I like how he says there is evil in the world. Um yeah, tell that to the widows of Palestinian farmers.
Further, if bad things should be stopped when there small, as Netanyahu states, why don't they stop with their greater occupation and humiliation?
God did not promise Jews this land. There is no way to reclaim land after 2000 years. They don't have leases on papyrus that say this. Added many are Ashkenazi, who are really nomadic Turks that converted to Judaism in the dark ages.
If they return this land, they will erase much of the anger that the world views toward Israel. Of course their will always be people against Jews, or Indians, Chinese, and British. That is the way it goes.
They need to trust that other religious faiths are not out to destroy them.
The world is not against them.
I know that I am starting to repeat myself a little bit here, but it's come up so often: The Jews are the only group who are held responsible for hate and bigotry leveled against them. What if I threatened the Muslim population of Europe: If they don't stop wearing burkas and supporting terrorists, something...unfortunate might happen to them? I would surely be denounced as a bigot, and rightfully so!
Let's not forget: The Jews didn't even need to do anything to be rounded up and killed last time. Hitler and the other anti-Semites had all the excuses they ever needed to without a state of Israel. If it wasn't Israel, it would be Bernie Madoff. If it wasn't Madoff, it would be an Alfred Dreyfuss.
Let's not forget: It's illegal to try and destroy a sovereign state in the UN. But that is what the Arabs did three times, and the Palestinians continue to try and do. The international community sat back and did nothing while the Jews came within a hair of a true second Holocaust not once, not twice, but three times.
So now the Jews are done "playing nice." They have finished bowing their heads and trying to please everybody by being perfect all the time. If it means that they are going to be hated, then so be it. In the words of Yaacov Lozowick, "The Jews had millennia of powerlessness, and were not loved for it nor was it an especially pleasant exercise. Now they've got power, and they're intensely disliked for it by some. Given the alternative, it's better to have the power."
