It is wrong to stand by and do nothing.
In fact, it’s evil.
One of my favorite quotesÂ is this one:Â
â€œAll that is required for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing.â€
â€“ Edmund Burke
And this one:
â€œThe world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing.â€
â€” Albert Einstein
America and the rest of the worldÂ refused toÂ give REAL help to Israel when she was threatened with destruction. Because of that, we got (among other things) Palestinian terrorism.
Because the world refused to do anything REAL about Palestinian terrorism (and still doesn’t), we haveÂ worldwide terrorism and Al-Qaeda.
Because the world refused to do anything REAL about Iran, the Iranians will have nuclear weapons and will threatenÂ Israel with them.
Israel will survive the doomÂ that IÂ ‘prophesied’ yesterday. She has before, and she will in the future. The problem is thatÂ when the world does not stand beside Israel and do somethingÂ REAL -Â well, it is the world that will suffer.
It will take a miracle for Israel to survive this latest threat. But, I believe that the Maker of Miracles has a plan for this Little country, and He’s never failed to give us one.
It’s a ray of light to cling to.
And, that’s something else to think about. A light shines brightest when everything is dark. A miracle is appreciated most when that’s all that stands between you and the abyss.
Israel will get her miracle, but that doesn’t absolve the restÂ of the world fromÂ the need to get REAL.Â
