The Jewish-American hawk
By Tabitha Korol

This writer decided to find out what a Jewish-American hawk actually is.

I e-conversed with a self-proclaimed Hawk. We discussed why the US continues to fund the UN, since it represents autocracies, and why President Obama reaches out to them, although they mean us harm. The Hawk agreed.

President Obama is not an ignorant man, yet he courted those nations and hosted fascists, Islamists, Communists and anarchists in the White House. He bowed to a Saudi prince and, like the Queen of England, never visited Israel although they'd both been in the neighborhood. The Hawk agreed.

Our news media, inspired by our leadership, is complicit.

David Meir Levi, writer and lecturer, wrote a recipe for Israel's conquest by presenting the nine fronts from which to breach Israel's borders.

Thomas Friedman of the New York Times has become one of Israel's leading Jewish Defamers in the media, writing distortions and falsehoods against Israel. The Hawk expressed his devotion to Caroline Glick, a superb analyst. While she is a wonderful journalist, we must never have a golden calf when seeking the truth. In this instance, in addition to Glick's thorough information, we also need guidance for a precise course of action to thwart a very malignant soldier of Islamic conquest.

To placate us sans thought process, Congress suggests sanctions against Cuba, the Soviet Union, Iran, the United Nations, but not against the Palestinians who continue to fire rockets on Israel. Palestinians are well funded from UNRWA, and received up to $900 million from the US, and more from numerous nations worldwide.

Israel needs to be supported, we agreed, but we must define support:

  • Our US government should have expressed outrage to our citizens for each terrorist death inflicted on the Israelis.

  • The media should report these murders with clarity and truth, reflect our fury and identify the guilty.

  • Our President should be telling Israel it's time to ignore words like "disproportionate," and fight to win, as though they aim to kill us — because they aim to kill us.

  • We Americans should announce that we will stand shoulder to shoulder with Israel's IDF and retaliate to stop the rockets once and for all.

And the Hawk assured me, "Here is where I am a hawk. If they bomb us, kill 10 times that number; if that doesn't work, wipe out a city."

I replied the enemy did bomb us on 9/11, and they've been bombing Israel since the Arabs first heard talk of Israel's nationhood, in the 1920s. The Hawk said nothing.

I wrote, "If we can't reach Obama, we could reach out to Congress, the Chair of the Foreign Affairs Committee, Ileana Ros-Lehtinen. She would understand because she came from a despotic country, Cuba. We asked her to address the concerns of the American people and ask specific questions of President Obama from the well of the House."

I told the Hawk of the specific questions to ask when he calls Ros-Lehtinen; they're suggested on the neveragainisnow.net website. I said, "If you're a Hawk, join me in calling Congress daily until she elicits Obama's reply." And the Hawk replied, "I don't want to rile her."

I'm reminded of the old joke about the two Jews, an anarchist and a humble tailor, who were facing the firing squad in Tzarist Russia. As the anarchist was about to be blindfolded, he recoiled, preferring to face his killers defiantly. And the humble tailor cried out, "Oy, don't make trouble!" And so it appears to be with the Hawk. Facing the annihilation of his own people, he still fears speaking out.

In the words of Thomas Jefferson, "All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent." This is a Hawk that will not fly.
