Gilad's War

Of how many people could it be said: “They saved the State of Israel”?

Gilad Shalit would certainly fit the bill.

His capture finally triggered an alarm and opened the eyes of his countrymen and leaders to the reality they have been consistently been denying for decades: that there can never be peace with those who control and exploit the Arabs of former Palestine.

Missiles are raining in on our people from a Southern Lebanon surrendered by Barak and from a Northern Gaza surrendered by Sharon.

Were it not for the capture of Gilad Shalit, this war would not have broken out for another 18 months by which time Kadima’s ‘peace partners’ would have opened the third missile barrage from newly 'disengaged' hills in Judea and Samaria.

Peace is an illusion - and an expensive one at that.

Israel must accept that it is destined to survive differently to other nations in that it must live in a state of permanent conflict with its neighbours. Nowhere is it stated more clearly than the Torah and Devarim 7:2 which reads:

And when the LORD thy God shall deliver them before thee; thou shalt smite them, and utterly destroy them; thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor show mercy unto them.
