(AmericanProsperity.com) – A story coming from the Jerusalem Post quotes a United States general as saying American service people are “prepared” to sacrifice their lives on behalf of Israel. The statements were made by Lt. Gen. Richard Clark, who was speaking about the “partnership” the U.S. has with Israel.
Clark said “at the end of the day” the paramount goal is to protect Israel. He also indicated that in terms of how U.S. personnel may be deployed, “the last vote” would be for Zvika Haimovitch to determine. Haimovitch is the former Israeli Air Defense Forces Commander and is currently involved with the Hamas war.
Clark referenced the signed agreement between the United States and Israel that dictates the U.S. must come to the aid of Israel in a time of war. Haimovitch commented that “once the order comes” he expects American troops to be deployed and fight on behalf of Israel. Clark bolstered Haimovitch’s remarks by saying once that order comes; American forces will engage in kinetic war fighting. He said that’s what soldiers train for and will be prepared to endure and accept casualties.
American politicians like Republican presidential hopeful Nikki Haley have echoed similar sentiments. Haley even went so far as to say that an attack on Israel is the same as an attack on the United States itself. Haley’s intense Israel support has political commenters like Candace Owens opining that she’d perhaps be better off running for president of Israel.
The conflict between Israel and Hamas in Gaza has become a global political situation. Multiple nations have seen rallies in the streets supporting both sides. Many videos posted to social media show people posting photos of Jewish hostages on telephone poles and other people coming to tear them down. These incidents have led to street squabbles between the sides. An elderly Israel-supporting Jewish man was recently killed in Los Angeles, California after he was hit in the head by a megaphone swung by Palestine supporter.
