PalArabs' violence against Jews has increased and some already call it the 3rd intifada.
If Israel will continue sitting idle we are looking at bloodshed again, this time worse than ever.
As far as I am concerned I will do a population transfer in a heartbeat. Ship all the Arabs to an Arab country of their choice; they have no room to live in Israel, unless they begin thinking co-existence and ecumenism.
Pointing fingers at the Europeans who are funding organizations that work to undermine Israel and blaming them for being anti-Semites, which they are, will not stop what is evolving all around Israel and within.
Saying that the time is not right for peace agreement because the region is aflame, is the wrong mantra, it is a silly excuse. There should never have been peace talks with the Arabs because the Palestinian Authority and its president Abbas' ideology and narrative is incitement that calls for violence against Israel. Such mindset is the only reason Israel should have never agreed to peace talks, not then, not now. The excuse is not that the Islamists are taking over the region and destabilizing it, the excuse is their goal to destroy Israel.
There are things we should be saying and we don't. The world has silenced the government of Israel and it is fearing to speak up.
As a result, many individuals in Israel turned to be a freelancer speakers; whoever has a microphone, or a pen, voices his or her opinion. People in Israel say what is on their mind, they are not that infected by the Political Correctness disease.
Those in Israel, with their hearts and minds in the right place, who have an international platform, speak up on issues but they are not saying the right things that will advance Israel's cause.
We need to help them to get the narrative right so they say the right things and yield results.
A person like Avigdor Lieberman, who is now awaiting trial gets quoted all the time; he should be saying, non-stop, 'the Palestinian Authority and Abu-Mazen-Abbas's media incites, non-stop, to hate, commit terror against and deny Israel's right to exist, that includes Abbas media that is directed at children, the next generation of peace makers and keepers'.
The result of not speaking up and taking harsh measures, there has been a huge spike of violence of PA Arabs against Jews. The PA demonstrate daily it is not interested in living side by side in peace with Israel. They MUST change their narrative to an ecumenical one before Israel can take them seriously.
The PA must come with a decree, in Arabic, to end all violence against Jews NOW, to be heard in its media, including in programs that are directed at children and older youth.
People in Lieberman's echelon must be saying this mantra ad nauseam. This must be their handy dandy answer to EVERY question and remark that touches the subject of "peace" without going off on tangent. As often as the Left say Israel is an "apartheid state" we need to hear the Lieberman like saying the PA/Abbas is racist and ethnically cleansing minded people.
Abbas must be called a stealth jihadist, a terrorist wearing a tailored suit as a disguise. That must be said over and over and again.
The time has come to delegitimize the PA/Abbas just as they have been delegitimizing Israel. But no one in Israel is doing the delegitimization while the PalArabs are constantly undermining, demonizing and delegitimizing Israel. No wonder Netanyahu is afraid to adopt the Levy Report; no wonder he is afraid to get serious about building in Jerusalem, even though housing prices in Israel became too high and with more supply, to satisfy the demand, the prices will go down.
Without delegitimize the PA/Abbas Israel is dead in the water; it is losing the battle. That is why Israel has always been victorious in the battle but never won a war.
Now that Tzipi Livni has been given the chance to go at the "peace process" without having the "flexibility" Ehud Olmert had, what will she accomplish under the circumstances? Will Israelis stand for giving up any part of Jerusalem now? She knows they will not. With Livni in, maybe Bennett will finally split from Lapid and Netanyahu can leave Lapid out of the coalition. I believe if Bennett does not enter the coalition soon he will not head of his party for much longer. Once Bennett is in, if he wants to counter Livni's inherent Chemberlainesque instincts and if he ever wants Israel to adopt the Levy report, he better also start publically exposing the PA/Abbas for what it really is - in their own words – the uptick rise in PA/Arab violence that is caused by their hate for Jews' ideology and incitement.
We can be assured that calling the EU anti-Semitic will not do the job. When people complain about "settlements" being illegal, the answer is they are legal, under jurisprudence, and give a couple of legal examples, do not let it pass. We must all find a couple of talking points, stick to them and keep repeating them until everyone gets it. Everyone! AND, of course the problem is not the "settlements", it is the PA/Abbas and all the rest of the Arabs and no one else.
