I Didn't Want to Be Right: "The Jerusalem Conspiracy"

No, no, no, no...  I didn't want to be right on this one.  I really didn't.  And what surprises me is that I thought we would have to wait longer to see if my theory was correct or not.  I am talking about a conspiracy to get the people to agree, even to demand, the division of Jerusalem - for fear of their safety.

I had written about this on a previous blog "Duped by Fear - The Demand to Divide Jerusalem".  I had asked you to keep your eyes open and watch for more terror attacks which would scare people into compliance in agreeing to divide the city.  I added, "What great psychology to use against a population IF this is true.  I suggest we keep our eye on the ball and see what transpires.  Somehow, I can't help thinking this could be all too convenient for those who want Jerusalem divided.  Now, I'd like to see facts, one way or another, to answer this question."

To my dismay, more news headlines expose the plans to encourage the division of Jerusalem:

Mofaz: Jerusalem Becoming Center of Terror
Shin Bet Head: Israel Abandoning Jerusalem Neighborhoods

Olmert Gov't Bans Jewish Prayer From Temple Mount

And today, the winner....
'SEPARATION' HAS NOT WORKED AND DOES NOT WORK

Olmert: Undivided Jerusalem Means More Terrorism

(IsraelNN.com) Prime Minister Ehud Olmert maintained Monday that retaining Jerusalem as the undivided capital of Israel would lead to more terrorism. "Whoever thinks it is possible to live with 270,000 Arabs in Jerusalem must take into account that there will be more bulldozers, more tractors, and more cars carrying out attacks," he said.

Three eastern Jerusalem Arabs carried out terrorist attacks in the capital this year; two of them used a bulldozer and a tractor. 

It breaks one's heart. And have we learned nothing?  Have we not learned after separating from the Arabs in Gaza/Gush Katif, that  'separation'  DOESN'T solve terror and military attacks on our nation?  We left and separated from the Arabs in Gaza, and they have only intensified their rocket attacks against our nation.  We separated and left South Lebanon, and the Arab enemy has only built up its forces stronger, and has had them grow even bolder, having them intensify their attacks even deeper and more deadly into Israel. I think it has been proven that 'SEPARATION' has not worked and DOES NOT WORK.   The only thing that works, is ENDING the war by utterly crushing the enemy forces, bringing them to their knees, and making THEM beg for an end to the conflict. We must follow the same policy of the Allied Forces in WWII when they crushed the Nazis. 
Jerusalem was divided before 1967, and we did not have peace...

Appeasing, disengaging, and 'separation' do not work.   It's been proven.  Ask the residents of Sderot who are being rocketed by the Arabs in Gaza almost everyday.  The same will happen if we divide Jerusalem.  It was divided before 1967, and we did not have peace, we were constantly under fire from Arabs in the eastern part of the city. Re-dividing Jerusalem will be even more dangerous today than it was in 1967. Yet, that is what we are witnessing now, the purposeful abandonment of our Holy City.

I didn't want to be right about The Jerusalem Conspiracy, but it seems I was.
