We know—never mind the number—we know what Olmert and his minions are up to. We know they would rather be ruled by Arabs than by real Jews, faithful Jews, Jews of the Covenant. We know about the double treachery of the Olmerts, the Baraks, the Livnis, the Tamirs, and the other Peresites who hate that Covenant.
We know why they have given away Jewish land to our enemies, why they refrain from destroying our enemies, why they have emasculated our army, why they have sapped the will of our people to prevent the impending disaster. They do not want the Jewish people to rise, rebel, and eliminate the enemy within—Israel’s own government!
They have anesthetized the Jewish people in the name of “peace.” They have stupefied the Jewish people in the name of “democracy.” They have murdered the Jewish people’s moral outrage by negotiating with Arab Jew-killers. They have bemused the people with lies.
Meanwhile, they have enriched themselves. They have robbed the public treasury. They have rewarded themselves with high salaries, perks, and privileges. They have despoiled and debased the people. They have transformed the people into consumers. Lovers of Eretz Yisrael have become lovers of Malls and Mammon.
Jeremiah: “Every one is greedy for gain … Every one dealeth falsely … Saying ‘Peace, peace’ when there is no peace.”
Do the Israel’s ruling elites cry “peace, peace” because they regard Israel’s situation as hopeless? Do they cry “peace, peace” to calm rather than excite the people, lest the people rise up and throw these Judenraats out of power?
Hearing the words “peace, peace” day after day, year after year: Is this why the people do not repent or pray for salvation?
Day after day, year after year, the word “democracy, democracy” dinned into their minds: Is this why the people do not rise up and throw the scoundrels out and establish a decent government, one that will prepare for war or try to save Israel by whatever means possible?
“Hark! A report, behold it cometh,
And a great commotion out of the north country,
To make the cities of Judah desolate,
A dwelling-place for jackals.”
