...The world must know that casting aspersions on the prime minister and defense minister's intentions to make peace will not hurt the strong spirit of the people of Israel. Rather than trying to attack the defense minister, spokespeople in America and the rest of the world had better start looking for the black hole into which their own security disappeared.
20 March '14..
The echoes of the beginning of the universe picked up recently by the equipment of leading astrophysicists prove that Einstein was right. God doesn't roll dice, and leaders are not supposed to release doves (an ancient method of gambling.)
Unfortunately, there is a small group of people in Israel today, some of whom hold senior public positions, who know what will happen 50 or 100 years from now but haven't the slightest clue what will happen tomorrow or next week. In a weird spring ritual, they are trying tirelessly to revive the dove of peace that was slaughtered in Oslo.
Those who are declaring to Israelis and to the world that Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas is a loyal partner in peace are the ones who put Yasser Arafat on a pedestal and celebrated a brave peace. They were prepared to give up the Golan Heights, and today they explain that there is no need for Israel to control the Jordan Valley. As far as they are concerned, Jerusalem can once again be divided and a partial right of return for Palestinians implemented.
But Israeli society is lucky -- those same dreamers have been distanced from decision-making; they were woken up and paid a heavy price. You have been warned about illusions. There will never be peace with the Palestinian Arabs under Abbas' leadership if their precondition for negotiations is the release of cold-blooded killers of women and children. There can never be peace with a society whose national heroes are murderers. The welcome the killers received in Ramallah expresses the Palestinian essence, not the hugs and smiles at the White House. We can only hope that Israel will not agree to stop construction in the settlements and release more imprisoned terrorists.
Any Arab leader who wants peace must come with hands that are clean, not blood-stained. A dangerous threat is growing around Israel's borders. Branches of Islamist terror are becoming entrenched next to Israel's cities and villages. The serious incident on the northern Golan Heights is a hint of what is to come. There is no central government in Lebanon, so Hezbollah allows itself to do what it wants. Syria is falling apart and bleeding and Assad is trying to shift attention by inciting against the Zionist enemy, Egypt is investing resources in fighting al-Qaida in Sinai and it will take years before its Muslim Brotherhood and its allies are checked. Thousands of rockets bought by the Gazans' poverty and want are stored in the Gaza Strip.
The changes taking place on the country's borders demand that Israel keep every strategic asset it has. Any concession of even an inch of the land of Israel is a security risk these days, beyond the Jews' right to the land. The Israeli leadership must stand firm in face of the U.S. and European nations. U.S. President Barack Obama must realize that Israel is not a weak link that he can use to score international public relations points.
The world must know that casting aspersions on the prime minister and defense minister's intentions to make peace will not hurt the strong spirit of the people of Israel. Rather than trying to attack the defense minister, spokespeople in America and the rest of the world had better start looking for the black hole into which their own security disappeared.
