Did you ever ponder about the question: who is promoting America’s wars?
Who is promoting concepts of American Leadership, military necessity, exceptionalism, , – leadership with muscle?
Who is training American police in “educational” programmes of Law Enforcement
Who is offering courses in combating terrorism with their “superb anti-terror experts”
Anti-Israel students at Rutgers University were raising money to sponsor another Gaza flotilla. ADL came to the aid of Jewish student groups trying to prevent this. Using our legal expertise, we showed Rutgers that the students’ support for the flotilla effort could violate U.S. law.
ADL and Law Enforcement: Fighting Terror
“For more than three decades, the
Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs has
been a strong supporter and defender of America’s military might – and of America’s
long-standing friendship with Israel. I thank you all for your contribution to the debate
over our nation’s foreign policy.”
~ The Honorable Robert M. Gates, Secretary of Defense
“[JINSA] created a crucial forum that exists nowhere else that keeps our nation and
its leaders focused on the threats, challenges and opportunities that we face from a
combination of sworn enemies, emerging rivals and evolving alliances.”
~ Senator Joseph Lieberman (I-CT)

From an ideological perspective:
THE LAWS OF KINGS AND THEIR WARS
6) The obligation to destroy the seven nations living in the Land of Canaan;
7) The prohibition against allowing any one of them to remain alive;
8) The obligation to destroy the descendents of Amalek;
9) The obligation to remember what Amalek did;
A king should not wage other wars before a milchemet mitzvah. What is considered as milchemet mitzvah? The war against the seven nations who occupied Eretz Yisrael, the war against Amalek, and a war fought to assist Israel from an enemy which attacks them.
Afterwards, he may wage a milchemet hareshut, (war of aggression) i.e. a war fought with other nations in order to expand the borders of Israel or magnify its greatness and reputation.
“wars of conquest are permissible. As stated, these are wars against enemies that lie very far from Israel’s borders, and as such, are obviously not defensive wars but rather wars motivated by pure aggression.”
“….the justification for war is the Jewish people’s exercising their divine right to the land of Canaan, “And you shall take possession of the land and settle in it for I have assigned the land to you to possess.”
Rabbi Yehudah identifies wars of conquest and aggression as commanded(mitzvah) and the war against the seven nations as obligatory (chovah).
Knowing all this, Are We Justified to be Worried?
Knowing all this, would any sane or moral friend of Palestine want to see the Palestinians forced to live with such heartless war-machines warmongers?
