Baird (D-WA) calls for US strike on Israeli border

What hubris for a US congressman to go to Hamas controlled Gaza and tell students that the US should use military force to break Israel's defense barriers. The congressman, naturally a democrat, believes that Israel is guilty of war crimes and thinks the borders should be open to allow the flood of terrorism to flow unabated into the Jewish State.

Baird also felt compelled to join fellow leftist, Senator John Kerry, on a visit to Gaza after Israel's Operation Cast Lead to meet with Hamas and express sympathy with their plight.

This is tantamount to an Israeli MK from Likud going to Afghanistan after a US military operation to express support for Al Qaida, and then call for the IDF to attack US defense positions on the ground.

Baird is not seeking re-election, but MZ would like to invite him to run for mayor of Gaza City and see how popular he really is with the Islamic masses of Hamas he has such deep sympathy and affection for.

Interesting Debate at Jerusalem Conference

Been awhile, eh? Well, MZ's 43rd birthday seemed as good a time as any to resume posting, so here I am. Hope you forgive my lengthy sabbatical, but time away can really clear the mind sometimes. Special thanks to Nanc for staying in touch while I've been off doing other things.


There was a very interesting debate at the recent Jerusalem Conference in Israel that really caught my attention. The best comments (from an MZ perspective, of course) came from Dr. Aryeh Eldad, MK National Union, who clearly outlined the importance of declaring all the land occupied by Israel since the 6-Day War as Israel's permanent border and declaring Jordan officially the Palestinian State.

What impressed me the most, however, was having the Likud representative, MK Tzipi Hotovely (who is indeed quite hot and lovely) chastise her party leadership for endorsing the Two-State solution within the borders of Israel. She announced her support for declaring a single state while giving citizenship to the PA arabs.

At first glance, this could be seen as a move of weakness, but I see it as a position of strength. Making all the arabs dwelling in Judea and Samaria subjected to the fullest extent of the law according to the Jewish State, with firm borders extending to the Jordan River under the absolute control of the Israeli government, would provide a permanent solution that even the Israel loathing world leaders would likely say is fair.

From this position of strength, Israel would have many enemies within, yes, but they would be easier to police than now, where the Fatah and Hamas terrorist organizations operate completely free and independent of Israeli control.

Even under such an increase in Arab population, Israel would still maintain a majority Jewish population, and with the Law of Jewish return and an increasing Jewish birthrate, Israel would be stronger than ever.
