Pay Attention To What The Enemy Is Saying

PA Ambassador: "First Jerusalem, Then We'll Take All Palestine"
The PA's representative in Lebanon says Israel's concessions in Jerusalem mean it will eventually collapse ideologically.

The Israeli media and politicians just don't listen, and they should. the Arabs are very "up-front" about their goals. Israel isn't. That's the danger.

Being "nice" and "accepted" shouldn't be national goals. That was Menachem Begin's great failure. He wanted to be "noble," rather than a great Jewish leader.

Bibi Netanyahu is making the same sort of mistake. He keeps trying to market himself as "Centrist." "Centrist" politicians end up falling through the cracks. Or they end of as totally forgettable failures, parve and blah. It's like painting a dirt-streaked wall with shellac.

And talking about dirt, I have a house to clean.
