Stalling Tactics And The Dubai Solution


         Now that Prime Minister Ehud Olmert’s doctors did not significantly stall the police investigation into his highly suspect activities, we must brace ourselves for the prime minister’s next delaying gimmick. If he gets desperate to diffuse the pressure seething around his corruption cases, he will simply send the army into Gaza.

 

         Olmert and his ministers have been talking for as long as we can remember about the army incursion that is getting ever closer. Everybody understands that Israel does not have a real military option in Gaza for a very simple reason: We were already there and we ran away. In other words, if Israel does not intend to encourage the Arabs to emigrate from Gaza; to annex the Gaza Strip to sovereign Israel; to build 100 Gush Katifs; and to destroy all those who try to fight against us – then there is no reason for us to enter Gaza. Israel’s current Oslo mentality will not allow it to follow the above route. So until there is belief-based leadership in Israel, there is no military option to solve the Gaza problem.

 

         If the problem is not Gaza, however, but rather the investigations against Olmert, then a military incursion into Gaza becomes a very logical option.

 

         Please take note that there is a very good chance that our sons will be sent to be killed capturing Gaza just to ease the pressure on the prime minister. After some time goes by, the IDF will retreat from Gaza once more. The missiles will return to Ashkelon, nobody will remember Morris Talansky, and nobody will remember our sons who paid with their lives to save Olmert.

 

The Solution: Dubai


 


         Over the past few weeks, in newspapers and television appearances, I have proposed the Dubai Solution for Israel’s Arabs. So far, the proposal has met with 100 percent success. Not one Arab or leftist with whom I have debated over the airwaves has managed to make a reasonable stand against the idea.

 

         Very often, people in high places perpetuate a problem so that they can continue reaping its benefits (usually money and power). The same is true for the Palestinian “problem.” The problem no longer exists; it has a solution. But President Bush comes to the Middle East, Shimon Peres talks about peace, and Tzipi Livni talks about the two-state solution – while Olmert proposes outrageous solutions to the virtual problem (no matter what the price). They all continue to reap a full array of benefits – from the problem that has faded away.

 

         After the Six-Day War Israel generously bestowed financial ties, knowledge and modernity upon the Arabs of Judea, Samaria and Gaza. That is how the Palestinian “problem” was born. When we drove ourselves out of much of Judea, Samaria and Gaza, we simultaneously dried up the Palestinian paradise, leaving the Palestinians subject to the rule of terrorist gangs. Today 80 percent of Gazans are begging to leave. In Judea and Samaria as well, 60 percent of the Arabs would prefer living elsewhere.

 

         The solution for the Palestinian “problem” has a name: Dubai. The oil sheikhdom is currently home to 25 percent of the world’s construction cranes. The tallest tower in the world is being built there – three times the height of the Empire State Building. These are just a few examples of the amazing economic boom called Dubai. The finest of the Palestinian elite already live there – engineers, teachers and doctors. The sons of the chairman of the Palestinian Authority call Dubai home. The professions they learned from the Israelis are in great demand. And it is not only there that this is the case.

 

         Many European states and Canada urgently need immigrants. That may be hard for us to understand. Israel has the highest fertility rate in the Western world. But in many Western states, the average family has less than two children. They do not have people to care for their large, aging populations. They do not have people to drive buses, work in factories and build buildings; in short, they do not have people to keep their countries functioning. Canada has changed its immigration laws to give preference to workers who are skilled in the things that the Palestinians learned from Israel.

 

         In short, all we need to do to solve the problem of the Kassam rockets attacks is to allow the Gazans to leave and then annex Gaza to Israel. It is that simple. They want to leave, the world wants them, and we want to return to all parts of our land. Can it be that the entire reason there is still a problem is because somebody is deliberately perpetuating it?

What is the solution? We must declare, and believe, that the Land of Israel is truly ours and once again build in Judea and Samaria.

During the First Lebanon War, the IDF forced the PLO terrorists all the way to the Beirut port and then to Tunisia. The PLO, which had lost its stronghold in Lebanon, was shattered.
