Today, Israelis are voting in vitally important Parliamentary elections.  These elections could determine whether they will retain the most effective leader the nation has ever had, Benjamin Netanyahu, or be swayed by some patently ridiculous corruption allegations from his political opponents into handing control of the government to liberals who would be the equivalent of sending a sheep to negotiate with a pack of wolves.  Let’s pray for the safety of Israel that they make the correct choice.


Incidentally, I hate to harp on a theme, but Israel is yet another subject that “Beto” O’Rourke really shouldn’t comment on at all.  Sure, he has a First Amendment right to say anything he wants, but when your words do nothing but betray your ignorance of the subject, it might be best to refrain when you’re trying to convince people to make you President. 


In his favor, he did manage to get through the first sentence without spouting any outrageous nonsense.  But then came the rest, such as calling Netanyahu a “racist” (I think he believes that word means “anyone I don’t like.”)  As someone who has visited Israel dozens of times going back over four decades (I was there about a week ago, in fact), and who is proud to call PM Netanyahu my friend, I assure you O’Rourke’s comments suggest that he knows less about Israel and Netanyahu than I know about his field of expertise: skateboarding.
