I can't bear to watch the news or read the paper

Watching the evacuation of the Gaza settlements is too painful for me to watch. I can't stand to see people made homeless by the terrorists who have vowed to kill ever Jew on the earth. I just don't get it. I understand that it is necessary to try and execute some kind of peace between the "Palestinians" and the Israelis. However, to make people leave their homes, their communities, their synagogues, their schools, their families, with absolutely no guarantee whatsoever of peace, or even of the terrorists promising to stop the senseless assinations of innocent Jews. The PA is a corrupt government that cannot even keep it's own streets clean or it's people employed. They expect that Israel should keep their people employed, and should keep them fed and healthy. But at the same time, they want to kill the Israelis. It makes no sense at all.

Watching the faces of the settlers pushed out of their homes, seeing the IDF soldiers in tears knowing what they are doing is wrong, and yet it still continues unabated. Sharon has turned against his own people in allowing this to happen.

Why should the homes, the communities, the shuls that the settlers worked so hard to build be left to a bunch of people not wanted anywhere in the world? Why should they get the gifts of homes, of community buildings, of schools. I think every building should be destroyed. If they want the land, let them have it. It's nothing but inhospitable sand anyhow. But they don't deserve one single brick or block provided by the Jewish settlers they are trying to anihilate. Not one brick.

People wonder why the security fence is going up. To protect the innocent from the fanatic suicide bombers. It's not rocket science. Keeping them out of the country has already lowered the number of senseless deaths, and that's with the wall nowhere near finished. I love the idea of the wall, both to give the Israelis the sense of security they no longer have, and to ensure that the "Palestinians" stay the hell out of Israel. If they want jobs, let them provide for themselves. They wanted their own country, heck, give it to them. Piles and piles of sand.

And in the meantime, Israel should provide new homes, new communities for the settlers who have lost everything. It's only right.

Oh, dear merciful heavens, that last image, of the man taking down his mezzuzah...I can't stand it.

Thank you for widening my world-view today. It's not like I didn't know, but it's not like I gave it a lot of thought, either. Thank you.
