Israelis Begin to Pay the Price for the Annapolis Conference
Ido Zoldan was 29 years old, a loving husband and father of two young children. That is Ido with his wife and children in the photo above. Zoldan was murdered Monday night, while driving past the Arab village of Funduk, between the settlements of Kedumim and Karnei Shomron, when Palestinian gunmen opened fire. The Fatah's Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades said it carried out the attack to demonstrate its opposition to the planned Annapolis conference. Fatah, of course, is the Palestinian Arab faction headed by the "moderate" President of the Palestinian Authority, Mahmoud Abbas, who will lead the Palestinian delegation to the Annapolis conference, and on whom the hopes of the United States and the so-called Quartet are based.
What I most hate about the idealistic fantasies of the so-called Peace Camp is that their schemes are paid for in the blood of ordinary people. How many, both Jew and Arab, have now died as a result of the Oslo Accords, the Gaza Disengagement and now, the Annapolis peace conference! How many children such as the Zoldans will grow up without a father, or a mother! Nobel Peace Prize winner Shimon Peres, before he was driven from the Prime Minister's office by public outrage over terrorist bombings, once famously said that "peace, like war, has its sacrifices." How obscene. These are sacrifices to Moloch, whose worshipers threw their own children into the fire. Now the offerings to the idol Annapolis have begun.
