Israel is the living embodiement of what humanity should care and fight for. But in fact, the Jewish State is the most important non cause celebre Every day we receive news about how the State of Israel and its people are less and less welcomed by the international community.
The United States has slowly disengaged from its existential duties toward the tiny Jewish enclave in the Middle East, not yet in its military and political assistence, but certainly in religious and moral terms. A few years ago, it would have been unthinkable to charge Democratic Jewish Congressmen of "double loyalty" because of their security policies positions.
The United Nations has become a farce, an anti-Semitic farce, where the worst tyrants get a green light to demonize and attack the Jews and the Western values.
International culture betrayed the Jews. The renowned orchestra director Daniel Barenboim wanted to conduct a musical orchestra in Teheran, like a new Wilhelm Furtwangler, who bowed to Hitler and Goebbels. (History always repeats itself.) Meanwhile, US singer Matisyahu was banned from a Spanish festival because he is Jewish, just the way that happened to Jewish musicians in the '30s (he was later invited again after the uproar, but admitted to being frightened during the performance by the open anti-Semitism).
The Vatican, after a short season of remorse which led Pope John Paul II to establish a diplomatic dialogue with Jerusalem, now oscillates between indifference and hatred for Zionism. And even among non Catholic churches in the US, there is a new powerful campaign to boycott the State of Israel. Christians are turning their back to the Jews again.
Israel will continue to exist as a big ghetto whose only open and pacific border is the Mediterrenean sea. You understand it immediately when you land at Ben Gurion International Airport. Cameras, fences, armed guards, barbed wire, roadblocks everywhere. But the new Masada will have a happy end. This time Jews will not commit suicide.
