There have been many miracles that have occurred in the land of Israel since the days of the Maccabees; most recently they have involved Jewish military victories against larger, better armed Arab armies. It is also a miracle that, despite completely inept, irrational political leadership that insists on maintaining a declared enemy population within its borders, and has, and is planning on again giving away Jewish land to that same genocidal enemy, Israel has managed to survive as long as it has. With the gross corruption and incompetence at the highest levels of the Israeli government, and the military for that matter, it is nothing less than Divine intervention that has kept Israel alive, especially since Menachem Begin stupidly gave the Sinai away to a still embittered enemy in Egypt that facilitates the arming of Hamas in Azza and, as recently as last month, still declares that it refuses to accept Israel as a Jewish state, its sole geo/political purpose as recognized by international law.
I propose that there be a new dreidle fashioned replacing the nun for the word nais (miracle) with the letter bet (ב) for balagan which, among its many uses, essentially means a ball of confusion and chaos. That is exactly what Israel is experiencing, and has been experiencing since 1993 when Israel stupidly became involved in the Oslo mentality that capitulating to terrorists, accepting their false historical narrative, and giving up Jewish land, would somehow make them unrabid genocidal murderers, whose only common goal is to kill every Jew in Israel. So, after withdrawing from Sinai, Azza, and southern Lebanon, as well as giving over control of Arab population centers in Yehuda and Shomron, where is the love?
Perhaps in can be found in the latest attack on Jews in Yesha, the stabbing of a woman in Gush Etzion by an Arab, presumably a resident of the nearby village of Al Aroob. Why did this attack happen? For one simple reason: Defense Minister Ehud "Mr. Freeze" Barak ordered the removal of the checkpoint at the intersection where the stabbing took place. You see, stupid idiots like Barak think that if a Jew makes a goodwill gesture to an Arab, like restoring their uninhibited freedom of movement, that they will stop wanting to kill Jews. Instead, as consistently happens when the Leftists do something this stupid, the Arabs use their freedom of movement to immediately begin killing Jews via stabbings, shootings, axe wielding, and of course roadside bombs and homicide belts. There has never been a time when this was not the case...NEVER. And yet, stupid moron fucks like Barak and Bibi repeatedly put Jews in harms way by taking down checkpoints.
The IDF's military presence is being downgraded across Yesha. IDF assets are being used to protect the Civil Administration Gestapo trying to enter Yesha communities. Recently, the IDF installation in Efrat, near Beit Lechem (Bethlehem) was withdrawn. It will likely be only a matter of time before attacks start happening there in earnest. And why is this? So that the Jews will feel naked and vulnerable, and perhaps decide that staying in Yesha is not such a good idea. Then perhaps they will stop resisting their impending evacuation. In fact, the exact opposite is true. Seeing that the army is being used against them, it seems that some Jews are taking matters into their own hands.
A Jewish protest campaign called Price Tag is seeing Jews lashing out at Arabs in the face of the law enforcement against Jews in Yesha, while Arabs are being given the freedom to attack them, and build illegally without opposition. The most recent incident involved the vandalizing of a mosque in Shomron. While local rabbis and other Jewish leaders are condemning the act (it is presumed it was a Price Tag incident due to graffiti found at the scene, though investigations have not turned up any actual suspects as yet), the simple fact is that this type of thing is only going to keep happening.
The Jews of Yesha are living there for one simple reason: the land was given to us by G-d, and we are commanded to live there. We are not there as occupiers. We are not there because of hatred. We are there because G-d demands it. Even the Koran teaches that the land belongs to the Jews, and that we are to live there. If the residents are left unprotected, and are being threatened with eviction, you bet your ass they are going to take matters into their own hands.
In the meantime, the PA and the White House are doing everything possible to create an atmosphere that will force the commencement of the third intifada in the face of the weakness in Jerusalem. They can smell blood in the water, and so does the White House. Aaron Klein is reporting that Marack administration officials have made it known to the PA that the White House wants most of Yesha evacuated, and Jerusalem divided.
The path to peace does not depend on Jewish weakness and capitulation. It depends on strength, faith, and adherence to our relationship with Hashem. The Arabs of the Middle East are united in their purpose: killing the Jews and destroying Israel. The Jews of Israel do not have a common purpose. The people, in increasing numbers, do not desire to see an Arab state created west of the Jordan River, but the Leftist leaders and their mindless zombie followers, who clearly don't live in Sderot, Ashdod, Ashkelon, or anywhere else that kassam rockets fall, still think that if they hand an Arab a knife and stick out the Jewish neck, that the Arab won't slit the Jew's throat.
And so, the great balagan happens there. And it is going to keep going down this way until one of two things happens:
- Israel is destroyed
- The Jews of Israel remove the Hellenist capitulators from power and replace them with Maccabees who will not give away Jewish land, who will not entertain terrorists within the borders of Eretz Yisrael, and who will unequivocally say that the land of Israel is given to us by G-d, is given to no one else, and that no man made law or force can change that.
Instead of debating whether to or not to release convicted killer Marwan Barghouti, currently serving 5 consecutive life sentences for perpetrating terror attacks against Jews, he should be pushed out of a helicopter over Gaza, or at least be stripped of his ability to participate in Fatah and PA business, as well as his cable tv, internet, and conjugal visits.
And, just so we end on a high note, Israeli security forces apprehended a 27 year old Arab who is suspected of attempting to carry out a bombing in Ashkelon. A resident of an Arab village in Yesha, he was in the city illegally.
And Hamas, on the eve of it's 22nd anniversary of terror, is declaring that it is rebuilding its armed force in Judea and Samaria to continue its war against the existence of Israel there, a much easier task now that the critical checkpoints are down, and the IDF is busy protecting the Civil Administration Gestapo instead of Jewish communities. They also plan to reveal a "surprise" at their terror party tomorrow. I bet it's a legion of suicide toddlers. Their mothers will be so proud. I wonder if Barak, Peres, and Bibi will be there to pin medals on them? The great miracle there would be if that didn't happen.
