Dear America, when it comes to Israel STFU!
I am no war expert but looking at history, seems to me America needs to butt out. I am not the only one.
Al-Suwaidan also said that America no longer instills fear and respect in the world, that they have lost all their recent wars, and that they are a “curse” to anyone they support. He said that Israel only understands force and that this is the only solution for the Palestinian people.
“Blinken told [Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu that ultimately there is no military solution to Hamas.” Well, it is coming from the country whose military fled Viet Nam, Afghanistan, Libya and Iraq and botched the Iranian hostage incident.
Unlike America, Israel has won every war, except against the Romans. And that was a pivotal moment in Jewish memory. The State of Israel, reborn on her legal, historical and Biblical lands, will never forget what happens when Jews lose a war. Since 1948, Israel has been attacked by Muslims: 1967, 1973, the Intifadas of 1978-80 and 2000-2005 and, of course, the barbaric massacre of October 7, 2023. Israel will not bend the knee to Muslims or America. Because Israelis know that a loss for Israel is the end of Israel.
Dear America, this is Islam
“Deception… is permissible in Islam in the state of war”
“[Hadith]: 1352. Abu Hurairah and Jabir (May Allah be pleased with them) reported: The Prophet (PBUH) said, “War is deception.” [Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
“Commentary: “Khad`ah” means deception, i.e., employing a strategy which causes misunderstanding to the enemy, and one’s real intent does not become evident to them. This is permissible in Islam in the state of war.
“The Ahadith mentioned in this chapter make the importance of Jihad and the reason for so much stress on it abundantly clear. These also show how great a crime it is to ignore it. It is very unfortunate indeed
Present-day Muslims are guilty of renouncing Jihad in every part of the world. May Allah help us to overcome this negligence.
Israel is surrounded by an estimated 315 million Muslims (2009), about 20% of the world’s Muslim population, in 20 Muslim countries. When she fights a war, it’s with her neighbours, not countries thousands of miles away.
When it comes to war, America you have failed at winning since WWII. You lose a war – well, it’s not as if the country you attacked was on your border. You did, however, sacrifice your young men and women for nothing. You not only sent them to their death, you brought back countless numbers of injured soldiers whom, you have abandoned
Let’s talk about Saigon. I am old enough to remember this defeat.
America entered the war in Vietnam for fear of communism taking hold and toppling democracies throughout the whole of Southeast Asia. Keep in mind that war was never declared by Congress, yet 58,148 men were killed in Vietnam, 75,000 severely disabled, 23,214 were 100% disabled, 5,283 lost limbs and 1,081 sustained multiple amputations. And as many as 2 million civilians on both sides and some 1.1 million North Vietnamese and Viet Cong fighters died.

And then there was the hostage situation in Iran under Jimmy Carter which began on November 4, 1979. On April 24, 1980, Carter ordered a disastrous rescue mission in which eight U.S. military personnel were killed and no hostages rescued. The hostages were finally released after 444 days and the United States returned almost $8 billion in frozen Iranian assets.
How about Afghanistan. America remained in Afghanistan for 20 years. They had entered to destroy the Taliban in 2001 following the Muslim attack on America. Twenty years later, America left Afghanistan with her tail between her legs and the Taliban returned. More than 4,000 Americans were killed in Afghanistan. Gen. Mark A. Milley, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff is one of several U.S. officials who predicted a rosy future for Afghanistan: “Right now, I would say that the conditions are set for winning this war,” he proclaimed in 2013. He was wrong. According to Douglas Lute, former deputy national security advisor for Iraq and Afghanistan, “We were devoid of a fundamental understanding of Afghanistan — we didn’t know what we were doing.” America flees another failed war-so what to America. But as of March 2023, more than 70,000 Afghan and Pakistani civilians are estimated to have died as a direct result of the war. The United States military in 2017 relaxed its rules of engagement for airstrikes in Afghanistan, which resulted in a massive increase in civilian casualties.
To add insult to injury Biden left the Military service dogs behind.
In the Muslim world, compromise is a sign of weakness, encouraging others to strike you even harder. You cannot give in. Can you imagine the Muslim response to the gigantic failure of America in Afghanistan? America is living it.
What can one say about the failure of the Americans at war; on all levels?
And Iraq. You know, the country with weapons of mass destruction.
Just another American F*** Up.
Colin Powell told us about the weapons. In 2003 Powell repeatedly used one phrase during his hour-long speech: “weapons of mass destruction.” He said those words a total of 17 times. Except there were No weapons of mass destruction.
The conflict dragged on for almost nine years and claimed nearly 4,500 American lives. More than 185,000 Iraqi civilians were killed, according to Brown University’s Watson Institute for International and Public Affairs. Some 2 million Iraqis had been displaced from their homes by the time U.S. forces pulled out in 2011.
Wow. Those American experts are something else.
Let’s not forget Libya. In 2016 Obama was asked about his “worst mistake.” His answer: “Probably failing to plan for the day after, what I think was the right thing to do, in intervening in Libya.” In 2014, Obama said: “[W]e [and] our European partners underestimated the need to come in full force (Emphasis mine) if you’re going to do this. In recent interviews with The Atlantic’s Jeffrey Goldberg on the “Obama Doctrine,” the president bluntly said the mission in Libya “didn’t work.” Behind closed doors, according to Goldberg, he calls the situation there a “shit show.” A “shit show”? September 11, 2012, US Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other US nationals are killed in the attack. More than 30 Americans were evacuated.
Just another American F*** Up.
September 13, 2012 – At a campaign stop in Golden, Colorado, Obama says, “I want people around the world to hear me: To all those who would do us harm, no act of terror will go unpunished.” Hmm Four Americans killed and this was the President’s response. What if 1200 Americans had been killed?
But somehow America knows how to fight the Muslims attacking Israel since 1948. Israel is in the middle of the Middle East – Israelis cannot “flee” a failed war. A failed war is the extinction of Israel. Makes one wonder how many countries would applaud that.
This is Israel – and no one, especially America, will tell us what to do
A wee note: When I was a young girl, I said “shut-up.” I remember we were in the kitchen. I don’t think I said it to anyone, certainly not my Mom. Boy, did I get it! I can still feel the verbal burn! From that time forward I have never said “Shut up.” I use far more colourful language. But, I hope my Mom, may she continue rest in peace at the right side of God, is looking at me and saying, I am proud of you!
From the Ethics of the Fathers: “Rabbi Tarfon used to say, it is not incumbent upon you to complete the task, but you are not exempt from undertaking it.”
