As the government of Israel considers releasing palestinian terrorists it holds within its prisons in exchange for the release of Gilad Shalit, I urge the world to consider what happens when you negotiate with evil:
These are the faces of 177 Jews, all of whom were murdered by palestinian terrorists after the terrorists were released from Israeli prisons. When you consider what we know the aftermath will be, should Israel release more terrorists to obtain the freedom of Gilad Shalit?
Well, consider that we know the Israeli left will release those terrorists eventually anyway, as they have in the past, for the stupid, ineffective and meaningless negotiations with terrorists who want only to kill us. They have before, and they will again.
Gilad Shalit is only one life. But perhaps Gilad Shalit is the one Jewish life that can be saved.
Still, the terrorists will continue to kill us no matter what we do.
And… this exchange will surely encourage more kidnappings of more Israeli soldiers.
But then, there would likely be more kidnappings anyway.
I look at those faces, and I want to cry.
I could argue with myself all day about such things, one Jew, three opinions.
My solution? I would take the list of prisoners the palestinians want released, and I would execute one a day, until Gilad Shalit is released, or I run out of prisoners.
That way, the end result is a good one, either way.
But, that’s just me.
“The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity. In reality today there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a Palestinian people, since Arab national interests demand that we posit the existence of a distinct ‘Palestinian people’ to oppose Zionism.” — PLO executive committee member Zahir Muhsein, 1977
What the heck, let’s give them a state, it will bring peace, right?
According to the most senior Hamas member in Gaza, Mahmoud al Zahar, the arabs are getting Gaza because their terrorism campaign is successful:
“Two years ago, Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon described the Gaza Strip settlement of Netzarim as a vital part of Israel’s national security and now he is going to leave.” That is because of the “effective armed struggle.”
According to the most senior Hamas member in Gaza, Mahmoud al Zahar, its time for step two:
Zahar said the process needs to continue — until Jews also leave the entire West Bank and all of Israel.
“They are going to leave [Gaza], not because this is a gift from Israel. This is because they failed to confront our people, so don’t describe their withdrawal from here…as a gift for the Palestinians,” Zahar said in an interview at his home in Gaza. “This is because they are defeated here.”
Hamas will never recognize the existence of a Jewish State in the region, said Zahar.
Is anyone listening?
