We Cannot Abandon Israel

By Hugh Hewitt

"As Israel's offensive in Gaza comes under increasing worldwide criticism, American support for our most reliable ally in the region must not falter. Israel, as the Atlantic's Robert Kaplan noted recently, is really battling Iran, and the mullahs must be opposed if their expansionism and nuclear dreams are to be thwarted. Civilian casualties are tragic, and would be much fewer if the Hamas terrorists would refuse to use human shields, but while Israel must continue its efforts to limit civilian casualties, it cannot allow the tactics of the terrorists to render Hamas invulnerable.

The bottom line is Israel wants peace and the rockets to stop. If Hamas and Fatah would just accept peace with Israel, the region could boom and the Palestinians thrive. We can pray for such a result--but we must also support our Democratic friends in their war with the terrorists."
