Israel’s War, the United States, and Muslims

Israel’s attacks on the Gaza strip may be seen by the world is somewhat necessary, but the US will reap its own consequences from this conflict. The US has long been a close ally of Israel, and we have had a part in arming Israel as well as sending billions of aid to them every year. The Muslim world knows this. Israel may be attacking Gaza, but the Muslim world is a country without borders. If you attack some of them, all of them are ticked off, and they love to play the revenge game. They know what we’ve done to support Israel, and in somehow and some way, we will be “punished” for it. None of this would befall us, of course, if we followed the foreign policy of the founding fathers: “Peace, commerce and honest friendship with all nations; entangling alliances with none.” Thomas Jefferson

We haven’t followed that advice for over a hundred years. Actually, Abraham Lincoln started it with his war against Southern Independence, and it’s been downhill ever since. We can support Israel without arming them and sending billions to them, we just have to get our government to see that.
