Woman Honor Thyself

When women are depressed, they either eat or go shopping. Men invade another country. It's a whole different way of thinking. --Elaine Boosler

Wallz


How I Learned to Love the Wall gives us a reaction.....

ON March 28, Israelis will elect a new prime minister to replace the ailing Ariel Sharon. But I'd bet my last shekel that I'll continue to hear the phrase "Ariel Sharon's apartheid wall." It's a phrase spoken — make that spewed — on almost every university campus I visit in North America and Europe.

Among a new generation of Muzlims, this is what Mr. Sharon will be known for long after he leaves office: unilaterally erecting a barrier, most of it a fence, some of it a wall, that cuts Arab villages in half, chokes the movement of ordinary Palestinians, cripples local economies and, ultimately, separates human beings.

The critics have a point — up to a point.

After all, this barrier, although built by Mr. Sharon, was birthed by "shaheeds," suicide bombers whom Palestinian leaders have glorified as martyrs. Qassam missiles can kill two or three people at a time. Suicide bombers lay waste to many more. Since the barrier went up, suicide attacks have plunged, which means innocent Arab lives have been spared along with Jewish ones. Does a concrete effort to save civilian lives justify the hardship posed by this structure? The humanitarian in me bristles, but ultimately answers yes."




Spare me the angst of those who must travel to one of the wider official checkpoints nearby, or those who feel so "humiliated"when they have to show their identity cards.
Hows about ending more than three years of horror and violence perpetrated against innocent civilians in Israel - which have made a wall essential to prevent attacks on its own soil.
Stop the cycle of hell, Make concrete moves to end the bloodshed, dismantle militant groups, instead of concerning yourselves with fences, walls and trenches, which are needed to keep suicide bombers away from Israeli cities.

Implement sustained, targeted, and effective operations aimed at confronting all those engaged in terror and dismantle terrorist capabilities and infrastructure.
Confiscate all illegal weapons. Sound like a plan?


They're worried about separating farmers from their fields?..

What about separating babies from their mothers forever? Wives from husbands?
Separating arms, legs and parts of young men's faces from their bodies permanently?

You want to complain about wallz........Quite honestly, Israel has grown weary over the continued violence, which has claimed thousands of beautiful lives.


Oh, here's an idea : Hmmmm... Instead of conciliatory speeches about the alleged comprehensive ceasefire...Just Do IT

    Walls work. That's why the left is so offended by them.

    A Friend in Israel onnce told me that it was a simple matter to get a lasting peace in the Palestine. All the Palestinians had to do was quit killing Israelis. If the Palestians lay down their guns there will be a peace but if the Israelis lay down their guns there will be no more Israel. I agree and cannot understand why the rest of the world cannot see this.It is not the Israelis who are bombing school buses loaded with children--it is the ragheads.

    We are talking about people that want to wipe Israel off the Map. How does the World community respond? Well with their version of world welfare to keep the Palestinian Authority running, that's how.

    It might be a trite old saying, but it is true; good fences make good neighbors.

    I cannot wait until we build our Wall.

    What exactly is wrong with a wall? We must use passports to go from one country to another. This wall is the same thing.

    If it prevents innocent Israelis from being brutally slaughtered by the Palestinians, then good for it. We need one here to keep the illegals out. :)
