Editorial | Now is the time for all Americans to defend democracy in Israel, Ukraine and America

The ongoing wars in Israel and Ukraine are not only about the preservation of two great nations, but also the fate of democracy itself — and the basic, eternal battle between might and right.

Israel and Ukraine are fighting for survival against forces seeking their conquest and destruction. Russia and Hamas may stand for very different principles, but their evil intentions certainly overlap.
