Victor Davis Hanson on Israel and Repeating History

Victor Davis Hanson writes a hard-hitting column for National Review on the lack of willingness in the west to strongly support Israel and deal with Islamic terrorism:

"Our present generation too is on the brink of moral insanity. That has never been more evident than in the last three weeks, as the West has proven utterly unable to distinguish between an attacked democracy that seeks to strike back at terrorist combatants, and terrorist aggressors who seek to kill civilians."

Hanson describes the return of Europe to the "cowardice of the 1930s," as well as certain Americans who are unwilling to "exercise moral judgment." He warns that if the world is not willing to deal with the enemy, we're looking at history repeating itself, concluding: "In short, if we wish to learn what was going on in Europe in 1938, just look around."
