Israeli leaders are tripping over themselves with apologies and explanations for daring to announce planned construction in Ramat Shlomo in the presence of US Vice President Joe Biden.
Perhaps it is time to learn from the terrorists, for in Gaza, they are concerned with one thing only, their primary objective, the destruction of the State of Israel, unbothered by political nuances.
Proving the point, a Kassam rocket smashed into a shed on a southern area kibbutz while the vice president was in town. Baruch Hashem there was no injuries or loss of life. The deafening silence however was audible, that absence of protests, the lack of words of criticism or condemnatory statements from the White House, State Department, EU, Britain, France and the UN, all who quickly took their place in line to strike a blow at Israel, to protest the audacity of a sovereign government that plans to build housing units in its capital. The left-wing was equally silent, not wishing to mar the atmosphere of euphoria surrounding the vice president’s condemnation of plans to add Jewish homes to the Jewish capital.
Sadly, the world remains silent, as it does while Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad moves ahead happily towards advancing his weapons of mass destruction agenda; all while the Western world sits in judgment, monitoring Jerusalem’s actions under a magnifying glass.
