The logic of "disengagement"

"You're out of Gaza?

There'll be quiet [there].

You'll leave Judea and Samaria?
There'll be quiet [there].

And if you leave Tel Aviv, then there will be quiet altogether!"

Moshe Yaalon, just-retired* IDF Chief of Staff, about the unilateral disengagement plan.

( * Yaalon was retired from his post due to his outspoken opposition to Sharon's terror-rewarding policy )

Yaalon says it as it is - the Gaza "disengagement" is just another small step for the terrorists on their way to "drive the Jews into the sea" ... He and many other experts predict an outright "terror war", a huge increase in terror attacks, to come over Israel after the expulsion of Jews from Gaza is completed.

And even the "palestinian" Arabs concur with that notion:

"Jibril Rajoub, PA security advisor and former head of its secret police, says (...) [that] this "tahadiye" [ period of quiet ] however, will not last longer than the scheduled withdrawal/retreat from Gaza (...) unless it is actively renewed by the various terrorist organizations".

So let's hope that the terror gangs will suddenly turn into peace activists following the ethnic cleansing of Gaza's Jews.

One could equally expect a dog to turn vegetarian ...

Well, that's what they want, and I see that whatever will be, they won't accept the state of Israel.

Right ... I would go even further and say that the weaker Israel appears to be ( islamists regard appeasement and concessions as a sign of weakness ), the more aggressive and confident in their jihadd they will become.

What do I say, "will become" - they already have become: Since the Oslo Accords which created the PA and gave it unprecedented sovereignties, many more Jews have died from terror attacks than ever before.

That's was said by a Comedian, but it's right:

" We and the Arabs have a deal.
They lie, we believe. "

Too bad that's true.

Well, and for the Palestinians who cliam the land is theirs:

In a book who's name is Derech Eretz, a book of the History of Israel, there's an article who's " name is it really 2000 years? "

What it claims is that the Jews were on an exile 1300 years, and not 2000.
Let me explain.

During the 1st and 2nd centuries there were two Jewish rebellions against the Romans, the 1st ended in 73 AD in the fall of Massada, and the other ended in 135 AD in the fall of Beit TAr, bar Kokhba's last fort.

After the 2nd rebellion, Hadrian exiled the Jewish community in the region of the uprising villages to Europe, and their descendants are the Ashkenazi Jews.
That's why the name of Israel was changed from Judae to Palestine, in order to delete the jewish connection to there, but that's another subject.

But, it was not a major part of the Jewish population in the world.
By both Jewish, Roman and Byzantine resources, the Jewish community in Israel was 750000, 3/4 of the Jewish community in the world, and out of the population of Israel, that was then 3000000 citizens.

But, that was like that until the Arab conquest.
The Arabs, who wanted more believers to Islam, wanted the citizens to become Muslims.
Even though they settled Arabs in Israel ( the first Palestinians ), most of the Population was still Samaritan, Jewish and Christian, so they started a policy of Islam or death, but that didn't work.

So, they decided of taxes the Jews should pay for being a Jew, and the Jews had no money to pay, so most of them fleed to Europe and SDpain.

Amm, interesting story, haH?

Actually the Jewish presence in the Holy Land never ended ... there was always at least a small, but significant minority of Jews left.

But that is irrelevant to the disputes of today.

I will address that in a more detailed post soon - the essence of it will be that no matter the historic facts ( which speak for the Jews, by the way, as you correctly observed in principle ), Israel as a modern nation incl. the disputed territories is a legitimate state if measured by contemporary moral standards and international laws.
