Peace, peace, peace and more talk about peace…
People who want peace act peacefully. If the Arabs want peace then it would not matter who the Israeli prime minister is or whomever their leader is, if they want peace then it will emerge from within them as individuals, communities, and population as a whole before it encounters us. As Baruch Spinoza said:
"Peace is not an absence of war, it is a virtue, a state of mind, a disposition for benevolence, confidence, justice."
If they want peace then justice and good faith first have to emerge from within their homes and society before anyone has to sit down at a negotiation table! As Herbert Clark Hoover wrote:
"Peace is not made at the council table or by treaties, but in the hearts of men."
Additionally, the very notion of talking with those who continue to arm themselves and fight against us is as absurd, as William R. Inge put it:
"It is useless for the sheep to pass resolutions in favor of vegetarianism, while the wolf remains of a different opinion."
The fact that the Arabs voted Hamas into power “democratically” no less, is only evidence that what exists within their hearts is hope for our doom and that within their minds lay the plans for our end. I say that since they have chosen that path that we take no mercy and give them their own just desserts, hard and fast, as Henry Louis Mencken stated:
"Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard."
Since they have decided to act toy around with democracy and made clear what is in their hearts, minds and intentions, and that they have chosen this plan in unison I say: lets give them what they deserve good and hard! Not waste our time and vital energy on more bullshit!
I mean, come on, isn’t this an issue of basic intelligence? Are not the actions and agendas of people like Livni more evidence of the distorted nature of the Israeli psyche?!
Yet our leadership continues to wage both war, wield politics, and design peace like true intellectual pygmies. I suppose it is as the Turkish proverb goes:
"If a man would live in peace he should be blind, deaf, and dumb."
Finally, I fear that Joseph de Maistre was correct in that he wote:
"Every country has the government it deserves."
I fear that if that is the case fortune will favor the Arabs more than it favors us in the long run.
