Israeli Sovereignty, the Key to True and Lasting Peace

I'm sure some chemist of physicist could turn this into a very simple irrefutable formula.

  • a lack of firm Israeli sovereignty attracts anarchists and terrorists who support an additional Arab state aka Palestine sic in the vacuum
The esteemed and veteran Israeli politician and role model for many, Geula Cohen, is quoted in a very interesting and convincing article in the Jewish Press, which they have reprinted from the new magazine Sovereignty of the Women in Green.
In a conversation with ‘Sovereignty,’ Israel Prize Laureate Geula Cohen alerts and states that “every day that passes without the application of sovereignty advances the establishment of the Palestinian state.” “The correct and proper solution is Israeli sovereignty over Judea and Samaria,” she says and calls for extra-parliamentary action in addition to the parliamentary action to advance the idea. “The road to achieving this doesn't pass only through conventions and committees but also through parliamentary preparation and waiting for the appropriate historical opportunity to pass the sovereignty bill. There needs to be a group of MKs that will present the bill and bring it up at the right time and pass it in Knesset. That requires parliamentary work.” “There is no group in the Knesset currently dedicated to this purpose. This must be their official goal, a goal which they push and raise in Knesset, even if the bill fails again and again,” she says and recalls the days when she passed the Golan Heights bill and the Jerusalem bill. Then too the bill passed after failing and being rejected and waiting for the right time. “The infrastructure must be prepared and then the matter must be raised on the agenda every single day, because you never know when it’s this bill’s day or that. When I tried to raise the Jerusalem bill I went from MK to MK to prepare for the political moment. As long as there are leaders like Yehudit Katsover and Nadia Matar the matter won’t come off the agenda. They stand guard and I see them looking for the historical crack in order to raise the matter on the agenda.

We've had a personal relationship with Geula and her family for well over forty years, so I wouldn't feel comfortable writing all of this without being honest about it.  I know for sure, as a fact that she is totally honest and sincere about her feelings for the Land and State of Israel.  I feel safe trusting her and am rather insecure and unsure of the present generation of MK's.

I find it very interesting that just about the only journalists (with only one exception I can think of) whom I can trust and agree with are women.  All of the popular psychology comparing men and women usually concentrate on how the differences impact on relationships, but I see that difference in politics.  There are women such as Ruth and Nadia Matar, Caroline Glick, Ruthie Blum, Arlene Kushner and Ellen Horowitz whom I agree with and look up to.  When the "maternal instinct" latches onto the Land of Israel and the Jewish Religion-People there's a very special power.

It's almost Shabbat, and I just want to leave you with an excerpt of Caroline Glick's latest article
On Sunday, PLO officials leaked to the media a position paper that Palestinian chief negotiator Saeb Erekat presented to Justice Minister Tzipi Livni outlining the PLO’s position on a finalpeace settlement. In a nutshell, the paper requires Israel to destroy itself demographically, democratically, militarily, legally and politically and that it relinquish its water supply. Six months after it does all these things, the Palestinians will agree to sign a peace treaty with it.
The Palestinian document claims not only all of Judea and Samaria, (except for 1.9 percent of the territory that Israel can keep in exchange for money and more land within sovereign Israel), and eastern, northern and southern Jerusalem. It demands the northern Negev, the Hula Valley, Latrun and the Elah Valley. And it demands them all free of all Jewish presence.
They demand that Israel relinquish its rights under international law to Judea, Samaria and Jerusalem by agreeing that they are “occupied.”
They demand full control over the airspace over Judea, Samaria, Gaza and Jerusalem, and over the waters off the Gaza coast. They demand an end of air force overflights of those areas.
They demand control over all the underground aquifiers, and over the electromagnetic spectrum.
Moreover, the Palestinians are demanding that Israel allow 5 million foreign-born Arabs the right to freely immigrate to its remaining territory.
They refuse to accept Israel’s right to exist and claim they have sovereign rights over all of Israel.
The Palestinian document reveals that there is no chance whatsoever that the current negotiations will lead to peace. PLO chief Mahmoud Abbas and his cronies don’t want peace. They want to destroy Israel.
And yet, to demonstrate Israel’s good faith with the cause of peace, and genuine devotion to the goal of appeasing Abbas, on Sunday the cabinet approved the release of another 26 Palestinian murderers from its jails. On Tuesday night, Abbas threw them a party in Ramallah and pledged that he would force Israel to release all Palestinian terrorists from its prisons.
The Arabs feel confident making these demands, because we Israelis haven't asserted sovereignty.

  • We won't have peace unless we are sovereign in the entire Judea, Samaria and the Jordan Valley.
  • There won't be peace for the State of Israel if there is a Palestinian sic State.
  • There won't be a State of Israel if there's a Palestinian sic State.

Shabbat Shalom u'Mevorach 
  May You Have a Peaceful and Blessed Sabbath

This should be front page news and not on your blog Batya. Sadly, nobody wants to hear Geula Cohen (a true heroine) any more than they wanted to hear Adir Zik. I will share this Be'H motzei Shabbat as many non-frum people are 'friends' on FB and I don't want to cause p.c. activity. Thanks for a great blog post and once again telling it as it is!! YEMACH SHEMAM!

Why don't Judeans legally establish their own royal Kingdom, instead of relying on Israeli government? Back to basics means back to Hebron and emphasizing strict parameters of recognition, including all the theatrics that coronation entails. Y'all should know the drill by now: anoint, then ascend Saul's throne.

Netivotgirl, thanks
I wish

cc, What do you mean by "Judeans?" What you propose isn't doable. Small Jewish city-states won't survive in this day and age.
