There is going to be a very noticeable and for some a very uncomfortable transition to a new reality when the monarchy is restored to Israel. Some adjustment in thinking will have to take place in a very short time if you have not already begun to do so.
Here are some examples to get you started:
1) The Housing Minister will not be subjected to public censure for announcing a decision to build houses.
...This is...an action that creates an unnecessary confrontation with the international community at a time when we are making an effort to persuade elements in the international community to reach a better deal with Iran.
2) No Jew will seek "permission" from any gentile to serve HKB"H on Har Habayit (or anywhere else for that matter).
...Israeli officials have asked Jordan permission for Jewish tefilos on Hay Habayis. ...the Jordanians denied the Israeli request. ...a Jordanian delegation is expected to arrive in Israel in the coming days to address “Israeli violations of the status quo pertaining to Har Habayis”.
3) Murderers of Jews will no longer be kept alive and well and educated and entertained until such time that they will be freed in some perverted "confidence building measure" with the enemies of Israel. (Efforts will instead be invested in building the confidence of the Jewish people in their monarchy and in HKB"H's justice.)
Shock and outrage have resonated through the pro-Israel world after a thinly-veiled threat was directed at Israel by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry last week. As part of the Obama Administration’s ongoing effort to strong-arm Israel into coughing up harmful concessions to the Palestinian Authority, Kerry warned that if the present negotiations fail Israel will face an “intifada”....
The core assumption in Secretary Kerry’s remark is that Israel lacks the self-respect and confidence to carry out justice, and shall instead willingly suffer some measure of Palestinian-Arab terrorism. Though Kerry is certainly seeking to prey upon it, this is a weakness of Israel’s own making.
A bill must immediately be filed in the Knesset to institute capital punishment. Such a bill will serve two important purposes. 1) Even the mere prospect of its passage will command respect and deter the possibility of terrorist violence against Israel; and 2) It will launch an important conversation within Israeli government and society about one of the key reasons for the State’s very existence – the protection of Jewish life.
What Secretary Kerry has helped to highlight is that among Israel’s most pressing domestic problems remains the systemic failure of justice and law enforcement in governing the Arab residents living within its jurisdiction. Israel does indeed have the ability to prosecute and punish crime. The prohibition against its actually doing so, however, is an informal but key aspect of the “peace process” that has been translated into judicial, military and police operational culture.
Proponents of anti-Zionist, appeasement policies refer to this restraint as “the price of peace” as if there were something noble about it. The result is that the Arabs have little reason to expect that law will be enforced and crime duly punished.
... the Arab terrorist who commits murder can expect that his release is only a matter of time, dependent simply upon the next prisoner exchange or “goodwill gesture” that will be forced upon Israel.I don't know about you, but I am more than ready for this.
