Do You Really Want to Kick Me Out of My Home?

For the few people who still think Olmert's plan of "convergence" is a good idea, check out this eye-opening article in Haaretz.

It seems that the Palestinians are really impressed with Nasrallah's success using missiles against Israel. They are drooling over the possibility of acquiring some of their own, and one is quoted as saying that if they get them they "can fire missiles at Gilo instead of bullets".

My settlement overlooks the central coast, and I can see the Azrieli towers in Tel-Aviv and the ocean when the pollution is not too bad. I shudder to think of terrorists standing in my backyard and launching missiles at Tel-Aviv, but that is what will happen if the country loses its collective mind and makes me leave my home - for the promise of peace. Oops, wait a minute, this is supposed to be unilateral - so there isn't even that.

If nothing else, this current war should teach everyone that we have to hang on to Judea and Samaria - permanently.

Last week, my husband and I were in Ramat HaSharon visiting with Chiloni friends of ours. We were planning on spending the night, but at 10:30 our hostess volunteers our other friend (also Chiloni) to drive us home.

Our hostess had been to the Yishuv a month before, her first time over the OMGGreenLine!!! ever. For the driver, it would be her first time.

The drive took 40 minutes and the only reason it took that long was because the driver had never gone this route, it was dark, and the roads are very twisty.

She was shocked. They were both shocked. They couldn't believe how close The Settlements are to the city centers.

So many, who live in the larger cities really have no clue as to how close we really are. That we're the buffer. That if it weren't for us, the Kassams would be raining on Tel Aviv, Netnaya, Herzeliya...

you're so right. ever since we started giving away land (in exchange for more terrorism?)i've found it extremely upsetting. you folks really are on the front lines. why olmert hasn't learned from giving away gush katif is beyond me. is it possible that he has trouble realizing how this current war is related to this giving away of land? i have tried so hard since this whole war began not to publically criticize olmert and figuring that of course, he won't give anything else away, since it's obvious that giving land away doesn't help the situation. if there's anything that we can do over here to protest olmert's decision, please post. in the meanwhile, we're looking out and definitely on your side.

Westbankmama-
I am glad you are posting to your blog again. I am in NYC and you and your blog are my only links to Israel-to people actually reporting the news from inside Israel.
Please stay strong. The news you provide here is necessary to all.
(and please stay well. My heat, thoughts, and prayers are with you and your family and your neighbors).

Amen, WBM. Your nightmare scenario could come true if we hand over yet MORE land to those who want to kill us.

It hasn't worked too well for us so far- someone must make Olmert see that.

It will become true... there was this article - either on Arutz7 or Jpost which states that the Palestinians are seeing how much more effective missiles and rockets are than bullets and stones.

How effective a buffer are the settlements when longer-range missiles can fly right over them and hit central Israel? There's no question that places like Alfei Menashe (where I live) would be great for firing short-range "stuff" at the coastal plain; but those weapons, like Kassams, aren't the real problem. Once missiles with a range of 40 kilometers or more are freely available (and they likely will be), what good will a 10- or 20-kilometer-wide buffer zone be?
