Once again, on a holy day of the Jewish calendar, and 50 years since the Yom Kippur War, the people of Israel have come under attack.
A sickening surprise attack from both Hamas terror squads and rocket fire on Israel began in the early hours of Shabbat (Sabbath) morning from the Hamas terrorist occupiers of Gaza. As of now, at least 40 Israeli civilians have been murdered and 800 injured. Those numbers will grow. And, according to news reports, Israeli hostages have been taken to Gaza.
Only when Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Hezbollah and the PLO (aka the Palestinian Authority) are totally eliminated will there ever be a true and lasting peace. Behind the horror stands the Islamic Republic of Iran which funds worldwide terror. The Islamic regime is feverishly working to build nuclear weapons and thus unleash catastrophic worldwide war. It believes that it will thus usher in the ‘Islamic messiah,’ the so-called 12th Imam, according to Shiite Islam.
President Biden and his Administration are deeply culpable in the current Muslim Arab and Iranian aggression because of its appeasement and shameful funding of the Islamic Republic of Iran from where the terrorists receive their orders and financial support. In this, Biden, is continuing the policy of his predecessor, Barack Hussein Obama.
We may well now see and hear the mainstream media repeat its appalling double standard whereby the IDF will falsely be accused of using “excessive force” in defending its civilian population. Watch out, too, to losses among the Palestinian Arab terrorists being described by the same corrupt media as though they are innocent civilians. This is standard anti-Israel propaganda that has blighted the truth and led to the demonization of the embattled Jewish state time and time again.© Victor Sharpe
