Netanyahu: Peace must allow for ‘ability to defend ourselves’
The Times of Israel ^ | 6/27/2013 | HAVIV RETTIG GUR

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Thursday said Israel would pursue peace with the Palestinians, but reiterated his insistence on satisfactory security arrangements for Israel.

“Peace is desirable in and of itself, but it is based on our ability to defend ourselves,” Netanyahu said at a ceremony at the Mount Herzl military cemetery marking the 109th anniversary of the death of Zionist visionary Theodor Herzl.


A report in the Haaretz daily on Thursday quoted a senior Likud official as saying that Netanyahu would be willing to “withdraw from the majority of the West Bank” and even evacuate settlements in exchange for security arrangements with the Palestinians.

I'm making an effort no to use any profanity, but this is way too much! Please, someone tell me it is not true. Does Bibi understand how God feels about dividing the land?

Everyone knows a two-state solution cannot work. Not when one side is implacable. Guess which side.

Why don't rich Arab countries - the ones that brag about their ‘great concern’ for the Palestinians - get together and BUY some of the endless Arab scrub land over there and give it to the Palestinians? Or some of the bordering states could donate land...

None of the Arab countries want Palestinians on their border.
They want to be rid of Israel, nothing else.
Palestinians are only an excuse (as if they needed one).

Bibi has turned Jewish homes and land over to Muslim Arabs before. Why the surprise that he’ll do it again?

I was scoffed at for suggesting Israel would give up the Negev because it is too sparsely populated for economically rational defense, and because giving it up would enact the Bush-Condi Rice doctrine of a contiguous Palestine. Not so farfetched now, is it?

Oh, yes, it is! Actually, Israel should annex Samaria and Judea, and Gaza. They should tell the world where to go and place their trust in the Lord. It might help if they get rid of that abomination on the Temple Mount and rebuild the Temple. Talking about giving up land flies in the face of God’s plan for it.
