Must muzzle him. He's at it again.
Who's the "him" and "he?"
Yes, as an English teacher and writer, I know that you don't use a pronoun without any indication of what it represents or refers to. I teach my students pronouns, as if they're the "X" in Algebra.
I'm referring to YESHA's irrepressible turncoat, Otniel Schneller. As I've said before, you can't be a little bit pregnant. In our context that means that a person who's willing to give up one part of Eretz Yisrael, the Land of Israel, will have no compunctions about giving up other parts.
Kadima MK Schneller shocked his neighbors and old friends when he joined forces with Olmert and became his enthusiastic salesman for "Realignment," aka Disengagement--meaning withdrawal (G-d forbid!)-- from most of Judea and Samaria.
I remember seeing him on TV, positively salivating over maps showing what he'd be giving to the Arab terrorists in exchange for... absolutely nothing. It's like going to a whopper of a Jewish wedding, eating the equivalent of four full meals and then insisting on sampling all the desserts. What's the point?
Disengagement has just brought the Arab rockets closer to the Israeli south, and Barak's Lebanon withdrawal only made it easier for Hizbullah to attack Israel's north. Schneller and Olmert are just making it easier to the Arabs to G-d forbid cut through our center.
Now, since those plans have proven more difficult, thank G-d! for them to implement, ol' Schneller has a new idea.
Yes, I kid you not! If you don't understand what this could mean to the State of Israel, look at a map. The ones here aren't my favorite, but you get the picture of what Israel would look like if we had to return to May, 1967, G-d forbid.
Simply put: We wouldn't survive. Today's Arabs aren't the technologically primitive ones they once were. It was Israel that set up the electrical lines and piped water. The British Mandate and Jordan never developed the area.
And there wasn't peace pre-1967 either. There were terror attacks and then they threatened war, to destroy us and push the survivors into the sea. Baruch Hashem, than G-d, He made a miracle and not only did we survive, but we liberated our Biblical Homeland.
Shabbat Shalom U'Mevorach!
