Former Israeli Prime Minister and co-founder of the modern state of Israel, Golda Meir: "We can forgive the Arabs for killing our children. We cannot forgive them for forcing us to kill their children. We will only have peace with the Arabs when they love their children more than they hate us.”
This understanding is why Israel has better national security than we do - they understand the evil that is arrayed against them, and they understand that their very survival is at stake. God forbid we turn our backs on our long-time ally, but I fear Barack Obama will do just that.
There's my two cents.
