We're told that "you can only make peace with enemies" which isn't true at all. You can only make peace with those who want to make peace. And the Arabs here who are supposed to be negotiating with us don't want don't want peace. They want us dead and gone.

Yesterday as I was cooking for the Simchat Torah Holiday and listening to the news on Israeli TV I heard one of the newscasters say what could be most politely called asinine, stupid, ridiculous statements. She was troubled and confused by the fact that the Palestinian sic leadership kept refusing to say the simple formula condemning the recent terror attacks which had resulted in the deaths of at least four innocent Jews.
"Why won't they condemn the terror attacks? Why do they keep refusing? What could be so difficult?" She kept cluelessly asking.All she wanted was for them to recite the "magic formula" so it would be easy to pretend that "they are just like us and want to live in peace." Basically she goes for the Catholic version of repentance rather than the Jewish one.
"Say your hail marys and next week you can confess and repent again."We're dealing with a very serious enemy, and no number of lukewarm "condemnations" or "hail marys" are going to change them into "peace partners." The latest bulletin from the Palestinian Media Watch make some good points:
Terrorist murderer's motivation echoes PA incitementThe Palestinian terrorist who stabbed two people to death on Saturday night in Jerusalem posted on his Facebook page his motivation to murder. Muhannad Halabi's words echo the hate and terror promotion of the PA leaders and show the direct connection between the murderer's actions and the PA leaders' incitement.About "peace," it's not up to Israel. Israel hasn't made war and isn't the initiator of violence and terrorism. The Arabs are the terrorists, violent murdering terrorists. One day, Gd willing they will change, and then there will be peace. Until then all we can do is defend ourselves and execute all Arab terrorists on the spot.
Palestinian terrorist Muhannad Halabi wrote:
"According to what I see, the third Intifada has begun.What is happening to the Al-Aqsa Mosque is what is happening to our holy places and the way of our Prophet [Muhammad] and what is happening to the women of Al-Aqsa and our mothers and sisters.I do not believe that the people will succumb to humiliation.The people will rise up (literally "make intifada"), it will indeed make intifada."[Facebook page of Muhannad Halabi, Oct. 2, 2015]The calls for Palestinians to act violently to "protect" and "defend" the Muslim holy sites have been led directly by Mahmoud Abbas himself, who blessed "every drop of blood that has been spilled for Jerusalem" and presented violence in "defense" of holy sites and against the Jews' "filthy feet" as a religious imperative: (continue reading)
