How Much Time Does Israel Have?
First, here is a quick review of event just 10 days past. In my post on the master statesman speech by Prime Minister Netanyahu to the Congress May 24th, I hit this bright note:
His address to the Congress Tuesday was, to understate, inspired—the capstone of a game-changing week. The Prime Minister changed the terms of the Palestinian discussion—and more. It should be a required lesson for every Arab in the Middle East and North Africa; for every American on our endowment and for every Nation on Israel and 4 thousand years of Jewish history. Here is a mind clearing example:
“Of the 300 million Arabs in the Middle East and North Africa, only Israel’s Arab citizens enjoy real democratic rights. Now, I want you to stop for a second and think about that. Of those 300 million Arabs, less than one-half of 1 percent are truly free and they’re all citizens of Israel. This startling fact reveals a basic truth: Israel is not what is wrong with about the Middle East; Israel is what is right about the Middle East.”
I called it a “game changer.” It did change the game of dialogue between Washington and Jerusalem concerning a settlement of the “Palestinian question.” But it did not change the reality that the “Arab Spring” is a paradox of a cold darkness in a world ablaze. It did not change the united determination of 56 Muslim countries to destroy Israel. It did not change the Obama Regime’s antagonism towards Israel and a “In our eyes you can do no wrong,” policy towards Islam. Time is undoubtedly very short for Israel. This reality should compel us to double our efforts to defeat Obama, end Harry Reid’s power and build our power in the House of Representatives.
I believe the solution to the Palestinian problem is to give Jordan up to 10 years to absorb the (non-Isreali citizen) Palestinians as Jordanian citizens. Let the Jordan River be the boundary between Israel and the new Palestinian Jordan. Andrew Klavan has another view. (H/T Scott Johnson at Power Line) Klavan looked at the 2011 Freedom House Map of Freedom for Arabs and Persia (Iran) and saw the “One State Solution.” See for yourself. (Click the map to enlarge)
As we all can see, of some 19 countries, Freedom House found three (yellow) countries with some relief from total oppression and just one country in the free (green) category, Israel. In fact, Freedom House ranks Israel the 13th most free county in 2011. Do not leave for another 3 minutes!
