Jewish Lives Matter


Here we go again. Israel is once again being attacked by coordinated acts of violence encouraged by the leaders of Hamas and the U.S.-funded Palestinian Authority.

And what are Pres. Obama and Sec. of State Kerry’s responses? It is Israel’s fault because of increased settlements. Nonsense. The Jewish people throughout the world and Israel are being attacked by Jew-hating jihadists who want to annihilate them.

The bottom line: When innocent people are attacked, they have a right to defend themselves, whether in America or in Israel.

And why aren’t American leaders, especially the Jews, saying “Never Again”?
