No Cities of Refuge for Terror
The Knesset must no longer consider any peace plan that prevents the IDF from protecting Israeli citizens. If one hopes that the terrorist leaders of the Palestinian Arabs will change their spots anytime soon, then he or she are on a path towards disappointment. The sooner the Palestinian Authority is not merely rebuked, but disbanded entirely, the sooner true peace will have a chance to flourish in the Middle East.
Likud members of parliament have been discussing giving slightly less land than Labor or Kadima would, but apparently they have indicated that they still plan to give out strategically valuable land the moment Abbas would sign a "peace" deal. But the Knesset must no longer beg the Palestinian leadership to come to their senses and return to the negotiation table. They must not stand outside the U.N. waiting for a defeated, demoralized Abbas to now make nice and pretty please take more concessions from us.
I join with the members of the Israeli Sovereignty over Judea and Samaria movement in calling for a change of intended policy by any and all members of the Knesset who are willing and able to speak these simple truths. I ask, further, that Gaza be taken back as well from the hands of the terroristic Hamas and restored as a peaceful land that people of all races and creeds are welcome to settle in.
Gaza today is a depot for missiles. A point of aerial attack against the civilians of Southern Israel. It is a perpetual threat for soldier abductions, with one such abductee being held hostage even today. Today is Gilad Shalit's 1883rd day (over five years) under armed captivity. With Fatah's marriage to Hamas, it does not take a prophet nor a military expert to predict that this is where Judea and Samaria are headed, God forbid, if the Palestinian Authority is granted the freedom that Israel gave to Gaza, God forbid. Such freedom is anarchy and is not protected under International Law. You don't have to be a rabbi or a priest to know that such anarchy is against God's will as well.
Let the members of Knesset speak the bold truth. The hope for political autonomy for the Palestinian Arab people West of the Jordan River has been slain by Palestinian Authority terror. Let the land and all peoples upon her rest from terror and share economic prosperity. Naturalize the Palestinian Arabs in Judea, Samaria and Gaza who forsake terror, in a gradual way that does not destroy the Israeli economy, infrastructure, nor political balance. Let all peoples unite under the democratic flag of the state of Israel.
May it soon be so, by the grace of God.
