Israel is being hanged on a public gallows erected on the grounds of the
United Nations with yards of rope gleefully supplied by the Muslim
world. But the hangmen are mostly Westerners who still think that the
Muslim lynch mob at their doorstep can be pacified with the death of a
are three things you can do when you are about to be hanged. You can
walk proudly, recite a glorious line or two to embed your martyrdom in
historical memory, and then allow yourself to be hanged. Jews have an
extensive body of experience with that brand of martyrdom.
you can plead your case all the way to the gallows, arguing that a
mistake has been made, that your case has been improperly reviewed,
begging for someone to listen and do something. This way also ends in a
hanging. But it's the hanging of a slave without even a shred of dignity
attached to it. A man that dies pleading with his murderers, and puts
his fate in the honesty of the liars and hypocrites whose own crimes
makes the worst of his look like virtues, is a craven fool.
there is really only one thing you can do when the noose is being
placed around your neck. Resist. A noose works by tightening around your
neck and cutting off your air or breaking your neck. If you resist the
tightening of the noose, you may actually survive. On the other hand if
you follow through all the procedures, if you allow your hands to be
tied behind your back, and the noose to be fastened around your neck
while trusting in the system to do right by you-- your death is
For two decades Israel has been walking toward the
gallows. Its leaders have led it there by empty international
assurances. Its people have been led there by refusing to see what is
waiting ahead for them, even while the blood was being cleaned off the
Every attempt to reach a peaceful solution, every
concession and show of good faith, has only tightened the bonds around
its hands and the noose around its neck.
Every concession Israel
has made, has further restricted not only its ability to defend itself,
but even its ability to do basic things such as build residential
housing in the capital of its own nation. Every gesture and agreement
Israel has signed has bound it to ever more restrictive terms. And none
of them have brought any peace. All they have ever done is set the bar
higher for the next round of concessions demanded by the enemy and its
aiders and abettors in the next phase of negotiations.
not a peace process, and it has never been one. It is a public lynching.
It is the lynching of a country whose only real crime is that its
existence offends the religious fanaticism and prejudices of a billion
Muslims, who control much of the world's oil, and whose followers are
willing to riot and kill in the streets of nearly every major city in
the world at the slightest offense.
The lynching began as a trial
where the murderer wore a fine suit and his victim sat in an orange
jumpsuit in the dock. Every day during the trial, the murderer would be
allowed to leave the courtroom to kill again. And every afternoon he
would return to the courtroom with bloody hands that the judge and
jurors would pretend not to see.
If the victim called attention
to those bloody hands, he would be told that those murders were also his
fault because he had provoked the murderer into committing them.
endgame is all too clear. The undoing of that "mistake" which allowed
the oldest and most persecuted minority in the Middle East to briefly
reclaim their homeland from the tyranny of Muslim Caliphs and Sultans as
a homeland for their persecuted brethren from the east and the west.
time Israel tries to be accommodating, it instead takes a step closer
to the gallows. It allows the noose to be tightened around its neck. And
every time that happens, it has to fight harder for air.
Eventually there will be no air at all. Only a sad forlorn figure swinging in the hot eastern wind from the desert.
And cries of Ibtach al Yahood among the rubble of cities and gardens of Jerusalem, Haifa, Tel Aviv and Ariel.
cannot survive by accommodating a lynch mob. Only by having the courage
to defy it. When the international community at the behest of the
Muslim lynch mob dictates the parameters of Israel's survival, it must
expand those parameters by pushing through them to the other side. If
they want to recognize terrorists, then kill those terrorists. If they
want to unilaterally create a Palestinian state, then annex those
territories. Accommodation is a noose. Defiance is the air of freedom.
Every time Israel retreats, it is condemned for it. When it advances, it
is condemned for it also, but its freedom of action expands.
world will always condemn Israel regardless of its intentions. But like
any form of name-calling, those condemnations only gain power when
Israel allows its actions to be dictated by them. Israel is not
condemned because of what Israel does. It is condemned because of
Islamic bigotry, left wing radicalism and international dhimmism
converging in one place.
