Dayenu? Is The "Deal" Talks Danger Over?

Are we safe?
Has the American Secretary of State Kerry's high-pressured "deal" talks really been taken off the table?
Can we say "dayenu," we tried, isn't it enough already?
Recent news is that Prime Minister Netanyahu doesn't have full cabinet backing to continue the American mediated pressured peace deal talks with the Arabs. Does that mean that U.S. President Obama and his side-kick Kerry have given up and will take on other "projects?"
Hmm, count them. "Four questions." No surprise, since it's Passover, the holiday that requires us to ask, to think. And I have been thinking a lot about this issue.
Efforts to reach an agreement between Israel and the Palestinians on extending talks hit a snag on Thursday when Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu lost his majority for such a deal......“If Abu Mazen [Abbas] does not condemn the attack fiercely in Arabic, there is no point in continuing the talks,” said Aharonovitch, whose vote would be crucial to pass the deal.
Multiple Likud ministers are said to be wavering over whether to support the deal. A group of Likud mayors in Judea and Samaria wrote the party’s ministers on Thursday urging them to oppose the agreement.
“We call upon you to declare that more murderers and terrorists will not be freed and there will be no more talks with the Palestinian Authority, which has proven that it supports, organizes and funds terrorism,” the mayors wrote the ministers in a letter.
Bayit Yehudi chairman Naftali Bennett has threatened to remove his party from Netanyahu’s coalition if Israeli- Arab prisoners are released in the deal. (Jerusalem Post)
The United States is the modern Egyptian Pharaoh. And at present we Israelis are acting as slaves.
עֲבָדִים הָיִינוּ לְפַרְעֹה בְּמִצְרָיִם
Avodim hayinu liparoh bemitzrayimWe were slaves to Pharaoh in Egypt
It won't stop until the Israeli Government says unanimously that the United States of America isn't our god.

Simply put:
The danger is not yet over!

I've said before Jewish freedom remains only a dream - a still unrealizable ideal.

Israel iindeed a slave to the modern Pharaoh in the White House. It degrades itself by begging an anti-Semite to give it lip service so it can continue to surrender more Jewish land to him.

We are not by any means out of danger yet. The last proud Jew was Rav Kahane, zt'l. He was spared the sight of what the Jewish nation has now become.

Jews shame G-d and their ancestors and make a mockery out of the Seder service by still acting as slaves! Israel has yet to truly leave Egypt and witness the miracle at Sinai.
