Israel is positioned at the crossroads of Jihad and the free world, at the intersection between the industry of death and evil, on the one hand, and freedom, gender equality and human rights on the other. The free world cannot lose this battle.

The “progressive circles” embedded in academia and the media provide justification for those who attack Israel and the West. Neither the West nor Israel is immune from criticism, and yet all of the West's and Israel's transgressions pale in comparison to the threat posed by the jihadist movement and its ramifications to the very existence of the free world.

The time has come for us to raise our heads and declare categorically: in this instance, there is no symmetry. The values ​​of morality are opposite to the values ​​of immorality. The time for firmness has come: it is imperative that we defeat the axis of evil led by Iran, the jihadist movement and its branches, from Hamas to ISIS, from Hezbollah to Boko Haram. Israel cannot carry this burden alone. Every person, every organization, every country that still believes in the values ​​of freedom and equality, must participate in this fight. Because if Israel's hands are tied, if the false narrative proclaiming that Israel is the “aggressor” and Hamas the “victim” prevails, this will mean the fall of the free world. This can't happen.

In the 1930s, the free world was unable to recognize the fact that it faced a real threat. The price was devastating. Sixty million people were murdered and killed, including six million Jews who perished in the most horrific death industry in history. It is worth remembering that in 1933 the Oxford Students' Union resolved “That this House will not under any circumstances fight for its King, for its country.” 275 students supported the motion and 153 against it. Winston Churchill understood the tragic ramifications of the motion, and several weeks after its passage he called it: “That abject, squalid, shameless confession is a very disturbing and repugnant symptom.” Other universities followed Oxford's model and adopted similar motions. Just this week, after the magnitude of the atrocities committed by Hamas became public, the Harvard Student Union declared its support for its heinous actions. Is history repeating itself?

However, there is a difference between the past and the present. In the 1930s it was not yet clear that hitler was planning a genocide and the conquest of the world. Today, this is obvious and evident. The Islamic State is not alone. Hamas leaders have in the past called for “the conquest of Rome and, from there, the two Americas and Eastern Europe,” and official Hamas television calls on Allah to kill Christians and Jews “to the last.” Sunni Islamist leader Sheikh Yusuf Al-Qaradawi incites Muslims to complete the work started by Adolf Hitlerand the leader of Hezbollah, Hassan Nasrallah, determines that “the Jews will gather from all parts of the world in occupied Palestine, not to bring about the antichrist and the end of the world, but Allah, the Glorified and Most High, wants to save them from having to go to the ends of the world, for they have gathered in one place, and there the final and decisive battle will take place.”

Harvard students who support Hamas should be aware of this. Instead of teaching them about the past and the present, about the threat to the free world, many of their teachers portray Israel as a villainous monster and Hamas as an innocent victim. Judith Butler He has stated in the past that Hamas and Hezbollah are “social movements that are progressive, that are on the left, that are part of the global left.” Similarly, the former leader of the British Labor party Jeremy Corbyn He refused this week to condemn Hamas. Noam Chomskyone of the world's leading intellectuals, traveled to Lebanon to meet with Nasralla. The parade continues. Slavoj Zizek, a prominent progressive philosopher, supports the Iranian nuclear weapons program. The Italian philosopher Gianni Vattimo has advocated shooting “Zionist bastards” and raising money for Hamas. He also wrote an article in support of the Iranian demand for the obliteration of Israel. This is not an insubstantial parade of intellectuals. Even the Middle East Studies Association (MESA) recently passed a resolution to join the BDS movement, which supports the destruction of the Jewish state. Barely insubstantial, this trend progressed to become an intellectual Parade of Shame.

The War of the Free World (Second and final part)

One of the most ridiculous claims being made, namely “you can't imprison two million people without paying a terrible price”, is simply false hyperbole. First of all, Hamas is not short of money. The organization did not invest its funds in civil welfare, education or medical care. Instead, the organization chose to devote billions to creating a terrorist infrastructure, establishing a munitions industry, and a strategic network of underground tunnels. In stages prior to the attack, more than twenty thousand Gazans left the Gaza Strip daily to work in Israel. Hundreds of trucks arrived every day to supply food and other supplies. Public services—water, gasoline, and electricity—were supplied regularly. Second, the blockade was partial and its objective was to prevent the smuggling of Iranian weapons into the Gaza Strip. Nobody wanted the blockade.

When Hamas won the 2006 elections and took control of the Gaza Strip, the “Quartet” (the United States, Russia, the EU and the UN) proposed that the Hamas government commit to non-violence, recognize the right of Israel to exist and accept the current Middle East peace agreements in exchange for vital aid to the Palestinians. The German Chancellor Angela Merkel He stated that “it was inconceivable” that the European Union would support the Hamas regime unless it condemned terrorism and recognized Israel's right to exist. It only took one day for the Hamas leader, Ismail Haniyehwill reject the offer outright.

A year later, in 2007, Hamas violently took control of the Gaza Strip, killing hundreds of people, often throwing opponents off rooftops. Indoctrination in the extermination of the Jews begins in preschool age. Once again, the international community proposed support in exchange for policy changes. And again, Haniyeh rejected the proposal. Continued rocket fire from Gaza into Israel in 2014 led to Operation Protective Edge. European Union ministers proposed aid in exchange for the “disarmament of all terrorist organizations.” In addition, they presented a detailed proposal for a special UN mission to Gaza.

The European Council also presented an official plan, according to which aid was conditional on disarmament. But in 2017, the new leader of Hamas, Yahya Sinwar He made it clear that “Hamas would never recognize Israel.” The following year, in February 2018, against the backdrop of rising border tensions, the EU once again proposed aid in exchange for disarmament. Prosperity or terror? Welfare or death industries? Once again, Hamas chose terror.

Moshir Al-Masri, a senior Hamas official, clarified in the past how Hamas views the term “ceasefire”: “The resistance dictionary defines the term 'calm' as preparation for the next campaign. Our resistance will continue to build up its arsenal and develop and manufacture amazing new components for new systems.” And this is precisely what Hamas did. Why did this happen? Because Hamas is an offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood, whose death industry principles were defined by its founder, Hassan al-Banna, in 1938. Not welfare. Not prosperity. Not rehabilitation. Not education. Death. But the ideology of Hamas, its rejection of the proposals of the international community, its insistence on the continuation of the blockade despite the suffering of the inhabitants of Gaza, do not influence the media of the free world.

This self-deception amounts to self-destruction.

On the same day that Hamas killers massacred hundreds of young Israelis celebrating at the Nova Festival, a Palestinian-British academic, Dr. Yara Hawari, wrote: “Decolonization is not a metaphor.” She could not live a single day under Hamas' reign of terror. She admires the Hamas government for one reason only. Academics only talk about “decolonization.” Hamas provides the practical interpretation of the term because it deals with the killing of Jews. The theory that defines Zionism as colonialism is one of the main fabrications of that line of thought.

Were my grandparents, who fled Yemen more than a century ago, settlers? Or the Jews fleeing pogroms in Russia? Or the destitute Holocaust survivors who arrived after World War II? The problem is that this lie continues to prevail and provides a tailwind to Iran, Jihad and terrorists. It does not encompass all of the Western media or all of academia, but the propaganda of lies is destroying the free world from within.

In 2014, an American intellectual, Sam Harris published an article that concludes: “The truth is that we are all living in Israel. "It's just that some of us haven't realized it yet." I wonder what has to happen for academia, the media, and the free world to realize this simple truth. In the end, the world will understand. Only one question remains open: Will ten million deaths be necessary, or can the axis of evil be stopped now, at a much lower cost?
