Hafgana on Behalf of the Jews from Gaza

I could not attend this hafgana (rally)--another article, this one from the post here.; I wish I could have, and fully support the message. I strongly feel that giving away land is not likely to bring peace, and is in fact more likely to bring more terror. As I stated here, the Palestinians seem to agree with me. Pressure must be brought upon Sharon to cease from this foolishness, and pressure must also be placed on the free world's leaders to stop calling for Jews to be expelled from land they have lived on for years, land they have developed, cared for and BOUGHT from the owners.

Rewarding terror leads to terror in the same way that if a child hits another child and we give them the desired object, take it from the other child's hand to end the fight, the child will learn to fight more.

Peace needs to come with reason. The peace of submission is not peace; ask any brutalized spouse, child. Ask the victims of bullies. What brings real lasting peace is the consensus that evil will not be allowed to go on.

Terror is a weapon precisely because we are afraid to stand up against it, and submit before it. We will be able to beat swords into plowshears when everyone understands that cutting down the innocent will lead to a greater loss for the attacker than for the assailed.

I wish I could have attended the rally. Personal issues kept me away. If anyone attended, please lmk from your personal experience what went on.

Sharon isn't giving away land because he believes it will stop terror . . . he is simply fighting the New War -- PR.

In less than a decade, international opinion of the Palestinians has gone from regarding them as a pack of hate-mongering terrorists interested only in "pushing Israel into the sea" to seeing them as a tragic, oppressed people fighting for a bit of land to call their own. Arafat won the Nobel Peace Prize (!!) for his ability to produce this spin, and events have proved it is nothing more than spin.

Sharon, whom I have come to respect tremendously, is setting them up. Give them a bit of land to call home, and watch the terrorism increase. It puts Israel in the position of having the last word -- "Look! We tried to compromise! We gave them land! We are shocked and horrified to discover that they are nothing more than a bunch of hate-mongering terrorists!"

Give it some time -- that is exactly what will happen.

I don't know Anne, I agree that is a possibilty; I had actually thought that way for quite some time, that we'd give them land, they would use it to attack us and then we could defend ourselves.
However, I doubt if the rest of the world will care if Israel has the last word or not; actually, I have the sneaking suspision that a large part of the rest of the world is secretly hoping to hear Israel's final words. Then the can mourn us and say they tried. If we are attacked I fear they may continue to urge Israel to show restraint. That is what has been happening all along.

But we shall see what we shall see. In the final end it is all in the hands of G-d really. We just need to work to do our part, whatever we feel that part is.
