When, in a democratic society the prime minister of the country and his cabinet take actions that are not democratic and are wrong and they hide all the reasons for their wrong actions they lose the trust and support of the public that elected them. This is what Prime Minister Netanyahu did this week, has lost the trust and support of the public. He lost mine!
I do not see any reason to have released 104 arch terrorists in return for a dubious privilege to have the humiliating right to come to Washington and speak with terrorists in suits who do not want to have any peace with you but pieces of you.
I do not see any reason to come, and mind you from a weak position, to the talks after complying with pre-conditions you swore, over and over, you will not agree to.
I do not see any reason to make concession and receive nothing back but a smirk of, “you see, we have the upper hand.”
I do not see any reason to even think of establishing another Arab state on Israel’s doorstep, or its living room.
Israel to arrive to talk “peace” with the Arabs when the PA TV, owned by the PA, has the gumption to come out with a song that calls to attack Israel, the “snake’s head,” with the rifle…”With the rifle we will impose our new life…Oh Palestinians, I want to go… and with you attack the snake’s head…”
How can Israel’s leadership even fathom they can achieve anything, never mind peace, with these duplicitous hating and wanting to kill Jews mongers, is beyond my comprehension? http://palwatch.org/main.aspx?fi=157&doc_id=9413
Just like the disengagement from Gush Katif war wrong, and the ten months construction freeze was wrong, in short time it will be made clear to Israel that freeing terrorists, once again, will not bring Israel anything except for sure worsening the Jewish state’s situation in the region, and in the international community. And then what will Netanyahu and his cabinet members say? Sorry? Sorry does not repair the wrong done that could have been avoided if it was thought through well.
In the past, Israel freed terrorists in exchange for soldiers, live or dead. Now Israel is going to free 104 arch terrorists in exchange for a vapid word, a dubious process, from which the Arabs can walk out anytime they do not get their way. Israel is come to the talk from a weak and frightened position acting as a shtetl in the beltway of the USA. More dangerous, Prime Minister Netanyahu and his groupies are teaching the world that Jewish blood is hefker and everything in Israel is for sale.
Benjamin Netanyahu is about to prove to the world that the Jews are Untermenschen – sub-human whose lives are worthless and hefker and whose murder does not count and has no consequences … Netanyahu’s summer wholesale sale of releasing 104 mass murderers for a Kodak moment is unwise. The United States does not release terrorist mass murderers of Americans because the United States considers the lives of Americans to have value. Benjamin Netanyahu and his friends on the Israeli Left want those who murder Jews to be proclaimed great heroes, to serve as role models to their people, to demonstrate that murdering Jews is ethical and admirable.
The more we think about what is taking place and the more we remember what Israel has been through the more we are convinced that Benjamin Netanyahu is navigating the state of Israel ship in the wrong direction towards an explosive iceberg.
Netanyahu appears to be a prime minister NOT to be trusted! No matter what promises he has received from the USA, we already know they are false and are not in the interest of Israel, made by clueless, feckless American politicians who do not have Israel’s interests at heart and will not be there when the war will break, which undoubtedly it will. The past should have taught Israel a lesson but apparently Netanyahu missed the class.
Netanyahu MUST be stopped before Israel becomes a wreck. We must re-amass our national honor!
So you know Mr. Netanyahu, tilting towards Obama is a big stinking red herring – and it is as passe as it is ineffectual. You are one of the principal architects in this process; you are not taking orders, rather you are a willing accomplice inside the sting.
The battle for Israel has begun and you, Mr. Netanyahu is the sine qua non.
Israel, you must change course, stop wasting time and energy on the man in the White House.
Or, before we know, it is going to be too late for the Jewish state and the heart and soul of the Jewish people.
Shame on Benjamine Netanyhau, Yuval Steinitz, Moshe Ya’alon, Gideon Sa’ar, Yair Lapid, Yael German, Yaakov Peri, Shai Piron, Meir Cohen, Sofa Landver, Yitzchak Aharonovitch, Tzipi Livni and Amir Peretz.
Kol hakavod to Gilad Erdan, Yisrael Katz, Naftali Bennett, Uri Ariel, Uri Orbach, Yair Shamir and Uzi Landau for standing what is right.
