Israel is waking up

This week's march by thousands of Israeli's to Homesh, one of the 21 communities razed by Ariel Sharon's government in August 2005, was a great step forward in reconstituting the collective unity of the Jewish people and the salvation of her legitimacy and sovereignty.

This was another important move forward in Israel's abandonment of defeatism and surrender. But for defeatism to be replaced with a reassertion of Zionist ideals, Caroline Glick explains why Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni who owes her career to her sacrifice of those ideals must also be cast aside. "Although radio and television newscasters were predictably agitating for the IDF to violently remove the demonstrators, their anti-settler prattle came off flat. The thrill was gone."
