Once before, from May to August 1940, America’s fate was being decided “over there.” In the Cabinet War Rooms in London during those fateful days, Winston Churchill made the decision not to negotiate with mass murderers, not to give in. Despite being bombed on a daily basis, Churchill and his War Cabinet colleagues stood firm — and in that process, this Dreadnought Democracy was America’s shield. Churchill’s courage protected us, too.
Before Osama bin Laden ever dreamed of flaming towers collapsing in Manhattan, Adolf Hitler dreamed the same dream. He even took steps to equip Nazi suicide bombers, to bring about the destruction of what he then regarded as a Jewish Citadel. We can thank God that Winston Churchill stood between Hitler and us. And we will thank God if Benjamin Netanyahu does the same thing for us now.
Don’t wait, Israel: Shield America. Strike Iran’s nuclear weapons program before it’s too late for all of us.
