It's the same in any lingo

בַּת-בָּבֶל, הַשְּׁדוּדָה: אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיְשַׁלֶּם-לָךְ-- אֶת-גְּמוּלֵךְ, שֶׁגָּמַלְתּ לָנוּ
אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיֹּאחֵז וְנִפֵּץ אֶת-עֹלָלַיִךְ-- אֶל-הַסָּלַע

How can one be compelled to accept slavery? I simply refuse to do the master's bidding. He may torture me, break my bones to atoms and even kill me. He will then have my dead body, not my obedience. Ultimately, therefore, it is I who am the victor and not he, for he has failed in getting me to do what he wanted done. ~ Mahatma Gandhi
If I am not for myself, who will be for me? If I am not for others, what am I? If not now, when? ~ Rav Hillel, Pirke Avot

Bibi's Demonstrationalist Campaign Rolls On

Following the cabinet meeting in Be'er Sheva where he called on Abbas to meet him and respond to the gestures Israel has made (removing checkpoints, roadblocks, extending the openings of the Allenby bridge, etc), he returned to Jerusalem for a ceremony marking the 105th anniversary of the death of Theodor Herzl, considered the father of modern Zionism. At the ceremony he again opened the demonstrationalist door for Abbas; giving him another opportunity to show the world that coexistence is not what the PA wants.

At the ceremony, Bibi stated the following:

"The key to peace lies in explicit and unequivocal recognition of Israel as the Jewish state on the part of the Palestinians. They must once and for all give up the demand to resettle inside of Israel the descendents of the refugees."

"The Jewish state is the key to our existence and the key to achieving peace with our neighbors."

[the leaders of the Palestinians must say] "We have had enough of this conflict; we recognize Israel as Jewish; we will live alongside you in true peace."

"They (Palestinians) must abandon their demand to settle the descendents of Palestinian refugees in Israel and gradually 'eat away' at the State of Israel after a peace agreement is signed."

"I long for the day when Palestinian leaders will tell their people 'we have had enough of the conflict. We the Palestinians recognize the Jewish nation's right to its own state in this country. We will live beside you in peace'."

"As soon as these things are said, a huge opportunity for peace will present itself."

As I posted earlier, Abbas has already made his position known: no Jews in Judea and Samaria; Arab refugees resettled in Israel; Israel being forced to accept the indefensible 1949 ceasefire lines; no recognition of Israel as the Jewish homeland.

And, as I posted earlier today, the time has come for this farce to end. The gestures have been made. The Arabs have responded with contempt and rejection when given the opportunity to demonstrate whether they accept coexistence. They have had their chance, for 61 years.
