Yes, folks, the news is out and it is not good. It seems like Israelis will be schlepping to the polls for the third time this year in order to vote in a new government and perhaps a new prime minister. The democratic process in the Jewish state has really had its share of onerous challenges and has endured the ripple effects of a parliamentary crisis of sorts. There is no question that in the last few years we have all witnessed unprecedented historical and political events, starting with the election victory of Donald Trump to the White House. We have also witnessed Israel actually be treated with the respect and dignity that it deserves by its staunch US ally, in comparison to the shabby treatment that was doled out by the previous US administration. We have watched history be made, yet for Israel, its people and its prime minister, it has been a complex few years.
While this makes practically no sense whatsoever, we leave it to the Jew to deftly reprise his perennial role as his “own worst enemy.” Prime Minister Netanyahu has stewarded his country through the US declaration establishing Jerusalem as Israel’s eternal and undivided capital. He has also worked not only with President Trump on the future peace plan that will be rolled out but he has worked with its chief architect, Trump son-in-law and chief advisor, Jared Kushner.
Unlike the former resident of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue who held only disdain for Prime Minister Netanyahu, President Trump has made it his business to create the kind of US-Israel relationship that we only hoped for about a decade ago.
So, now that matters appear to be going along quite swimmingly, our brethren in Israel feel compelled to replicate the actions of left-wing Americans who can’t wait to impeach Trump. So, what do they do? They too start manufacturing “charges” against Netanyahu in order to oust him from office so some left wing dictator can stroll right in, sit down with the Palestinians and start making suicidal territorial comprises for the sake of a fictional peace that will only blow up in our faces.
Finally, when Israel has an stalwart ally in Trump who goes to bat for the entire Jewish nation by speaking about the deleterious effects of the BDS movement, of the unprecedented rise in virulent anti-Semitism, of the real and existential dangers that the Iranian regime represents to the future of Israel and other important matters, what do we go and do??
The left wing in Israel makes its raison d’etre to lead us to believe that Netanyahu should be foisted from office because of some bogus corruption and bribery charges that are so incredibly inconsequential that they are laughable. The left wants Netanyahu to go down in defeat, to have his respectable legacy severely tarnished, just so that Israel will not get treated fairly by the United States.
We would assume that the Jew is still suffering from diaspora fatigue and cannot adjust themselves to the fact that we are now respected by the US in ways in which we have not seen since the early says of the modern state of Israel. We cannot afford to go backwards. The time is long overdue for Attorney General Mandelblit to see the writing on the walls and to retract the indictment against Prime Minister Netanyahu. For the good of the people, for the good of peace, for the good of the land and for the good of all Western civilization.
