Secure Freedom Minute: Israel’s Fighting our War, Too


Israel’s Fighting our War, Too

This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute.

It is now widely recognized that the terrorist group Hamas is indistinguishable from the terrorist group ISIS. Both believe their god mandates the use of violent jihad to destroy all unbelievers and achieve the global triumph of Islamic rule. 

Consequently, just as ISIS poses a threat to our security which justifies America’s use of crushing military power to defeat it, the utter elimination of Hamas is not just desirable. It’s essential.

That is true, of course, for the Jewish State. It is also true for us. Witness the appeal for and response here to the “Day of Jihad” Hamas issued last week.  

In short, Israel is fighting our war and that of Western civilization more generally. Consequently, we must not relieve the pressure on Hamas or otherwise embolden such jihadis by publicly second-guessing her efforts to achieve its decisive defeat.
