Palestinian responds to announcement of settlement freeze

It never fails.  Every time we make a concession, it is immediately followed by terror.

Within hours of PM Netanyahu announcing a ten month moratorium on new constructions permits in Judea and Samaria, a Palestinian terrorist approached and stabbed an Israeli man and women (aged 52 and 49 respectively) who were waiting at a bus stop near Kiryat Arba. 

This attack occurred at the same spot where I wait for the bus on days when Zahava takes the car.

The two Israelis were lightly wounded and evacuated to a Jerusalem hospital after being treated an the scene by medics.  The terrorist tried to flee but was shot by a bystander and is in serious condition.

Our leaders still haven't quite figured out that there is a clear connection between acts of appeasement, which are seen as signs of weakness, and an increase in terror attacks.  Every single time we do anything that can possibly be perceived as weak... Israeli citizens are wounded and/or killed by our partners in peace.

Oslo, Camp David and the disengagement from Gaza were enormous good-will gestures which had enormously negative security consequences for Israel.  Thank G-d Bibi only made a small good will gesture this time or who knows what mayhem might have resulted.

We're freiers.....after being in the Give-Peace-A-Chance crowd for many years (ok, tumtemet, I admit it) I am solidly convinced that after Abbas turned down Olmert's offer of virtually EVERYTHING the PA has been demanding on the grounds that (1) he couldn't say the words "Jewish state" (go read the original Partition resolution, darling) and (2) his puerile and racist insistence that all Jews evacuate wanna-be Palestine but all "Palestinians" (those 4th generation Arab descendants of people who claimed to be from Palestine, including those who weren't but thought UNWRA was a great hand-out) be free to move into Israel and go on the dole here.

We're idiots for playing this game. The Palestinians have absolutely no intention of making peace. They want it all, and always have, and aren't prepared to settle for less than Greater Palestine. It's time our government (the rest of the world, also, but they're blind) wakes up to this.

The headline of the Post proves Aliyah06's point: "Gov't decleares 10-month settlement freeze.......PA: We can't accept any freeze that does not include Jerusalem".

I say, @#$% 'em.

I totally agree with you. Every single time Israel makes yet another suicidal concession, the Palestinian Arabs define it as 'weakness' and realise they're gaining ground, which in turn emboldens them - hence yet another of their attempts at killing innocent Israeli civilians.

Appeasement has never worked, and it will never work. It didn't work when Chamberlain tried it with Hitler, it won't work when Obama tries it with Iran, and it sure as hell won't work when Israel tries it with the Palestinian Arabs.
