In Pierke Avot (Ethic of the Fathers) Hillel teaches: “In a place where there are no men, strive to be a man.”
Bibi Netanyahu won a resounding victory over the Israeli left and Barack Obama by paying heed to the great sage Hillel’s teaching. Bibi is a man in a world that is awash in eunuchs.
In saying that he does not support the creation of a Palestinian state, Bibi is stating what all Israelis have known ever since the disastrous surrender of Gaza to the IslamoNazis who call themselves Palestinians. Yes, there are some who cling to the fantasy of a two-state solution, but 12% of Americans believe that Elvis is still alive. We should treat this marginal group of two-state fantasists with the compassion we reserve for the mentally ill Elvis clingers.
Besides, there is a Pal state: Gaza is the ultimate Palstate; a terrorist reichlet dedicated to the eradication of the Jewish state and the Jewish people. This goal is enshrined in the Hamas charter of 1968.
When, a few years ago, Bibi said that he believed in a two-state solution, he was trying to garner political favor with President Barack Obama. But since then, Bibi has come to understand that Obama is a functional anti-Semite who views the Jewish state as a neocolonial outpost oppressing the poor folks of Palestine.
It should also be pointed out that the PalNazis also gave lip service to a two-state solution when it served their interests. In truth, they have no interest in a two-state solution. They are only interested in a Final Solution for the Jewish State.
Obama will now count on the Jew-haters of the UN to slash and burn at the borders and the heart of the Jewish State. But Israel is filled with courageous men and women who have internalized Hillel’s teaching.
Now, let’s turn to some still photos that should enliven our weekend.
