Recently I received an email with a link to this interesting article about the Italian Senate convening in support of Israel.
Marcello Pera, former president of the Italian Senate, expressed the Italian sentiment well when he stated that “our Western democracies will not prevail unless we re-embrace our Judeo-Christian heritage. Our support for Israel should not be based on guilt, but rather on pride in our common roots and values. Defending Israel means defending our values and our way of life.”
I was born after World War II, and in studying history, I always wondered how the Nazis were able to pull off the massacre of over six million Jews and six million non-Jews (according to historical archives) in full sight of the whole world? This information was public and has become even more public through historical research of all kinds.
Many have spoken out about these issues. Here is one of the most vocal and incisive, Bret Stephens of the Wall Street Journal speaking at CIJR in Montreal.
