The Two Dan Friedman

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 for either kind words or bread and butter.

-Vladimir Jabotinsky, The Iron Wall, 1923

It is not a shift in public opinion which will affect change, but rather the mistakes of the Arabs and their supporters.

-The Lubavitcher Rebbe, letter to Gen. Ariel Sharon, September 5, 1968

No doubt my celebration of Israel’s rightward movement was premature, and I am disappointed. It will manifest itself another day. Still, there’s good news about a dynamic that’s always in place. And it’s the take home message of this election and many that preceded it. The Arabs and Islamics never disappoint. Their preternatural hatred of the Jews is implacable. It’s the one thing we can count on to keep the Jewish state honest.
