Not a fiasco, but a victory

All sides—the “critics” of Israel, her supporters, and everyone in between—agree that the “peace flotilla” affair is a disaster for Israel. I disagree. I say it is a victory for Israel, for truth, and for civilization in its eternal war against barbarism. The affair has not discredited Israel, but its “critics.” It has made it plain beyond a shadow of doubt that the “critics” are not the high-minded humanitarians they claim to be, but remorseless enemies of Israel who deny that nation the right to exist, as shown by the fact that they have portrayed Israel’s perfectly legitimate and necessary act of self-defense as a crime against humanity. The “critics” have thus uncovered the truth about themselves and can no longer credibly deny it: that they are allies of Hamas in its jihadist war of extermination against the Jewish state.

To arrive at the true and the good, falsity and evil must be exposed. Never has anti-Israelism so clearly revealed its falsity and evil to the eyes of the world as it has now done. That is change I can believe in.
