When we look around the world, we see a world on fire and tensions at an all time high. Thousands of innocent civilians murdered in Israel on Oct. 7th by the savage Hamas terrorists.
Hundreds of thousands of pro-Hamas protests in major cities such as London, Paris, Sydney. Thousands of Americans and foreign nationals inciting violence against Jews with a Cornell student calling on his fellow students to “slit the throats of Jews” on campus. This is all happening in 2023.
In London, Jews are being systematically targeted by the radical Muslim population.
In Paris, Jewish homes and businesses have been marked with the Jew Star’s of David.
In Sydney, protesters were shouting “Gas the Jews”.
In Russia’s southern Dagestan region, hundreds of people stormed an airport and started hunting for Jews after they learned a plane was arriving from Tel Aviv.
And here on the homefront in America, thousands of Americans and foreign nationals on college campuses have been ripping down American flags, inciting violence against Jews and calling for the destruction of America.
So yes, the world is on fire right now and that is because America has a senile and weak Commander-in-Chief at the helm right now who talks out of both sides of his mouth when it comes to foreign policy.
He supports Israel but puts pressure on them to agree to a ceasefire deal.
He provides military aid to Israel while unfreezing billions of dollars that will benefit Israel’s chief adversary, the Islamic Republic of Iran.
He condemns Hamas but hasn’t placed the Islamic Republic of Iran-backed Houthis back on the State Department’s Foreign Terrorist Organization list where they rightly belong.
The world is not only laughing at us right now but they are eating our breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week.
As Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban recently said to Tucker Carlson, “The best foreign policy of the recent several decades belonged to President Trump. Trump is the man who can save the western world.”
PM Orban and President Trump both know that peace is only achieved on the world stage by projecting strength at all times. When America and our leaders project weakness and appease the bad actors around the world, they will exploit this weakness every single time.
President Biden’s failed foreign policy agenda has driven our enemies closer to each other than ever before as this new “Axis of Evil” has formed vis a vis Russia, China and the Islamic Republic of Iran.
China has never had more diplomatic strength and influence than the last three years. The Islamic Republic of Iran has never been richer and Russia has never been stronger.
Here at home, President Biden could instruct his State Department to revoke the student visas and immediately deport any foreign national that is in America inciting violence against Americans but he hasn’t done so and in all likelihood he will not.
President Biden is a weak leader and it’s not just other world leaders who know this but it’s the American people as well.
On the other side of the coin, President Trump has made a recent campaign pledge to revoke the student visas and deport anyone who was involved in the pro-Hamas protests over the last +45 days. As history has shown us, when President Trump makes a campaign promise, he delivers on it.
In closing, we all know that a peace through strength policy serves to protect not just America but our allies around the world. Projecting weakness and appeasing the bad actors around the world instead of asserting American strength is a recipe for disaster that we are seeing play out right in front of our eyes.
