Outrage, many and varied emotional and often visceral reactions, deep concern, speculation and more seem the tonality these days concerning the recent Syrian humanitarian crisis. Surely warranted and not a bit misplaced are any of these emotions considering the number of refugees, injured and dead; However is it too little, too late and more pointed is the question of who and when is the REAL responsibility to be directed toward?
I have been to the Middle East many times – often dismayed by the proximity of Syria and other nations to my beloved Israel. There it is on a hilltop that one views Syria overlooking the only democracy in that region – does that mean we Jewish Zionist are thrilled with the Assad regime? Of course the answer is no. Still a logical mind must conclude that the rebels are no friend of the United States nor Israel.
Seems recent chemical attacks on Syrian civilians have finally created the scenario where “crossing the red line” drawn by President Obama and the European Union demands action. Why that needed to get involved one must ask? Is this an excuse to proceed militarily against Assad the dictator or a shame game of we of good conscious must react against a tyrant? Either way innocence citizens are being killed – for some time now the slaughter and displacement has been known to the world as Syria’s civil war rages on.
The title of this blog essay says much – is the present rants by press and government officials to do something about Syria REAL or reactionary? After all Israel is falsely and routinely criticized for atrocities proven non existent. In fact, it is Israel who helped Syrian refugees over flowing in neighboring Turkey or Jordan and those attacked by chemical weapons – yes we Jews rushing in to care for those possibly our mortal enemies.
So much of my writing has addressed the lie tellers, the misanthropes and those misrepresenting REAL truth – this is equally important for individuals as for nations. For is not the faux or exaggerating verbiage of singular persons against another as dangerous and destructive as that we are most likely seeing on the world stage? The undeniable answer is a firm yes!
