Never were elections in the State of Israel more insignificant than the elections that are about to be held on May 29. Indeed, as per usual and true to political form, the two major parties tell voters that these elections are a matter of paramount importance, a matter of life and death. How they lie!! The fact is, there will be no elections this time around. Oh, there will be voting booths and ballots and all other formalities of an election. For sure. But there will not be elections. For the entire concept of the word “elections” means that people “elect” or choose between two ideas or two points of view. In the upcoming elections, this choice does not exist. What it boils down to is two people selling us the same merchandise
Pay attention. While this one talks about “securing peace”, the other speaks of a “peace with security”. While one boldly declares that he will crush the terror, proclaiming: “Shalom with Netanyahu”, the other one, who masterminded the “Shalom” in the first place, declares now: “Israel is strong with Peres”. In short, one babbles about “peace and security” while the other blabbers about “security and peace”, and it gets kind of difficult to know who is who.
The reality is quite simple. While both sides have shouted empty slogans and promises how they will bring the peace and security, they have succeeded in bringing us one thing only: Terror, terror, and more terror.
Let us remember. Four years ago when the Likud was in power and Arab terror was in full swing , Labor promised in their election campaign that they will “take Gaza out of Tel Aviv” – that is, they will uproot the terror. The Israeli electorate bought it and the rest of the story we already know. And today? The same thing, only the sides topsy-turvied! Each one copies the other’s propaganda material from the election year before! If last time side A said they “will take out Gaza from Tel Aviv”, this time side B says “we will crush the terror”. If last time around side A said “corrupt and wretched”, this time side B says, “corrupt and a failure”..
O, they really think we are morons?! Maybe they’re right?!
When it comes down to it, neither Labor nor Likud is willing to adopt the only solution to Arab terror: The uprooting of the Arab enemy amongst us, as the Torah states, “and you shall drive out the inhabitants of the land from before you”. Both parties use the same tired slogans and promise the same garbage. What are the results? Terror and spilled Jewish blood! The Torah already promised this when it said: “but if you will not drive out the inhabitants of the land from before you – than those whom you allow to remain shall be as thorns in your eyes and thickets in your sides and they will distress you in the land wherein you dwell!” Can there be anything more explicit than that?!
It is vitally important to stress this today, when so many people, out of stupidity or out of a desperate need to hang onto illusions, put their heart and soul into returning Likud to power. It isn’t that they forgot – they simply do not want to remember who it was who paved the primrose path to Oslo via Madrid, and who brought upon us the tragedy called autonomy, and whose lack of action turned Israel into a State of Terror.
On the 29th of May, elections will be held between these Siamese twins, at a time when the only one offering a solution will not be allowed to participate in the elections to let the people choose. Because the corrupt “democrats” from above are afraid of you. They are afraid to let you decide for yourselves what is good for you. Because they know that if that way wasable to run in the elections, it would win a huge victory.
The only way is the way of Rabbi Meir Kahane, HY”D, which was “banned” by theKnesset and Supreme Court. But it did not disappear. It lives on. And in the end it will win, because it has to win. It will not disappear because it cannot disappear. Kahane or Arafat. That is the real choice standing before every voter in Israel.
