Israeli excuse for not exiting OSLO & Camp David?
Israel has tons of excuses for why the other side is not going along with the Peace Process. Its as if, its a complete surprise to find the other side has declared genocidal war on Jews and Israel! ("We never knew...")What's never talked about, is why Israel refuses to end Camp David and Oslo.They could- Under the law and even according to the agreements, very little has not been violated by the other side. But they don't.Instead we are led to understand that "Israel has no choice".Obviously, Israel signing the secretly negotiated peace agreements feels YOU don't have a choice. You should not be asked. The Lubavitcher Rebbe asks on this point of holding secret negotiations: "If its such a great good, so why the secret?" Tell everyone what great good you are negotiating secretly for Israel's Jewish population."Raanan

The Middle East Peace process could become a reality if enough people get involved and actually put effort and do something about it! Like getting the Jewish and the arabs to agree on land rights!

See It Again
Dear Alex, you missed the point. The conflict is NOT about land; this was offered and even unilaterally returned by Israel. It is about hate - the hate that terrorists hold for all but their own in-group, including rival terrorists!

In short, in 100 Words...
Israel [the multi-racial, equal democracy], its Jewish returnees to their historic homeland, face genocide campaign [at times "just" ethnic cleansing] by Arab-Muslims since the 1920's. Whether by Arab immigrants, their children - called "Palestinians," or by [apartheid, almost Judenrein] Arab/Muslim forces [exploiters of Arab-Palestinians] for: power, sheer anti-Jewish hatred [exemplified through dehumanization/incitement], or as part of an overall Jihad towards world domination.
Motivation: Islamic bigotry, Jihad, Arab racism.
The aggressors (Palestinians/Hezbollah) self-made "victims" falsify information/images, define lost battles, casualties resulting from Islamists using civilians (to make humane Israel look bad), as "massacres."

Islam is wrong about the West Bank
whether you call them arab's or Islam, they are the same, they want the destruction of Isreal and will never be happy until they acheive their goal. Those are hard facts. BUT, G-d will not allow this to happen. It is the Arab's who will be defeated. Until they are removed from or intigrated into (doubtful that will happen) Isreal, there will be no peace for Isreal. talks of peace will not solve the problem, only when Isreal stands up for what G-d ordained then there will be peace for Isreal. History has shown it, time and time again over thousands of years. When His poeple do what He has told them, then Isreal can know peace.

Excellent presentation Danny, but please change the background music. You are talking about a serious situation; it needs serious music.

Ayalon the best man in right time
September 18, 2011 5:13 PM
"Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results". Ayalon's conclusion at the end of his articulate and historically correct speech is insane and very dangerous. He certainly does not speak for me and I hope many other Jews. In order to survive Israel finally needs to say No!!!!! And then, only then will Israel have true peace and gain the respect of the rest of the world!

truly the best up to now
Our prime minister should take take gentleman with him...thank you Mr Ayalon and shana tova to you.

Is the guy insane?
So Ayalon goes on saying the Palestinians always said no, and concludes, ok, let's wait until they say yes. 1 1=3 if you wait long enough, huh? Insane the guy is, I say. Try this: if you keep saying no, I'll take back what I gave you that belongs to me. Birthright they call it. See if he keeps saying no. Who's freakin' out?
