In recent days, the Obama administration as requested that the Israeli government issue a public apology to the Turkish government over the flotilla incident of May 2010 when several ships sent from Turkey attempted to pierce through the Israeli Gaza security blockade.
Prime minister Netanyahu has- RIGHTFULLY SO- refused to apologize to Turkey, remarking that if anybody owed an apology, it was Turkey to Israel (article here).
It amazes me how the world continues to slap Israel in the face and accuse the Jewish nation of being the NUMBER ONE REASON why there is no peace in the middle East.
During the middle ages, popes, kings and nobles repeatedly committed the same crimes. Many attempts were made at ostracizing, de-humanizing and even destroying the Jews, while using Jewish property and wealth in the process. Some might wonder why I bring the middle Ages into all this?
Personally, I see great similarities between the forced apology for an act committed against Israel and the fact of having Jewish people finance their own demise.
We kill you but YOU pay for it!
We aggress you but YOU apologize!
In both cases it is a humiliating and antisemitic approach that I believe is only meant to further demonize the Jewish people and Israel.
I stand behind Benjamin Netanyahu for his decision not to apologize for an act NOT committed.
I wonder how much more the Obama administration needs to do to prove to the world that America
has finally turned its back on Israel?
The Bible states in Hebrews 10:31 that “it is a terrifying thing to fall int the hands of the living God”.
It is also in the Bible, in the book of Genesis that we find God’s foreign policy regarding Israel.
In Genesis 12:3 we are reminded of God’s promise to Abraham and his descendants: “I will bless those who bless you and curse him who curses you”.
The clock is ticking!!!
