Blame Bush For U.S. War Weariness

The Iraq war waged by President George W. Bush, in addition to all its other faults, including the deaths of over 4,000 Americans, was bad for the Jews and bad for Israel.

The Bush administration’s lies, which seemed to multiply the longer the war dragged on, together with the large number of dead and maimed American military personnel, created a mood of isolationism in the United States. This is why the vast majority of Americans opposed any military action by the Obama administration against Syria, even though Syria used chemical weapons against its own people.

In his book Years of Wrath, Days of Glory: Memoirs from the Irgun, the late Yitshaq Ben-Ami recalls Col. John Henry Patterson – commander of the Jewish Legion during the First World War who worked with Jabotinsky’s Revisionist Zionists – telling Ben-Ami and other Irgunists that because of the long exile, Jews had lost the ability to think politically. This was nowhere more apparent than in the strong support for the Iraq war voiced by American Jewish neoconservatives.

Farcical Peace Talks

Bolstered by an ever anti-Israel State Department and a naive John Kerry, the PA is able to circumvent all the requirements of the present “peace talks” – talks being championed by the usual collection of left-wing Israeli politicians, Palestinian Authority negotiators and U. S. moderators with a pro-Arab bent.

The current negotiations are a repeat of the Oslo Accords with potentially the same far-reaching consequences. Meanwhile, Tzipi Livni ignores the desires of the Israeli electorate by making concessions Benjamin Netanyahu himself does not approve.

Only after direct and open negotiations with easily monitored results can there be even a semblance of peace. As things stand now, the propaganda spewed by the PA and the constant demands for far reaching concessions from Israel make the “peace talks” a farce.

In their zechus may we all come to appreciate that life is a fleeting gift and resolve to spend every precious moment of it as if it were the last.

In any event, Mr. Netanyahu after the election sought to soften his statement on Palestinian statehood and apologized for what he conceded were remarks that “offended some Israeli citizens and offended members of the Israeli Arab community.”

A worthy idea any way you look at it.
