Is a yiddish expression which can basically be translated as "the bottom line" or "if push comes to shove" Right now it does not matter if Israel exists in the area it holds now or if it would be drawn back to pre-1967 borders. Israel is a craw in the throught of Islam and the religion of peace wants Israel GONE. You Americans need to choose who in the long run is going to prove to be the best asset in the Middle East. Israel is not going away. The size of the country will be determined in a true peace with her neighbors or a continuous battle of her existence. You can stay with Israel as her ally or you can take your money and run....and I am not referring to your tax dollars.... it is a figure of speech. We as a people will not be thrown into pyres or ovens anymore.
