The real question is whether we should give up historical Jerusalem, together with all our historical places, and build a secular state without any special connection with Jews or Judaism. - Comment - Israel News | Haaretz Daily Newspaper

    To put it as "peace is better than war" is so misleading. We are not being asked to give up some hills in Judea and Samaria. Islamic BHO simply promised to deliver Jerusalem to the Arabs. Just go and read his Cairo speech. Although in all Western nations, it is declared that religion is separated from state, this separation fails to be true. Europe still teach their kids in all elementary schools the fabricated story that Jews killed Jesus. It is tempting to say Israel should resolve the contradiction "Jewish-Democracy" and separate itself from Judaism. But the world around us is not secular nor democratic. If the Jewish people renounces the state of Israel and goes back to wander in the Diaspora, antisemitism will certainly reappear. The left-wing promise "give up that little hill and there will be peace" is a mirage.
