No We Can’t!



Written by an Israeli father:
March 27, 2010 Avi Ifergan, father of Alma (5), Shira, (3), Netta (1). Rehovot, Israel

Dear Mr. President,

Earlier this month, your Secretary of State told a forum of Jewish leaders that ‘sometimes friends need to tell each other the hard truth’.


Well Mr. President, allow me, on behalf of my people, to return the courtesy. You have always been rhetorically supportive of Israel, but the in-congruence of your actions in the first year of your presidency have left us Israelis, and Jews worldwide, scratching their heads in bewilderment. Mr. President, here’s the hard truth from an Israeli father of 3 daughters, under the age of 6.

No we can’t take any chances when it comes to the physical security of our land, our people or my girls. There exists no room for error. Security is the primary priority. You see, we learn from our history, and it teaches us a simple truth:

No we can’t count on the promises or protection of other nations when our people face an existential threat. The world watched, immovable, as we were slaughtered by the Nazis; In every decade of Israel ’s existence, its neighbors, or the Palestinians waged war on us, and the world watched in relative silence. In the years after the so-called Oslo Peace Treaty, the world remained silent as Israelis faced hundreds of Palestinian suicide bombings, stabbings, drive-by shootings, and kidnappings. The world did however feel free to openly criticize us when we set up check posts and built a security fence to protect ourselves.


No we can’t understand how, in 2006, when over 4,000 Hezbollah missiles rained down on a third of the Israeli population, the leaders of the world found it important to criticize Israel ’s military reaction. Similarly we read their criticisms that were splashed across the headlines of the global media during Operation Cast Lead in Gaza in 2008. They remained silent during the preceding 6 years that the Kassam rockets from Gaza forced Israel ’s Southern population to sleep in bomb shelters, and did not commend Israel ’s military restraint. Of course, that changed as the Israeli military went into Gaza to locate and destroy the Hamas rocket launchers.


No we can’t believe that you would expect your governments to react any differently, if you and your children were faced with the similar threats.


No we can’t stomach the thought of a holocaust-denying, Hezbollah- and Hamas-funding Iranian President, who in the same breath openly states that his intentions are for Iran to achieve nuclear capabilities, and for the destruction of the ‘Zionist entity’.

No we can’t imagine you doing anything more than proposing more painful sanctions on Iran – and what do you call it – ‘containment’? This is where he ends up getting the nuclear weapons he seeks, right?

No we can’t accept a divided Jerusalem . Jerusalem is the eternal capital of Israel , and of the Jewish people. It is not ‘the third holiest city’, as it is for the Moslems. It is the only holy city of the Jewish people. It has been so for over 2,000 years. Since coming under Israeli sovereignty all religions have been able to visit and practice openly and freely. Oh – and you should know that the ‘Waqf’, those Palestinians who control the Temple Mount in Jerusalem , do not allow any other religions, Jew or Christian, to pray there. I even hear that swaying or the silent moving of the lips is forbidden.


So, no we can’t have friends dictating to us where in Jerusalem we can or cannot build – or feeling insulted when we do as we please in our own land.

No we can’t believe that giving the Palestinian people a land of their own is such a high priority on your foreign policy agenda. Considering their civil rights and terrorist track-record, and the growing influence of Hamas as the likely ruling party. Mr. President, did you know that when the Palestinian Authority came to power in 1994, the first piece of legislation that it passed was the death penalty for any Palestinian who sells land to Jews. Over 100 Palestinians have died, under sentence or extra-judicially, for such sales in the last 15 years. Is this the ‘two-state solution’ that you imagine?

No we can’t comprehend why you would spend the first year of your presidency hugging, bowing and warming to those shining leaders of freedom and democracy Venezuela’s Chavez, King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia, or Mubarak of Egypt. I know you’re aware of the brutality and lack of freedoms in such non-democracies – the beheadings, the inability of a woman to bear witness in court, or to simply drive, the lack of tolerance when it comes to people who are different – be it culture, religion, or sexual orientation.


And No we can’t understand why ,in Israel , where the opposite is true, where Arabs enjoy more freedoms than in any Arab country in the world – freedoms of speech and expression, the press, religion, tolerance to the gay and lesbian community, gender equality, you choose to make a big deal about Jews building in their holiest city – Jerusalem ? We’re an easy target, we know, but please, how about finding something more substantial to make an issue of – and about a non-democracy.

No we can’t fathom why on earth you don’t get us Israelis yet. We Israelis and our governments have repeatedly demonstrated an unwavering commitment to peace, and a willingness to pay a high price for it. In 1947, we accepted the UN’s ‘two-state’ resolution on the partition of Palestine, despite the fact that we would not have had any control of Jerusalem or the surrounding neighborhoods; The Arabs rejected it, and instead 6 Arab nations declared war on our fledgling state. In 1979 we gave up a piece of land greater than the size of the state of Israel , the Sinai, for peace with Egyptians. In 1999, we unilaterally withdrew from South Lebanon , allowing Hezbollah to set up its bases in our stead. A year later, Israeli PM Ehud Barak offered the Palestinians ‘the deal of the century’ – 97% of the West Bank, 100% of the Gaza strip, the dismantling of 63 settlements and agreeing that the East Jerusalem neighborhoods would become the capital of their new state. This too, was rejected by the Palestinians. In 2005, Israeli PM Sharon, without negotiations or demanding of concessions, unilaterally pushed through his disengagement plan that led to the dismantling of 21 settlements in the Gaza Strip and 4 in the West Bank .


