How to Deal with Gaza: A Letter to PM Netanyahu

This is similar to what I recommended namely, arrange for emigration of Arabs and annex Gaza. Whereas I wanted to get the international community to take it upon themselves to provide destinations for the emigrants to go to and to pay for same, Moshe Feiglin simply wants Israel to give financial inducements to Arabs to leave.  But they still need welcoming destinations.  Secondly I did not offer Blue cards to them.  The Arabs in Jerusalem still have the option to apply for citizenship. I prefer to offer them no alternative to emigration.  I presume, when he offers certain areas adjacent to the Sinai and the sea he means within Gaza.  Works for me. Ted Belman

By Moshe Feiglin To Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu,

The failures of Operation Protective Edge were inherent from the outset, because:

A.  It has no proper and clear goal and;

B.  There is no appropriate moral framework to support our soldiers.

What is required now is for Israel to internalize the fact that Oslo is finished: That this is our country – our country exclusively, including Gaza. There are no two states, and there are no two peoples. There is only one state for one people.
After internalizing this, we need a deep and thorough strategic review: Definition of the enemy, definition of the operational tasks, definition of the strategic goals, and of course, of appropriate necessary war ethics.
1. Definition of the enemy: The strategic enemy is extremist Arab Islam in all its metastases – from Iran to Gaza – which seeks to annihilate Israel in its entirety. The immediate enemy is Hamas. (Not the tunnels and not the rockets – Hamas.)
2.  Definition of the tasks: Conquest of the entire Gaza Strip and elimination of all fighting forces and their supporters.
3.  Definition of the strategic goal: To turn Gaza into Jaffa, a flourishing Israeli city with a minimum number of hostile civilians.
4.  Definition of war ethics: “Woe to the evildoer, and woe to his neighbor”
In light of these four points, Israel must take the following action:

A. The IDF will designate certain open areas on the Sinai border, adjacent to the sea, in which the civilian population will be gathered, far from the built-up areas that are used for rocket launches and tunneling. In these areas, tent encampments will be established, until relevant emigration destinations are determined. Electricity and water supply to the formerly populated areas will be disconnected.
B.  The formerly populated areas will be shelled with maximum fire power. The entire civilian and military infrastructure of Hamas, its means of communication and of logistics, will be destroyed entirely – down to their foundations.
C.  The IDF will divide the Gaza Strip laterally and crosswise, significantly widen the roads, take control of commanding positions, and destroy nests of resistance – if any remain.
D.  Israel will start to locate destination countries and immigration quotas for the refugees from Gaza. Those who wish to emigrate will be given a generous economic support package and will arrive at the receiving countries with significant economic capabilities.
E.  Those who insist on staying, contingent on proof that they have no affiliation with Hamas, will be required to publicly sign a declaration of loyalty to Israel. They will then receive a blue ID card similar to that of the Arabs of East Jerusalem.
F.  When the fighting will end, Israeli law will be extended to cover the entire Gaza Strip. The people expelled from Gush Katif will be invited to return to their towns and villages  and the city of Gaza and its suburbs will be rebuilt as Israeli tourist and commercial cities.
Mr. Prime Minister,
This is a fateful hour of decision in the history of the State of Israel.
All metastases of our enemy, from Iran and Hizballah through ISIS and the Muslim Brotherhood, are gleefully rubbing their hands and preparing themselves for the next round.
I warn that any outcome that is less than what was defined here means encouraging the continued offensive against Israel. Only if Hezbollah will understand how we have dealt with Hamas in the south, it will refrain from launching its 100,000 missiles from the north.
I call on you to adopt the strategy proposed here.
I have no doubt that, like me, the entire Nation of Israel will stand by you with its overwhelming majority – if only you will adopt it.
With Respect and Appreciation

    The Mexicans want a return to pre-1868 borders .The rocket attacks will begin shortly.

  4. honeybee Said:

    Watch your mouth,,,BOYCHICK !!!!!

    It’s not my fault you are occupying Mexicostan from the white River to the Sea!!!

    The Mexicans want a return to pre-1868 borders .The rocket attacks will begin shortly.

  5. Max Said:

    into America does not apply because Mexico is not occupied ( a lie because of Texas,

    Watch your mouth,,,BOYCHICK !!!!!

  6. In that video, Peter Beinart used a typical leftist-Islamofascist canard. He pretended to “hate” Hamas, then proceeded to engage in propagandist arguments that woudl further their cause.

    The is is the trick of saying : “I’m one of you guys” but then he plunges the knife in.

    Another thing , when he said ..no no the analogy of Mexico lobbing rockets into America does not apply because Mexico is not occupied ( a lie because of Texas, California, Arizona, New Mexico) what he was really saying it is therefore alright for Hamas to make rocket attacks on Israeli Civilians because Israel was “occupying” Palestine (ie Israel).
    ….
    This is where he should have been outed and challenged – this is his secret agenda – – if the analogy doe snot apply he then believes it is alright for Hams to launch rockets, He he saying that there is a casus belli and that justifies terrorism

    A short retort to him could be said ” Nothing ever justifies terrorism but you have just stated that you feel terrorism is justified against Israel – therefore you were dishonest when you said you oppose Hamas.

