Some of you still think that peace is possible for Israel in the Middle East. Some of you still believe that if Israel would only engage with or negotiate with its Arab enemies, there is chance for peace. Some of you argue that the roots of the conflict and the anti -Israeli and anti-Jewish terrorism and hatred are the so-called occupation, the settlements, the zealot settlers, the road blocks, poverty and a sense of humiliation and hopelessness among the Arabs, especially the Palestinians.
Some of you still believe that if Israel would only withdraw from the so called occupied territories to the 1967 borders, and a Palestinian state with Jerusalem as a capital would be established, and the Golan Heights would be given away to the Syrians, Israel will at last live in peace with its neighbors.
But the targeting of Jewish kids ages 3, 6 and 8 in Toulouse, France, should remind us that the root of the conflict is extreme Muslim indoctrination to Jihad, violence and hate against Jews.
There is no chance for any true peace in the Middle East for many years to come when several generations of young Arabs and Muslims have already been lost through daily brainwashing to the dark side of civilization, and nothing Israel or the United States will do can bring them back. Similar to Nazism, the central theme of their brainwashing is irrational and obsessive hatred of Jews.
Otherwise how do you explain the fact that the 23-year-old terrorist targeted a Jewish school in Toulouse chasing Miriam, an 8-year-old girl, grabbing her ponytail and shooting her three times in the head? Why did he take the trouble filming, strapping a video to his neck and film himself chasing the kids through the schoolyard shooting at them? Why did he document the execution of Rabbi Jonathan Sandler and his two little boys ages 3 and 5?
Because for the Islamists, like for the Nazis in World War II, Jewish children are not perceived as human beings, but rather as the rodents portrayed in the Nazis propaganda films. Similarly, thousands of sermons, statements, television shows and articles emanating from the Muslim and Arab world liken Jews and Israelis to animals, diseases and the devil, and attributing to them all manner of evil.
For the Islamists, as for the Nazis, the destruction of the Jews and the Jewish state is central to their world ideology and indoctrination of hate.
This brings to mind the historic discussion as to why Hitler devoted so much time, money and manpower in order to murder every Jewish man, woman and child in every country the Nazis occupied. Why, even on the verge of defeat, was the Nazis’ main concern, the hastening of the extermination of the Jews?
And, in the final, grisly parallel with the Nazis, for the Islamist terrorist in Toulouse, just killing Jews was not enough. His victims had to be Jewish children too.
So, what is my solution to the conflict?
I never understood why people believe that every conflict can be solved diplomatically. Many attempts by Israel to find a diplomatic solution have caused further violence and bloodshed. The 1993 Oslo agreement and the Camp David accords of 2000 caused more than 5,000 fatalities and injuries to Israelis. After the unilateral withdrawals of the Israeli army from Gaza and Southern Lebanon, Israeli communities inside Israel were victimized by thousands of rockets and missiles.
Sometimes a military solution is the only solution against evil as it was the only solution against Nazism.
Making Israel stronger than ever militarily and hunting down and targeting the terrorists and their sponsors is the solution. Cease fires, and negotiations, are used by the enemies as a delaying tactic and a period for renewed military buildups and training. Negotiations and withdrawals from territories are perceived in the Middle East as appeasement and weakness and as a motivation to restart the violence.
How much more bloodshed is necessary for people to understand that even if Israel gave away all territory demanded, and even went further and limited its territory only to the city of Tel Aviv, there would still not be peace but a jumpstart and invitation for another war?
