It's the same in any lingo

בַּת-בָּבֶל, הַשְּׁדוּדָה: אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיְשַׁלֶּם-לָךְ-- אֶת-גְּמוּלֵךְ, שֶׁגָּמַלְתּ לָנוּ

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

Calling The Bluffs: Bibi Says, Meet Me In Be'er Sheva

Prime Minister Netanyahu made the following statement while conducting parliamentary meetings in the Negev capital of Be'er Sheva today:

"Let's make peace - both diplomatic peace and economic peace. There is no reason why we can't meet, the Palestinian Authority president and I, anywhere in Israel, and since we are in Be'er Sheva, I say, let's meet here.

"The Palestinian population living alongside us has a basic right to live in peace, security and prosperity. In recent weeks, we have made great efforts to ease their lives. We've removed many roadblocks, we have decided to increase the operating hours of the Allenby Bridge for more goods, and I've decided to advance a series of projects with the Palestinians to promote peace. But all these efforts can only bring us to a certain point, and the results will be multiplied by the dozen if there is cooperation from the other side."

He failed to mention that Israel is also arming the PA "security forces," (the last time Israel did this the PA used the weapons against Israel) and allowing the opening of a greater number of PA police stations (which Israel always ends up having to destroy as Fatah invariably turns them into terrorist operation centers.

Many in the Israeli public, the Knesset, and in Galut (the Jewish Diaspora) have been wondering, "What the hell is going on with Bibi?" Is he caving to Marack? Is he being an obstructionist? I'm starting to think he is something else: a Demonstrationalist.

The world has stood against tiny Israel for so long, is so enamored with hating Jews (for an poignant essay on the subject I will once again direct you to the Sultan of Knish) that the morality of the issue doesn't even register, an ironic prospect considering that even the SS commanders realized that having men execute thousands upon thousands of Jews face to face was psychologically damaging, which is why the gas chambers were first employed, as they found that killing anonymously was less emotionally taxing in the long term. It is this type of detachment that makes demonstrationalism necessary.

Hating Israel is anonymous Jew hate for the world. When you sit in your living room, roam the halls of government, march in the streets, and curse Israel it is an easy, user friendly way to express your Jew hate. You're not confronting a Jew face to face. There is no shame. There is impending reproach, no rebuke, no chance that you will have to face the Israelis and hear their tales of the Arab riots and massacres of Jews, or hear from families who had loved ones incinerated in a bus bombing, or hear the testimony of a child from Sderot about their panic attacks, or dead or dismembered friends, or hear from the people of the generation who grew up in bomb shelters before Syria was pushed out of the Golan. It's easy. It's simple. It's guilt free. Demonstrationalism will not necessarily enlighten the pathetic racist Jew hater, but it will put their immorality in their faces to either examine and alter, or turn and ignore.

At Bar-Ilan Bibi laid down his terms for the creation of a Palestinian state. I would have rather he told Marack that Israel was not going to be made a subject of the Empire of the United States and follow its own path in dealing with the Arabs of Judea and Samaria, but he did the next best thing. He chose to call the bluff. He said, sure there can be a Palestine...if they are willing to accept all the things they have always said they would never accept: a unified Jerusalem under Israeli control, Israel as the permanent home of the Jewish people, demilitarization, and secure, defensible borders for Israel which means control of the Judean Hills and the heights guarding the Jordan Valley. Jewish nationalists, and many members of Likud have been dismayed that he made any utterance of verbiage that could be seen as legitimating the concept of "two states for two peoples," but he chose to walk the line.

