Why Israel's war for peace matters!

The world’s media, most governments and the United Nations are always quick to cast blame on Israel when it fights to protect itself. This past week has been no different.

When Israel is bombarded with thousands of missiles, what is it expected to do? When the bombers place their missiles and weapons in UN-controlled schools, private homes and state hospitals, what should Israel do?

This situation requires a true understanding of the history between Israel and its neighbors. This battle will not end with the destruction of Israel but will continue to the western world.

Every life is important and the loss of innocent life is crushing to anyone who values life. Hamas is using innocent Palestinian lives purposely as human shields and then using the media to exploit their deaths. The world community must realized they are being manipulated and stop supporting Hamas. If the Palestinians want peace then they should work with the Israel and the world community to remove Hamas.

I ask that you watch the following two brief videos to gain a basic understanding on what is at stake for Israel and the civilized world.

The Middle East conflict is framed as one of the most complex problems in the world. But, in reality, it's very simple. Israelis want to live in peace and are willing to accept a neighboring Palestinian state. And most Palestinians do not want Israel to exist.
