Since Israel isn’t the Aggressor, Peace Isn’t Up to Us

David Ben Gurion reading the Declaration of Independence of Israel on May 14, 1948 in Tel Aviv

The State of Israel from its very inception, from those few simple words of independence and even before, has always bent dangerously over backwards to have peaceful coexistence with the Arabs who live here in our Land. Therefore, peace, true peace, isn’t up to us. We’ve offered it on gilded platters forever. Nothing we do will bring peace to our Land.

It’s the aggressor, the Arabs, who terrorize us, murder, maim Jews and undermine our national security who must change totally for there to be peace, true peace.

The demands of the P.A.’s Abbas must be silenced!

Speaking to a group of Israeli journalists in Ramallah, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas laid out his three conditions for continuing talks with Israel: that Israel release the fourth batch of Palestinian security prisoners, including Israeli-Arabs, and that none of them be deported; that Israel freeze all settlement construction; and that the first three months of the extended talks deal with the borders of a future Palestinian state. (Jerusalem Post)

We should be shouting out the truth!

The messages Mahmoud Abbas sends to Arabs are the ones we should be paying attention to, not his well-crafted English for foreigners and journalists. Remember that we’re not going to have peaceful coexistence with his public relations team. Peace has to be with ordinary people, and the Arabs Abbas is trying to control either support Hamas or prefer that the Israeli Government stay in charge. There are very few Arabs, except those on the “take,” who want to perpetuate his rule. Corruption is rampant in the P.A. under Abbas.

Abbas admits PA sent terrorists to kill Israelis
PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas:”I demand [the release of] prisoners because they are human beings, who did what we, we, ordered them to do. We – the [Palestinian] Authority. They should not be punished while we sit at one table negotiating. Besides, they spent many years in prison. How much longer? Do they have to spend all their life in prison and even die there?”Interviewer: “How can we deal with their criteria “bloodstained hands?”

Abbas: “Such talk is illogical talk and I do not accept it. What does a bloodstained hand mean? We were fighting each other. They kill and kill. They hunt down people with planes and tanks and killed. The soldier who kills 50 or 20 persons here and there – are his hands stained with talc powder? They are stained with blood. This is war. One (i.e., Israel) ordered a soldier to kill, and I ordered my son, brother, or others, to carry out the duty of resistance (i.e., euphemism for terror). This person killed and the other person killed. So why say this person’s hands are stained with blood, and [he] must be kept in prison? He is a fighter just like any other fighter. We were in a state of fighting. When a truce is reached, in any country in the world, the past is forgotten… What meaning is there to peace with the Israelis if the wanted continues to be wanted, the prisoner continues to be imprisoned, and the deportee continues to be deported? What am I worth in the eyes of the ordinary [Palestinian] citizen? The ordinary citizen will ask me: ‘What did you get me? You ordered me – you are responsible for me.'”
(Palestinian Media Watch)
There is only one logical thing for the State of Israel to do. Just tell the truth.THERE’S NO WAY THAT ABBAS IS CAPABLE OR WILLING TO “MAKE PEACE” WITH ISRAEL, SO WE ARE CUTTING OFF ALL NEGOTIATIONS AND SUPPORT FOR HIS CORRUPT ADMINISTRATION!
