Open Letter to Americans Who Love Israel

Will Americans really elect a president at such a perilous time, who seems to be clueless about foreign affairs, especially with regard to Israel and the Middle East?  Barack Obama has made so many conflicting statements on these all-important matters that it behooves every American to think -- and think hard again -- before casting our ballots.

When I read "The Diary of Ann Frank" in the 4th grade, I could not help but believe that the German people had to be either truly evil or truly stupid to have allowed Adolf Hitler to obtain such complete power over them, primarily through free elections.  Yet I've come to realize that the Germans were taken in by the same temptations that have always been such successful lures for men's souls.   Money.  Scapegoating wrong instead of accepting personal responsibility.  Utopian fantasies.   Collective redemption.  All of these were present in the Nazi lure; all are present today in Obama's candidacy.

I've written an Open Letter to All Americans Who Love Israel, which can be read here:  

Of all our allies, Israel is the most vulnerable.  Are the Jews going to be once again the "canary in the coal mine"?  I don't know, but it's certainly looking that way.  And I know which side I'm on.  Do you?  Does your neighbor?  Will American voters now do to the Jewish State, Israel, what the Germans did to European Jews? 

Good questions to ask before November 4th, in my opinion.
