As I've Said Before... You Can't Be Just A Little Bit Pregnant

All those Israelis and Jews who think they can satisfy the anti-Israel, anti-Zionist, anti-Jewish sentiment so prevalent in the world by "just being" against "settlements" in Judea and Samaria, are totally wrong. All it does is lend justification to those who don't want Israel to exist, who don't want Israel to thrive.

Those people don't see the fine distinctions between Ramat Eshkol, Jerusalem and Ramat Shmuel, Shiloh. For them there's no difference between Givat Tzarfatit (French Hill, Jerusalem) and Givat Asaf (the T junction to Beit El named after Asaf Hershkowitz who was murdered there by Arab terrorists.)

It doesn't pay to play these little word games as you can read in the transcript of the United States Press Briefing.

"... QUESTION: On Israel, I was wondering what your reaction is to the new Israeli budget that puts tens of millions of dollars for new construction in Ma'ale Adummim in the West Bank and Har Homa in Jerusalem.

MR. KELLY: I’ll see if I can get you more information on that.

QUESTION: Okay. And then just to clarify --

MR. KELLY: Yeah.

QUESTION: When you’re talking about no natural growth in settlements --

MR. KELLY: Yeah.

QUESTION: -- does that include any Jerusalem neighborhoods that are over the green line?

MR. KELLY: That – we call for a cease to all settlement activity.

QUESTION: Including Jerusalem --

QUESTION: (Inaudible.)

QUESTION: Including Jerusalem in that?

MR. KELLY: We’re talking about all settlement activity, yeah, in the area across the line...."

Remember that Arab terrorists don't distinguish between Jews of the Left or Right when setting a bomb and Hitler didn't exempt Jews who lived as Germans.
