Prager Middle East YouTube Goes Viral

Posted by Steve Markowitz on August 7, 2014

Conservative radio talk show commentator, Dennis Prager, posted a YouTube video titled “The Middle East Problem” that has received significant press.  It proffers a very pro- Israeli leaning.  Those that support Israel against Hamas will affirmatively shake their heads after viewing the video.  Those who lean towards the Palestinian position will scoff at it.

Irrespective of one’s position on the current Israeli–Hamas conflict, it is hard to disagree with Prager’s conclusion when he rhetorically asks:  “If tomorrow, Israel laid down its arms and announced, ‘We will fight no more,’ what would happen?  And if the Arab countries around Israel laid down their arms and announced, ‘We will fight no more,’ what would happen?  In the first case, there would be an immediate destruction of the state of Israel and mass murder of its Jewish population.  In the second case, there would be peace the next day.”

    Steve, Prager is exactly right. This is a religious war pitting Islamic fanatics (120,000,000 strong) against the rest of the world and Israel is it ground zero. We need to “win the peace” in which we have the opposition sign terms of surrender losing their ability to make war. And the only way to do that is through violence.
