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 On The Goldstone Vote

The UN Human Rights Council, a bastion of hypocrisy surpassed only by the UN itself, is going to vote on whether to endorse or reject the Goldstone Report in which Israel has been found guilty of violating the human rights of terrorists, who admittedly use civilians as human shields, by defending herself against said terrorists.

Reminding his cabinet, and the world, what is at stake should the Goldstone sham be endorsed, Bibi said the following:
"In the next 24 hours a vote will be cast in Geneva within the UN Human Rights Council. I remind you that this very council has adopted more resolutions targeting Israel than resolutions targeting all other 180 countries in the world put together.

"If the council decides to endorse the Goldstone report it will deal a fatal blow to three major issues: Firstly, it will harm the war on terror, because it will legitimize terrorists who hide behind civilians and fire from their midst.

"The second devastating blow will be to the UN's status and its prestige. It will take it back to its darkest days when absurd decisions were passed within its assembly and empty it of all meaning."
[referring to the 1975 UN vote that Zionism is racism]

The third issue is the peace process itself. Netanyahu made it clear to the world that "Israel will not be willing to take risks for peace if stripped of its right to self-defense."

Does this mean that if the UNHRC endorses the Goldstone Report that Bibi will tell Marack to take the settlement freeze and cram it? Let's hope so. As strong as his words are, I'm still waiting for action from Bibi. An open rejection of a freeze is the best first step. Step 2? Expand existing communities, and replace road blocks that were recently opened, a move which has already led to Arab attacks on Jews. Step 3? Reject the creation of an Arab state west of the Jordan. They got the east bank. They can have it.
