The Morning After Elections by Sara Layah Shomron


The Morning After Elections

There is no getting around the fact that the majority of the Israeli electorate want to give half of Jerusalem and the overwhelming majority of Judea and Samaria to the Arabs. They want to set permanent borders to the State of Israel incorporating the fewest number of Arabs as possible. They want separation from the Arabs but fail to realize that while the Land is truncated the Arab population remains. The result of this will be the expulsion of more than 100,000 Jews from their homes and our Land within the next few years. I mourn the intended loss of our Land and the tragedy to be inflicted upon my fellow Jews by a Jewish government. This election was definitely a referendum for the future of Judea and Samaria.

It's not only about ideology. The voting electorate also made it clear that they voted their pocketbooks. The elderly, large familes, and the Sephardim were hard hit by Netanyahu's austere economic plan and voted for the Labor, Pensioner and Shas political parties.

Clearly a truncated Israel will be no easy feat for Ehud Olmert to carry out. The religious Zionist is not a lemming cooperating with National suicide. It will be met with demonstration after demonstration and no doubt further bloody Amonas. The cost in human blood and a disconnected Jewish minority may lead to a path of civil war. And if we don't destroy ourselves from within, Hamas has made it clear it will continue to destroy us from without.

Sure the Arabs have rocked, bombed, mortared, rocketed, kassamed, ketushed us – and the large majority of the Israeli electorate still don't get it; thinking the Arabs can be appeased by throwing more and more Land at them. Ethnocentric Western thinking prevents them from seeing that they are only showing weakness and whetting the Arab enemy's appetite.

Yet perhaps it is from Hamas G-d will work his miracles in transcending the Jewish majority from their deep and Pollyanna stupor. After all, our history has shown us that it is through external adversity that we have found our strength and fortitude to survive.
