Bibi Melts Like Margarine on a Hot Day

A neighbor of ours when we lived in Bayit Vegan used to describe weak parents as:

"He's margarine and she's butter."

I keep thinking of that runny, awful and unhealthy margarine, because Bibi again melted at Arab threats. I wouldn't insult "butter" by comparing our weak Prime Minister to it.  


There's a well-known saying in American politics:

"If you can't take the heat, get out of the kitchen."

It's clear that Binyamin "Bibi" Netanyahu is just too weak. He can't take the heat. And the most depressing thing is that in all honesty, there isn't anyone in Israeli politics who seems any better. Nobody is willing to not only "tell the world off" for a "sound-bite," but to stick to a policy that's good for us when everyone is cursing, threatening and excusing Arab terrorism.

  • A good, effective Israeli leader wouldn't rely on the "friendship" of any foreign power. 
  • A good, effective Israeli leader would only consider what's best for the State of Israel. 
  • A good, effective Israeli leader would not buckle/melt under Arab terrorist threats.

This is all so déjà vu. Over twenty-five years ago, on the eve of the Madrid "Peace" Conference, one of the buses traveling to the Tel Aviv demonstration to try to strengthen then Prime Minister Yitzchak Shamir was shot at by Arab terrorists. Two people on the bus were murdered and a few others badly injured. Mourning my good friend, Rachella Druk, HaYa"D, I expected Shamir to stay home and say:

"I'm not going. There's nobody to speak to אין עם מי לדבר Ain im mi lidaber. The Arabs are murderers! They show no readiness to make peace."

But Shamir melted. He ignored the fact that a good Jewish bus driver and an innocent mother of seven had just been murdered by Arab terrorists.

This past Friday night, on the Eve of the Sabbath a Jewish home was invaded by an Arab terrorist who murdered three members of a family, a father and two adult children. This was just a week after Arab terrorists on the Temple Mount had murdered two Israeli policemen.

And now, the new metal detectors and security cameras at the Muslim entrances to the Temple Mount are bing removed. Prime Minister Binyamin Bibi Netanyahu can't be relied on. We're being ruled by mushy melting margarine.
