The deranged hatred of the Jews lies at the core of the Islamists' hatred of America, the "infidel" West and modernity, and is the reason why they wish to destroy Israel. Unless people in the West understand that Israel's fight is their own fight, they will be on the wrong side of the war to defend not just the West but civilization in general.
