Don't Ask Me to Be a Nice Jewish Boy - the whole piece

I originally posted exerpts of this piece. But it's so good, I had to put up the whole thing. You've got to read it. ... And email it to freinds... if you feel like it.

Don't Ask Me to Be a Nice Jewish Boy - Part 2


Here are a few things I am sick and tired of:

1. I am sick and tired of the slowly escalating actions of the IDF to fight terrorism.

The slow escalation allows PA terrorism to become immune to Israel's strategy. It allows them to smuggle more guns, missiles, mortars and anti-aircraft missiles into PA territory. This is much the same as bacterial infections. If the antibiotic is not strong enough to eliminate it, then the disease will return in a much more virulent form. I would suggest that the IDF launch a massive offensive against the terrorists until victory.

2. I am sick and tired of the Israeli government's fear of collateral damage to the enemy.

The Arabs have no such qualms. In fact they target civilians in bestial suicide bombs. PA weapons factories, weapons storage depots and bomb-making facilities should be blasted off the face of earth, even if it causes civilian casualties. Remember that "he who is merciful to the cruel, will end up being cruel to the merciful."

3. I am sick and tired of Israeli Prime Minister Sharon's policy of restraint.

The adjustment to accepting the killing of Jews is an abomination. A Jew here or there murdered daily, pretty soon adds up to a lot of dead and maimed Jews. When the "Al-Aska" terror on Israel began last September, the IDF General Staff planned to re-opened a file called "Operation Thorns", which was a plan to re-take the PA areas. They estimated Israeli dead at 300. Since then, there have been more than 1000 Jews killed, which is more than three times the estimated combat deaths - with no apparent consequence to the PA's ability to inflict casualties on Israel. There is now one extremely important variable. The PA has used the last few years to build bunkers, firing positions, smuggle in heavy weapons and missiles, create an underground arms industry and organize an army of 80,000. The defeat of the PA now would certainly be more costly. And it will grow with time. There is a very short window of time to defeat the PA terrorists with minimal losses. Many political analysts and military experts agree that Israel must take decisive action now.

4. I am sick and tired of the US State Department urging Israel to show "restraint".

Despite the fact that the CIA knows exactly who (PA) is attacking whom (Israel), the State Department continues call for a stop to the "cycle of violence". Whenever Israel is attacked viciously, there is rush to tell Israel "to turn the other cheek."

5. I am sick and tired of Shimon Peres trying to arrange another appeasement for the PA.

He claims to be seeking a return to negotiations. Let me be honest with you. I don't want negotiations with Mahmoud Abbas, I want Israel to crush him and his terrorist gang.

6. I am sick and tired of the continued UN presence within the borders of Israel.

It's time to remove them and assert Israel's sovereignty. Israel should work to have the world withdraw its recognition of UN-supported Arab refugee camps and refugees. It should condemn the hypocritical treatment of the Arab countries for exploiting these people for political purposes. Israel should declare in a strong voice that there are no refugees. That status is not permanent and obviously should not apply to people living in the same place for 56 years.

7. I am sick and tired of the international boycott of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

Israel should unilaterally announce to the nations of the world that all embassies must be in Jerusalem. Consulates may be in Tel Aviv or any place they want. Israel will no longer permit its eternal capital to be disrespected.

8. I am sick and tired that under both Labor and Likud governments, Arutz Sheva, Israel National Radio has not been fully legalized.

Whatever happened to freedom of speech? Arutz Sheva should not only be allowed to establish facilities on land, but also to run a television channel. I am also sick and tired of government television being controlled by the extreme Left that doesn't represent the Israeli public. A lot of the time they represent the Arabs and not Israelis.

9. I am sick and tired of Israel's trying to be Mister Nice Guy to a hypocritical world.

Europeans are increasingly comparing Israel to the Nazis. Over half of all the resolutions of the UN since its founding have been directed against Israel. At the conference on how to condemn Israel in Durban, South Africa, UN head Kofi Annan condemned Israel for existing. The Arab world openly plots the destruction of Israel.

10. I am sick and tired of Israel tolerating Moslem restrictions and desecration on the Temple Mount.

The excuse that it would cause violence to exercise our rights there is absurd. Israel has the capability to enforce security. Virtually everything Israel wants do in the Land of Israel displeases the Arabs, who want us to leave. Jews should be allowed to pray on the Temple Mount and the destruction of Jewish antiquities by the Moslem Waqf needs to be stopped immediately.

11. I am sick and tired of PA demonstrations of the fierceness of their terrorists and how they will destroy Israel.

Why not knock off a bunch of them during their demonstrations? Maybe they will be more circumspect.

12. And most importantly, the IDF and police should never be used for political purposes. Their purpose is to protect Israelis and not expel them from their homes or persecute them.

I believe that we will defeat our current adversaries. We will succeed and survive from three sources of our strength: love of Tanach (Torah); love of Eretz Israel (the Land of Israel); and love of Am Yisrael (the People of Israel). In blood and fire was Israel born, and on a hot anvil was she forged. Her youth understood that life in the new Jewish homeland would require sacrifice. With stories of the stench of burning flesh from the ovens of Auschwitz embedded deep in their psyches, the young Israeli soldiers fight with the firm conviction that there is still no alternative - "ein breira."

To that I would like add something the American soldiers used to say during the heaviest fighting in Vietnam. This is dedicated (slightly revised) to the brave IDF soldiers who face the enemy every day: Yeah though I walk through the Valley of Death, I will fear no evil because the Almighty fights with me for the Restoration of Zion and for love of His people, Israel.

And for the Jews of Gaza, Judea and Samaria: I believe that He will not allow Jews to expel Jews from Eretz Yisrael.
