Enough Talk

We will stay in Gaza … we won’t stay in Gaza.
Hamas should do this … Abbas must do that.
Peres says this, Ramon says that.
Yap yap yap … there is no shortage of talking heads from all branches of the government pontificating over the abduction and killing of our people.

Personally I have had a bellyful of what the politicians have had to offer. Like disengagement and the senseless eviction of thousands of Jewish families most of which still languish in temporary shelters still waiting to receive a penny in compensation.

Like the relaxing of border restraints and confidence-building measures for Abbas, which have been exploited for the importation of ever greater quantities of arms which will be ranged against our troops in the days ahead. And let’s not forget our own shipments of thousands of assault rifles to bolster Mr Abbas’s security.

Then there was the wholesale release of hundreds of terrorists, each one of which our soldiers will have risked their lives to capture. And allowing a 6-times lifer like Barghouti – who should be rotting in solitary - enough freedom to run a political campaign from his jail cell.

Like showing what a pluralistic liberal democracy we are by allowing Hamas to campaign for office in our own territory and appointing an Arab MK to sit on the Defense and Foreign Relations committee. What utter farce!

And for all of this, what have we got in return?
Less than zero.

Less than zero means going backwards.

Our people used to be able to walk the streets without fear of missiles falling out of the sky.
Parents used to have a reasonable expectation that their kids could roam freely in their country without fear of being kidnapped and torn to shreds by hate-crazed Islamic fanatics.

No longer.
These are the wages of appeasement and the price of living in denial.

Denial of the plain fact that these people have one single aim.
To kill as many Jews as they possibly can and to terrorise the rest into fleeing Israel.
That has always been their aim. Nothing less than total erasure of the Jewish state.
That is why Arafat turned down even Barak’s giveaway offer at Camp David.

You cannot keep throwing meat to a lion and expect it to turn into a vegetarian.

So let it stop right here.
Let the politicians finally shut up and let the army do what it knows best.
To bring back their boy – hopefully alive – and flatten the terror infrastructure along the way.
And to consign Hamas leaders Meshaal and Haniyeh to their heavenly virgins in the same bloodied state as Yassin and Rantisi before them.

That is the only message our ‘peace partners’ have ever understood.
