Op-Ed: An American Zionist Response to Mr. Putin
Irwin GraulichIrwin N. Graulich is a well known Jewish motivational speaker on Judaism,...
The American people have read your op-ed piece in The New York Times, and observed the concern you expressed about our country and the world. Therefore, we would like to speak to you directly, since it seems that there is insufficient communication between us.
The bottom line to the "fear of war" described in your article, Mr. Putin, is that it will show clearly, for all the world to see, Russian inadequacies. America's hi-tech missiles will destroy whatever they are programmed to do, pointing to the great superiority of American military technology, and the inferiority of Russian weaponry. There is no opposing Russian anti-missile system that will stop our new cruise missiles.
Who will then want to purchase Russian equipment with 20th century technology, when America has far superior 21st century technology that is unstoppable?
Your article mentions Israel twice and its newfound Zionist tendencies are not quite convincing. American Zionists know that Israel is a giant thorn in Russia's side because the Israel Defense Forces have consistently decimated their opponents, proving, time and again, America's superiority and Russian inferiority.
Imagine, no more contracts from the Arab and Muslim world, when they finally realize that Russian weaponry can only be used in a civil war against civilian rebels, who have pretty much used their defense budgets on ebay. It is a brand new world with your latest weapons being American Botox injections and an op-ed article. Handsome and wrinkleless to appeal to those Americans who are media-obsessed, you, Mr. Putin, not only believe that America is not exceptional, but that we are gullible fools. An incredible about face, the article makes Mr. KGB into the reincarnation of Gandhi who loves the American people, knowing what is best for us.
The article makes an effort to somehow link an American strike in Syria, with negative consequences to the Iranian nuclear crisis, and - lo and behold - the Israeli-Paletinian conflict. You only forgot about the linkage to global warming.
So, according to you, force has proven ineffective and pointless? Does that include force used against Hitler, fascist Italy and the Japanese Empire who attacked Pearl Harbor. Force, when used properly, can be the only thing to bring about peace.
Your article touched every American with its reference to God creating us all equal. But when a non-practicing, non-involved person, who was an atheist and may still be, invokes God, they usually do so for their own agenda. Of course we were all created equal. However, that certainly does not mean that we grow equally. Some are smarter and some are not. Some are good/moral and some are evil/immoral. Your logic tells us that God created you and Adolf Hitler as equals. So what?
