Dear Caroline, amv"sh
You know I love all that you do. Let's make it simple. The Key is G-d and the Torah.
If it is as you say, the reason we claim the Land of Israel is simply because our enemies deligitimize us and wish to annihilate us...
does that really Legitimize our Claim to Our Land?
If for example someone has a bicycle and threatens to kill me if I insist it's my bicycle and show how much I really need the bicycle and the wonderful things I do with the bicycle, does that make the bicycle mine? But if I can show that indeed that bicycle belongs to me then, he is terrorizing and bullying me into giving it up. If I can't show that the bicycle belongs to me, then people will just tell me to shut up so that he won't kill me.
And, if as you so convincingly show that Latin America, South America Europe the Obama Administration the UN and various NGO's are supporting FATAH and Hamas directly or indirectly with money, militarily training or politically, not to mention Iran and Saudi Arabia and the Arab countries who are collectively funding Hamas and Taliban in the billions and all are engaging in political and/or military warfare against Israel, who will help Israel fight our battles if not the Creator of the World?
Let us acknowledge His presence in all of this by speaking about the Covenant between G-d and our Forefathers and the Nation of Israel. There are many Bible Believers in the world so we are not alone.. We have a common denominator. G-d and the Torah. Many refer to Torah by the name "Scriptures". The Torah is our Guiding Light in this period of darkness. Only in the Land of Israel can Commandments be actualized to the fullest by the collective Nation Israel with support of the Bnei Noach and their commitment to the 7 Noahide Laws. When we observe the Commandments in the Land, G-d promises us security. And if we fail, then G-d has His agents to wake us up or G-d forbid throw us out. When we fulfill our obligations Laws and Statutes in the Land, then G-d protects us. How can we do that when we agree even in principle to give the Land away?
Can we put on Tefillin w/o a hand? The hand is the vessel for the commandment of Tefillin. The Land is the vessel for the benefit of mankind via G-d's Chosen People Israel. Without the vessel we can not accomplish our G-dly mission.
The time has come to put G-d and the Torah in the forefront and to make it a public proclamation to the World and not keep it a private acknowledgment in the privacy of our homes Because what is at stake here is the War of Terror on mankind. If Israel doesn't take the lead to be the Lion Kingdom of the World then the evil Scar and the Coyotes take over. And Israel can not succeed unless the Almighty Powerful One is fighting for us. Let's put our efforts and bucks in the Almighty with recognition and prayer and implementing many of your wonderful suggestions while Saudis, EU, USA, the UN, Latin America, South American waste their efforts and bucks in futility.
That is the key to our Victory.

Column One: The wars of 2011
By CAROLINE B. GLICK, The Jerusalem Post
December 28, 2010
Israel must be prepared for two things this upcoming year: A missile
war with Hamas and a political war with Fatah.
On Sunday thousands of Israel haters gathered in Istanbul to welcome
the Turkish-Hamas terror ship Mavi Marmara to the harbor. Festooned
with Palestinian flags, the crowd chanted "Death to Israel," "Down
with Israel" and "Allah akbar" with Hizbullah-like enthusiasm.
The Turkish protesters promised to stand on the side of Hamas when it
next goes to war with Israel. They may not have to wait long to keep
their promise. Over the past two weeks Hamas has steeply escalated its
missile war with over 30 launches. Last week, a missile that narrowly
missed a nursery school wounded a young girl.
Since Operation Cast Lead two years ago, Iran has helped Hamas
massively increase its missile and other military capabilities. Today
the terror group that rules Gaza has missiles capable of reaching Tel
Aviv. It has advanced antitank missiles. As Hamas spokesman Abu Obeida
said Saturday, "We are now stronger than before and during the war,
and our silence over the past two years was only for evaluating the
That evaluation has not tempered Hamas's aim of annihilating the Jews
of Israel. As Obeida's colleague Ahmed Jaabari said Saturday, Israel's
Jews have two choices, "death or departing Palestinian lands."
IDF commanders are taking Hamas's new brinksmanship seriously. In
recent days several have said that Israel's deterrence has eroded.
