Israeli Democracy, Where Are You?

"Only the Likud can do it." That is why I don't vote Likud.

Even the mainstream media here in Israel is horrified by Bibi’s capitulation to American demands.  The United States, instead of trying to make peace where there is war such as Egypt, Syria and other real hot spots is using its clout on peaceful Israel.

For some totally incomprehensible reason, Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has gone against all of his sworn principles and elections platforms kowtowing to terrorist demands.  THIS IS NOT THE GOVERNMENT THE ISRAELI PUBLIC ELECTED!!  Jameel at the Mukata certainly got it right.

If you think that a pre-condition for peace talk negotiations should be to release savage murderers from jail, then raise your hands!

If you think Israel should make a mockery of it’s judicial system, and spit in the faces of the broken Israeli families whose children and parents were slaughtered by Palestinian terrorists, raise your hands!

If you think that Prime Minister Netanyahu should ignore popular sentiment and release terrorists just for the privilege of  sitting down at a table with a society that glorifies civilian murderers, then raise your hands!

If you think that Israel should bow to American pressure, endanger the lives of its citizens and soldiers, and free murderers while the US refuses to free Jonathan Pollard, raise your hands!

As we’ve seen in the past, “only the Likud can do it.”  That is why I don’t vote Likud.  Remember that it was the Likud that gave Egypt the Sinai and produced Disengagement, which provided the Arab terrorists with convenient launching areas for missiles against the Israeli South.  I miss the days when the Likud was in the opposition and prevented the Leftist Labor party from doing things like that. I’m not afraid of having the Likud in the opposition.

The Israeli public does not see the point of the faux peace talks, especially when we aren’t negotiating.  We’re capitulating to all of the terrorists’ demands.  And what are Israel’s demands?  Do we have any?

Just in case you’re curious, here’s the cabinet vote re: Arab terrorist prisoner release just to “sweeten” the pre-talk package for the terrorists:

Voting in favor of the 104 releases were Netanyahu, Ya’alon, Gideon Sa’ar, and Yuval Steinitz (all Likud); Aharonovitch and Sofa Landver (Yisrael Beytenu); Yair Lapid, Yael German, Peri, and Shai Piron (Yesh Atid); and Livni, and Amir Peretz (Hatnua).
Yisrael Katz and Gilad Erdan (Likud), Naftali Bennett, Uri Ariel and Uri Orbach (Jewish Home), and Uzi Landau and Yair Shamir (Yisrael Beytenu) voted against the measure. The Likud’s Limor Livnat and Silvan Shalom abstained.
