Selichos For Oslo Supporters


The Israeli and American Jewish supporters of Oslo are asked to say special Selichos prayers this year in light of the terrible catastrophes inflicted upon Israel by the policies they have forced on the country.

The new Oslo Selichos go something like this:

For the sin we committed when we forced Israel to commit Oslo and assured the world that Arafat would pursue peace,

Please forgive us.

For the sin we committed when we forced Israel to commit Oslo and assured the Jews that Arafat would fight Hamas and Islamic Jihad without his hands tied, or, to quote Yitzhak Rabin, “with no Supreme Court or Betselem,”

Please forgive us.

For the sin we committed when we forced Israel to commit Oslo and assured Israel that hostility to Jews in the Arab and the Moslem media would decrease,

Please forgive us.

For the sin we committed when we forced Israel to commit Oslo and assured ourselves and others that trade between Israel and Arab countries would flourish,

Please forgive us.

For the sin we committed when we forced Israel to commit Oslo and assured Israelis that the PLO would cooperate strategically with the Israel Defense Forces,

Please forgive us.

For the sin we committed when we forced Israel to commit Oslo and assured the country that there would be an economic peace dividend,

Please forgive us.

For the sin we committed when we forced Israel to commit Oslo and assured our countrymen that PLO arms would never again be used against Jews,

Please forgive us.

For the sin we committed when we forced Israel to commit Oslo and assured anyone who would listen that the PLO would cease its efforts to delegitimize Zionism and Israel,

Please forgive us.

For the sin we committed when we forced Israel to commit Oslo and assured Jews that the PLO would denounce and renounce anti-Semitism, Nazism and Holocaust denial,

Please forgive us.

For the sin we committed when we forced Israel to commit Oslo and assured Israelis that the PLO would introduce democracy into the Palestinian zones,

Please forgive us.

For the sin we committed when we forced Israel to commit Oslo and assured our family, friends and neighbors that the PLO would be forced to spend all its energies on resolving domestic social and economic problems,

Please forgive us.

For the sin we committed when we forced Israel to commit Oslo and assured the nation that the international community would back Israel if the PLO reneged on its obligations or displayed duplicity,

Please forgive us.

For the sin we committed when we forced Israel to commit Oslo and assured Israelis that the Europeans would rush forward to support Israel,

Please forgive us.

For the sin we committed when we forced Israel to commit Oslo and assured the universe that the Japanese and Saudis would pour money into regional investments, including into Israel,

Please forgive us.

For the sin we committed when we forced Israel to commit Oslo and assured Jews that the non-Arab Moslem countries would gush friendship for Israel,

Please forgive us.

For the sin we committed when we forced Israel to commit Oslo and assured Israelis that Arab verbal threats against Israel’s existence would end,

Please forgive us.

For the sin we committed when we forced Israel to commit Oslo and assured our brothers and sisters that the Israeli Left would lead the retreat from the Oslo experiment it if proved to be not working,

Please forgive us.

For the sin we committed when we forced Israel to commit Oslo and assured Israelis that

the PLO would never show itself as a tin-cup Third-World kleptocracy if granted power,

Please forgive us.

For the sin we committed when we forced Israel to commit Oslo and assured Jews that the majority of Palestinians would denounce violence and terror,

Please forgive us.

For the sin we committed when we forced Israel to commit Oslo and assured Israelis that Palestinian chants of “In Fire and Blood will We Redeem Palestine,” “Death to the Jews,” and “Massacre the Jews” would end,

Please forgive us.

Please, please, please – forgive us.
