All this Intifada, Dirty Schmatta business is a bunch of poppycock to be honest. The politicians, diplomats, media and military big shots are afraid of the truth. They don't want to admit that we Israelis are being attacked by an enemy that wants to destroy our country. The truth is that we are at war, but we're not fighting back. We are not trying to defeat our Arab enemies who are growing stronger and more internationally people all the time. We're using "cold cream" on skin cancer, perfum on gangrene.
I am embarrassed and scared, too. At least I can say that I didn't vote Likud! But my dinky little blog here doesn't have a chance in hell to change Israeli policy. Does it?
I strongly believe that it's the fear, yes, fear of a "Palestinian State" that is causing Israeli Arabs and those in Judea and Samaria to get violent. I firmly believe that the vast majority do not want to live in an Arab state. The truth is that they feel happier and safer and more secure in the democratic and just State of Israel that they'd be in an Arab country, especially the new one that is being promoted by pretty much every country in the world including Israel!

So, what do I propose? OK, it's a two pronged platform:
- First of all, and this is possibly most difficult, Israel--Right, Left and Center-- must cease its support for the "Two State Solution" aka a Palestinian State. As part of this, the powers of the PA-Palestinian Authority must be reduced to zero. Step one is the declaration of full Israeli Sovereignty on all of the Land we hold from the Mediterranean Sea to the Jordan River. Israeli citizenship will not be granted automatically. There must be a process like in many western countries which involves accepting laws and swearing allegiance to the state. And of course Jewish communities will be allowed to grow and built and multiply. The State of Israel must make it clear to all that this is our Land and we are not giving it away.
- Acts of terror against Israelis will be prosecuted strongly, and all Arabs who attempt to murder Jews must be executed. Foreign agents for NGO's, UN etc. who encourage any sort of actions against Israel's sovereignty are to be deported and declared persona non grata. Zero tolerance for terror against Jews means just that. Parents of underage terrorists will also be declared legally responsible. Not only will this stop terrorism, but it will stop the Jewish retaliations.
