It’s so embarrassing and demeaning to keep hearing our Prime Minister and politicians begging.
- They beg our sworn enemies to “make a peace deal.”
- They beg foreign leaders, like US President Trump, to recognize Jerusalem.
- They beg foreign leaders, like US President Trump, to help negotiate a “peace deal.”
I think we’d get a lot more respect and peace, too, if only we would act with strength and self-respect. For sure, the begging only makes the Arabs see us as weak, and that encourages them to attack more and compromise less. And foreign leaders see us as less deserving. They certainly think less of our rights to our Land and Capital City Jerusalem when we keep offering to give pieces away.
Of course it’s like the King Solomon story of the two women who were fighting over the baby. King Solomon believed the woman who wasn’t willing to harm the baby.
Our enemies aren’t afraid of us, and that’s a problem.
Fifty years ago, as the totally miraculous Six Days War ended we did have a chance for peace. The Arabs saw that our victory was by Gd, and they were terrified. If we had acted like victors we’d not only have peace today, but we’d be in Messianic Times.
Instead, successive Israeli Governments have just gotten us into bigger and bigger trouble by trying to please foreign rulers who wouldn’t care if the Arabs destroyed the State of Israel, Gd forbid, and we’d find ourselves exiled yet, again. Gd keeps on giving us more chances, but there’s a limit to Gd’s mercy. He may decide, yet again, to wait for a more deserving generation.
