While Israel continues shipping large amounts of food and water to Palestinian areas, the Olmert regime has cut off supplies of food and water to the returnees to Homesh.
When supplies to Palestinian areas are at all delayed, there is a great international outcry that Israel is starving the Palestinian Arabs, even though Israel has no further reasonable responsibility to continue providing food, water and electricity for people dedicated openly to killing them. There is of course no outcry when Israel denies basic necessities to the returnees to Homesh. Because they are after all the victims of Islamic terrorists, not terrorists. Food and water are considered a human right for terrorists. But not a human right for Jews.
The returnees to Homesh have celebrated the first Brit (circumcision) since the Expulsion by a family which had been expelled from Homesh and lost their father, as well as a Sheva Brachos (seven days after a wedding) under the shadow of preparations by Olmert's police to expel them again.
What is their crime? Are they seizing territory from Hamas? Even that is in doubt, because despite the decades of whining about lost homes and keys and reclaiming Palestine, the Palestinian Arabs have not flocked to settle the communities of the expelled Jews. Instead they've trashed them, used them as dumps and rocket launching pads. They have done everything but actually live there. They have clearly shown that they have no use for the land and the land has no use for them. The land waits for the return of its residents, into whose hands G-d had given it.
The Israeli press, beholden to this corrupt government, screams about the illegalities and crimes of the settlers. What is their crime? Living on land that even Hamas has no use for, except to shell Tel Aviv. Photos from Homesh show a clear view of Tel Aviv 20 miles away. Is Olmert's government and the editors of Haaretz and the Jerusalem Post so eager to have Fatah, Hamas and Islamic Jihad Katuyshas set up there, instead of the homes of Israeli families?
While Israel sends immediate aid to the Palestinian Arab sewage disaster, water and food are cut off for the returnees to Homesh. When Arab terrorists drown in their own filth, Israel runs to help. When the pride of its nation comes to reclaim its land, Olmert sends out a force of thousands to surround them and cut them off. So too may this government be cut off and may we all return to our land, all of our land, forever again.
