What is Olmert drinking?

The Prime Minister of Israel is under the impression that Israel should give away Judea and Samaria to the Muslims.  According to the Prime Minister, anyone who thinks Israel can continue to hold onto the provinces captured in the defensive Six Day War of 1967 is “living in a dream.”   What has been put in his drinking water? 

More commonly known as the West Bank, Judea and Samaria has been under Israel control since 1967, when Israel drove the Jordanian occupiers out.  The UN recognizes it as Israel territory.  It holds rich historical meaning for the Jews.

Going back a bit into history, Judea was the name used by the Roman empire for the land stretching along the Jordan river, the coastal plains, Samaria, most of Galilee, the Golan Heights and considerable land east of there. 

“Lord Robert Cecil, acting British foreign secretary, was right to use the name Judea for the whole land in his famous remark: “Our wish is that Arabian countries shall be for the Arabs, Armenia for the Armenians, and Judea for the Jews” (December 2, 1917).”  Historical link.

It’s been a contentious area between Muslims and Jews for centuries.  But now the Muslims want it, are laying claim to it as their rightful lands and Olmert thinks it ought to be given away.  Over half of Israel’s population make residence in this land and much of the economic industry is concentrated there including the energy and power installations.  It’s a very important part of Israel.  It would be akin to the US giving to Mexico the land in the southern areas of California, New Mexico, Arizona and Texas.

This is really their problem, and I have no right to suggest, or even comment as what they should do.  It’s just that Muslims are spreading their wings across the world and as their population increases, their demands become more and more intolerable to those of us in the West.  We support Israel.  We have common ancestry in that land as the lands have Biblical roots for both Jews and Christians.  The Jews have allowed Muslims to live in these lands peacefully for years, and there has been peaceful co-existence for decades, but now the militant jihad is spreading as radical Muslims want it all.  Whatever means necessary. 

You’ve heard the rants of that mullah from Iran saying that Israel should be wiped off the face of the earth. 

Well, they can’t have it all.  Their domination of the world will not happen.  The sharia law will not get a foothold in the West.  But, if Israel continually gives in to the demands of Muslims, thinking this last piece of land is all they want and after this concession, they will be forever happy, then it will only be a matter of a few years, in our lifetime, that Israel will be no more.  And all of the Biblical archeological sites will be sand dunes.

It’s all part of the war against Islamic terror.  What has Olmert been drinking?  Sounds like the same juice our own liberal democrats have been drinking.