    Peter is totally dishonest in his intention and when these people issue such propaganda their intention and dishonesty must be challenged if not exposed.

  7. Another fallacy of the CNN idiot.
    US in to occupying any Mexico, while Israel is supposedly occupying Gaza.

    Arabs are occupying the land of Israel.
    And US is occupying Texas, California, Arizona, New Mexico.

  8. Well, I don’t know if this is possible.
    But surely would love it to happen.
    As for the blue card:
    I think that just not being connected to Hamas is not enough.
    A person must swear allegiance to the JEWISH STATE before he/she should be allowed permanent residence in the Jewish state.
    Anyone who breaks his/her oath is immediately deported.

  9. Israeli Refugees attributed to BB and Ya’alon

    BB the Pathological Liar at it again. Who still believes that piece of shit? Yamit

    Israel-Hamas talks to open in Cairo after 72-hour ceasefire. Netanyahu faces credibility gap at home

    Even as he spoke, the bulk of Israel’s ground troops were on their way out of the Gaza Strip.

    But he assured the public that they were regrouping and refreshing ranks for a new, offensive formation that would stand ready to cross back in a trice if necessary.

    But already then, the prime minister had quietly conceded to the demands of Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi and US Foreign Secretary John Kerry to withdraw IDF contingents from the Gaza Strip. This was in obedience to Hamas’ precondition for talks, following which Israeli envoys would present themselves in Cairo for indirect negotiations on a long-term accommodation with Hamas through Egyptian intermediaries.

    Israel’s first ghost villages are clearly visible to the enemy and no doubt chalked up on the credit side of the Hamas war ledger.

    Haim Yelin, head of the Eshkol District Council said Monday that 75 percent of the frontline population has moved north. He said he believes the assurances he received from Netanyahu and Ya’alon that the IDF has solved the tunnel threat and would provide the communities with protection against new tunnels. But he said, people are no longer willing to live under the threat of terrorist rocket fire, which they don’t believe has been finally curbed.
    This credibility gap is part of the general unease over the outcome of this long-delayed counter-terror operation. It started out with 86 percent of the population canvassed holding high hopes of curing the festering terrorist woe emanting from the Gaza Strip. But now, Israel’s leaders, no less than Hamas, face a rehabilitation challenge – not just the reconstruction of damaged businesses, farms and buildings, but also of faith in government.

  10. @ XLucid:
    While all your points are valid, at this point, it would be ‘nice’ if we could just place it on a back burner for a whole and deal with it prn ….
    No ‘perfect solution’ can arrive out of a box, it must be tweaked here and there yet le’s not analyze and dissect it to death!

  11. Those who insist on staying, contingent on proof that they have no affiliation with Hamas, will be required to publicly sign a declaration of loyalty to Israel. They will then receive a blue ID card similar to that of the Arabs of East Jerusalem.”

    Moshe Feiglin’s proposal to grant Arab ID card does not take into account all the terror attacks conducted by those Arabs of Jerusalem granted either ID card or Israeli citizenship. Just to mention a few among hundreds of casualties.

    August 4, 2014
    Arab killed 1 Israeli and injured 7 Israelis and overturned a bus with a construction excavator in Jerusalem

    Arab injured 1 soldier in Jerusalem

    July 6, 2014
    15 Arab from Silwan attacked the Diaspora Yeshiva on Mount Zion in Jerusalem hurling rocks at students during their evening meal.

    July 2, 2008
    Arab killed 3 Israelis and injured 30 Israelis in bulldozen attack in Jerusalem.

    March 8, 2008
    Arab killed 8 yeshiva students and wounded 11 students within the Mercaz HaRav massacre.

    Everyday and Each Day
    Thousands of hundreds of rocks attacks on a daily basis in Jerusalem. According to Aryeh King, Jerusalem Councilman, there were more than 300 terror attacks in Jerusalem in July 2014 alone.

    This is exactly the problem of the Israeli leaders who identify themselves as right wingers: they suffer from the same disorder called amnesia.

    Gaza population is no more innocent than Germans. They elected democratically terrorists to govern them. They have to pay for that. None of them should be incorporated into Israel or otherwise benefit from Israel.

  12. I have no doubt that, like me, the entire Nation of Israel will stand by you with its overwhelming majority – if only you will adopt it.

    Very well written, for all intents and purposes, no arguments with any of the points made.
    BUT,
    Is there a plan “B” ?
    (Hint: bn will NOT implement anything)
    If indeed, ‘an overwhelming majority’ is behind such a plan… And there is a leader that advocates such a plan… What would it take to connect the two dots?

  13. Feiglin offers the best option but I fear that Netanyahu will buckle again to U.S. and EU pressure. If the corrupt Jewish establishment in the U.S. would get strongly behind Feiglin they might find gentile support among Americans and in congress. But again I fear that U.S Jewry remains ever confused and cowardly.
