אין עם מי לדבר, Ain Im Mi Lidaber, There is No One To Talk To
If they will never "recognize Israel as Jewish state," then they will never make peace with us. A "peace agreement" isn't peace. It's a piece of paper, no more, possibly even less.
The Israeli politicians ruling the country, from Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on down, must stand up for that simple truth. We are a country under attack by irrational, hate-filled Arab terrorists. Their culture isn't ours. I was going to add that it isn't the "western," Judaic-Christian culture, but considering that the world stood idly by when Nazi Germany systematically murdered millions of Jews, I'd say that there is a very sophisticated antisemitism dominating most modern cultures.
We must get real and do what's best for the State of Israel and not worry about what others want us to do. They'd rather build a memorial than see a strong, vibrant successful State of Israel in the Holyland.
