Independence or dependence? Israel faces a dilemma

Is Israel truly independent?

In today's world, the search to end global conflicts and violent confrontations between nations has, ostensibly, become an urgent priority. Ironically, Israel the Jewish homeland that was reborn with G-D's help after the unspeakable Holocaust and which for more than six decades has endeavored to negotiate a peaceful solution to  the Arab Israeli conflict...is now being singled out as the "obstacle to peace".
With every passing day, ugly  invective  emerges  from the mouths of leaders of so called  'cultured and civilized 'countries as well as from the 'bright lights in academic universities, condemning Israel as a 'racist apartheid state' and declaring it has no right to exist!
No matter! Despite their vile efforts  to boycott, to isolate, and  to destroy Medinat Yisrael which is the aim of  the accelerating Arab terrorist attacks, Israel is celebrating its 68th year of  independence as a strong and sovereign Jewish State!

By relying on the 'peace plans' of  nations that are at best indifferent to of our  fate, and at worst, want  to see Israel altogether eliminated, the Jewish State is courting unparalled disaster!
Still, the question arises "Is Israel truly independent?' More often than not, the decisions made by successive Israeli governments that affect the Jewish State, are based on the premise "ma yomru hagoyim" (What will the nations say"?)
This craven capitulation to the dictates of leaders of foreign governments such as U.S. President Obama has often proved detrimental and caused more pressure to be exerted on Israel to make additional dangerous concessions to implacable Arab enemies.
Among other self-flagellating rituals in which Israel regularly engages that tend to belie her claim to independence, is the seemingly chronic need to explain every action that is undertaken by the IDF to defend and protect the Jewish homeland. (Perhaps what is needed is a "Minister of Explanation)".
These  futile attempts to 'explain' Israel's justified defensive actions only succeed in eliciting condemnations by that bastion of "morality" (sic),the United Nations, which continues to turn a "blind eye" to the multitude of Arab atrocities that are being  perpetrated upon innocent Jewish men, women and children - and their own fellow-Arabs and Muslims.

Despite the fact that Israel is reported to be the main superpower in the Middle East, I believe the obtuse policy of its leaders in allowing those Arabs who display hostility to the existence of the state,  to remain in the country for fear of negative world opinion, is yet another glaring example of Israel's non independence.

By relying on the 'peace plans' of  nations that are at best indifferent to of our  fate, and at worst, want  to see Israel altogether eliminated, the Jewish State is courting unparalled disaster!
In the final analysis, as the prophecies of our Holy Torah clearly record, Israel was reborn when G-D, Blessed is His Name, mercifully ended the millennia long and painful exile to return the Jewish people to our ancient homeland, Eretz Yisrael.

Therefore , Israel should cease its foolish and non-productive attempts to curry favor with the world that for generations has persecuted Jews in pogroms, Crusades, Inquisitions and 'the final solution" of Nazi, Germany.] To be truly independent, Israel can only depend on our one Eternal ally, and begin to do whatever must be done for the survival of Medinat Yisrael.
