A Waste of Time


Mike Packer

Olmert has failed to convince the PA to accept Israel's latest concessions.

Nu, so what's new? Every proposal since 1948 has been rejected. What makes this one any different, or the next one, or the one after that. I just can't figure it out, either I am a total genius (which I sincerely doubt) because I have come to the conclusion that there is no-one to talk to on the "palestinian" side, or all our governments since independance have been total morons (which is more likely the case).

How many times must the hammer fall on your head before you put on a hard hat. Well, it is hard hat time!

The PA rejection was over the status of Jerusalem and the "right of return" of the 1948 Arab refugees and their descendents. Well, here's some news for the PA...tough shit, guys, it ain't gonna happen. It is time for the PA to start making concessions like recognizing the rightful existence of Israel in the traditional homeland of the Jewish people and with Jerusalem as its eternal capital. Enough of the hogwash about Jerusalem being an Arab city, it never was and with our help never will be.

The PA has been pushing the claim that Jerusalem was not the centre of Judaism and nor was the Temple Mount the site of our temple. The "palestinians" have never had a claim over Jerusalem until the last decade or so both spiritually or archeologically. Their claim that Mohammed rose to heaven from Mt. Moriah after racing from Mecca overnight on Al-Buraq is merely legend. The Holy city is not mentioned even once in the Qur'an and they pray with their backs to the Holy City (OK, depends where in the world you are).

Islam, in fact, when it mentions Jerusalem does so with Jewish connotations. For example, the religious code of ethics and behaviour known as Hadith believed by moslems to have been passed down through Mohammed, Jerusalem is mentioned as "Bayit al-Makdis" which is the Arab translation of the Hebrew "Beit HaMigdash" meaning the temple.

Since 2005, when the Moslem Waqf (religious council) started constructing a mosque in the Solomon's stable area of the temple mount, up until August 2008 numerous artifacts have been uncovered by Israeli archeologists at a dump for the construction waste. Some of these artifacts date back as much as 2500 years to the era when Babylonians destroyed the first temple. All these artifacts have Jewish names or motifs and, needless to say, Mohammed or the Moslems were not mentioned.

So, where does this all bring us? Well, our new candidate for PM, Tzippy Livni, is willing to give up almost 50% of the Land of Israel and parts of Jerusalem, just like her buddy Olmert. The people of Israel's tax money is again to be wasted on futile attempts to appease the International Community by creating a "palestinian" state who's only claim to fame will be the attempt to destroy Israel and undoubtedly perish in that attempt.

The other thing Livni won't do is deal with Iran. She doesn't know how and the people around her are as equally ignorant. We need someone who will attack Iran, hammer its nuclear capabilities into dust and then say "Hamas and Hizbullah! you're next". Unfortunately, I can't see anyone in the near political future with the fortitude to do it.....unless Bibi......
