A Catastrophe in the Making. Lapid’s Delusion. Ben Gvir the Solution.
Israel interim Prime Minister Yair Lapid addressed the 77th session of the United Nations General Assembly this Thursday, September 22.
He generally spoke well and, at times, verged on the inspirational. Yet he never achieved the lofty heights of enriching the Jewish story. Lapid fell short of bewitching Israelis when he insisted a future Palestinian state would exist next to Israel should it fulfil specific criteria that met Israel’s security needs.
Lapid used his time at the UN Assembly to garner precious votes from the undecided voters back in Israel. With some media hype, Lapid will get a bounce in the next polling that should, however, evaporate over the next six weeks leading up to election day.
Once you remove the window dressing, we are left with a pig’s ear. The best Lapid can offer Israel is a return to the dark days of the Oslo accords. Lapid offers Israel a nightmare dressed up as a lofty dream. An Arab nationalist state on our doorstep is nothing short of a terrible, foreboding cloud hanging over the Jewish States’ head – over its future – over its very existence.
A government that cynically trades away the Jewish birthright has no place governing its citizens. These secular leaders can only offer a valueless society that has lost any sense of its Jewishness.
By harking back to a two-state solution, Lapid and his cronies guarantee failure in resolving the domestic Arab problem. Lapids ill-spoken words reveal a shallow Jew who is prepared to believe his own nonsense despite all the facts and evidence that contradicts his belief in a two-state solution.
Lapid spoke of partnering with the nationalist Arabs in creating a viable, prosperous Arab state up against the Jewish State. Lapid’s contempt for these Arabs is beyond belief. Does he think they will love us by giving the Arabs more of everything they will be content to settle for crumbs from the Jewish table? Does Lapid believe for one moment, the Arab will happily trade their national goal for a better standard of living? That’s contempt. That’s national chauvinism for all to see. A lighter shade of colonialism in the guise of enlightened inclusiveness.
This won’t do; it’s time to call a spade a spade. Two people claim the land as exclusively theirs. They are sworn enemies, and only one can remain in Israel. If the Jewish people are to see the Arab enemy off, they will have to embrace the Jewish lesson “if one comes to slay you, slay him first.”
On November 1, you can accept the sugar-coated words of a Lapid, or you can reject the insanity those words represent. Instead, Israelis can again believe in the Religious Zionist vision for the Jewish State by voting for Otzma Yehudit. Its leader Itamar Ben Gvir, a man, slandered by the Jewish Establishment day after day in the media and by the political Left despite his genuine warnings of the impending disaster, Israel can look forward to this outcome should the Left be successful in the upcoming election.
Itamar Ben Gvir takes the obligation to warn our people of the dangers ahead very seriously, no matter the cost. He is committed to telling the truth for the sake of the Jewish people, regardless of how painful the truth may be.
