Sept. 11, 2001, was the most horrific day in our nation’s history, creating images that will forever remain in our consciousness. President George W. Bush quickly responded by announcing that our nation’s military would decimate al Qaeda and make sure such an attack would never happen again on our soil. Americans from all walks of life united in support of our nation and the service members who would deliver justice.
But what if instead of coming together, tens of thousands of Americans flooded the streets to protest the response for America to defend itself? What if Americans aggressively demanded an immediate cease-fire and blamed America’s foreign policy as the cause of the terrorist attack, called our service members the real terrorists and chanted for the destruction of America?
That hypothetical reaction seems patently absurd, twisted and implausible. But take a step back, and you’ll see it is exactly what is going on right now. This is the reaction we are seeing from far too many Americans in the aftermath of Hamas’ savage murder of more than 1,400 innocent Israelis, the most Jews killed in one day since the Holocaust.
