By "anybody and everybody," I am referring to those who value freedom and basic human rights.
I am going to make this post short because this is all self-explanatory. These are all facts and I feel that the facts themselves should make anybody understand why supporting Israel is the right thing to do.
Whether you are or aren't Jewish, whether you do or don't feel a connection to the land of Israel, and whether you do or don't feel affected by what is goes on in the Middle East- that does not matter. There is still one major reason why you should care about and support Israel.
You see, Israel is the only democratic place in the Middle East. It is America's most trustworthy ally.
As the talented Brigitte Gabriel, founder of Act for America, a non-profit organization that educates citizens and elected officials about national security and terrorism, says quite often, "we need to take political correctness and throw it in the garbage where it belongs."
So what does Israel's ideals and its relationship with America have to do with you?
Let's be real.
We all know that 9/11 was a terrorist attack organized by Al Qaeda, a militant Islamist terrorist organization. (There have been other threats against America by other terrorist organizations from the Middle East- one other example is 1993 when an attack against the Lincoln and Holland Tunnels was thwarted. This attack was planned by Omar Abdel-Rahman, a leader of a radical Egyptian Islamic Group al-Gama'a al-Islamiyya, that has links to al-Qaeda. For the sake of keeping this short, I won't go into further detail).
It was no accident. This was an attack on Western culture- democracy.
Al Qaeda (and al-Gama'a al-Islamiyya) have strong ties to Iran, a country that is known for funding, providing weapons and equipment for, and training terrorists.
ISIS, the Islamic States of Syria and Iraq, is responsible for murdering thousands of Christians over the past couple of months.
Israel is surrounded by all of these threats and suffers from these terrorist attacks on a regular basis (monthly, sometimes daily).
Where does this place you?
Because once (hopefully it will never get to this point) these terrorist organizations are through with Israel, they're ready to attack (and already have) and get rid of anybody else who supports Western ideals rather than their own ideology.
Why should you support Israel?
Israel is the little saint and America is the big saint.
Israel is on the front lines right now, fighting for our rights as well as its own.
Stand with freedom.
Stand with democracy.
Stand with basic human rights.
Stand with Israel.
Because at the end of the day, we're all in the same boat.
Our boat just isn't as close as Israel's boat is.
Want to keep it this way?
Do something. Say something.
I stand with Israel. I know why I do.
