Israel must allow Palestinians complete freedom of movement, which requires removing all roadblocks and checkpoints in the West Bank. In particular, Israel should dismantle the security barrier erected throughout the last decade to defend against Palestinian terror attacks...
Naftali Bennett, A New Plan for Peace in Palestine, The Wall Street Journal, May 20
The proposals from the Israeli right-wing, however inadequate add a little bit to that hope [of bringing an end to Jewish Israel] We should watch how this debate develops and engage and encourage it....

Full disclosure: I voted for Bennetts party in the last elections, not because I really believed in the man or his political program, but because I saw them as the least of all evils on offer at the January 2013 polls.
Since then, however, I have had occasion for second thoughts and am approaching the conclusion that I may have been mistaken.

Both Glick and Bennett have gone off the rails. Good people. But still off the rails now with their latest proposals.
here is far better idea, just published this morning:
There is a force that is slowly moderating some of the Arab rage, and it’s not secularization, it’s Christianization. Evangelists, often Arab ones, are sharing the message. Relationships between Arab Christians and Jews are sometimes a bit chilly but it is a far cry from the hot hatred of Islam.
If Israel could see evangelists as friends it might be able to better deal with Arab groups who have excellent reason to get sick and tired of a “God” that has rabies.
The Christian evangelists are apparently doing a good job, but there are over a billion of the oppositionals
there’s just SO much more work to do!
this will take some time.... and we all have to last until it can succeed
which looks less and less likely what with the kind of national leaderships we are getting in many western countries with the number of enemy agents therein
but we agree, it will most likely be the evangelists who solve this problem, woo Satan’s minions away from him... if we can last that long..
Excellent idea! If one considers that a single Iron Dome battery costs about $50 million, while each of the Tamir interceptors cost as much as $100,000, maybe Israel would find the money to pay the Arabs to move. Just the other day, US lawmakers approved $351 million for Iron Dome and $269 million for David’s Sling and Arrow 3. That adds up to $620 million! Surely a good part of that money could be used to prevent attacks rather than respond!
yes and no, right now the money needs to be invested in the very best available defense.... no matter what better long-term solutions may be possible
but we do agree on the larger issues, and removing the terrorist population is much “nicer” (politically correct) than the obvious (just eliminating them where they are camped — which they so richly, richly deserve...but Israel is always so kid-glovish, so pacificistic, the Russians, the Chinese, the Germans, almost any other nation would have known how to take care of their enemy attackers...long ago)
