During the Holocaust there were a few people screaming at the top of their lungs at the Genocide that was being perpetrated by the Nazis against the Jews. Rabbi Aharon Kotler , Irving Bunim, and Peter Bergson come to mind. The world showed its true colors.

When Jews were being slaughtered the world was silent. It seems almost every day another hate filled Hamas affiliated Arab kills a Jew as what happened this past week when four Great Sages of Israel and one very loyal and selfless Druze policeman were killed in Har Nof. In my view the murder of Rabbi Moshe Twersky, Rabbi Kalman Levine, Rabbi Avraham Shmuel Goldberg, and Rabbi Aryeh Kopinsky is similar to the murder of Rabbi Akiva and the nine other Great Martyrs of the Jewish People by the Romans 2000 years ago.

The main difference is that Israel today is supposed to be a sovereign nation in its own sovereign land. Last I checked, the Arabs don't have sovereignty over the land of Israel nor will they ever. The whole discourse has to change. Ever since Oslo began in 1993, the Jewish People lost their ability to think and see straight. Mahmoud Abbas is not a friend and will never be a friend. He is part of the problem, not part of the solution. The Arabs have been empowered by the Oslo process, the Oslo thinking, and the Oslo speak. All of this has to radically change. No more talk of a two state solution, no more talk of peace partners who teach their children hatred of Jews and the State of Israel. Oslo is over.

It is time to act responsibly instead of politically correctly. The Arabs do not understand how much Israel has tried to help them. It is up to the Jews to realize that outrage is what is needed, not more talk of pleasantries and acquiescence. The young Arabs never saw the might of the IDF. All they have seen is the empowerment of men like Arafat and Abbas. It is high time to realize the situation is totally out of hand and out of control. It is time to go back 30 years when it was clear that every Arab incursion, every Arab terrorist incident would be met with swift and forceful retaliation. Abbas can't continue to get a free pass. He has to be held accountable. Check points have to be put back in place over the objections of President Obama and Hilary Clinton both of whom were responsible for getting them removed in the first place. Iran has to start tomorrow without its Nuclear Reactors. Israel must rid the world of this ticking time bomb. Iran has to be taken care of while Obama has lame duck status. Congress will give Israel everything it needs. Israel cannot live in fear of Obama.

He has been relegated to the Bullpen of history. He is no longer a starting pitcher. His fastball is gone and the Media no longer considers him their darling. Even the Media got hurt by Obama's shellacking on November 4th. He made them look bad too. Israel has to once and for all rid themselves of the Hamas Terror Machine. Gaza should not be rebuilt until Hamas is run out of town. All of these measures are, or should be in the pipeline of ideas. It is a matter of time before Israel realizes what it has to do to bring peace and security to its citizens. This is its first and highest priority. The time for outrage is now.
