They’ve Finally Realized


Untitled-1

Again and again, Israel has given in to the Palestinian demands for a sign of good will, yet has received nothing in return. It is about time that the Israeli leaders understand that the Palestinian leader, Mahmoud Abbas has only one goal in mind and that is to push the Jews into the sea. He is happy to get more and more concessions from Israel and he wins when he convinces Israel to release more and more Palestinian murderers as he gives nothing in return. Abbas has been very successful but Israeli leaders finally woke up to his game plan.

John Kerry, the American negotiator, has been duped time and time again by Abbas, and I am not sure that Kerry finally realizes that the Palestinians are playing him and the United States president for gullible fools, because they still do not seem to understand the game that is being played. Thank G-d that the Israeli leaders have finally woken up to the reality of the situation and have broken off negotiations. Abbas has no reason to make peace and he has no mandate from the Palestinian people to make peace.

The merger with the Palestinian terrorist organization, Hamas, recently announced by Abbas’s government, shows the true situation because the terrorists have said time and again and continue to proclaim that there will be no peace with Israel. As we remember the fallen soldiers who gave their lives for Israel’s freedom and celebrate Israel’s Independence Day, we should reaffirm our sovereignty over all of Israel.

An example of our own self-imposed weakness is the Israeli attitude towards the Holy Temple Mount. Har Habayit, as it is known, must be reclaimed as a Jewish holy site and not an Arab site. It must be taken out of the hands of the Waqf Arab religious committees and returned to the Israeli Rabbinate.

Recently there was a horrifying video of Jewish religious school children trying to visit the Mount. A large number of Arab men and women surrounded the children and their adult teachers and pushed, screamed at and cursed them until the Israeli police escort forced the JEWISH children and their teachers to leave the holiest Jewish site in the world. Instead of breaking some Arab heads, it was the Jews who were forced to leave (as we approach Israel’s “Independence” Day). It is time that the Israeli government remembers who the sovereign of the Temple Mount is and exerts its control.

As Pesach concludes, we celebrate and commemorate sad and happy events that occurred in recent years. We commemorate the Holocaust and the masses of Jews who were murdered. We commemorate the Israel wars and the many sons and daughters who were lost in reacquiring our homeland, and we celebrate Israel’s Independence Day! May Hashem grant us peace and security in our homeland.

The Drama Mamas are not an ordinary theater troupe. “When we audition actresses,” says Elisheva, who also serves as the show’s director, “we like to explain to them that the main qualification is that you can honestly say, I have never been on a stage before, but I have always wanted to be an actress!”

It really is time for painful sacrifices for peace. No one wants his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren to suffer the pangs of war and strife. It is time to end the strife and make peace in the Middle East.

Israel is a country that understands security concerns. Many civil rights have been sacrificed in the name of security and Israelis are used to being checked every time they enter a shopping center, a large store or any public building. Americans recently learned that they, too, are subject to many checks on their most private activities.

The Israeli Parliament is usually controlled by a coalition of different political parties because no one party receives enough votes to have a majority. Unlike in the U.S., where there are two major political parties and one of the two political parties commands a majority of the seats in the Senate and/or in the House, in Israel the government is composed of many, many small political parties, each pushing its own agenda.
