My Commentary on Netanyahu's Visit: Historic!
"Iran's supreme leader ... spews the oldest hatred of anti-Semitism with the newest technology," Netanyahu said. "He tweets that Israel must be ... destroyed."
I was greatly impressed by the words offered by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu today. I was equally embarrassed by the response from the person who calls himself President and his Cabinet, as well as the rancid remarks made in response to his visit and speech.
I find that the lack of respect toward one of our staunchest allies is a major concern when viewed by other allies around the world. How can this administration get other nations to support a coalition when one such close friend is treated in such a manner?
Perhaps it is time for lovers of liberty and peace to stand with Israel, to stand against Islamic extremism and terrorism. Perhaps it is time to join the likes of the President of Egypt and the King of Jordan, and do whatever it takes to defeat the scourge wherever it rears its evil head.
It's time to stand strong with our friends and not negotiate with our enemies.
