Ehud Barak surrenders to terror again

The more things change, the more they stay the same. Defenseless defense minister Ehud Barak has surrendered to terror again.

On Tuesday, Barack canceled a scheduled visit to Joseph's tomb by MK's from the Land of Israel lobby. The visit was to have marked the end of the Shloshim (30-day mourning period) for Ben Yosef Livnat HY"D (may God avenge his blood), who was murdered by 'Palestinian policemen' outside the tomb during Passover. It was to have been the first visit to the tomb by Jews during the day - and not like thieves in the night - since an IDF soldier was left to bleed to death at the tomb on Ehud Barak's orders rather than confronting 'Palestinian' rioters in 2000. The reason that was given for the cancellation was fear of 'Palestinian' violence.
MKs Ze’ev Elkin and Aryeh Eldad, who head the Land of Israel Lobby, responded with derision to the decision. “Defense Minister Barak and the defense establishment have proven that they cannot stand behind their words and enable a visit to the Tomb of Joseph on the 30th day after a PA policeman murdered Ben Yosef Livnat there,” the stated. Noting that the Tomb of Joseph was supposed to be in Israeli control according to the Oslo Accords. They called the decision “a surrender to the terror threats of the PA, which incited the PA public to violently oppose the visit.”

Political sources attacked Judea and Samaria Division Commander Nitzan Alon, who they said had been “trying to torpedo the visit from day one.”
It's time for the cowardly Ehud Barak to go home. Permanently.