No we can’t trust you….yet. Trust is earned. You see, Mr. President, I teach my girls to pay little attention to words and close attention to deeds. My people have demonstrated by deed that we are willing to pay a high price for peace and security. On more than one occasion you have said that you are committed to the Israel ’s security and will not tolerate a nuclear-capable Iran . Now it’s your turn to match your words with deeds. A two-state solution with the Palestinian people is of little relevance if Iran achieves its nuclear goals.




…Back at the UN (Jew hating, Freedom hating) headquarters in New York, the thugs in chief are mourning and expressing um.. “solidarity” with the Palestinians Muzlim terrorists.

Let us not forget how former president of the General Assembly, Miguel d’Escoto, accused Israel of apartheid during his ahem.. “speech” before the UN just a year ago.

Abba Eban once stated:

“While antisemitism denies the rights of Jews witihn society, anti-Zionism denies the same rights on the international level-denying the Jewish right to a place in the the community of nations.”

And just a quickie reminder to the ultimate THUG in Chief in the White House:

in the words of Meir Sheetrit :
The White House seems to think that Jerusalem has been the capital of Israel since Camp David, not King David.


And don’t you dare ever mention Hussein Obama’s name alongside Dr. Martin Luther King.

Dr. Martin Luther King, at a 1968 speech at Harvard said the following:

“You declare that you do not hate Jews, you are merely anti-Zionist. And I say, let the truth ring forth from high on the mountain tops.When people criticize Zionism, they mean Jews.”

Hussein obama says :

F##* the Jews! Now Pass me the Holy Kooran.


I don’t think soooooooooo~!

LONG LIVE THE STATE OF ISRAEL: the only democracy in the entire stinkin Middle East.

This Israeli father says No– We Can’t…I say:

No. We WON’T.

    What a piece of writing…Can anyone say it better than that Israeli father of 3 small daughters and Angel of Womanhonorthyself…Bravo…..
    I guess the Isreali Defense Force will not be hearing from O’Bozo till he needs a small cleanup job in Iran…

    Obama is playing with fire. The Jews are God’s chosen people. What else explains how a dispersed people can preserve itself and its traditions, while being the most educated and most successful no matter where they reside. What other people has managed this across the millennia?

    God’s people will endure. Those who try to quash them will find themselves with the short end of the stick. Just ask the middle eastern muzzies, who cannot attain the level of freedom, democracy and success of that small Jewish state.

    And yet BO has stopped all military shipments to Israel and is sending them to Hizbollah.

  4. Christopher says:

    WOW! Just WOW!

  5. Brooke says:

    Excellent letter.

    Of course, it will be dismissed as hate speech or some other such preposterous thing by the Obamazombies.

  6. jadedfellow says:

    Without the eternal passion of the Hebrew Nation, where ever they may be found, what kinda hell would this world find it’self in?

    Thank you for your passion to constantly and consistently state the truth.

  7. Debbie says:

    Great post Angel. Until recent years, I never really knew about the Muslim-Nazi connection. strong connection.

    I should not be surprised.

  8. Krystal says:

    I knew that Israel had bent over backwards in an attempt at peace. I didn’t know how much. Thank you so much for posting! I wish there were a way to send that man a response and let him know that I, for one, stand by Israel and support their RIGHT to defend themselves and their country!!!

  9. The Malcontent says:

    The better question is why, in the face of liberalism’s utter destruction of liberty, freedom and prosperity, does anyone of any religion support Obama?
    The MSM and their ‘comrades’ of the Leftist Moonbat Kook Fringe are out to destroy anything they don’t like, but that’s not going to stop us from standing up to these thugs and taking back our country!
    This Idiotic plot is right out of the Marxist Obama plan book(or Pelosi’s or take your choice).

    I love Israel and BIBI he is a wonderful man. I spit on the “o” for being so disgusting and treating BIBI with such disgrace. But our American Jews still will kiss the “O” tush. The love that EVIL person they don’t care for Israel at all. It broke my heart to see BIBI treated like he was at the WH by the JERK of a leader we unfortunately have. Never in a million years would the Jews in Israel treat anyone like the “o” treated BIBI. I think we Christians love Israel more than the American Jews.
    And where is Liberman? Why doesn’t he defend Israel? Why is he always missing in action when there is something of importance to be said?
    American Jews, just like the blacks, act like battered housewives who keep on getting a beating but loving their man, the Democrat Party.
    I am a devout Christian lady, married to a Christian man, who is also a military vet. And we both have nothing but mountains of respect for the Jewish people. I back Israel 100 percent and that’s why it boggles the mind when I see that 78% of American Jews who vote for the liberal machine..

    Israel is an important ally of ours, but, more important to me, Israel reminds me of ourselves…when we were going West seeking land or fortune, when we made do with what we had, when we faced adversity and prevailed.
    I was brought up in Oregon, on a Western heritage mindset. (Some of my ancestors were pioneers). Therefore, I like much of what I know about Israel

    Hi Angel, someone is intimating me by using my name and posting in your blog on the post right under my real one.
    Although whoever it was speaks the truth, it was not my comment.
    Kindly delete it for me…
    Thanks and keep up the great blogging.

  12. Bunni says:

    Very well said! God bless this Patriot.
    Obummer is America’s and Israel’s biggest enemy.

  13. Matt says:

    That was great Angel. That man demonstrated more knowledge of reality in this post than Obama has in his entire political career.

  14. slamdunk says:

    Powerful letter. Thanks for sharing.

  15. Snarky Basterd says:

    Unfortunately, the only thing that Obama supports about Israel is Iran’s desire to annihilate it.

    clear, moving, articulate and clearly way over Mr. Obama’s head.
