I'm quickly growing tired of paleocons and phony traditionalists couching their support for Israel's latest military misadventure in the sort of "defense of the West" rhetoric that is the fail safe of all justification-seeking imperialists.
Let's get real people.
Israel owes it's existence to the very worst expression of globalism on the face of the Earth, the United Nations. As is the case with most internationalist assaults on common sense, the UN giving birth to the state of Israel, has harmed exactly those people it was intended to help. In seeking to give the Jews a state of their own so that the unspeakable "it" would "never again" happen, the one-worlders planted an ethnically nationalist state in the middle of the Arab World and filled it with regional minorities. Given these realities about the origins of Israel, it seems far more honest to note that the state of European Jews on the Arabian Peninsula, is in fact a case of Western offense and incursion. You would think those folks most opposed to massive social engineering programs would be critical of such nonsense, but evidently that sort of consistency is too much to ask for these days.
"Defending" an artificial Western entity like the State of Israel should be of little concern to paleocons or traditionalists. It is high time the Israeli's justify their own existence and Americans start acting in our national interests. No more foreign aid, no more weapons, no more military pacts. If Israelis want to be covered by "Western" security pacts, move back to the West, or start lobbying for statehood.
