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?
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
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.
