The Algemeiner says
that some of Jabotinsky's messages of yesteryear remain quite useful in modern times:
The uncomfortable truth is that the current jihad against Israel is based solely on the fact that Israel’s enemies want the country destroyed. Thus, there is no possibility of a “two-state solution,” until the Palestinians decide to accept a Jewish state. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu clearly believes this, but he cannot say it, because he is facing too much pressure from the outside world.
Jabotinsky was right when he demanded that there must always be a price to pay for terror. He asked a question in 1938 that is eerily as valid today: “Is a situation moral in which one side can commit any crime or murder and the other is forbidden to react?”
It’s as if nothing has changed, and we have not yet learned from history. In a world where Israel is still blamed, what will Netanyahu say when Abbas demands concessions as the price for stopping terror?
A real friend does not demand, let alone ask, that the opposite end of the table forfeit any part of their country, or limit where they can reside and travel. And Jabotinsky was right. A situation where one side's evil is deemed legitimate is dangerous and causes serious damage, to say nothing of fiasco.
