How Can We Be So Stupid?

Somehow, stupid and crazy has become the norm.

You can get to the point of frustration repeating the same mantra over and over. Listen to me carefully: leadership is lacking in the United States and in Israel. Current "leadership" is deplorable. Politics has become a play with politicians playing clowns, felons, liars,

cowards and fools. Leaders
cant or won't lead, and we dance to their tunes like trained bears.

Ehud Olmert, Shimon Peres and other inept traitors should have been indicted long ago. Their efforts have been to appease the enemy or cover up their own high crimes and misdemeanors. Their only plan is to give away parts of Israel.

Negotiating for something real in return is out of the question. Israel dances and the world shouts "faster." Prime Minister Olmert continues with plans to dismantle Israel one settlement at a time. Who's stopping him?

Washington eagerly supplies Arabs with up-to-date weapons and state-of-the-art training. With the "friends" of Olmert, Israel doesn't need enemies.

I wonder, despite talk of "peace," are they complete idiots, insane or what? Do they really believe that another state on their border would be a peaceful partner? As a sovereign nation, Palestine would have the right to place weapons within striking distance of Israel's major cities.

Fatah-controlled TV regularly broadcasts that every Israeli city will be "liberated" because its "identity is Arab." Announcements in English demand a two-state solution, while in Arabic, death is promised. Death and more death to the Jews. They never hide their plans. They consider Jews the occupiers of their land. Why would Israel, George Bush or Condoleezza Rice "make peace" with an evil entity that has no intention of ever making peace?

Everyone knows that the objective of these "peace talks" is the eventual destruction of Israel. Does anyone truly think otherwise? I'm at the point where I don't even want to read the newspapers or listen to mainstream media. I can't blame it all on President. Bush, though. Most of the problem is due to the moronic behavior of Israel's corrupt leadership.

For instance, if it were up to me, I'd take drastic measures to wipe Gaza off the map in the name of self-defense. I would cut off all supplies - gas, oil, electricity, food, water, money, medicine and everything else that I could think of. Statehood is the last thing I would seek to provide them with. Transferring the population to Jordan is a better idea.

Despite the daily terror attacks and bombs lobbed across the line into Israel, Israel refuses to invade Gaza. They fear that the Palestinian Authority would stop supplying Israel with gas from a field discovered by Israel in 2000. This field, with an estimated worth of $4 billion, was given as a gift by then-Prime Minister Ehud Barak to the PA. Now, this "gift" is being developed with British Gas. Ariel Sharon opposed the deal. He knew the revenues would be used to fund terrorism. Present Prime Minister Olmert is going along with it anyway.

What gives Olmert the power to give away a country? Does "democracy" in Israel allow

incompetent leaders to open the jails and release terrorists in regular "good will gestures?" As I write this, Olmert is planning to release 400 hundred terrorists in another futile attempt to prop up Mahmoud Abbas.

Security is no longer an issue. Attacks on Israel are gauged by the needs of the international public forums. One recent release of 255 Fatah terrorists was dependent upon their promise not to murder Israelis. Most of those released had been convicted of attempted murder or the placement of bombs.

So, they were released. All except for one brilliant terrorist who stayed in jail so he could continue to receive free medication for his arthritis.

Did I also mention that the prisoners were given a three-month "trial period" during which they promised to avoid all terrorist activities? After that, they would be removed from the "fugitive" list. Later, according to one report, they would receive new weapons from the PA.

Our US Postal Service has okayed a Muslim stamp. At the same time, the ACLU is probably trying to block issuance of Christmas and Easter stamps. But let's not be politically incorrect. Our cities are becoming third-world communities with the influx of illegals, because my President favors a "guest worker" program. So, why am I expecting Israelis to march by the millions in protest of what they see happening in their country?

Gaza needs Israeli gas? Now that's really comical. Israel, the size of New Jersey, is constantly denounced as a threat to 22 Arab nations. Combined, these countries are larger than the European Union. Fifty-six Muslim countries that cover almost one-third of the Earth's land mass are unbelievably rich from oil, none of which seems to find its way to Gaza.

Has anyone watched what Fatah and Hamas have been doing to each other? To celebrate the memory of Yasser Arafat, the father of terrorism, a new building was erected as a memorial costing upwards of two million dollars. But the "refugees" dip into the till of the United States Treasury (pardon me, the United Nations Treasury) for more subsidies.

The lack of leadership and the blind stupidity of countries that follow these "leaders" are

sucking the strength and energy out of us. Somehow, stupid and crazy has become the norm. To keep on giving and giving and getting nothing in return, not even recognition of the right to exist, is ludicrous. And all the while, they keep demanding more and more.

Annapolis? No thank you.

The inept leadership of both the US and Israel must not be allowed to rewrite history. They ignore the lessons of history and are simply going to repeat past mistakes. The Roadmap to Hell had the pretense that it was for peace. Now? The only goal is the creation of a terrorist state whose aim is to destroy its neighbor Israel.

In addition, this state will cost Israel about 90 billion dollars in relocation costs for Jewish citizens. The increased cost of security would put a huge dent in Israel's budget. The Annapolis plans could bring Zionism to an end. Israel as a Jewish State might not survive. Where are the masses? Millions in Israel should be marching to stop this madness.

Let me end on a high note. This year, Islam and Judaism celebrated their holiest holidays by overlapping for ten days. During this time, Muslims racked up 397 dead bodies in 94 terror attacks in ten countries. Jews? We celebrated our 159th Nobel Prize winner. I rest my case.
