“Israel’s settlement policy is absurd”.
This is a statement from former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in 1980. She is recorded in a secret diplomatic cable written by Ambassador John Robinson on May 4th 1980.
Teachers comment was a response to Israel Prime Minister Menachem Begin. The head of the Government in Israel refused to accept a ban on Jewish settlements on the Mountains of Zion, the ancient homeland of the Jewish people.
Thatcher said at the time that all “efforts to convince Mr. Begin that his West Bank policy was absurd, and that there should not be Israeli settlements on the West Bank, had failed to move him.”
“His response was that Judea and Samaria had been Jewish in biblical times and that they should therefore be so today,” she said.
A British ambassador to Israel warned as early as 1980 that Israel would detonate a nuclear bomb in case of a new war with the Arabs, according to previously secret state documents released on Thursday. ”If they [Israelis] are to be destroyed, they will go down fighting this time. They will be ready to use their atomic weapon.”
The papers reveal that, during a meeting with French President Valery Giscard d’Estaing in November 1979, Thatcher admitted she had “never had a more difficult man to deal with” than Begin.
Giscard, according to the report, seemed to agree, saying he had “always been surprised at the degree of support which the Labour government had given Israel”.
The archives reveal President Giscard “did not know Mr. Begin, whom he had never met, but he thought his approach fanatical and unrealistic.”

People who do not have the Bible as their guiding light, will refuse to accept that God is still faithful to His chosen people. God’s faithfulness towards His promises, are not deleted by His peoples faithlessness.
What advantage, then, is there in being a Jew, or what value is there in circumcision? Much in every way! First of all, the Jews have been entrusted with the very words of God.
What if some were unfaithful? Will their unfaithfulness nullify God’s faithfulness? Not at all! Let God be true, and every human being a liar.

That Margaret Teacher do not accept the supremacy of God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel, is a tragedy for her. Not for Israel.
The secret British cables, reveals what should have been pure logic to all educated men.
The last war on Israel will bring the Planet on the edge of a nuclear confrontation. The Jewish people has told the Arab League between the lines, that the Jewish state will take their neighbor’s with them into the abyss, if anyone plans another Holocaust on the Jewish people.
That is a reasonable message from Jerusalem, not to be misunderstood. Like the US, Israel has a nuclear capability that will be revealed if the statehood is under treat of inhalation or total destruction.
