EMET Wants Americans to be Heard

February 5th 2015
It has become quite clear that the voice of concerned Americans is not being heard by the White House. Like millions of Americans, Endowment for Middle East Truth is concerned about the failing Iranian nuclear negotiations and the breakdown of the US-Israel relationship, including the recent inflated obsession with a matter of simple protocol of a routine invitation by House Speaker John Boehner to a foreign leader to address Congress. This had been handled no differently than the 2011 invitation from Speaker Boehner to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, but that was before the President was a “lame duck” and did not need the support of the Jewish community. It is appalling that this is occurring at the precise time that the Islamic terrorist group known as the Islamic State (ISIS) reached a despicable new low as they released a video showing the captured Jordanian pilot Lt. Muath al-Kaseasbeh being burned alive in a cage. Lt. al-Kaseasbeh’s murder is a stark reminder that the ISIS organization is the kind of evil that is not only a threat to the US, but an affront to humanity. That brutal organization is functioning now on Israel’s northern border in Syria. Yet while facing these crucial national security problems for the United States and its one democratic ally in the region, the State of Israel, the White House continues to promote an ineffective foreign policy which is weakening the image of America abroad, ignoring the concerns of its citizens, and throwing our allies under the bus. Each of us will have to ask ourselves one day: did we stand aside while radical Islamists like ISIS attacked our way of life and our ally, Israel, or did we do something to help stop them? After seeing ISIS murder thousands of people, including the beheading of three Americans, you may wonder what you, as a citizen, can do. We cannot afford to sit back and wait for the White House to change its policy. There will be no change unless you make your voice heard.
