All in the Family featured the curmudgeonly Archie Bunker. Archie was television’s most famous grouch, blunt, blustering, straightforward and untouched by the PC crowd. He was the archetype of the conservative male. Michael desprately tried to reeducate him, but he persisted in his breviloquence.

Looking back at the last 40 years, we realize: ARCHIE WAS RIGHT!


Land for Peace Will not Work

The United States has been advancing the wrong agenda in Israel for several decades. There is a commonly accepted position that there can be peace in the Middle East if only the uprooted Palestinians had there own country. To help bring this about the US has helped facilitate several rounds of peace talks and pressured Israel to give up land for an end to terror attacks.

In a speech at Duke University, Brigitte Gabriel, a Lebanese national clarified the situation along the

“They blame suicide bombing on "desperation of occupation." Let me tell you the truth. The first major terror bombing committed by Arabs against the Jewish state occurred ten weeks before Israel even became independent.

On Sunday morning, February 22, 1948, in anticipation of Israel's independence, a triple truck bomb was detonated by Arab terrorists on Ben Yehuda Street, in what was then the Jewish section of Jerusalem. Fifty-four people were killed, and hundreds were wounded. Thus, it is obvious that Arab terrorism is caused not by the "desperation" of "occupation" but by the VERY THOUGHT of a Jewish state.”

I believe that the United States and our policy of benevolent meddling has done more harm than good in the Middle East, especially when it comes to Israel. The Muslims believe, as a centuries old doctrine, that they are to “kill Jews wherever you find them”. Yet the US believes that secular solutions can be found to a religious hatred. So as Israel’s biggest arms supplier, we persuade them to negotiate away key elements needed for their security, in hopes that fifthly lucre will pay off religious fanatics.

We are wrong. The only currency that will buy peace and security for
Israel is complete victory. Every time we have restrained the Israel’s hand, we have snatched defeat from the jaws of victory and prolonged the conflict for another generation. Israel must press its advantage over Hezbollah and utterly defeat them. They are winning and must not stop short of the goal.

If we want peace in the region, we need to let the Israelis win, and let them completely conquer their foes. Of course we could follow the UN plan for peace and help the Muslims win and wipe Israel from the face of the earth.

Until one side is victorious there will be no peace.
