As long as the Arabs feel that there is the least hope of getting rid of us, they will refuse to give up this hope in return for either kind words or for bread and butter, because they are not a rabble, but a living people. And when a living people yields in matters of such a vital character it is only when there is no longer any hope of getting rid of us, because they can make no breach in the iron wall.
--The Iron Wall, Vladimir (Ze'ev) Jabotinsky – 1923
[PMW just translates into English what Israel’s enemies say in Arabic. Can any rational person (liberal/leftist Jews excluded) still believe peace is possible with a “living people” like that? Of course, in addition to “kind words and bread and butter,” the Israeli and International Left even threw in a lagniappe – weapons and control of Jewish land. And that hasn’t brought Israel peace, only more war with no end in sight. Chazak! df]
