Taking Chunks Out of Israel
The surrounding 22 Arab countries of Israel are 640 times larger than tiny Israel yet they expect Israel to turn over all the West Bank, Gaza Strip, the Golan Heights and half of Jerusalem... territory they lost after they started the 1967 war! We've given up the Gaza Strip and look what it got us; constant shelling of rockets forcing our citizens to live under deadly conditions. The Arabs certainly wanted a piece, all right, not peace. In fact, they want all of Israel, as little as it is. It says so in their charter.
Israel is only 8,367 square miles, or 21,671 sq. Km, including the West Bank right now. Obama will be in power in a few days, and he has made it known that he wants to see a "Palestine" created out of the West Bank immediately. Israel is shrinking.
After saying for 2,000 years that never are we Jews to forget Jerusalem, the plan is to take over much of that beloved city and make it part of Palestine. No one seems to care that it is a Jewish city, and was the capitol of Israel from King David's day on. It is not a holy city to Arabs.
Hamas has made it known that they do not go for a state of "Palestine" alongside Israel. They will never go along with Fatah in this matter. It will be interesting to see how Obama forces them to accept and stop fighting Israel. Hillary Clinton is said to intend pursuing Syria as a friend and will pressure Israel to surrender the Golan Heights to them. The very fact that the Israeli town of Kiriat Shimona, the town where my favorite department store is, is only 3 miles from the base of the Golan Heights. Controlling that would give the Arabs an ideal spot to bomb Israel. That's why we have been holding on to it; for protection! Obama will speak from Damascus, Syria to strengthen US ties to the Muslim world.
The only help Israel is going to get is from itself. Though Livni's cabinet has thought that the USA was such a terrific friend, facts are not showing it. The USA abstaining on voting on Resolution 1860 when it could have voted no shows a shift in backing Israel. Livni selecting a woman, Shalev, who is not a professional diplomat, was not a good move. Both Livni and Olmert have been kidding themselves about USA's support. Rice has been pushing the USA to accept Iran as a nuclear power by wrongly going along with thinking that Iran ended its nuclear weapons program in 2003. They're chomping on the bit to attack Israel, as shown by their dastardly remarks about Israel. If they attack, it no doubt will be with atomic weaponry. The USA put the Hizbullah terrorists of Lebanon above importance of Israel. The US actually forbade Israel from attacking the Lebanese government targets because Rice wonted to believe that the pro-Western March 14 movement was in charge of Lebanon when they were actually governed by Hizbullah. Therefore, Israel did not win any fight with Lebanon. Now Hizbullah is in charge of southern Lebanon and has rebuilt its arsenals. The result is that the USA has given Lebanon money and guns. Perhaps that is what the "Palestinians" think will be coming their way, too.
