Thoughts The Night Before The Speech
"What has been is what will be, and what has been done is what will be done; and there is nothing new under the sun."
The world's superpower has elected a new government with new policies, raising concerns that the new government is less committed to the Zionist cause than its predecessor. Understandings and declarations from just a few years ago have apparently been abrogated and disavowed. The future of Jewish settlement in the Yishuv has been placed in doubt. Yet - or, shall we say, on the other hand - the leader of the world continues to express support for the Jewish people.
The leader of the Yishuv cannot risk offending our patron over mundane matters like settlement, or a Jewish state, or how many Arab states shall exist west of the Jordan River. Arguments about history are a waste. What matters now is ensuring that, whatever else, the relationship with the leader of the free world not ever, heaven forbid, be compromised.
As the leaders of the Jewish community have quickly come to understand, only a policy of havlagah - restraint - can secure our future.
