    Yes, SodaStream is
    a fine company as are many in Israel. The so-called settlers are a paradigm of
    strength and virtue, living and working in the 4000-year historical Jewish land;
    a fact that makes them the most indigenous of indigenous people anywhere in the
    world.

    When Bernie Farber
    says that there ought to be “land swap(s) that helps fashion a contiguous
    Palestinian state that can thrive side by side with Israel, where many
    SodaStreams can flourish and change hard-held paradigms” we are glimpsing his
    core beliefs that have made him a critic of Israel, a critic of Harper, a critic
    of settlers, and a fierce advocate for a “two-state solution” that would damage
    and shrink Israel. Palestinian rights mean more to some two-state solutionists
    than the security and rights of Israel. Bernie seems to have always been an
    advocate for Palestinian rights over Jewish rights in that part of the world.

    How does he figure
    that a “contiguous Palestinian state” can be crafted from a land that would be
    cut in halves or thirds if we accede to Islamist demands? Why would Bernie want
    to risk having jihadists – who have never accepted Israel and never will
    because of their beliefs in Islamic supremacy – living beside Jews? Why is it
    not the responsibility of Arab states to carve a state out of their 22 for the
    refugees of wars perpetrated and resulting from Arabs aggression against
    Israel?

    As Bernie sits pretty
    in Canada, living large and free in the Diaspora, why would anyone listen to
    him when he tells us that Israel must do as he says just because he wants
    Palestinians to gain domination over the Jews whom Bernie wants to submit to
    Islam according to his leftist political agenda?

    Why does Mr. Farber acknowledge that these lands are referred to as “occupied” as well as “disputed” and then continues to constantly refer to them as “occupied”? Occupied from whom? The haters of Israel use the term “occupied” to give Israel’s rightful presence in Judea and Samaria a negative connotation. Why does he feed this lie? Why does he support the anti-Zionist position? Israel has more legal claim to these lands than the Arabs and yes, many in the world buy into the Arab claim but until this is settled by treaty or other agreement, the land is “disputed”!

    Mr. Farber hopes that the “Focus can be placed on the
    absolute need to creatively design a land swap that helps fashion a contiguous
    Palestinian state”. Why is Mr. Farber so
    concerned about a “contiguous” Palestinian state yet seemingly unconcerned about
    indefensible borders for Israel? Why
    does he support the establishment of a Palestinian state – any Palestinian
    state – when the PA and Hamas call for that state to be Jew-free as well as calling
    for the destruction of Israel and the expulsion of the Jews therein? I am angered
    by people like Mr. Farber, supposedly intelligent people, who close their eyes,
    ears and minds to the obvious hatred that will never allow for peace.

    Mr. Farber, were you aware that there already was a two-state
    solution, Israel and Jordan? Why would you support the establishment of yet
    another? The Arabs already have 99.4% of the land of the Middle East. It’s
    enough!

    The tragedy is that a man like Farber could have ever become the CEO of the CJC. He is much better suited working for an anti-Israel rich person who subsidizes First Nation projects, like he does now.

    How sad to read the comments here. I know this is not how many in the Jewish community feel. They are more open to peace and accommodation than folks like Steve and Steve. Still sad though to see the level of hate towards Palestinians.
