"You do not realize that it is better for you that one man die for the people than that the whole nation perish."It is nothing new for people to think that a little evil can make the world a better place to live. Back during the cold-war many liberals felt we could make a deal with Russia and accept their form of government as being just as legitimate as ours. They called their policy "accommodation" and it sacrificed the rights and freedoms of those behind the iron curtain for our own peace and prosperity. Reagan said of this in 1964,
"We cannot buy our security, our freedom from the threat of the bomb by committing an immorality so great as saying to a billion human beings now enslaved behind the Iron Curtain, "Give up your dreams of freedom because to save our own skins, we're willing to make a deal with your slave masters."Today, some feel that their peace and prosperity is threatened by those in the Middle East. Arabs in those countries tell us to not stand with Israel and to leave their side. They say to the world "Let Israel die and we will go away and leave everyone in peace". Sadly, many have believed their message of "Peace thru Annihilation" and want the US to look the other way for in their view:
"Better for one COUNTRY to be annihilated than for the whole WORLD to go into chaos and war."
Let me leave you with the time honored words of Alexander Hamilton,
"A nation which can prefer disgrace to danger is prepared for a master, and deserves one."
