If Israel carries out Olmert's surrender suicide plan

You kind of expected this to happen, but it's still shaking to read it in print:

Hamas leaders have revealed in confidential conversations that if Israel retreats from the West Bank, Hamas will turn on Jordan, whose population is 75 percent Palestinian. In cooperation with the Jordanian Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, leader of Al Qaeda in Iraq, Hamas will strive to bring down the moderate Hashemite dynasty. Such a move will create an uninterrupted jihadi Lebensraum from the Sunni Triangle in Iraq to Qalquiliya next to Tel-Aviv. Hamas, dominating the mountain ranges of Samaria, will be able to strafe and shell the heavily populated Israeli central plane with Qassam and Katyusha rockets and shoot down civilian airplanes at the Ben Gurion International Airport. A faltering Jordan and weakened, bleeding Israel are not in the national interests of the United States. The Hamas mini-state in Gaza has already allowed elements of Al Qaeda and Iran-backed Hizballah to set up shop in Gaza and elsewhere in Hamastan.

But the repercussions of the retreat from the West Bank will not impact only Israel and Jordan alone. Buoyed by success, other Islamist forces, from the Islamist Justice and Development Party of Morocco, which is favored to win the 2007 parliamentary elections, to the Muslim Brotherhood of Egypt, to Al Qaeda of Iraq, are likely to double their efforts. At stake is nothing less than the success of the Islamist project to remove secular and moderate governments throughout the region and replace them by a Shari'a (Islamic Law)-based Califate, a militarized autocratic super-state aimed at waging war against the West. Some Jihadi websites specifically call for reconquering of Spain (“Andaluz”) and Sicily.

The proposed Israeli retreat promoted by Olmert, will also open the battle for Jerusalem, the city which under the Islamist rule will be likely to be depopulated of Christians and Jews just as Bethlehem already has– to the great displeasure of fifty million American Evangelical Christians, the core constituency of the Republican Party, and scores of others around the world, who care about the future of the Holy Land and its capital city. President Bush should send Prime Minister Olmert home, not with a pledge of American support for this reckless scheme, but with a clear understanding that the United States will have no part in this risky business.

Read the whole thing.

Shalom Carl,

Just stumbled on your blog and read the piece you have a link to. I am absolutely flabbergasted!

I think that we need to take unilateral action but there are ways of doing it. Also, we need to start thinking how we are going to cooperate with Jordan.
