You don't remember his wailing during the last election about "Arabs are voting in droves!!!" How racist is that. Those voting Arabs are Israeli citizens. If I lived in Israel now, I would vote for the Arab bloc. And as to American citizens joining the IDF, that is reserved for immigrants, who can become dual citizens. If they were not Israeli as well as American, they would be treated as mercenaries, which was threatened against kibbutz volunteers as well in 1973 by the Egyptian high command.

I'm not sure those platitudes help with comfort. I have known mourners who just want to yell SHUT UP when they are deeply grieving and someone tries to tell them it is for the best, it is God's will, they should be happy their loved one is in heaven, etc. Sometimes, silence really is golden, and a hug and letting someone cry is best.
They'll have to leave or be slaughtered. Thousands have already gone to Russia, and Australia said its prepared to let in 25,000. One way or another, the gov't is going to take those lands because the rabble demands it. The rabble thinks they'll get richer if they get the land. I doubt it.
And nothing wrong when he forks back off to BJR.??????????????
