AH! At last! It had to happen sooner or later, like having infinity of monkeys picking away at typewriters, until eventually one of them types out ‘Hamlet’.
What happened? The Arab George Mitchell, the Community Organizer’s man in the Middle East, spoke the truth.
Here’s what he said: “The US is determined to forge an agreement between Israel and the Arab world.”
You got it, George! “Forge” is precisely the right word. In spite of yourself, you spoke the truth.
One meaning of the word ‘forge’ is to create or build. But ‘forge’ has another meaning, too: to falsify, counterfeit or fake.
Crooks ‘forge’ checks, cheaters ‘forge’ documents – they fake copies, trying to fool the gullible into believing they have the real thing.
There won’t be any ‘peace’ with Syria for a long time – unless it’s of the ‘forged’ variety.
Don’t forget that Syria directly attacked Israel three times -- 1948, 1967 and 1973 –each time doing their utmost to wipe Israel off the face of the earth.
Between 1949 and 1967 – when Israel finally drove the Syrians out of the Golan -- Syria used the area to shoot and bomb civilian Jews going about their business farming and fishing. Since then, Syria has remained an active partner in the unholy triumvirate of Iran-Hezbollah, Islamic Jihad, and Hamas group of terrorists. Syria has never accepted UN Security Council Resolution 242 recognizing Israel’s existence.
So when the Community Organizer & Co. sets out to “forge” an agreement between Israel and its long-time nemesis, what do you think he has in mind?
Could it be that the Community Organizer plans to ‘falsify, counterfeit or fake’ a peace agreement – ‘peace’ in terms of the lack of opposition? The ‘peace’ of the grave for Israel?
Methinks George Mitchell speaketh with a forked tongue.
