Op-Ed: Obama Must be Told: Israel is not a Vassal State
"it is long overdue to respond to all... accusations, reproaches, suspicions, slanders and denunciations by simply folding our arms and loudly, clearly, coldly and calmly answer,'Go to Hell!' (Jabotinsky)
America harms Israel during a time of war - and the best words to tell Obama are the eloquent words of Ze’ev Jabotinsky, the Zionist leader who in 1911 wrote a piece entitled “Go to Hell!” - the perfect words for Obama to hear today.
"President Obama and Secretary of State Kerry, please note the message below:
Israel is not answerable to even her friends.
Israel will not fold - and cannot fold.
It is necessary for Israel to say no to President Obama when he endangers the Jewish State.
“Now you once again declare that you are punishing Israel. What kind of expression is this — “punishing Israel”? Are we a vassal state of yours? Are we a banana republic? Are we youths of 14 who, if they don’t behave properly, are slapped across the fingers?Let me tell you who this government is composed of. It is composed of people whose lives were spent in resistance, in fighting and in suffering. You will not frighten us with “punishments.” He who threatens us will find us deaf to his threats. We are only prepared to listen to rational arguments."
The people of Israel have lived 3,700 years without a memorandum of understanding with America — and it will continue to live for another 3,700."
