**** SCROLL DOWN FOR UPDATE ****
Kelo in the West Bank?
There was horrible violence against Jews in Israel, today, with hundreds seriously injured. But the violence was not at the hand of Islamic terrorists. It was at the hand of acting Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Ohlmert. He can write his political epitaph with their blood on his hands. He okayed the orders to beat and torture Israeli citizens in order to hand their land, their homes over to Islamic terrorists.
“With friends like this, who needs HAMAS?!”
That’s the feeling of Israelis and others around the world who watched today’s brutal attack by Israeli soldiers on fellow Israelis, including Members of Israel’s Parliament–the Knesset. One of them, Knesset Member and Brigadier General Effie Eitam–sustaining head injuries, including a skull fracture and concussion–was rushed to the same neurosurgery unit where vegetative Ariel Sharon (who started this whole mess) is now comatose.
Women were attacked and beaten, and hundreds of Israelis in Amona were brutally injured by metal clubs, including one of my heroes, Aryeh Eldad, a Member of Knesset and medical doctor (who is one of the strongest advocates against the phony “land-for-peace” Israeli retreat; yet treats Palestinian wound victims and nurses them to heath). Eldad had his hand fractureda and was knocked unconscious, today, by Israeli police. The violence was so bad that several Israeli soldiers resigned their commissions, today.
Can you imagine American police beating Americans to get them to give their homes to Muslim terrorists and terror-supporters, say Al-Qaeda? That’s what happened, today, in Israel. Just last week, the Palestinians show, yet again, what they want, what they think, and what they mean when they elected HAMAS–hardly a suprise, despite what Condoleeza Rice and others fertilize. But the dovish Israeli government still doesn’t get it.
You don’t brutalize your law-abiding citizens to help terrorists. Not here in America. Not there in Israel. It is a sign of weakness, not strength. And it will NEVER bring peace. Only catastrophe.
A nation turned on itself today. So the terrorists don’t have to.
