If you’re watching the world-wide view of the conflict in Israel right now, you have probably already noticed a few things.
First, the UN has exposed itself as not only totally unable to complete their mission, but to actually favor the terrorists and fascists. When the leader of the UN, Kofi Annan, comes out and accuses the IDF of attacking UN forces, while ignoring the actual attacks by Hezbollah on UN forces, and refusing to withdraw the UN from areas where Hezbollah is using to attack Israeli civilians, it is a sign that he is no longer a friend of peace. The UN has chosen a side in this conflict. It is not Israel’s side.
EU, Russia, and other proponents of an immediate cease-fire have been shown to be totally unable to put their words to action. A lot of talk, yes. But to what effect? They are now officially a yapping chihuahua.
Meanwhile, Canada, the USA, and Australia have decided to take the hard road. They have said publically they support Israel, and have been using their power to do so. Israel is still fighting. The USA is now the only leader left in the world.
We may not be popular, but leaders don’t have to be popular to lead. We may not be loved, but leaders don’t have to be loved to lead. We may not be trusted, but leaders do not have to be trusted to lead.
We are effective while everyone else is unable to enact their words.
We are the only leaders left.
