What came first the chicken or the egg?
Did Tsippi see a poll that her heading Kadima could do better than Bibi's Likud, and then she told Shas to $%$%&# it? Or did she go up in the poll after she sent Shas home empty-handed?
I forced myself to watch the TV broadcast of the Knesset session which declared that there will be elections this winter. It was nasty.
Peres, who's President was totally Loony-Left Political. He said that making peace should include painful sacrifices. He sounded like he was doing PR for some Sado-Masochist club. Sorry Charley, but peace isn't supposed to be painful. If it hurts, it's not peace!
Dalia Itzik claimed that "everyone" wants a National Unity Government. I don't. She didn't ask me. But then again, she doesn't care what I think.
Peres, Itzik and Tsippi were blaming these "unwanted elections" on everyone. They may not want elections, but I do, not that I have anyone to vote for.
Bibi playing for the "center," that empty hole in the bagel, mentioned that he would protect Jerusalem and didn't want to go back to the pre-1967 Six Days War borders, but the areas he mentioned as important for Israel didn't include Judea and Samaria.
It seems like it will be a two party (there aren't direct elections for Prime Minister) fight. Labor under Reign of Terror Barak isn't popular. I wonder if it's "him," or do people remember the terrorism during his term as PM or has Kadima taken over their constituency?
The worst of it all was that it was so clear from all of the words that nothing important to me is important to them. They all speak in their "everybody" language, but I'm not part of those groups.
Even though the Israeli Media and most politicians range from Radical Loony-Left to Meaning Well-Left and Faux Center-Leaning Left, I'm firmly in The People and Land of Israel First and Indivisible. I haven't heard any politician with that message. I'm not giving up and not giving in.
I honestly and firmly believe that the amcha, your typical Israeli, the Israeli version of "Middle America," actually relate more to what I believe. The problem is that many are vulnerable to the media and want to be like what the broadcasters tell them to be. I wish I had a way of talking to them.
We are a special people and have one small piece of Land. If we give parts of that Land to our enemies, they will attack us, but like the Arab terrorists who are now in Gush Katif. It's not like putting in the wrong number in your cell phone, you just erase and go back a step. Every time we gave the Arabs more sovereignty, guns and Land they've used it against us. It's idiotic (and possibly psychotic) to think that they're about to change.
I feel like I'm locked in an insane asylum, the only sane one, imprisoned by maniacs.
