Hindsight is Always...
It is widely believed that hindsight is always 20/20. Well, unfortunately, that is not the case with some here in Israel. Ha'aretz reports that Deputy Prime Minister, Ehud Olmert has the following to say in commemoration of 10 years since the assassination of Yitzchak Rabin:
"The Oslo agreement had its weaknesses but it was also justified. There is no doubt that it forced Israeli society to self examination that lead to the conclusion that Israel must return to its correct borders and that it should be a Jewish and democratic state," Olmert said.
Ehud, here are the lessons that most rational people have drawn from the "Peace Process":
1) The "Palestinians" seek nothing short of the destruction of the Jewish State of Israel.
2) Don't give them guns.
3) Good will gestures and other concessions only embolden the terrorists.
4) Fences do not make good neighbors (nor do tunnels or by-pass roads).
5) If they say it in English, it's probably not true.
6) A signed agreement with the "Palestinians" isn't even worth the paper it's written on.
7) If we aren't willing to fight terror ourselves, don't expect the "Palestinians" to do it for us.
The list goes on and on, but I will end with this one:
8) "What you see from here, you don't see from there" - dedicated to Ariel Sharon (and Bibi Netanyahu).
