      Stop The Avalanche of Pseudostine aka Palestine sic State Recognition

      U.S. President Barack Hussein Obama gave it a year, a target, 2011, which starts in a couple of weeks.  Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu approved the concept.  So, now we'll be hearing of more and more countries, international bodies, media and leaders recognizing the Arab terror state that plans on supplanting Israel, G-d forbid.
      "Argentina and Uruguay said Monday they were joining Brazil in recognizing an independent Palestinian state..."

      There's no way we can live together.  It's one or the other.

      On June 14, 2009, Binyamin Netanyahu accepted an eventual Palestinian state which must “clearly and unambiguously recognise Israel as the state of the Jewish people”, meaning that Palestinian refugees must be settled outside of Israel’s borders, since resettlement within Israel would undermine its existence as Jewish. The Palestinian state must be “demilitarised, namely, without an army, without control of its airspace, and with effective security measures to prevent weapons smuggling into the territory”. The state would not be allowed to forge military pacts with other countries. Other “positions” included Israel's need for “defensible borders” and Jerusalem would remain as the united capital of Israel.[19]

      Bibi's plan is that he (Israel) can control the new Arab country, which is what his predecessor, Menachem Begin insisted when he came up with the idea of Palestinian autonomy.

      Some day in the future, historians will all agree that these ideas were among the most unrealistic,  inaccurate and dangerous ever conceived, seriously weakening the security and viability of the State of Israel.

       "It's not over 'till it's over."  I'm not going to predict the end of the State of Israel, because I'm hoping and praying that our political leaders will wake up and see that G-d is our true source of strength and power.  And then, with G-d's help, we'll be able to turn back the tide and experience true peace.

      May He make peace upon us and upon all Israel"
