ebron — Frustration is the only
word to describe the feeling one
gets as he tries to be a patriotic
Jew in the Jewish State. We are told that
Arabs, who wish to create a Palestinian
State in place of our Jewish one, are to be
treated as equal citizens. When they take
to the streets and throw rocks and bombs
at us, our soldiers are given orders not to
shoot. Jews who try to defend themselves
are treated as criminals. When Jewish
soldiers and civilians are murdered in
Gaza, our foreign minister, Mr. Peres, sug-
gests that our leaving Gaza might solve the
problem, stupidly not realizing that he has
just signed the death warrant for future
victims of our "peaceful Arab
demonstrators" who would have us leave
all of our contry.
Although I agree with a recent state-
ment made by Assistant Secretary of State
Richard Murphy to the effect that the
Israeli Army is
.. not conducting itself in a
manner consistant with that of other
Western countries, we disagree on what we
mean by it. Murphy sees Israeli soldiers in-
discriminately shooting Arab civilians,
which is the picture presented to the world.
Our boys are sent into violent riot
situations and are told not to shoot.
Naturally rioters are going to increase
their violence until it is checked. Thus,
when backs are against the walls and hails
of rocks, iron poles and molotov cocktails
are upon them, shooting in the air or at
legs is no longer an option. And when a
soldier shoots to save his life under the
most dangerous situations possible, the
world calls for "restraint." As always, the
world is ready to mourn for the Jew, but

when the Jew takes the initiative to pro-
tect his very life, he is always condemned.
Well, thank you, I'll opt for the
condemnation.
As we watch with apprehension the in-
crease of violence in the territories, op-
timistic experts dismiss it as a passing
wave of extremism. Any fool can see that
Arab extremism is constantly rewarded,
and thus encouraged. Is it any wonder that
it increases? The "extremist" Arab
murderer has little to fear and so much to
gain by committing acts of terror against
Jews. And he has unified Arab na-
tionalistic goals to back him up. Children
are raised as murderous thugs in the name
of liberation.
If all the Indians in India would join
with the Indians in America to give the
U.S. back to its legitimate owners, they
would have a far better case than the
fraudulent sons of Arab peasants who
claim rights of a people who never existed!
The disenfranchised Arabs who happen to
have made their homes in Israel were never
a national entity. They were individuals
from surrounding Arab nations who chose
to live in Israel. For this they have a
legitimate right to form yet another Arab
country and disposess the only Jewish
State?
Israel is guilty of having
underestimated the will of our enemies to
destroy us. We built our own Trojan horse
and now wonder how our enemies got in-
side the walls. It was we who closed our
eyes to our 'enemies as we made them
citizens in the hope that they would love
us. Today we can no longer keep our heads
in the sand because our backsides are be-
ing pelted with rocks.
Negotiation is not the answer, because
there is nothing to negotiate. What is call-
