The foreign policy of Ulysses S. Grant was “remarkable” for its concern about human rights issues, according to the author of a new book on the 18th president of the United States. “America, prior to the Civil War, had been very reluctant to call out other countries on issues of human rights,” said Jonathan Sarna, the author ofWhen General Grant Expelled the Jews, during a discussion of the book presented by the National Archives and the Jewish Historical Society of Greater Washington in celebration of Jewish American Heritage Month in August this year.

Almost a century and a half later, Americans are, as Sarna observed, still debating whether their country has a responsibility to promote human rights the world over. And just as in the presidency of Ulysses S. Grant, the leading advocates of an aggressive humanitarianism today are to be found in the organized Jewish community. The major difference, however, is that instead of helping their Jewish brethren as Peixotto did, today’s so-called humanitarians are devoted to “helping” their Muslim cousins. As William Kristol, chairman of the Emergency Committee for Israel, explained in a March 2011 Weekly Standard op-ed piece:“The United States, knowing no distinction of her own citizens on account of religion or nativety, naturally believe in a civilization the world over which will secure the same universal liberal views.”
And as Kristol and his fellow Israel partisans continue to pressure President Obama to adopt their “Options for the United States and Like-Minded Nations to Further Assist the Anti-Regime Syrian Opposition,” Syria is well on its way to becoming America’s sixth war of Muslim liberation.Our “invasions” have in fact been liberations. We have shed blood and expended treasure in Kuwait in 1991, in the Balkans later in the 1990s, and in Afghanistan and Iraq—in our own national interest, of course, but also to protect Muslim peoples and help them free themselves. Libya will be America’s fifth war of Muslim liberation.
