Border Lessons From Israel

Israel is thought to have the most sophisticated systems in the world for protecting their homeland and people. The Iron Dome defies the imagination with the ease and precision it can intercept thousands of incoming missiles. Their intelligence network is the gold standard; they usually know what their enemies think before the thoughts become reality. The protection they incorporate at all of their schools is without question the best in the world. Israel’s border and buffer zone seemed impenetrable – until Friday night. The Gaza attack on Israel is an intelligence and military failure of epic proportions as the actions of Gaza and Iran are compared to our 9-11 and Pearl Harbor. This is not just a day or weekend of violence. This begins an all-out war as we wait to see who is involved and where it will be fought. Israel is prepared to protect itself, and once it recovers from the shock and surprise of this attack, it will unleash fury on those responsible.

This region’s battle over land and religion goes back to Biblical times. This battle will be a clash of two cultures and powers. Israel has been on guard, protecting its existence since it was created after World War II, and they have built a sophisticated and powerful military. Hamas and Iran are a collection of tribes. They have no conscience and will commit atrocities as they scream “Death to Israel and America.”

The question on everyone’s mind is who else will get involved. Will other countries in the Middle East stay out of the conflict, or will they choose sides and further inflame the tensions in the region? Just this week, Saudi Arabia and Israel reported they were close to a historic peace agreement. The world was excited about the possibility of these two perennial enemies finally shaking hands in peace, and that may now be in jeopardy. The feckless United Nations will meet this week to discuss this weekend’s happenings. It is a dog and pony show, as the international body is powerless and no longer significant. The appointment of Ali Bahreini, Ambassador of the Islamic Republic of Iran and Permanent Representative to the United Nations, to chair the 2023 United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) Social Forum is nothing more than a slap in the face given the human rights situation of most Iranians.

What I meant by the title is how vital a defined and secure border is to a sovereign country. The reinforced border between Israel and Gaza is considered one of the most secure in the world. Yet, it was not enough to keep the terrorist gangs from breaching it in over twenty locations—the breakdown in border security hints at collusion between some Israeli military and the Hamas terrorists. To parallel this Middle East situation with our border, we have collusion between the cartels and the Democrats. Israel knows exactly who came across their border. We have no idea who comes across ours.

It will be interesting to see how our relationship with Israel draws us into the fight. Biden and Blinkin have indicated our full support-“full stop,” as our eloquent President said. The Progressive Democrats, namely Omar and Cortez, have already called for a cease fire. They may as well pledge their support for Gaza. The anti-Semitic feelings of the Radical Left came through in their comments. Again, even when one of our most important allies is attacked, we cannot unite in our support. It is a sad observation of where we are as a divided country.
