They are off their Rockets

We are at RAW, which is a backward way to look at war.
Why can’t we just go ahead and knock the living daylights out of those Gaza Arabs.

ARGUMENTS FOR
The barrage of rockets may actually stop.
Israel may regain some self esteem.
The Arabs may want to leave Gaza.
The Right-Wing politicians will become more popular.

ARGUMENTS AGAINST
The barrage of rockets may actually stop and then there is no reason to sell the country in the name of peace.
Israel may regain some self esteem and the pacifist left won’t have a platform.
The Arabs may want to leave Gaza and then there is no-one to get money from the whole world to support the poor Gaza populace, which is used to buy goods from Israel.
The Right-Wing politicians will become more popular.

US Downgrades Israeli Air Safety, Bans New Routes

How many more times must we feel ashamed about the incompetence and greed of the government?
A country which is selling leading edge electronic technology has the knowledge to have the most up-to-date airport control system in the world. Yet due to negligence, greed or incompetence, I am not sure which is the worst, Israel has to suffer the indignity of having its show-piece airport downgraded.

Road Rampage

12/17/08 | by Nosson Halevi [mail] | Categories: Uncategorized

The tragic bus accident on Tuesday near Eilat where 26 people lost their lives highlights a major attitude problem in Israel.
Employers of drivers for buses, taxis and other transportation are completely irresponsible and careless. There seems to be no effective control over this activity so employers don’t seem very perturbed by the reckless performances of their drivers.
How often we read that the perpetrators of these terrible tragedies have a record of multiple offences that should have set off a warning message to any prospective employer.
Heavier sentences, such as compulsory jail sentences should be legislated immediately for all bad drivers and their employers, perhaps this will make our roads safer.

Israeli Occupation

International Herald Tribune - France
... peace, harmony and forgiveness, but also criticized the Israeli occupation and the separation barrier Israel is building in the West Bank. ...

That territory was Jordanian. The Jordanians declared war against us and with Hashem’s help we won.
The borders were changed to allow Israel to live without the threats of daily attacks. Israel even left the Jordanians who lived there alive and even encouraged them to stay.
The Arabs see this as a sign of weakness. They do not have a concept of being kind, being charitable is being weak. They there fore took advantage of our magnanimity and called us "occupiers".
Our tolerance for religious observance by non-Jewish people is again being misconstrued as weakness, lack of dedication to Judaism. Our kindness is always rewarded by a slap in the face.

Pedestrians are Expendable

12/15/08 | by Nosson Halevi [mail] | Categories: Uncategorized

Jerusalem Post Nov 27,2008:In 2007, 433 people were killed in traffic accidents……..Of those, 34 percent were pedestrians, placing Israel high up in the international rankings of pedestrian fatalities.
Generally, drivers are not careful at pedestrian crossings. They stop only at the last moment just in case the person crossing may momentarily hesitate, giving the driver the opportunity to advance quickly. I think we are lucky that the numbers aren’t higher.
The traffic enforcement staff are too busy making easy money for the police issuing parking-tickets and fines for seat-belt infringements. I know one mother who was ticketed because she fastened her seat-belt after starting the engine, even though she had not moved the car.
There are enough unemployed that it is easy to find staff to man pedestrian crossings during peak hours.

Chutzpa used to be a description of a cheeky, mischievous action. When chutzpa is stretched to become stupidly arrogant and detrimental to other, it enters the realm of something outrageous.
