Netanyahu: IDF would remain on Jordan - 'Palestine' border

Prime Minister Netanyahu told the recent gathering of Israeli diplomats that the IDF will have to remain along the border between any future 'Palestinian' entity and Jordan to prevent weapons smuggling into Judea and Samaria.
“Iran Is creating a base [in Lebanon] for weapons that are used in areas adjacent to Israel with the intention of attacking Israel," according to Prime Minister Netanyahu. "The problem in Lebanon is not the border. The problem of security is Syria. The same thing is happening in Gaza. The problem is not the border with Gaza….but with the 12 kilometers (eight miles) into Sinai" adjacent to the Philadelphi smugglng route.

He declared that “agreements, signatures and texts have left us with the same problem. We will not have a situation where Judea and Samaria become a third platform for rockets from Iran." The Prime Minister explained that the smuggling of weapons into Judea and Samaria would create a problem far worse than Israel faces on the northern and southern borders.

Preventing arms from entering Judea, Samaria and Gaza is a condition for peace, Prime Minister Netanyahu continued. Without directly calling for an IDF presence in territory that might be part of future PA state, he stated, "I doubt whether anything except a real presence of the State of Israel, of Israeli forces, can accomplish [a halt to importing weapons]. The problem of demilitarization must be resolved effectively and this entails effectively blocking unauthorized entry, first and foremost from the east [of Judea and Samaria], wherever the border is defined.”
Netanyahu specifically rejected the idea of an 'international force' doing the job for the IDF.

The odds of the 'Palestinians' agreeing to any presence of the IDF at their border with Jordan are probably less than none. Maybe it's time to tell President Obumbler, "no we can't."

Once again, Netanyahu is selling out the land of Israel, this time the vast majority of the Jordan Valley.

May he drop dead before his ideas take off.

Chrysler, the problem from without can be resolved from within. This is standard Torah outlook.

Shy Guy, Israel is supposed to trust the world - the same world that remains silent as Iranians are tortured, beaten and shot into submission? THAT world? I'd rather Israel tell them to go to hell. That's what I would do if I was Prime Minister. A Palestinian state is quite simply gambling with Israel's security.

Norman, I don't know how you assumed what you think I wrote. And you should know me enough by now from my posts.

All I said was that the Torah warns us that external enemies are symptomatic of our own internal spiritual failures and misdeeds.

Shy Guy -- I do not understand where the "sell-out" occurs.
This story sounds to me as though the PM rejects the idea of an ineffective (or subverted) international force, insisting on an IDF force, despite it being more difficult to implement.
