    Peace is good. However, Israel has no moral justification to exist besides historical reasons. If Israel gives up historical justification for its existence, then all accusations of imperialism become very true. To physically give up the Western wall and the old city of Jerusalem, would de-facto mean Israel relinquish all historical justifications for its existence. This goes well with the left-wing dream of a non-Jewish democratic state. Such a state of Israel would certainly cancel the (admittedly racist) law of return. This would essentially means that worldwide Jews will not have a state of Israel like today, and the "wandering Jew" will return. However, the world around us is not secular-democratic. It is dangerous for the Jews to give up Israel. History abounds with periods of relative well-being for Jews in the diaspora followed by very bad times. It is also quite probable that the mere existence of Israel, is one reason for this period of relative well being of Jews abroad. The ease by which the left is betting on the good future of Jews in the diaspora by giving up the state of Israel, is astonishing, especially in view of Jewish history. From BHO's Cairo speech, it clearly emerges that he views himself as the international leader of Islam. His perspective goes much beyond some hills in Judea and Samaria. We should ask ourselves whether he is the man we trust to monitor these talks today.
