The principle that we must defend ourselves by ourselves was the guiding light of all of Israel’s governments – from the Sinai Campaign until the First Gulf War.

The U.S. may have promised the prime minister that it would act in Iran in exchange for a new “Disengagement.” The Americans will not keep their promise – and that is all for the better. Because the loss of legitimacy and the pressure that would come on the heels of such an action are much more dangerous than the Iranian bomb. The results of an American attack on Iran will be even more dangerous to Israel than Oslo, which was the result of the foreign attacks on the scuds sent our way by Saddam.

Netanyahu must attack Iran immediately. That is the only solution. If he does not do so, he will have signed himself onto the worst of all Israeli collapses: worse than Camp David, worse than Oslo, worse than the Disengagement.

Just like all of his predecessors who led the Right, the diplomatic process that Netanyahu is now being dragged into will not stabilize his government. Besides the loss of the land, Netanyahu will also lose his ruling position and the Likud will find itself in a place similar to that of Kadima.

    To my deep regret, I cheered when Netanyahu was re-elected Prime Minister 4 years ago. Netanyahu is an utter and complete disappointment. He has lost all credibility. Does anyone still believe him when he speaks of red lines? In international affairs, perception is reality, and by repeated making empty threats he has damaged Israel’s first line of defense – its ability to project power through a credible and unflinching resolve and strength of will.

  2. Tim Upham says:

    Defending ourselves from ourselves is the guiding light. Like Moshe Feilgin's 6 month prison sentence for sedition against the State of Israel.

  3. Sara Mandell says:

    I see the future outcome so clearly if our gov't. gives even one gain of Israeli sand to the P.A. The only time we get respect is when we respect our rights to our own country & all the holy Prophets, our forefathers & mothers. Nobody gives away their own parents graves to their ENEMY! No Country bleeds into the soil of their land, wins the wars, but keeps giving the land back to the enemies, only to bleed again. I have no respect for that kind of government. Our lives seem cheap to them, as they sip their cocktails during their expensive "getaway meetings."

The haredim are not afraid of connecting Israeli nationalism to its faith. Just the opposite. They are afraid to connect the Jewish faith to the Israeli nationalism reawakening in Israel.
