There is a leader vacuum that is evident in every corner of America and the entire world, and you can see it manifesting itself in our news stories.
I want to start with Israel today. Yesterday we showed you some of the most gruesome pictures I have ever seen. They were shocking, the truth of what the enemies of mankind, the radical Islamists, are capable of. Now, their direct enemy, the enemy of truth, Hamas, is once again calling for the extermination of corrupt Jews. Look at this.
How do you possibly expect someone to sit down at a peace table where they are saying, “We will exterminate every single one of you” and then back it up with their Scriptures? It’s insanity.
A Hamas rocket misfired yesterday, landing in a hospital in Gaza, killing nine children. Who did Hamas say did it? They said Israel did. Israel’s cabinet is now warning that they are seeing the signs of the beginning of another Holocaust, but instead of believing that that is even possible, of course it is, listen to the words of the leaders. It’s like read Mein Kampf. How did you miss this?
It’s because you don’t want to look at that. The world chooses to believe terrorists. The world chooses to believe that they can’t possibly be that horrible. The Associated Press looked more like Gaza propaganda today. Earlier today this is what they said: “As much of world watches Gaza war in horror, members of Congress fall over each other to support Israel.” Excuse me? Did you see what we just played for you? That was Hamas.
They went on. The spin continued. They said the violence was Israel’s fault, “Senior Palestinian official offers 24 hour truce in Gaza, says he’s also speaking for Hamas.” Really? More, “A spokesman brushed aside the offer, saying until Israel hears from Hamas directly, it’s not serious.” Well, of course it’s not serious. The Associated Press views Hamas as the victim who just wants to give peace a chance, but they will dismiss the words that I just played for you, and they will conclude that it’s just these darn Israelis that just can’t, you know, can’t get along with everybody.
This Sunday, TheBlaze was one of the first to report through Sharona Schwartz, our reporter in Israel, she reported on the truth on Hamas. She showed the mega-attack that was being plotted and planned through the Gaza terror tunnels that was stopped.
And what the plan was is they were going to, Hamas was going to dress as Israeli soldiers, which, by the way, is against the Geneva Convention, and they had all of these uniforms that they had either stolen or had made. And they were going to go through the terror tunnels, and they were going to kidnap as many Jews as possible.
Leaders of the world are too afraid, too cowardice, or too bought and sold, they don’t even know who they are anymore, and they won’t stand boldly in the truth. Instead, we get John Kerry. Now, John Kerry, I don’t mean to be divisive here, you know how I feel about him, but this peace deal that he was offering to Israel was laughed off by everyone in the region, including the Palestinian Authority.
He has done something that nobody else has been able to do since the time of Abraham, and that is unite Jew and Arab and Palestinian alike, everybody together, unite them laughing at him. I don’t think that’s ever happened. Hamas was the only one who benefited from this offer, and even the Egyptians, they were mocking him openly. That’s leadership? And then we have something even worse, the people like the Democratic Senate candidate Michelle Nunn. Her father has got to be horrified by this. Her stance has just come out in a memo on Israel.
Her stance was to be determined by how much financial opportunity there is, so who’s going to give me more cash? Are the Jews going to give me more cash, the Palestinians, who? Because I’ll determine it largely on the level of support. It is disgusting. It is frustrating. It is un-American. It is un-American. I don’t know who we are anymore because we have lost our why. Why are we even a nation anymore?
The debate on illegal immigration, everybody’s rushing in to find a quick solution, let’s find a solution, got to find a solution. Could we just ask people, “Why are you here?” It’s a simple question. Ask them that simple question, “Why are you coming here?” If you do, you’ll find out because most will say Obama will take care of us. Those are quotes, “Obama will take care of us. He will grant us amnesty.”
Yesterday, illegal immigrants protested outside of the White House. If you are not afraid, if you are here illegally, and you’re protesting in front of the White House, and you notice, nobody’s face is being blurred here. Really? You’re completely unafraid of the law. There is no justice. It’s completely broken down.
A leader in Washington would tell people, “Stop coming.” We love you, we have compassion, we will find those who are really, truly needing asylum, but that’s it, stop coming here. It’s what I did on this network, but it’s what the president needs to do on every network. And because he doesn’t, there’s a vacuum, and people now are taking matters into their own hands.
I’m warning you, when justice fails, vengeance grows if we don’t grow mercy, and this is the end. We now have armed militias moving across Texas. This is different than the Minutemen. The Minutemen were unarmed and simply reporting illegal crossings. Now, I’m sure that most people in this militia have good intentions. Well, I don’t know, I don’t know. They’re being described as antigovernment, but I’m described as antigovernment, so I don’t know.
I know that if you are carrying guns down on the border, it’s not going to end well and especially if it is driven by anger. Even if it is righteous anger, it’s a recipe for disaster.
The world needs leaders, and as our founders proved, you don’t have to be some fancy CEO at the top of an organizational chart to lead. Anybody can do it. Anyone can do it. Perhaps it’s you.
Tonight, our guest is going to try to shore that up because the next great leader might just be you.