Another Cast Lead is just a matter of time, they warn.
In the meantime, Fatah Hamas's sometime rival and sometime brother
is preparing its next round of political warfare with its many friends
around the world. Despite some recent tactical repositioning, its goal
is clearly to proceed with its plan to declare statehood with maximum
international support within the next nine to 12 months.
To this end, Fatah and its allies are operating on multiple fronts. On
November 24 the UN General Assembly passed a resolution to hold a
Durban III conference on September 21. The first conference, held in
Durban, South Africa in September 2001, is mainly remembered as a
diplomatic pogrom against Israel and Jews which complemented the
shooting war in Israel.
As Jews were being butchered in pizzerias in Jerusalem, Jew-haters
gathered to deny that Jews have human rights. They used the UN's
anti-racism banner to assert that it is not racist to kill and incite
the murder of Jews. Jews were singled out and condemned as the only
nation in the world whose national liberation movement Zionism is
BUT EVEN more important than its service in glorifying suicide bombers
and their political commissars just three days before the September 11
jihadist assault on the US, the Durban conference was the place where
the blueprint for the political war against Israel was authored. At
the NGO conference which took place as an adjunct to the governmental
conference, self-proclaimed "human rights" groups from around the
world agreed that their job was to criminalize the Jewish state to
isolate it politically, diplomatically and economically. As key
organizers put it, the "activists'" job was to conduct a nonviolent
jihad to complement the work of the "resistance fighters" massacring
children and parents in Israel.
The Durban II conference last year in Geneva was supposed to
reinvigorate the political war that was launched in 2001. But it was a
bust. The only head of state to address the proceedings was Iranian
dictator Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. He used the occasion to again call for
the eradication of the Jewish state.
To prevent another flop, last month the Palestinians and their
supporters agreed that the 10th anniversary conference will be held in
New York during the opening of UN General Assembly. Their goal is to
piggyback on that conference to get heads of state that are in New
York already to join in their anti-Israel political war.
And they have every reason for optimism. Although Canada and Israel
have announced their plans to boycott the conference, the Obama
administration has been noticeably unwilling to distance itself from
Given the swank locale of Durban III, the Palestinians and their
friends trust they will enjoy a reprise of the virulently anti-Jewish
NGO conference of a decade ago. The resolution clearly advocates such
an outcome in its call for "civil society, including NGOs to organize
and support" the conference "with high visibility."
For Fatah leaders like the Palestinian Authority's unelected president
Mahmoud Abbas and its unelected prime minister Salam Fayyad, the
Durban III conference will be the culmination of their current
campaign to delegitimize Israel.
Last week the PA announced it will ask the UN Security Council to pass
an anti- Semitic resolution defining Jewish building in Judea, Samaria
and Jerusalem as illegal. This move dovetails nicely with Abbas's
statement over the weekend that "Palestine" will be Jew-free. As he
put it, "If there is an independent Palestinian state with Jerusalem
as its capital, we won't agree to the presence of one Israeli in it.
When a Palestinian state is established, it would have no Israeli
To date neither of these racist bids to deny Jews basic rights to
their homes and land just because they are Jews has been opposed by
any government or human rights group. And if the Obama administration
allows the PA's anti-Semitic resolution to go forward in the Security
Council, the move would be a massive victory for the political war
That war has already won some other significant victories of late. The
decision by five South American governments to recognize "Palestine"
along the 1949 armistice lines, like the decision by a number of
European states following the US to upgrade the PLO's diplomatic
status are tactical gains.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton signaled this month that the Obama
administration is wholly on board Fatah's political warfare bandwagon.
In her speech at the Brookings Institute on December 10, she said the
Obama administration supports Fatah's plan to build facts on the
ground that will make it more difficult for Israel to maintain its
control over Judea, Samaria and Jerusalem.
After calling Jewish presence in the areas "illegitimate," Clinton
pledged the US "will deepen our support of the Palestinians'
Among other things, she pledged to continue training and deploying a
Palestinian army in Judea and Samaria and pressuring Israel to
withdraw the IDF from the areas.
