I'm Not Going To Be At That Demonstration

I've been asked by a number of people if I'll be at that demonstration against United States
Our security is up to us!
interference in Israeli affairs. No, I won't be there.
It's not that I'm in favor of America butting in, giving us orders. G-d forbid. Simply, I don't put the blame on America.

Israel just has to say:


"Mind your own business!" "

We're an independent country and don't need your string-tied help!"

Tell the American envoys, ministers, ambassadors etc that we don't have time to talk.

I'm willing to demonstrate by the Israeli Prime Minister's Residence and remind him that he was empowered (there's no direct election for PM) by the Israeli citizens to be Israel's Prime Minister, not Obama's "poodle."

Especially having been raised and educated in the United States, I have no doubt, no doubt at all that America would cut out the pressure if we sent them packing. The American government has enough trouble with a sinking economy, health care issues and Iraq. They wouldn't fight us if they saw they would lose.

Our security is up to us! When we do the right thing, G-d will give us more strength. If we act weak and tired, it will be a self-fulfilling prophesy.
