King Saul and his entourage of military experts were incredulous. No doubt that David's older brothers just rolled their eyes at the shenanigans of their annoying little brother. His job was to take care of the sheep, not bring them food. What was their father up to? Could that old Prophet Samuel have had a hand in this?
As I've written many times, Israel endangers itself, its existence and security by listening to other countries and caring about what they say. Ruthie Blum's latest article, she writes of how incredulous she is by the fact that the United States and other countries seem no more disturbed by the Syrian Government murders of its own civilians as they are by the Israeli Government's approval of housing for Jews in Judea and Samaria.
It is tragic that the obvious needs repeating here. Creating moral parity between the prime minister of a democracy and a dictatorial serial killer is not only the height of hypocrisy; it is the very phenomenon George Orwell devoted his life’s work to exposing and warning against.Robert Spencer of the PJ Media writes of the double standard when it comes to the Muslims in the European media. And roger Simon, also on PJ Media suggests that Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu be wary of trusting United States President Barack Hussein Obama when it comes to the Iranian nuclear development.
Even if we just go back to Israel's earlier years and wars, we'll see that our victories were without the help of an allied country. They went against "popular wisdom." Yes, we were victorious, because we had G-d on our side. With G-d as an ally, it doesn't matter that other countries and the United Nations don't support us. Please don't think that I've written that we can just wait and do nothing.
We must fight, make every effort to win, but we must not keep on consulting with foreign governments asking their advice and permission.
We do not need the permission of other countries to defend ourselves. We also must produce the weapons we need. It would be good for our defense and even better for the Israeli economy.
