For those who are home, and for those who are on the way. For those who support the historic and just return of the land of Israel to its people, forever loyal to their inheritance, and its restoration.
This week, the EU's High Representative for the Common Foreign and Security Policy and former Secretary General of NATO, Javier Solana, proposed that the UN declare the establishment of a Palestinian state and accept it immediately into the United Nations as a way to end the Mid-East conflict.
Solana is just the first breach in the wall. As soon as Netanyahu accepted a two state solution in principle, nobody takes his conditions for such a state seriously. Now the world has begun to decide for us; who should be our Foreign Minister, who should be our ambassador to Egypt and soon, the world will simply create facts on the ground: a Palestinian state in Yesha that will automatically be recognized by the UN.
No need to worry, though. The "Palestinians" will reject Solana's proposal, even if it will be devoid of any restrictions and will include all of Jerusalem. A "Palestinian" state will not be established because the most ideal situation for the terror gangs of Hamas and the PLO (the Palestinian Authority, in the Orwellian language that has been forced upon Israelis) is the perpetuation of the existing reality.
Seven years ago, I penned an article called Beware: A Palestinian State in which I wrote as follows: "Nothing scares Arafat more than the establishment of a Palestinian state. It scares him so much that when he was offered everything - including Jerusalem, including the Temple Mount and including Israeli sovereign territory in the Negev - he started a war. It sounds strange and illogical. He has been fighting all his life for these territories! But a rational analysis of his behavior leads inevitably to this conclusion. Just as the Oslo Accords are not a peace agreement at all, so the "Palestinian struggle" is not a struggle for liberation at all." Click here for full article.
Cossacks do not run countries. Robbers cannot produce anything themselves. They need a source that will continue to produce so that they can continue to rob. When Ehud Barak offered Arafat everything, he quickly started a war. The last thing he wanted was a state.
The "Palestinians" do not want a state. But right now, conditions are being created in which the state they do not want will be established against their will by the UN - and or by Israel.
I visited Hevron in November 2000 after the outbreak of the Rosh Hashanah War to see what could be done to assist in the face of the growing daily attacks on the community. After returning to work for the community in the summer of 2001, a bond and a love was forged that grows to this day. My wife Melody and I merited to be married at Ma'arat HaMachpela and now host visitors from throughout the world every Shabbat as well as during the week. Our goal, "Time to come Home!"
