The Monster That Bibi Built

i Robot
I am not at all surprised about the alliance of Fatah and Hamas, and I'm not surprised that without great fanfare most nations and international bodies accept the P.A. Palestinian Authority as a country. The minute Binyamin Netanyahu made that infamous speech in which he announced his acceptance of the "two state solution" the die was cast, and there was no looking back.

Netanyahu has always tried to insist that he had the upper hand and could make demands, in terms of security, military and borders, but the truth is the opposite. He can control the Arabs and their new state no more than anyone can keep a puddle on the floor from spreading all over.

It was Netanyhu's acceptance that has facilitated the rapid progress the P.A.'s Fatah has made, including having the confidence to officially join with Hamas. Mahmoud Abbas would have had a much tougher time if we had fought it tooth and nail. But the simple fact that the Israeli Government has been desperately eager to join any sort of "peace negotiations" with the P.A. smoothed the path to the situation we have now.

Batya, you speak true.

Only Mashiach - (May He come soon, Please HashemL )
Only Mashiach can straighten this world that has gone all upside down. Also our earnest prayers, Jews and Gentiles. Praying and repenting and doing all the good we can for all.
Bless you and wish you also a Happy Shavuot.

Maybe. But, that doen't mean we're supposed to sit around and not try to do anything until he arrives.
