Here we go again. playing to the tried and true convention of the past.  Promising victory and settling for stalemate

Victory or Stalemate

Gaza conflict continues while Hamas sets the agenda.

This scenario has persisted in large part because of an accepted strategic and political equilibrium on the part of successive Israel governments imposed from Washington since the Eisenhower administration.


The equilibrium invites the Jewish State to do enough not to incur defeat, while at the same time avoiding victory.

This reluctance on our part to achieve a definitive outcome with Hamas stems from a long-held belief that any decisive action would compromise our relationship with the U.S. and do irreparable damage to Public opinion abroad.

While the political equilibrium is reinforced by the old canard that the American diaspora needs to be placated at all COSTS.

Diaspora ???

Both of these tenants are wrong and if an Israel Government would take up a position contrary to the interests of the United States and its western allies the Jewish State would succeed in ridding itself of a deadly threat to Israel’s very existence.

While at the same time securing our national borders from existential threats.

A total victory over Hamas in Gaza would be an opportune time to declare the two-state solution dead and buried, followed by the annexation of the Shomron and Yehuda.

As a consequence of carrying out the above actions, the Palestinian Authority would no longer exist.

The Oslo fraud will have been dealt a much-deserved death blow.

Oslo Fraud

To persist with half measures and short-term goals would court calamity and deliver a fatal blow to our national interests, this cannot be allowed to go on indefinitely.


Should our political elite choose appeasement over realism, then they will have adopted a posture of contempt for the Jewish people and ambivalence towards our country’s future.

Its hoped that our current crop of leaders will reject such miserable and Bankrupt policy’s and eventually decide to abandon the strategies and commitments of the last forty years.

All this would foster a positive dynamic and stop us as a nation from being swamped by negativism and false truths.

Yosef Yigal Drever and Sylvia Drever co-founded Achdut HaLev in 2006 to reach out to the Jewish community's around the world providing support in learning Torah and promoting the 'Return of the Jewish people to the Land of Israel.' Yosef Yigal made Aliya in 2014 while Sylvia his wife is an Israeli. In late 2014 Achdut HaLev concentrated all its resources towards Aliya and the rebuilding of Eretz Yisrael. Excluding none and embracing all. The commandment to settle the Land of Israel is equal in importance to all the Torah Commandments all together: (Sifri Deut 12:29)
