Good Riddance, Mr. Standley

Clearly, Standley’s conception of Israel’s right to live on our land is founded, not on mind, rather on emotion. His heart-felt passions are identical to those of many prior to him, over many many centuries. That is, rabid, unadulterated anti-Semitism, taking the form of EU anti-Israel policies, such as labeling Israeli products manufactured in Judea and Samaria. We are familiar with such practices, as were implemented in the 1930s and 1940s, when Jews were required to wear yellow Stars of David.

Standley equates Hebron as the opposite peace. Of course, he is wrong. Jewish, Israeli acceptance of Hebron as a Jewish-Israeli city can and will strengthen our hold on our homeland, on our country.  Abandoning Hebron is tantamount to waiving all of our land. Any intelligent person recognizes this as truth.  We have no intentions of committing suicide. We will not now, not ever, cut off our soul from our body.  Mind over heart; truth over lies; fact over fiction;  Hebron over Brussels.
