I am Quoted in CNS News

"It is utterly devastating to realize how [ill]-equipped mentally and politically Israel's current leadership is in facing the challenges to Israel's existence, security and Zionist ethos," said Yisrael Medad, a resident of the West Bank settlement of Shilo[h] and a volunteer spokesman for the Jewish communities there. Since 1992, Israel has been going in the wrong direction -
yielding territory, granting the Palestinians a form of self-rule and arming the
Palestinians, Medad said in a telephone interview on Friday. Israel needs to be firm with the Palestinians and tell them no terror. Maybe they can have some kind of autonomy now, and maybe sometime in the future when they've stopped killing themselves and everyone else, they can talk about more, he said. For the past 80 years, the Palestinian national movement has been at odds with the Jewish national movement - Zionism, said Medad. "The way out is certainly not yielding territory and pampering a people that continuously violate every agreement you've signed with them."
