Unequivocal Support For Israel
Read this Weekly Standard op-ed by Bill Kristol titled With Israel, Against Terror. In it he writes, "We’re pleased the Times managed to refrain from blaming the victims of terror for the terrorist act. But we’re a bit befuddled by the Times’s profession of incomprehension. Really, what’s not to comprehend? The Palestinians wanted to kill Jews. They did so, brutally and savagely. This is not the first time this has happened in recent months, years, or decades. It is not exactly something new in the annals of the modern Middle East, or of the world...America has the misfortune to have an anti-Israel president for two more years. America has the good fortune to have a pro-Israel Congress for that same period of time. It should be a priority for that Congress, through speech and deed, to signal unequivocally to Israel and its enemies that terror and pressure against Israel will not succeed, and that America stands with Israel in our common fight against terror and barbarism."
