Peace on Earth?This showed up in my email. It's a video from aish.com. It's only a minute long, so go ahead and watch.
OK, I agree, we should fight the hate with love, and we should all work for a more peaceful world. But they left one very important piece out of the Jewish response to evil: Fight back! And I mean really fight back. Even if the rest of the world doesn't approve of Jews fighting back (and as we've seen from the reactions of the U.N., the MSM, NGO's, "human rights" groups, and European governments, the rest of the world goes apoplectic when Jews, that is, Israel dares fight back) Jews still have to fight back. And we have to fight harder than ever due to the forces arrayed against us.
Israel exists only because the Israelis were prepared to fight for their country. Jews celebrate the Maccabees at Chanukah because they fought back. We celebrate Esther and Mordechai at Purim because they fought back. And they did it without attempting to gauge public support or trying to win the support of any other countries. The Islamo-Nazis don't care about peace, or coexistence, or love. They've been demonstrating this for 1300 years, but we're not supposed to acknowledge the history of Islam at the risk of being labeled "Islamophobe".
Many people will claim that peaceful tactics worked for Ghandi. The thing to remember though, is that Ghandi battled the British, who did not demand that the world bow to them. The British were decent and humane. The Islamists are not, never have been and never will be. For them, it's submit or die. I will not submit.
So while, yes, I do believe in peace, and I want a peaceful world for my children, I know that peace cannot be achieved by submitting to a terrorist enemy or showing how loving I am. The world will be more peaceful when the Islamo-Nazi terrorists are hunted down and killed. Then we can prepare to battle the next evil that will surely arise, as the next evil is always waiting in the wings.
