Condie should follow her own advice

Condie had some wonderful things to say about Israel in an interview with al-Hurrah TV, a Middle-Eastern station.
"I believe that Israel understands...that it has obligations that need to be met and need to be met now, because the future of Israel is not in the continued occupation of the West Bank. The future of Israel is in building a strong Israeli state in places like the Negev and Galilee." Hmmm... Why is that, it might ask? Is it because Arabs outnumber Jews in Judea and Samaria and as such it is not right for Israel to rule against their will? Fine, let them leave! Condie should know that the Galilee is majority Arab and the Negev, with the huge Bedouin birthrate, could be going that way soon. How about we leave those places too? And Jerusalem, there Arabs are busy building illegal houses in an attempt to beat the Jews demographically. Maybe we should give that away too? By that same logic, we should end the whole Zionist enterprise as there are 6 million Jews in a sea of over a 100 million Arabs.
Condie, look to the US. The Southwest is beginning to resemble Mexico. The US should give that back and stop its continued occupation of New Mexico, California... Oh no, I forgot, standards only apply to Israel.
I also do seem to recall President Bush saying that he would not retreat from Iraq because that would only serve to encourage the terrorists. Here are his words from a 2005 speech:
"The terrorists concluded we lacked the courage and character to defend ourselves. The only way the terrorists can win is if we lose our nerve and abandon the mission... For the safety and security of the American people, that's not going to happen on my watch."

"If we fail that test, the consequences for the safety and security of the American people would be enormous," the president said. "Our withdrawal from Iraq would allow the terrorists to claim an historic victory over the United States."

So if the US retreats from Iraq, it will be a defeat but if Israel gives the Arabs control of its biblical homeland, Judea and Samaria, that would be a victory? That didn't seem to go so well when Israel gave up Gaza- just ask the people of Sderot.
Condie is mistaken when she assumes that a strong Israel is possible without Judea and Samaria. Abba Eban referred to the indefensible pre-'67 borders as the Auschwitz lines. For its own security, Israel cannot give up Judea and Samaria.
What makes Condie think that the new Palestinian state will be pro-US and won't end up like every other repressive totalitarian backwards Muslim country. Tigers don't change their stripes; Palestine, Hashem have mercy, will be a terrorist state, financing and supporting Jihad attacks on Israel, the US and the West. Rememeber how the Palestinians danced at 9/11?
Condie, don't apply a double-standard to Israel. Follow your own advice.

Dr. Rice has let me/us down in so many ways, she is a brilliant woman in the wrong spot in tima and history will not be kind to her. Dang and she is such a gifted wonderful, gorgeous lady. John Bolton would have been better suited,to bad he never would have been confirmed.

I used your Bush quote to put up on my sidebar as a reminder of what the president's policy was in 2005.

Chhers, Bar-K!
