I am a self-proclaimed Liberal. I believe in being tolerant. However, like everything else in life, tolerance has a breaking point as well. Today mine was broken. With the murder of Eyal Yifrach, 19, Gilad Shaar, 16, and Naftali Frenkel, 16, I no longer believe a peaceful solution is possible with our Palestinian enemies. Yes, I said enemies. I did not say partners, I did not say neighbors, I did not say counterparts. Just as the Germany that existed between 1933 and 1945 were enemies of not only the Jewish people but the entire civilized world, so too the Arabs in and around Israel have developed into the same opponents of decency not seen since Nazi Germany.
I am by nature, a pacifist. I am no “tough guy”, nor do I ever proclaim to be. However, tolerance and liberalism needs to be saved for human beings who you have differences with, not with animals set on the destruction of anything decent. With that said I wholeheartedly support the harshest of actions. I also will no longer, and urge every human being who believes in what is right to do the same, support any government’s policies that stand in the way of Israel doing what needs to be done.
And now I will make a statement totally removing myself from my Liberal positions. All of you out there, be you anti-Semites who like seeing Jews suffer, residents of civilized nations who thinks it is only the problem of Israel and the Jewish people, or Liberal Americans, Jew and non-Jew alike, listen very carefully. They’re coming for you as well. Like the Nazi sympathizers who thought they were exempt, anyone who supports this cause or does not fight against it will only be useful for as long as they are needed to push their agenda. Once they do, if they can reach you, me, all of us, they will kill us as well.
To President Obama I say this. At best you are exhibiting a similarity to Neville Chamberlain, at worst you’ve picked the wrong side. Either way you’ve got it wrong. You want a legacy Mr. President? Try using your powers as leader of the Free World to keep it free. If nothing else please stay out of Israel’s way.
Sadly I now feel that the slogan “Bring back out Boys” needs to be changed to “Avenge our Boys”.

Thank G-d, you have received a dose of reality stronger than the idiocies of liberal philosophy. Welcome to the real world.

I too is, or was, a liberal. I was always somewhat hardline about Israel, but still, mostly, a liberal. But you have stated very well what has to happen next.