This is a pattern that cannot be undone. It can only be ignored.
you listen to the threats and taunts of those who hate you, you give
them power over yourself. If you try to accommodate your behavior to
gain their favor, their outpouring of hate for you will only grow. It is
not your behavior they hate, it is you. By showing weakness, you invite
attack. By giving your enemies power over you, all that you accomplish
is to drive them into a feeding frenzy at your vulnerability.
you go on this way, you will either be a slave or a corpse. A slave if
they have any use for you alive. A corpse if they don't. Either way you
have put your head into the noose they made for you.
cannot go on this way. No country could for long. Yet it does, marching
on toward the gallows, protesting that there has been a terrible mistake
here. But there is no mistake here. None at all. The executioners nod
sympathetically and promise to look into it, as they bind his hands
behind his back. It's a farce and everyone, except the dumbest among the
lynch mob and the condemned, knows it.
But like the condemned
man refusing a blindfold in the anecdote who's scheduled to be executed,
Israel keeps being warned not to make trouble. Go quietly. Breathe
deeply. Soon it will all be over. What will the world say, if Israel
resists? Exactly what the world says now. The troublemakers that are
the cause of all the troubles of the otherwise peaceful nations of the
Middle East. The worm in the lovely healthy apple otherwise covered with
Every threat that has been made has come about
when Israel made concessions, not because it refused to. Every time
Israel has chosen the high road, its enemies have ambushed it from the
low road. It's past time to wake up and start learning some lessons. The
noose is drawn. And the nation is gasping for air. That breath of air
was Jerusalem. The next one will be the Galilee. And then what? How many
more breaths are left after that?
Before Oslo, Israel was
threatened with terror if it did not comply. It complied and the terror
increased manifold. And if did not negotiate further, it was threatened
with international isolation. It negotiated. It gave. And it was
isolated anyway. It was threatened with boycotts, and it gave, and the
boycotts came anyway. Now they threaten the unilateral recognition of a
Palestinian state. Followed by a One State Solution. Followed by
international intervention. Noose, gallows and all.
anyone think that all these will not come about anyway if Israel gives
Abbas and his terrorist cronies their own official state with a capital
No compromise has worked until now. Which means no
compromise will work. A process in which one side repeatedly compromises
and the other side repeatedly threatens and takes, is not a process,
but a holdup. If a man threatens you with a gun, then you might think
that you can buy him off. Until he returns again and again. And then it
is no longer a threat, it is a process. Israel is in that process, or
rather it is being processed. At the end of the process is death. If you
pay attention only to the gun, and not the pattern of threats, you may
keep giving in, until you have given up your home, your wife and your
children, and you have nothing left but your life. And then you will
lose that as well. That is the nature of the process. To survive, you
must not see the gun alone, but the process it is part of.
Israel withdrew from Gaza, allowed Hamas to control it, and did nothing
but prevent Hamas from having outside access, the world howled as if
Israel had filled the country with graves from end to end, as Sudan or
Iran or some of the other members and former members of the UN Human
Rights Commission have. Now that Israel sacrifices the lives of its
soldiers to minimize Muslim civilian casualties while Hamas does
everything to increase those casualties, the howling has become a din.
That is not justice. That is a lynch mob.
are no longer talking about negotiations. Or any serious discussion of a
state. We are talking about the world rising up in one voice to defend
the rights of a genocidal organization whose charter includes the words;
"The Day of Judgment will not come about until Muslims fight the Jews
(killing the Jews), when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The
stones and trees will say O Muslims, O Abdullah, there is a Jew behind
me, come and kill him."
pretense is over and done with. This is not about anything resembling
peace. This is about death. This is a lynch mob. Some come willingly.
Others think that they have no choice. That a single murder will buy
them the tolerance of the Dar Al Islam.
This is what a noose
looks like. These are the gallows. As its hands are bound, Israel loses
the ability to defend itself. As the noose tightens, Israel dies. Only
by resisting the noose, can it survive. Only by fighting to free its
hands, can it resist.
The way of surrender is the way of death. And after Israel dies, its own hangmen will be next.
lynch mob has only begun. Its appetite is whetted by death. Its hunger
will only be sharpened, not sated, by blood. And it will cover the world
in blood, if it is not stopped. But now the noose draws tight. Only a
little more air is left.
What will Israel do with that air?
Appeal for justice, or fight with all its strength to rip the noose
away. For now the choice is still hers. When the noose has done it work,
it no longer will be.
