Israel’s leaders have a tough mission to see that Israel survives. To do this they must remain strong in face of an Arab world that wants to destroy them. They would like to let the Palestinians come across the border to work, play and visit. An open border would benefit both sides. With Hamas and other neighboring groups not recognizing Israel’s right to exist, who can they trust? The safety of the people is mandatory. Unless the Arabs stop discriminating against the Jews, Israel must stand firm.
