TODAY, WE ARE ALL ISRAELI

There has been a strange twist in the latest war between Israel and Terrorists. In the past, CNN would run Christiane Amanpour over to the terrorist side and show any and all suffering of women, children, old men, young men, camels and donkeys and of course, terrorists themselves. The rest of the world, including American Democrats, would then howl with rage over the actions the meany Israeli's were taking. The ever feckless UN would quake with dissaproval. European Union members would weep for the "poor' terrorists and their plite. The American President would rush the Secretary of State over there to force a quick end to the Israeli actions. Dick Morris has an great article this morning which tell us how the Impeached President Bill Clinton stabbed the Israeli's in the back in 1996 here


What is different now. First, CNN does not have a monopoly on the news. While they certainly went back to the old playbook and rushed the ever available Chrisitane Amanpour to Lebanon and were duped into showing a propaganda piece for Hezballah, FOX was in Israel showing the suffering of the Israeli's. Second, The European Union has mostly been silent. Third, the President of the United States did not immeidately send Condi Rice over there to quell the violence, but instead stood up at a world meeting of the G8 and told the world that he supported Israel's right to defend itself and was in no hurry to stop the Israeli attacks on the terrorists.

The world, specifically, the United States recognizes that the Israeli's are fighting the same enemies in Iraq, Afghanistan and other parts of the world. We have recognized that this is part of the Global War on Terror. The American populace is behind Israel on this one (except, of course, the Democrats in Congress).

Today we are all Isreali's
