Israeli Sovereignty Trumps Trump

This was first posted on Israeli Blogger.

I am disgusted by the reports that building for Jews in Judea/Samaria will be temporarily  frozen until after United States President Donald Trump’s upcoming visit. As an Israeli I’m disgusted and embarrassed by the report.

Didn’t we just celebrate our 69th Israeli Independence Day?
Are we an independent sovereign state, or not?
If we are an independent sovereign state then we don’t need approval from any foreign ruler, nor do we need to worry about their feelings and opinions.
Yes, it’s that simple!
For the first twenty years after declaring our independence and before that, and previous to that while Nazis murdered millions of Jews and then the British refused the survivors permission to relocate/immigrate to the Holy Land, no country allied with us or defended us Jews. We were on our own!
And the truth is that we’re still on our own when it comes to international diplomacy. But we do have one ally, and that’s Gd Almighty.

  • Gd’s help enabled us to defeat the Arabs, who had been assisted by other Arab states and Great Britain in 1948-49.
  • Gd’s help enabled us to defeat Egypt, Syria and Jordan in 1967.
  • Gd’s help enabled us to defeat Egypt and Syria in 1973. Our dependence on American advice almost led to our defeat in the Yom Kippur War.
Israel does not owe any country for our existence, our survival. It is only through the grace of Gd that there is a State of Israel. And if we want the respect and support of American President Trump, then we must act like a strong, independent sovereign state, not a weak fawning nebbich.

He is just advertising his agenda. Glad you stood up finally. It has nothing to do with his religious interpretations fearing God based on the traditions of men.

Yes, in theory we are a sovereign nation but the reality is we are not as our actions dictate. I have stated to you on many occasions really what you are saying again here. Why would God even respect us when we don't stand up for what is given to us, how we have had miracle after miracle in the wars you mentioned, we cannot see it (the leadership anyways). Donald Trump, just like the Arabs, cannot stand weakness. We are despised, a laughing stock to the world how we cower. The galut mentality. Trump will force a deal upon us, now the Iranian proxy leader, Abbas, will gladly sign a peace deal. Netanyahu has backed us into a corner with either willfully or by playing politics. We will be in for the fight of our lives rather soon.

You can be sure that he is not in full control and the PTB will not allow him to implement all that he promised. People don't realize this truth when it has become so obvious and clear as crystal.

Batya, both of us are old enough to
understand "but no cigar", but how many
people in their 20s understand that,
especially if they are native-born Israelis?
