Israel’s new Opposition Leader Yair Lapid said “people will die” if National Security Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir is allowed to visit the Temple Mount and called on Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to stop the event.
This is beyond a disgrace.
This is a former Prime Minister, who just left the Prime Minister’s office last week, appeasing the terrorist Hamas organization that threatened Israel with a wave of terror against Israel if Internal Security Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir would go up to the Temple Mount.
This is not leadership. This is fear and weakness that only enables our enemies to continue threatening us with their terror ways.
Leadership is standing up to one’s enemies. Leadership is standing up for your rights. Standing up for your people.
Appeasing enemies is not leadership, it is the weakness that our enemies take advantage of to continue to pursue their violent agenda to ultimately destroy the Jewish state of Israel, as the Hamas charter clearly states.
The Hamas Charter or Covenant of the Islamic Resistance Movement was issued on August 18, 1988. The Charter is a comprehensive manifesto comprised of 36 separate articles, all of which promote the basic Hamas goal of destroying the State of Israel through Jihad (Islamic Holy War).

The reason we are stuck with ongoing terror from our enemies is that the Oslo “peace process” of the 1990s neutered our ability as a people to look at our enemies as enemies. Consequently, it neutered the leadership ability of our political and military leaders to properly provide safety and security to all Israeli citizens.
Ever since Oslo, the IDF prioritizes maintaining as normal a life as possible for our Arab enemies in Judea, Samaria and Gaza instead of prioritizing the lives of Israeli citizens.
The current proud Jewish, nationalist Israeli government that was sworn in ,was voted in specifically to make a change and finally put Israeli lives back as the #1 priority and end the Oslo “peace process” facade, which only brought more war and terror by arming our enemies, but brought no peace.
We hope and pray that our current leaders succeed in doing just that, as they encounter much resistance from the powerful lobby of the left both in Israel and internationally.
