Dayenu- No More!

Golda Meir once said that she could forgive the Arabs for killing our children, but never forgive them for making us kill their children. While this statement may play well with bleeding-heart liberals, it should be profoundly disturbing to every self-respecting Jew. Why should we be able to forgive the Arabs for the murder of fellow Jews? It seems that we, having been victims for so long, prefer to be losers than victors and would rather the world cry crocodile tears for murdered Jews than for them to condemn a strong Israel.

Within the past day or two, 60 Kassam rockets have rained down on Sderot and the surrounding areas. 15 people have been injured and Roni Yahya, 47, father of 4, was killed. He is just one of the many casualties of the incessant Arab terrorist rocket fire on Sderot, and last week a young child lost his leg when a Kassam hit him when he was on the way to a store. Thousands upon thousands of rockets have rained down on Sderot and the people there live in a constant state of war.

It should be apparent to anybody who has eyes to see and ears to hear, that Sderot is at a critical situation. No sovereign country can tolerate a constant attack on its citizens by an enemy entity. And still, the Israeli government sits quietly and refuses to punish the perpetrators of these heinous attacks. Why? Why are some Jews so uncomfortable with the idea of force, of asserting ourselves instead of acting like poor shlemiels who will take terrorist attacks lying down? Our leaders are cowardly dhimmis who cannot take a stand for Jewish rights. The only solution now, despite its unpleasantness, is for return the Arab favour 'seven-fold', an eye for an eye. No Arab terrorist leader should be safe and Gaza's electricity should be immiediately cut off. Israel should begin a harsh campaign of pulverizing any site used as a base for rocket attacks and a clear message should be sent that such attacks will not be tolerated.

Israeli soldiers Gilead Shalit, Eldad Regev and Ehud Goldwasser, are still sitting in Hamas and Hizbullah captivity. An Israel governed by true Jewish values would never tolerate such an affront to its national pride and to the basic human rights of its soldiers. Close to 2 years after their capture, their whereabouts are still unknown. PM Olmert and his collaborators have their suffering on their hands, as well as all the Jewish blood spilled because they refuse to punish Arab terrorism.

Assertiveness and national pride are nothing to be ashamed of. We need not compromise and appease endlessly. Only a people mirred in self-doubt cannot proudly stand up for its own rights. Will we become the Jews of Silence once again? Israel must not be ashamed to unleash hell on the Arab terrorists and ensure that no more Jewish lives are lost. No more kaddish, no more yarzheits, no more teary obituaries. Like the great Rabbi Kahane said, I would prefer an Israel that is hated than an Auschwitz that the world loves. Let us take to heart G-d's promise to Joshua: "Be strong and of good courage; be not afraid neither be thou dismayed: For HaShem your G-d is with you wherever you go". Amen v'amen.

Regarding killing kuffar children, Muslims' primitive superstitious taboos against personal hygiene are killing English children in a Liverpool hospital.

The government here is a disgrace. That would be the very first word I would use to describe what's going on: תתבישו לכם

You know, during the last Lebanon war, I read lots of blogs by Israelis. Most were women, I guess there aren't that many Israeli blogs by men. Anyway, one recurrent theme was concern for the poor Lebanese. Having been in Lebanon in 1982-1983, I could have told them that was wasted effort. But I didn't want to be a jerk when they were under pressure. I did ask one lady why she worried so much about the Lebanese when Israeli troops were under fire. She said because the Lebanese were innocent victims. But they let Hezbollah and other terrorists operate on their territory, so tough luck for them as far as I can see. If I let robbers use my house as a base, and the cops blow my windows in, am I an innocent victim? There are some things about the way that those folks were thinking that I just cannot understand. And this was while the terrorists were literally raining rockets down on Israel.

"No sovereign country can tolerate a constant attack on its citizens..."

And what makes you think Israel didn't trade her sovereignty away?

"...the Israeli government sits quietly and refuses to punish the perpetrators of these heinous attacks. Why?"

Because the people in power are puppets (bought & paid for) and the real aim of this game is to deconstruct the Jewish State, wear the people down until they get up and leave willingly and save them the hassle and cost of "evacuating" us.

When you've understood this, then all becomes clear.

Great blog, btw. Thanks for making me aware of it.
