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.

  1. The Guardian says:

    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."

Because let’s face it: Hamas obviously can’t defeat the IDF in the field, soldier against soldier

IDF soldier injured in Gaza is evacuated by helicopter to Soroka hospital.

The residents of Gaza were not occupied by the Hamas; they voted for the terror organization in democratic elections, by a huge majority, by virtue of its uncompromising struggle against Israel. For this reason, the separation between the armed Hamas terrorists and those ‘not involved’ or ‘innocents’ is false. The Gazans are now paying for […]

Shimon Peres meets with the family of fallen IDF soldier Max Steinberg.

As Peres retires, Israel fights sour legacy: Insistence on setting policy in line with hopes, rather than with reality.

Our capital was not arbitrarily chosen, as capitals of some other nations were.

UNHRC High Commissioner Navi Pillay accuses the IDF of possible war crimes in Gaza again, cutting slack to Hamas.

People test Israel every day to see how serious we really are in knowing when we are right.

Should Jews in Europe take more responsibility in self-defense of community and property?

Germany’s The Jewish Faith newspaper ominously noted, “We Jews are in for a war after the war.”

The truth is we seldom explore with kids what prayer is supposed to be about.

Almost as one, Jews around the world are acknowledging the day-to-day peril facing ordinary Jews in Israel and the extraordinary service of the IDF in protecting them.

So on the one hand Secretary Kerry makes no bones about who is at fault for the current hostilities: he clearly blames Hamas.

King Solomon said it long ago: “Cast your bread upon the waters” because you don’t know when you’ll hit something. Our job is to do.

The anti-Israel camp does not need to win America fully to its side. Merely to neutralize it would radically alter the balance of power and put Israel in great jeopardy.

We mourn the dead, wish a speedy recovery to the wounded, and pray that God guides the government.

“The will to triumph is a prerequisite for victory.” Abba Kovner

Immediately end the occupation and declare Israeli sovereignty over the entire Jewish Homeland.

The demographic pessimists have failed.

For a rare moment – too rare – you taught us the true meaning of oneness.
Oneness at the front and oneness at home.

This is Stalin at his best, now implemented by Israel’s Ministry of Internal Security.

The right to defend oneself is a basic human right. But in Israel, it is not G-d Who gives him this basic human right to defend himself, but the State. And the State really does not want its citizens to bear arms.

And Shelly Dadon is not the first incident. Not even the second or third.
