Bibi’s Begging, and We Don’t Know Why

Bibi wants to release terrorists, and is surprised by the push-back against the deal. Neither side understands the other.

I think we are all in a bit of shock over Bibi’s plan to release 104 Arab terrorists. While Bibi is surprised at the push-back he’s getting.

After all, this isn’t the first time that Israel has released terrorists, nor the first time that Israel has released terrorists in a lop-sided deal. So while Bibi expected lip-service attacks, he wasn’t expecting this all-out full-frontal revolt, including from his most closest associates.

But this is the first time that Israel has released terrorists in exchange for nothing. Literally nothing. Not Gilad Shalit, not dead soldier’s bodies, not even a signature.

Simply nothing.

And the terrorists set to be released are some pretty horrid, unrepentant, hardcore murderers.

In the past, our Prime Ministers have claimed that what they see from there, is not what we see from here, but it appears the Prime Minister has become disconnected from realities on the ground, and that is why he was taken by surprise by the revolt. Sitting over there, he doesn’t understand what even the most simplest person in Israel understands. There isn’t a sane citizen in Israel that understands why he is doing this, or even understands his stated explanation as to why he is doing it.

We, the citizens of Israel, were not happy about the government freeing 1000 terrorists for Gilad Shalit, but we understood that since the government has lost its ability to save him, this would have been the only way to free him.

But this deal? It has no upside. It has no benefits that we can weigh it against. We can’t even say its capitulation, since he’s not capitulating to anything.

He’s just freeing terrorists to get the Palestinians to show up at the table.

That’s not capitulation. That’s begging.

One must assume that the US has threatened Israel with something serious. It must be something serious. I hope its serious, because I can’t imagine any other reason for Bibi to do this.

    bibi is not a leader. just another demagog, power hungry blind fool.

  2. Dearly Beloved Obama, of whom most Israeli's since day one, have not trusted , despite all the beautiful language about him being the best American President since Huckleberry Finn, must be threatening Bib with something major, like no protection at United Nations or perhaps weapons or money. Nothing else makes sense.

  3. The Guardian says:

    As always, the greatest threat to the Jewish people come from within the Israeli camp. BN is leading us to disaster. He is weak, and bows to foreign pressure from nations and leaders that wish us harm. What Israel needs is Zionist leadership with courage of conviction. Likud is dead.

  4. I agree with you and his devil's advocate Kerry is doing his job. Do not release the murderers Israel.

  5. Bonnie Moore says:

    He is NOT the best president ever (*gag*), and when his reign of terror is over, things are going to start coming out. He is already touted by many to be the worst president we've ever had. I can't believe anyone out there is still on his bandwagon. He is a fake and a liar, and he just threw a RAMADAN dinner in the White House, so he apparently still thinks we're all stooopid. >:((

  6. Michael Dar says:

    We are entitled to know what threats the US Administration made to force Bibi to give in to this disgraceful onesided immoral prisonner release…Hussein Obama's filth must be exposed. People around the world and in Israel who support and love Israel should express themselves by all means..organizing protests etc..

  7. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. How many times do we have to be "Fooled" by the Palis to get the point? I don't know what Netanyahu is thinking, maybe Kerry hypnotized him. We must make him hear it from the 90% of us who say resoundingly: NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

  8. Bibi, must resigne, he is a coward and liar, hehas to go to jail with his lackeys becouse it is forbiden by international law to release any terrorist, this derives of "no crime without punishment", it is codified and is deducible from the authorative Nuremberg Principles are known in law as hostes humani generis , or "common enemies of humankinds".

  9. Yeah its disgusting – makes me feel like all my service/sacrifice as a combat soldier in the IDF is for nothing.

  10. Yeah its disgusting – makes me feel like all my service/sacrifice as a combat soldier in the IDF is for nothing.
