In Israel, the "land for peace" demand is called the "Auschwitz Border" because it makes Israel militarily indefensible the way the Hitler land-for-peace plan in Poland lead to Poland being indefensible and the genocide of Polish Jews in Auschwitz.
If only Israel will give up it's defensive zone making Israel indefensible - as demanded by Israel's enemies who vow to kill all Jews and by Western powers lead by the USA, there will be "peace in our time."
"Peace in our time" means the 2nd mass murder of the largest Jewish population in the world now in Israel (the first was in Poland in the 1940s) and another world war - ultimately with nuclear weapons.
Hopefully, Israeli Jews will continue to oppose their own mass murder and be wise enough not to rely on the USA or the West for any military alliance or support if attacked. The lessons learned in WW2 include absolutely not believing anything Western powers and the USA says in terms of peace and military alliance. Every country that relied upon such reliance and made concessions accordingly as demanded by Western powers and their potential enemy promising peace if they conceded was annihilated.
Rather than giving up its defensive zones, Israel should be building/buying ballistic missile submarines with nuclear tipped warheads.
It was in all the papers.
Unusua, in that case, that the incisive intellect in the White House seems to have missed it. I thought he read all the papers and THAT is where he and his staff discover things. Apparently everything that they discover.
This shows, once again, that with Obama in the White House it is far more dangerous to be an ally of the US than it is to be an enemy.
Budapest Memorandum on Security Assurances - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Budapest Memorandum on Security Assurances is a political agreement signed in Budapest, Hungary on 5 December 1994, providing security assurances by its signatories relating to Ukraine's accession to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons. The Memorandum was originally signed by three nuclear powers, the Russian Federation, the United States of America, and the United Kingdom. China and France gave somewhat weaker individual assurances in separate documents.
The memorandum included security assurances against threats or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of Ukraine as well as those of Belarus and Kazakhstan. As a result Ukraine gave up the world's third largest nuclear weapons stockpile between 1994 and 1996, of which Ukraine had physical though not operational control. The use of the weapons was dependent on Russian controlled electronic Permissive Action Links and the Russian command and control system.
I am not of the mind that a man is either of science or of religion. At his best and his worst, man exists in the misty glimmering where the falling angel meets the rising ape. That he chooses a direction from that point defines him as human.
Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy
What is it that Israel does when they regularly engage in the activity that they call "mowing the lawn?"
Just how is it that over one million people ended up in Gaza in those wretched conditions?
