Disconnect Israel’s Interests from America’s

Shamir’s blunder was even greater than Golda Meir’s in the Yom Kippur War.

Iran, Syria and Egypt have developed an even more elegant way to fight Israel without threatening their own civilian populations. They fight by proxy. In the north, Iran and Syria use Hizbullah to fight Israel. In the south, Egypt uses Hamas for the same purpose. Maritime weapons smuggling has become a thing of the past. The Philadelphi Route that Israel abandoned when it withdrew from Gaza is wide open, and the entire region is flooded with high trajectory missiles. Israel knows that any serious military incursion into Gaza will trigger a steady barrage of missiles on Beersheba and Ashdod – and possibly a simultaneous round of missiles on the north.

Ultimately, Israel will have no choice but to restore the power of deterrence that it lost in the First Gulf War. But in the meantime, Israel has a two-pronged strategy for dealing with the threat to its existence. First, it has rolled out the red carpet for the American president, so that he will be kind enough to protect Israel after it surrenders Jerusalem. Second, it has provided its citizens with a glossy pamphlet explaining where to hide when the missiles strike.

  1. You are right, Israel cannot wait for a US decision, Israel is in risk to receive missiles from any were, from Syria with chemical poison, or Iran a nuke, Israel has to go to its own and decide what to do.

    As an American who dearly and deeply loves Israel, I beg that Israel does not depend upon the US for her safety and security until we have a new president. Our current administration obviously is a muslim & supports the muslim brotherhood. Very scary for all involved. G-d BLESS Israel always.

    shamir's biggest blunder was ; agreeing to oust jonathan pollard from the israeli embassy in washington. he was foreign minister in peres' govt. as usual feiglin shoots from the hip, like a wild 'west bank' gunslinger. his pathological dissing of menachem begin, as being the cause of all of israel's ills due to camp david peace with egypt, glares, when he describes shamir as 'perhaps the best, israeli leader since ben gurion. thus feiglin, who has the potential of greatness, plays the role of fool and buffoon!!!!

    Moshe Feiglin, right again. I currently live is disporia, in process of Aliyah, one of my biggest concerns is that Israel spends too much time, land and Jewish lives on pleasing the US and EU. I'm a Jew and I often find that people discover this and let me know exactly how they feel. Not a problem, I don't start doing them favors to see if I can make them like me. We know from history, that the US didn't make any efforts to save Jews from camps, didn't want to get stuck with those additional Jews, same with Britain. We are Jews, our strength comes from HaShem, not the US. The land is ours, has always been ours, don't be the Jew that Mattathias ben Johanan would slay.
