Those defeated Palestinian Arabs DID stay and, after the double shocks of losing to the infidel Jews yet being allowed to remain in the Land of Israel by those same Jews, they simply picked up where they left off and rekindled their dream of driving these Jews into the sea. Almost daily we see visions of the Jerusalem and Hebron Riots of 1920, 1929 and 1936-9. We see Israeli buses with bullet-proof glass and new roads going AROUND Israeli Arab villages. We see Israeli Arab Knesset Ministers praising Hezbullah, Hamas, al-Aqsa Brigade, Islamic Jihad and all the other Arab terrorist groups and voting for EVERYTHING that is bad for Israel's well-being! And those "grateful" Palestinian Arabs, who so appreciated your generous offer to have them stay put, cheered as Iraqi missiles sailed over them and dropped into Israel... although I imagine their excitement abated somewhat when it was learned that those missiles carried only conventional explosives! What a sight that was indeed, Moshe. The Jews huddled into bomb shelters with gas masks while the appreciative Arabs partied on their rooftops! Allah surely is Great!
Moshe, you became a hero. A hero to them, not to us! On the fourth day of the war, for twelve glorious hours, the Israeli flag waved proudly over the Temple Mount as confirmation of the miracle just experienced by the Jewish People. But you ordered the Israeli flag taken down and you simply and incredibly handed over the administration of the Temple Mount to the Arabs, with the Jews retaining only nominal sovereignty over the site. Extraordinary! In victory, we left our holiest place in the hands of our enemies!
The Temple Mount is in Jewish Hands????
Your typically arrogant Leftist approach might have worked with normal enemies but not with proud Arabs. All the stars and bars on your chest cannot compete with the flames of "liberation" in their hearts. Yes, we Jews have a right to our ancient homeland. Yes, our return and rebuilding of Israel also brought in large numbers of Arabs seeking opportunity and a higher standard of living. Yes, we tried to live peacefully along side them. Yes, we're shown the patience of Saints even after their most heinous crimes took thousands of us. But they don't care a whit about any of that. They really believe that we are thieves. They don't want to share anything. They want us out! THEY WANT US DEAD!
Given this fact, Israel had better stop appeasing this enemy. They have chosen to kill us and drive us from the Land of Israel... if not all at once, at least in stages. They won't play by our rules. It is now time to end this double suicide called "Oslo" and "Wye." It is time to retake the "West Bank" [Judea/Samaria] and retain control over all of Jerusalem. It is time to point them east toward Jordan, north toward Lebanon and Syria, south toward Egypt or straight down into the Hell from which they they came. It is time to tell the world that Jews will no longer "play fairly" with those who come to murder. If it means behaving like normal people, then so be it!
Dayan Was Not the Only Jewish Genius Who Failed to Appreciate the Intentions of His Enemy...
"Stop being afraid. There is no danger that these guns will be used against us. The purpose of this ammunition for the Palestinian police is to be used in their vigilant fight against the Hamas. They won't dream of using it against us, since they know very well that if they use these guns against us once, at that moment the Oslo Accord will be annulled and the IDF will return to all the places that have been given to them. The Oslo Accord, despite what the opposition claims, is not irrevocable." Yitzchak Rabin
"Guns Don't Kill, Only People Kill." Shimon (Shame-On) Peres on CNN when asked if he regretted arming the Arafat's "Palestinian Authority" with Israeli weapons.
Shimon Peres, the man who is more and more likely to go down in history book as as the only human in history who single-handedly destroyed his own country Lieutenant Colonel Shlomo Baum, of blessed memory, once described him... "Shimon Peres doesn't care if the entire state turns into a heap of ashes -- as long as he is standing at the top of the heap."
