Without Portfolio - Without Sense

This weekend the Olmert government approved the appointment of its first Arab cabinet minister. What a magnanimous and grown-up gesture.

Something to get the doves in every Western legislature fluttering their wings in adulation.

The reward was not long in coming.

Here are pictures of the tomb of our prophet Samuel and the ancient Jewish cemetery in Hebron both of which were ransacked and desecrated the same weekend.

Ghaleb Majadle was appointed Minister without Portfolio.

He may not have a portfolio, but his people clearly do.

That is to treat every act of humanity, magnanimity and trust as a sign of weakness and an invitation to kill and maim Jews everywhere and erase every vestige of Jewish existence in the Land of Israel.

We gave them land and rifles in Oslo and they repaid us with an Intifada.

We gave them autonomy and they repaid us with suicide bombers.

We released their terrorists and they sent them right back to kill again.

We vacated South Lebanon and they filled it with Iranian missiles.

We gave up our prize-winning tomato fields in Gaza and they planted Katyushas.

We handed $100 million to Abas only to see him kowtowing to Hamas’s supreme leader.

We shipped Abbas 2,000 automatic rifles, 20,000 ammunition clips and 2 million bullets across the Karni crossing only to hear him repeat the same incitement against Israel.

Einstein defined insanity as doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

With the help of the UN’s French peacekeepers, Hassan Nasrallah should easily be restocked with missiles and new human shields by this summer. When the new Iranian missiles start raining down, will our new Arab minister be welcome in the cabinet’s bunker?
