moment.

Don’t ever, ever tell me that Obama cares about Israel’s security.

~~~~~~~~~~

I am encouraged that our government is standing strong. Prime Minister Netanyahu made a statement to the foreign press: “Israel will continue to take whatever action is necessary to defend our people.”

May the Almighty keep his spine stiff.

~~~~~~~~~~

What I ask of you, before Shabbat, is to share this absolutely as broadly as possible so that people can understand.

And give a word of encouragement to PM Netanyahu at:

E-mail: Memshala@pmo.gov.il and also pm_eng2@it.pmo.gov.il (underscore after pm) use both addresses.

~~~~~~~~~~

Then let your elected representative in Congress know that you want Israel to be given the latitude to defend herself properly.

For your Congresspersons:

For your Senators:

~~~~~~~~~~

Join me in my rage, my friends, and speak out on behalf of Israel. Flood their offices with calls and e-mails.

And, as I always ask, make statements on talk shows, write letters to the editor. Do what you can to help people understand what is really going on.

~~~~~~~~~~

As I write, Israel has hit close to 500 targets in Gaza and is continuing. Hamas and Islamic Jihad are still launching rockets, including Grads, and long range missiles.

About Ask Marion

I am a babyboomer and empty nester who savors every moment of my past and believes that it is the responsibility of each of us in my generation and Americans in general to make sure that America is as good or even a better place for future generations as it was for us. So far... we haven't done very well!! Favorite Quotes: "The first 50 years are to build and acquire; the second 50 are to leave your legacy"; "Do something that scares you every day!"; "The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place". At age 62 I find myself fighting inoperable uterine Cancer and thanks to the man upstairs and the prayers from so many people including many of my readers from AskMarion and JustOneMorePet... I'm beating it. After losing our business because of the economy and factors related to the re-election of President Obama in 2012 followed by 16-mos of job hunting, my architect-trained husband is working as a trucker and has only been home approximately 5-days a month since I was diagnosed, which has made everything more difficult and often lonely... plus funds are tight. Our family medical deductible is 12K per year for two of us; thank you ObamaCare. But thanks to donations from so many of you, we are making ends meet as I go through treatment while taking care of my father-in-law who is suffering from late stage Alzheimer's and my mother-in-law who suffers from RA and onset dementia as well as hearing loss, for which there are no caretaker funds, as I continue the fight here online to inform and help restore our amazing country. And finally I need to thank a core group of family, friends, and readers... all at a distance, who check in with me regularly. Plus, I must thank my furkids who have not left my side through this fight. You can see them at JustOneMorePet.
