?


In english there s a simple answer
In English, there’s a simple answer:

cease-fire: 1. An order to stop firing

2. A truce


But the Palestinians use an Islamic term for cease-fire – “Hudna”– and this word has a very, very different meaning.

Hudna: temporarily reducing hostilities against an enemy, often until tactically advantagous to resume the attack.


The historical and religious meaning
The historical and religious meaning

  • “Hudna” was first used in 628, when the Prophet Mohammed entered into a peace-pact with the elders of Quraysh. This pact was supposed to last for 9 years, 9 months and 9 days.

  • Less than two years later, when Mohammed’s troops had gathered enough strength, they violated their oath and attacked the Quraysh, defeating their enemy and conquering the city of Mecca.

“Hudna” - a code-word for treaty violation


So what is a middle eastern cease fire
So what is a Middle Eastern cease-fire?

Israelis cease,Palestinians fire.


Now can we depend on palestinian terrorists to actually put down their guns and suicide bomb belts
Now, can we depend on Palestinian terrorists to actually put down their guns and suicide bomb-belts?

Yeah, Sure, Absolutely….


About as much as you can depend on
About as much as you can depend on… down their guns and suicide bomb-belts?

  • A drug addict to manage a pharmacy

  • A pedophile to run a day care center

  • A Ku Klux Klan member to teach racial tolerance

  • A chocoholic to stop after just one bite


And what do the palestinians want
And what do the Palestinians want? down their guns and suicide bomb-belts?

A three-month Islamic “Hudna”

That’s not a cease-fire, that’s a summer vacation!


A three month hudna vacation will give the palestinians time to
A three-month “Hudna” vacation down their guns and suicide bomb-belts?will give the Palestinians time to:

  • Run more of their famous summer campsto recruit and train the next generation of terrorists

  • Smuggle in better weapons and build more bombs

  • Carefully prepare for their next wave of human-bombs

All this just in time for…


The start of israel s next school year
The start of Israel’s next school year down their guns and suicide bomb-belts?


And while the palestinians pretend that this hudna is really a truce
And while the Palestinians pretend that this “Hudna” is really a truce,

Israel will be expected to stop all its efforts to prevent terrorism


It ll be deja vu all over again

Who can forget that: really a truce,

It’ll be deja-vu all over again

Every time Israel has tried to make peace,

Every time peace seemed just around the corner,

Palestinian terrorists went on the rampage.

It happened at the height of the Oslo peace process,

It happened after the Camp David peace talks.

And if it happens this time…


Sadly we all know what that means
Sadly, we all know what that means really a truce,

More buses blown up

More cafes destroyed by suicide-bombers

More funerals for dead Israeli children


What should happen in a normal world that is
What should happen? really a truce,(in a normal world, that is)

It’s simple.

The Palestinians should end their double-talk and

STOP THE TERRORISM once and for all!


For starters maybe they should try actually reading the road map
