Can the Left Claim Innocence?

If we had a truly nationalist government, it long ago would have positively responded to the requests to place the Oslo Accord criminals on trial.

We would no longer hear the insolent voices of the Left, calling for leaving Judea, Samaria and Gaza, and the dismantling of the settlements. Instead of dancing on the blood of our fellow Jews, and using every possible media opportunity to spread their incitement against the national camp, against the Likud, and against the settlers, the Left would have lowered its eyes in shame, and would have asked forgiveness from the people of Israel.

Shimon Peres, Yossi Beilin, Yossi Sarid, Ron Pundak and the other Oslo criminals would be long behind bars for being guilty of collaboration with the enemy, for the giving of arms and ammunition, and for turning cities in our homeland into cities of refuge for monstrous murderers. No politician would any longer suggest capitulating to the arch-murderer Yasser Arafat, a worthy successor to Hitler.

Such a public trial would make it clear, once and for all, that the architects of Oslo are the ones who are truly responsible for the terrorist attacks in recent years. Although the Arabs are directly guilty for the murders of Jews, the Oslo criminals are responsible for the success of the Arabs in carrying out their fiendish designs. It was the Oslo criminals who created the murderous monster called the "Palestinian Authority", which fully cooperates with the Hamas, the Islamic Jihad and the Hizbullah. The Oslo criminals brought the arch-murderer Arafat and his band of murderers to Israel. The Oslo criminals gave the murderers weapons, ammunition and cities of refuge. The Oslo criminals tied the IDF's hands.

The Oslo criminals, including Ehud Barak and the women of "Four Mothers", fled from Lebanon with their tail between their legs. They thereby brought Lebanon and the Hizbullah within range of Israel. The Oslo criminals are responsible for the murder of the more than 1,000 victims of Oslo-era terrorism.

The national camp warned and demonstrated against these accursed accords. And yes, the Oslo criminals are responsible for the killing of thirteen soldiers during the past several days. They are the ones who led to the IDF no longer being in Gaza. Because of them, the city has turned into a murderous hell, controlled by cannibalistic monsters, who create weapons and ammunition within Gaza for use against Jews everywhere.

Yet, despite it all, not only did the Likud governments not put the Oslo criminals on trial, they continued the policy of Oslo - a policy of submission to terror, tying the hands of the IDF, in opposition to the will of the majority of the people. Binyamin Netanyahu was elected as the opposite of Shimon Peres - but instead of eliminating the PLO, he fled from Hebron, signed the Wye Accords and shook Arafat's hand.

Ariel Sharon went even further. He was elected as the opposite of the plan of Amram Mitzna for unilateral withdrawal from Gaza - but instead of eliminating the Hamas and the Jihad, Sharon wants to reward the Arab murderers by adopting the Mitzna program, a program quite similar to that of the Hamas, with a call to uproot settlements, expel Jews and make those regions of Israel Judenrein.

The plan of defeat, flight and surrender, shared by Ariel Sharon and Peace Now, does not represent the thoughts of the majority of the people of Israel. Ever since the killing of the thirteen soldiers, the Women in Green office has received nonstop telephone calls from citizens not previously known to us, who want to establish a tremendous protest against the policy forced upon the IDF that takes pity on the enemy, but sacrifices the lives of our soldiers. They want to take to the streets and scream that a truly moral country cares, first of all, for its citizens and not for the enemy. Accordingly, instead of sending our soldiers on foot into a deathtrap, within a hostile and dense population, the IDF should have bombed the enemy's territory from the air, even if this entailed the killing of many Arab civilians, the majority of whom support Arafat and his continued call for terror and the murder of Jews.

The majority is fed up with the Oslo policy of tying the hands of the IDF out of the fear of harming a hostile Arab population. The majority is fed up with the daily humiliation. My goodness, a Jewish mother and her four daughters were murdered at close range by the Arab enemy. Not a single voice in the Arab world condemned the massacre. This terrorist attack should have been followed by an IDF response so harsh that the Arabs would beg for their lives. Yes, for the massacre of the Hatuel family we should have razed the entire Arab village from which the Nazi murderers came. This is the only language that they understand. But Israel did not respond, for fear of "harming the Arab populace." Once again, Jewish blood is free for the taking. Oh, what shame!

The same holds true for the Arab gunfire at the participants in the memorial ceremony for the Hatuel family. Only two Arab terrorists fired at hundreds of Jews - men, women, and children - who were forced to hit the ground to protect themselves. Next to them were dozens of IDF soldiers with tanks, APCs and the most sophisticated weaponry in the world. The IDF could have stopped the terrorist fire in half a second. It should have shelled the area from where the terrorists were shooting. But the IDF did not fire, because it might have harmed the hostile Arab population. The army thereby endangered the lives of Jews, and brought shame upon itself and upon the entire Jewish people. Once again Jewish blood is free for the taking. Oh, the shame of it!

The people of Israel are fed up with the policy of being merciful to the cruel. The people are fed up with the incitement and lies of the Left in the media. The people are fed up with the politicians who act in accordance with the Oslo policy of surrender, defeat and flight. The people are strong, and wait for a proud and strong Jewish leadership; a leader who will declare that all of the Promised Land belongs to the people of Israel, according to the Torah of Israel. The answer to Arab terror is not the deportation of Jews, but the accelerated construction of Jewish settlements in Judea, Samaria and Gaza. True moral behavior is not the offering of the other cheek, but attacking and defeating the Arab enemy, who murders Jews in cold blood and plays soccer, barbarically, with the heads of IDF soldiers.

The Left is panicking, because it understands that the results of the Likud poll also represent the will of the majority. In order to circumvent this will, the Left today is dancing on the blood of our soldiers, and spreading lies and incitement. It falsely equates Gaza and Lebanon. It recreates the defeatist "Four Mothers", which receives media coverage all out of proportion to what is newsworthy, in order to deceive the public and let it think that there is a majority among the people in favor of rout and retreat.

But all this will be of no avail to the Left. The people are wise. The people know that whoever flees from Judea, Samaria and Gaza will eventually seek to flee from Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. The people do not believe the incitement of Shimon Peres and his band against the settlers of Judea, Samaria and Gaza. The people do not forget that today's inciters are responsible for the curse of Oslo. We must demand, now more than ever: "Put the Oslo criminals on trial!"
