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

Reality Is Overrated: Part Deux

So PA Prime Minister (Kapo Regime) Salam Fayyad was in Aspen, Colorado taking questions at the Aspen Ideas Festival, which may or may not involve smoking lots of bong hits and seeing what sticks. Anyway, according to A7:

[former CIA Director James Woolsey] asked if Israeli Jews who chose to live in Judea and Samaria would be given the rights granted to Arab citizens of Israel. Among those rights are the right to vote, freedom of worship, free speech, “and most importantly, be able to go to sleep at night without worrying someone is going to kick down the door and kill them,” according to Woolsey.
In response Fayyad said:

"The kind of state that we want to have, that we aspire to have, is one that would definitely espouse high values of tolerance, co-existence, mutual respect and deference to all cultures, religions.”

[Jews remaining in Judea and Samaria] “will enjoy these rights and certainly will not enjoy any less rights that Israeli Arabs enjoy now in the state of Israel.”

Which would explain why that statement is completely antithetical to PA policy, and to recent statements from PA officials saying they expect every settlement evacuated along with every Jew. Or, to put it another way; we refuse to recognize Israel's right to exist as a Jewish state, but Jews can live with us as equals....

Salam, you might wanna make sure y'all are in touch with the other side of your faces before you throw that kinda stuff out there.

In other news from the Drudge report this morning

"Saudis give nod to Israeli raid on IranUzi Mahnaimi in Tel Aviv and Sarah Baxter
The head of Mossad, Israel’s overseas intelligence service, has assured Benjamin Netanyahu, its prime minister, that Saudi Arabia would turn a blind eye to Israeli jets flying over the kingdom during any future raid on Iran’s nuclear sites.

Earlier this year Meir Dagan, Mossad’s director since 2002, held secret talks with Saudi officials to discuss the possibility.

The Israeli press has already carried unconfirmed reports that high-ranking officials, including Ehud Olmert, the former prime minister, held meetings with Saudi colleagues. The reports were denied by Saudi officials.

“The Saudis have tacitly agreed to the Israeli air force flying through their airspace on a mission which is supposed to be in the common interests of both Israel and Saudi Arabia,” a diplomatic source said last week.

Although the countries have no formal diplomatic relations, an Israeli defence source confirmed that Mossad maintained “working relations” with the Saudis.

John Bolton, the former US ambassador to the United Nations who recently visited the Gulf, said it was “entirely logical” for the Israelis to use Saudi airspace.

Bolton, who has talked to several Arab leaders, added: “None of them would say anything about it publicly but they would certainly acquiesce in an overflight if the Israelis didn’t trumpet it as a big success.”

Arab states would condemn a raid when they spoke at the UN but would be privately relieved to see the threat of an Iranian bomb removed, he said."

You probably remember when I blogged on this a couple months ago. Like the Osirak mission in Iraq, the Gulf States are going to jump for joy if Israel handles this for them. Now we know for certain. But will the Russians hold off selling Iran the S-300 defense missile system? They said they wouldn't...if Israel bought it instead. Israel has said it's not interested, but we'll see.
