As the 3rd Intifada casts a dark shadow over our beautiful capital city of Jerusalem, I find myself recalling that great American movie Independence Day about aliens coming to take over our planet, destroying everything in their path.

It was nearly 20 years ago and one of my kids used to love acting out one particular scene by squashing his face against the plate glass window to the playroom. You may remember it: when the captured alien tightens its eely tentacle around the scientist's throat and, pressing his face against the Plexiglas lab wall, the alien uses the scientist's own voicebox to communicate with the American president on the other side of the glass.  

I Googled the scene and got this paste from the original sc‎ript: 


The President has moved closer to the glass and is talking
with the alien. The alien uses Dr Okun like a ventriloquist's

Why did you people come here?

Air...water...your "sun."

Where do your people come from?
(no answer)
Where is your home?


And before here?

Many worlds...

Can we negotiate a truce? is
there room for co-existence?
(no answer)
Can there be peace between us?

Peace? No peace.

What do you want us to do?


How similar this is to Israel’s predicament.
An alien nation calling itself The Palestinians comes out of nowhere, takes a look at the paradise Israel has created in 65 years and declares that it’s now their home. They set about subduing it with violence, blowing up whatever they can in the process.
They don’t communicate directly. Instead they put the world in a stranglehold of terror and use the feckless UN and  EU as their voicebox.
Can there be any peace?
No peace!
So what do they want of Israel?
To die.

What is it that leftists don't get about this simple truth?