The world is clammering and yammering for a Palestinian state so Bibi has essentially said, "Sure earth, you can have your precious's how." The conditions he laid down have already been rejected not only by the PA, but by the leaders of every Arab state in the region. But that was not enough for the stupid Jew haters of the world and their team captain, Marack Insane Pajama. He wants concessions on settlements because that will make the Arabs take notice that Israel is serious (actually it's because he endorses the Saudi plan of Israeli national suicide which involves Israel returning to the 1949 ceasefire lines; evacuating Yesha and the Golan Heights so that all of Israel can live in bomb shelters while the Arabs enact their version of the final solution...and if you have yet to accept that this is his plan then you are living in a fucking dreamland and you better wake the fuck up...that goes for all you Hillary supporting PUMAs out there that think she's doing such a bang up job at State as she endorses Israeli must accept that she has demonstrated her approval of this plan by her actions...when she quits and denounces her former boss and his plan that will be another story...until then you might want to take a look in the mirror and ask yourselves what makes you any different than an Obot at this point).

The fact is that here in the real world the settlement issue is bullshit. The Arabs are not getting the Judean Hills and Israel will maintain the status quo indefinitely as long as the Arabs reject this; and nothing short of Samantha Power's genocidal fantasy of invading Israel to force the creation of Palestine (and you thought all the neocons worked for Darth Cheney), is going to change that (unless Israel is stupid enough to put Tzipi Livni in power, which polls indicate they are not). No, what makes a difference in the daily lives of Arabs in Judea and Samaria are the things that Bibi has done over the last two weeks which he laid out in the statement above. These are real gestures. These actions are a collective statement to the Arabs that Israel is willing to take these actions. Now, meet us in Be'er Sheva.

This isn't a speech before the world. This is a direct line open to Abbas. Look what we've done. Your people can move more freely, get more goods, not have to deal with so many check points. We are willing to do those things and more, and give you a chance to demonstrate that coexistence can happen, that economic symbiosis can happen. This is a foundation for coexistence, what Israel has wanted with the Arabs from its inception, but that the Arabs have always rejected.

With his calling Abbas to Be'er Sheva Bibi is giving Abbas the chance to demonstrate unequivocally whether the PA wants a state, wants coexistence, and is willing to end once and for all its policy of Israeli/Jewish genocide. They already failed step one, rejecting Bibi's conditions at Bar-Ilan. Now we wait for them to reject this even larger step before the world. The question is, will Bibi take the third step in the face of Abbas' rejection of step two? Will he tell Washington outright; we have taken these steps. The PA continues to reject them. You are unable or unwilling to gain any concessions from them. We are walking away from this process. We will build throughout the Judean Hills and man the heights over the Jordan Valley, or will he drag this out with a third opportunity for Abbas and the PA to demonstrate that they are incapable of coexistence, that for them peace can only be attained through the expulsion and death of every Jew? Here's hoping that this is where he will end this nonsense. It's time. He should have done it at Bar-Ilan, but I can understand why he didn't. These new steps are as far as he should go (I can see him giving the PA the opportunity to reject the building of Israeli industrial plants in Judea and Samaria that would employ thousands of Arabs, since the PA is not providing any jobs with the billions it's getting from the IMF, World Bank, and the terror enablers of the EU, but that's just gilding the lily, and a waste of time if steps one and two are rejected.).

The Arabs can stay or go, but the Jewish homeland will not be the world's punching bag. We will not be asked to dig our own graves and lay in them for you to execute us and dump more bodies on top of us.

This is not Babi Yar. This is Israel.

And as I published this I found Abbas' answer:
Abbas emphasized that in a final status agreement, he would not give up on even one inch of the West Bank, saying that the Palestinians "demand territorial continuity between the West Bank and Gaza Strip and won't give up on the right of return."

Over the weekend, Abbas sent a letter to Obama in which he reiterated Palestinian demands for a peace deal based on a the establishment of a Palestinian state along the June 1967 borders.

The PA is determined to move forward with genocide. The Syrian foreign minister has also announced that it will not enter into negotiations with Israel unless the Israelis indicate that they will surrender the Golan Heights. There's your answer Bibi. Either stop this game now, or get out of the way for those who can. The names Tzipi Hotovely, Benny Begin, Uzi Landau, and Moshe Yaalon come to mind.
