Advancing Israeli Sovereignty
In a world of overwhelming Rembrandts, sometimes it is hard to see the Chagall's; viewing the State of Israel with promise and not the deprecatory insinuations of a unappreciative and déclassé world view. The Israel Lobby, whether the formal association that tries so hard to elevate a world-class status for promoting the interests of the Jewish Nation; or the more informal influences of international focus on allowing the Jewish Nation its proper place in the international societies, appears at many times as the 'also-ran' competitor amongst the evidently eminently more desirable contenders for establishing a peace in the Middle East that does not necessarily see a democratic Israel participating.
That a noticeable lack of Jewish support from the Diaspora around the world and similar secularist attitudes from within Israel itself appears reluctant to support, or shall it be said, does not support at all, permanent Israeli sovereignty over the heartland of Israel, will a more developed sense of defending Israeli sovereignty come in these difficult times? Or is the creation of a dilemma that not too many recognize as a world class tragedy actually in the making. What a pity: why, one might ask?
The world is at a threshold of thermonuclear contentions of potentially cataclysmic proportions; and why has it not yet manifested with all the potential for a tactical theatre clash leading to a confrontation no one is ready for? Not even the Iranian Islamic Regime's sabre rattling through Hizbollah, the PA's Iranian Hamas proxy, or the contentious threats from the north to overrun the region is out of the question: what has stopped them? Israel and their lobby has/have been in the background; but who is willing to listen? What is going to happen when no one is willing to listen anymore? Maybe Chagall's Rabbi No. 2 has an answer if one peers closely into those eyes, or is the delusion sufficient to blind all but those who know.