As she put it, "As the Palestinian security forces continue to become
more professional and capable, we look to Israel to facilitate their
efforts. And we hope to see a significant curtailment of incursions by
Israeli troops into Palestinian areas."
These then are the contours of the Palestinians' war plans for 2011.
Hamas will launch an illegal missile war to provoke an IDF campaign in
Gaza. Iran, Syria, Hizbullah, Turkey, the UN and a vast array of NGOs
and leftist governments from Norway to Brazil will support its illegal
Fatah will escalate its political war. Its campaign will be supported
by the US, the EU, the UN and a vast array of NGOs and leftist
The purpose of these two campaigns which complement one another and
which will likely culminate at the UN in September is to weaken
Israel militarily and politically with the shared purpose of
destroying it in the fullness of time.
SO WHAT must Israel do? In the first instance, it must decide that its
goal is not merely to weather this storm, but to win both of these
In recent days we have been witness to a mildly entertaining fight
between Defense Minister Ehud Barak and former prime minister Ehud
Olmert. Olmert accused Barak of purposely failing to defeat Hamas
during Operation Cast Lead. Barak, Olmert alleged, "did everything he
could to defend Hamas and to prevent its downfall in the Gaza Strip."
Barak responded to Olmert's broadside by accusing the leader who
failed to defeat Hizbullah in the 2006 war of "phony Churcillianism."
Ironically, of course, both are right. Both of them led Israel in war
with extreme incompetence. Both refused to put together strategies for
Now as the country contemplates a reprise of Cast Lead, Prime Minister
Binyamin Netanyahu must ensure that when the IDF acts, it acts
decisively and emerges victorious. If this means firing Barak, then he
must be fired.
The same is true in the political realm. The Palestinian offensive
must be met by a counteroffensive that is informed by a strategy for
victory. Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman demonstrated the starting
point on Sunday when he told Israel's ambassadors that peace with the
Palestinians is impossible. But this is not enough.
Any strategy for victory in political warfare must begin with a clear
recognition of reality. Peace is impossible because like Hamas, Fatah
is the enemy. Its leaders and rank and file reject our right to exist.
They are building a state that will be at war with us. They are avidly
working to delegitimize us with the intention of destroying us
together with their brothers in Hamas whom they finance with US and
other foreign aid.
A political war against Fatah would involve actively discrediting its
members and leaders. Today Fatah is running a campaign libeling IDF
soldiers and commanders as war criminals. Israel must file valid war
crimes complaints against Fatah terrorists and political leaders in
the international and foreign judicial bodies.
Fatah uses the UN to delegitimize us. Our delegations at all UN bodies
must daily submit resolutions calling for the condemnation of the
Palestinians for their efforts to criminalize us and carry out war
crimes against us.
Israel must also rally its allies to its side. We must ask our friends
in the US Congress to defund the Palestinian Authority and UNRWA. The
PA is a terroristic and criminal syndicate that uses US taxpayer
dollars to finance terrorism and pad the pockets of terror masters and
apparachiks. UNRWA, which is supposed to be a welfare organization,
openly acknowledges that it employs terrorists, allows its schools and
camps to be used as jihad indoctrination centers, training camps and
missile launching pads. The Congressional Research Service has stated
that it is impossible to claim that US funds to UNRWA do not at least
indirectly finance terror groups.
At home the government must stop all tax transfers to the PA. It must
prohibit the deployment of the US-trained Palestinian army in Judea
and Samaria. It must rebuff US pressure to curtail IDF counterterror
operations in Judea and Samaria.
The government must outlaw all organizations assisting the
Palestinians in their military and political warfare operations. It
should support class action lawsuits against the PA by terror victims
in local courts. It should withhold diplomatic visas to
representatives of countries like Britain where Israeli politicians
and military personnel are barred from travelling due to Palestinian
The government should implement Netanyahu's open airwaves plan and
encourage the launch of a private all news network along the Fox News
The Palestinians clearly see the coming year as a decisive year in
their war to destroy Israel. The Netanyahu government needs to muster
its forces to battle. These are battles we can win. But to do so, we
must commit ourselves to victory.
