Letter: Stand up for Israel, against Iran


Antisemitism infects many college students today. They naively side with Hamas terrorists at anti-Israel protests. Some deny Hamas horrifically slaughtered 1,200 Jews and 31 Americans. Others believe Israel deserved the carnage. Probably the same ones that shout, “Death to Israel.”

Is this the left’s definition of diversity, equity and inclusion? But President Joe Biden ignores antisemites as extremists and scolds America for Islamophobia instead. He reserves “extremists” for MAGA Republicans, huh?

Iran is able to fund these terrorists because Biden lifted Trump’s sanctions. They sell a lot of oil now. They are not frightened because Joe spoke quietly into a camera, “don’t.” Their proxies continue launching missiles and drones at U.S. bases.

When Trump was president, he killed Iran’s top terrorist, Gen. Soleimani, after they killed a single American. Terrorism stopped because peace through strength works. Unfortunately, Biden’s weakness and open border invites terrorism here. We are all free Americans, but our Jewish students live in fear. Stand with them and Israel. Speak out against antisemitism. Especially when our president can’t be bothered.
