- Israel Helps the West Meet Its Security Needs – David Gerstman
When the U.S., Canada, and the EU wanted someone to rescue members of the Syrian White Helmets from southwestern Syria last week, who did they call? Israel. Israel briefed world leaders on the half-ton of files it stole this year from a secret Iranian archive of its nuclear weapons program. It was reported last month that an Iranian-backed terror plot in Paris had been broken up thanks to crucial intelligence provided by Israel’s Mossad.
In all of these recent examples, Israel has demonstrated its indispensability to the security of the West. Israel’s military and intelligence capabilities that help its Western allies fight threats to their citizens make Israel an essential ally. (Algemeiner)
