The above title is
identical to that used in an article written by
Jerusalem Post analyst
Caroline Glick on June 21, 2005, when
Ariel Sharon was
Israel ’s prime minister. The title surely applies to
Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, who told a
New York audience “we are tired of being courageous”—this, on
June 9, 2005, when he was Vice Prime Minister.
self-incrimination reveals more than meets the eye. It means that he and
his cowardly colleagues want to surrender to Arab terrorists—of course
under the façade of seeking “peace.” The trouble is that unlike Israel’s
ruling elites, Arabs are willing to fight and die—and go on fighting and
dying—to achieve their ultimate objective—Israel’s annihilation.
This is the true story
Israel’s mendacious peace process. Very much the same story is
leading to Islam’s conquest of
Europe. Yes, and this Big Lie of the Middle East facilitates and
hastens Islam’s proclaimed objective, the conquest of America.
There is not a single
political leader in
Israel, and not a single political leader in the United States ,
that has the courage to confront the truth about Islam’s relentless
ambition to dominate the world. None dares reveal the bloody history of
Islamic imperialism, which began with its prophet Mohammed in the
seventh century, and which led to the slaughter of an estimated 240
million Christians, Jews, Zoroastrians, Buddhists, and Hindus.
Europe, thy name is cowardice. But what of America—the land of
the free and the home of the brave? Have you too become tired of being
courageous? And you
Israel—have you become a
black hole from which the light of freedom cannot stream forth?
If your prime minister
is a coward, if he and his accomplices lack the courage to put an end to
the murderous crimes perpetrated by Arabs against
Israel, in particular the Jews of Sderot, and if he trembles in
fear of a world that never denounces these crimes against humanity, then
I say: “Rise up O
Israel, rise up, and rid the Land of its cowardly government!”
You need not need
wallow in the subjectivism of Winograd Committee spokesman Professor
Yehezkel Dror, an individual still committed—against all reason—to a
14-year peace process that has resulted in the murder and maiming of
more than 10,000 Jewish women, men, and children—an academic whose moral
obscurantism led him to say: “I cannot make up my mind whether Olmert
You, O People of
Israel, whose prophets gave mankind the Book of Truth—you, O
Israel, you know the truth: Olmert and his entire government must
go along with the death process called “peace”.
Yes, you worry about
Olmert’s most likely successor,
Benjamin Netanyahu, whose “profile in courage” is not exemplary.
Israel, you should have the opportunity to rid your country of a
spineless prime minister who is largely responsible for
Israel ’s fiasco in the Second Lebanon War and for the deadly
trauma of Sderot.
Olmert must be punished
for his failings by being removed from office; and it should be made
crystal clear to Mr. Netanyahu, indeed, to the world at large, that the
Israel will no longer tolerate a coward for prime minister.
