"For Zion's sake I shall not hold my peace, And for Jerusalem's sake I shall not rest."

Russia invades Georgia to pursue its national interest.
Israel does the opposite. It pursues the national interest of its enemies.
The Russians act, while the Israel talk, warn, threaten, scream, leak, and generally are always whining  about what is being done to them.
The number of stupid things Israel has done that harm its citizens is tremendous. Consider:
1. Giving up the oil fields of Sinai
2. Reviving the PLO
3. Giving "so called" palestinians the right to Eretz Yisrael and the Temple Mount
4. Expelling productive good Jews to aid Hamas terrorists
5. Denying human and civil rights to Jews in the Land of Israel
6. Giving Arabs superior rights to Jews in the Land of Israel
7. Accepting "banana republic status" with the USA
8. Refusing to fight terrorism until victory
9. Refusing to destroy our enemies world wide
10. Bowing and stooping to anti-Semites world wide
Read the article below and see Israel\'s stupid strategic policy first hand. Why warn Russia so they can prepare. Surprise them like in 1982 over Syria and Suez Canal in 1970.
Mind you, I love Israel and I feel pain having to write the above.......Bernard
