There is nothing here about a "two state solution." It's not on the menu, not on the itinerary. It's definitely not in G-d's instruction sheet. It goes one hundred percent 100% against everything needed to preserve, develop and protect the State of Israel. So when people like Diskin make these uncalled for, nonsensical announcements I get very worried:
Diskin: Israel nears point of no return on two-state solutionWhat are his priorities? What values does he refer to? What is Diskin's definition of the goals and values of the State of Israel. He seems much too concerned with the Arabs and what others think. Diskin definitely downplays the risks. The risk is one very serious one, the total destruction of the State of Israel and the murder of millions of Jews. A "democratic state" should not be his priority; his and our priority must be a Jewish State and defining Jewish by our Jewish sources, traditions, religion, not the secular, western assimilated version of Judaism.
Former Shin Bet chief calls on Netanyahu to "overcome fears"; fears Mideast conflict is taking a back seat in Israeli public interest.
Given the complexity and the gravity of the situation, I would recommend that Prime Minister Netanyahu, who is famous for his admiration for Winston Churchill and is wont to quote him, make it a point to internalize this quote from the latter: “Success is stumbling from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm.” This is true leadership in a nutshell. It is a leadership that adheres to a determined path, one that is determined to realize the goals that it has established.
There is no alternative but to enter into a diplomatic process with the Palestinians, here and now, despite the anxieties and the numerous risks. Without such a process, we will certainly cross the point of no return, after which we will be left with one state from the river to the sea for two peoples. The consequences of such a state for our national identity, our security, our ability to maintain a worthy, democratic state, our moral fiber as a society, and our place in the family of nations would be far-reaching.
Western "democracy" is not Jewish. It is the antithesis of the concept of a monotheistic religion like Judaism. If we are to believe in G-d and that G-d invented/gave us Judaism, its laws, calendar etc. then we must also recognize that we do not have the power to veto or vote on those G-d-given laws.
