...There are those who expect our small and brave country to pay, once again, the price for the blindness and indifference of nations of the world to the fate of the Jews. It is shameful and unfortunate that there are those among us who display, for petty political agendas, that same carelessness, and try to divert the public's attention from the basic fact that Iran does not differentiate between Left and Right and not even between Jews and Arabs in Israel.

The U.S. government is involved up to its neck in Israel's upcoming elections. U.S. President Barack Obama and his advisers have been trying to grab our country by the throat in an attempt to coerce Israel to act against its existential interests.
The White House prefers that the weak Left win the March 17 elections and establish a leftist government that would have no problem with making dangerous concessions such as returning to the 1967 borders, dividing Jerusalem and granting the Palestinians the right of return.
At a time when the whole world is under attack by Islamic terrorism, Obama is determined to sign a deal with the regime of the ayatollahs in Iran that would enable Iran to continue advancing its nuclear program without interference. An American president who enables terrorists to get their hands on nuclear weapons would be signing a death warrant for Western civilization.
Furthermore, Obama has yet to free himself from the misguided notion that has been dictating U.S. policy in the Middle East for many years, according to which a resolution to Israeli-Palestinian conflict based an Israeli return to the 1967 borders would turn the region into the most peaceful place in the world. This line of thought is something only Israel would pay the price for when reality sets in.
The ongoing attempt to hide America's conduct over Iran should raise serious concerns in every human being. America's demonstration of weakness and fatigue in the negotiations, its treachery towards its allies, and its strong desire to create a facade of peace and tolerance poses a serious threat to the entire world.
There are those who expect our small and brave country to pay, once again, the price for the blindness and indifference of nations of the world to the fate of the Jews. It is shameful and unfortunate that there are those among us who display, for petty political agendas, that same carelessness, and try to divert the public's attention from the basic fact that Iran does not differentiate between Left and Right and not even between Jews and Arabs in Israel.
It is vital to tell the world in general, and American legislators in particular, that the Jewish nation is no longer a passive agent to be trampled on. We have waited 2,000 years for the moment we can raise our heads, stare reality in the face and promise ourselves: Never again. Both my parents are Holocaust survivors who taught me that in times of trouble Jews can rely only on themselves. Yad Vashem's Righteous Among the Nations Avenue is the smallest of the avenues.
For the past six years, the Statue of Liberty at the entrance of New York harbor has been bowing its head in shame over America's capitulation, moral obfuscation and loss of determination. A statue that was once a sanctuary of strength has succumbed to the spirit of intoxicating ultra-modernism. Compared to it, Israel's symbol, the Knesset Menorah, shines brightly as a beacon of Israel's willingness to fight for the Jewish people right's to live in security and peace in their homeland.
The Jewish month of Adar reminds us all a time when the Jewish people escaped a cynical annihilation attempt by a Persian king. Today, as before, the Jewish people's faith and endurance will bring them deliverance and relief.
We have a strong army and a bold government that will foil any malicious scheme. In the years to come, after Obama's legacy turns out to be a false overpriced illusion, the Jewish people in Israel will still be a light unto the nations determined to fight the forces of darkness, defend the moral clarity and values and ensure the continuity of mankind. After all, this has been the Jewish calling since the days of Abraham, for all of eternity.
