If you have a functioning set of eyes and brain, you’ve likely noticed that Islamists always be ganging up on Israel. If a country is full of Qurans and women dressed in death snuggies, it’s safe to assume they’re not fans of Jews. Turbans have been clashing with yarmulkes for centuries. Tis an age-old rivalry, where the hijabed team keeps killing the Israeli team… Because “religion of peace” and stuff.
Recently, Israeli Prime Minister – and our personal favorite – Benjamin Netanyahu, tried a different tactic with the Iranians. Instead of going You Don’t Mess With The Zohan on their falafel-eating behinds, Bibi struck back at the Iranian people with a fresh strategy… friendship.
I plan to speak soon with President Trump about how to counter the threat of the Iranian regime which calls for Israel’s destruction. But it struck me recently that I’ve spoken a lot about the Iranian regime and not enough about the Iranian people, or for that matter, to the Iranian people. Tragically, you are shackled by a theocratic tyranny…
…By calling daily for Israel’s destruction, the regime hopes to instill hostility between us.
This is wrong. We are your friend, not your enemy. We’ve always distinguished between the Iranian people and the Iranian regime.
I yearn for the day when Israelis and Iranians can once again visit each other freely. Our two peoples can work together for a more peaceful and hopeful future for both of us. We must defeat terror and tyranny and we must ensure that freedom and friendship win the day.
Of course, it’s doubtful Bibi’s olive branch will have a major impact on the Iranian people. Not just because Iranians reject Israel… but because they like having their heads attached to their shoulders. The looming threat of decapitation is rather effective when it comes to keeping people in line. Still, kudos to Netanyahu for exuding pure class. Again.
Notice something here? Israel has made it clear that they stand for freedom. Repeatedly. They’ve continually defended the rights of women, gays, and children. You’d think this would hit home with the majority of the democratic west. Alas, not so (see WTF? John Kerry Actually Says “Israel can be Jewish OR democratic. It cannot be both… and Netanyahu Spokesperson: Obama ‘Helped Craft’ Abominable Anti-Israel Solution). It would appear that leftist tolerance is reserved for sexist, oppressive Muslim nations. The Jews, on the other hand? Meh.
Speaking of Israel…
