Sovereignty of Israel with no safety and security is hollow defense

The State of Israel must always keep in mind its own sovereign obligations and be careful not to risk its capacity to perform the vital task of defending itself, its people, and its interests. Israel must even under the most adverse conditions; it shall not and must not capitulate to world pressure whereby its citizen's safety and security is compromised.
In the past due to reasons which I will not enumerate at this time, Israel's government has made and applied decisions that compromise the safety and security of the country and its people.

I hope Israel has learned from its mistakes and will not repeat those mistakes and maybe even try to correct those mistakes which Israel is paying the price on a daily basis with daily terror and violence and it seems that there is no end in sight.

Israel has faced over 23,980 terror attacks since September 2000, when a wave of terror started against Israeli citizen's right after Arafat was offered a second independent Arab/Palestinian state, not withstanding Jordan which is officially an Arab Palestinian State since 1946 on Jewish territory.

To date Israel's concessions and appeasement to the Arabs has decreased the safety and security of Israel's population. Let us act as the government of our Jewish land in all the areas west of the Jordan River, It is time to change direction and not worry about world opinion. Do not wait for the world at large to condemn these terrorist attacks, they did not care in the past when Jewish blood was spilled and they do not care now.

The security and safety of the people of Israel must be first and foremost above any other consideration. That is the duty and obligation of a responsible government. Deliberating at time of National crisis without a previous set plan borders on dereliction of duty, based on Israel's experience with terror, they should know better. Meanwhile, Israelis are being killed and injured on a daily basis throughout Israel, while terror attacks continue unabated, stone throwing and riots must be stopped at all costs, the people in Israel feel unsafe and the economy is suffering.

Get your act together, act immediately and forcefully with no compromise and zero tolerance, now this is the only way, it has to be Israel's way or the highway. Any delay in implementation will increase terror and violence and escalate the death and injury of Jewish lives in Israel. Israel must face the bold facts. The Arabs do not want peace, they never did, they only want the destruction of Israel, Israel must act accordingly with no illusion and fantasy or false promises that the Arabs are partners for peace, it is perfectly clear that they are not and they proclaim it repeatedly.
The Arabs educate and train their children to commit terror and violence, celebrate and glorify suicide bombers, Need I say anymore.

Stop bickering among yourselves, unify it is essential for our survival, and face the enemy with vigor and determination and do not stop until the enemy is totally vanquished and peace and tranquility returns to Israel.

Napoleon famously said that in warfare if you vow to take Vienna—take Vienna.
If Israel wants to stop terrorism then it must take them down permanently, with no restriction whatsoever.
