Ceasefire or Cowardice, Bibi??
"This is not a relaxation, it's an Israeli agreement to the rearming of Hamas. What are we getting for this?"
~ Bibi on Olmert's 2008 Ceasefire ~
And yet Israel agrees to a Ceasefire in the same day as a bus is bombed in Tel Aviv? What was the American threat or bribe, Bibi? What caused you to sign up to such a sell out?
I would so love if you would answer my questions, Mr Prime Minister.
We had a chance three years ago to destroy Hamas in Operation Cast Lead. Instead we cowed to international pressure. We had a chance now to destroy Hamas. This time with less international pressure and the supposed support of Obama. At least that is what he has spoken to his media. Instead of continuing our assault and removing Hamas for good, we've Retreated. We needed to keep going, to Crush hamas, Flatten gaza and re-establish the land as part of Israel, populate the land with Jews and rebuild the cities as peaceful areas for Jews and any arabs willing to accept the sovereignity of the Jewish State. This strategy would secure the South from Rocket Rain but also be the best guarantee of arab lives too, which are squandered by hamas. The citizens of the South wanted this, the IDF wanted to 'finish the job'. Why didn't we?
Fox News has said that as part of the Ceasefire deal Israel agreed to open all border crossings with Gaza, including between Gaza and Egypt. What has Egypt got to do with anything and why was this deal brokered there? Why were such Jew haters even included? It obviously wasn't for Israel's good. Israel also agreed to ease the sea blockade. Could we really have agreed to this? And for what .... another failed cycle of 'ceasefires'?
This is not a 'win'. It is a sell out of our Torah & our people. It's time to speak out. It's time we let our government know we will only support it when it truly protects its citizens. And this it has failed to do. It is time to for this government to remember that elections are in the offing & if they don't represent our interests then we will look to elect those who will actually Lead Am Yisrael. To those who will secure our land, destroy our enemies and raise our profile & pride as Jews to the anti semtic world in which we live.
"But if you do not drive out the inhabitants of the Land from before you, then those whom you leave over will be as spikes in your eyes and thorns in your sides, and they will harass you in the land in which you settle".
~ Ba'midbar 33.55 ~
So, it's back to the Sound of the South, the Soundtrack of Southern Israel - פסקול החיים בארץ
