The Moral Case for Supporting Israel by Dr. Yaron Brook, executive director of the Ayn Rand Institute.  (Tuesday, February 22, 2005 University of Chicago, Social Sciences 122 8:30 PM)

Since its founding in 1948 Israel has been under siege, courageously fending off hostile neighbors while defending itself against Arab terrorists. In a Mideast dominated by Arab monarchies, theocracies and dictatorships, Israel is a free country standing as the lone bastion of Western civilization in that region. Yet for decades Israel has faced growing international pressure–often led by the United States–to compromise with its enemies, and act against its self- interest. In this talk, Dr. Brook argues that the United States should unequivocally support Israel’s effort at self-defense; that allowing Israel to rid itself of terrorist and foreign military threats is in America’s best interests. Israel is our only true ally in the Mideast, and supporting it is the only moral thing for the United States to do.
