Here’s another question: Can America survive another four years of Barack Obama and the top-down, central planning statists of the Democrat party?
What’s good for America is good for Israel. And what brings ruin to America also brings ruin to Israel. This social, geo-political equation has its roots in our shared histories. Both Israel and America are the only two countries on the face of the earth that were founded upon the twin ideas of religious and national liberty.
America is made up of a people who fled illiberal, intolerant countries in order to become Americans. Israel is the biblical home of the Jewish people who, after millenia of exile, oppression and genocide, returned to their homeland in order to become a free people.
Traditionally, Americans and Israelis believe that the rights of man stem from G-d. For Americans, this belief is enshrined in the Bible and the Declaration of Independence. For Israelis, whether they know it or not, these rights are found in the written and oral Torah. Even Ben Gurion, Israel’s non-observant first Prime Minister kept a copy of the Torah on his desk and on his night stand.
Obama and the Democrats are, for the most part, radical secularists who depend not on faith but reason. But, as we have seen time and again throughout history, when men surrender faith, they also surrender the desire to live, the desire to defend their cultures. In fact, men without faith are unable to articulate what in their civilization is worth preserving.
Thus, in our time, the Democrats seek accommodation with the genocidal yearning Islamists of Iran, Hamas, Hizbullah, and the Muslim Brotherhood. Just a few short years ago they sought accommodation with genocidal communists.
Western feminists started out burning bras, now they don the hijab and call it multicultural freedom. This is intellectual collapse, collective suicide, a sign that the chattering classes are intent on ignoring the barbarians who are breaching the gates of civilization. How soon before western feminists inform us that female genital mutilation is a human and cultural right that must be respected?
Secular intellectuals seek the benefits of religion but without faith. They call it “sharing the wealth.” But it is communism, socialism, collectivism, all the failed isms of the left that are bringing a death spiral to Europe.
Can Israel and America survive another four years of Obama and the radical Democrats?
I do not want to find out.
