Truly, I think the leaders of Israel have lost it. First the
letting loose of terrorists to murder again. When I heard that I
could only shake my head in disbelief. The line has been
crossed, and Pandora's Box opened. Now, it's going to be open
season on Israelis, tourists, or anybody these barbaric people
can grab off the street. Their thinking is truly amazing.
Hezbollah, which is one of the world's most dangerous terrorists
groups, and whose only goal is the complete and utter
destruction of Israel are the ones that Sharon picks to work
together in that moronic trade? Crazy. They are bad people and
deserve to be caged.
The families of those who were murdered are still in mourning.
Yet Israel opens the jailhouse doors? Am I the only one who sees
the insanity in this?
What happens to the leaders of Israel once they get elected? And
I don't just mean Ariel Sharon. He possibly has been the biggest
disappointment, but pretty much the same goes for Peres, Rabin,
Netanyahu, and Barak. These have given carte blanche to the
wishes of everyone but their constituents. Who would have
believed that these men, either because of weakness or corruption,
would have sold the citizens of Israel down the Road to annihilation?
But, if that wasn't enough for the "week that was" another nail
in the coffin of the Jewish state was hammered in by Sharon and
company introducing their plans for the ethnic cleansing and
removal of the Jews from their homeland.
Ironic, isn't it? I wrote columns and columns about cutting the
cancer out of the country. Every time I wrote one of my
politically incorrect articles and dared mention the word
transfer of Arabs out of Israel, I couldn't find a publisher
that was willing to publish me. After all, such thoughts weren't
"the Jewish way" and my thoughts were put down as immoral. Yet,
when it's reversed and the plan is to "transfer" the Jews out of
their land, that's OK.
What is wrong with a world that chooses to forget that close to
a million Jews were expelled from the Arab countries? The plight
of the Arab refugees? What about the plight of the Jewish
refugees? Jewish refugees were not left to fester on the doorsteps
of the Arab world. They were brought home to Israel.
The same foolish Israeli leaders who are in power today, let
that moment of transfer pass and told the Arabs in Israel to
stay and live together in peace. Had they not made that mistake
then, both nations could have avoided the deplorable conditions
and expensive refugee problem their Arab brothers have placed
them in for over fifty years.
Does anyone in Israel, or more importantly, the world body, who
somehow feel they have the right to dictate the future of
Israel, ever looked at a map? We, in the United States, have
shopping centers bigger than this great Arab region of Gaza that
is planned as the New Arab Nation. Worse, smack dab in the
middle of the Jewish State is the land delegated for the Arabs.
Every time Prime Minister Sharon opens his mouth I cringe when
he repeats his mantra of how "inevitable" a Palestinian state
is. I know that George W. is in an election year. And, I'll
wager that Sharon has promised to be a "good boy" and follow
orders to make Bush's re-election go without a hitch. Logically,
now would be the best time to use leverage and not cave in to
the U.S. State Dept or the re-election campaign.
It just seems to me that the issues facing Israel, such as these
incredible prisoner "exchanges", removing the Jews from their
homes, and even the very idea of a transfer of the Arabs back
into their historic lands, needs to be put on a ballot for the
country to decide. The very future of the Jewish people is at stake!
If it were not for the stupidity of Arafat when he turned down
the give-away that then Prime Minister Barak offered, Israel
would have been in Arab hands now. How can one man, or one small
group have the right to make a decision which concerns us all?
Rather than face the fact that Israel is in a war, and, act
accordingly, its leaders repeat the mantra, Palestinian state,
over and over. Am I the only one who sees that the mindsets of
the two cultures are so opposed that there is no chance for the
elusive peace that everyone, except the Arabs, want? What does
it take to understand that the Islamic culture is a violent and
treacherous one? Because, let there be no doubt, as long as the
enemies of Israel are living within the land of Israel they will
continue to pick off the citizens five, or ten at a time on a
Israel has the means to win the war. Why have their leaders lost
the ability to lead? Or, behave as it seems that they have lost
the will to win. Appeasement isn't the answer. What has recently
been done by opening the jailhouse doors will, I'm afraid, come
back to haunt them.
My attitude with men and real estate has always been timing and
location. In the case of Israel, why choose this moment to
reward Hamas and Islamic Jihad by the obvious capitulation in
progress now? Oh, and let's not forget Hezbollah who through
their press conferences are now gloating. Hey, you know it has
to be bad when even Yossi Beilin, who has been almost as
destructive as Peres in his creative "peace treaties" is on
record as saying Sharon is rewarding Hamas!
These are people who have trained their babies from birth to
kill the Jewish "enemy" and to strive for death as the only
chance they'll have for "honor" and happiness.
And, if Prime Minister Sharon continues to relate to the world
how he must take steps that are painful, then maybe he might
consider resigning. That should be painful, but, only to him.
