A Defending Crusader…

The best defense is to be good and offensive…or something like that.

The Battle for Jerusalem Begins

by Hana Levi Julian

(IsraelNN.com) Prime Minister Ehud Olmert will put Jerusalem on the negotiating table as he hurtles toward a “joint declaration” with the Palestinian Authority ahead of next month’s U.S.-sponsored Mideast summit. The prime minister says that a joint declaration with PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas prior to the summit will lead to direct negotiations.

The Arabic Al Quds Al-Arabiya newspaper reported Monday morning that Olmert has now come to an agreement with Jordan that Arabs in eastern Jerusalem will be granted Jordanian citizenship. The plan would leave Jerusalem’s Muslim holy sites under the control of the Hashemite kingdom, according to the report.

Olmert publicly denies this, of course. But his sidekick has been working on this for some time.

Vice Prime Minister Chaim Ramon, the Prime Minister’s close aide and friend, however, has been pushing for the division of Jerusalem. Ramon has been promoting his own plan to hand half of the city over to the Palestinian Authority (PA), not to Jordan.

Ramon also publicly backed an arrangement for sovereignty over Jerusalem’s Old City. Only regarding the Jewish Quarter did Ramon state it would remain under Israeli rule. But Monday morning he cautioned that it is too early to detail possible arrangements.

Dr. Guy Bechor, a leading expert on Arab affairs, said recently that the prime minister agreed in writing nearly two months ago to hand over half of Jerusalem to the Palestinian Authority. He based his information on “leaks from the Palestinian side.”

Dr. Bechor said that Judea and Samaria, the strategic highlands in the middle of the Jewish State where much biblical history occurred, are also on the chopping block. The Olmert government is pushing for the establishment of an Arab state to be called Palestine alongside the Jewish State. A large but undetermined number of thriving Jewish towns in Judea and Samaria that were built over the past 40 years will be destroyed, according to the agreement.

Remember…THE TWO-STATE SOLUTION HAS ALREADY BEEN TRIED and failed. Hamas and Fatah are sworn to the elimination of Israel, not just to control of parts of Jerusalem. Giving them this much is not going to change their foundational principles. On the contrary, it will only embolden them. APPEASEMENT DOES NOT WORK.


One Response to “Treason”

  1. When will people learn? I have a feeling things are going to get much worse over the next decade as anti-antisemitism grows stronger in Europe and the Holocaust fades even further into the past.
