Israel's Bright Star

Reader comment on item: India, the Most Pro-Israel Country

Submitted by Ysrael is Awesome! (United States), Jan 18, 2010 at 16:09

I am Indian American that has been immersed in Jewish culture growing up in New York. There is no better example of how a nation can survive amongst war-mongering/hate-filled dualists. Israel is near and dear to my heart. Why do the Judaic people have to justify their existence? Have any other people on the earth ever been so persecuted? It makes not logical sense. Ever since the modern nation of Israel was declared free in 1948, it has had to justify it's existence.

No one is saying that Israel is perfect or that it has never made a political trespass. What I AM SAYING is Israel will do what it must to protect it's sovreignty and it's citizenry. "Shoah" can NEVER happen again. The Arab world exists in a world of moral duality. That is a cultural paradigm that is not compatible with any modern nation. This is the crux of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict. Until the Arab world adopt moral equivalency instead of moral duality, the issues will persist!

A good example of the incredible moral equivalency that Israel demonstrates is this: According to Peggy Shapiro: "Despite its small size, Israel sent a large contingent of highly-trained aid workers to quake-stricken Haiti. Two jumbo jets carrying more than 220 doctors, nurses, civil engineers, and other Israeli army personnel, including a rescue team and field hospital, were among the first rescue teams to arrive in Haiti. In fact, they were the first foreign backup team to set up medical treatment at the partially collapsed main hospital in Port-au-Prince. Yigal Palmor, Israel's Foreign Ministry spokesman said, "It's a large delegation and we're prepared to send more." The international agencies that condemn Israel for its "disproportionate response" when it is attacked are not mentioning Israel's disproportionate response to human suffering. The U.S. has pledged 100 million and sent supplies and personnel. The U.K. pledged $10 million and sent 64 firemen and 8 volunteers.China, a country with a population of 1,325,639,982 compared to Israel's 7.5 million sent 50 rescuers and seven journalists. The 25 Arab League nations sent nothing."

I love America! I love being an American. I love Israel and her beloved chosen children! I love India and her many contributions to mankind!
