I Stand With Israel

http://cjonline.com/blog-post/kevin-mcginty/2014-07-23/i-stand-israel


For a variety of reasons I'm not much of a religious person and never have been. So everything I have to say today comes more from a common sense point of view than from a religious perspective.

First and foremost and whether the haters of the world like it or not Israel has a right to exist.

Furthermore they have the right (morally as well as legally) to defend themselves from those who seek to deny them that right.

And as hard as it is to imagine, there are those who'll no doubt disagree.

Just for the fun of it let's say you're the leader of a country completely surrounded by terrorist organizations armed to the teeth by Iran and other terror sponsoring countries who have vowed to wipe you and your people off the face of the earth.

What would you do?

Hundreds of French Jews Immigrate To Israel During Gaza Offensive

Undeterred by the relentless rounds of cross-border hostilities between Israel and Hamas, hundreds of French Jewish immigrants gleefully accepted their Israeli identity cards at a ceremony here on Thursday afternoon.

"I came because of anti-Semitism, said teary-eyed Veronique Rivka Buzaglo, one of 430 immigrants who arrived from France the day before. "You see it in the eyes of people. I see it in everything," she continued in broken Hebrew, referring to the rising anti-Semitism in her home country.

As a proud, self-identified Zionist, Buzaglo says nothing would have stopped her from becoming an Israeli citizen this week -- not even the rocket sirens frequently blaring in the south of the country, where she plans to live.

Since the conflict began on July 8, Hamas has fired more than a thousand rockets into Israel, and Israel has bombarded the Gaza Strip with land, air and sea strikes. On Thursday, Israel ramped up its military efforts and launched a major ground offensive in Gaza with thousands of troops. More than 260 Palestinians have been killed, the majority of them civilians, while there have been two Israeli fatalities, one solider and one civilian.
