While Pres. Obama is trying to forbid Jews from living in Judea & Samaria, his country still controls islands thousands of miles from the USA.
Recently, tragedy struck Samoa in the South Pacific in the form of a tidal wave. American Samoa is an unincorporated state southeast of independent Samoa.
As reports came in, I couldn't help but ponder the irony inherent in the use of the expression American Samoa.....
If Judea must be Judenrein, then every Arab in Israel should be sent packing. Israel must be made Arabrein. Half of the latter are just waiting-- like vultures-- to pounce anyway... given the right moment.
It is truly time for equal treatment here. What's good for Jews must be good for Arabs.
Forget land for peace. It's a bad joke--part of the Arabs' openly-admitted destruction-in-phases plan since 1967. Look at a map of the region. Is the problem really a lack of Arab land in comparison to Israel?
Peace for peace...Period.
No recognition of a Jewish State of Israel?
Then no recognizing a 22nd state for Arabs--and their second , not first, one in "Palestine".
Unlike Samoa to America, Judea and Samaria are literally a stone's throw away from Israel's heartland, are an integral part of Jewish history, and are positioned to allow a hostile army entering from the east to cut Israel in half.
Finally, and this can't be repeated too often...
Look at what came after Israel's total withdrawal from Gaza years ago to see what a total Israeli withdrawal from the "West Bank" will mean for Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Haifa, Ben-Gurion Airport, the Knesset, and so forth once Israel has been forced back to the '49 armistice lines--not borders--imposed on it by the United Nations and which made it a mere 9-16 miles wide at its strategic waist, where most of its population, industry, and so forth are located.
And the next time you hear Washington insisting upon a Jew-free Judea and Samaria, please give a long, hard thought to American Samoa.
