The Arab Cancer Within the Knesset

Ynet Reports: Israel is the 20th century's greatest robbery, carried out in broad daylight, Arab Knesset member Azmi Bishara (National Democratic Assembly) told a Lebanese audience last week during a speech at an Arab book fair in Beirut. "I will never recognize Zionism even if all Arabs do," he said. "I will never concede Palestine. The battle is still long." Bishara, who recently launched his campaign for an additional term in the Knesset, left for Lebanon five days ago without consent from the Interior Ministry, Israel's leading newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth reported Sunday. His harsh anti-Israel message at the fair was quoted by Lebanese newspaper As -Safir. "The conflict between Israel and the Palestinians is not a demographic dispute, but a national one," he said. "It's not the problem of 1.2 million Palestinians living in Israel. They are like all Arabs, only with Israeli citizenship forced upon them." "We are the original residents of Palestine, not those who came from Poland and Russia," the MK added. Tovya says: I know this is nothing new from Arab MKs, and certainly nothing new from Bishara, but you have to wonder about our stupidity every once in awhile. How many countries in the world allow their enemies to hold government positions? The answer is only our Jewish nation. You consistently hear Israelis brag about how allowing Arabs to hold Knesset seats displays our goodness. I disagree. I think it's a display of weakness, and I know that our enemies see it as such. To allow a sworn enemy, who actively supports the destruction of the nation who pays his salary, to maintain his position is suicidal at best. How long can we continue down this path of ignorance? Must we face galus again (G-d forbid) to wakeup and find the will to survive? Or have we become so accustomed to being serfs that we like being treated like vermon? All I can wish for is the coming redemption to speedily arrive, because I think that is our only hope.

I completely agree. It is an absurdity of the highest level for Arabs to serve terms in the Knesset-especially Arabs who've long been known for their anti-Semitic rhetoric.

But I don't believe the Mashiach will come any time soon. I hope I'm wrong. However, I believe Israel can hold off its enemies for a very long time to come. Though much of Israel's youth(see my site) has neither a Zionist upbringing nor Jewish values, a lot of kids here identify with our history and identity and are proud Israelis. As long as there's hope in the next generation Israel will survive(be'ezrat Hashem).

Hope to hear from you though I know you're busy, Eitan.

yeah, real busy unfortunately. end of the 4th quarter is quickly arriving, and i have been real busy with reports.

anyway, i agree to a point, but moshiach will not be revealed based on Israel's ability to hold off it's enemies, but rather when Hashem decides that enough is enough. i hope that is soon.

be blessed my friend.

Be'ezrat Hashem Mashiach will wipe out our enemies and we shall reign as the true enhabiters of Israel.
