Bad News

During the 19 years that Jordan held Judea and Samaria it did nothing to develop it. Providing the cities and towns with modern infrastructure waited until Israel took over after the 1967, Six Days War. While I'm mentioning this "ancient history," I must remind or inform you that only two countries recognized Jordanian sovereignty, and they weren't even the Arab states. They were Great Britain and Pakistan.

During the 1970's and 1980's there would be periodic announcements in the Jerusalem Post saying that various cities (by name) were just connected to the Israeli water system or electric grid. When we moved to Shiloh in 1981, we could see that the generators in the Arab towns, we passed on the road, were turned off before midnight. At that time, even our telephone, the very few lines that went to Shiloh, were the old fashioned kind, via Arab operators. There wasn't even the availability of direct local dialing in 1981.

Now, of course, we and the Arabs here have the same modern life as all people in the western world.

I consider the news that "W. Bank city of Jericho to connect to Jordanian electricity grid" to be very dangerous and disturbing. It shows that Israel wants "out" of Judea and Samaria after investing so much.

63% among Palestinians agree that Palestinians should emulate HizballahÂ’s methods by launching rockets at Israeli cities compared to 35% who disagree. doesn't make me feel any better.

And don't forget that Russian-built Iranian reactor will be fully operational November 2007.

It shouldn't surprise you that Hizbullah moving rockets to Palestinian camps.

Sorry to be depressing you, but it's important to know our enemies.
