Arabs are Guilty, Not Israel!

Ad nauseum I am sick and tired of hearing that there must be something Israel can do to make peace, to make the Arab terrorists happy, to placate our enemies. I'm also fed up with hearing all sorts of lies, like I heard on Israeli Channel One TV News just before Shabbat yesterday.

There was this lying Leftist who kept coming out with blatantly untrue statements which were never questioned by the complacent newscasters. I have no idea who the guy was, but he said things like:

  • "In the past 45 years, Israel has done nothing to develop eastern Jerusalem," sic. OK, so what about the improved roads, sewerage, telephone service, electricity, medical service and the Light-rail?
  • "In the past 45 years, Israel has done nothing to improve life for Arabs in the westbank," sic. Who does he think set up the telephone service, electricity, water, sewage, modern roads, etc? When we moved to Shiloh 34 years ago, Arab villages still needed to use generators, water from wells, no sewer system etc. One thing that, davka, Yitzhak Rabin did was to greatly improve the roads, especially to bypass the cities. Many of the modern roads are Arab only!
  • "Arabs have no education nor employment opportunities," sic. Israeli universities are full of Arab students.  Arabs work in hospitals, pharmacies, taxi companies, law firms and more menial jobs. And just last week an Arab employee of Bezeq, the big phone and internet provider drove a company car into innocent Israelis waiting for a bus; then he jumped out stabbing them and killed one. Those Bezeq jobs are difficult for anyone to get, and they accept Arabs. It's pretty frightening to think that if you call Bezeq for service you may get an Arab terrorist in your home.

Really, how long will it take for Israelis to understand that we are not the cause of the Arab terrorism which targets us, wherever we are? And since we are not the cause, we also cannot do anything to end it. It will end only when the Arabs decide it should end. We can nudge them along a bit, but not with kindness. We've been trying that for decades or longer. Kindness makes us appear much too weak, and when they see weak they pounce even more. Our being nice just encourages the Arabs to try to finish us off.

The only thing that can push the Arabs into a more amenable stand is to be strong and determined and united against them. All Arab terrorists, no matter what their age, must be executed, not kept in our jails, and not given any legal rights. They aren't white collar criminals; they are murderers whether they succeeded in killing or not. Families that celebrate terrorist acts must be jailed and fined. If parents of minors have city or state jobs, or any job in which they are in contact with the general public, they must be fired.  There must be lots of ways the families can be made to suffer for the terrorism of their members. When they realize that Israel is serious about ZERO TOLERANCE, then the families will do their own policing.

And as I've said before, Prime Minister Netanyahu must stop trying to appease the Americans, United Nations, etc. Bibi must do teshuva, repent and say that he made a terrible mistake in supporting a Palestinian State. There is no historical justification for such a state. The so-called "Palestinian people" sic was an antisemitic invention during the Mandate to torpedo the establishment of a Jewish State! Bibi certainly knows this even better than I do, but he has this totally fokokt idea that to be a good Prime Minister he must be a Centrist and be accepted by the nations of the world. He's wrong.


We want a leader, not an appeaser!

If we make it clear to the Arabs that they will suffer the most from their terror against us, then there's a chance that those who want to live in peace with us will try to prevail. But if we keep trying to be nice to the Arabs, they will just respond with more terror!
