Now it's the US's turn

America is in  an uproar. The Obama  administration swapped five  Taliban terror leaders  for one US soldier..

I had to smirk as I watched  the US media screaming for a full investigation into this folly that will only  cost more American lives  and strengthen the  resolve of the   enemy.  Increasing  voices are heard  warning about  the enemy's  whetted  appetite for further abductions.

Where  have I heard these  sounds before..? 

Ah yes in the most moral country in the  world, my beloved Israel. We are so very moral  -   with our enemies. - .two hundred  times more  moral than the US. They only swap one for  five. We are a light unto the nations. We open the  prison doors to thousands at a time...time  after time. Sometimes to free a known arms smuggler who happens to be  a friend of a prime minister and sometimes  for body parts.

It is not  true that we  copy  every thing from America. They are beginning to  copy  from us. 

Our sages teach us,"He  who is merciful to the wicked, will be  cruel to the merciful." This was learned  when Saul pardoned the king of the enemy Amaleks and then wiped  out a city of Priests and  tried to kill young David.

Misplaced  mercy is  a very dangerous habit.

In our role as light unto the nations the Peres group rolled out the red carpet for career Jew  killer Yassar  Arafat , armed  thousands of his thugs and raised him to Nobel Prize stature. I wonder what the thousands of  mourning Jewish families, whose loved ones were  killed with the bullets from those weapons feel about that mercy.

Exactly like Saul, the  moral Israeli government turned on the  very best we have, the pioneers of Gush Katif and the Shomron  and later Amona Thousands of lives destroyed and thousands of rockets later....the moral voices like Shimon Peres, the high priest of national  self delusion insists it was the  only way to go. This is  sophistication.

Mr. Peres, In a few weeks you will set off to America to accept yet another major "freedom" medal from your  friend  Barak  Hussein  Obama.

I am sure you will be able to share with  your host  pointers  on how to graduate to the next step of morality.

Oh, and just for the sake of a nice photo op.. please bring our beloved  brother Jonanthan Polard home with you this time. Fat chance.
