A picture worth 1000 words about Israel's strategic vulnerability

The picture above was taken with an ordinary camera on a clear day from Homesh, a town in Samaria whose Jews were expelled by the Sharon-Olmert government in 2005. The town you see off in the distance with the three smokestacks along the coast indicating power plants is Hadera. Hadera is within the 'green line' which means that it's within the 1949 'armistice lines,' and is a part of Israel that supposedly does not interest the 'Palestinians.' Hadera was hit by rockets last summer that were shot by Hezbullah terrorists in Tyre, Lebanon. Tyre is much further away from Hadera than Homesh is. Now, imagine that Hamas and Hezbullah terrorists were sitting on that hilltop in Homesh with the view you have in the picture.

Now do you understand why Israel cannot give away territory?

As you may or may not already be aware, members of the Watcher's Council hold a vote every week on what they consider to be the most link-worthy pieces of writing around... per the Watcher's instructions, I am submitting one of my own posts for consideration in the upcoming nominations process.

Here is the most recent winning council post, here is the most recent winning non-council post, here is the list of results for the latest vote, and here is the initial posting of all the nominees that were voted on.

brilliant post.
I've lost track of many times I've gone up and down c'vishat arbah, and seen those stacks.
Put this way, the rocket threat strikes home.

it´s easy.
you stole the land.
you killed and force the native out of that
you broke and disobeyed the premisses which
Israel was created back in 1948.
so you created your own strategic vulnerablity.

but all land MUST be given back. thiefs and murderers MUST never be promoted! let´s bring
on that "new time" when colonial Israel backs off, fights it own ugly image and fear and stop it´s
hate and apartheid!

can´t wait...
however I know there are some that can.
hence the noneprogress in Israel.
