Hugh Hewitt: Netanyahu’s Moment


Over the course of the past few months, Iran has escalated their military presence inside of Syria, building many many missile sites.

Israel has struck at these sites repeatedly, and then this week Iran fired twenty missiles into Israel. And Israel responded with great force and with severity that destroyed almost all of the military infrastructure of Iran inside of Syria.

If Iran continues its provocations and if Tehran’s mullahs think they can calculate Israel’s reaction to any use of weapons against the Jewish state, well those Mullahs are very mistaken.

Like most Americans, I know Israel through the prism of the leadership of  Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.  If Iran sets off a battle, there is no one else who Israelis and Americans would want at the top of the Israeli government if this turns into a real war.

Watch closely.

This is Netanyahu’s moment.

Michael Medved: Striking a Blow for Decency


Carping criticism of the Trump administration’s handling of the targeted, allied air strikes against the Syrian dictator follows a long, sad tradition in debates on US foreign policy. The Nazis were profoundly evil in World War II, while Britain was noble in opposing them, but many Americans wanted our country to take no side in the struggle.

A few years later, the Soviet Union was indeed an “Evil Empire”, while NATO nations represented the best of Civilization, but leftist skeptics claimed a “moral equivalence” between the two sides in the Cold War.

Today, the three allies who collaborated on the Syria strike – America, Britain and France – are among the most decent nations on earth, while Syria, Iran and Russia are among the most vile regimes. Americans should feel proud that our military has, once again, served honorably on the side of decency.
