An Eye for an Eye and a Tooth for a Tooth!

On Monday in the Knesset plenum Prime Minister Netanyahu, said in response to Jews taking aggressive action in Huwara, Northern Shomron last Sunday after two brothers were brutally murdered by a Arab nationalist for being Jews “Despite all of the fervor and impulses , there is no room for anarchy and we will not come to terms with anarchy.”

Otzma Yehudit a partner in the Netanyahu government also came in for criticism from Binyamin Netanyahu for opposing his policy on security and in particular his contaiment policy regarding Arab terror.

It would appear that this government like so many before it has chosen to appease Arab violence while coming down hard on Jewish retaliation.

One could debate the rights and wrongs of Jewish civilians taking the law into their own hands adinfinitum. However this debate would not be necessary if the government of the day fulfilled its moral responsibilities towards its citizens and destroyed the enemy of the Jewish State root and branch once and for all.

Many promises were made regarding new security measures that would eliminate terror from our streets and bring and end to Jewish blood running like a river over our Holy Land. Alas Netanyahu up to his old tricks again of talking tough and acting soft seeks to reneg on his promises. The difference this time round is he has at least two coalition partners who refuse to betray their voters and more importantly the Zionist vision for Israel going back more than three millenia.

Our people are right to not recognise the fictitious Palestinian people and treat them accordingly while proclaiming the sovereignty of the Jewish people over the entirety of the Land of Israel.

In the end right or wrong those Jews at Huwara last Sunday like their Hasmonean ancestors and all proud Jews with courage and audacity will liberate the Jewish State from the political straightjacket that has been imposed upon us by outside and internal powers since 1948.

let the hesitators and vacillators waste their time appeasing Arab sensitivities and world opinion while free Jews grasp the moment of truth and achieve great things.

In the end it comes down to an eye for an eye and a tooth for tooth!
