Temporary Respite from the Enemies of Israel

Reader comment on item: Standing with Steven J. Rosen

Submitted by M. Tovey (United States), May 6, 2009 at 13:00

We can hope that for the moment, the respite given to these individuals will hold for some time, and that the resultant momentum provides some force in the efforts to stem the activities of the enemies of America and Israel, even of those from within. However, there is still the inevitability of the enemy intentions that America and Israel face.

Even as we hear of the US dropping the case, in the same headlines we read that Israel's insistence of recognition from her enemies as part of the 'peace process' falls on deaf ears; which calls for, again, a serious reconsidering of Israel's position on how to deal with just as insistent rantings from people wanting Israel's demise. PM Netanyahu's posture appears to be on the right track.

One suggestion is to slam the door in the face of enemies pretending to want a 'peace' deal, and handle the extant hostilities without worrying about someone calling for a 'hudna,' when the hostiles have exhausted themselves to a stalemate. Or, let the suggestion be followed to reconfigure Mt. Moriah into a site for rebuilding the single most important edifice that declares the Jewishness of the people, the Temple. Let us see the reaction to that.

In the final analysis, all of Mr. Rosen's efforts, and those who are similarly engaged, will find in summary conclusion that the enemies of Israel will finally tire of something they really are not interested in, peace with Israel, and will be compelled to act out the final aggression and end up dying in trying.
