Canary in the Coal Mine

It is my belief that the pacifist anti-war war Left in this country means to use Israel to barter for peace with Islam and its leaders the Islamists. Like Europe's sacrifice of the the Sudetenland to Nazi German, the result would be catastrophic war of annihilation between the West and Islam. Winston Churchill spoke of Europe's appeasement of Hitler thusly:

"Britain and France had to choose between war and dishonour. They chose dishonour. They will have war." - From speech in House of Commons about Munich settlement (1938)

This point deserves emphasis. The anti-war Left's goals are exactly what will bring us to a real and utterly devestating war. A war which will touch nearly everyone's life brutally.

Richard Baehr at American Thinker put it nicely about Isreal:

It is not hard to argue that Israel remains a vital strategic ally of the United States. The focal point of the worldwide Islamic fundamentalist assault on the West is in Israel’s neighborhood, and Israel defends itself. Some of Israel’s fiercest enemies are the same nations attempting to undermine American interests in Iraq and Lebanon, namely Iran and Syria. Israel shares intelligence on radical Islamist groups with the US. The two countries jointly work on development of many weapons systems – missile and rocket defense, drones, aircraft missile avoidance systems. The two countries cooperate on homeland security, policing, civil disaster planning, and counter-terrorism strategies.

Israel is in many ways a canary in the coal mine for the West. The war against Israel highlights the strategies and tactics of radical groups worldwide. And Israel’s survival and resilience demonstrate that the West can triumph against its foes if it marshals its considerable strength and maintains the determination to succeed. The sacrifice of Israel would be an enormous gift to the enemies of the West, and only increase their appetite and belief in their eventual victory against other Western targets.
