The Third Intifada (Blood Doesn't Lie)

Posted on the 19 November 2014 by Mikelumish @IsraelThrives
bloodI am getting more than a little tired of constantly having to "absorb" and react to this constant Arab-Muslim violence against my fellow Jews.
Many people think that we have it coming for the "Occupation" but there is no occupation.
The word is virtually meaningless.  Israel "occupies" Israel like France "occupies" France.
Israel "occupies" Israel like I "occupy" my office.
This is what David Horovitz of the Times of Israel, a moderate by anyone's measure, has to say:
Because the final thing that has to be put in writing, even on a horrible, evil day like this, when the fingers loathe the necessity to tap the keyboard, is that it’s not going to work. Palestinian terrorists, and those who incite them and support them, should know: We are not going to be shot and stabbed and bludgeoned out of here by your brutality and the false justifications you invoke to legitimate it.
We stood firm during year upon year of Second Intifada terrorism, when you were blowing up our buses, malls, restaurants and supermarkets, and pragmatism could have dictated that we do what the terrorism was designed to make us do: flee. We do not insist on maintaining our majority Jewish state to the exclusion of your rights. Anything but. We seek co-existence. But your rights cannot be achieved by denying us ours.
For this is the homeland of the Jewish nation, the only place we have ever been sovereign or sought sovereignty. And what needs writing and saying, most especially on a terrible day like today, is that we will not be driven from it.
 Weakness breeds contempt.
I do not have much faith that the Netanyahu government will take the measures necessary to crack down on these insidious, vicious thugs.   The west, after all, finances these thugs and Netanyahu's ability to stand up to Obama and the EU is limited as we have seen over the last few years with these humiliating and futile gestures, like the release of Jewish murderers from Israeli prisons who are then hailed as heroes in Ramallah and Gaza City.
My prediction is that the government of Israel will vacillate because precisely what action should be taken is open to serious question and because however much Arabs seek to murder Jews within our historical homeland the Obama administration demands "restraint."  This is the president's way of telling the Jewish people that we actually have no rights to self-defense and that if Israel wishes to remain in the good graces of the United States it better heel, boy.
In other words, Obama and the EU and the UN and the western-left, as a whole, expects that Jews should get kicked in the face and take it.  If Israel dares to stand up for itself, as we see time and again, they will scream from the hillsides about "genocide" and "collective punishment" and how the Jews are the "new Nazis" and so forth and so on.  I can write the damn script because I have read it before and more than once.
Make no mistake, this is the Third Intifada.  The Third Terror War.  It was questionable for awhile if there was going to be a third one, but here it is.  Blood doesn't lie.
The only question is, what is to be done about it?  I certainly do not envy Benjamin Netanyahu.  The Jewish-Israeli street is going to demand action, but the rest of the international community - with Barack Obama leading from behind - will push in the opposite direction.  Bibi is thus trapped between the proverbial rock and a hard place.
Given the history of his administration I predict he will take half-measures and satisfy no one.  Much of the Israeli public will see him as weak and the international left will paint him as a savage.
