Heroes they're not!

Yes it takes real guts to attack someone personally on the internet. The pity is the JC does a pretty poor job in protecting bona fide bloggers from the vile and malicious trolls who now infest this website.

So here's something to really get up their collective noses -

Likud MK Danny Danon has set up a Facebook page calling for Israel to annexe all of Judea and Samaria in response to the 'Palestinian' unilateralism at the United Nations. If you click on the link, it will take you directly to that page's wall, where you can 'like' the page. You can tell that it's just getting started: Right now, it has less 'likes' than I have (that's okay - you can like me too). Here's more about the page and the campaign.
“The campaign will call for the Israeli government to respond to the Palestinians’ unilateral step by taking a Zionist unilateral action of annexing the Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria,” Danon said.
The Likud legislator said the campaign was intended to remind the public and the government that many major decisions by Israel were taken unilaterally, including declaring the state by former prime minister David Ben-Gurion, annexing eastern Jerusalem by former prime minister Levi Eshkol and the annexation of the Golan Heights by former prime minister Menachem Begin.
He neglected to mention former prime minister Ariel Sharon’s unilateral withdrawal from the Gaza Strip.
Support for such a move is growing as the Palestinians’ September 20 initiative comes closer. More than half the Likud faction has endorsed the idea, including ministers Gilad Erdan, Yisrael Katz, Moshe Kahlon, and Yuli Edelstein.
Vice Premier Moshe Ya’alon has also spoken about Israel taking unilateral actions without being specific. Outside the Likud, Israel Beiteinu minister Uzi Landau and Habayit Hayehudi’s minister Daniel Hershkowitz have endorsed the move.
“The Prime Minister’s Office doesn’t comment on the issue, but it helps Netanyahu to show that there are possible internal actions for Israel and political risks for the Palestinians,” Danon said. “The Palestinians need to know that they have a lot to lose by taking a unilateral approach.”
Meanwhile, 'Peace Now' director general Yariv Guggenheimer Oppenheimer expresses confidence that the coalition will not take such a 'suicidal action.' I would say that right now, the most suicidal action we could take would be coming to the table on the 'Palestinians' terms.
But please go ahead and 'like' the page. The Leftists on Twitter are complaining about how few 'likes' it has.
