My Country is Under Attack. Do You Care?

In a moving Huffington Post piece, International Human Rights Lawyer Aren Ostrovsky shares his anger – no, outrage – at the neglect, ignorance, lies, and hatred with which the international community continually approaches Israel.

Ostrovsky explains that it’s not just the 600+ rockets fired from Gaza to Israel in 2012 alone, nor the 80+ fired in the last 24 hours, that outrage him.

Rather, it’s the silence (and sometimes even solidarity) shown by many in the face of terrorism. It’s allowing world leaders who have pledged to destroy Israel to work toward the genocide of the Jewish people. It’s the unchallenged anti-Israel activism of the United Nations, European Union, many mainline churches, and human rights organizations around the world. It’s the failure of so much of the world to consider both sides of a very, very complex situation.

In his article Ostrovsky pointedly asks, “Can you imagine if even one rocket was fired on Washington, London, Paris or Moscow?”

His answer, and ours: “No nation on earth can, or should, tolerate such attacks on its people.”

“You see, as most Americans were waking up this morning, and those in Europe and elsewhere around the world were going about their daily routines, here in Israel — over one million people were running for cover from a hail of rockets being rained down by Palestinian terrorists in Gaza.” – Aren Ostrovsky

    I’m an American/Christian. Still, I have NEVER understood – much less embraced – ANY kind of hatred or discrimination towards Israel/the Jewish people. I pray 4 your protection & G-d’s blessings. Amen

    G-D + ISRAEL = VICTORY G-D – ISRAEL = VICTORY
    So either way ISRAEL is bound to win as Bible prophecy predicts. Three times in JOEL´s prophecy G_D says “ISRAEL is MY land”. Nobody can destroy.

    I stand with Israel in prayer always. Only Israel can destroy itself. All the Palestinians, Hamas,Iran, UN, EU or any worldly alliance cannot destroy it. Israel can only be destroyed in the things of the God of Israel. The problem with the Jews is that they always want to be like other nations of the world. In the process, they copy things (SIN) that their God forbids and make Him go on to punish them. Have you seen the gay and lesbian clubs in Tel Aviv recently? Irael, just go back to your God and He will come back to you. Only then willyou understand the time and season we are all in. Can someone tell Ben. Netanyahu this please? Go back to your HOLY BOOKS where your Secret as a People and a Nation lay.

    I agree with Aren Ostrovsky and something definitely should be done about this horrible situation. I believe that the President of Israel should fire rockets and bombs on Palestine in order to go after this Hamas Terrorist group. Israel should stand and fight for themselves and I am definitely going to pray for them-Israel and its people. You have my word on that and God Bless you all in this difficult time.

    Yes, I know the situation – I lived in Israel- and yes, I do care. I try to educate people about this horrendous situation. If even one rocket should be fired at the US, we would smother the source in return with our own rockets. But we don’t live in the middle East- nor do we have arab countries on our doorstep. So people become complacent, thinking, it can’t happen here. It will sooner or later- I don’t wish this but that is likely what it will take to get people to pay attention. I share your feelings.

    Israel is indeed the “good” guy. From Israel we get up-do-date knowledge; science, health, agriculture, watering systems, etc. Israel is today a blessing for the world. Why doesn’t the world understand this ?
