The number one item on any terrorist's Wishlist is weapons. And Rice insured that 700 heavily armed terrorists are to be deployed in Jenin, already the site of one of Israel's bloodiest battles with Fatah Terrorists. And just to insure that the heavy armor will be on their side, the terrorists will also be receiving Russian armored vehicles.
It'll be a tossup whether Fatah's terrorists will be able to use them against Israel, before Hamas seizes them and uses them against Israel.
The second item is course of mobility and penetration.
So Rice has had Israel dismantle roadblocks between Jenin, Tulkarem, Kalkiyah and Ramallah. This will allow terrorists to move more easily through the West Bank and coordinate their operations. This will allow more rockets to be fired from the West Bank and allow terrorist groups from Hamas to Islamic Jihad to the various Fatah groups to rebuild their infrastructure, distribute smuggled weapons, move new recruits into training and carry out new terrorist attacks.
Then Rice had Israel increase the number of travel permits into Israel, so once the the terrorist groups are ready, they can carry out suicide bombing attacks inside Israel itself.
No similar concessions on the ground have of course been required by Rice from Fatah. Contrary to Rice's claims, boosting travel permits and removing roadblocks will not improve anything. Because the reason those roadblocks and travel restrictions were in place to begin with, was because of Arab terrorist attacks.
The blood of anyone who dies in a terrorist attack because of this will be on Rice's hands.
Every time Israel loosens restrictions, terrorist attacks inevitably follow. Israel responds and restores restrictions, which bring the condemnation of the world. This puts us right back in the "Just Let Him Stab You a Little Bit" politics of Henry Kissinger that brought Israel to the brink of destruction in the Yom Kippur War and that is doing the same thing today.
Because the dirty secret of the Cycle of Violence is that it only ends when Israel or its enemies are destroyed. The diplomats have already decided which side they want to see destroyed. Their wishlists are an attempt to see it through to the end.
When speaking of this, one is reminded of the words of Psalm 125.
They that trust in the LORD are as mount Zion, which cannot be moved, but abides forever. As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the LORD surrounds His people, from this time and forever. For the rod of wickedness shall not rest upon the lot of the righteous; that the righteous put not forth their hands unto iniquity. Do good, O LORD, unto the good, and to them that are upright in their hearts. But as for such as turn aside unto their crooked ways, the LORD will lead them away with the workers of iniquity.
Peace be upon Israel.
