"To fight for Israel on the international stage is also to fight for the values of democracy, freedom of speech and expression, and civilized social values everywhere. Unfortunately, the morality and values of the West have been transformed and undermined over the past thirty years almost beyond recognition. Judeo-Christian principles of honesty, honor, loyalty, family values, patriotism, religious faith and respect for the state have all been eroded; whereas negative values, such as the acceptance of betrayal, duplicity and deceit, have flourished. The Western media is chiefly culpable in advancing this deleterious values transformation. And this transformation is the basis for the growth of anti-Jewish and anti-Zionist perspectives, and anti-Israel narratives." - Col. Richard Kemp
What follows is a powerful and inspiring address (‘The Amoral Revolution in Western Values, and its Impact on Israel’) delivered by Col. Richard Kemp, former Commander of the British Forces in Afghanistan, at the Begin-Sadat Center for Strategic Studies on May 19, 2015.
