Zionism Founder's Morality Question Applies Today

Wednesday, 13 August 2014 09:36 AM Current | Bio | Archive

On Tuesday came the news that an Israeli official said that there is no end in sight to the ongoing war between Israel and the Palestinian Arabs, saying of the discussions taking place in Egypt currently, "The gaps are still very wide. There has not been progress in the negotiations."
As there's "negotiations" with a Palestinian delegation, which includes representatives of terrorist organizations, including the Palestine Liberation Organization, Hamas, and Islamic Jihad, one wonders what sort of negotiations there can be.
These organizations are clear — they want Israel destroyed. Israel rightfully stands against Islamic terror, and their fight is the fight of the entire West. Hamas, ISIS, and the Muslim Brotherhood are one — enemies of civilization.  
Ze’ev Jabotinsky, the founding father of modern-day nationalistic Zionism who clung to his firm belief that Jews needed an army of their own, asked in a speech many years ago to a European audience, "Is a situation moral in which one side can commit any crime or murder and the other is forbidden to react?” These words can be echoed today — no matter what happens, the world blames Israel.
Many years ago during riots in pre-state Israel, Jabotinsky wrote and asked, "Jews can’t let themselves be seen on the roads of Palestine — but the Arab in Tel Aviv feels at home. He gets up in the morning and sets out and knocks on the Jews’ door and says ‘Good morning. I have brought some vegetables’ — and nothing happens. He’s not afraid of being harmed. How long can this go on? Forever? Why, under such circumstances, should the Arabs stop what they are doing?”  
The terrorists who fired rockets cannot be allowed to continue to operate with impunity. The solution against terrorism is strength.
