A Voice from Hebron -- January 12, 1999
Shimon Peres actually believes that he graduated from the post
of Prime Minister of Israel to the Prince of World Peace. He opened
his Peace Center which he humbly named after himself, and he has
begun a herculean effort to raise billions of dollars to give
to the PLO to make peace. His assertion is that Arab terrorists
will stop murdering Jews and give up on their dream to destroy
Israel if they are given good jobs.
Were Peres not a former Prime Minister of Israel his efforts would
be comical. But because of his connections with world leaders
resulting from his former position, this man is a genuine menace
to the Jewish State. As a private individual Shimon Peres, like
any citizen, has the right to express his opinion. But when he
abuses his former credentials and presents himself to world leaders
as an extrapolitical entity representing a pseudo official Israeli
position which places itself above the government of Israel he
is overtly undermining his own government. Peres has set himself
up as some kind of ambassador of peace by abusing his reputation
as a former Prime Minister. He is literally conducting foreign
relations independently of the Israeli government and betraying
the Jewish state by so doing.
It is amazing that no judicial body in Israel seems to notice
that Mr. Peres is undermining Israeli foreign relations under
the guise of innocently promoting peace. How is it that he can
host leaders of over a hundred foreign nations as if he were still
representing the Israeli government without as much as a protest
from government sources? Doesn't anyone notice that this man is
openly betraying his country before the nations of the world?
Doesn't anyone in this country care that the man who was voted
out of office for creating the horror of Oslo is being allowed
to continue his efforts to help our enemies destroy the Jewish
State without as much as a protest? Peres should be tried for
treason rather than be extended the dignity of a pseudo ambassador.
This former head of the Jewish State is openly acting as Yasir
Arafat's personal political advisor! What greater betrayal of
one's country can there be than for a former head of state to
openly counsel our enemies on how to negotiate our self destruction?
He was seen on international television broadcasts addressing
the PLO parliament in Ramallah and assuring the PLO that he will
personally help them achieve statehood! He was clearly giving
them advice as to how best they could achieve this goal. If this
is not enough to charge Shimon Peres with high treason, I cannot
imagine what else would be.
Israeli elections are around the corner. We have numerous candidates
who feel that they are qualified to become the next Prime Minister.
Is it not a wonder that not even one of these candidates even
addressed the treasonous behavior of a former Prime Minister?
Should we not expect at least some of them to demand that criminal
charges be issued against him? Nothing? All we hear is the deafening
silence of lemmings marching to their selfdestruction with smiles
on their faces and sweet words about a nonexistent peace.
The Jewish people are totally bereft of leadership. Netanyahu,
our most eloquent politician and alleged leader of the right,
has entangled himself in a web of confusion of his own making
which has seen him not only fail to stop Oslo, but to enhance
the process of our self destruction. It seems that every one of
our potential leaders feels the need to accept the path of self
destruction as the only one we have to take. Why can we not find
one contender for leadership who has the courage to stand up and
demand that we take back our homeland from our enemies? Why can
no one muster the courage to openly declare Oslo an act of treason
which must be immediately undone? Why can no one seem to remember
that Arafat is a murderer who deserves to be executed and his
army destroyed? And why is Shimon Peres permitted to conduct official
acts of high treason without as much as an objection from anyone?
This is why we do not have peace. We are being lead by fools who
are actively participating in our self destruction. But, what
is worse, no one is objecting. When students felt that their tuition
costs were too high they took to the streets and willingly faced
police batons and arrest in order to make their case. They went
on hunger strikes. How then is it conceivable for the people of
Israel to complacently stand by and watch our leaders give away
our homeland for which so many of our sons gave their life blood
Where are the protests? Why is Shimon's Peace Center not under
siege day and night by Jews who demand that he not be given permission
to represent the Jewish State as the Prince of Peace, or in any
other capacity? Why are no charges brought against this traitor
by anyone? Why are we whining about what Arafat may or may not
declare next May? Can't we see that, defacto, we have already
permitted him to establish his state? Why is there no serious
discussion about dismantling the PLO state which already exists?
Why is there no contender for leadership who has the courage to
just be a Jewish leader?
I really want to vote on May 17th. But it seems to me that, as
of now, there is no contender who offers leadership. Not one candidate
seems to care that we are on the path to self destruction. Only
when this fact is recognized will there be hope to turn things
around. I am looking and I am listening. What I see and hear is
Shimon Peres ignoring democracy and conducting a foreign policy
of treason with impunity. When the people of Israel watch their
leaders kissing murderers. . .when they see former leaders openly
betraying their country in the name of "peace" without
as much as a protest, then they should understand why we suffer
as a nation. When one sleeps with dogs he should not be surprised
to wake up with fleas.
