      Bibi's Capit, Kaput


      If you want to read more of my writing, then please check out my blogs, Shiloh Musings and me-ander. I also appear on Voices TV. Now for my reaction to the latest Israeli Government fiasco:

      Bibi's Capit, Kaput
      there's no doubt in my mind that the Likud and its forerunners have been the worst governments for our security and strenghthening our hold on our Historic HomeLand

      Israel's Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's capitulation to foreign demands for a building freeze in Judea and Samaria should make him totally kaput for those who kept insisting that he's Right and Reliable.  I could have titled this:

      Re: Bibi, I Told You So!
       
      Granted that I haven't trusted the Likud, and its forerunners (Herut, GaHaL) since Menachem Begin signed the Camp David Accords to give Egypt's Sadaat the Sinai over thirty years ago.  But ever since I heard Bibi speak to us Jbloggers at the very first International Jewish Bloggers Convention almost a year and a half ago, I had no doubt that he'd be worse than Labor/Kadima in power.
      Why worse?  Simply because he doesn't have the great orator Binyamin Netanyahu in the opposition to point out the faults in those dangerous Left wing policies.
       
      Of course the Arabs aren't happy, because they want us dead and gone, not restricted.  This new policy certainly won't bring us peace, just more terrorism and war and international pressure.
       
      Having lived through most of Israel's history up close, there's no doubt in my mind that the Likud and its forerunners have been the worst governments for our security and strenghthening our hold on our Historic HomeLand.  Having Binyamin Netanyahu as Prime Minister hasn't improved things one iota.
