Piece Talks?


All they want is a piece, right? All they want is a place for their people, right?

Well, not right. Not even close.

So far, the people who don't want peace (aka the Palestinian Authority) keeps making demand after demand from the people who do want peace. They want this, they want that. They want Jewish Israelis to stop building homes (and fixing up the homes they already have). They want "their own country" (which, in actuality, they could have had on numerous occasions -- Israel just doesn't want them to have the entire country, which is, in reality, what they want).

In exchange for just talking about this the "Palestinian Leadership" (and I use that term loosely) wants Israel to release hundreds (is it 400?) murderers. That's just to talk.

I don't understand why Israel is even entertaining this. In the past when Israel traded one person for hundreds of murderers (or anything else for hundreds of murderers) they were rewarded with more murders, more Israeli citizens blown up or shot or families murdered in their beds. Why in heaven's name would they even consider such a lamebrained move?

Seems to me that other countries' leaders are putting pressure on the Israeli government to do this. Why? I don't know. Don't they realize that a strong Israel is in their own best interest? Don't they realize that the Islamists in the Middle East don't just want Israel, they want every country? Don't they realize that the Palestiian people are not to be trusted? They have reneged on just about every agreement they have made. They don't even recognize Israel's right to exist. I wouldn't talk to them, particularly under their conditions. You attack us, we attack you; isn't that how it's supposed to go? Why is Israel the only country lambasted for protecting her own people?

Don't only think about what Israel is to the Jewish people; think about what Israel means to the entire world. Israel is the safety valve. Israel, by its very existance, keeps that part of the world from exploding.

And, remember, also, that Israel can no more make peace than a child's mother can make it snow for him.
