Why Supporting Israel is a Top Priority for America

Despite their differences, one thing democrats and republicans almost unanimously agree on is that protecting Israel should be a top priority for America. Israel and America share a long history and many common values such as freedom, democracy, human rights and a commitment to fighting terrorism and despotic dictators. Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East, and our foremost ally in the war on terror. Yet for some reason, there appears to be a growing hatred and resentment of Israel within the United States. This article explains why this hatred is unfounded, and why we have both a moral obligation and many incentives to foster and strengthen our relationship with Israel.

Firstly, America was founded not on Christian, but on Judeo-Christian values, and therefore our country owes an allegiance to Israel and the Jewish people, who gave us the principles that built America. Although most Americans have never been to Israel, they have a strong cultural heritage there, whether they know it or not. Even Jesus was Jewish, so the teachings of Christianity are directly traceable to the Jewish people. So even though Jews may be a small percentage of the American population, their ideas were instrumental in defining American values and culture, and it is safe to say that America wouldn’t have been possible without them.

Critics of Israel claim that Israel does not give us anything in return for the aid and support that we offer them, but nothing could be further from the truth. In return for our contributions, Israel offers us their loyalty and dedication to our shared foreign policy objectives. Both the US and Israel seek to spread democracy to the Middle East and to bring an end to tyrannical dictatorships around the world. If we were to leave Israel defenseless against the hostile countries that surround it, we would be at risk of losing our strongest ally to our enemies, and our foreign policy objectives would be all but lost.

Israel has a strong human rights record and their policies encourage equality, fairness and diversity. Israel is the only country in the Middle East where people are not persecuted for their beliefs or culture, and where people of all ethnic and cultural backgrounds can live in harmony together.

It is in the interest of every American for us to continue to nurture, protect and defend the state Israel, not only for moral reasons, but because without them we are alone in our quest to spread freedom, democracy and Judeo-Christian values to every corner of the world.

  1. Not only that, but the number of Nobel Prize Laureates on a per capita basis is astounding!

    Such a tiny population can produce the following, and all from 1948 onwards:

    Arieh Warshel, Chemistry, 2013
    Michael Levitt, Chemistry, 2013
    Dan Shechtman, Chemistry, 2011
    Ada E. Yonath, Chemistry, 2009
    Robert Aumann, Economics, 2005
    Aaron Ciechanover, Chemistry, 2004
    Avram Hershko, Chemistry, 2004
    Daniel Kahneman, Economics, 2002
    Yitzhak Rabin, Peace, 1994
    Shimon Peres, Peace, 1994
    Menachem Begin, Peace, 1978

    Of course, everyone knows that there is actually no such thing as the Nobel Prize in Economics.

    • Yes, our partnership with Israel also allows us to benefit from Israeli science. Sadly for Israel though, most of the top Jewish economists are working for us, such as Dr Paul Krugman and Janet Yellen! We probably get way more out of our relationship with Israel than they do, when you consider this. It’s actually amazing that they let us get away with it!

      • yes! From Greenspan to Shalom Bernanke to Yellen, where would we be without this great people of superior IQ guiding our monetary policy and banking system? Where would we be without Goldman Sachs doing G-d’s Work?

        Without Ginsburg and Kagan on the SCOTUS, or without Schumer, Cantor, Lieberman, and on and on, occupying most of the senior positions in Congress? Or composing 3/4 of the senior positions in the Clinton cabinet? Just think of where we would be…but don’t think too much, as thinking can be dangerous. Think of ISRAEL ISRAEL ISRAEL.

    • This. Without the contributions of people like Robert Reich, Barnie Frank, Rahm Emanuel, Dianne Feinstein, Barbara Boxer, Al Franken, Bernie Sanders, and countless other progressive intellectuals where would our country be? An isolationist libertarian hell hole, that’s where!

      One thing missing from this article, an unforgiving oversight by the author, is the importance of dual-citizenship. How can we, as global citizens, trust that our politicians have our best interests at heart when they are bound by a single countries laws and customs? Only by dual-citizenship can politicians bring peace and democracy to the rest of the world. By utilizing the military power and tax base of the richest country on earth, we can truly unite humanity under the banner of equality and social justice.

  2. I, for one, am VERY worried about Israel.

    See, Israel hasn’t gone into multicultural mode and may not survive. In fact, its collapse may be imminent, according to logic put forth by leading jewish advocates of diversity in Europe, such as Barbara Lerner Spectre.

    We DESPERATELY need a strong leader in the White House who supports Israel FIRST and foremost, unconditionally, and who will do whatever it takes for diversity and multiculturalism to take hold there. We cannot let the greatest ally that anyone could have ever had in history or will ever have, to “not survive.” Save Israel – Multiculturalism NOW !

    And we should immediately attack all of Israel’s enemies and their allies, including Russia. Sometimes you need to start Armageddon to prevent Armageddon, you know? Just like how broad, bold, bipartisan leadership was needed to save the free market by killing it in 2008, when Bush was lying and millions were dying.

    Anti-semites might try to conceal their true motives while they are criticizing Israel for anything, including killing thousands in Gaza over a few rocket attacks, but we pro-Israel patriots see them for who they really are…Nazis who want to kill 7.0 million jews, just like Hitler did.

    Basically, opposition to anything Israel wants or does is anti-Semitism…thinly veiled, at that. Failure to support Israel first is anti-Semitism. And being an anti-Semite is the absolute worst thing anyone could ever be. True progressives would hire a child molestor to babysit their young children happily over an anti-Semite. A mass murderer is preferable to an anti-Semite. Questioning disproportionate jewish representation in banking and media (or Congress or the SCOTUS) is also anti-Semitism. Don’t be an anti-Semite, ACCEPT Israel as your first priority. Jews are proven to be smarter than whites according to IQ which only doesn’t exist when it shows white superiority to a colored race. Some anti-Semitic doubters might point to IQ studies showing Israel to have a national average marginally better than the US black average, but this is absurd. Jews are the chosen people of God according to ancient jewish literature. And because Jesus.

  3. do you take the jew balls in your mouth as well and get a little taint too? Hitler was right.

  4. We do not need to support Israel as our top priority.

    There are far more important things that are candidates for our top priority. Israel can be one of our lower priorities. Nevertheless, we should continue pledging our allegiance to the great nation of Israel.

  5. Wow, I cant believe all the hate towards the benevolent Jews. It is always amazing to me to see people that have made the same mistake as over 90 other countries in history and call for their extermination or expulsion.

    Why is it so hard to see that without the Jews there would be no history as we would all still be living in caves and clubbing our women?

    You haters need to GROW UP!
