Israel's dhimmi government bows before Condi Rice
There was another 'gesture
' that Israel's government made today that did not come directly from 'Palestinian' defense minister Ehud Barak. Israel decided to
postpone indefinitely cancel
the opening of a new police station between Jerusalem and Maaleh Adumim. To understand the significance of this particular 'gesture,' it is important to know that Maaleh Adumim
is just a few minutes east of Jerusalem and that it is a fairly large city (population approximately 32,000 as of 2006), that Maaleh Adumim is considered a 'settlement bloc' that Israel 'expects' to retain under any future 'peace settlement' with the 'Palestinians' and that it was widely assumed that Maaleh Adumim was one of the places Bush had in mind when he referred to 'changing realities
' in Judea and Samaria in an April 2004 speech. If Israel intended to keep Maaleh Adumim, it would make no sense to turn over the small strip of land known as E-1 that is between Jerusalem and Maaleh Adumim to the 'Palestinians.' And yet, Rice is adamant that Israel not build there, and today, Israel bowed before her and canceled the opening of even a police station located on E-1.
In order to try to hide its dhimmitude, the Israeli government is variously claiming that the failure to open the police station is 'technical
' and that it has 'unrelated
' to Rice's presence in the region. But the government is referring to the 'delay' as 'indefinite
' and it's pretty clear that means that it's not going to open in the foreseeable future.
I hope Condi didn't jump too high in shock when they kissed her bottom.
