Find a post of mine where I have come out completely against the Security Fence. I am critical of some aspects of its construction (as is the Israeli Supreme Court for what it is worth), but I take no issue with the project on a large scale. I've also made it very clear I'm thankful for the opportunities that currently exist in Israel at this moment in time, because they certainly didn't exist in the United States when I made the decision to take my current job.
Well let me tell you something. Gaza is now Judenrein; see the peace it's bought the people in southern Israel? Are they not "Settlers" in your view? Ask any Arab. When the West Bank is Judenrein, your last "barrier beach" will be washed away and the enemies of Israel will start on the pre-1967 land.
Again, please find the posts where I maintain a view contrary to this.
you think the problem is that Jews aren't liberal enough
This isn't about liberalism, it is about upholding Jewish values and being a light onto the nations. Israel isn't succeeding in some regards, whether you like it or not.
So do I see settlement in Juda and Samaria as a good idea? No. But what I DON'T feel I have standing to do is it sit back and tells Jews anywhere: "You can't live where you want. Not because it's dangerous, but because other Jews find you inconvenient."
Fair enough, but that isn't what you were writing. And I've posted plenty of op-ed pieces, especially after the Gaza flotilla incident, to this board making the point that the Jewish people will not voluntarily commit suicide to please the international community.
