Eretz Yisrael Time

When I hear Gaza, I keep thinking Vietnam.

Not like an Israeli leftist who thinks that we are simply embroiling ourselves in an unwinnable war or their idiocy that we need yet even more negotiations, but because the Left and the establishment are embroiling us in a war they don’t want to win.

Israel has now returned to liberate the exact same Jewish towns that 1,500 Jews were expelled from just one year ago. Why? Because the reach of the Kassam missile has been extended. Because disengagement failed.

And that is exactly the problem. The Left and the Government want to hide behind imaginary walls rather than address the core issues. Kassams landing too close, just move them further away (up to a point at least).

Thousands of Jews were kicked out of their homes where before there had been nothing but empty sand dunes.

Thousands of Jews were kicked out of their homes to create an imaginary separation between us and them.

And now we are back, simply pushing forward to our old positions, without addressing the core problem.

And until we address it, the current Israeli solutions will continue to be imaginary walls that impede nothing.

The expulsion may have succeeded but disengagement clearly failed.

It’s time the Left opened their eyes and looked at some solutions coming from the other side of the spectrum.

1500 Jews? do you mean 1500 Jewish families or 8500 Jews?

Joe: This is your best line:

The expulsion may have succeeded but disengagement clearly failed.

I will use it in the future (gicing you full credit, of course ;-)

Rafi: Northern Gaza (the 3 towns) was the home to 1,500 Jews.

jameel: ...and disengagement failed in so many ways.

Joe,
you want the left to admit it made a mistake?? you better get in line, there is a long list of people wating to hear that.
Im still waiting for our Minister of Shmassam to apoligize for Oslo, that put in the Crappy sittuation we are today. But I am not holding my breath.

Screw waiting for the left to admit they committed a major sin, er, I mean, "made a mistake"; the Israeli people need to rise up and demand strong military action combined with new elections. Unfortunately, Israel is in the same boat as America when it comes to a complete lack of capable and competent leadership.

Can the blogosphere create their own Knesset, I wonder?

I wouldn't quite call it a liberation. There is no way Olmert would ever allow civilians to settle there a second time.

And as far as the northern buffer zone goes, I highly doubt that this will be a permanent deployment.
