  GENERALS WITH CLAY FEET
  by David Basch
May 1, 2008                          

When I think of the fact that half the generals lose their wars I
become less in awe of them. This is what I thought of when I
recently heard an ex-Israeli general speak here in public.

Generals may be good at equipping and deploying troops to fulfill a
mission defined by others, but they can be duds when they are
responsible for defining the mission. They turn out to have the same
misconceptions and biases against facts as any one else. Consider some
past bloopers.

Yitzchak Rabin went with the policy of squandering Israel's victory
against the deadly PLO in 1993 when he returned the exiled Arafat and
his army of terrorist to become a rival force in the land of Israel,
enabling more deaths from terrorism in a single year in Israel than in
the preceding decade. Then there was Sharon who destroyed the security
of southern Israel by ceding the Gaza salient to the terrorists and
ethnically cleansing Jews. In one shot, he alienated what were once
staunch supporters of Israel, impressed them that helping Israel was
dumping wealth down the tubes, and brought southern Israel under
bombardment that it looks like Israel won't recover from since the
misconceptions of generals imprison and endanger the country.

This was dramatized in the comment of the general that recently spoke
in Connecticut who was proud of what he helped bring about in Gaza. He
wanted Jews in the Diaspora to support the Israel that surrenders to
the enemy and ethnically cleanses its own people in favor of the
enemy. As the general spoke, it became evident that he had the
expectation that Egypt would take control of Gaza and fight Israel's
battle there against the terrorists. But the general shows that he is
under an illusion that Egypt is a friend of Israel. Egypt did plenty
to enable the Gaza terrorists to be supplied with the most dangerous
of weapons and with new terrorist fighters and this situation won't
change. Gaza is the entry point of Muslim armies and weaponry -- a
situation that this general and General Sharon and Olmert too, of
course, brought about -- shooting the toes off themselves and Israel.
What is more, this general and Israeli leaders persist in the illusion
that one day the Arabs will make peace with the Israel they think they
are pushing back and beating and so they continue to make plans to
turn over to these enemies Israel's heartlands in Judea and Samaria --
I held my nose when this general hinted at that in his comment. After
all, 300 million Arabs want Israel destroyed and they think they are
winning and this general wants to make lands available to the vanguard
of this Arab world within the heartland of Israel rather than seeing to
it that gradually these enemies are helped to relocate from the land.
Willing peace with Israel is just not in the Arab dictionary and will
only come from compelling the Arabs to live in peace since the
Muslim-Arab Islam makes destruction of Israel their number one
objective, not Nike sneakers and televisions.

For myself, I have stopped supporting all the Jewish institutions in
the US that supported the Israeli betrayal in Gaza of its people and I
won't resume my support until the situation in Gaza is made right. The
problem is that unimaginative Israeli generals cannot see a solution
to the situation in Gaza they helped bring about since these generals
-- leftist to the core -- are totally dominated by their leftist
mythologies that the Arabs -- like Israeli generals -- are dominated
by material considerations when the Arabs have their eyes on the big
picture, Israel total eradication, which the Israeli general will help
bring about by his tunnel vision.

So what is to be done? The general who spoke was totally defeatest in
Gaza since he thinks that if Israel defeats the Hamas forces in Gaza
and then withdraws, Hamas will just return. Sure, with that kind
of thinking that can be the only outcome. What this general and Olmert
can't conceive is that the next time there is a vicious provocation
from Gaza, Israel should cut off the southern tip of Gaza off from
Egypt,
create a north-south, twenty mile corridor ethnically cleansed of Arabs
-- just do what Israel did to the Jews -- and let the forces in the
remaining interior of Gaza dry up. And I mean that the southern tip
should resume as part of Israel, which is what is was before the stupid
surrender was undertaken, which made things ten times worse . This will
break up Gaza as the Arab invasion route into Israel.

Of course, the generals fail to see the strategic importance and
necessity
of this -- they are too busy waiting for their Arab terrorist friends
to be
bowled over by leftist materialism -- and are fearful of Egyptian
intervention.
But, as I pointed out, such an Israeli action should be taken in the
heat of
battle and, hence, less subject to criticism, the way it was done in
1967,
made right by its success.

The real truth is that Egypt is part of the forces against the
existence of Israel and will never take control of Gaza but will
forever protect the terrorist attackers of Israel -- astonishingly,
this is something this sophisticated general was totally blind to.

Just consider, since 1993, Israel has been in surrender mode to the
Arabs under the tutelage of Israeli generals that are good at
deploying forces but totally ignorant of the real social forces in
operation among the Arabs. What makes these generals so ignorant is
that they are totally dominated by leftist materialism and see the
world through that filter so that they cannot see that what drives the
Arabs is their religious vision of a Jew free Middle East.

You can also see this ignorance operating in President Bush's
Wilsonian illusion of democracy as a universal driving force. Sure,
everyone down deep wants the choice and freedom of democracy, but
before you get that deep you find the Arabs more dominated by their
nationalistic and religious aspirations and hatred of Jews that come
first. That is why Bush's insisstance that Israel surrender her
strategic territories to such Arabs will bring about the destruction
of the underestimated Israeli ally, who will be missed when these
Bushian concepts lead to the collapse of Israel. On the other hand, we
must not underestimate that what blinds Bush, like Israeli generals,
are hidden agendas like appeasing the savage Arab owners of the oil
wells from which many of these leaders tap into for their own wealth,
which colors their thinking.

Boy does Israel need new leadership! Come to think of it, so does the
US if it brings in leaders that think so shallowly and so
self-servingly as Bush!

  MAY ISRAEL AVOID PREEMPTIVE SURRENDER IN 2008
  By Not Agreeing To Self-Destruction as per Orders from the US and the Left.

THE TRUTH MAY NOT ALWAYS BE POPULAR, 
  BUT IT IS STILL THE TRUTH.

  =====================     
OLMERT SURRENDERS TO TERRORISM
  STOPS ANTI-TERRORISM BATTLES
  PLACES HEAD OF ISRAEL ON CHOPPING BLOCK.
  +++++++++
  MAY OLMERT AND HIS EVIL GOVERNMENTS BE PROPERLY TRIED FOR NEGLIGENT AND/OR PRE-MEDITATED HOMICIDE.
  AND THEN CAST INTO THE DUSTBIN OF HISTORY.
  !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  ===============

   
  [Freeman Center Note: Considering the Jewish historical experience with weakness, ALL Jews (and, of course, Israelis) should be armed and able to defend themselves. Any attempt by the government to disarm Jews should be resisted by force. Better to die a free man than to live as a slave. Any attempt by the U.S, Europe or the UN to limit Israeli military freedom of action should be prevented!]
