The Patriot Post® · Israel's Anniversary
On May 14, 1948, the modern state of Israel came into being and was immediately recognized by the U.S. and even the Soviet Union. But the next day, Israel was attacked by the Transjordanian Army, the Arab Legion, Egypt, Syria, Lebanon and Iraq. Israel defended itself, survived, and remained a strong U.S. ally for 60 years. Until Barack Obama came along and decided that Israel wasn’t really that important. In fact, it almost seems that Obama is intent on destroying Israel. His secretary of state, John Kerry, warned that Israel could become an “apartheid state,” and virtually every Obama meeting with Israel or policy move in the Middle East has been adversarial to our old ally. Israel’s anniversary would be a good time to hit a real reset.
