On October 7, the Jewish State of Israel was shocked by the brutal invasion and savage  attack of Hamas and other radical Islamic genocidal death cults, all proxies of Iran. In the north, Israel was attacked by Hezbollah, and in the south, by the Yemenite Houthis, while other smaller Sunni and Shiite Jihadist groups also joined the attacks. All are sponsored by Iran, Qatar, Turkey, and other radical Muslim groups affiliated with the global Muslim Brotherhood and approved by China and Russia.

As a result, Israel’s nearly 10 million citizens (of whom nearly eight million are Jews) are fighting a war for survival. Standing strong against these Islamic death cults, Israel is also indirectly fighting for 2 billion Christians, 1.2 billion Hindus, and 1 billion Muslims, who are opposed to these Islamic terror organizations. In a perfect world, one would expect Israel to receive aid and acclaim from the civilized world, particularly from the democracies. Alas, this is not the case.But why?

Why is the U.S. – until recently –  nearly alone in its (now rapidly weakening) support for Israel? Why is no country calling for unconditional surrender by Hamas? Why is the world so conflicted in determining ‘right’ from ‘wrong’ and ‘good’ from ‘evil’?  Why are so many countries supporting a Gaza ceasefire without also demanding the release of the hostages? Why are numerous countries threatening to cut or eliminate military sales to Israel?  Why are they calling for a Palestinian terror state next to Israel? Why is the US government calling for and funding efforts for a regime change in Israel, its ally, but not in Iran, Russia, China, Cuba, Venezuela and Qatar, its enemies? Why is the Biden administration not supplying Israel with the full list of armaments that it is seeking? Why don’t western democracies support Israel’s fight against Islamist death cults committed to the devastation of all infidels, including Christians, Hindus, and even other Muslims.We at Save The West offer the following observations:  

1. The rise of the vocal radical left and aggressive radical Islam (both inherently anti-Israel and antisemitic) in Western democracies frightens their political leaders, who fear   they will lose elections if they support the Jewish State of Israel.

2. Young and older voters in democracies are highly influenced by the false narratives of the leftist and Islamist-oriented academia, media, and social media.                               

3. Public opinion can be manipulated by the forces of ‘evil’ until they manage to reverse reality: accusing Israel, the victim of Hamas’ self-documented and advertised genocidal attack, of genocide.                                                                                                     

4. Jewish populations are very small in democracies outside of Israel. Their voting power and their voices are drowned out by the voices of the antisemitic left and Islamist populations.

5. Political leaders in the 120 mostly Christian democratic countries often do not feel a natural affinity to the plight of Jews. Ironically, these Christian countries do not even seem to care about the plight of Christians in countries where Christian minorities are persecuted by radical Muslims (particularly in Africa and Asia).

6. Many Muslim leaders overwhelmingly wish that Israel would defeat the radical Islamist proxies of Iran, but fear the reaction of the Islamists their own countries.

7. Globalist organizations such as the UN and the World Economic Forum (WEF) are regularly siding with the radical left and radical Islam, thus imposing their agenda on the rest of the world.

8. Many political leaders are influenced, intimidated, bribed, or blackmailed by growing radical Left parties and Islamists organizations and states (including Qatar, Turkey, Iran, Malaysia, and China) into adopting anti-Israel policies.

So, what can be done?

The major implication is that Israel must eliminate the radical Islamist evil, with as much American support as it can garner. The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) have the intelligence and expertise to prevail over the next two years of non-stop fighting on all fronts. After all, Jews represent the mother of Western Civilization and its foundation is based on democracy and the rule of law.

Right now, Israel is fighting to save the approximately 50% of the world population that lives in and benefits from democracy. But the tiny Jewish state is forced to do the lion’s share of the fighting, with little or no help from others.

The long-term ramifications of the world’s anti-Israel, antisemitic behavior is that the mostly Christian, democratic countries are not only failing to protect Israel in its fight against Hamas, they are also failing to protect themselves from radical Islamic cultural and physical terror organizations.

By the year 2100, half of the mostly Christian democracies will be taken over by a coalition of radical left/communists and radical Islamists. Christians lost 55 countries to radical Muslims 1,400 years ago. Today, democracies with major Christian populations seem oblivious to the Islamists threat and are giving up their freedoms, while Israel gains strength and confidence by its upcoming victory over ‘evil’.

During the remainder of the twenty-first century, the number of Christians in the world may well decline from two to one billion due to their leader’s appeasement of the growing radical Left, infused by Islamists and supported by their historically antisemitic behavior. This behavior thereby appeases the forces of communism and Islamism, and emboldens them to take over country after country.
