Letter: Support Israel

  • 0

Israel continues to be under attack, whether from Palestinian rockets fired from Gaza or from Israel-haters here in our hallowed halls of Congress.

The Quad Cities Night to Honor Israel Committee says "enough!" We will not remain silent. We will be speaking out and taking action to defend Israel and the Jewish people.

Will you support us?

If so, then please consider attending the 18th annual, QC Night to Honor Israel, which will be held this year on Saturday, Oct. 16, beginning at 6:30 p.m. at the host site: Bettendorf Christian Church, 3487 Towne Point Drive in Bettendorf. Doors open at 5:30 pm.

You can also view this event online, live, on Facebook at:

The QC Night to Honor Israel is a non-conversionary event where Christians and Jews come together for an evening of singing, dancing, prayer and giving.

This year’s free will offering will go directly to help new, Jewish immigrants from Ethiopia integrate into Israeli society.

Many of these new immigrants arrived just days before the 11-day war in May, where Palestinian terrorists fired over 4,000 rockets towards Israeli towns and villages. Imagine having to spend your first days in the Holy Land under attack, in danger and confined to bomb shelters.

Todah Rabah! Thank you very much!

I am truly concerned about the attacks on our first amendment right of free speech. Last week, Attorney General Merrick Garland wrote a letter that weaponizes the FBI to investigate angry parents who are confronting school boards about teaching Critical Race Theory as "domestic terrorists."

After 50 years in public service Joe Biden is demonstrating the intelligence and wisdom of one who listens to all with respect, knows that his experience at the highest levels of government is a great teacher, and acts out of love for his country and his neighbor. He is getting the job of the American people done.

I was overjoyed when I saw that large amounts of COVID funding was going to be steered toward sports: gymnasiums, weight rooms, football fields, tracks, etc. This is just what our academic community needs!

Donald Trump's rally in Des Moines last Saturday was disturbing on many levels. Most of all, that major Republicans stood on stage with a liar and perpetuated the falsehoods about the 2020 presidential election. I hear Democrats complaining, but really, where are the strong voices? I'm not hearing them, and that is frightening to me.

Hey, Democrats! You've been pressuring the wrong people, i.e., Sens. Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema. If you want to get President Joe Biden's reconciliation bill passed by the Senate, put pressure on the people who yank their chains. Call Charles Koch, who owns Koch Industries and tell him to release Joe Manchin. Tell Koch he is making Koch Industries look un-American by ordering Manchin to block the reconciliation bill.

In last Tuesday's column, Kathleen Parker laments that the feminist movement’s embrace of "girl power" has somehow caused fewer men to attend college. Boys are sitting at home, apparently, because they’ve been intimidated by too many assertive heroines in Disney movies. She discusses a series of alarming trends — some minor social critics criticized fathers! Sperm banks are all over the place! A punk band in 1991 had a song called "Girl Power"! — to finally conclude, "why would young men bother going to the trouble and expense of college?"

The Scott County Republican supervisors are trying to rewrite history. Supervisors Tony Knobbe, Ken Beck, and John Maxwell refused to proclaim September as Union Appreciation Month. Maxwell wanted to amend the proclamation to say "all labor," including non-union labor.
