On the Renewal of Negotiations with the "Palestinians"

By Moshe Feiglin


The renewal of negotiations with the "Palestinians" is a tragedy about to happen, forced upon us by leadership bereft of vision or any meaningful message.

We ignore the most essential point of Kerry's announcement on the renewed negotiations with the Arabs of Judea and Samaria: Israel recognizes the "Palestinian nation" and its right to an independent state in its heartland. The Arabs of Judea and Samaria, however, do not recognize the Jewish Nation (only the Jewish religion). They do not recognize the right of the people of Mosaic religion to a state of their own in any place on the globe. Encouraged by Israel's flaccidity, the best of the West's intelligentsia is more than ready to adopt this approach.

Previously, Netanyahu had attempted to stipulate negotiations on mutual recognition. He, backed down, of course. Those who say, "So what if they recognize us or not? The main thing is that we are talking and not fighting" are simply hiding their heads in the sand. We are bequeathing to our children a reality in which the State of Israel, regardless of its borders - is an illegitimate state, existing on borrowed time.

The announcement of the release of more terrorist prisoners while our brother, Jonathan Pollard has been rotting in an American prison for 27 years is no less than the betrayal of an Israeli agent. It casts a moral stain on Israeli society as a whole.

Measures like this have never brought peace. They have always ended with blood and fire. That is what we can anticipate now, as well.
