I couch my comments with reference to Bari Weiss’s brilliant oration in her letter to the Times, and reflect on her remarks as a metaphor and dire warning regarding a concomitant issue which is of profound concern to all of us. I do not seek to embrace a platform of political allegiance, but only to speak to reality. The avowed policies of left-leaning politicos engender the destabilization and ultimately the destruction of modern day Israel as the homeland for the Jews. I will not belabor this statement with references to the hackneyed and often barbaric agendas espoused by the enablers who embrace a particular hate and loathing of Eretz Yisrael, where most of us have families and where many of us have family members in the astonishing, but not invincible IDF. This our homeland which we love as our own. Eliot Engel’s defeat is the bellwether. Be guided accordingly.
