Blessing in Disguise
An Open Letter to Any Prime Minister of Israel.
Our biggest blessing has been the sheer hatred and refusal of Arabs to recognize Israel. If they did, unaffiliated Jews would continue to surrender the full land with no self recognition of it's promise. Then there would be subsequent assimilation at a higher rate than America's catastrophy of 65%.
Our only problem and solution is our own government officials who lack Jewish belief. For if it was there, there would be no more bowing to Goyim in America, and a conclusive victorious end of terror by expelling the Arabs which God has requested we do in the Torah Parshat Masai. Learn, and Strengthen your Belief in God.

I disliked that video because of the overall message. In my opinion, this video made it seem as though the so called "Palestinians" are deserving of our repeated attempts to beg them to let us hand our yerushah, our precious Holy Land which is a gift from Hashem, to them on a silver platter! And all of this for some elusive "peace" which can never happen! How many times must history repeat itself over and over before we, ourselves "get" the message: The only thing these miserable excuses for human beings, who sacrifice their own children to their "cause", understand, and even honor , is brute strength! If this is meant to be a PR film for the Jewish Homeland it fails miserably! It makes it seem as though we must feel guilty about keeping this land which was bequeathed to us by HaKadosh Baruch Hu! How dare we even entertain the notion of giving our mortal enemies one square inch!

There are already two states in Mandated Palestine.
Thanks to the British giving over 75% of Mandated Palestine to the arabs, there are already two states in Palestine. Why should there be a third? The arabs should be repatriated back to the surrounding arab countries. After all Israel absorbed the Jews from the arab countries after Israel became a state again. Why can't Egypt, Jordan(the existing Palistian state), Syria, Lebenon, Saudi Arabia, and Iraq (the Mandated Arab Homeland, when Palestine was Mandated to be the Jewish National Homeland) take in thier follow arab brothern currently living within Israel's boarders. Yes, that includes Gaza, the "West Bank" and the Golan Heights,

No two state solution
Hate to sound cliche'ish but there really is no need for a two state solution. Excuse me-- who was in this land first? The Jews. Who did G-d give this land to? The Jews.
It's a shame they needed to conquer it by force but it's the most ridiculous notion to say 'Give it back'. Shall the US give back Texas to Mexico? Has the US govt ever looked to have a two state solution with the Indians from whom they actually did steal the land?No. Oh, that's taken for granted

NO, by the hand of G-d
Corrupt and delusional Israel politicians (assisted by rife propaganda in the media) have swallowed the two state lie. Given half a chance they'd trade away our entire inheritance. Thank G-d that they don't get their way.

No is right
The Almighty decides what is done with His land. There is not going to be compromise, nor will there be peace. Not until Moshiach Tzidkeinu, the coming of the Messiah, Son of David. Only then will the One and only G-d, Creator of heaven and earth, be recognized by the entire world and the wicked will perish.

They can't say "Yes"! That's what the world needs to understand!
For the Palestinian leader to say "Yes" to Israel without using al-takyyah (Islamic deception) would be seen in the Muslim world as converting to Judaism itself. It can't happen, it won't happen, it will never happen! It is not just the Hamas-electing Palestinians that has a interest in this issue. Jewish people living in their own sovereign ancestral homeland is the greatest threat to the doctrines of the Vatican and Islam. The political wing of these two religions (the Quartet) knows a two-state solution is indeed a "Finial Solution" to the State of Israel. Israel needs to worry about saying "yes" to G-d instead of putting their trust in a prince or "son of man" in hopes he will say "yes" to Israel. How long will it take for Israel to learn this???

who say "Yes" will be assassinated. This is why is will continue to be "No" until Israel decides to drive violent Arabs from all of Israel.
This conclusion stems from years of researching Arab rhetoric, Islam, and Israel's no win situation unless she has the courage to expel those who want her eradicated.
Forget world opinion. Most of the world is brainwashed by the PC language of today.

the just-say-no PA
Given how much there is a lack of Palestinian leadership, they don't seem to understand how to compromise. They just seem to have a rut between a 2-party system between Hamas and Fatah, which never really seemed to lead or progress anywhere, but maybe sideways - it's much like how the 2-party system between democrats and republicans in America may be running its course since virtually no progress can be made, despite that the dems currently hold a filibuster-proof majority in the house and senate. How much can the world really lack good leadership, especially nowadays?
